Making the rounds in OtR.

This afternoon, we rode the Metro 17 bus down into Over-the-Rhine. We found a gift card that still had some money on it. So we headed to Taft’s Ale House for lunch. We’ve been to Taft’s Ale House since our friend Chris’s birthday. Anymore it seems we just always go to Taft’s Brewpourium which is just around the corner from our house over on Spring Grove. We didn’t realize just how long it had been. It’s been so long they’ve built a whole new condo community at Race and Fourteenth Streets…

Hello, beautiful. Taft’s Ale House is so pretty…

When we were crossing the street, we saw another one of those #CincyStreetBots

I’ve really been digging Taft’s Cold Boy

Genifer ordered Taft’s Chicken Avocado Salad

And Saratoga chips with ranch…

I ordered two of Taft’s tri-tip sliders…

With tots and beer cheese…

And Taft’s had bread pudding. I love bread pudding. So I had to order it…

Taft’s is soooo good. Everything was delicious. Especially the bread pudding.

From Taft’s, we walked down to Washington Park to check out the last half hour or so of September’s edition of The City Flea

There were a couple of really dope hats at this Flea…

From Washinton Park, we started walking in the direction of Findlay Market. We walked by a few murals that I hadn’t seen before…

TAG! You’re it…

Findlay Market…

And then we walked over to Sam Adams Cincy Taproom

They were hosting their Oktoberfest…

We hung out for a minute but it was all sort of winding down. So we headed back over to Race Street to check out the new Goose+Elder

 

I love the restaurant bathroom trend of using wild floral print wallpapers…

Hi. And the other bathroom…

We had a White Russian…

And we ordered just a couple of little small plates to share like their watermelon…

And their mac&cheese…

Terrific stuff. I can’t wait to come back to eat a full meal at Goose+Elder…

Then we hopped in an Uber and headed home. It was a great afternoon in OtR. 😀🏙️❤️

#CincyStreetBots 🤖

When I was walking around downtown Cincinnati today, I stumbled across another one of those little (what I’m calling) #CincyStreetBots

But it was so long ago and I’m sooo far behind on our blog that I can’t remember where exactly in downtown Cincinnati that I saw this one. And that’s a bummer. 🙁🤖❤️

I found another one.

I was on my way back to the office after getting my haircut. And I saw another of these little guys in the crosswalk at Seventh and Walnut Streets…

This one was a little worse for wear than the first one I saw at the intersection of Main and Seventh Streets. I’m still really curious what their stories are? And if there is still some sort of backstory like the Toynbee Tiles around downtown. Now that I’ve seen and second one, I’m going to have to keep an eye out to try to see if I can find any more of them around downtown Cincinnati. 😀🏙️🤖❤️

Seen and noted.

I was running a couple of errands around downtown this morning. And on my way back to the office, I saw this little guy in the crosswalk at Sixth and Walnut Streets…

I wonder what his story is? It reminds me a lot of the Toynbee Tiles around downtown. I’ll have to keep an eye out to try to see if there are any more of them around downtown Cincinnati. 😀🏙️🤖❤️
