Back to Taft’s Brewpourium.

As Cincinnati restaurants begin to finally reopen, things like hand sanitizing stations, masked servers, and social distance–marked floors are all going to apparently be the new dining-out norm. On Friday, May 15, Ohio restaurants put many of these practices into place as they reopened their patios. And yesterday, they followed by opening their indoor dining room service too.

So after working on our front yard all day, we decided to treat ourselves and order pizza to eat AT Taft’s Brewpourium. The way we figured it, it was all pretty poetic…

The Brewpourium was the last restaurant we ate at before the pandemic closed everything for just over two long months. It was only fitting that the Brewpourium was the first place we ate when restaurants finally reopened…

We dropped off a whole bunch of old growlers for recycling…

I think we almost completely filled those first two boxes.

Please wait to be seated is also going to be the new normal…

We were shown to our table…

We made fancy pants reservations because we thought there would be a whole lot more people craving to eat AT the Brewpourium as much as we were…

We were wrong. But we didn’t care. We had the place all to ourselves last time. Why not have the place all to ourselves this time too?

Cheers to dining out again!

AND…

And, and, and… Taft’s Brewpourium had their incredible chicken wings back available. And I had been missing their wings so much. They weren’t available for online ordering during the shutdown. I almost ordered 12 wings. But there’s no way two people can eat 12 Brewpourium wings. No way. So we got 6 Cherrywood BBQ wings and a small white pizza with sausage. And it was amazing to be back out somewhere…

Their white pizza was seriously delicious…

After we finished eating, we just sat there and had a couple of beers and stared out their garage door windows that were wide open. And it was heavenly.

We’re really glad that all the restaurants, especially Taft’s Brewpourium are back open. πŸ˜€πŸ•πŸ”πŸΊβ€οΈ

We hope people are smart and use common sense when they’re out so that the inevitable second wave of COVID-19 is minimized as much as possible. But we weren’t not going to hold our breath. People are idiots.

It’s what’s for dinner.

Genifer made this amazing vegan caramelized mushroom pizza for dinner tonight…

It had a vegan garlic white sauce, with caramelized mushrooms, onions, and garlic. And it was really good. Genifer always finds the best recipes to make for dinner. πŸ˜€πŸ•β€οΈ

Domino’s Pizza party!

We drove up to Finneytown to pick up some delicious Domino’s Pizza for a rainy Monday evening Domino’s pizza party…

Domino’s has a pretty great contactless pickup system. When we arrived at the store, I checked in on Domino’s mobile app with their new Pie Pass. I went to the door, was buzzed into their lobby and a Domino’s employee placed our order on a shelf by the door. I grabbed our pizzas and we were on our way…

I really like Domino’s Pizza a lot. I think it’s good stuff. My favorite is their pan pizza…

But then again, I just really like pizza. πŸ˜€πŸ•β€οΈ

COVID-19 Carryout: Taft’s Brewpourium.

We stopped at Taft’s Brewpourium on our way home…

We ordered Taft’s weekend special again. Large pizza and a growler for just $27…

We added two salad this time too…

Taft’s has some of my favorite pizza and beers in all of Cincinnati. πŸ˜€πŸ•πŸ₯—❀️

NYPD Pizza party!

We had another NYPD Pizza party tonight…

We picked up a medium pepperoni and sausage pizza with boneless wings…

We love NYPD Pizza parties. Their pizza is delicious. πŸ˜€πŸ•πŸ”β€οΈ

Domino’s Pizza party!

This afternoon we drove out to West Chester to have a Dominos Pizza party with Geri, Cleve, Alyssa and Pippa…

It was good to see everyone. And Dominos Pizza is really good. πŸ˜€πŸ•β€οΈ

COVID-19 Carryout: Taft’s Brewpourium.

After working on our front yard this afternoon, we ran over to Taft’s Brewpourium to support one of Northside favorites…

On Saturdays and Sunday, Taft’s Brewpourium has a special for a large two-topping pizza and a growler for just $27

Our pizza and growler was ready and waiting for us…

Our growler was filler with one of our favorites, Taft’s Hazy Colada

We also picked up a six-pack of Taft’s new beer, Love in the Tub

It’s a peanut butter mocha pie stout. It was incredible! And proceeds went to Taft’s Team Relief Fund to help currently out of work employees…

Our large pepperoni and sausage pizza was incredible too…

And we ate the entire thing. The Brewpourium is one of our favorite places. And we’ve missed it so much. We’re going to have to get another New Haven style pizza again very, very soon. πŸ˜€πŸ•πŸ»β€οΈ

NYPD Pizza party!

WE SURVIVED ANOTHER WEEK! And that calls for another NYPD Pizza party

We got a medium pepperoni and banana pepper pizza with boneless wings…

We love NYPD Pizza parties. Their pizza is delicious. πŸ˜€πŸ•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

No one out pizzas the Hut.

We went to pick up a couple of Pizza Hut pizza this evening…

We got two mediums for $6 each…

I love Pizza Hut. Their pizzas are such good stuff. I just love their original pan crust. And the giant chocolate chip cookie was pretty good too…

And now we’re good on my Pizza Hut fix for a while. πŸ˜€πŸ•β€οΈ
