Another super Saturday.

This afternoon I got my haircut with Katie Walters. She is literally the best

Then since we were already over on the east side, we got to have lunch at Taglio again

Genifer ordered the Finta…

We started with a side garden salad…

And there it is…

The main event…

Taglio’s deep-dish Detroit-style pizza. This time we ordered the Deluxe…

I love, love, love Taglio’s pizza. And we’re so excited. I don’t know if you’ve heard but Taglio is set to open a second location this spring on 12th Street in Over-the-Rhine. So sometime soonish,  we’ll be able to stop and get pizza whenever our hearts desire. After Taglio on our way back home, we stopped at Genifer’s favorite bar in the whole world, Sundry and Vice for a drink…

Sundry and Vice makes the best drinks…

It was another really super Saturday. 😀✂️🍕🥃❤️

Shopping in Over-the-Rhine.

After lunch at Sacred Beast, we did some shopping in OtR. We went to Mica 12v. They had this wall of clocks that was pretty mesmerizing to watch

Then we went to The Native One. Genifer loves this store…

I wanted to steal these adorable dog toys, and I would take the dog bed too…

We saw this guy on Vine Street…

We went to Elm&Iron

And then across the street to Elm&Iron Loft…

I think my dream job would be doing the Instagram for Elm&Iron. We stopped into Low Spark for a drink…

And then we walked down to Sundry and Vice for a drink before heading home…

We love their amazing cocktails. It was a really fun afternoon of shopping and hanging out in OtR. 😀🛍️🍹❤️

A Saturday afternoon in OtR.

This afternoon we caught an Uber down into Over-the-Rhine. Our friend Chris just had a birthday and his wife, Tayler was throwing him a bar-hopping surprise party that started at Rhinegeist

Decisions, decisions…

We got down to Rehinegeist a little bit early so we could finally check out their rooftop…

The Rhinegeist rooftop patio…

It’s super nice up there. But we went back downstairs to get some food. Rhinegiest’s taproom is on something like the third or fourth floor of the building. On the first floor is Sartre, the hottest restaurant & bar according to Zagat. Two things on a side note, the hottest restaurant and bar just sounds really uncomfortable and sweaty. And Zagat also said Steak ‘n Shake had the #1 rated milkshake. Steak ‘n Shake. So I think you should really take their recommendations with a grain of salt. But I digress, Sartre. In addition to having a restaurant and bar on the first floor, Sartre also has a kiosk in Rhinegeist’s taproom that I should have taken a photo of but didn’t. They take your order at the kiosk and Sartre sends your food up to the taproom in oversized banking tubes, and they call it tube food. That’s awesome! And I’m so mad that I didn’t take any photos of the kiosk or the tubes. But Genifer ordered a pretzel and I got a burger. And here it is…

And that was one really terrific burger…

So, sooo good. Rhinegeist really fills up on a Saturday afternoon…

On May 15th, National Dinosaur Day was Jurassic Geist at the Rhinegiest Taproom…

According to a tweet I saw in celebration of World Dinosaur Day, Cincy Museum Center teamed with Rhinegeist to display their 50-foot Galeamopus dinosaur in public for the first time! This YouTube video shows the process of putting together a 150-million-year-old dinosaur! We’ll definitely have to get back down to Rhinegeist to see the dinosaur and get some photos of tube food…

From Rhinegeist, we walked over to Taft’s Ale House

Then we swung through Sundry and Vice before heading to Mecca OtR

Chunkers!

From there, we made our way to 16-bit

And they had Slush Puppie drinks…

And then we stopped into Longfellow

And then it was onto Rhinehaus to watch the end of FC Cincinnati’s 4-1 loss away to Charlotte Independence. Everyone headed to 4EG’s newest bar, Rosedale. Rosedale was stupid packed. And somewhere between point A and point B, we got separated from our group. We tried to track them down but to no avail. So we hopped in an Uber and headed back to Northside where we stopped at Higher Gravity for a nightcap. It was a really fun afternoon and evening of bar hopping in Over-the-Rhine. 😀🍺🍻🥃🍸🍹❤️

 

The City Flea: July edition.

Today was July edition of The City Flea at Washington Park. It’s been a while since we’ve been to our last edition of The City Flea. With FC Cincinnati playing away to those stinkers down in Louisville, we didn’t have very much to do today. At all. So we drove down into Over-the-Rhine and parked the Jetta in the Town Center Garage behind Music Hall on Central Parkway for just $3…

By the way, the surface lot just on the other side of Central Parkway next to Music Hall was charging a whopping $10 to park. So if you think about it, we kinda started our Flea seven dollars ahead!  And speaking of Music Hall, it looked like they’ve been making a lot of progress on Music Hall’s rather extensive and elaborate renovations…

Someday I’m actually going to actually get one of these Ebbet’s Field ball caps

Afterwards, we stopped into Sundry and Vice for a drink…

It was a great to wander around The City Flea again. And the drinks were delicious! 😀
