It’s Skyline time!

It was Skyline time for lunch today…

I tried one of their new limited time andouille sausage coneys…

It was pretty good but I’ll just stick with my normal cheese coneys with extra mustard and no onions. 😀🧀🌭❤️

A foggy morning.

It was very foggy this morning in downtown Cincinnati…

😀🌁❤️

Taco Tuesday.

It was Taco Tuesday again at Silverglades Deli on Eighth…

YUM!  😀🌮❤️

You Hold the Key.

You Hold the Key is a community awareness and engagement campaign aimed to promote dialogue and inspire empathy around the issue of homelessness in Greater Cincinnati through public art.

 Today, I saw some of the You Hold the Key artworks along Eighth Street on my way to pick up something for lunch…

 ArtWorks transformed people and places through investments in creativity. Each year, ArtWorks employs local youth and professional artists to create community impact across our region. 2017 marks the 10th Anniversary of the ArtWorks mural program. They believe our city is a gallery and are proud of the 100+ murals in 37 Cincinnati neighborhoods and 7 nearby cities which celebrate our history, heroes and legends, to date.

ArtWorks is expanding its strategic focus to support the awareness and advancement of key regional issues by partnering with organizations working on the front-lines of these issues, to create community dialogue through art. ArtWorks’ social art practice hinges on the power of art and art-making to serve as a catalyst to promote health and wellness, spark conversation and invoke empathy.

Seen and noted.

I noted all these cute little pumpkins outside of Woods Hardware on Ninth Street in downtown Cincinnati and then noticed there were even more pumpkins inside…

And Genifer saw this Praying Mantis while we were out walking Oscar…

Reds baseball game #7.

Where has the summer gone? As the baseball starts to wind down and thoughts begin to turn to the postseason almost mercifully, today was the final home game of the Reds baseball season. It would be our seventh Reds game of this baseball season, and the Reds were ending with a homestand against my favorite  American League team, Boston Red Sox…

These Ballpark Express self-serve, automated pick-up stations are the first of their kind at any major league stadium. They are supposed to allow fans to skip all the really long concession lines to be able to spend more time enjoying the game by ordering and paying for food and beverages using the official MLB.com Ballpark app…

I don’t know… Pretty really weird, right? BARGE!

We got to see Xander Bogaerts…

And Dustin Pedoria…

And Madeira Ohio native, Andrew Benintendi…

And Mookie Betts…

According to my Swarm, I’ve been to 257 Reds games…

Billy Hamilton had the play of the game, hands down. Billy got caught leaning the wrong way off of first and turned a bad throw during the ensuing rundown into a run for the Reds as he raced all the way home from first. It left the Red Sox scratching their collective heads as to what just happened…

The Reds lead most of the game but ended up losing to the Sox 5-4, and getting swept in the weekend series. The last time the Reds won was at the game we were at last Sunday against the Pirates

It was another great season of Reds baseball. 😀⚾️❤️

Constructing Cincinnati.

I’ve been crazy busy at work lately, and haven’t had much of a chance to get out and wander around downtown for a bit. But I was walking to get my hair cut this afternoon and I couldn’t help but notice that there’s a lot of construction going on in downtown Cincinnati again.

They’re still trying to demolish the last little bit of The Dennison Hotel. Apparently, there was some sort of shared common wall issue with the building next door. And now this eyesore has taken the place of a historic building…

The only reminder The Dennison Hotel beside the hole in the ground is this sticker on what remains of the red brick facade…

Across the parking lot, it looks like the new apartment building that was being built across the street from our old apartment is finally reaching completion. And it has a fancy name, Encore.

Seeking of facades, it looks like they’re doing some pretty extensive work on the facade of this building on Main Street judging by the scaffolding…

Right next door, Bay Horse Cafe is open for business…

There’s a Wahlburger’s coming to Sixth Street where Pi Pizzeria used to be…

That will bring the downtown burger joint count to five with Americano, Bobby’s Burger Palace, Bru, Burger-fi and now Walburgers. Also on Sixth Street is all this mess…

The old Trattoria Roma is becoming an Irish pub & restaurant, O’Reilly’s…

And there’s also a new pizza place on Sixth Street called Zablong…

There’s this mess on Eighth Street…

And finally, Deskey has a new front window display…

The more things change, the things stay the same. There’s always something new popping up or being constructed in downtown Cincinnati. 😀❤️

V’s Cafe Wednesday Grillout.

I was walking back to work from getting my hair cut, and I stumbled across V’s Cafe Wednesday Grillout on the little plaza at the corner of Walnut and Seventh Streets just outside of the Aronoff Center for the Arts…

It came down to the Rib Eye Sandwich or the Mushroom & Swiss Burger…

I made a good decision. It was a great burger for just $6. I can’t wait to check out the next V’s Grillout Wednesday! 😀🍔❤️

Oktoberfest Zinzinnati 2017.

After the Reds game, we walked through Oktoberfest Zinzinnati 2017

Samuel Adams and Urban Artifact collaborated on a beer for Oktoberfest…

And it was outstanding…

The Klaberheads were getting ready to perform as we were walking through…

We’ve been to every Oktoberfest since we began dating back in 2011. 😀🥨🇩🇪❤️
