Thursdays are for Whip Classics.

It must be Thursday. We stopped at Queen City Radio for a Whip Classic burger, chili dog and some fries…

I still think they have one of the best burgers, if not THE best burger in all of Cincinnati. Best fries too. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ”๐ŸŒญ๐ŸŸโค๏ธ

 

Seen and noted.

While we were waiting for the Streetcar, we could see the Skystar Wheel

We’ll have to go ride it sometime in the near future. We walked by a new mural work in progress. Probably for the upcoming BLINK Cincinnati festivities

We stopped at Holiday Spiritsย in Over-the-Rhine for a drink…

And saw the great Zoltar…

And we made it back to Northside Tavern to try to shoot a game of pool…

But all the tables were taken…

It was a really fun night. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿบโค๏ธ

Out and about in OtR.

After the Reds game, we rode the streetcar up into Over-the-Rhine to check out one of OtR’s newer bars called Homemakers

We just stayed for a drink but Homemakers seemed like a pretty relaxed place. Very, very retro. We also walked over to check out Longfellow’s Other Room

Longfellow’s Other Room is a rum bar with hundreds and hundreds of rums…

Longfellow’s Other Room tasted like a tropical vacation to me because I always drink rum when we’re on vacation. I could very easily see it becoming one of my favorite bars in OtR.

It seems like there’s always something new to check out in Over-the-Rhine. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿฅƒโค๏ธ

Sam Adams Taproom.

We stopped at Sam Adams Taproom after work this evening…

We really like Sam Adams Taproom. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿบโค๏ธ

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 Brewpouriumย 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. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ™๏ธโค๏ธ

Taglio OtR.

After work this evening, we stopped at the new OtR Taglio. We’ve been to the Taglio out in Columbia-Tusculum a handful of times, and we thought their Detroit-style deep-dish pizza was just terrific. We were really excited to try their new location at 12th and Walnut Streets in Over-the-Rhine.

Since it was happy hour, we ordered these monster mozzarella sticks…

Then it was time for the main event, we had ordered the Pepperoni and Hot Honey deep-dish Detroit-style pizza. And it finally arrived…

Their pizza is delicious! When we were getting ready to leave, we saw Faces in Places

We love Taglio’s pizza. It’s so dang good. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ•โค๏ธ

Locoba by Platform.

We took a detour on the way to work this morning to swing by Locoba by Platformย on Main Street in OtR to try their coffee. We’ve been to Locoba before for Platform’s beers. But we’ve never tried their coffee…

My caramel latte was so good…

And that makes it even more of a bummer that their coffees only come in one size. Not big enough. Also, another bummer is that they only serve breakfast sammiches on the weekends. So yeah. Bummer.ย ๐Ÿ˜€โ˜•๏ธโค๏ธ

 

Wodka Bar+Pins Rooftop Patio.

This afternoon we ventured down into Over-the-Rhine to check out the new Wodka Bar on Main Street with our friends, Chris and Tayler…

Wodka Bar is almost exclusively all craft vodka. We all shared a vodka flight…

Genifer also tried a pickle martini…

I tried their take on a White Russian called Russian Collusion. I would have ordered it just for the name alone…

It was really good but not as good as my favorite White Russian in all of Cincinnati over at Northside Distilling Company. We also shared some potato pierogis…

The pierogis were simply amazing. I was really digging the Eastern European artwork in the bathrooms…

And the ornate Sistine Chapel-esque ceiling in the bathroom as well…

Wodka Bar is a pretty neat place. From there, we walked down Main Street back to Pins Mechanical to check out their rooftop patio…

We played some rooftop patio giant Jenga…

And we played some rooftop patio Bocce ball…

Pins had this awesome fruit punch and Sprite mocktail that was delicious…

It was another really fun afternoon in OtR. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿธโค๏ธ

Sam Adams Taproom+The Italian Truck.

On the way home tonight, we stopped at the Sam Adams Taproom in Over-the-Rhine…

We shared one of Sam Adams famous and delicious giant pretzels…

But we didn’t realize The Italian Truck was out on Sam Adams patio…

We had to give them a try. We don’t get to try food trucks like we used to. So who knows when we’d get another chance. We ordered a Meatball Burrito, which was very good…

And Mozzarella Sticks because who doesn’t love Mozzarella Sticks?

And we took home a couple of cannoli for later…

It was all really good stuff. Speaking of stuffed, we definitely were.

And look at that gorgeous sky…

Dang. So pretty. It was a very tasty Friday evening! ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿบ๐Ÿฅจ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡นโค๏ธ

Thursdays are for sharing Whip burgers.

We really like sharing a Whip Classic and fries at QCR on Thursdays. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ”๐ŸŸโค๏ธ
