It was another pretty day at Grey Midwest in downtown Cincinnati…

I just love that view from the ninth floor of our building. And speaking of love, there was a carrot cake in one of the Grey refrigerators…

It must be time for birthdays again. πŸ˜€πŸŽ‚β€οΈ

Urban Artifact’s 4th birthday party.

Today was Urban Artifact’s 4th birthday party

We tried the two Kaleidoscope variants, Pineapple Salsa and Pineapple Luau Spice…

They were outstanding! We took our beers and headed upstairs to the sanctuary…

UA had the space filled with a whole bunch of carnival games…

Our photo made on the Cincinnati Enquirer’s website

And we ordered some Wildfire Pizza Kitchen

We tried their new stuffed mushrooms…

And they were awesome! We love stuffed mushrooms. We also ordered some of their cheesy bread. Sooo cheesy, so good…

And we ordered a small Dad’s Favorite pizza…

Ohmigosh. Their stuff is really incredible. Everything is always just amazing…

UA also brought in a cotton candy machine. So I had some cotton candy…

And we had our first Keypunch of the season. Keypunch is what summer tastes like to me. It’s one of my all-time favorite beers. I’m excited that it’s Keypunch season…

It was a really fun afternoon, Happy birthday, Urban Artifact! You’ll always be one of our very favorite breweries. We’re so happy you’re in Northside. πŸ˜€πŸΊπŸ•β€οΈ

Today was Genifer’s birthday!

Today was my beautiful wife’s birthday. Genifer’s mom sent these fun balloons and very pretty flowers. When we opened the door to take the dogs on a walk, the flowers were sitting on our porch. We opened the door and the balloons scared poor Mack half to death. He jumped a foot straight up in the air…

Thank you to my parents for their lovely card. And thank you to everyone for all the happy birthday wishes. This afternoon we went out in OtR to celebrate…

We started at Queen City Radio…

We stopped by Cobblestone…

And Longfellows…

We walked up to The Pony…

And then we walked over to the new Holiday Spirits…

It was a really fun evening. Happy birthday, Genifer. I love you so much! πŸ˜€πŸŽ‚πŸŽŠπŸΊβ€οΈ
