NYPD Pizza party!

We had another NYPD Pizza party this evening to celebrate getting through our first week of a whole strange new world. We were happy that NYPD was still open…

We got another delicious NYPD Station House pizza…

And we got BBQ/mild buffalo boneless wings…

We love NYPD Pizza parties. Their pizza is delicious. πŸ˜€πŸ•β€οΈ

Almost National Pizza Day.

This afternoon we went over to Taft’s Brewpourium for another lunch with our gift cards we got for Christmas…

We got their BBQ chicken wings too…

And we had one of Taft’s terrific Hazelnut Latte Coffee Milk Stouts…

Only come to find out later that tomorrow is National Pizza Day. I guess we just got too excited and celebrated the delicious holiday early. πŸ˜€πŸ•πŸ”β€οΈ

NYPD Pizza party!

We had another NYPD Pizza party tonight. We went through a stretch where we were on a cheese pizza kick. Every time we would order a cheese pizza and wings. Now, we’ve been on a streak with NYPD’s Station House pizza

The Station House is so good! And of course, we still got boneless wings…

NYPD Pizza parties are fun and delicious! πŸ˜€πŸ•πŸ”β€οΈ

Another rainy Saturday.

This morning we woke up early again to head over to Trader Joe’s before it got too crazy busy on Saturday. The later it gets, the busier it gets. We usually try to get to Trader Joe’s as close to 8am when it open as we can. This morning was our best time
so far. We pulled into their parking lot at 8:02am…

I just thought that little berry bunny was pretty cute. We didn’t get any frozen chocolate cover strawberry pieces though. I wonder if they would be good?

After we were done getting groceries at TJ’s, we headed over to get our Saturday morning coffee at Biggby

Biggby is our reward for getting up and getting groceries out of the way. We both got hot chocolates this morning. Biggby had more student artwork on display on their walls. I really liked the hills with the watercolor skies…

The owl and the elephant were really great too…

And if we had a daughter and named her Niala…

She would be Niala Fiala. Maybe Niala could be a middle name.

Later, we went over to Taft’s Brewpourium for another lunch with our gift cards we got for Christmas…

Taft’s had a new Hazelnut Latte Coffee Milk Stout on tap…

And it was really delicious. We watched the Michigan-Illinois game on our little tablet. We shared a small pizza with pepperoni, sausage and banana peppers…

We also shared some of Taft’s chicken wings…

We had six buffalo wings and six Cherrywood BBQ wings…

I think I really like the Cherrywood BBQ the best. But they’re both really good. And even though, Michigan lost. Again. It was a great lunch. We just love Taft’s pizza and wings.

Later, we started watching a series called 11.22.63 on Hulu. It’s pretty good so far. And even though it was another rainy day, it was another pretty good Saturday. πŸ˜€πŸŒ¨οΈβ€οΈ

A rainy Cincinnati Saturday.

It was really warm this morning with temperatures hovering in the mid-60s. But it was supposed to rain all day. And it pretty much did.

Before it started raining this morning we got up and ran over to Biggby for weekend morning coffee

We saw on Biggby’s Instagram that they had a BOGO offer just for today…

My new favorite go-to drink is Biggy’s Cocoa Caramella hot chocolate with a little bit of butterscotch added to it. It’s a great drink. And I really prefer hot chocolate to coffee. The caffeine makes me feel too jittery.

We watched some of the soccer this morning. My favorite club, Arsenal drew 1-1 with Crystal Palace and my other favorite club, Leicester City lost to Southampton 2-1. The last time Leicester and Southampton played, Leicester thumped the Saints 9-0.

We hung out upstairs and I worked on some work stuff until the dogs let us know they wanted to go on another dog walk…

Later when it was time for the other football, we took the Taft’s gift cards we received for Christmas around the corner to the Brewpourium for some pizza and wings. Taft’s had a peanut butter version of their Maverick chocolate porter on tap…

And it was really terrific. We usually get Taft’s Cherrywood BBQ wings but tonight we tried their buffalo wings. And they really good too. Pretty spicy but really good. So good, in fact, we had already eaten half of the wings before I remembered to take a photo…

And we shared a small pizza with pepperoni, sausage and banana peppers…

Taft’s pizzas are so good! When we were leaving, the Brewopurium was getting crazy…

Apparently, there was going to be a comedy show in the back of the Brewpourium. When we got home, we walked the dogs around the block again in the rain…

We watched a pretty dumb movie on Prime Video and then fell asleep while we watched the rest of the other football playoff game. It was a pretty good Saturday. It would have better if I didn’t have to work on a bunch of work stuff. πŸ˜€β˜•οΈπŸΎπŸ•πŸ”πŸŒ§οΈβ€οΈ

Are you ready for some football?

This afternoon, we drove over to Rookwood Commons to go to BJ’s Brewhouse for their awesome Sunday Happy Hour during the final Sunday of the NFL regular season…

We started with a couple of beers. Genifer likes their PM Porter and I usually go for their Tatonka Stout. We also had some mozzarella sticks…

We planned to order more food for lunch but the normally reliable bar service at BJs was just horrendous today. Apparently, the bartender was really hungover and didn’t feel like waiting on anybody. We couldn’t even manage to flag him down to refill our water. So we broke camp and went to Taft’s Brewpourium for pizza and wings…

The pizza and wings were awesome. And our Cowboys won big but the Eagles won too. So the Cowboys will be watching the playoffs with the rest of us. πŸ˜€πŸˆπŸΊπŸ§€πŸ•πŸ”β€οΈ

Christmas in Pleasant Ridge.

This afternoon we drove over to Pleasant Ridge to go to Overlook Lodge and check out their annual Christmas extravaganza called Miracle at the Overlook Lodge

We’ve heard that Overlook goes a bit overboard with their holiday decorations…

The drinks on their seasonal menu sounded fantastic…

I started with their Christmas Carol Barrel and Genifer their Snowball Old-Fashioned…

Cleve and Alyssa joined us for a drink. For our second beverage, Genifer had their Jingle Balls Nog and I tried the Yippie Ki Yay Mister Falcon…

All the drinks we were really tasty. Genifer loved their nog, and my favorite was the barrel. After finishing our drinks, we walked down the street to Revolution Rotisserie to grab a bite to eat…

I had their chicken pot pie special and Genifer had boneless wings…

Delicious stuff all around. It was another really fun evening over in Pleasant Ridge.

Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween from Northside! Oscar could sense something amiss in the air…

It was time to break out Oscar’s dinosaur costume. We were happy that he got to wear his adorable dinosaur costume for a little bit…

These pictures really don’t show it but Oscar gets so mad when he has to wear his Halloween costume. We got a few photos and then it came right off. He wears his dinosaur costume just long enough to get a photo every year…

We tinkered briefly with the idea of handing out candy tonight. But it was sooo cold and sooo rainy that we decided to go to Taft’s Brewpourium to eat delicious pizza and BBQ chicken wings…

Going to Taft’s Brewpourium on Halloween is kind of becoming a yearly tradition. We did the same exact thing last year to have a Taft’s Gourd to Death

Taft’s pizza is so delicious. Eating pizza was a much better idea than sitting out in the cold and rain, handing out candy to strangely dressed children. We sat there at Taft’s just stuffing our faces full of pizza and BBQ wings while we watched our birds-eye view of our street from our third-floor WyzeCam

Not surprisingly, there weren’t a ton of people out and about. Thanks for all the great memories, Timehop!Β πŸ˜€πŸ¦•πŸ¬πŸŽƒβ€οΈ

Sometimes you just want pizza and wings.

After Oktober Zinzinnati, we stopped at Taft’s Brewpourium for pizza and wings…

Sometimes, you just want some pizza and wings. πŸ˜€πŸ•πŸ“β€οΈ

FC Cincinnati versus NYCFC.

Today, our FC Cincinnati played host to New York City Football Club. Before the match, we stopped at Mac’s Pizza Pub for pizza and boneless chicken wings…

And then we headed over to Nippert Stadium for the match…

Back in the day, they had some really big-name, international superstar players like David Villa and Andrea Pirlo and I suppose to a lesser degree, Frank Lampard…

But to be honest with you, I couldn’t name one player from this current NYCFC squad…

FC Cincinnati jumped out to a 1-0 lead…

It should have been a 2-0 lead, but FC Cincinnati had a penalty saved. And then NYCFC rattled off 4 unanswered goals…

And NYCFC would go on to defeat FC|C 4-1.Β 

Thankfully, there are just five more home games in this very long inaugural MLS season of FC Cincinnati soccer. πŸ˜€βš½οΈβ€οΈ
