Pause for paws.

Genifer got Oscar this new super fuzzy dog bed…

I think he really likes it a lot. I went downstairs to refill my water and Mack was waiting for me at the top of our third floor stairs…

😀🐾❤️

A Biggby Butter Bear please.

After we were done at Trader Joe’s, we made a Sunday morning stop at Biggby Coffee for a Butter Bear and a breakfast sammich…

We really like Biggby Coffee. A lot. 😀🐻

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! 😀🇮🇪❤️

Sunday morning with Biggby Coffee.

When we were up in Michigan last Christmas, we got to try Biggby Coffee on our last day as we were getting on the road to head back to Cincinnati. And Biggby’s coffee drinks were really good. Genifer had their Caramel Marvel and I had their Butter Bear. I looooved the Butter Bear. It was a latte with caramel and butterscotch. I was pretty sure I found my new favorite coffee drink of all time because it combined two of my favorite things… butterscotch and bears. Biggby was a great place but we thought we’d wouldn’t bet their coffee again until we went back up north.

Then we noticed that there are a handful of Biggby Coffees scattered around the greater Cincinnati area. Unfortunately, none of those locations were really all that close to us, northern Kentucky or all the way out in Loveland. Until… a brand new Biggby Coffee just opened in Madisonville. And today, we check out the new Biggby and get some delicious Biggby coffee…

Biggby Coffee is delicious. We repeated the same order as we had up in Michigan, plus a cinnamon roll. And it was every bit as terrific as we remembered. We’re glad you’re just around the corner from us now Biggby! We will be back often! 😀☕️🐻❤️

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. 😀🍺👽❤️
