Chicago Gyros & Dogs.

We had Chicago Gyros & Dogs delivered to us via UberEats tonight. It’s become our go-to place for ordering delivery that isn’t pizza. Genifer ordered a Greek salad…

And I ordered this incredible little sack of corn dogs…

I love corn dogs. I love corn dogs so much. And we live in a truly wonderful world where people will deliver corn dogs right to your front door whenever you’d like.

Is this heaven? No. It’s Cincinnati. 😀😍❤️

FC Cincinnati versus Nashville SC.

IT’S FC CINCINNATI MATCH DAY TWELVE! We missed the Wednesday night win against the Charlotte Independence. Those Wednesday night matches make for a really long rest of the week. We also missed FC|C’s win against the New York Red Bulls II two Saturdays ago because of my hip revision surgery. But we made it to last Saturday’s international Friendly against RCD Espanyol. And tonight, FC Cincinnati was hosting the other soon-to-be-an-MLS-team, Nashville SC…

Before the match, we stopped at Chicago Gyros & Dogs in Clifton for lunch…

And a $5 bucket of the Champagne of Beers, Miller High Life…

This is the first time we’ve actually eaten at Chicago Gyros & Dogs. Chicago Gyros & Dogs has become our go-to place whenever we order food from UberEats. It’s so good. And they’re the only place I’ve found that will deliver me delicious corn dogs whenever I want. And I love corn dogs. When we were getting ready to head over to the Nippert Stadium, the sky looked like this…

Come to find out, the match was on a lightning delay. And kick-off was pushed back until 8:30pm so we went to Mac’s to have a beer and watch some of the Red’s baseball game. Eventually, we headed over to Nippert Stadium when game time finally rolled around…

We were walking into Nippert right as the match was kicking off…

And it was a dream start for FC Cincinnati! Danni Konig scored the fastest goal in FC|C history by finding the back of the net in the FIRST MINUTE of the match!

And a quick video snippet of the atmosphere at Nippert Stadium and me trying in vain to get JimmyMcLaughlin to wave at us as he warmed up…

At halftime, FC|C still had a 1-0 lead over Nashville…

SPRINKLES!

Midweek FC Cincinnati signed their first MLS Designated Player, Fanendo Adi. Adi hails from Lagos, Nigeria, and scored 54 goals in 126 games in four seasons with the Portland Timbers. From the FC Cincinnati website

Adi originally came to Portland in May 2014 as a Designated Player on loan from FC Copenhagen, scoring nine goals and adding four assists in 24 games in his debut MLS season. Portland later completed the transfer and he then scored back-to-back 16-goal seasons in 2015 and 2016. In 2017, he registered his third-straight season with double-digit goals with 10, despite being sidelined the final two months of the year with injury.

With Copenhagen, Adi drew UEFA Champions League experience with group-stage appearances against Juventus, Real Madrid and Galatasaray.

And tonight Fanendo Adi made his FC|C debut coming on as a sub in the 72nd minute for the goal-scorer, Danni Konig…

I just missed the attendance again. It was announced that there was a crowd of 27,426  were at tonight’s match…

And the match would end in a 1-1 draw

FC Cincinnati’s next home match is next Sunday, August 11th at 6pm against Penn FC. So we’ll probably end up skipping that one, and just watching the match on TV. If it was an early game on Sunday like 2pm or even 4pm, we’d probably go. But we need to get ready for our week and that’s just too late for us to be running around on a Sunday evening.

Looking at the calendar, I think we’re also going to miss the match on Saturday, August 18th against Charleston Battery because we’ll be in Michigan. We’ll be sure to take one of our Chromecast and a couple of tablets with us to Michigan so we can stream that match through ESPN+ as well.

But thankfully, there’s a home game almost every Saturday for the entire summer. So it looks like the next match we’ll be able to make it to will be on Saturday, September 1st against Pittsburgh Riverhounds. We’ll see you at Nippert! 😀⚽️❤️

Cheeseburger. Cheeseburger.

We had some amazing burgers from Chicago Gyros & Dogs in Clifton delivered to us for lunch via UberEats. I had this delicious and huuuuge double cheeseburger and the fries were really good too…

What a great burger! 😀🍔🍟❤️

The final OrderUp.

We tapped OrderUp tonight to get some more delicious Chicago Gyros and Dogs. Only to find out that tonight was OrderUp’s very last night. Starting tomorrow, OrderUp is joining forces with GrubHub

That’s kind of a bummer. We really liked OrderUp. But still, we enjoyed our last meal from OrderUp. Genifer had a huge Greek salad…

And I had “The Dougie.” Grilled cheeses loaded with gyro meat…

It sure was delicious. We’re really going to miss OrderUp. It was super convenient and always worked really well for us ever since we’ve moved to Northside. I guess now we’ll have to try GrubHub and see how it compares. 😀🥗🥪❤️

OrderUp: Chicago Gyros and Dogs.

I love me some gyros. But I don’t eat nearly enough of them, mainly because there aren’t that many gyro places around. When I ride my 17 metro bus from work home every night, it goes right by a place in Clifton called Chicago Gyros and Dogs. So it was kind of surprising that we’ve never checked them out. Tonight, we tapped OrderUp to bring us some much-needed gyros…

Genifer ordered the chicken gyro stuffed full of grilled chicken, tomatoes, lettuce, onions and taz sauce…

I ordered just the classic gyro loaded with tons of delicious gyro meat, tomatoes, onions and taz sauce…

And I had to try something Chicago Gyros and Dogs called “The Dougie.” It’s gyro meat on a grilled cheeses…

Their gyros aren’t the most beautiful things in the world. And it’s pretty hard to get a really nice, appetizing photo of a gyro. But there was so much meat on those gyros that they were also pretty difficult to pick up and eat. But they sure were delicious. Next time we have a craving for gyros, we know where to turn. 😀🥙❤️
