An Olympic Saturday.

Good morning from Northside…

We mowed our backyard weeds grass this morning…

Genifer went out with a couple of her friends in Over-the-Rhine this afternoon. I dropped her off at Queen City Radio…

I hung out with dogs and watched Olympics all day. It was pretty awesome. And then we went on a walk…

Good evening from Northside…

When I went down into OtR to pick up Genifer, there was this crazy car behind me…

We watched the Minnesota United match draw their match against Vancouver. And then we watched more of the Olympics. We’ve really been enjoying the heck out of the games. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„β€οΈ

#JJVECincy2021 Sunday.

Our morning started off with knocking around the soccer ball in our backyard…

And we took the dogs on their morning walk…

Violette and Edgerton took turns walking Captain Oskey…

Good morning from Northside…

We walked to Sidewinder to get breakfast and coffees…

And we walked Up Hamilton Avenue to eat our breakfast at Jergen’s Park..

And we got to play at another playground…

After playing in the park, we walked home through Parker Woods…

After a bit, we headed down into Over-the-Rhine…

We parked at Washington Park and walked to Taft’s Ale House for lunch…

Lunch was delicious. We walked back down to Washington Park…

So the kids could play in the fountains…

And they got to play on the playgrounds…

Then we walked over to get rolled ice cream…

The ice cream was delicious! Thanks Simply Rolled!

We had a really great time down in OtR…

On our way back to Northside, we drove by the new soccer stadium in the West End…

When we got home, we took the dogs around the block. Violette and Edgerton took turns walking Captain Oskey again…

Good eveinng from Northside…

Violette wanted to rake the stones in our backyard…

We fired up the grill and made some burgers and hot dogs…

When we were at Taft’s Ale House, Surf’s Up was coming on one of the TVs in the bar. The kids became enamored with the movie. So this evening, we watched it in our backyard…

It was a pretty good movie. The kids really seemed to like it.

It was another really wonderful day with JJVE. We had the most amazing Sunday. It was the best day again. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ‘πŸ˜πŸ₯°β€οΈ

Timehopping.

Six years ago was the infamous Power Stack fire game at GABP…

Milan was snug as a bug in a rug…

And do you remember Fork Heart Knife that used to be up on Main Street in OtR?

Their frittata and those spiced potatoes were just amazing…

Thanks for the memories, Timehop. πŸ˜€πŸ¦•βšΎοΈβ€οΈ

Taglio birthday pizza.

After we were down with work this evening, we drove down into Over-the-Rhine to get some carry-out birthday pizza and salads for Genifer’s birthday from Taglio OtR

Genifer had been wanting a buffalo chicken pizza for a while now. And we got a garden salad and a caesar salad…

The salads were huge…

And the buffalo chicken pizza was delicious…

Taglio’s pizza is delicious. πŸ˜€πŸ₯—πŸ•πŸŽ‰β€οΈ

Sam Adams Taproom.

We couldn’t decide wanted we wanted to do after work for Valentine’s Day. We had planned to go to Django Western Taco after work. But we weren’t really very hungry. We wanted to stop somewhere. So we just stopped at Sam Adams Taproom for a beer and a pretzel. We really like Sam Adams. They have great beers, giant pretzels and it’s right on our way home…

I had their Mountain Berry light ale aged on raspberries and blackberries…

Genifer had Samuel Adams Oaked Vanilla Porter. Both beers were really good…

Sam Adams used to just have their giant pretzels. Then they added chips & salsa. And now they’ve added a few more menu items…

Genifer still got their giant pretzel…

The giant pretzel is always so good and so giant. I tried one of their Cincinnati Coneys…

Cincinnati chili and queso mixed together on top of a hot dog? Yes, please!

Their coney was outstanding. It was really good. The beer cheese queso and chili combo was delicious. We had one of one Sam Adams I Like Porters. And then we headed for home. We really like Sam Adams Taproom. πŸ˜€πŸΊπŸ₯¨πŸŒ­β€οΈ

Grey Midwest’s Holiday Party.

Grey Midwest rented out all of 16-Bit Bar+Arcade in OtR for our Holiday Party

I didn’t take many photos at the holiday party at all. But it was really fun. I’m glad we went. There was all sorts of amazing little foods, lotsa drinks, some socializing and a whole bunch of button smashing. We beat the Final Fight video game. We played some Spy Hunter and a bunch of Rampage. Rampage was my jam back on Sega Genesis. I’m a little bummed I didn’t get to play any Dig Dug. A while back we were out with a friend of ours, and she had never heard of Mortal Kombat. Can you believe that? It’s crazy. There were like three Mortal Kombat games and even a couple of movies. Anyway, there was Mortal Kombat 3 right there…

We stayed at the party until it ended. After the party, we dodged the raindrops to walk around the corner to Longfellow’s Other Room for a couple of rum cocktails…

So. Much. Rum…

And then we hopped in an Uber and headed home. It turned out to be another pretty fun Friday night out in Over-the-Rhine. πŸ˜€πŸ‘ΎπŸ₯ƒβ€οΈ

BrewDog Cincinnati.

After getting in some morning holiday shopping, this afternoon we headed downtown to Over-the-Rhine’s next-door neighbor, Pendleton to check out the brand new BrewDog Cincinnati taproom

In April 2007, in a godforsaken industrial estate in northeast Scotland, BrewDog came howling into the world. BrewDog has two breweries. The original is in Aberdeen, Scotland and the other is in Columbus, Ohio. The Cincinnati taproom just opened…

Two hours south of our American HQ we opened an 8,500 sq ft beer mecca. With 24 taps of craft beer glory, a mezzanine chock full of games, and a beer school space for everything beer geekery, BrewDog Cincinnati is THE place to experience craft beer in The Queen City.

We’ve tried a few of the BrewDog beers before here and there. BrewDog was a guest at the HIgher Gravity Meet the Brewer on two different occasions

The inside is huuuuge…

We started with a Choco-Libre and a Jet Black Heart

The Choco Libre is a Mexican-spiced hot chocolate infused imperial stout. And Jet Black Heart is a 4.7% milk stout, loaded with oatmeal. Both beers were really outstanding!

We shared their $6 Tuesday burger special…

Terrific burger. I don’t know how someone could take down one of these monsters without any help. And the fries were great too. After finishing, we also tried one of their beer slushies (it was kinda weird), and an outstanding Renegade chocolate and peanut butter buckeye white stout…

And Genifer bought me one share of stock in BrewDog

Now we get 5% off our tab and a whole bunch of other cool benefits. Before we left, I went up to take a peek at BrewDog’s upstairs game area…

BrewDog Beer School…

It’s such an awesome space…

I have a feeling we’ll be coming back to BrewDog a lot. After all, we own part of the bar! πŸ˜€πŸΊπŸΆπŸ”πŸŸβ€οΈ

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. πŸ˜€πŸ”πŸŒ­πŸŸβ€οΈ

 

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 SpiritsΒ 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. πŸ˜€πŸΊβ€οΈ

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. πŸ˜€πŸ₯ƒβ€οΈ
