Shopping in Over-the-Rhine.

After lunch at Sacred Beast, we did some shopping in OtR. We went to Mica 12v. They had this wall of clocks that was pretty mesmerizing to watch

Then we went to The Native One. Genifer loves this store…

I wanted to steal these adorable dog toys, and I would take the dog bed too…

We saw this guy on Vine Street…

We went to Elm&Iron

And then across the street to Elm&Iron Loft…

I think my dream job would be doing the Instagram for Elm&Iron. We stopped into Low Spark for a drink…

And then we walked down to Sundry and Vice for a drink before heading home…

We love their amazing cocktails. It was a really fun afternoon of shopping and hanging out in OtR. 😀🛍️🍹❤️

Lunch at Sacred Beast.

We went down into Over-the-Rhine for some holiday shopping this afternoon but first, we stopped at new diner spot, Sacred Beast for lunch…

It’s really nice inside…

We ordered a bunch of food…

I ordered the crispy chicken with dipping sauces…

We shared a side order of fries…

Genifer ordered a single cheeseburger…

And apparently, the single cheeseburger has TWO patties! The double cheeseburger has three patties. That’s crazy! Oh, and we also added a side order of onion rings…

Holy geez. Everything was so delicious and awesome! We ate every last bite. And we were so stuffed. We can’t wait to come back for more at Sacred Beast. 😀🐐❤️

Seen and noted.

There’s a Christmas tree on the roof of Queen City Radio on Central Parkway…

How festive and fun is that? I’m also digging the light in the conifers that line their patio. 😀🎄❤️

Good evening.

I got a couple of photos of tonight’s sunset with my Polaroid CUBE on the bus ride home as the Metro 17 bus started it’s climb up the hill on West Clifton Avenue…

It was a really pretty one. 😀🌇❤️

Rhinegeist Charitable Suds.

Genifer picked me up from work this evening and we went up to Rhinegeist in Over-the-Rhine for Charitable Suds…

Every Wednesday for 5-8pm, Rhinegeist donates $1 from every draft beer sold in their taproom to a different charitable organization. And they call it Charitable Suds. This week’s organization was Greater Cincinnati Behavioral Health Services were Genifer works in Human Resources…

So we thought we would do our part and have a beer… you know, for charity…

Every time I’ve been in Rhinegeist, I’m always so impressed by the space…

 

Genifer’s co-workers are really nice,and it was a really good time. 😀🍺🍻❤️

FC Cincinnati x Cincy Shirts.

I’ll be the first to admit it. I love rally towels. Like, really love rally towels. I don’t know how or where it all started, probably with the Reds NLDS game 3 back in 2010 and then it got cemented with the Reds NLDS game 3 in 2012. I started carrying one of those Reds rally towels with me everywhere I went. And now I just really love rally towels. I seek them out. And track them down. No matter where I go, I always seem to have at least one, stuffed in a pocket. More than likely, there’s another one stuffed in my bag. I have at least one for almost every major sports team I support. But I didn’t have an FC Cincinnati rally towel. So imagine how excited I was to see this post from Cincy Shirts this morning…

Thankfully, I had Summer Hours this afternoon. When Genifer picked me up from work, we beat feet up Main Street into Over-the-Rhine to Cincy Shirts OtR location…

But it turns out somehow the FC|C rally towels were only at the Cincy Shirts Hyde Park location. So much to Genifer’s chagrin, we were back in the car heading to Hyde Park. Long story very short, we both got a new FC Cincinnati t-shirt from Cincy Shirts

And now we finally have FC|C rally towels…

Once again, all is good in the world. 😀⚽️❤️

The City Flea: July edition.

Today was July edition of The City Flea at Washington Park. It’s been a while since we’ve been to our last edition of The City Flea. With FC Cincinnati playing away to those stinkers down in Louisville, we didn’t have very much to do today. At all. So we drove down into Over-the-Rhine and parked the Jetta in the Town Center Garage behind Music Hall on Central Parkway for just $3…

By the way, the surface lot just on the other side of Central Parkway next to Music Hall was charging a whopping $10 to park. So if you think about it, we kinda started our Flea seven dollars ahead!  And speaking of Music Hall, it looked like they’ve been making a lot of progress on Music Hall’s rather extensive and elaborate renovations…

Someday I’m actually going to actually get one of these Ebbet’s Field ball caps

Afterwards, we stopped into Sundry and Vice for a drink…

It was a great to wander around The City Flea again. And the drinks were delicious! 😀

Queen City Radio.

After work this evening, I walked up to 12th and Central Parkway to meet Genifer and our realtor, JJ for a drink at the relatively new, Queen City Radio

Another new really fun place! I love how more and more of the bars and restaurants that are opening here and there are including large outdoor patio spaces. 🙂

Mecca OtR.

After Ciderfest, we walked over to 15th and Walnut Streets to check out a pretty new artsy bar callled Mecca OtR. Mecca is owned by the same people that Cheapside

Mecca has great murals for days. And every restroom has custom artwork…

And I completely forgot to take a photo of Mecca’s incredible outdoor patio…

Mecca has these great, inventive drinks called Chuggers with one of those little airline liquor bottles inverted in a can of San Pellegrino…

Such a great idea…

Great place. I’m glad we finally got to check out Mecca. 🙂
