Our New Years Eve.

Tonight, Genifer and our friend, Tayler co-hosted a little New Years Eve celebration at Chris and Tayler’s house just across Northside…

 

And we got to see Sabot LOL again

He’s getting so big…

It was a great little low-key celebration with some really good friends…

We hope everyone had a nice & safe New Years Eve, and we wish everyone a great start to their 2019. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŽŠ๐ŸŽ‰โค๏ธ

Bay Horse Cafe to celebrate 40 years.

This afternoon the office closed a little early to walk down to Bay Horse Cafe

We paused to celebrate our CEO and fearless leader, Doug Studer’s 40th-anniversary of work at Deskey…

Forty years with one company is a very momentous achievement…

SURPRISE!

It was a fun afternoon celebrating an incredible career achievement. And Bay Horse Cafe is a great little place. I can’t wait to head back soon for another beer and maybe grab some lunch from Bay Horse sometime soon.ย ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŽ‚๐Ÿปโค๏ธ

Fourth of July fireworks.

Once again this year, our neighbors a few streets over from us shot off a bunch of Fourth of July fireworks which we got to enjoy by just looking out of third-floor bedroom window…

We decided to call this their grand finale even though we could still hear fireworks going off around our house until well after midnight…

I think it’s really neat when you don’t even have to leave your house to watch a pretty impressive display of Fourth of July fireworks.ย ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŽ†โค๏ธ

Celebrating Genifer’s birthday.

I met Genifer at Higher Gravity again this evening so we could celebrate her birthday. Our friends Cory and Amy met up with us with their sleepy kiddos…

Higher Gravity was doing a fun little tasting tonight. They were having a side by side tasting of Founder’s KBS and CBS. Chef Josh from Django Western Taco was at Higher Gravityย pairing the beers with a Cinnamon Toast Crunch French Toast Tacos with Maple Pork Belly as well as Django guac and salsa. The tacos were pretty dang awesome and so were the beers. Both were gone before I even thought about taking a photo. Speaking of awesome, we also all shared a huge Chameleon Pizza

Eventually, word got out that it was Genifer’s birthday, and the guys at Higher Gravity gave her a bottle of Southern Tier’s Monstrosus for her special day…

That was super nice of them…

It was another really fun evening! But we always have a really good time at Higher Gravity.ย ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒฎ๐Ÿ•๐Ÿป๐Ÿพโค๏ธ

Opening Day Parade Party.

They’ve kind of made a mess of the start of the baseball season this year. The season officially started last Thursday but the first Reds game was rained out and played on Friday. In Cincinnati, there’s always the big Findlay Market Opening Day Parade before the first game and it’s always been on Opening Day for as long as I long as I’ve lived in Cincinnati. But this year’s parade wasn’t until today. Because I guess the parade has to be on a Monday for some reason. Today, we also had our annual Opening Day Party at work. There was big grill outย with all sorts of food…

And we played a bunch of different games like pin the baseball on the catcher…

It made for a very fun afternoon at work celebrating the return of another baseball season toย Cincinnati.ย ๐Ÿ˜€โšพ๏ธ๐Ÿ”๐ŸŒญโค๏ธ

Loaded tots & knots.

After work this evening we went to Taft’s Brewpourium for a celebratory beer or two with some loaded tots and knots after my six-week post-op checkup

It was a delicious end to a pretty great day.ย ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿป๐Ÿ•โค๏ธ

NYE at Higher Gravity.

We went to one of our favorite Northside watering holes,ย Higher Gravity to celebrate New Year’s Eve…

We met up with our friends Chris and Tayler and moved into this little alcove…

We brought a bunch of little poppers with us…

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

It was a really great New Year’s Eve!ย ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿฅ‚๐Ÿพโค๏ธ

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…

Higher celebrations.

We went out to Higher Gravity after The Game was finally over to celebrate Genifer’s latest accomplishments, completing her master’s certificate in human resources…

We’ve been trying to remember to use our Untappd app
