Happy birthday, Terry!

We walked down to Higher Gravity this afternoon. Our friends Kathryn and Terry were celebrating Terry’s birthday today with an awesome space dinosaur party…

Happy birthday, Terry! We hope you had a great birthday! We’re glad we got to help you celebrate your special day. 😀🎂🎉❤️

Happy National Sausage Pizza Day!

Today was National Sausage Pizza Day. And I love sausage pizza. It’s my all-time very favorite pizza topping.  On our way home, we stopped at Taft’s Brewpourium

They had their delicious Gourd to Death Brown Ale on tap…

It’s sooo good. And speaking of good, the Brewpourium was running a special today. You could get a 16” sausage pizza AND a six pack available for just $16 to celebrate National Sausage Pizza Day! We ran into our friends Chris and Tayler. And played a few rounds of Last Call Trivia with them. Our team led after the first round and then it all kind of went downhill from there. We brought home our pizza and six pack…

Their pizza is so delicious! I couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate! 😀🍕❤️

The Hamilton.

After work, I met Genifer at Hoffner Park

And we walked down to The Hamilton for happy hour…

Genifer got here nails done earlier in the day…

And we shared the Northside Charcuterie board with a variety of meats, cheese, pickled vegetables and little crostini…

I love meat and cheese boards. And this one was really incredible. Stopping at The Hamilton was a great way to start the weekend. 😀🥃❤️

Happy National Drink Beer Day!

Today was National Drink Beer Day! We went to Taft’s Brewpourium to celebrate…

It was a delicious way to celebrate a kind of silly holiday. 😀🍺❤️

Das boot night.

Tonight just happened to be Das Boot night at Higher Gravity with hefeweizen from Weihenstephan, the world’s oldest brewery…

It was a pretty good hefe. And we got to take home our boots! We also got to try the new Braxton & Graeters Pumpkin Pie collaboration… 

It was really good. Very pumpkiny. But it’s still just a little bit too early for me to be drinking pumpkin beers. As soon as it starts to feel more like fall outside, it’s on. I also saw this beer from Streetside that sounded interesting but we didn’t try it…

Maybe next time. However, we did bring this guy home this guy…

it was another fun Thursday night at Higher Gravity in Northside. 😀🍺👢🎃🌞❤️

Northside Saturday.

We walked down to Melt for lunch again this afternoon…

Genifer had the Rachel. Again. In our opinion, it’s one of the best sammiches in all of Cincinnati, if not the whole world. I always get the Rachel as well. Sometimes I’ll get a Hoffner. But today, I finally broke down and tried the Pad Thai Wrap that I’ve been eyeballing for quite some time now…

It was really good. Melt makes incredible sammiches and mac & cheese too…

After lunch, we shared a whiskey sour made with egg whites. Delicious.

Then we stopped in Higher Gravity for a beer. Today, we tried Streetside’s OhEmG!

And oh my gosh, was that beer good. It was like a mouthful of raspberries without all the annoying little seeds. We also tried Streetside’s collaboration with Platform called Be A Lot Cooler If You Did too…

If was really good too but not nearly as good as the OhEmG! That was just… wow.

Northside is fun. We love it here. And we consider ourselves very lucky to have a wonderful home in this neighborhood. 😀🏡❤️

We love steakburgers & spicy beers.

This afternoon we went back to Freddy’s to have steakburgers for lunch…

And afterwards, we stopped Brink Brewing Company to try their Kickin’ Wing – Mango Habanero IPA

I got my beer in a collector local artist glass that we got to take home with us and we also ordered a little tin of bourbon BBQ peanuts…

The Kickin’ Wing – Mango Habanero IPA was outstanding. It had just the right amount of heat and the sweetness of the mango perfectly offset the bitterness of the hops. It was right up there as one of the best beers I think I’ve had. 😀🍔🍺❤️

We’re ready for some football.

We have some beers in our fridge for the start of football season. 😀🍺❤️

Urban Artifact Smoothie Bar.

This evening at Higher Gravity, they had an Urban Artifact Smoothie Bar…

You choose your Urban Artifact beer and then you choose from a variety of fruit juices to add to your beer to create your smoothie. We tried a Berry Banana Blast Smoothie…

And my favorite was the Strawberry Banana Smoothie…

Higher Gravity is always doing something different and fun. 😀🍺❤️

Bay Horse Cafe to celebrate 40 years.

This afternoon the office closed a little early to walk down to Bay Horse Cafe

We paused to celebrate our CEO and fearless leader, Doug Studer’s 40th-anniversary of work at Deskey…

Forty years with one company is a very momentous achievement…

SURPRISE!

It was a fun afternoon celebrating an incredible career achievement. And Bay Horse Cafe is a great little place. I can’t wait to head back soon for another beer and maybe grab some lunch from Bay Horse sometime soon. 😀🎂🍻❤️
