It’s Skyline time!

It was Skyline Time for lunch today. Come to find out that in addition to being the Official Chili of our Cincinnati Reds, Skyline in is the Official Chili of our FC Cincinnati. And for a limited time, you could get a free FC Cincinnati cup with your purchase…

Done and done…

Skyline time is delicious. 😀🌭⚽️❤️

FC Cincinnati versus Nashville SC.

IT’S FC CINCINNATI MATCH DAY TWELVE! We missed the Wednesday night win against the Charlotte Independence. Those Wednesday night matches make for a really long rest of the week. We also missed FC|C’s win against the New York Red Bulls II two Saturdays ago because of my hip revision surgery. But we made it to last Saturday’s international Friendly against RCD Espanyol. And tonight, FC Cincinnati was hosting the other soon-to-be-an-MLS-team, Nashville SC…

Before the match, we stopped at Chicago Gyros & Dogs in Clifton for lunch…

And a $5 bucket of the Champagne of Beers, Miller High Life…

This is the first time we’ve actually eaten at Chicago Gyros & Dogs. Chicago Gyros & Dogs has become our go-to place whenever we order food from UberEats. It’s so good. And they’re the only place I’ve found that will deliver me delicious corn dogs whenever I want. And I love corn dogs. When we were getting ready to head over to the Nippert Stadium, the sky looked like this…

Come to find out, the match was on a lightning delay. And kick-off was pushed back until 8:30pm so we went to Mac’s to have a beer and watch some of the Red’s baseball game. Eventually, we headed over to Nippert Stadium when game time finally rolled around…

We were walking into Nippert right as the match was kicking off…

And it was a dream start for FC Cincinnati! Danni Konig scored the fastest goal in FC|C history by finding the back of the net in the FIRST MINUTE of the match!

And a quick video snippet of the atmosphere at Nippert Stadium and me trying in vain to get JimmyMcLaughlin to wave at us as he warmed up…

At halftime, FC|C still had a 1-0 lead over Nashville…

SPRINKLES!

Midweek FC Cincinnati signed their first MLS Designated Player, Fanendo Adi. Adi hails from Lagos, Nigeria, and scored 54 goals in 126 games in four seasons with the Portland Timbers. From the FC Cincinnati website

Adi originally came to Portland in May 2014 as a Designated Player on loan from FC Copenhagen, scoring nine goals and adding four assists in 24 games in his debut MLS season. Portland later completed the transfer and he then scored back-to-back 16-goal seasons in 2015 and 2016. In 2017, he registered his third-straight season with double-digit goals with 10, despite being sidelined the final two months of the year with injury.

With Copenhagen, Adi drew UEFA Champions League experience with group-stage appearances against Juventus, Real Madrid and Galatasaray.

And tonight Fanendo Adi made his FC|C debut coming on as a sub in the 72nd minute for the goal-scorer, Danni Konig…

I just missed the attendance again. It was announced that there was a crowd of 27,426  were at tonight’s match…

And the match would end in a 1-1 draw

FC Cincinnati’s next home match is next Sunday, August 11th at 6pm against Penn FC. So we’ll probably end up skipping that one, and just watching the match on TV. If it was an early game on Sunday like 2pm or even 4pm, we’d probably go. But we need to get ready for our week and that’s just too late for us to be running around on a Sunday evening.

Looking at the calendar, I think we’re also going to miss the match on Saturday, August 18th against Charleston Battery because we’ll be in Michigan. We’ll be sure to take one of our Chromecast and a couple of tablets with us to Michigan so we can stream that match through ESPN+ as well.

But thankfully, there’s a home game almost every Saturday for the entire summer. So it looks like the next match we’ll be able to make it to will be on Saturday, September 1st against Pittsburgh Riverhounds. We’ll see you at Nippert! 😀⚽️❤️

Taglio Pizza.

After my physical therapy, we stopped in Columbia Tusculum for lunch at Taglio Pizza. We first heard about Taglio through their Instagram. They are becoming quite well known for their deep dish Detroit style pizza. We weren’t aware there was such a thing as Detroit style pizza. But the photos looked amazing, we had to try this incredible looking pizza for ourselves…

We ordered the deep dish Spicy Italian…

And look at that beauty. It’s a work of art. A delicious, looking work of eatable art…

Taglio’s deep dish pizza is every bit as delicious as it looks. I can’t wait until we have the opportunity to eat it again. The best part of Taglio’s Detroit deep dish pizza is it only comes in one size with eight slice which means there were still plenty of leftovers for us to eat later. 😀🍕😍❤️

Lunch at someplace other than Arnolds.

We had lunch at nada today for a coworker celebration. Usually, we always have these sort of things at Arnold’s. It’s almost as if someone at work has a minority share in the ownership of the Arnold’s or something with the frequency we have group lunches there. It was really refreshing to go somewhere else. Anywhere else. And I haven’t been to nada in ages

I ordered the little nada sliders with steamed onion, cheese, jalapeño and sweet chili-glazed fries with crema. It was really good. I had forgotten how much I liked their little slider burgers…

Genifer and I will have to go check out their Vacation Vibes Wednesdays after work someday in the not too distant future. 😀🇲🇽🍔❤️

It’s what’s for lunch.

Genifer made this delicious Philly Cheesesteak Crescent Braid for lunch today…

It was really incredible. Plus, it combined two of my favorite things… cheesesteaks and crescent rolls. And that makes it awesome!

Happy trails, Orient.

I was walking back to the office up Main Street and noticed that Orient had closed…

Orient was an odd little place. You couldn’t pay with a credit card. They only took cash. I don’t really carry cash so I get didn’t eat there as often as I would have liked. My friend, Chuck used to live right above Orient and was convinced it was a front for something. Say what you will about the place, they had some great food. And I’m sad to see them go. They will be missed. 😀🍚❤️

 

Taco Bell Cantina.

When we were downtown last weekend for the Bunbury Music Festival, we walked over to the AT580 Building at the corner of Main and Sixth Streets to find the brand new Wahlburgers. And right next to the new Walhburgers, we also found a brand new Taco Bell Cantina. You know what I did today for lunch? I walked right back over to the AT580 Building to check out the new Taco Bell Cantina…

It’s one of the nicest Taco Bell’s I’ve ever been to, that’s for sure. And they weren’t stingy the sauce packets either. Just look at all that Fire Sauce…

I ordered my favorite, three Chalupa Supremes and a large Gatorade Fruit Punch. It’s pretty awesome to have Taco Bell as a quick and inexpensive lunch option in downtown Cincinnati. I’ll definitely be Living Mas at Main and Sixth in the near future. 😀🌮👍❤️

It’s Skyline time!

It was Skyline time for lunch today!

YUM! 😀🧀🌭❤️

Northside nubs.

I was planning on taking a half day this morning when Cincinnati Bell was installing our new Fioptics. But it took so long to get us up and running that I decided just to take the whole day off. Eventually, we decided to walk down to Melt to have a late lunch…

Genifer had a half Cobb Salad with chips and hummus and buffalo mac&cheese…

I had the Hoffner with classic mac&cheese…

Their sammiches are so outstanding, as is their mac&cheese. After we were done eating, we celebrated no longer having cable by sharing a Morning Glory cocktail…

And after we were done with lunch, we stopped into Higher Gravity for a flight…

It was a great way to celebrate no longer having cable and spend my first vacation day of the year. 😀🥪🍺🥃❤️

It’s Skyline Time!

It was Skyline Time for lunch today…

Somewhere between point A and point B, I accumulated $75 worth of Skyline gift cards.
I guess there’s going to be a lot more Skyline time in my future! 😀🧀🌭❤️
