Northside Sunday.

Today is the first day of September. This afternoon we walked to Django Western Taco for lunch. Django has really great chips and salsa. It’s some of Genifer’s favorite…

Genifer also had a carne asada taco…

I had a fried chicken taco…

And a jerk chicken quesadilla…

I love their jerk chicken quesadilla. It always reminds me of Jamaica. And lunch at Django is always so delicious. Afterward, we stopped at Higher Gravity for a couple of taster flights…

It was another really tasty Northside Sunday. 😀🌮🍺❤️

#LOVEtheCOV.

This afternoon we went across the Ohio River back into Kentucky over to Covington to finally check out Libby’s Southern Comfort for brunch

We had one of those Cherrywine Bourbon Slushes that we’ve heard so much about…

And they definitely lived up to the hype…

They were delicious. We shared some goetta hushpuppies…

Genifer had a house salad…

I had their oyster po’ boy…

Behind the bar, they had a whole bunch of really old bourbons…

Including one from the year I was born…

I wanted to ask how much a shot of it was, but didn’t get the chance. I can’t imagine that those were cheap. At all. Libby’s was really good. But it was also a bit on the expensive side for brunch. I’m glad we got to try it but I don’t think we’ll be rushing right back until I get a bonus or something.

After we were finished eating, we walked around the corner to Braxton Brewing

Last night was the grand opening of Braxton’s new rooftop patio…

The elevator wasn’t working so we had to take the stairs…

We were getting our steps today, that’s for sure…

Their rooftop patio os beautiful and so big with some great views…

I can’t believe I didn’t take a photo of downtown Cincinnati for up here. But oh well…
what are you going to do? Guess we’ll have to get one next time.

It’s always fun to check out other neighborhoods. We #LOVEtheCOV but we’re sticking with our Northside. 😀🥃🍺❤️

Sunday afternoon at Taft’s Brewpourium.

We went around the corner to 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. 😀🍕🐔❤️

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. 😀🥞❤️

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.  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. 😀🍺🦖❤️

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. 😀🥃🥪❤️

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. ⚽️🏆

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. 😀🌮❤️

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 I ordered this amazing dish…

Barbacoa Benedict on a house made jalapeño 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. 😀🌮❤️

Our Community Shield.

Another season of English Premier League soccer is almost upon us! In honor of Arsenal beating Chelsea on penalties in the annual 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! 😀⚽️🏆🥞❤️

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

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. 🙂
