Thank you, CityBeat!

This afternoon I ran out to get my hair cut. On my way back to the office, I stopped by the offices of CityBeat at Race and Ninth Streets…

They had two gift cards for me to pick up. First, a  $25 gift certificate to The Cricket Lounge in The Cincinnatian Hotel downtown for a photo I took during Greater Cincinnati Restaurant Week, and another $25 gift card to Sammy’s Craft Burgers
& Beers
 in Blue Ash for a photo I took during Cincinnati Burger Week


A huge thank you to CityBeat for the gift cards! They are greatly appreciated. It’s really pretty cool to have events like GRC Week and Cincy Burger Week, and be able to take advantage of the great deals they bring. Well… we just love it. But it’s a whole other thing to get rewarded for something we would have done anyway. Take photos. For that, we are very grateful. We can’t wait to put these gift cards to good use! And of course, we’ll post the photos. Thanks again, CityBeat! 🙂

#CincyBurgerWeek: Parkers Blue Ash Tavern.

Our second stop for Cincinnati Burger Week was at Parkers Blue Ash Tavern

Since it was happy hour, we ordered some crisp calamari and banana peppers, cocktail sauce and hickory smoked chicken wings with Parkers barbecue sauce, ranch dressing to start since appetizers were on the cheap…

The calamari was really good and the smoked wings were outstanding…

Parkers burger was incredible 60/40 mix of ground beef and bacon with cheddar cheese and bacon aioli. It was a bacon lovers dream, In fact, it was kind of like death by bacon. And I’m good with that. Genifer said, “It was definitely bacony for sure.”

And it was such a tasty burger! The other items on their menu sounded pretty delicious as well. Next time we find ourselves e’ll definitely be back to Parkers Blue Ash. 🙂

#CincyBurgerWeek: Bistro Grace.

This evening we walked down Hamilton Avenue to kick off our Cincinnati Burger Week at Northside’s Bistro Grace

Bistro Grace was offering their BW Burger topped with sauteed mushrooms, bacon and white cheddar cheese for just $5!

Bistro Grace is really cute inside. And they have a back patio, which we completely forgot to check out while we were there…

I got a beer, the Braxton Hefewiezen…

Genifer got this spicy cocktail with a jalapeno garnish that was actually really spicy…

We both ordered the BW Burger. We also got sides of mac&cheese and roasted red potatoes. Both were really delicious but the potatoes were just unbelievable…

That burger was just out of this world. Cooked perfectly, great flavor, toasted bun, nothing but pure deliciousness…

Bistro Grace is a pretty great little place. I definitely want to come back and try their dinner menu Grace Burger: Fontina cheese, bourbon shallots, beer battered onion rings, garlic aioli and fries. We’re really loving our new neighborhood.

Thanks Cincinnati Burger Week! 🙂
