Octoberfest Zinzinnati 2019.

This weekend was Oktoberfest Zinzinnati 2019 weekend in downtown Cincinnati…

And this afternoon, we went downtown to check it out…

Last year, we didn’t go to Oktoberfest at all.

I tried this brat with curry sauce…

It was really good. Something a little bit different. Also a little bit different was the Halo from Busken Bakery…

A Halo is a warm Buskey glazed donut stuffed with ice cream and then hot pressed…

I got the Crown Jewel stuffed with Graeter’s Black Raspberry Chocolate Chip ice cream…

Ohmigosh. It was sooo good.

Next year, we’re taking advantage of this offer, if they do it again…

We made one slow meandering lap of the Oktoberfest. We had a couple of beers and had another brat or two in there. It was fun. Not nearly as much fun all the Oktoberfests as when we used to live downtown. But it was still pretty fun.

PROST! 😀🇩🇪🍺🌭❤️

No Oktoberfest?

For the very first time ever, Genifer and I didn’t go to Oktoberfest Zinzinnati…

We kind of felt an obligation to go to Oktoberfest because we’ve gone for at least a little bit of every Oktoberfest since we began dating back in 2011. But this year, it was rainy so we just stayed at home. And it was wonderful. PROST! 😀🇩🇪🍺❤️

Downtown details.

I ran some errands around downtown this afternoon…

They’re turning the site of the old Dennison Hotel into a super cute little park…

I’m going to have to go back to check it out when they are actually finished with it. But it was more than I expected from this space. I thought it was just going to be more surface parking lot. I was going to ride the streetcar Cincinnati Connector or one of those silly little scooters down to The Banks. But it was so nice outside and I can actually walk again without pain, so I just walked down to Great American Ball Park…

I was getting us some Reds tickets for the final week of their season…

From GABP, I walked down Freedom Way and noted Joella’s Hot Chicken. I’m going to have to come back down to The Banks to check that out for lunch one day…

I continued on to stop to admire the new 150-foot tall SkyStar observation wheel at The Banks. It’s only a temporary addition to downtown. It’s there to celebrate the 10-year anniversary of The Banks. We’ll have to make sure to ride it before December 2nd…

They were getting The Banks ready for Oktoberfest Zinzinnati…

And then I rode the streetcar back to work. Somebody’s gotta ride it now and then…

And then it was back to work…

It’s fun to take a little bit of time out of your day to run around downtown Cincinnati to see the sites especially the new additions. 😀🏙️❤️

It’s a sign.

It’s almost that time of year again. 😀🇩🇪🍺❤️

Oktoberfest Zinzinnati 2017.

After the Reds game, we walked through Oktoberfest Zinzinnati 2017

Samuel Adams and Urban Artifact collaborated on a beer for Oktoberfest…

And it was outstanding…

The Klaberheads were getting ready to perform as we were walking through…

We’ve been to every Oktoberfest since we began dating back in 2011. 😀🥨🇩🇪❤️

Oktoberfest Zinzinnati 2016!

It’s that time of year again. Time for the largest Oktoberfest in all of America, Oktoberfest Zinzinnati. One of the most fun weekend’s of the entire year in downtown Cincinnati…

We used to love Oktoberfest weekend when we lived downtown. This was the first year it hasn’t been right outside our front door. It was also the first year of the new location for Oktoberfest Zinzinnati down in The Banks on Second and Third Streets to accommodate Cincinnati’s new streetcar CB Connector. After today’s Reds game, we wandered over to see what the new look Oktoberfest Zinzinnati actually looked like…

We found the Klaberheads…

GOETTA & CHEDDA!

Oktoberfest might have moved a couple blocks south but it’s still the same big fun. And being able to walk out your front door to Oktoberfest might be one of the few things I actually miss about living downtown. Thank goodness for the 17 bus and Uber. 🙂
