Another rainy Saturday.

This morning we woke up early again to head over to Trader Joe’s before it got too crazy busy on Saturday. The later it gets, the busier it gets. We usually try to get to Trader Joe’s as close to 8am when it open as we can. This morning was our best time
so far. We pulled into their parking lot at 8:02am…

I just thought that little berry bunny was pretty cute. We didn’t get any frozen chocolate cover strawberry pieces though. I wonder if they would be good?

After we were done getting groceries at TJ’s, we headed over to get our Saturday morning coffee at Biggby

Biggby is our reward for getting up and getting groceries out of the way. We both got hot chocolates this morning. Biggby had more student artwork on display on their walls. I really liked the hills with the watercolor skies…

The owl and the elephant were really great too…

And if we had a daughter and named her Niala…

She would be Niala Fiala. Maybe Niala could be a middle name.

Later, we went over to Taft’s Brewpourium for another lunch with our gift cards we got for Christmas…

Taft’s had a new Hazelnut Latte Coffee Milk Stout on tap…

And it was really delicious. We watched the Michigan-Illinois game on our little tablet. We shared a small pizza with pepperoni, sausage and banana peppers…

We also shared some of Taft’s chicken wings…

We had six buffalo wings and six Cherrywood BBQ wings…

I think I really like the Cherrywood BBQ the best. But they’re both really good. And even though, Michigan lost. Again. It was a great lunch. We just love Taft’s pizza and wings.

Later, we started watching a series called 11.22.63 on Hulu. It’s pretty good so far. And even though it was another rainy day, it was another pretty good Saturday. πŸ˜€πŸŒ¨οΈβ€οΈ

A rainy Cincinnati Saturday.

It was really warm this morning with temperatures hovering in the mid-60s. But it was supposed to rain all day. And it pretty much did.

Before it started raining this morning we got up and ran over to Biggby for weekend morning coffee

We saw on Biggby’s Instagram that they had a BOGO offer just for today…

My new favorite go-to drink is Biggy’s Cocoa Caramella hot chocolate with a little bit of butterscotch added to it. It’s a great drink. And I really prefer hot chocolate to coffee. The caffeine makes me feel too jittery.

We watched some of the soccer this morning. My favorite club, Arsenal drew 1-1 with Crystal Palace and my other favorite club, Leicester City lost to Southampton 2-1. The last time Leicester and Southampton played, Leicester thumped the Saints 9-0.

We hung out upstairs and I worked on some work stuff until the dogs let us know they wanted to go on another dog walk…

Later when it was time for the other football, we took the Taft’s gift cards we received for Christmas around the corner to the Brewpourium for some pizza and wings. Taft’s had a peanut butter version of their Maverick chocolate porter on tap…

And it was really terrific. We usually get Taft’s Cherrywood BBQ wings but tonight we tried their buffalo wings. And they really good too. Pretty spicy but really good. So good, in fact, we had already eaten half of the wings before I remembered to take a photo…

And we shared a small pizza with pepperoni, sausage and banana peppers…

Taft’s pizzas are so good! When we were leaving, the Brewopurium was getting crazy…

Apparently, there was going to be a comedy show in the back of the Brewpourium. When we got home, we walked the dogs around the block again in the rain…

We watched a pretty dumb movie on Prime Video and then fell asleep while we watched the rest of the other football playoff game. It was a pretty good Saturday. It would have better if I didn’t have to work on a bunch of work stuff. πŸ˜€β˜•οΈπŸΎπŸ•πŸ”πŸŒ§οΈβ€οΈ

Are you ready for some football?

This afternoon, we drove over to Rookwood Commons to go to BJ’s Brewhouse for their awesome Sunday Happy Hour during the final Sunday of the NFL regular season…

We started with a couple of beers. Genifer likes their PM Porter and I usually go for their Tatonka Stout. We also had some mozzarella sticks…

We planned to order more food for lunch but the normally reliable bar service at BJs was just horrendous today. Apparently, the bartender was really hungover and didn’t feel like waiting on anybody. We couldn’t even manage to flag him down to refill our water. So we broke camp and went to Taft’s Brewpourium for pizza and wings…

The pizza and wings were awesome. And our Cowboys won big but the Eagles won too. So the Cowboys will be watching the playoffs with the rest of us. πŸ˜€πŸˆπŸΊπŸ§€πŸ•πŸ”β€οΈ

Ugly sweaters, baby yoda and pizza.

This afternoon we met Geri and CAP (Cleve-Alyssa-Pippa) at Taft’s Brewpourium for some pizza. Genifer organized a family Ugly Sweater party. So we all wore our best ugly sweaters. I wish I would have had someone take a photo of all of us together. But I didn’t. Thankfully, Genifer got these photos…

Taft’s was also hosting a pop-up Christmas mart. We got some delicious spicy pickles. There was a lot of cute stuff but nothing was cuter than this adorable baby Yoda…

Taft’s Brewpourium is always delicious and fun. πŸ˜€πŸ•πŸΊπŸ›οΈβ€οΈ

Taft’s Chicken Pesto.

After the football game, we stopped at Taft’s Brewpourium again. But this time instead of one of their delicious New Haven pizzas, I tried one of the Brewpourium’s Chicken Pesto sandwiches…

It was a really good sammich. Genifer had one of their terrific salads. And we shared some loaded tots…

We love Taft’s Brewpourium. πŸ˜€πŸ”πŸ₯—❀️

Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween from Northside! Oscar could sense something amiss in the air…

It was time to break out Oscar’s dinosaur costume. We were happy that he got to wear his adorable dinosaur costume for a little bit…

These pictures really don’t show it but Oscar gets so mad when he has to wear his Halloween costume. We got a few photos and then it came right off. He wears his dinosaur costume just long enough to get a photo every year…

We tinkered briefly with the idea of handing out candy tonight. But it was sooo cold and sooo rainy that we decided to go to Taft’s Brewpourium to eat delicious pizza and BBQ chicken wings…

Going to Taft’s Brewpourium on Halloween is kind of becoming a yearly tradition. We did the same exact thing last year to have a Taft’s Gourd to Death

Taft’s pizza is so delicious. Eating pizza was a much better idea than sitting out in the cold and rain, handing out candy to strangely dressed children. We sat there at Taft’s just stuffing our faces full of pizza and BBQ wings while we watched our birds-eye view of our street from our third-floor WyzeCam

Not surprisingly, there weren’t a ton of people out and about. Thanks for all the great memories, Timehop!Β πŸ˜€πŸ¦•πŸ¬πŸŽƒβ€οΈ

Sometimes you just want pizza and wings.

After Oktober Zinzinnati, we stopped at Taft’s Brewpourium for pizza and wings…

Sometimes, you just want some pizza and wings. πŸ˜€πŸ•πŸ“β€οΈ

USWNT at Taft’s Brewpourium.

This afternoon we went over to Taft’s Brewpourium to watch the USWNT’s World Cup group match against Chile…

USWNT won 3-0 and the pizza was as delicious as always. πŸ˜€βš½οΈπŸ†πŸ•β€οΈ

Sunday afternoon at Taft’s Brewpourium.

We went around the corner toΒ 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. πŸ˜€πŸ•πŸ”β€οΈ

Seen and noted at Brewporium.

We went over to Taft’s Brewpourium for lunch today. And as we were walking into the Brewporium, a train rolled by with a rather unusual cargo…

I guess I never really thought about how they move tanks around from place to place. It makes perfect sense after thinking about it for a little bit that they would move them with trains. It’s pretty interesting the things you just kind of stumble across.

Brewpourium started doing wings and they are terrific…

But for me, the star at Brewpourium is always going to be the pizza. It’s sooo good…

And I tried something new off of Taft’s brunch menu, sausage gravy knots…

They were really good. Genifer wasn’t feeling them but she’s not the biggest fan of breakfast stuff at non-breakfast times. I thought they were really good. I took the rest home with us and ate them for breakfast at work on Monday.

I love Taft’s Brewpourium. And we still have a little bit of money left on our gift card! It’s been the gift that keeps on giving. πŸ˜€πŸ”πŸ•β€οΈ
