Constructing Cincinnati.

I rode the Metro 17 bus into work this morning. It’s been a minute since I rode the bus to work. I couldn’t help but notice that they’re tearing down the old Deaconess Hospital across Clifton Avenue from UC’s campus to make way for new apartments…

And downtown on the corner of Walnut and Court Streets, the new apartment tower keeps extending upwards. This building’s parking garage is already open…

Happy Fat Tuesday.

There was King Cake at work today for Fat Tuesday…

King Cake is pretty darn tasty. πŸ˜€πŸ‘Άβ€οΈ

It’s Skyline time!

It was Skyline time again for lunch today…

And I had a gift card so my cheese coneys were free! I love Skyline! πŸ˜€πŸ§€πŸŒ­β€οΈ

Constructing Cincinnati.

The work on the foundation continuesΒ across the street

πŸ˜€πŸš§β€οΈ

It’s a sign.

The Servatii bakery on Fountain Square closed…

Dang. I’m going to really miss their smiley face cookies.Β Also, I noticed that the CVS at the corner of Race and Sixth Street has closed as well…

And one more sign. After work, we stopped at Northside Distilling again for a drink…

It looks like they’ve begun building the foundation across the street

Constructing Cincinnati.

They’re back to digging holes across the street from work…

I don’t work in construction but it’s pretty weird to be that they filled in a hole with dirt only then to remove the dirt again. It’s just odd. πŸ˜€πŸš§β€οΈ

Deskey chili cookoff.

At work today, there was a Deskey chili cookoff

There were even celebrity guest judges from Arnold’s because everything has to be a dang competition…

And Becky was the winner with her #4 chili…

And then there were cupcakes for January birthdays…

And we also revealed our Deskey Secret Valentines. It made for a pretty fun afternoon. πŸ˜€πŸ–οΈβ€οΈ

Constructing Cincinnati.

I wonder if they’re finished across the street. I wouldn’t be at all surprised if they just paved over the space and called it a new surface parking lot…

I don’t think that’s the plan. But it looks like it could happen.πŸ˜€πŸš§β€οΈ

Happy Valentine’s Day!

This evening we went out to celebrate Valentine’s Day! We talked about grandiose plans and expensive dinners. But instead, we just stopped at new favorite placeΒ Northside Distilling to try one of their special Valentine’s Day cocktails

Genifer ordered The Bless Your Heart…

And I ordered The Dudette. Don’t judge me. It was delicious…

Then we headed back to Northside and stopped at Chameleon for a couple of cheese pizza slices and BBQ chicken wings. We’re not fancy…

Chameleon’s pizza and wings are both out of this world! Sometimes the best Valentine’s Day plans are the simplest. πŸ˜€πŸ’πŸ₯ƒπŸ•β€οΈ
