Happy hour in Pendleton.

Just to the north of Jack Casino and just to the east of Over-the-Rhine lies the Pendleton neighborhood of downtown Cincinnati. Genifer noticed on Instagram that the relatively new 3-Point Brewery in Pendleton was having a Pop-Up Happy Hour Wednesday with $2 beers from 5-7pm. So after work this evening, we stopped in Pendleton to finally check out a couple places that were new to us.

We haven’t been to Pendleton since we moved to Northside. Back then all that was there was Nation. Now there are all sorts of new places like Luquis Q barbeque

Across the street is Boomtown Biscuits & Whiskey

And next door to Boomtown is CHX

And next to CHX is 3-Points Urban Brewery…

3-Points is absolutely beautiful inside…

I started with a Sinking Orca Oatmeal Stout

And Genifer tried their Shoal Cincy Stout

Both beers were really good. That little CHX guy kept staring at us…

He reminded us of Oscar with his beady little eyes.

We ordered a small original breaded banty with fries from the bar and just a little while later, we received a text that our banty was ready to be picked up…

And there’s our order…

Our CHX was so good! There were so many fries in that bag. It was like a neverending bag of fries. They just kept regenerating themselves no matter how many we ate. And their dipping sauces were legit too. But the star of the show for me was the hushpuppies. Then again, I love hushpuppies. I also tried their Magic Wand Kettle Sour

And Genifer tried one of their spicy margarita draft cocktails…

Both 3-Point and CHX were awesome. It was a great way to celebrate our anniversary

We can’t wait to come back to 3-Point and CHX. And we also can’t wait to check out Lucius Q and Boomtown. And eat at Nation again. It’s been way too long. Geez… Pendleton is really on the serious upswing! 😀🍺🐔🤫🐶❤️

Nation Kitchen+The Derby.

We went to Nation Kitchen & Bar in Pendleton for a late lunch this afternoon…

We shared their fried bologna sammich, a grilled cheeses and some loaded tots…

Nation’s fried bologna sammich is just out of this world…

Afterwards, we hung around to watch The Derby and have a mint julep…

It was a fun afternoon. Awful lot of hype and build-up for such a short race. On the way home, we saw this city squirrel…


Nation Kitchen & Bar.

Tonight, we walked up into Pendleton just passed the casino to go celebrate Genifer’s first day at her new job at Nation. It’s been a minute since we were last at Nation, and that’s much too long…

We finally got to try Nation’s fried bologna sammich…

And it was outstanding! Of course, we got some loaded tots to go with our sammich…

The courtyard behind Nation is very pretty.

And I love my little urban alleys…

You really can’t beat Nation. You can’t beat it at all. 🙂
