Northside Wednesday.

After work this evening, we walked through the Northside Farmer’s Market

We stopped at Urban Artifact to try their latest creation called Love Letter Peach Midwest Tart, have another taste of their Anaglyph Banana Midwest Fruit Tart and try their new Spicy Chariot Tart Cherry Gose

Then we stopped a taco at Django Western Taco because it was National Taco Day

And then we headed home…

It was a pretty good Wednesday in Northside! 😀👨‍🌾🍺🌮❤️

#GCRWeek17: Django Western Taco.

IT’S THAT TIME OF YEAR AGAIN! IT’S GREATER CINCINNATI RESTAURANT WEEK!
Our first meal of restaurant week was at the only restaurant participating in Northside, the newly reopened Django Western Taco...

We got to try both of the appetizers…

Ensalada Fresca…

And Grilled Bread…

For the main course, we shared the Blended Steak Burger…

And Charred Eggplant Mushroom Enchiladas…

And we got to try both desserts…

The Chili Chocolate Mousse…

And the Warm Doughnuts…

Everything we had was absolutely delicious! But the salad, burger and mousse were the clear winners for us round by round…

What a wonderful way to start our Greater Cincinnati Restaurant Week! 😀🌮❤️

Django Western Taco.

After a three-month hiatus, Django Western Taco has reopened in their new location just up Hamilton Avenue a couple doors down from Tickle Pickle. They’re so close to us now. We’ve been anxiously waiting for their return, and tonight we were finally rewarded for our patience…

We started with some chips & salsa…

And added some Django-style guacamole…

I ordered a fried chicken taco and Genifer ordered a carne asda taco…

And I had to get a jerk chicken quesadilla…

Such delicious, delicious flavors. Everything was just the way we remember it, if not even better! So good! Speaking of so good, check out Django Western Taco’s menu for the upcoming Greater Cincinnati Restaurant Week…

I know where our first stop is going to be during restaurant week. It sounds delicious.

It’s so good to have Django Western Taco back in the neighborhood and just a hop, skip and a jump from our house. 😀🌮❤️

It’s a sign.

Django Western Taco has a sign up in the window of their new location…

We can’t wait until they’re back up and running! Taken with Instagram. 😀🌮❤️

Sunday Funday.

We watched the Mexico versus Portugal Confederations Cup match this morning. And then we headed down to Second Place to watch Chile take on Cameron. On our way to Second Place, we noticed a sign on the door of our beloved Django Western Taco

Django is moving in next to Tickle Pickle on Hamilton Avenue, and that’s just a hop, skip and a jump from us. Chef Josh broke the news to us a few weeks ago when we were in for Sunday Brunch that they were moving up Hamilton. It’s so cool to have one of our most favorite restaurants move even closer to our house…

Now if we could just get Second Place to move closer as well. Their featured slush today was a cayenne pina colada, which mixed surprisingly well with the bourbon slush…

It tasted like being on vacation. And made for a pretty fun Sunday. 😀🏖️🌮

UPDATE: Django’s old space at the corner of Hamilton and Ble Rock is now empty…

Summer Hours: Django Western Taco.

Deskey lets us work just a half-day every other Friday throughout the summer. They
call them Summer Hours. And they’re pretty flippin’ awesome. Today was my first Summer Hours Friday. We didn’t plan ahead very well, and couldn’t come up with anything fun to do. So when I got home, I worked on organizing the office for a bit while I watched the France versus Sweden World Cup qualifier. Olivier Giroud had an amazing goal for France. As for the office, it still has quite a ways to go but at least I know where more stuff is now. I’ll keep plugging away at working on it…

While I was organizing, I found two $25 gift cards that I apparently misplaced. I also found a gift certificate that still had a balance to Django Western Taco. And there’s no better time than the present to redeem that gift certificate for some delicious Django Western Taco goodness

Genifer ordered a carne asada taco and she loves Django’s salsa…

Django’s special today was corn on the cob with chipotle aioli and shredded cheese…

And of course, I ordered their amazing chicken biscuit…

It’s one of my favorite dishes around. Just look at that delicious mess…

Django also had a watermelon beer from Lost Coast on tap that was out of this world! I’m really happy we couldn’t come up with something to do earlier. Next Summer Hours, I think we’re going to go check out Island Frydays in Corryville. 🙂

Northside Sunday.

We went to Django Western Taco for a late brunch today. We shared the buttermilk biscuit with redeye chorizo gravy and fried eye, Chef Josh’s famous tater tot casserole and a side of bacon topped with ancho chile honey…

And it was delicious. As always. Also, Chef Josh said that Django Western Taco has some really big news coming very soon so we can’t wait for his big announcement!  After we stuffed our faces at Django, we walked over to Urban Artifact for a beer or two…

We had the very last pint of the Palmistry and a couple of Finn’s…

We love Northside so much. 😀 ❤️

Northside Sunday.

We were walking down Hamilton Avenue to brunch and saw the Dogfish Head x Crosley Cruiser Tour parked out in front of Shake It Records

We went to Django Western Taco for brunch…

We shared a breakfast burrito and tater tot casserole…

Afterwards, we went to Second Place to watch Michigan’s second round basketball game against Louisville. It also turns out the Liverpool versus Manchester City match was on…

Second Place put out quite the spread for the match…

It was a pretty amazing atmosphere for both of the games. And… it was super exciting to watch Michigan advance to the Sweet Sixteen. Also, next Saturday the second season of FC Cincinnati USL soccer kicks off in Charleston, South Carolina. And Second Place is having a watch party…

It was another really fun Sunday in Northside. 🙂

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Happy Valentine’s Day

We went back to Django Western Taco for Valentine’s Day. We wanted to indulge in their Valentine’s Day menu. But unfortunately, you had to have reservations in order to get the special Valentine’s Day menu. So we just had a couple of tacos along with some chips and salsa instead. It wasn’t exactly the Valentine’s Day dinner we imagined but it was still a pretty great one. 🙂

We found it!

This afternoon we walked down Hamilton Avenue to Django Western Taco for lunch…

After putting away another chicken biscuit with some more amazing Django chips and salsa, we walked down Blue Rock Road to Northside Yacht Club

We heard that NSYC had the rather difficult-to-find Braxton Brewing Co. x Graeter’s Black Raspberry Chocolate Chip Milk Stout collaboration that has Cincinnati all abuzz right now…

And there it is…

It was really very good. I was hoping it would be a little more on the raspberry side. It was very chocolatey with a little raspberry on the back end. But it was still very good. Before we left, we also tried a NSYC concoction tequila and peanut butter…

And that was surprisingly delicious as well. So smooth and peanut buttery. It went down almost a little too smooth. Like you’d go to stand up after a few of them, and wouldn’t be able to feel your legs. Afterward, we walked over to Urban Artifact see if we could find their Caramel Sliderule

But sadly, they were all out. So we had to settle for just a regular Sliderule. And it’s funny, I actually like it better than the much ballyhooed Braxton x Graeter’s collab…

It was a really fun and tasty afternoon. Do we live in a great neighborhood or what? 🙂
