Making the rounds in OtR.

This afternoon, we rode the Metro 17 bus down into Over-the-Rhine. We found a gift card that still had some money on it. So we headed to Taft’s Ale House for lunch. We’ve been to Taft’s Ale House since our friend Chris’s birthday. Anymore it seems we just always go to Taft’s BrewpouriumΒ which is just around the corner from our house over on Spring Grove. We didn’t realize just how long it had been. It’s been so long they’ve built a whole new condo community at Race and Fourteenth Streets…

Hello, beautiful. Taft’s Ale House is so pretty…

When we were crossing the street, we saw another one of those #CincyStreetBots

I’ve really been digging Taft’s Cold Boy

Genifer ordered Taft’s Chicken Avocado Salad

And Saratoga chips with ranch…

I ordered two of Taft’s tri-tip sliders…

With tots and beer cheese…

And Taft’s had bread pudding. I love bread pudding. So I had to order it…

Taft’s is soooo good. Everything was delicious. Especially the bread pudding.

From Taft’s, we walked down to Washington Park to check out the last half hour or so of September’s edition of The City Flea

There were a couple of really dope hats at this Flea…

From Washinton Park, we started walking in the direction of Findlay Market. We walked by a few murals that I hadn’t seen before…

TAG! You’re it…

Findlay Market…

And then we walked over to Sam Adams Cincy Taproom

They were hosting their Oktoberfest…

We hung out for a minute but it was all sort of winding down. So we headed back over to Race Street to check out the new Goose+Elder

 

I love the restaurant bathroom trend of using wild floral print wallpapers…

Hi. And the other bathroom…

We had a White Russian…

And we ordered just a couple of little small plates to share like their watermelon…

And their mac&cheese…

Terrific stuff. I can’t wait to come back to eat a full meal at Goose+Elder…

Then we hopped in an Uber and headed home. It was a great afternoon in OtR. πŸ˜€πŸ™οΈβ€οΈ

Good morning from Northside.

An evening out in Northside.

We went out to Northside Tavern this evening for a drink…

We love Northside Tavern. On the way home, we got slices from Kitchen Factory

Kitchen Factory has some outstanding slices.

We love Northside. πŸ˜€πŸ₯ƒπŸ•β€οΈ

It’s a sign.

Slow! Outside of Spun Bicycles in Northside. πŸ˜€βš οΈβ€οΈ

Fiery Hen.

Because it’s Thursday, we stopped to check out the relatively new, Fiery Hen,Β it’s just a couple of doors down from Queen City Exchange on Court Street…

Genifer tried one of their cocktails but I don’t remember which one…

I had a $2 Miller High Life. It’s the champagne of beers…

We started with some delicious Pimento Cheese Croquettes…

Genifer had the Chef salad with grilled chicken…

And I ordered the chicken tenders with fries…

You got to pick your spice level. I chose the second mildest, Nashville Mild. It still had a bit of kick. Next time, I’m going to get the least spicy, Yella Belly. And your choice of fries or saratoga chips and ranch or blue cheese. Obviously, I got fries and ranch. Everything was outstanding. I can’t wait to come back to Fiery Hen for more tenders. Because I really love chicken tenders. And these tenders were awesome.Β πŸ˜€πŸ₯—πŸ”πŸŸβ€οΈ

Hello from Grey Midwest.

Good morning from Northside.

And when we were walking the dogs this morning, there were a bunch of geese up on the hill at the end of our street…

Good morning from Northside. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ¦†β€οΈ

It’s what’s for dinner.

We had Trader Joe’s Teriyaki Chicken for dinner tonight…

It’s really good but not nearly as good as Trader Joe’s Mandarin Orange Chicken. That one is my favorite. πŸ˜€πŸ₯‘πŸ”β€οΈ

Thanks, Timehop.

These popped up in my Timehop this morning…

Oh, the good old days of FC Cincinnati Orlando City B in the USL. I miss those days. And four years ago, we stopped for milkshakes on our way up to Michigan

Also, look how little Violette and Edgerton used to be. Thanks for the memories, Timehop. πŸ˜€πŸ¦•β€οΈ

Good evening from Northside.
