Ohhh… Epic tacos!

There were still snow flurries this morning…

And it was still cold and grey…

Good morning from Northside…

We ventured out to try something new this afternoon, Agave & Rye in Rookwood…

We started with some chips and guacamole…

Genifer loves guacamole…

And it was really good at Agave & Rye. We also started with the elotte…

And we each had an epic taco. Genifer had The Buddha: teriyaki 5-spice tofu, sticky rice, baby corn, water chestnuts, cilantro, green onion, carrots, red bell pepper, Shiitake mushrooms, crispy wontons, sweet thai chili sauce…

I love ground beef tacos. And they’re kind of hard to find out. Agave & Rye had two on their menu. So this time I ordered The Cousin of Vinnie: seasoned ground beef, tomato-vodka sauce, mac n cheese, white cheddar, tobacco onions and queso cushion in between the two taco shells…

Next time, I’ll try the other ground beef taco. Their tacos were amazing and huge. And they had a bunch of interesting sounding tacos on their menu.

Everything we ordered was delicious…

Agave & Rye had a whole bunch of arcade game that would have been fun to play…

But we’re still in the middle of a pandemic and I didn’t want to touch anything…

Agave & Rye was incredible. Everything was delicious. Their tacos were huuuuge. And we left so stuffed. I think we just found our new favorite taco shop now that Django Western Taco has moved out of Northside.

When we got home, we took the dogs out around the block…

And it was still cold…

Good evening from Northside…

We ended up taking a nap. And later, we watched the NFL playoff games…

I was happy to see Tom Brady win. I was sad to see Drew Brees lose. And I thought the refs jobbed the Browns. How did they miss this helmet-to-helmet hit? Most likely, it cost the Browns a touchdown and they would end up losing by 5 points. Next weekend, I’ll be cheering for Brady and the Bills. Because nothing would be worse than a State Farm Superb Owl with Aaron Rodgers and Patrick Mahomes. I don’t really care for either of them very much.

But anyway, we had a really great day with some epic tacos! ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„โ„๏ธ๐ŸŒฎ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿˆโค๏ธ

Running around on a Friday.

Before I started work this morning, we ran over to Whole Foods at Rookwood Commons in Hyde Park to get some groceries…

The grocery aisles at Whole Foods are one-way streets…

Someday, we’ll have to try Ninja Squirrel Sriracha…

And some of these Bearitos…

And this spicy chicken noodle soup…

Summer must be here! Because we found a mini-keg of Bell’s Oberon!

Whole Foods has some really good stuff! And speaking of good stuff on our way back home from Whole Foods, we stopped for some delicious Biggby Coffee

After I finished all my work for the day, we walked down to Higher Gravity for a beer…

Later, we walked the dogs around the block…

And we got to see this ScareCorona all lit up…

And finally, good evening from Northside…

Today was a good day. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿ›๏ธโ˜•๏ธ๐Ÿบ๐Ÿฆ โค๏ธ

A morning run around.

We had the day off work today for the MLK Jr Day holiday. This morning we got up early to run some errands. We planned on stopping to get coffee at College Hill Coffee Company in College Hill…

But they’re closed on Mondays. We picked up a refill of Mack’s allergy medicine from his vet down the street in College Hill. And then we headed over to Rookwood. We finally got coffee and hot chocolate from Joseph-Beth Booksellers. We had a couple of exchanges at J. Crew. And ran through Home goods where we saw an awesome Josh mug. You don’t see Josh mugs very often. This one will be on its way out to Boston as soon as I can find a little box to put it in…

After we were done running our errands, we had lunch at Rusty Bucket. It’s funny it seems like every time we’re over at Rookwood we end up eating lunch at Rusty Bucket…

It’s nothing fancy. It’s just really good. Genifer’s been on quite a quesadilla kick lately…

Making it two days in a row. But we shared the first one so… I had the same sammich I order every single time we go to Rusty Bucket, Chicken Finger BLT...

And we shared a piece of strawberry cheesecake for dessert…

I ate all the strawberries and whipped cream. Genifer ate the actual cheesecake.

Other than our errands, we didn’t do much else today. We walked the dogs and watched the Lakers-Celtics MLK Day NBA game and that was about it. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ”โค๏ธ

Happy Christmas Eve Eve!

Happy Christmas Eve Eve! We got up early this morning to get some Biggby Coffee

Genifer has been really liking their Peppermint Mocha Latte with almond milk and I’ve been all about the Cocoa Caramella hot chocolate with a shot of butterscotch. I also a big fan of Biggby’s sausage egg and cheese breakfast bagel sammich on an Asiago bagel. It’s really good stuff all the way around…

After Biggby, we went over to Rookwood Commons to do some last-minute shopping. We were mainly looking for some stuff for the dogs. But all I did was take photos of adorable stuff like these two characters…

How about caramel coffee flavoring in a penguin bottle wearing a winter hat?

Or a larger than life-sized plush penguin…

Oe a Triceratops sleeping bag…

I bought this sugar cookie ix because how cute is that little polar bear serving tray?

I like bears. After shopping, we had lunch at Rusty Bucket so I could get my Chicken Finger BLT. I really like Rusty Bucket and I love that chicken sammich. When we got home, we took the dogs on a walk and then we were pretty lazy…

It was a pretty good Christmas Eve Eve…

And it’s been a really good break so far. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŽ„๐ŸŽ…๐Ÿพโค๏ธ

Little monsters live here.

We saw this guy today at Home Goods…

Also, it’s August 29th and Halloween stuff is out in stores. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ‘น๐ŸŽƒโค๏ธ

Seen and noted.

Just a whale pillow on a bear bean bag…

Why do I have to be an adult? It’s so adorable and looks so comfy. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿณ๐Ÿปโค๏ธ

Home Goods in Rookwood.

This morning we went over to Home Goods at Rookwood Commons. I always find it interesting to wander around inside of Home Goods. They have all sorts of things you never know you needed for your home. I almost got this canvas for our office…

A Halloween mummy mug or a fox wearing glasses mug with legs…

These giraffes were odd but adorable…

As were these pot steam vents…

And the monster on this bag of popcorn…

Who wouldn’t want this huge three-pound bag of gummi bears…

After wandering around Home Goods, we walked to Rusty Bucket again for lunch. Genifer had a burger…

And I had their patty melt…

I love patty melts.ย ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ›๏ธ๐Ÿ”โค๏ธ

Hyde Perk & Haircuts.

This morning we both went to get our haircut with Katie Walters over in Hyde Park. But first, we stopped for coffee at Hyde Perk

Hyde Perk is such a cute place. And their coffee was really good too. Not as good as our Sidewinder in Northside but still really good. And then we got our haircuts. I used to get my haircut with Katie way back in the day when she was at Salon Beck downtown. Then she jumped to her own place in Hyde Park. I started going to Rooster’s downtown, and then most recently Great Clips just for a quick cut. After Katie cut my hair again today, it looked so nice. I had forgotten how good you feel after a really good haircut. And she always does a wonderful job with Genifer’s hair too. I think I’m just going to start going back to Katie to get my hair cut from now on even though she’s all the way over in Hyde Park.

After our haircuts, we stopped at Rusty Bucket for lunch. I don’t know why but whenever we find ourselves over around Rookwood Pavilion, we always end up eating at Rusty Bucket and it’s always really good. Genifer had a quesadilla and I had this chicken tender BLT sammich…

Great coffee, great haircut, great sammich.ย It was a pretty great day.ย ๐Ÿ˜€โ˜•๏ธโœ‚๏ธ๐Ÿ”โค๏ธ

Summer Hours: Rusty Bucket

Today’s Summer Hours were some rainy ones…

Genifer had a doctor’s appointment in Hyde Park and then weย planned to go to Island Frydaysย in Corryville but with all the rain we decided justย to get some lunch at Rusty Bucket in Rookwood instead…

We’ll go to Island Frydaysย on the next Summer Hours when it isn’t pouring down rain.
