Frisch’s Big Boy.

We had a couple of Frisch’s Big Boy gift cards just sitting around. So tonight, we stopped at Frisch’s on Central Parkway on the way home from work for dinner…

I had a hard time getting a picture of Genifer’s Buddy Boy…

I tried the Farmhouse Boy, which is just a Big Boy with bacon and a fried egg…

It was pretty good. Next time, I’m just going to get the regular Big Boy though. This little guy was on the cash register because it’s the first day of Autumn…

Thanks for a great dinner Big Boy. 😀🍔🍂❤️

Downtown Big Boy.

The corner of downtown I work in is somewhat of a food void. There just isn’t a lot in the southwest corner of downtown’s Central Business District as far as food options go. Even when we lived downtown, we didn’t even go over to that corner of downtown because there isn’t much there. At all. But today, I ventured out to try to find something for lunch. After wandering for a bit, I ended up at the relatively new Frisch’s Big Boy in Carew Tower… 

I ended up getting a patty melt and fries to go…

And it was pretty good stuff. I have a feel Big Boy might become one of my new go-to places when I need to run out to get something to eat for lunch. 😀🍔🍟❤️

Downtown details.

I was running some errands around downtown Cincinnati this afternoon, and I was kind of shocked to see that the Tiffany & Co. at Vine and Fifth Streets had closed…

It’s real shame. A while back the downtown TJ Maxx moved across the river to Newport. Then the downtown Macy’s closed their doors. And now Tiffany has left. The only real place to any shopping in the Central Business District is Saks Fifth Avenue. It getting harder and harder to do holiday or birthday shopping in CBD. And that’s a real shame. Also a real shame is the huge, old beautiful pine tree they cut down to display on Fountain Square for a little over a month…

I wish they would just get a big fake tree or come up with some alternative to chopping down a very old tree every year. But in an effort to remain positive, downtown did recently get a Frisch’s Big Boy in Carew Tower on Fifth Street…

I’ll have to check out the new Big Boy soon. Honestly, I keep forgetting it’s over there.

I guess the world giveth and taketh away. It seems like CBD has been more on the taketh side lately. And that also is a real shame.

Frisch’s Pumpkin Pie.

A treasured seasonal treat is back: Frisch’s pumpkin pie!

Frisch’s Big Boy has been baking pumpkin pie from the same closely guarded secret recipe and the best-available, highest-quality ingredients for over 50 years. Famous for the flaky, handmade pastry crust, creamy pumpkin filling and the perfect balance of special spices, Frisch’s pumpkin pie is a dessert worthy of even the most deserving individuals.

We were invited to tour the Frisch’s Big Boy bakery in Cincinnati to see how they bake their pies fresh, each day. But the scheduling didn’t work out. And unfortunately, we missed out on a great opportunity to see where all that deliciousness is made. With Thanksgiving right around the corner, I had to pick up a Frisch’s pumpkin pie just for the two of us so we wouldn’t have to share…

Look at that pumpkin pie gorgeousness…

And that is what pure pumpkin pie heaven looks like. It’s still easily some of the best pumpkin pie I’ve had ever had. Thanks to Frisch’s Big Boy and the Powers Agency for hooking us up with one of their delicious pumpkin pies. You should definitely pick up a couple, three pies for your Thanksgiving celebrations. You’ll be thankful you did. YUM! 🙂

Happy Thanksgiving Eve!

I brought my peeps at Deskey in a pumpkin pie today to celebrate Thanksgiving Eve!

We were given a gift card to try one of these delicious pumpkin pies. We tried on a couple of different occasions to sample the goodness for ourselves. But they were surprisingly all sold out. So we’re thinking that those must be some really incredible pumpkin pies. You know, they say that good things come to those who wait. And that absence makes the heart grow fonder. And it’s very, very true. Because tonight, we finally got to take home a Frisch’s Big Boy pumpkin pie to enjoy for ourselves. And it was well worth the wait…

It was a really cold night, and we hung in there as long as we could. But after the 7th inning
stretch, we packed it in and headed for the warmth of home to finish watching the game…

And the Reds ended up winning 5-4 on Joey Votto’s walk-off single! Hopefully, it’ll be a
little bit warmer when we go to the game on Sunday to see Cueto pitch against Strasburg!
But it’s amazing to finally have baseball back in town! Go Reds! 🙂

Frisch’s Big Boy.

On our way back downtown from running some errands, we had lunch at Frisch’s Big Boy.
