No one out pizzas The Hut.

We got some Pizza Hut pizzas for lunch today. I love Pizza Hut...

It’s so good. Other than that, we didn’t do much at all today. It was a pretty lazy 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 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.

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. 😀🌮❤️

Northside Sunday.

This afternoon we walked down Hamilton Avenue to met Randy, Allison and Genifer’s nephews at Arcade Legacy Bar Edition...

It’s usually only open to adults. But on Sundays, they open it up to allows kids as well…

I’ve never heard of Mad Tree’s Dreamsicle before but it’s pretty good stuff…

We ordered some snacks. I didn’t expect the nachos to be so huge…

After playing video games until our fingers hurt, we walked over to Boswell’s Alley to get a bite to eat out on their patio…

I love that Boswell’s always has a riddle up on their blackboard…

It was another great Sunday in Northside. 😀🍺👽❤️

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. 🙂

Another grey Sunday.

Today, we went over to The Westside to celebrate Genifer’s brother’s birthday. Later, we took Oscar for a walk up the hill at the end of our street. It was another pretty grey and rainy Sunday today…

🙂

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. 🙂

Sunday brunch.

After we walked Oscar this morning, we walked down Hamilton Avenue to get coffee from Collective Espresso Northside. It’s a little bit hard to find. We walked right by it a few weekend’s ago until Genifer finally noticed the sign on the sidewalk…

Genifer ordered a regular latte…

And I ordered a honey latte…

I’m sooo in love with WordPlay’s Urban Legends Institute stained glass sign hanging over Hamilton Avenue…

We saw another Yurko tag on the sidewalk…

With coffee in hand, we stopped at Melt Eclectic Cafe to pick-up some brunch to take home with us…

We brought home a couple of Melt’s Breakfast Burritos. And they were really amazing…

It was a great way to start our Sunday. Later, we took Oscar a longer walk. It was so pretty outside…

After that, we puttered a bit around the house but mostly just laid around and watched football for the rest of the day. It was a pretty relaxing Sunday. 🙂
