Downtown details.

I just love this view from the ninth floor of 302 West Third Street…

And I also love looking up at Carew Tower as I’m walking down Fourth Street on my way to catch the Metro 17 bus home…

Good evening from downtown Cincinnati. πŸ˜€πŸŒ‡β€οΈ

Oh, and the little #CincyStreetBot in the crosswalk at Walnut and Seventh Streets doesn’t look like it’s holding up so well…

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

Downtown Big Boy.

The corner of downtown I work in is somewhat of a food void. There just isn’t a lot in the southwest corner of downtown’s Central Business District as far as food options go. Even when we lived downtown, we didn’t even go over to that corner of downtown because there isn’t much there. At all. But today, I ventured out to try to find something for lunch. After wandering for a bit, I ended up at the relatively new Frisch’s Big Boy in Carew Tower…Β 

I ended up getting a patty melt and fries to go…

And it was pretty good stuff. I have a feel Big Boy might become one of my new go-to places when I need to run out to get something to eat for lunch. πŸ˜€πŸ”πŸŸβ€οΈ

Checking out the WyzeCams.

We had an extra WyzeCamΒ just laying around the house so I took it to work with me and pointed out the window at my desk so we could watch the sky over Carew Tower

It’s a pretty nice view. Good morning from downtown Cincinnati.Β πŸ˜€πŸ“·πŸ™οΈβ€οΈ

Carew Tower gets the All-Star Game treatment.

We went over to Fountain Square to see a 30-story image of a vintage Red Stockings player get projected onto the side of Carew Tower for the first time this evening…

This brightness of the image was a little disappointing but it’s still pretty dang cool. πŸ™‚
