Let’s GO X!

We had tickets for this afternoon’s Xavier Men’s basketball game against the Oakland Golden Grizzlies. We bought our tickets a while back after discovering how silly cheap you could get tickets for events on  StubHub. Unfortunately, you can’t purchase good weather. It was pouring down rain this morning on our way to the game…

I made it through yet another metal detector without my hips set off the alarms…

It’s been a while since we’ve been to a Xavier game

I don’t remember the player introductions being so cool

We figured out there’s a place to stand up behind the seats. We like standing…

Xavier was leading at halftime…

It was kind of an ugly game. But Xavier won 73-63! That’s three in a row for X!

On the way out of Cintas Center, they gave everyone 20% off coupons at the Xavier team shop. We looked in the shop inside Cintas Center but they didn’t have any sizes…

So we walked down to the All For One Shop. And they had everything Xavier…

We both got Xavier sweatshirts to wear to our next Xavier game. 😀✖️🏀❤️

On our way home, we stopped at Taft’s Brewpourium for a beer, some loaded tots and a pepperoni&sausage apizza…

It was a really fun Saturday! 😀🍕❤️

Thursday evening at Listermann.

After work this evening, we stopped at Listermann Brewing Company’s taproom across the street from Xavier’s campus…

We’ve been to Listermann before. We pre-gamed there before one of the very first FC|C preseason matches against Xavier, and we loved going to their Volksfest. Earlier in the week, we saw on their Instagram that they had a Mexican Chocolate Chickow on tap that sounded very intriguing. And then we saw that they also had a Mexican Chocolate Stout on tap as well called Pastel Con Amigos. But when we got to the taproom, they were both already gone. But there were a lot of other interesting sounding beers on tap…

We decided to start with a flight…

Our first flight…

Father Kyle’s Cinnamon Stout was really good. As was Satisfied? Their Cookie Wizard had glitter in it. You can sort of see it here…

There it is…

And here’s our second flight…

In my opinion, Nutcase is one of Listermann’s best beers. Sooo peanut buttery! Seen and noted that Thursday night is also Wing Night in the taproom…

We didn’t partake but we ordered some other stuff from Renegade Grille

We ordered some deep fried mac ‘n cheese balls, loaded cheese fries and a fried bologna sammich to share…

The fried bologna sammich and loaded fries were out of this world…

It was a fun Thursday evening. We can’t wait to come back for another fried bologna sammich and some more incredible beers. 😀🍺❤️

Congratulations on your graduation.

Genifer’s sister, Alyssa graduated from Christ College of Nursing & Health Sciences and this evening was the ceremony at Cintas Center on the campus of Xavier Univesity…

It looked like a lot of people spent a lot of time decorating their mortar boards…,

I think the bang of the confetti cannons startled everyone at Cintas Center…

Afterwards, we all went out to dinner to celebrate…

Congratulations, Alyssa! We’re very proud of you! 🙂
