Part of a building collapsed.

Early this afternoon on Fourth Street the sixth floor of a building under construction suffered a partial collapse

The part that collapsed is right at the base of the tower crane…

Unfortunately, reports said that multiple people were injured in the collapse. Cincinnati Police said one person has died, and Cincinnati Fire & EMS were still searching for at least two more victims. It’s really sad and pretty scary stuff.

The structural integrity of the rest of the building was being assessed. The bottom of the building was slated to be a new parking garage with an apartment community situated atop of the garage. I don’t know if I would feel comfortable living in a building where a section of one of the floors collapsed. But that’s just me. 😬🚧❀️

On a more upbeat Constructing Cincinnati note, a new Asian fusion restaurant has opened at the corner of Seventh and Walnut Streets called e+o

And progress continues on the building across the street from where I used to work

Good evening from downtown Cincinnati. I apologize for really wearing out this view. I mean, not really because the sunsets are so pretty right now when I’m getting ready to leave from work. I’m sure there will be quite a few more photos taken gazing out at this view. I think it’s just gorgeous at dusk. Taken with Instagram. πŸ˜€πŸŒ†β€οΈ

Seen and noted.

I was walking down Benham Alley on my way to catch the bus this evening, and I found this medal on the ground…

I hung it up on the wall so if someone had lost it hopefully they could find it. πŸ˜€πŸ…β€οΈ

Shrimp ‘n Jazz Festival.

When we were at Washington Platform last week, we noticed that they have a Shrimp ‘n Jazz Festival. I love shrimps. So we stopped tonight to check it out.
But guess what?

Shrimp ‘n Jazz Festival started on Friday. Today is Thursday. And that is what they call…
a bummer.

But since we were already at Washington Platform, we decided to eat anyway. Genifer ordered a side salad and twice-baked potato…

I ordered their Shrimp Casino, also known as bacon-wrapped BBQ shrimp…

Genifer out-ordered me tonight. Her potato was awesome. My casino had so much BBQ sauce on it. All you tasted was BBQ. It was just way too much BBQ. And I think that’s the first time I’ve ever made that statement. We got to look at the Shrimp Festival menu and it was pretty pricey. I was thinking we’re going to be good on Washington Platform for a little bit. But then the entire evening was salvaged because Washington Platform has some really amazing bread pudding…

And as much as I love shrimps. I love bread pudding even more. πŸ˜€πŸ€β€οΈ

Hello from Grey Midwest.

This morning at Grey Midwest we had our monthly company meeting…

You can tell when it’s a company meeting morning because the chairs were all set up around the flat screens and the robotic dinosaur was guarding the all the wires that run to the flatscreens…

And I admire this guy on someone’s desk every time I get up to refill my water…

Later in the morning, I had a meeting down on the second floor. I got to my meeting early and just around the corner from the conference room was this giant bear just snoozing away in an empty cubicle…

He looked super uncomfortable so I repositioned him a bit…

It was pretty random. Also pretty random is the awesome mural on the second floor…

It was another interesting and fun day at Grey Midwest. It’s never boring over here.

I’d just like to add I’ve learned more stuff in the last eight months since I joined Grey than I learned in the six years I was at my last job. And I’m really kicking myself for staying there that long. Oh well. Live and learn. It’s just nice to be back in the big time.

Good morning from downtown Cincinnati.

Hello. Good morning from downtown Cincinnati. It’s the start of another week. πŸ˜€πŸŒ‡β€οΈ

20th Annual Crab Carnival.

On our way home this evening, we stopped at Washington Platform at the corner of Court and Elm Streets in downtown Cincinnati…

As it turns out, Washington Platform was having their 20th annual Crab Carnival…

Genifer ordered the Findlay Market salad. And it was a delicious looking salad…

She doesn’t really like seafood all that much. I ordered the crab cake muffuletta…

The sammich was pretty good. But it was a lot of bread. I ended up just eating the crab cake and leaving the bread. And then it was pretty awesome.

And they had live jazz in the dining room…

We’ll have to come back to check out Washington Platform’s other events…

And we’ll definitely have to come back for half-price burger night Wednesdays…

Washington Platform was pretty good. We’ll definitely be back soon. πŸ˜€πŸ₯—πŸ¦€β€οΈ

A little bit earlier every year.

Just like the ridiculous ice skating rink on Fountain Square, that holiday tree seems to arrive a little bit earlier every year…

It makes me a little ill that they cut down a big beautiful tree every year. I really wish they would find a more sustainable alternative to cutting down a tree. Taken with Instagram. πŸ˜•πŸŽ„β€οΈ
