Sunday afternoon at Taft’s Brewpourium.

We went around the corner toย Taft’s Brewpourium for lunch this afternoon. We had one of Taft’s delicious Bloody Mary’s…

And some delicious New Haven style pizza with Taft’s incredible BBQ wings…

We really love the Brewpourium. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ•๐Ÿ”โค๏ธ

Sunday morning.

We woke up early this morning to get over to Trader Joe’s before it got too crazy…

One of the things we’ve found at Trader Joe’s that we really like are these Bambas…

They are like cheese curls but instead of cheese, they’re peanut butter. Soo good. We got lotsa good stuff…

After we were done at Trader Joe’s, we stopped for breakfast at Wild Eggs

Their menu had lots of good sounding stuff but unfortunately, we aren’t huge breakfast people. We like breakfast just not a lot of it. Genifer got two scrambled eggs and some sausage links…

I ordered just a Belgian waffle…

Everything was really good. We’ll have to build up more of an appetite and head back to try some of the more elaborate offerings at Wild Eggs. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿฅžโค๏ธ

And we were back home by 10:00am.

Northside Sunday.

This afternoon, we stopped at Melt for a late Brunch…

Afterwards, we stopped by Urban Artifact

Urban Artifact’s Bewilderfest was Friday and Saturday. We wanted to see what was left on tap from their big celebration. Last year, they had a bunch of crazy beers…

We ordered a flight plus one…

And then we shared The Tumi and Lemon Fennel Salad

Urban Artifact made three barrel-aged variant bombers for their Bewilderfest: Beipiaosurus Boysenberry Sour, Dimetrodon Raspberry Sour and Stegosaurus Montmorency Cherry Sour

We didn’t try them. I bet they were all delicious but they were a little on the pricey side.ย  However, they had stickers of all the different dinosaurs from the labels, and they gave us an entire set of them for free…

And after I took the photo of my new dinosaurs stickers…

It was another fun Sunday in Northside.ย ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿบ๐Ÿฆ–โค๏ธ

Sunday brunch.

This afternoon we walked down to have brunch at Melt. We started with one of Melt’s terrific Bloody Marys…

And we each had a delicious Rachel with chips and salsa…

And we shared Melt’s cupcakes of the day. They had an Oreo cupcake…

And a green tea cupcake…

Melt is always outstanding. And it was great Sunday brunch.ย ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿฅƒ๐Ÿฅชโค๏ธ

Afterwards, we stopped at Higher Gravity to watch the Brasil versus Switzerland World Cup match. It was a pretty good match that ended in a 1-1 draw.ย โšฝ๏ธ๐Ÿ†

Brunch at Django Western Taco.

We walked to Django Western Taco for brunch this morning…

We grabbed a seat at the bar next to this guy…

We started with some chips and salsa…

Genifer ordered the Fritos Mac&Cheese…

I ordered the Northside Slam with eggs scrambled, bacon, chipotle roasted tomato, Texas toast and Chef Josh’s famous tater tot casserole…

It was a really delicious brunch. It’s so nice to be able to walk to places again.ย ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒฎโค๏ธ

Brunch at Django Western Taco.

This afternoon we walked over to Django Western Taco for brunch…

Genifer ordered one of Django’s amazing Jerk Chicken Quesadillas. We shared some tater tot casserole, chips and salsa and Iย ordered this amazing dish…

Barbacoa Benedict on a house made jalapeรฑo English muffin, poached eggs, spinach, salsa verde and queso fresco. And it was awesome! But we ordered way too much food. Again. We should have just shared the Barbacoa Benedict. It was such an incredible meal for brunch.ย ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒฎโค๏ธ

Our Community Shield.

Another season of English Premier League soccer is almost upon us! In honor of Arsenal beating Chelsea on penalties in the annualย FA Community Shield match

We made a whole bunch of little pancake community shields of our own…

Turns out, the community shield is delicious with plenty of syrup and a big helping of scrambled eggs!ย ๐Ÿ˜€โšฝ๏ธ๐Ÿ†๐Ÿฅžโค๏ธ

ps. English Premier League is back in full effect next weekend!ย 

Northside Sunday.

We were walking down Hamilton Avenue to brunch and saw the Dogfish Head x Crosley Cruiser Tour parked out in front of Shake It Records

We went to Django Western Taco for brunch…

We shared a breakfast burrito and tater tot casserole…

Afterwards, we went to Second Place to watch Michigan’s second round basketball game against Louisville. It also turns out the Liverpool versus Manchester City match was on…

Second Place put out quite the spread for the match…

It was a pretty amazing atmosphere for both of the games. And… it was super exciting to watch Michigan advance to the Sweet Sixteen. Also, next Saturday the second season of FC Cincinnati USL soccer kicks off in Charleston, South Carolina. And Second Place is having a watch party…

It was another really fun Sunday in Northside. ๐Ÿ™‚

Django.

We walked down to Django Western Taco for brunch again this morning…

Genifer had been craving guacamole for a minute now so she just ordered some guac Django style and some chips and salsa. I had Django’s amazing chicken biscuit…

It looked a bit different than the last time I had it but it was every bit as delicious. ๐Ÿ™‚

Sunday brunch.

We found ourselves up and moving relatively early again, so we decided to go to out to brunch for the third Sunday in a row. We walked down Hamilton Avenue back to Django Western Taco to check out their brunch offerings…

Django was offering items off both their brunch and lunch menu, which complicated matters a bit. Decisions, decisions, decisions…

We started with chips and salsa…

Genifer got a carnitas taco to go with her chips and salsa. I was going back and forth between the breakfast sandwich off the brunch menu and the chicken biscuit off the lunch menu. I decided to go with the chicken biscuit…

I chose wisely

I also saw one of the servers carrying the breakfast sandwich to a table. It looked delicious and it was massive. I’ll have to give it a try next time. I also had to order a side of Chef Josh’s famous tater tot casserole. It’s been waaay too long. And it was every bit as incredible as I remembered it…

Another incredible meal at Django, and another amazing brunch in Northside. We’re getting pretty used to living in the epicenter of brunch of Cincinnati. ๐Ÿ™‚
