Happy Fourth of July!

Happy Fourth of July! Happy birthday America! We walked through the one and only Northside Fourth of July Parade

We walked over to Northside Yacht Club for lunch…

NSYC was having an all-you-could-eat cookout with burgers and brats and fried chicken and all the delicious cookout sides. It was pretty amazing and so delicious…

And genifer tried one of Yacht Clubs’ Capri-Sun of Anarchy…

And then we walked over to Hoffner Park to check out the Rock ‘n Roll Carnival

We had one a UA Keypunch…

And had a slice of Chameleon cheese pizza…

It was a really good Northside Fourth of July! ‘MURICA! 😀🇺🇸❤️

Fourth of July.

Today was the annual Northside Fourth of July Parade. Last year, we skipped the parade because it was raining. And we were trying to get situated after just moving into our house. The weather this year wasmaybe a little on the warm side but pretty perfect. The parade was scheduled to step off from way up Hamilton Avenue at noon. So we walked down Pullan Avenue to try to stake out a spot streetside about fifteen minutes beforehand…

While we stood there waiting for our first glimpse of the parade, more and more people continued to line the sides of the street…

There was still no sign of the parade coming down the hill as we continued to bake in the hot noon sun…

So we started walking down Hamilton Avenue towards Hoffner Park…

Instead of standing with the masses, we walked down to Chase Avenue and proceeded over Northside Yacht Club. NSYC was having a Fourth of July USA beer & burger party with a Rhinegeist tap takeover

Genifer had the Burrito Mexican Lager. I had the Maracuja Gose with Passionfruit. And we shared in the legendary NSYC Burger awesomeness…

That was a really great burger! Afterwards, we walked over to Urban Artifact

And then we stopped back through Northside Rock n’ Roll Carnival for a little bit…

When we got home, we ordered a delicious NYPD Stationhouse pizza…

When we got upstairs, we could hear fireworks all around us but we couldn’t see any…

But then we started to see some from our bedroom window…

We had a great Fourth of July enjoying all things Northside. Maybe we’ll watch the parade next year. 😀🍔🍺🍻🎸🍕🇺🇸

Northside Rock n’ Roll Carnival.

This evening we walked down Hamilton Avenue to Jacob Hoffner Park in Northside to check out the Northside Rock n’ Roll Carnival in a celebration of all things 45223…

We got a couple of tokens for beer…

Because they had Urban Artifact’s Keypunch on tap!

The first Keypunch of the summer…

Northside’s NYPD and Bridges were serving food…

And so were Dojo Gelato and Red Sesame…

We got some delicious Red Sesame chicken tacos…

They had some pretty neat Northside Rock n’ Roll Carnival t-shirts…

And the proceeds from the t-shirts went to Happen and Bread Winner

Django Western Taco was also serving food as well…

We had to get a jerk chicken torta with pineapple and elote corn on the cob…

There was a large collection of really diverse and interesting bands all with very unique and distinctly different sounds…

What an incredibly fun celebration of the Northside community. 😀❤️🇺🇸

It’s another sign.

For the Northside Rock n’ Roll Carnival down at Hoffner Park…

And for the Northside Fourth of July Parade

We were just moving into our house during all of last year’s Northside Fourth of July festivities. We can’t wait to check it all out this year. Hopefully, it doesn’t rain. #MURICA😀🇺🇸❤️
