A different Thursday pizza party.

It was very pretty all day today. It was really cold. But the sky was pretty all day…

Good morning from Northside…

We broke camp a little early this afternoon to go run and pick up pizza for our Thursday night pizza party…

But tonight, we got Domino’s for our pizza party, and we were pretty excited…

Ohmigosh. It was so good. We love pizza. We hadn’t had Dominos in a bit. Soooo good.

After we stuffed our faces, we took the dogs out around the block…

Good evening from Northside…

And good evening from our backyard…

Oscar has been working on his hedgehog’s nose for a while now. He chews on it almost every night and it’s getting comically long…

He loves that dang hedgehog. It’s one of his favorite toys.

And speaking of favorites, I love the comic book, Usagi Yojimbo. I lost track of it for a while. But recently, I rediscovered just how amazing the graphic novels are. Stan Sakai, the artist who created the series, is one of my favorite artists. I learned so many things about art and drawing from his his comics. I saw on Instagram that Usagi Yojimbo is coming to Netflix

This has the potential to be so amazing if it stays true to the original. I’m very excited. Almost as excited as I was for our pizza tonight. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„β„οΈπŸ•πŸΎπŸ“Ίβ€οΈ

Thursdays are for pizza!

Good morning from Northside…

Mack and Oscar hung out with my in our studio office for most of the day…

We listened to Arsenal draw with Crystal Palace this afternoon. And then we went out on our evening walk around the block…

Good evening from Northside…

Thursdays are for NYPD Pizza parties

NYPD Pizza is so delicious. And so inexpensive. We love Thursday pizza nights. Genifer made little chocolate chip banana bread puddings for dessert…

They were really good. It was another delicious Thursday.

Tonight, we watched the first two episodes of Collateral: Limited Series on Netflix.

Today was a beautiful day.

Good morning from Northside…

It was such a beautiful morning. Time for Legos…

Day ten of my Lego City Advent Calendar…

We made delicious boiler sammiches for lunch today. Mine was Cajun chicken breast with American cheese on Hawaiian bread with Backyard BBQ Kettle Chips…

Both of us don’t have to work tomorrow. It took a bit longer to finish up my projects for the week but I finally got them wrapped up. And then we took the dogs on their walk around the block…

The sky was just so pretty all day today. And it was almost 60ΒΊ today. I guess that’s what happens when it’s not grey and overcast and the sun actually comes out to play.

Tonight, we watched some of the Thursday night football game as the Rams hammered the once great New England Patriots.

When we go upstairs for the night, Mack will come upstairs with us and hang out for a little bit. But then he’ll wander off to sleep downstairs in our second-floor studio office at night…

Most of the time he’ll come upstairs in the middle of the night or really early in the morning. During the day, he wanders off to sleep in our bedroom on the third-floor. He hangs out with us in the afternoon and evening and then he sleeps most of the night in the second-floor studio. We think he just likes sleeping undisturbed without us moving around and waking him up and stuff. He’s so good and doesn’t cause any mischief so we just let him sleep where he wants. But he’s an oddball. And that’s like we like him so much. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸ₯ͺπŸΎπŸ“ΊπŸˆβ€οΈ

20th Annual Crab Carnival.

On our way home this evening, we stopped at Washington Platform at the corner of Court and Elm Streets in downtown Cincinnati…

As it turns out, Washington Platform was having their 20th annual Crab Carnival…

Genifer ordered the Findlay Market salad. And it was a delicious looking salad…

She doesn’t really like seafood all that much. I ordered the crab cake muffuletta…

The sammich was pretty good. But it was a lot of bread. I ended up just eating the crab cake and leaving the bread. And then it was pretty awesome.

And they had live jazz in the dining room…

We’ll have to come back to check out Washington Platform’s other events…

And we’ll definitely have to come back for half-price burger night Wednesdays…

Washington Platform was pretty good. We’ll definitely be back soon. πŸ˜€πŸ₯—πŸ¦€β€οΈ

Thursdays are for Whip Classics.

It must be Thursday. We stopped at Queen City Radio for a Whip Classic burger, chili dog and some fries…

I still think they have one of the best burgers, if not THE best burger in all of Cincinnati. Best fries too. πŸ˜€πŸ”πŸŒ­πŸŸβ€οΈ

 

More Fiery Hen.

After work tonight, we stopped back at Fiery Hen on Court Street…

Genifer ordered their burger of the day…

And of course, I had Fiery Hen’s chicken tenders. Again.

This time we got to try Fiery Hen’s banana pudding…

Genifer said her burger was just okay. My chicken tenders were awesome. Again. And the banana pudding was terrific. Banana pudding is sooo good. πŸ˜€πŸ”πŸŸπŸ”πŸŒβ€οΈ

 

 

Pumpkin painting at Higher Gravity.

After we finished eating at Gaslight Bar & Grill, we stopped at Higher Gravity for some pumpkin painting and Halloween beers…

My pumpkin already had a spider web painted on the back…

We got a taster flight of Halloween beers: Platform S’mores Yammy,Β Fat Head Spooky Tooth Imperial Pumpkin Ale,Β Southern Tier Rum Barrel-Aged Pumking, and Maine Beer Company’s Mean Old Tom

Genfier’s awesome pumpkin creation…

And my pumpkin creation…

The rum barrel-aged Pumking was out of this world…

It was really fun painting pumpkins. And they look great on our front porch…

Gaslight Bar & Grill.

After work this evening, we stopped in Clifton’s Gaslight District

There were some really cool sidewalk artworks along Ludlow Avenue…

And we walked by parallel parking spots that had been converted into an awesome sociable parklet space

The recently renovated Gaslight Bar & Grill

It opened back in January in the old Ludlow Avenue library branch in Clifton…

And it has Clifton’s first rooftop bar…

Genifer ordered a veggie burger without the bun…

And I ordered the shrimp po’boy…

Everything was really delicious. Gaslight’s fries were outstanding. We wish we would have come to Gaslight sooner in the summer because their outdoor patio is really pretty amazing. We can’t wait to hang out here more next summer! πŸ˜€πŸ”πŸ€πŸŸβ€οΈ

Sam Adams Taproom.

We stopped at Sam Adams Taproom after work this evening…

We really like Sam Adams Taproom. πŸ˜€πŸΊβ€οΈ

Fiery Hen.

Because it’s Thursday, we stopped to check out the relatively new, Fiery Hen,Β it’s just a couple of doors down from Queen City Exchange on Court Street…

Genifer tried one of their cocktails but I don’t remember which one…

I had a $2 Miller High Life. It’s the champagne of beers…

We started with some delicious Pimento Cheese Croquettes…

Genifer had the Chef salad with grilled chicken…

And I ordered the chicken tenders with fries…

You got to pick your spice level. I chose the second mildest, Nashville Mild. It still had a bit of kick. Next time, I’m going to get the least spicy, Yella Belly. And your choice of fries or saratoga chips and ranch or blue cheese. Obviously, I got fries and ranch. Everything was outstanding. I can’t wait to come back to Fiery Hen for more tenders. Because I really love chicken tenders. And these tenders were awesome.Β πŸ˜€πŸ₯—πŸ”πŸŸβ€οΈ
