It’s not Thursday.

Almost every Thursday on our way home from work, we stop at Queen City Radio for a beer and one of their amazing Whip Classic burgers. This week we couldn’t wait and decided to stop at QCR on a rainy Wednesday…

I’ve also been really liking their cheese coney lately. I think their Whip Classic is one of the absolute best burgers in all of Cincinnati.Β  πŸ˜€πŸ”πŸŸπŸŒ­β€οΈ

Sam Adams Taproom + Mexi-Q.

On our way home tonight, we stopped at the Sam Adams taproomΒ for happy hour…

And we noticed that the Mexi-Q Mexican BBQ food truck was out on Sam Adams patio tonight. We’ve never tried anything from Mexi-Q food truck before. Mexican meets BBQ? I had a feeling that this was going to be awesome…

Genifer ordered a Veggie Burrito Bowl…

And I ordered the Spicy Mexican Mac…

It was really good! You can’t beat delicious food stuffs from a food truck that you’ve never had the chance to try before. Especially when it’s Mexican and BBQ, two of my very favorite food groups. πŸ˜€πŸΊπŸŒ―β€οΈ

Saturday afternoon in OtR.

We got up this morning, walked the dogs and then hopped on our Metro 17 bus to head down into Over-the-Rhine. Today was the first spring edition of The City FleaΒ in OtR’s beautifulΒ Washington Park

Thornwoods! I used to work with Ben at Deskey. He and his wife started this pop-up and their stuff is really awesome!

I also love all the creatures fromΒ Happy Groundhog Studios…

I also used to work with James Billiter at LPK, who does some terrific stuff as well…

It was another great edition of The City Flea. Afterward, we headed over to get a drink from one of Genifer’s favorite OtR spots, Sundry and Vice.Β 

And today, S&V had homemade empanadas…

DANG! I love empanadas so much!

Genifer loves Sundry and Vice’s draft Old Fashioned…

Next, we walked up Vine Street and were drawn in by this sign in front ofΒ panino

We’ll have to stop back at panino for sammiches. I’ve heard nothing but good things.

It seems like there is always something “coming soon” in OtR…

And then we walked over to Mecca

And we had one of their Chunkers…

And some popcorn…

And then we hopped in an Uber and headed back home. It was a really fun afternoon wandering around Over-the-Rhine. πŸ˜€πŸ›οΈπŸ₯ƒπŸΏβ€οΈ

 

Whip burgers and 62,000 miles!

Our 2008 VW Jetta GLI about to hit 62,000 miles on the odometer this evening…

We stopped at Queen City RadioΒ for happy hour on the way home…

We shared a delicious whip burger and fries…

We also got one of their cheese coneys too…

I really like their cheese coneys. But I love their Whip Burgers. And on our way home, we hit 62,000 miles…

It was a pretty nice reward for getting back to work today. πŸ˜€πŸ”πŸŸπŸŒ­πŸš—β€οΈ

Queen City Radio.

I met Genifer at Queen City Radio this evening so we could celebrate Friday. πŸ˜€πŸΊβ€οΈ

3 Points Pop Up Power Hour.

We saw that today 3 Points Urban Brewery was doing another Pop Up Power Hour

3-Points has some really good beers…

And we got to order some more delicious CHX…

And boom! Minutes later, we had lotsa food…

I ordered another 4-piece banty with hush puppies…

Genifer got their mac&cheese…

We also had a bag of wavy fries and a bag of extra hush puppies. I love hush puppies. And we love when 3 Points does their Pop-Up Power Hours. Great beers at cheap prices and some of the most incredible chicken with hush puppies? Dang. What’s not to love about that? πŸ˜€πŸΊπŸ”πŸ€«πŸΆβ€οΈ

Sam Adams Taproom.

It was gorgeous this evening. We wanted to go sit out on a patio and have a beer.Β  So on the way home, we stopped at Sam Adams Taproom on Central Parkway…

We shared one of Sam Adams delicious giant pretzels…

Big Dogg’s BBQ was parked out on Sam Adams patio…

We also shared one of Big Dogg’s Pulled Pork Parfaits…

Awesome. What an incredible way to enjoy this beautiful evening. πŸ˜€πŸΊπŸ₯¨β€οΈ

Celebration!

After work, we stopped by Queen City Radio to celebrate my new job offer…

Celebrating a new job tastes a lot like Whip burgers…

I’ll be accepting the offer tomorrow morning. Thank you to my beautiful wife for helping me think this through. After talking about it, it turned out to be one of the least difficult decisions I’ve had to make. I’m very excited about this opportunity. πŸ˜€πŸ‘πŸΊπŸ”πŸŸβ€οΈ

Today was Genifer’s birthday!

Today was my beautiful wife’s birthday. Genifer’s mom sent these fun balloons and very pretty flowers. When we opened the door to take the dogs on a walk, the flowers were sitting on our porch. We opened the door and the balloons scared poor Mack half to death. He jumped a foot straight up in the air…

Thank you to my parents for their lovely card. And thank you to everyone for all the happy birthday wishes. This afternoon we went out in OtR to celebrate…

We started at Queen City Radio…

We stopped by Cobblestone…

And Longfellows…

We walked up to The Pony…

And then we walked over to the new Holiday Spirits…

It was a really fun evening. Happy birthday, Genifer. I love you so much! πŸ˜€πŸŽ‚πŸŽŠπŸΊβ€οΈ

Queen City Radio.

We love Queen City Radio. It’s quickly become one of our favorite OtR spots with their amazing Whip burgers, $3 High Life’s and $2 jello shots. It’s become our normal Thursday night place to stop after work. πŸ˜€πŸΊπŸ”πŸŸπŸ“»β€οΈ
