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

Crispy thin crust?!

This afternoon we picked up some delicious Domino’s pizza in Finneytown for lunch…

We tried Domino’s crispy thin crust pizza with pepperoni and banana peppers. And it was really good. I didn’t even know Domino’s had a crispy thin crust. Noted. it was so good we devoured it before we even took a photo of it. That’s how you know it had to be really good.Β πŸ˜€πŸ•β€οΈ

Sometimes you just want pizza and wings.

After Oktober Zinzinnati, we stopped at Taft’s Brewpourium for pizza and wings…

Sometimes, you just want some pizza and wings. πŸ˜€πŸ•πŸ“β€οΈ

No one out pizzas The Hut.

We got some Pizza Hut pizzas for lunch today. I love Pizza Hut...

It’s so good. Other than that, we didn’t do much at all today. It was a pretty lazy Sunday. πŸ˜€πŸ•β€οΈ

An evening out in Northside.

We went out to Northside Tavern this evening for a drink…

We love Northside Tavern. On the way home, we got slices from Kitchen Factory

Kitchen Factory has some outstanding slices.

We love Northside. πŸ˜€πŸ₯ƒπŸ•β€οΈ

FC Cincinnati versus Toronto FC.

This evening our FC Cincinnati played host to Michael Bradley’s Toronto FC. But first, we stopped at Mac’s Pizza Pub for their special $5 matchday pizza…

And I wanted a grilled cheeses with some waffle fries…

And when we were done eating, we walked over to Nippert Stadium to watch our FC|C play those hosers from up north…

Jozy Altidore didn’t play in this match. I’m not even sure if he traveled with the team to Cincinnati. And that’s fine. I’ve always thought that he wasΒ really overrated. We saw him play against the Crew in Columbus. And he was just as underwhelming in person as he is with the national team.

But even terribly overrated players can scorch you when they’re left totally unmarked just outside of the 18. Like when FC|C was playing Toronto up in Canadia.Β 

Here we go…

There were fans at Nippert who booed every time Michael Bradley touched the ball. I found it to be incredibly disrespectful with all he’s done on the USMNT. I think he’s one of the better, more consistent players that our national team has had lately…

And FC Cincinnati lost 5-1. It’s just been painful.

We grabbed an Uber back to Northside Tavern for a drink…

And then we came home and walked the dogs…

It was a pretty fun evening if you take out the 5-1 loss. πŸ˜€πŸ•πŸ₯ͺ⚽️🍺❀️

Taglio OtR.

After work this evening, we stopped at the new OtR Taglio. We’ve been to the Taglio out in Columbia-Tusculum a handful of times, and we thought their Detroit-style deep-dish pizza was just terrific. We were really excited to try their new location at 12th and Walnut Streets in Over-the-Rhine.

Since it was happy hour, we ordered these monster mozzarella sticks…

Then it was time for the main event, we had ordered the Pepperoni and Hot Honey deep-dish Detroit-style pizza. And it finally arrived…

Their pizza is delicious! When we were getting ready to leave, we saw Faces in Places

We love Taglio’s pizza. It’s so dang good. πŸ˜€πŸ•β€οΈ
