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 โ€œpumpkin spice mix.โ€ 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. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡ฝ๐ŸŒฎ๐ŸŽƒ๐Ÿบโค๏ธ

Metro+Transit.

Cincinnati Metro has moved to the Transit app with EZ Fare

The Transit app with EZ Fare gives Cincinnati riders a single, seamless way to pay for almost all of our rides. You can now buy and store passes for Metro, NKY’s Tank, Butler County RTA and the streetcar CB Connector all in one place. Unfortunately, it doesn’t offer a way to pay for the $30 Regional Stored-Value Cards that I like to use. I’ll still have to purchase those at one of the streetcar stations. But it’s still nice to have a couple of Metro passes and CB Connector passes stored in the transit app just in case of emergency. It’s pretty cool really.

Speaking of pretty cool, look at how tall the building is getting across the street from where I used to work…

And I accidentally snapped this photo on the bus, but I kinda like it…

I like riding the bus. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸšŒ๐Ÿšงโค๏ธ

FC|C Warehouse sale.

And while they were queueing up for sneakers over on Fourth Street, I was queueing up inside the Westin Hotel for the annual FC Cincinnati warehouse sale…

Everything was pretty much half-off the original price…

I got us a whole bunch of new FC Cincinnati gear. I got Genifer the t-shirt and two tanks in the photo above. And I got an away jersey, t-shirt, long-sleeved shirt, and a hoodie. With that, I’m good on FC|C gear for a very, very long time to come. ๐Ÿ˜€โšฝ๏ธโค๏ธ

Whatchya waiting for?

Check out this line outside of downtown sneaker shop, Unheardof

The line went all the way down the block. As it turns out, they were queued up for these Halloween sneakers. ๐Ÿ˜ถ๐Ÿ‘Ÿโค๏ธ

Checking in on the OscarCams.

On our way home, I checked in on the OscarCams, and Oscar was just sitting in his chair just staring at the other chair like someone was sitting in it…

And then he turned and looked right at the camera…

The whole thing was pretty creepy. I wish I would have had my phone horizontal instead of vertical. I would have been able to get better screenshots. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ“ท๐Ÿ‘ปโค๏ธ

More Fiery Hen.

After work tonight, we stopped back at Fiery Hen on Court Street…

Genifer ordered their burger of the day…

And of course, I had Fiery Hen’s chicken tenders. Again.

This time we got to try Fiery Hen’s banana pudding…

Genifer said her burger was just okay. My chicken tenders were awesome. Again. And the banana pudding was terrific. Banana pudding is sooo good. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ”๐ŸŸ๐Ÿ”๐ŸŒโค๏ธ

 

 

Good morning from Northside.

Such beautiful sunrises. Good morning from Northside.๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„โค๏ธ

#TBT Pause for paws.

Four years ago, the bud dog wasn’t feeling very well…

We thought he just came down with a bug or something. And we were hoping he’d feel better in the morning. ๐Ÿ˜ฅ๐Ÿพโค๏ธ

Good morning from Northside.

We could still see the full moon this morning…

And the clouds were pretty too…

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

Oh, what a night!

After work this evening, I met Genifer at Mabley Garage on Race Street…

And we walked over to one of our favorite places from when we used to live downtown,ย  Horse & Barrel on Walnut Street…

And then we walked over to another of our old favorite places, Igby’s

And Tuesdays are $1 oysters and $3 oyster shooters at Igby’s…

After trying some oysters, we walked around the corner to Aronoff Center…

We were about to see JERSEY BOYS! And we were sooo excited…

It was the first time Jersey Boys returned to Cincinnati since we saw it back in 2012

And it was every bit as incredible as we remembered it. The best part is… we get to see the show for a second time on Sunday afternoon! ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŽถโค๏ธ
