Happy Father’s Day.

Today was Father’s Day. We hope all the dads had a wonderful day. Genifer The dogs got me an awesome new BBQ utensil set and a super-cool new Reds t-shirt for Father’s Day. It was really very unexpected. She’s the best wife. They’re the best dogs.

Good morning from Northside…

One of the little bushes we planted in our front yard is full of little blossoms…

We ran over to Kroger this morning…

Someone bought the train that was full of jello cups in the International aisle. And now there is this jello cup filled panda bear…

Every time we go to Kroger in Oakley, this baby cart is in the cart corral…

After we were done at the grocery, we got the Audi washed at Mike’s Carwash…

And while we were over in that part of town, we had to stop for our weekend edition of Biggby Coffee

We were so mad. We forgot to bring our reusable straws today…

But our drinks were delicious as always!

Laters, we went over to Taft’s Brewpourium for pizza…

Taft’s was having a Father’s Day special…

A large short rib pizza, caesar salad, a loaf of cheesy bread, and a growler for just $45?

YES PLEASE! I like watching the world go by through Taft’s garage doors…

While we were waiting for our pizza to arrive at our table, we watched the monsoon that had just started dropping sheets of water out of nowhere…

And there it is! Our delicious pizza…

We just ate on the pizza. We took home the cheesy bread, caesar salad, our growler and about half of the pizza…

When we were getting ready to head out, I super long train started rolling by Taft’s too…

Trains are so cool. I could sit and watch the trains go by all day.

On our way home, we stopped at Second Place for a bourbon slush…

When we walked the dogs, the asphalt in the parking lot atop the hill at the end of our street was steaming…

Good evening from Northside…

And we ended our weekend by hanging out in our backyard…

It was a really good Sunday. πŸ˜€πŸ—“οΈβ€οΈ

Good morning from Northside.

It was another grey and rainy morning in Northside…

We saw two more Northside sidewalk snails on our morning dog walk but they weren’t being very sociable…

And we saw this one who was out and about and being very photogenic…

Snails are pretty neat. Good morning from Northside.πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸŒ§οΈπŸŒβ€οΈ

Hello from Northside.

It was still overcast, grey, and rainy this morning…

And it was still overcast, grey, and rainy this evening too…

Though the sun was trying to make an appearance…

Good morning and good evening from Northside. πŸ˜πŸŒ„πŸŒ§οΈβ˜οΈβ€οΈ

 

Good morning from Northside.

It looks like it’s going to be another grey Saturday…

Good morning from Northside. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„β€οΈ

Good evening from Northside.

It was a grey and rainy day. Good evening from Northside. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„β€οΈ

Spring flowers.

Thunderstorms.

A big storm blew through Cincinnati this evening…

I took this video out of our third-floor bathroom window…

It was a pretty crazy storm. πŸ˜¬β›ˆοΈβ€οΈ

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 grey day to be back at Grey.

It was a very grey and rainy day to be back downtown at Grey

But it was a wonderful really long thirteen-day holiday break. πŸ˜€πŸ—“οΈπŸŒ§οΈβ€οΈ

Grey Midwest’s Holiday Party.

Grey Midwest rented out all of 16-Bit Bar+Arcade in OtR for our Holiday Party

I didn’t take many photos at the holiday party at all. But it was really fun. I’m glad we went. There was all sorts of amazing little foods, lotsa drinks, some socializing and a whole bunch of button smashing. We beat the Final Fight video game. We played some Spy Hunter and a bunch of Rampage. Rampage was my jam back on Sega Genesis. I’m a little bummed I didn’t get to play any Dig Dug. A while back we were out with a friend of ours, and she had never heard of Mortal Kombat. Can you believe that? It’s crazy. There were like three Mortal Kombat games and even a couple of movies. Anyway, there was Mortal Kombat 3 right there…

We stayed at the party until it ended. After the party, we dodged the raindrops to walk around the corner to Longfellow’s Other Room for a couple of rum cocktails…

So. Much. Rum…

And then we hopped in an Uber and headed home. It turned out to be another pretty fun Friday night out in Over-the-Rhine. πŸ˜€πŸ‘ΎπŸ₯ƒβ€οΈ
