HIghGrain Brewery.

I had a few vacation days left that I needed to use by the end of the year. So I took today off work. We ran some errands, and stopped to check out the relatively new HighGrain Brewery in Silverton just north of Pleasant Ridge…

The interior was pretty stark. We just bellied up to the bar…

We tried their Imperial Stout and Maple Brown Ale

Their Maple Brown Ale was really good. And the stout wasn’t bad. We looked at their menu but nothing really jumped out at us. And we left after we finished our beer. It’s always fun to try new places. Just some are better than others. πŸ˜€πŸΊβ€οΈ

PIZZA PARTY!

We had a pizza party tonight! A large Papa Johns cheese pizza and cheesy bread…

I love pizza party nights! πŸ˜€πŸ•β€οΈ

Good evening from Northside.

Good evening from our backyard in Northside. That one star was so bright. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸŒŸβ€οΈ

Checking in on the WyzeCams.

As I was walking home from the bus stop, I was checking in on the WyzeCams

Genifer made this delicious turkey meatloaf for dinner tonight…

And after dinner, we shut off the lights to head upstairs and our tree looked so pretty…

It’s always good to be home. πŸ˜€πŸ“·πŸ¦ƒπŸŽ„β€οΈ

Downtown details.

It was a really pretty afternoon in downtown Cincinnati. It was a little bit windy but the temperature was pretty nice for the beginning of December. So I ran out to get something to eat this afternoon. I walked over to The Banks. Along the way, I stopped to admire The Skystar Wheel with the Roebling Suspension Bridge in the background…

It’s become a permanent addition to The Banks. We still need to go ride on it. I bet the views are pretty spectacular. I ended up getting this sammich from Burgerfi

It was okay. I also stopped to admire the Rose Lavelle mural on West Freedom Way…

And when I was leaving work, Paul Bown Stadium was all lit up for some reason…

I love all the unique sights in downtown Cincinnati. πŸ˜€β€οΈ

Another lost shoe.

I saw another lost shoe this afternoon just outside of the office…

I really don’t understand how someone can lose their shoe. But my guess would be that it fell out of a bag or something. But I still don’t understand. πŸ€”πŸ‘ β€οΈ

Good morning from Northside.

It looks a lot like Christmas.

When I got to work this morning, the lobby of 302 West Third was beautifully decorated for the holidays…

Later, I ran out to get something for lunch and stopped to admire the tree in the atrium at the Westin Hotel across from Fountain Square…

And the tree in Carew Tower…

I was walking in what was left of downtown Cincinnati’s Skywalk and noticed that the escalators in Carew Tower that were always broken had been replaced with stairs…

And the Hyatt Regency had a pretty tree too…

On my way to the bus after work, I stopped to admire the holiday window display at Bromwell’s on Fourth Street…

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas in downtown Cincinnati. πŸ˜€πŸŽ„πŸŽ…β€οΈ

Thanks, Timehop!

Look how pretty the sky over Northside was one year ago

And I captured this photo back when lived downtown…

Thanks for the memories, Timehop. πŸ˜€πŸ¦•β€οΈ

After winning the Battle 4 Atlantis, Michigan jumped all the way to number 4…
