It’s a sign.

You know it’s almost summer in downtown Cincinnati when you start thinking about rooftop cocktail terraces

Northside could use a rooftop bar or two.ย ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿทโค๏ธ

Happy trails, Orient.

I was walking back to the office up Main Street and noticed that Orient had closed…

Orient was an odd little place. You couldn’t pay with a credit card. They only took cash. I don’t really carry cash so I get didn’t eat there as often as I would have liked. My friend, Chuck used to live right above Orient and was convinced it was a front for something. Say what you will about the place, they had some great food. And I’m sad to see them go. They will be missed.ย ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿšโค๏ธ

 

Taco Bell Cantina.

When we were downtown last weekend for the Bunbury Music Festival, we walked over to the AT580 Building at the corner of Main and Sixth Streets to find the brand new Wahlburgers. And right next to the new Walhburgers, we also found a brand new Taco Bell Cantina.ย You know what I did today for lunch? I walked right back over to the AT580 Building to check out the new Taco Bell Cantina…

It’s one of the nicest Taco Bell’s I’ve ever been to, that’s for sure. And they weren’t stingy the sauce packets either. Just look at all that Fire Sauce…

I ordered my favorite, three Chalupa Supremes and a large Gatorade Fruit Punch. It’s pretty awesome to have Taco Bell as a quick and inexpensive lunch option in downtown Cincinnati. I’ll definitely be Living Mas at Main and Sixth in the near future.ย ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒฎ๐Ÿ‘โค๏ธ

Bunbury Sunday.

Bunbury Sunday!ย There were a bunch of great bands again today but no one that I really loved. I didn’t take a ton of photos today. We just enjoyed the performances…

Tonight’s headliner was Jack White who closed Bunbury 2018…

Pretty awesome. It was another great day of music at Bunbury! We can’t wait for next year.ย ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŽธ๐ŸŽถโค๏ธ

It’s a sign.

When we were walking back to our hotel, Genifer noticed this sign for a coffee shop across Sixth Street. And even with all the thousands of times that we walked down Sixth Street when we lived downtown, we couldn’t remember if this was an old sign or a new sign for a coffee shop that’s coming soon…

It got us talking about all the times we walked down Sixth Street to Fountain Square and all the fun we had downtown. And how much it’s changed and how much it’s still the same. And how much we like our Sidewinder Coffee in Northside.ย ๐Ÿ˜€โ˜•๏ธโค๏ธ

Lunch at Wahlburgers.

Recently a new Wahlburgers opened in downtown Cincinnati at the corner of Main and Sixth Streets in the location of the old Pi Pizzeria. I’ve been really wanting to check out Wahlburgers since I heard it opened. But I’ve been holding off because we knew we were going to be staying downtown this weekend for Bunbury. We walked from our hotel up to finally check out Wahlburgers…

They had so many good sounding burgers on their menu. Genifer had The Our Burger and I had The Original Melt. Their burgers are so good and their fries are amazing. After we finished our fantastic lunch. We moved to the bar and tried one of their signature cocktails Wahlcoctions. Genifer had the Strawberry Jalapeno Margarita and I had the Spiked Cherry Coke…

Wahlburgers was awesome. I can see myself picking up many, many future lunches from Wahlburgers. They’re great.

Also, when did a Taco Bell Catina open up right next door to Wahlburgers?

The corner of Main and Sixth just became my new favorite lunch spot!ย ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ”๐Ÿฅ‚โค๏ธ

Seen and noted.

It’s funny that trying to cover up graffiti with paints that really aren’t anywhere close to matching sort of becomes it’s own special kind of Marc Rothko styled minimalist color block graffiti…

I’m going to have to keep an eye out for more examples of this. It’s kind of beautiful in its own unique way.ย ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŽจ๐Ÿ–Œ๏ธโค๏ธ

Upstairs at Arnold’s.

I think of all the times I’ve been in Arnold’s, Cincinnati’s oldest bar. And I can’t ever recall going upstairs. Today was our co-op’s last day at work, and we had her thank you lunch at Arnold’s. We have every work lunch at Arnold’s. It’s a little annoying. Due to a huge reservation that filled their entire patio, we were seated upstairs. I was kind of beside myself that I can’t recall ever being upstairs in Arnold’s. In trueย Arnold’s style,
it was very eclectic, to say the least…

This is the room we were seated in with the walls completely covered in 20 plus years of Cincinnati Bockfest posters…

Pretty neat. Say what you will about Arnold’s, but it’s definitely a piece of Cincinnati living history.ย ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿบโค๏ธ
