Sunday afternoon at Taft’s Brewpourium.

We went around the corner toย Taft’s Brewpourium for lunch this afternoon. We had one of Taft’s delicious Bloody Mary’s…

And some delicious New Haven style pizza with Taft’s incredible BBQ wings…

We really love the Brewpourium. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ•๐Ÿ”โค๏ธ

Saturday afternoon in OtR.

We got up this morning, walked the dogs and then hopped on our Metro 17 bus to head down into Over-the-Rhine. Today was the first spring edition of The City Fleaย in OtR’s beautifulย Washington Park

Thornwoods! I used to work with Ben at Deskey. He and his wife started this pop-up and their stuff is really awesome!

I also love all the creatures fromย Happy Groundhog Studios…

I also used to work with James Billiter at LPK, who does some terrific stuff as well…

It was another great edition of The City Flea. Afterward, we headed over to get a drink from one of Genifer’s favorite OtR spots, Sundry and Vice.ย 

And today, S&V had homemade empanadas…

DANG! I love empanadas so much!

Genifer loves Sundry and Vice’s draft Old Fashioned…

Next, we walked up Vine Street and were drawn in by this sign in front ofย panino

We’ll have to stop back at panino for sammiches. I’ve heard nothing but good things.

It seems like there is always something “coming soon” in OtR…

And then we walked over to Mecca

And we had one of their Chunkers…

And some popcorn…

And then we hopped in an Uber and headed back home. It was a really fun afternoon wandering around Over-the-Rhine. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ›๏ธ๐Ÿฅƒ๐Ÿฟโค๏ธ

 

Google Maps Local Guides Level 8!

I’ve been working really hard on my Google Maps Local Guidesย lately. I posted photos and reviews of almost every place we stopped on our recent epic road tripย to try to propel myself from Level 7 up into the promised land of Level 8. And I was getting sooo darn close…

And thenย I finally made it to Google Maps Local Guides Level 8!ย 

HOORAY! Level 8! It doesn’t really mean a lot. I just think it’s fun. It’s kind of like my Swarm. It’s another way to share experiences and especially another place to share all the dang photos I take of every little thing every day.

And that’s really why I like Google Maps Local Guides! #LetsGuide ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ—บ๏ธ8โƒฃโค๏ธ

Seen and noted.

Check out this big daddy long legs that we saw out on our back patio this evening…

Remember when we were walking through Parker Woods and weย saw 125 daddy long legs on one walk? Yeah… That was pretty crazy. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ•ท๏ธ๐Ÿ‘€โค๏ธ

And then I mowed the grass in our backyard…

We still need to figure out what we’re doing with our backyard. It has so much potential. But we really can’t decide on how we want the finished product to look. We keep looking at idea after idea and even started a Pinterest board to collect and organize our inspirations. But it hasn’t done much to help. And it’s kind of a bummer.

Happy National Pizza Party Day!

We stopped at NYPD on our way home to pick up a cheese pizza so we could celebrate National Pizza Party Day!ย 

And it was delicious. Every day should be National Pizza Party Day!ย ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ•โค๏ธ

It’s what’s for lunch.

I went out to lunch today to Taste of Belgium in The Banks with some coworkers. And I had this grilled ham and cheese sammich that was a lunch feature…

It was ham with Gruyรจre, Havarti, goat cheese, caramelized apples & shallots, and bรฉchamel, whatever that is. And it was amazing! That’s all. It was just an amazing, amazing sammich. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿฅชโค๏ธ

Good morning from Grey.

Good morning from Grey Midwestย in downtown Cincinnati

Every morning, Grey provides breakfast for everyone. Fridays are bagel days…

I had this everything bagel with garden vegetable cream cheese spread…

And it was awesome! What a delicious way to start the morning. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿฅฏโค๏ธ

Oh, and there were some cool clouds later in the day…

Good evening from Northside.

It was another rainy evening in Northside. Sometimes when it rains, the colors become so vivid. Tonight was one of those nights. It was really beautiful…

Good evening from Northside. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„โ˜”๏ธโค๏ธ

Covington’s Flying Axes.

This afternoon the creative team at Grey Midwest had an outing to go try our hand at some axe throwing over at Flying Axes in Covington

It was a bit daunting at first with axe in hand staring down the bullseye…

But once you figured out the motion and the distance, it was really a lot of fun...

I even managed to splinter my axe…

Who knew that axe throwing would be such a really good time? I think it would be pretty fun to get a group together to join the axe throwing league night…

Please exit through the gift shop…

Afterward, we walked over for a drink at Braxton

And then I caught an Uber home. It was a really fun evening, and I got to know some of my new coworkers a little bit better.ย ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿงฟ๐Ÿบโค๏ธ
