It was a great Saturday.

This morning started with some coffees from Biggby Coffee

YUM! Biggby has terrific hot chocolate. I love mine with some butterscotch added to it.

After we had our drinks in hand, we stopped at JackRabbit in Obryanville

At last year’s Higher Gravity Spring Grove Beer Gallop, Genifer won a $125Β  gift certificate towards a brand new running shoes from JackRabbit. And with this year’s Spring Grove Beer Gallop right around the corner, Genifer thought she’d better get some new running shoes…

Genifer got these Brooks running shoes…

These terrific running shoes only cost her $25. And that’s pretty awesome.

Later, we ran out to get lunch at Freddy’s Steakburgers

Ohmigosh. I love Freddy’s Steakburgers….

I think I’ve finally zeroed in on my go-to Freddy’s order. I think it’s going to be the original double. This is the original double with bacon…

But next time and into the future, my order will be just the original double with fries…

I used to get the triple steakburger. Sometimes I could do it. But sometimes, it was a real struggle and it was too much. Freddy’s also has a patty melt that is really good. But it’s not like a traditional patty melt. But it’s still really good.

On our way home for Freddy’s, we stopped in College Hill at Brink Brewing. Brink is one of my favorite Cincinnati breweries…

They have such great beers. Our big beer was a King Cake beer. It was awesome. Brink always has something really interesting on tap.

And that was pretty much our Saturday. We were pretty happy that we actually got out and did something on a Saturday…

And it was a great Saturday.

Happy President’s Day.

Happy President’s Day! We both had the day off work. We used our BOGO coupon again this morning to get more delicious Biggby Coffee

We drove up to Monroe to check out Cincinnati Premium Outlets

They had FC Cincinnati gear at the Adidas store but it wasn’t discounted at all…

We didn’t find much at the Outlets. I got a scarf and a pair of boxers. We started to get hungry so we started to drive back towards Cincinnati and stopped to eat in Liberty Township at FlipSide in Liberty Center

We started with mini corn dogs on a stick…

I love corn dogs! Genifer ordered a hamburger without the bun. I ordered the Say Cheese cheeseburger and put too much mayonnaise on it…

It was a great lunch, the burger was really good and the fries were terrific. And they had this Sir Kensington ketchup that was just out of this world…

After we were done eating lunch, we walked through the shops in Liberty Center…

Genifer got a few things for our upcoming trip. I got a new pair of camo shorts. I’d worn my old camo short out over the last two summers. I’m really happy to have a new pair.

Later, we watched The Forest on Netflix. It was just turrible.

But we had a pretty fun President’s Day. πŸ˜€πŸ›οΈπŸ”β€οΈ

Camp Washington Chili.

After Cincinnati Museum Center, we continued my birthday theme of celebrating with things that are Cincinnati wonderful. And we stopped for lunch at another place that’s older than I am, Camp Washington Chili

I’d had Camp Washington Chili at the Coney Eating Contests on Fountain Square but we’d never been to their restaurant for some reason. We thought we’d change that today for my birthday lunch…

Genifer ordered two chili cheese sammiches…

I ordered a patty melt and a cheese coney and we shared some french fries…

Everything was delicious! And there was so much stuff on their menu that sounded great. I can’t wait to come back to Camp Washington Chili because next time I have to try their 513 Way…

It’s three slabs of goetta topped with chili, beans, onions, and cheese. It doesn’t get much more Cincinnati than that. Before we left, we got a couple of pieces of cake for us to eat later…

Genifer got carrot cake because she loves carrot cake…

And I got chocolate cake for my birthday cake…

What a delicious birthday lunch. Thanks, Camp Washington Chili! πŸ˜€πŸ§€πŸŒ­πŸŽ‚β€οΈ

ps. I had a really great birthday. Thanks for all the birthday wishes!

Wiedenmann’s fine foods.

We stopped back at Wiedenmann’s fine beers in St. Bernard for lunch today…

We had another one of their delicious German Chocolate Cake Imperial Stouts…

Genifer ordered their Caesar Wrap…

And I had their Wiedie Burger…

Both the wrap and the burger were both really good. The burger was huge for a 1/3lb. We really like Wiedenmann’s beers and now we really their food too. πŸ˜€πŸΊπŸŒ―πŸ”πŸŸβ€οΈ

BrewDog Cincinnati.

After getting in some morning holiday shopping, this afternoon we headed downtown to Over-the-Rhine’s next-door neighbor, Pendleton to check out the brand new BrewDog Cincinnati taproom

In April 2007, in a godforsaken industrial estate in northeast Scotland, BrewDog came howling into the world. BrewDog has two breweries. The original is in Aberdeen, Scotland and the other is in Columbus, Ohio. The Cincinnati taproom just opened…

Two hours south of our American HQ we opened an 8,500 sq ft beer mecca. With 24 taps of craft beer glory, a mezzanine chock full of games, and a beer school space for everything beer geekery, BrewDog Cincinnati is THE place to experience craft beer in The Queen City.

We’ve tried a few of the BrewDog beers before here and there. BrewDog was a guest at the HIgher Gravity Meet the Brewer on two different occasions

The inside is huuuuge…

We started with a Choco-Libre and a Jet Black Heart

The Choco Libre is a Mexican-spiced hot chocolate infused imperial stout. And Jet Black Heart is a 4.7% milk stout, loaded with oatmeal. Both beers were really outstanding!

We shared their $6 Tuesday burger special…

Terrific burger. I don’t know how someone could take down one of these monsters without any help. And the fries were great too. After finishing, we also tried one of their beer slushies (it was kinda weird), and an outstanding Renegade chocolate and peanut butter buckeye white stout…

And Genifer bought me one share of stock in BrewDog

Now we get 5% off our tab and a whole bunch of other cool benefits. Before we left, I went up to take a peek at BrewDog’s upstairs game area…

BrewDog Beer School…

It’s such an awesome space…

I have a feeling we’ll be coming back to BrewDog a lot. After all, we own part of the bar! πŸ˜€πŸΊπŸΆπŸ”πŸŸβ€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

We love Freddy’s Steakburgers.

We ran out to Finneytown to get some Freddy’s Steakburgers for lunch…

Their steakburgers are so good. They’ve become one of our favorites. We really love them. I also love Genifer for being so patient with me as I take a photo of everything…

πŸ˜€πŸ”πŸŸβ€οΈ

It’s what you crave?

For whatever reason, two crave cases of White Castle cheeseburger sliders showed up at the office today around lunchtime…

I hadn’t had White Castle in years and years. Today, I had two little sliders…

They were pretty much exactly how I remember them. And now I can go years and years without having them again. πŸ€’πŸ”β€οΈ

Thursdays are for Whip Classics.

It must be Thursday. We stopped at Queen City Radio for a Whip Classic burger, chili dog and some fries…

I still think they have one of the best burgers, if not THE best burger in all of Cincinnati. Best fries too. πŸ˜€πŸ”πŸŒ­πŸŸβ€οΈ

 

More Fiery Hen.

After work tonight, we stopped back at Fiery Hen on Court Street…

Genifer ordered their burger of the day…

And of course, I had Fiery Hen’s chicken tenders. Again.

This time we got to try Fiery Hen’s banana pudding…

Genifer said her burger was just okay. My chicken tenders were awesome. Again. And the banana pudding was terrific. Banana pudding is sooo good. πŸ˜€πŸ”πŸŸπŸ”πŸŒβ€οΈ
