We have our tickets!

It’s going to be the NEW biggest match of the season! Heck. It’s going to be the biggest match in the short but remarkable history of FC Cincinnati…

Our tickets for the huge US Open Cup semi-final match between FC Cincinnati and New York Red Bulls of MLS tarrived in the mail last night…

And it’s a good thing we’re season ticket holders with the first opportunity to buy our tickets to the match almost immediately after the US Open Cup quarter-final win over Miami FC because it was just announced this morning that CINvNY is officially…

Tickets went on sale to the general public yesterday at 1 pm and this morning it was just announced that FC Cincy’s US Open Cup semi-finalmatch at Nippert Stadium is officially SOLD OUT! FC|C President and General Manager Jeff Berding said the sales team sold 16,000 tickets in roughly seven hours. WOW. Just wow.

“The atmosphere at Nippert Stadium is going to be spectacular.” And I cannot wait! 
😀⚽️🏆❤️

It’s what’s for dinner.

Genifer made another one of the Kroger Prep+Pared meals with all the ingredients you need included in the box for dinner tonight. This time it was a Chimichurri Steak with burnt carrots and goat cheese. It sounded pretty tasty to me…

Those meals sure are delicious. Genifer also got a Kroger Prep+Pared Vietnamese-inspired pork meal that we’re going to try later in the week. YUM! 😀🥩❤️

Habañero Burrito Monday!

It’s been a while since we last did a Habañero Burrito Monday

We brought home two burritos and chips and salsa for just $11.75. You can’t beat that…

Habañero’s burritos are huge and oh so tasty. 😀🌯❤️

We ate this.

It was so good when we had it on Friday that we shared another amazing NYPD cheese pizza this evening…

Their cheese pizza so good and so incredibly inexpensive. It’s really hard not to order it all the time. 😀🍕❤️

Our Community Shield.

Another season of English Premier League soccer is almost upon us! In honor of Arsenal beating Chelsea on penalties in the annual FA Community Shield match

We made a whole bunch of little pancake community shields of our own…

Turns out, the community shield is delicious with plenty of syrup and a big helping of scrambled eggs! 😀⚽️🏆🥞❤️

ps. English Premier League is back in full effect next weekend

FC Cincinnati versus Orlando City B.

IT’S FC CINCINNATI MATCH DAY THIRTEEN! FC Cincinnati was taking Orlando City B…

We were walking into Nippert right as all the supporters groups were marching in…

O say can you see…

That is some pretty serious hair going on right there…

And here we go…

GOAL FC CINCINNATI! Kyle Greig put FC|C up 1-0 in the sixth minute

 

FC Cincinnati was awarded a penalty kick. Aodhan Quinn stepped up to take the penalty and put it toward the bottom left corner…

But Orlando’s keeper made a huge save. And then just minutes later, Orlando equalized to make it 1-1…

At the half, it was still 1-1…

SPRINKLES!

Orlando City took the lead 2-1…

Tonight, FC Cincinnati surpassed their own USL regular season attendance record of 24,376 set against Orlando City B back in 2016 to set a new USL regular season single game attendance record

And… FC Cincinnati outdrew the attendance of every MLS game this evening. The funniest part was Orlando City B played in front of more people than the Orlando City MLS squad by almost 5,000 people. We hung around and watched the match for a bit. But then we decided to head for home a bit early to try to beat the traffic before the Uber prices shot through the roof…

On the way out, we got two of these incredible posters commemorating the US Open Cup win over the Chicago Fire. Come to find out when we got home, wouldn’t you know it? FC|C’s Danni Konig scored in the 92nd minute to salvage a point from the 2-2 draw. I guess that’s what we get for leaving early. Oh well. We’ve already claimed our US Open Cup semi-final tickets for the huge match on August 15th against NY Red Bulls. And we’ll see you there! 😀⚽️❤️

Higher Gravity Bar and Bottle Shop.

Today was Higher Gravity Bar and Bottle Shop‘s official grand opening…

We stopped in to check it out a couple of Friday’s ago and stopped in for the second half of FC|C’s big US Open Cup win over Miami FC

It looked like we were going to be on the local evening news…

And we were right. They great doing guest flights of beers for $5 from local breweries. This was the flight from our beloved Urban Artifact including UA’s Fire Iron, Keypunch and Flash Lamp. Somehow, we missed Fire Iron at Urban Artifact. It was outstanding…

Chef Josh from Django Western Taco was out back slinging tacos…

And we shared a steak quesadilla!

Higher Gravity is a wonderful addition to our Northside neighborhood. 😀🍺🍻❤️

Easing into the weekend.

I switched my Summer Hours with a coworker today so she didn’t have to use a half vacation day. So we didn’t get to go on any adventures. But we will next week. This evening we just ordered a large cheese pizza from NYPD Pizza...

And it was amazing. I had forgotten just how good a plain cheese pizza could be. We also got some delicious NYPD popcorn chicken as well…

Such good stuff. Afterwards, we watched some of the Reds game and a couple of pretty bad movies on Netflix. It was a really nice, low-key relaxing Friday. 😀🍕🐔🎬❤️

Good evening from Northside.

It was another beautiful evening in Northside…

😀☁️❤️

Odds & ends.

The pretty flowers on our tree in our front yard were covered in dew this morning…

And there were some more really beautiful clouds above Northside this evening…

😀🌺☁️❤️
