Dinner at Bistro Grace.

Last Christmas, my sister gave us a gift certificate to Bistro Grace in Northside…

Tonight, I met Genifer at Hoffner Park so we could finally have dinner at Bistro Grace…

We never noticed the lovely detailing on Bistro Grace’s ceiling…

We started with some deviled eggs with mushrooms…

Genifer ordered the Grilled Caesar Salad…

I ordered their Thursday Shrimp Special

Everything was delicious! I had the shrimp special last time we were at Bistro Grace, and it was amazing. This shrimp special was different but every bit as good. We finished our meal with a trio of creme brulee…

Tremendous meal. And we still have enough left to come back next week to share some beer cheese with pretzels, some more deviled eggs and another one of Bistro Grace’s amazing burgers. 😀🥗🍤❤️

Thank you the gift certificate, Shannon! It was delicious!

It’s Skyline time!

It was Skyline time for Lunch today! YUM! 😀🌭🍝❤️

Tickle Pickle’s Wing Wednesday.

Last week, we checked out Tickle Pickle’s Taco Tuesday. Tonight, we checked out Tickle Pickle’s Wing Wednesday

The wings came six to an order with your choice of BBQ, Buffalo or Mango Habanero…

We got an order of the BBQ wings and an order of the Mango Habanero wings…

The BBQ wings were really good. They were really big wings too…

And Mango Habanero were really spicy but delicious as well…

Who knew that Tickle Pickle was more than just really delicious burgers? Now, we have a bunch of different delicious reasons to stop into Tickle Pickle. 😀🐔❤️

It’s what’s for dinner.

Genifer made this delicious cheesy buffalo chicken pasta again for dinner…

Cheesy, spicy goodness with garlic bread! It’s quickly becoming one of my new favorites!😀🧀🔥🐔❤️

Taco Tuesday.

Today was another Taco Tuesday at Silverglades on Eighth

I love their Taco Tuesdays. 😀🌮❤️

Pop-Up Ramen at NSYC.

We saw on Instagram that every Monday in December Northside Yacht Club was going to serving scratch-made ramen noodles by Chef Hideki Harada, former owner and chef of Kaze in OtR! Hideki and his wife Yuko are opening Kiki, a Japanese restaurant in College Hill in late spring until then they’ll be serving their Pop-Up Ramen at NSYC! It sounded really interesting so we thought we’d go check it out…

I didn’t take a photo of it, but NYSC was packed tonight. Thankfully after waiting for a little bit, we were finally able to belly up to the bar for big bowls of ramen…

Genifer ordered the mushroom ramen…

And I ordered “Tonkotsu” pork ramen with extra eggs…

The ramen was delicious! And the eggs soaking up the broth were outstanding. They were my favorite part. As we were finishing our bowls, NYSC ran out of ramen. They started serving ramen around 4pm and by 7:30pm, they had gone through all 150 servings of noodles. I have next Monday off so hopefully we can sneak into Yacht Club early and get some more delicious, delicious ramen. And we can’t wait to check out Kiki just up the street from us in College Hill when it opens late this spring. 😀🍜❤️

And check out Kiki College Hill’s Kickstarter holiday drive to help get them started!

Sammy’s Craft Burgers & Beers.

All the way back in August last summer, CityBeat gave $25 gift card to Sammy’s Craft Burgers & Beers in Blue Ash for a photo I took during Cincinnati Burger Week. And for the last year, every time Genifer would ask where I wanted to go out to eat, my answer was the same… Sammy’s. It has become something of an on-running joke. But joke no more. Today, we finally got to eat at Sammy’s Craft Burgers & Beers

I was really digging Parkway Brewing Company’s logo…

We started with these incredible buffalo chicken roll-ups with ranch dipping sauce…

Genifer ordered the Guacamole Burger with guac, chipotle mayo, bacon, pepper jack cheese, tomato and field greens…

I ordered the Bourbon Burger with bourbon sauce, fried onion straws, Swiss cheese, mayo, tomato and field greens…

The burgers were outstanding! Sammy’s burgers should always be in the near the top of the list in the conversation for best burgers in Cincinnati. They were that good. And they had a great selection of beers on tap too…

Now I can’t wait to go back to Sammy’s for another one of their amazing burgers. Such great stuff! And thanks again to CityBeat for the gift card! It was delicious! 😀🍔❤️

Our best-laid plans.

You know what they say about best-laid plans, right? This morning we got up and moving in a very timely fashion for a Saturday morning. We walked Oscar and headed out to Cincinnati Music Hall for the Crafty Supermarket. We got down into Over-the-Rhine a little after half-past eleven and it was already a mess. There were people everywhere around Music Hall, especially at the entrance. It was like watching ants flowing into and out of the mouth of their anthill. The parking lot under Washington Park was already full, and the garage behind Music Hall wanted ten bucks to park. It was more than we could bear just to wander around a silly, overcrowded arts show. What a mess. I thought it was much better last year when it was at UC’s student center. So we packed it in and drove back to Northside to park our butts on a stool at Second Place for the Arsenal versus Manchester United match and the Crosstown Shootout between Cincinnati and Xavier. One of the games ended really well, the other did not. Xavier: 👍 Arsenal: 👎 While we were at Second Place, Genifer this amazing cheeseburger that was a steal at only $6…

This amazing cheeseburger that was only $6…

And I had this incredible breakfast sammich

It was delicious! When we got home we hung out with Oscar and just watched some of the college football conference championship games…

Tonight’s moon was beautiful. We can’t wait to see tomorrow’s Super Moon…

So our Saturday ended up being completely different from how I thought it was going to be. And I wouldn’t trade it for anything. 😀🏀⚽️🏈❤️

Taken with Instagram.

There were delicious Holtman’s Donuts in the office this morning…

We were celebrating a coworker who is leaving to start a new adventure…

I got some new pens at the art supply store…

And it was rainy all day in downtown Cincinnati…

Taken with Instagram. 😀📷❤️

Tickle Pickle Taco Tuesday.

I met Genifer after work tonight for Taco Tuesday at Tickle Pickle

We noticed their little sidewalk sandwich board outside on our way home from dinner at Django Western Taco last Tuesday

I ordered two ground beef tacos and Genifer ordered two black bean tacos…

They were really outstanding tacos! And I love that they were soft shelled tacos too. They were really packed full of all sorts of good stuff. We also got a side of Tickle Pickle’s really delicious mac&cheese…

We really didn’t need the mac&cheese but it’s so good. After finishing our tacos, we got a couple of milkshakes to go. Genifer got an Oreo Speedwagon shake and I got a Flan Halen strawberry shake…

Next week, we’ll have to try Tickle Pickle’s Wing Wednesday. And it’s anything like their Taco Tuesday, we’re going to be in from a real treat. Because I can’t wait to go back to Tickle Pickle for more tacos! 😀🌮❤️
