NYPD Pizza party!

Tonight, we had another NYPD Pizza party

We’ve been all about their Station House pizza lately. And NYPD’s boneless wings are always delicious. I think an NYPD Pizza party is a terrific way to start the long three-day holiday weekend. πŸ˜€πŸ•β€οΈ

A rainy Cincinnati Saturday.

It was really warm this morning with temperatures hovering in the mid-60s. But it was supposed to rain all day. And it pretty much did.

Before it started raining this morning we got up and ran over to Biggby for weekend morning coffee

We saw on Biggby’s Instagram that they had a BOGO offer just for today…

My new favorite go-to drink is Biggy’s Cocoa Caramella hot chocolate with a little bit of butterscotch added to it. It’s a great drink. And I really prefer hot chocolate to coffee. The caffeine makes me feel too jittery.

We watched some of the soccer this morning. My favorite club, Arsenal drew 1-1 with Crystal Palace and my other favorite club, Leicester City lost to Southampton 2-1. The last time Leicester and Southampton played, Leicester thumped the Saints 9-0.

We hung out upstairs and I worked on some work stuff until the dogs let us know they wanted to go on another dog walk…

Later when it was time for the other football, we took the Taft’s gift cards we received for Christmas around the corner to the Brewpourium for some pizza and wings. Taft’s had a peanut butter version of their Maverick chocolate porter on tap…

And it was really terrific. We usually get Taft’s Cherrywood BBQ wings but tonight we tried their buffalo wings. And they really good too. Pretty spicy but really good. So good, in fact, we had already eaten half of the wings before I remembered to take a photo…

And we shared a small pizza with pepperoni, sausage and banana peppers…

Taft’s pizzas are so good! When we were leaving, the Brewopurium was getting crazy…

Apparently, there was going to be a comedy show in the back of the Brewpourium. When we got home, we walked the dogs around the block again in the rain…

We watched a pretty dumb movie on Prime Video and then fell asleep while we watched the rest of the other football playoff game. It was a pretty good Saturday. It would have better if I didn’t have to work on a bunch of work stuff. πŸ˜€β˜•οΈπŸΎπŸ•πŸ”πŸŒ§οΈβ€οΈ

NYPD Pizza party!

This evening we ran around the corner to NYPD Pizza to pick up pizza and wings…

And that means, NYPD PIZZA PARTY!

We had a Station House Pizza loaded with pepperoni, sausage, mushrooms, onions and green peppers. And we had some boneless wings smothered in BBQ/buffalo mild…

YUM! It was so good. We really like pizza parties. πŸ˜€πŸ•πŸ”β€οΈ

Are you ready for some football?

This afternoon, we drove over to Rookwood Commons to go to BJ’s Brewhouse for their awesome Sunday Happy Hour during the final Sunday of the NFL regular season…

We started with a couple of beers. Genifer likes their PM Porter and I usually go for their Tatonka Stout. We also had some mozzarella sticks…

We planned to order more food for lunch but the normally reliable bar service at BJs was just horrendous today. Apparently, the bartender was really hungover and didn’t feel like waiting on anybody. We couldn’t even manage to flag him down to refill our water. So we broke camp and went to Taft’s Brewpourium for pizza and wings…

The pizza and wings were awesome. And our Cowboys won big but the Eagles won too. So the Cowboys will be watching the playoffs with the rest of us. πŸ˜€πŸˆπŸΊπŸ§€πŸ•πŸ”β€οΈ

PIZZA PARTY!

We had another pizza party from Papa John’s to celebrate the start of our super long holiday break

It was really good. But our pizza took over an hour to arrive. I don’t know that we’ll be ordering from Papa John’s for our pizza parties again anytime soon. πŸ˜€πŸ•β€οΈ

PIZZA PARTY!

It was back to work today after being off yesterday. And we had an NYPD Pizza party tonight! On the way home from work, we stopped to grab some carry-out pizzas from NYPD. We each got a little personal pizza because Genifer wanted just cheese and I wanted some toppings tonight…

The toppings are hidden under all that delicious cheese. NYPD pizza sure is delicious!

PIZZA PARTY!

We had a pizza party tonight! A large Papa Johns cheese pizza and cheesy bread…

I love pizza party nights! πŸ˜€πŸ•β€οΈ

Pizza King pizza for the win!

This afternoon we hung out at home with my parents, ate delicious Pizza King pizza

And watched Michigan Hoops compete in the Battle 4 Atlantis basketball tournament in the Bahamas. Yesterday, unranked Michigan knocked-off #6, North Carolina…

Oddly enough, Michigan beat North Carolina one year ago to the day. On November 28th 2019, the 7th-ranked Wolverines stormed back from an early double-digit deficit to beat the No. 11 Tar Heels 84-67 Wednesday in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge. Michigan forward Ignas Brazdeikis led all scorers with 24 points for the Wolverines.

Today, Michigan was playing #8, Gonzaga in the championship game…

Who has it better than us?! GO BLUE! πŸ˜€γ€½οΈπŸ€πŸ†β€οΈ

It was better than I remember.

We ordered a couple of Papa John’s pizza for dinner tonight…

Papa John’s pizza was a lot better than I remember it. I would actually order Papa Johns again sometime in the near future. And they’re one of the few places that will deliver to our house. πŸ˜€πŸ•β€οΈ

On a related note, have you seen Papa John’s new TV commercials?

It sounds like they got Colonel Sanders for Kentucky Fried Chicken to do the voice over.
It was just a really odd choice of voice talent. When I first saw these spots, my first thought was, “KFC is making pizza now??!” Odd.

Maybe next time we should get flavored crust. They make it look pretty good.

Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween from Northside! Oscar could sense something amiss in the air…

It was time to break out Oscar’s dinosaur costume. We were happy that he got to wear his adorable dinosaur costume for a little bit…

These pictures really don’t show it but Oscar gets so mad when he has to wear his Halloween costume. We got a few photos and then it came right off. He wears his dinosaur costume just long enough to get a photo every year…

We tinkered briefly with the idea of handing out candy tonight. But it was sooo cold and sooo rainy that we decided to go to Taft’s Brewpourium to eat delicious pizza and BBQ chicken wings…

Going to Taft’s Brewpourium on Halloween is kind of becoming a yearly tradition. We did the same exact thing last year to have a Taft’s Gourd to Death

Taft’s pizza is so delicious. Eating pizza was a much better idea than sitting out in the cold and rain, handing out candy to strangely dressed children. We sat there at Taft’s just stuffing our faces full of pizza and BBQ wings while we watched our birds-eye view of our street from our third-floor WyzeCam

Not surprisingly, there weren’t a ton of people out and about. Thanks for all the great memories, Timehop!Β πŸ˜€πŸ¦•πŸ¬πŸŽƒβ€οΈ
