Pure Michigan.

We drove up north for a long weekend in Michigan to visit my parents…

Even though we’re still firmly in the grips of the COVID-19 pandemic, we still managed to get out to do a surprising amount of stuff…

We sampled some terrific beers that my parents gathered on their travels like New Belgium’s Atomic Pumpkin. We went out to VerHage Fruit Farm and Cider Mill for donuts and fresh apple cider. We had lunch at Bell’s Eccentric Cafe and Presidential Brewing and COVID Carryout dinner from Four Rose’s in Plainwell. We also got Biggby Coffees and Sweetwater’s Donuts. And most importantly, we got to hang out with my parents because it’s been way too long since we’ve seen them. It was a great weekend. We hope the powers that be can curtail the pandemic soon and we can get up to Michigan more often next year. 😀🗺️⬆️❤️

A Westside Saturday.

We were over on the Westside of Cincinnati this afternoon. And we stopped at Cancun Mexican Grill for lunch. Genifer had been wanting a quesadilla for a while now. We’ve eaten at the Cancun at Western Bowl. But we’ve never eaten at this Cancun location at Glenway Crossings before…

It’s surprisingly big on the inside…

Genifer ordered her quesadilla…

I got a ground beef Chimichanga. It’s hidden under all that sour cream…

See? There it is…

At the end of the day, it didn’t really hit the spot. Genifer didn’t really care for her quesadilla and my Chimi just tasted like sour cream. Bummer. On our way back home, we decided to stop and finally check out West Side Brewing

It was a surprisingly big place as well…

We stopped to try their Pumpkin Spice Infusion

It was their amber ale run through a contraption to infuse the beer with vanilla and some sort of “pumpkin spice mix.” It was pretty good.

All and all, everything was just okay. But that’s why you try new things. Sometimes they’re awesome and sometimes they’re just okay. That’s how you know. 😐🇲🇽🌮🎃🍺❤️

ArtWorks mural: Completed.

This morning they were finishing taking down the rest of the scaffolding across Eighth Street. It looks like The ArtWorks Elizabeth Nourse mural is finished…
To be honest, it’s looked finished to me for quite a while now. Over the last few weeks, there really haven’t been any real noticeable changes to the mural. I’m guessing it was a lot of final touches and little details. When I was leaving work this evening, I snapped this photo of the finished mural…
A lot of pretty talented people put in a lot of hard work to make this happen. 🙂
