Thursdays are for Whip Classics.

It must be Thursday. We stopped at Queen City Radio for a Whip Classic burger, chili dog and some fries…

I still think they have one of the best burgers, if not THE best burger in all of Cincinnati. Best fries too. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ”๐ŸŒญ๐ŸŸโค๏ธ

 

We โค๏ธ Street City Pub.

This afternoon we stopped at the relatively new Street City Pub on Sixth Street…

We thought it would be packed with there being a home Bengals game today but oddly that wasn’t the case at all. We had the entire place to ourselves…

We just wanted to grab a little bite to eat. We shared some peach bourbon BBQ wings…

And these monster Irish potato skins…

They were awesome. And they were on the really cheap because Street City Pub has the rare Sunday happy hour. In fact every day, all is happy hour at Street City Pub in the bar & lounge. You know what else they have? Bread pudding…

I love bread pudding! And theirs was sooo good. We’ll definitely be back very soon to Street City Pub. They have stuff on their menu that I just have to try like their Irish Melt smash burger or their Fretboard battered cod. And I’m going to be needing more of their incredible bread pudding! ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ชโค๏ธ

Oh, what a night!

After work this evening, I met Genifer at Mabley Garage on Race Street…

And we walked over to one of our favorite places from when we used to live downtown,ย  Horse & Barrel on Walnut Street…

And then we walked over to another of our old favorite places, Igby’s

And Tuesdays are $1 oysters and $3 oyster shooters at Igby’s…

After trying some oysters, we walked around the corner to Aronoff Center…

We were about to see JERSEY BOYS! And we were sooo excited…

It was the first time Jersey Boys returned to Cincinnati since we saw it back in 2012

And it was every bit as incredible as we remembered it. The best part is… we get to see the show for a second time on Sunday afternoon! ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŽถโค๏ธ

Gaslight Bar & Grill.

After work this evening, we stopped in Clifton’s Gaslight District

There were some really cool sidewalk artworks along Ludlow Avenue…

And we walked by parallel parking spots that had been converted into an awesome sociable parklet space

The recently renovated Gaslight Bar & Grill

It opened back in January in the old Ludlow Avenue library branch in Clifton…

And it has Clifton’s first rooftop bar…

Genifer ordered a veggie burger without the bun…

And I ordered the shrimp po’boy…

Everything was really delicious. Gaslight’s fries were outstanding. We wish we would have come to Gaslight sooner in the summer because their outdoor patio is really pretty amazing. We can’t wait to hang out here more next summer! ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ”๐Ÿค๐ŸŸโค๏ธ

Out and about in OtR.

After the Reds game, we rode the streetcar up into Over-the-Rhine to check out one of OtR’s newer bars called Homemakers

We just stayed for a drink but Homemakers seemed like a pretty relaxed place. Very, very retro. We also walked over to check out Longfellow’s Other Room

Longfellow’s Other Room is a rum bar with hundreds and hundreds of rums…

Longfellow’s Other Room tasted like a tropical vacation to me because I always drink rum when we’re on vacation. I could very easily see it becoming one of my favorite bars in OtR.

It seems like there’s always something new to check out in Over-the-Rhine. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿฅƒโค๏ธ

Fiery Hen.

Because it’s Thursday, we stopped to check out the relatively new, Fiery Hen,ย it’s just a couple of doors down from Queen City Exchange on Court Street…

Genifer tried one of their cocktails but I don’t remember which one…

I had a $2 Miller High Life. It’s the champagne of beers…

We started with some delicious Pimento Cheese Croquettes…

Genifer had the Chef salad with grilled chicken…

And I ordered the chicken tenders with fries…

You got to pick your spice level. I chose the second mildest, Nashville Mild. It still had a bit of kick. Next time, I’m going to get the least spicy, Yella Belly. And your choice of fries or saratoga chips and ranch or blue cheese. Obviously, I got fries and ranch. Everything was outstanding. I can’t wait to come back to Fiery Hen for more tenders. Because I really love chicken tenders. And these tenders were awesome.ย ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿฅ—๐Ÿ”๐ŸŸโค๏ธ

Taglio OtR.

After work this evening, we stopped at the new OtR Taglio. We’ve been to the Taglio out in Columbia-Tusculum a handful of times, and we thought their Detroit-style deep-dish pizza was just terrific. We were really excited to try their new location at 12th and Walnut Streets in Over-the-Rhine.

Since it was happy hour, we ordered these monster mozzarella sticks…

Then it was time for the main event, we had ordered the Pepperoni and Hot Honey deep-dish Detroit-style pizza. And it finally arrived…

Their pizza is delicious! When we were getting ready to leave, we saw Faces in Places

We love Taglio’s pizza. It’s so dang good. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ•โค๏ธ

It’s a sign.

Most Thursdays on our way home from work, we stop someplace to have a drink and maybe a bite to eat. Tonight, we stopped into Queen City Exchange again

We like that place. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿบโค๏ธ

Happy birthday, Higher Gravity!

It was Higher Gravity‘s second anniversaryย party weekend! So on the way home from work, we stopped in to wish them a happy birthday…

While we were hanging out at HG, we had some spicy cheese balls from Chameleon

Happy birthday, Higher Gravity! We’re very happy you’re in Northside! ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿป๐ŸŽ‚โค๏ธ

It must be Thursday.

After work this evening, we stopped at Queen City Radio for a Whip Classic burger, a cheese coney, and some fries. We think QCR has some of the best fries around…

On our way home, we checked in on the OscarCams to find Oscar sitting up on the arm of our sofa waiting patiently for us to get home…

What a silly head. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ”๐ŸŒญ๐ŸŸ๐Ÿ“ท๐Ÿพโค๏ธ
