Running around on a Friday.

Before I started work this morning, we ran over to Whole Foods at Rookwood Commons in Hyde Park to get some groceries…

The grocery aisles at Whole Foods are one-way streets…

Someday, we’ll have to try Ninja Squirrel Sriracha…

And some of these Bearitos…

And this spicy chicken noodle soup…

Summer must be here! Because we found a mini-keg of Bell’s Oberon!

Whole Foods has some really good stuff! And speaking of good stuff on our way back home from Whole Foods, we stopped for some delicious Biggby Coffee

After I finished all my work for the day, we walked down to Higher Gravity for a beer…

Later, we walked the dogs around the block…

And we got to see this ScareCorona all lit up…

And finally, good evening from Northside…

Today was a good day. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿ›๏ธโ˜•๏ธ๐Ÿบ๐Ÿฆ โค๏ธ

COVID-19 Carryout: Second Place.

We noticed on Instagramย that Second Place has started selling their delicious bourbon slushes to go. So you know we had to get a couple of slushies…

I think they repainted the building next to Second Place…

And The Littlefield was open for carry-out as well…

And we sat out in our backyard and enjoyed our slushes…

Hopefully this mess will start to look better very soon…

And Oscar hopes so too…

What a great way to send a Friday evening. Ugly or not, I love our backyard. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿก๐Ÿปโค๏ธ

Good evening from Northside.

Tonight was another Cincinnati social Front Porch Pours. The last time we were at the grocery, we got this bag of Malibu Rum Punch for tonight…

The dogs got to hang out with us on our front porch too…

When we were done with our drinks, we took the dogs for a walk around the block…

Good evening from Northside. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿน๐Ÿพ๐ŸŒ„โค๏ธ

Today was a good day.

We got coffee from Sidewinder this morning and they spelled my name with two D’s…

Grey gave us the afternoon off for Easter weekend. Thanks, Grey!

This afternoon, we ran over to Genifer’s office to pickup a laptop. And on the way home, we stopped to get Skyline carry-out for lunch…

Hello, delicious cheese coneys…

Ohmigosh. We haven’t had Skyline in forever! It was sooo good. And later this evening, we ran down the street to Northside Yacht Club

We picked up some Miller High Life’s and some of NSYC’s famous peanut tequila…

Cheers to the weekend! We wished we would have had the peanut butter tequila for last weekend’s Front Porch Pours. We just hung out, had some drinks and listened to music tonight. It was a good day. ๐Ÿ˜€โ˜•๏ธ๐Ÿง€๐ŸŒญ๐Ÿป๐ŸŽถ๐Ÿค—โค๏ธ

We survived another week of shelter-in-place. Four weeks down.

Front Porch Pours.

A Cincinnati experiential agency came up with up with the idea of Front Porch Pours

Weโ€™re keeping the Cincinnati connection strong by collectively gathering for a city-wide distant socializing happy hour, Front Porch Pours.

To โ€œattendโ€ guests will need a Porch Pours party kit. Weโ€™ll send you everything you need, — including, themed cocktail recipes, an exclusive playlist, invitations to send to your friends and neighbors, and more!

Why are we doing this? To create unity in a distant community. To strengthen our city bond by doing the same thing at the same time, but in different places. This isnโ€™t a city-wide virtual call in. Itโ€™s more than that. Itโ€™s communal without digital. Being present in the moment, together.

We want everyone to join in. From OTR to Oakley, Sayler Park to Hyde Park, Westwood to Winton Hills, neighbors in all 52 hoods will kick open their door, post up on their stoop and throw back a cold one.

We walked down our street to visit with our neighbor friends Kelly and Greg. I forgot to take a photo but Genifer got one later in the evening…

And when we got home, we found a Xalapa from One Well Brewing in Kalamazoo…

All things considered, it was a pretty fun Friday night. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿปโค๏ธ

One year ago today.

One year ago, I watched the start of March Madness at work on my iPad and iPod…

And then after work, we stopped by Queen City Radio to watch some more hoops…

And we shared a delicious Whip Classic burger…

Mmmmmm, Whip Classic. I can’t wait until we can have a Whip Classic again.

And Opening Day was only SIX days away…

Oh good times. I really miss sports. Hopefully, they’ll start again soon. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ€๐Ÿป๐Ÿ”โค๏ธ

Our last trip to Taft’s Brewporium?

Despite the world starting to spiral into a pandemic-induced panic, we went out for pizza tonight at our favorite pizza joint, Taft’s Brewpourium. Hamilton County and Cincinnati still don’t have any confirmed cases of the Corona Virus. But you really wouldn’t know it because we practically had the entire Brewpourium all to ourselves…

And little did we know that it would be the last time we’d be dining out at a restaurant for the foreseeable future…

Ohio Governor Mike DeWine announced on Saturday that the Ohio Department of Health issued a Director’s Order that will close all Ohio bars and restaurants to in-house patrons, effective at 9:00 pm, March 15, 2020. Restaurants with take-out and delivery options will still be able to operate those services, even as their dining rooms are temporarily closed.

Our world will probably never be the same after the Corona Virus. But hopefully, we can get Taft’s delicious New Haven-style pizza again sometime soon. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ•๐Ÿบโค๏ธ

Our Boxing Day.

Today was Boxing Day. This morning we watched Arsenal draw with Bournemouth in Mikel Arteta’s first match in charge of my favorite club.

After the match, we walked down to Django Western Taco for lunch. I had one of Chef Josh’s amazing fried chicken tacos. We also shared Django’s amazing jerk chicken quesadilla with some Django chips and salsa. And when we were done with lunch, we shared Django’s Belgian chocolate bread pudding…

Everything was really good, as always. But the bread pudding was just incredible. I’ve had a love affair with bread pudding ever since my second hip surgery. We had never tried Django’s bread pudding before. Now I’ll get it every time we eat at Django. Or every time I feel the need some amazing bread pudding.

After we were done at Django, we walked down Hamilton Avenue to Higher Gravity. We hadn’t been to HG in a quick minute. But JJVE gave us a gift card that we thought we would put to use a little bit before the start of the new year while we were still on our holiday break…

The best beer we tried in our taster flight this afternoon was Founders French Toast B@stard Scotch Ale

It was a pretty amazing beer. Very tasty. We watched our Leicester City get thumped by Liverpool. And while we were at HG, we bought our tickets for Higher Gravity’s New Year’s Eve Beer Bash.

Later, the sky was really pretty when we were walking the dogs. It’s not every day you see beautiful night-time clouds…

When we got back from our walk, I put my scarf on Oscar and I think he really liked it because he wore it around until we went upstairs…

And when we got upstairs, we watched some of The Witcher on Netflix. It was a pretty good Boxing Day. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸฅŠโค๏ธ

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
