HAPPY NATIONAL PIZZA DAY!

Today was National Pizza Day! We celebrated by heading over to one our very favorite spots, Taft’s Brewpourium

My parents gave us a Taft’s gift card for Christmas…

We shared another one of their delicious New Haven-style apizzas…

And of course, loaded tots. We had to get loaded tots…

What a delicious way to celebrate such a fun holiday! 😀🍕🍺❤️

Oh. And a huge thanks to Taft’s for sending us over a couple of awesome Taft’s shirts…

Thanks Taft’s! You guys are pretty dang awesome! 😍

Another super Saturday.

This afternoon I got my haircut with Katie Walters. She is literally the best

Then since we were already over on the east side, we got to have lunch at Taglio again

Genifer ordered the Finta…

We started with a side garden salad…

And there it is…

The main event…

Taglio’s deep-dish Detroit-style pizza. This time we ordered the Deluxe…

I love, love, love Taglio’s pizza. And we’re so excited. I don’t know if you’ve heard but Taglio is set to open a second location this spring on 12th Street in Over-the-Rhine. So sometime soonish,  we’ll be able to stop and get pizza whenever our hearts desire. After Taglio on our way back home, we stopped at Genifer’s favorite bar in the whole world, Sundry and Vice for a drink…

Sundry and Vice makes the best drinks…

It was another really super Saturday. 😀✂️🍕🥃❤️

Saturday fun.

This afternoon we walked over to Urban Artifact to go try their brand new Pink Guava Parfait Beer on draft in their taproom…

And it was delicious! While we were at Urban Artifact, we also had another delicious Wildfire Pizza Kitchen pizza for lunch. We shared a small Margherita pizza and some of their amazing cheese bread…

Wildfire’s pizza is so dang good. Later, we tagged along with our friends Chris and Tayler who were going over to their soon-to-be new neighborhood, Pleasant Ridge to check out Nine Giant Brewery & Kitchen

Nine Giant had some really good beers. I liked their Conjure Me Coffee Milk Stout

I was diggin’ this Nine Giant trucker cap…

And they have some really neat artwork on their walls. I like all the monsters…

It was another really fun Saturday. 😀🍕🍺❤️

Taft’s Brewpourium.

This evening we stopped at Taft’s Brewpourium for a flight

And one of their delicious new haven style apizzas and some loaded tots…

We love Taft’s Brewpourium. It’s always delicious. 😀🍕🍻❤️

Let’s GO X!

We had tickets for this afternoon’s Xavier Men’s basketball game against the Oakland Golden Grizzlies. We bought our tickets a while back after discovering how silly cheap you could get tickets for events on  StubHub. Unfortunately, you can’t purchase good weather. It was pouring down rain this morning on our way to the game…

I made it through yet another metal detector without my hips set off the alarms…

It’s been a while since we’ve been to a Xavier game

I don’t remember the player introductions being so cool

We figured out there’s a place to stand up behind the seats. We like standing…

Xavier was leading at halftime…

It was kind of an ugly game. But Xavier won 73-63! That’s three in a row for X!

On the way out of Cintas Center, they gave everyone 20% off coupons at the Xavier team shop. We looked in the shop inside Cintas Center but they didn’t have any sizes…

So we walked down to the All For One Shop. And they had everything Xavier…

We both got Xavier sweatshirts to wear to our next Xavier game. 😀✖️🏀❤️

On our way home, we stopped at Taft’s Brewpourium for a beer, some loaded tots and a pepperoni&sausage apizza…

It was a really fun Saturday! 😀🍕❤️

Urban Artifact & Wildfire Pizza.

Oscar was watching us leave from our front window this afternoon…

“Hey, hey. Where are you going?” Sorry, buddy. We were heading out to walk over to have a beer at one of our favorite spots, Urban Artifact

And we wanted to finally check out their new wood-fired pizza kitchen located just across the courtyard called Wildfire Pizza Kitchen

We’ve been drooling over their photos on Instagram for a while now. We were really excited to try it. We each ordered a personal-sized pizza and cheese bread…

Cheese bread…

My Dad’s Favorite meat-za…

And Genifer’s Super Hawaiian…

Their pizza is outstanding! We’re always happy to have another great pizza place in the neighborhood. Northside is quickly becoming the best pizza neighborhood in Cincinnati. And we love it! 😀🍺🍕❤️

Happy National Cheese Pizza Day!

Happy National Cheese Pizza Day! We devoured this cheese pizza from NYPD. It was delicious. Taken with Instagram. 😀🍕😍❤️

Today was a long day.

We did so very little this evening it wasn’t even funny. We made little-frozen pizzas in the oven and headed off to bed…

It wasn’t the brightest idea to go back to work the day after getting back from Michigan. We were both pretty tired and it made for a really long day. But I had forgotten how delicious those little-frozen pizzas were. I think I lived on those little $1 pizzas all through college. 😀🍕❤️

Taglio Pizza.

After my physical therapy, we stopped in Columbia Tusculum for lunch at Taglio Pizza. We first heard about Taglio through their Instagram. They are becoming quite well known for their deep dish Detroit style pizza. We weren’t aware there was such a thing as Detroit style pizza. But the photos looked amazing, we had to try this incredible looking pizza for ourselves…

We ordered the deep dish Spicy Italian…

And look at that beauty. It’s a work of art. A delicious, looking work of eatable art…

Taglio’s deep dish pizza is every bit as delicious as it looks. I can’t wait until we have the opportunity to eat it again. The best part of Taglio’s Detroit deep dish pizza is it only comes in one size with eight slice which means there were still plenty of leftovers for us to eat later. 😀🍕😍❤️

Happy Easter!

HAPPY EASTER! We had a very nice Easter Sunday. Genifer made me this really sweet little Easter basket…

We got a wonderful Easter card from JJVE with some terrific artwork from Violette…

Here’s a photo Jeannette sent of Violette with her artwork and the bunny she drew us…

And here’s a photo Josh sent of Violette with her bunny. It was the bunny we sent her from Happy Groundhog Studio

Later, Genifer’s mom came over and my parents came down from Michigan for the night on their way out east to do some antiquing and they brought some delicious Pizza King pizzas down with them…

YUM! Pizza King pizza is sooo good. My mom also brought down a very delicious cherry cobbler. It was a very nice surprise to get to spend Easter evening with my parents and Genifer’s mom. It turned out to be a really nice Easter. 😀🐰🐣❤️

On a personal note, I need to take more photos when people come over or when we do things with other people. I need to make more of a conscious effort to make sure I take at least one photo of everyone together. I really need to do a better job of that. I just 😀📷❤️
