Pineapple IS a pizza topping.

Early this morning, we got up and ran over to the grocery…

Kroger had both pandas and trains today in the international aisle…

And Kroger always has the best balloons.

Afterward, we stopped at Mad Llama for some java whips…

When we got home, we took the dogs on their walk…

Good morning from Northside…

Later this afternoon, we went over to Taft’s Brewpourium for lunch…

Taft’s house salad is terrific…

Today, Taft’s had a special Hawaiian pizza…

Anyone who says pineapple isn’t a pizza topping clearly hasn’t had a Hawaiian pizza because they are delicious. We finished all of it while we watched more Olympics…

We used some more of our Taft’s gift card. And we still have a little bit of our gift card left. It’s been the gift that keeps on giving. We love Taft’s.

And good evening from Northside…

We had a great Sunday and a great weekend. 😀🌄🍕🍍🥗🐔❤️

Happy Father’s Day!

Happy Father’s Day to all the dad out there…

Good morning from Northside…

Today was the first day of summer. And there wasn’t any rain in the forecast today so we got to work on our backyard…

We dumped 15 bags of pea gravel and 15 bags of river rocks and 15 drainage rocks in our backyard this afternoon…

I think we’re going to need a lot more rocks.

We got cleaned up and headed over to Taft’s Brewpourium for lunch…

Today, Taft’s had a specialty cheesesteak pizza for Father’s Day…

And it was delicious! Everything they do is amazing.

Good evening from Northside…

Two of the best words in all of sports… GAME. SEVEN.

We’re so happy with how our backyard is progressing. And any day that involved Taft’s pizza is a really good day. This was a really good Sunday. 😀🌄🏡🍕🐾❤️

Sunday funday.

We ran over to the grocery store early this morning even before we walked the dogs…

And then we stopped for Biggby Coffee…

When we got home, we took the dogs on their walk…

Good morning from morning…

We headed down to The Banks to go to our fourth Reds baseball game of the season…

We got a DORA drink before heading into the ballpark…

Welcome to the Great American Ball park…

Our tickets were in our favorite section of the ballpark, The Fioptics District…

Apparently, Fountain Square has a new stage…

We walked up to Queen City Radio in OtR to see if they had their amazing Whip burgers. They did not. So we hopped in an Uber and stopped for a drink at Northside Tavern…

And then we came home to hang out in our backyard for a bit with our new little lights…

And while we were sitting out on our patio, we watched the Grizzlies win game one of their first round best of seven against the Utah Jazz.

It was a terrific Sunday. 😀🌄⚾️🍺💡❤️

It’s starting to look better.

Today got off to kind of an overcast start…

Good morning from Northside…

We ran back over to Lowe’s this morning…

And we stopped at Mad Llama for coffee and bagels…

And then we did some work in our yard. We finally finished staining our fence…

We planted these marigolds…

We hung our wind chimes…

We got a couple of plants for our hanging baskets…

We forgot to get more pea gravel for our side yard. But we got another planter…

Two more little planters…

And planted plants in them…

But we ran out of potting soil before we could get to our Yucca…

We planted more marigolds…

We moved our little ground coverings from the side yard to the front yard…

Hopefully, they do better over here…

And we got this little mini rose bush…

Next, we’ll have to work on our grass and try to figure out what to do with the path in the backyard and there has been talk of a couple of rock rivers. But it’s starting to look a little better in our backyard.

Good evening from Northside…

We sat on our patio and watched FC Cincinnati lose the home opener in their beautiful new stadium…

We ate frozen oven pizzas…

And called it a Sunday…

We had another really good day. 😀🌄🏡🌻⚽️❤️

We ❤️ Street City Pub.

This afternoon we stopped at the relatively new Street City Pub on Sixth Street…

We thought it would be packed with there being a home Bengals game today but oddly that wasn’t the case at all. We had the entire place to ourselves…

We just wanted to grab a little bite to eat. We shared some peach bourbon BBQ wings…

And these monster Irish potato skins…

They were awesome. And they were on the really cheap because Street City Pub has the rare Sunday happy hour. In fact every day, all is happy hour at Street City Pub in the bar & lounge. You know what else they have? Bread pudding…

I love bread pudding! And theirs was sooo good. We’ll definitely be back very soon to Street City Pub. They have stuff on their menu that I just have to try like their Irish Melt smash burger or their Fretboard battered cod. And I’m going to be needing more of their incredible bread pudding! 😀🇮🇪❤️

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. 😀🌮🍺❤️

Take me out to the ballgame.

This afternoon we went to the Sunday Reds game against the Colorado Rockies, or as we like to call it, baseball church. It was our second Reds game of the season after we were rained out on the second game of the season

We stopped to look at our Reds All-Star Legacy brick

Next time we come down to a Reds game, we’re going to have to bring a little scrubber and some water to clean our brick. But it was great to be back with our friends at Great American Ball Park…

It sure was a beautiful day for baseball…

Yasiel Puig…

He’s really quickly become one of my very favorite Reds. After his at-bat, we moved down to the gap…

And then down to the right-field line…

Someone had already lost one of the stickers from their Joey Votto Fathead…

And we moved out underneath the PNC Power Stacks in center field…

Yasiel Puig…

And back up to the gap…

And this one belongs to the Reds!

It was great to be back at the ballpark. 😀⚾️❤️

 

UPDATE: I was really bummed to find out this morning that @Reds traded away Yaisel Puig. I was hoping that he would be in Cincinnati for many, many seasons. It’s the first time a quite a while that I actually feel sad about a Reds player leaving Cincinnati after being traded. I’ll definitely miss Puig’s larger than life personality and his passion for the game. He made baseball in Cincinnati really fun again. ⚾️😥💪💯

UPDATE: Don’t even get me started on the Reds trading Scooter Gennett to the Giants for a player to be named later. 😭 Taken with Instagram.

#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 Funday.

This afternoon we walked down to Second Place for the second half of the Manchester City versus Liverpool match. there was a pretty good crowd on hand for the match…

Truth be told, we were at Second Place more for the cheeseburgers than the match…

They have some pretty amazing burgers at Second Place. The ManCity-Liverpool match ended in a 0-0 draw. We hung out to watch most of the Bengals game. And they actually won again. After the Bengals game, we walked to Higher Gravity. There weren’t very many people in Higher Gravity after the Bengals game this afternoon…

We watched the end of the Chiefs game with our friends Chris and Tayler. After they left, we met FC Cincinnati midfielder Corben Bone and his family. They stopped into Higher Gravity for a beer and a slice of pizza from Chameleon. We talked to them for a bit before they headed out. They live in Northside as well. Actually, they live just around the corner from us. And they were super nice. It was really neat to get to meet Corben Bone and get to talk soccer with him for a few minutes. We hope we run into them again sometime.

It was another really fun afternoon in Northside. 😀⚽️🍻❤️

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. 😀🍺🦖❤️
