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! 😀🧀🌭❤️

Taco Tuesday.

Today was another Silverglades Deli on Eighth Taco Tuesday…

I love Silverglades Taco Tuesdays. 😀🌮❤️

My 5-year anniversary lunch.

There was a lunch at Arnold’s to celebrate my 5-year anniversary today. I had a burger and a Braxton Graeter’s Black Raspberry Chocolate Chip Milk Stout

It’s nice to feel appreciated. 😀🍔🖐️🍾❤️

Bakersfield Taco Bar.

An incredible taco bar from Bakersfield showed up in one of the conference rooms at work today. There were big tubs of short rib and pollo rojo and Bakersfield queso…

Look at all that delicious Bakersfield salsa…

And of course, there were tubs of Bakersfield’s famous guacamole…

It made for a very unexpected but pretty terrific lunch…

I wish stuff like this would show up in the office every day. 😀🌮❤️

Spoon&Cellar’s Steakburger.

Recently, I found an unused Downtown Gift Card while I was organizing. Over on DowntownCincy.com, I was scanning the list of all the restaurants that accept Downtown Gift Cards looking for something new and different from lunch. I noticed that one of the participants was Spoon&Cellar at the new Holiday Inn just around the corner from our office over on Seventh Street. I had Spoon&Cellar’s club sammich a while back and it was really good. So today, I decided to use a portion of Downtown Gift Card and get a Spoon&Cellar Steakburger with bacon for lunch…

That was a really excellent burger. Nothing fancy just a really good burger. 😀🍔🍟❤️

It’s what’s for lunch.

I had cheese coneys from Sports Page on Main for lunch today…

They were one of the specials of the day: buy three coneys, get one free. And you can’t beat that. They weren’t exact Skyline but they were still pretty dang good. 😀🧀🌭❤️
