Covington Yard & Holiday Spirits.

This afternoon we headed out to cross the river over into Kentucky…

On our way, we drove by the new soccer stadium in the West End…

It looks pretty nice. Too bad the team that will be playing in the there is so terrible. We also drove by our old apartment building

And then it was over the river into Kentucky…

And then we were at Covington Yard

Genifer had a sangria slushie…

There are three shipping containers restaurants at Covington Yard: Mr. Bulgogi Korean BBQ, Django Western Taco and Yardbird…

We can get delicious Django tacos whenever we want and Mr. Bulgogi wasn’t open so we shared their delicious chicken sammich and fries from Yardbird…

That chicken sammich was really delicious.

Genifer had a bourbon slush and I had a Mango Cart…

Covington Yard is so fun. On our way back home, we stopped in Over-the-Spirits at Holiday Spirits

We talked about all the trips we’d like to take when the pandemic is over.

And we watched a Black Lives Matter march go by on Liberty Street…

There was the new stadium again…

And we’ve come full circle. We had a really fun afternoon. 😀🐔🍟🍻❤️

Forecastle Fest 2020.

They released the 2020 lineup this morning for Forecastle Fest

And it looks like we’ll be heading back to Louisville this summer to see Jack Johnson play on Friday! Plus both the Louisville Bats and Louisville City FC play at home on Saturday. It’s already shaping up for another fun weekend in July! 😀🗺️🎶❤️

Louisville is pretty awesome.

We had such a good time in Louisville this weekend. Our hotel was right across the street from KFC Yum Center. It was the perfect location for our trip. On Friday, we walked to Lousiville’s Waterfront Park where we saw The Killers at Forecastle and had some incredible Louisville-style pizza from Bearno’s afterward. On Saturday, we walked to get coffee from Please&Thank You. We were just going to get coffee and go back to the hotel. But we wandered off to find a house close by where Thomas Edison lived for a year when he was nineteen and then proceeded to stumble upon three breweries within a few blocks of each other… Falls City, Akasha, and Goodwood. We made it back to the hotel to rest and change before we headed back out to walk over to Against the Grain Brewing at Lousiville Slugger Field before we watched a Lousiville Bats game and met the Louisville Bat mascot. Afterward, we had more Lousiville-style pizza from Impellizzeri’s. Sunday morning we had breakfast at Dish on Market before heading home. Louisville is just a little over an hour away. We’ll definitely have to come back when Louisville City finish their USL soccer stadium if not sooner. 😀🗺️📷❤️

Who knew Louisville is so dang awesome? And we can’t wait to go back.

Seen and noted.

It’s almost that time of year again…

The best weekend in all of sports. Those things must take a lot of planning. But I’m really kinda surprised they didn’t make it all out of Kentucky blue, what with being in Northern Kentucky and all. 🙂

Pause for paws.

Oscar got his haircut today! Here’s a couple before photos of him all fuzzy & scruffy…

He gets his hair cut over at Wags-n-Whiskers across the river in Newport, Kentucky…

And here’s super handsome, all-clean and dapper Oscar…

He’s so handsome! And pretty hilarious with all his favorite toys…


Seen and noted.

We went to the grocery tonight where we saw this soda Super Bowl display….

Those things must take a lot of planning. When we got home, Oscar took it upon himself to see if we had picked up anything good…


Braxton Brewing Co.

After Genifer got home from work, we ventured over across the river to Covington…

To finally check out Braxton Brewing Company

I was tinkering with the idea of coming over yesterday to check it out. Braxton was having a Block Party. But I thought it would be way more fun to wait and check out Braxton for the first time with Genifer.

We got a taster flight with Storm Golden Cream Ale, Dead Blow Tropical Stout, Dead Blow brewed with Starter Coffee and Level Saison

The Dead Blow with Starter Coffee was out of this world. Was it beer? Was it coffee? There’s no need to decide. It was just pure amazing.

After the taster, I got a Storm and Genifer got a Dead Blow on nitro…

We followed that up with two of the Dead Blows brewed with Starter Coffee. Outstanding.

Google Maps has an awesome 360º interactive view of the interior of the Braxton taproom

We hung out and watched the Pats eek out the one-point win over the Giants.

Great beers. Awesome place. We’ll definitely be back! 🙂

Oscar got a haircut today!

Oscar, our little bud dog got a haircut today at Wags-N-Whiskers in Newport…

Oscar looks sooo handsome! Diana at Wags-N-Whiskers did such an amazing job with our little bud. Genifer took all these photos of Oscar. 🙂

Wedding details.

Genifer found her wedding dress today at Donna Salyers’ Fabulous Bridal in Covington

We’re so excited to be getting married in February. 🙂

UPDATE: Here’s the photo she posted to her Instagram

Seen & noted.

They do some pretty creative seasonal displays in the foyer of the Newport Kroger…

It could have easily been included in supermarket displays worth photographing. I bet those things take some serious planning! 🙂
