Downtown details.

You know what I think would be interesting? I think it would be really interesting to photograph all the storefronts in downtown Cincinnati and Over-the-Rhine. Even since we’ve left downtown there have been a lot of places that have closed their doors for good and there have been even more places that have opened, either in those spaces or in new spaces. It would be an interesting study in the continual evolution of urban spaces particularly downtown Cincinnati. How long before something new moves into this space on Main Street and the Spatz Foods sign is gone forever? We would walk by this sign every time we headed out to do something when we lived downtown…

Downtown Cincinnati is in a state of continual change and it’d beat really neat to have the time to document those changes and downtown details better. πŸ˜€πŸ™οΈβ€οΈ

Thirsty Thursday: QCE, NSD & NYPD.

After work, we stopped back at Queen City Exchange for a beer…

It’s such a fun place with so many great beers. Then we walked across the street to have a drink at our other new favorite place, Northside Distilling

I love their cocktail called The Dude. It’s their take on a White Russian…

It’s delicious. And speakingof delicious, on the way home we stopped at NYPD to pick up one of their delicious cheese pizzas for dinner…

I really love Thursdays. πŸ˜€πŸΊπŸ₯ƒπŸ•β€οΈ

It’s a sign.

We saw this sign for a new Cambodian restaurant in Northside called Mahope

I’ve never had Cambodian food before. And I can’t wait to try it sometime soon. πŸ˜€β€οΈ

Seen and noted: It’s a sign.

We saw this sign on Hamilton Avenue today a just few doors down from our beloved Sidewinder Coffee

It’s always exciting when a new place is set to move into the neighborhood. πŸ˜€β˜•οΈβ€οΈ

Lunch at Sacred Beast.

We went down into Over-the-Rhine for some holiday shopping this afternoon but first, we stopped at new diner spot, Sacred Beast for lunch…

It’s really nice inside…

We ordered a bunch of food…

I ordered the crispy chicken with dipping sauces…

We shared a side order of fries…

Genifer ordered a single cheeseburger…

And apparently, the single cheeseburger has TWO patties! The double cheeseburger has three patties. That’s crazy! Oh, and we also added a side order of onion rings…

Holy geez. Everything was so delicious and awesome! We ate every last bite. And we were so stuffed. We can’t wait to come back for more at Sacred Beast. πŸ˜€πŸβ€οΈ

Chocolate mint stout and empanadas.

After work this evening, I hopped the Cincinnati Metro 11 bus…

I rode the eleven up to East Walnut Hills…

I met her just around the corner from her work at Woodburn Brewery. Because we saw that Woodburn had their Chocolate Mint Imperial Stout back on tap. It’s the beer that tastes just like a Girl Scouts Thin Mint cookie…

There were also empanadas from Che. I really love empanadas…

We got the trio of empanadas. We tried the beef, Cuban and pepperoni empanadas…

All of them were very good but the traditional beef empanada is always my favorite.

I was a fun Friday evening with great empanadas and a pretty outstanding beer. We’ll have to do this again soon. πŸ˜€πŸΊβ€οΈ

It’s a sign.

It’s a sign for Bay Horse Cafe on Main Street. πŸ˜€πŸŽβ€οΈ

It’s a sign.

Even though the business has closed it’s doors, I hope this sign hangs above Vine Street in downtown Cincinnati forever. πŸ˜€βš οΈβ€οΈ

Le’s Pho & Sandwiches.

Today, I walked over to Court Street to get lunch from Le’s Pho & Sandwiches

I ordered a Chicken Bahn Mi sammich and an egg roll…

Their sammiches are very delicious and really inexpensive. πŸ˜€πŸœβ€οΈ

Rhinegeist on Spring Grove?

We took a different way home from work this evening. We went home up Spring Grove Avenue and we passed by this huge new buildingΒ in Camp Washington just around the corner from Northside…

It must be a Rhinegeist brewing or canning facility. I wonder if they’re going to put a taproom in there as well? I guess we’ll have to wait and see… πŸ˜€πŸ‘»β€οΈ
