The biggest bar night of the year.

Tonight, we went out tonight to have a beer at Higher Gravity

We went to Melt for a delicious dinner. And onto Urban Artifact for another beer…

It was a really fun biggest bar night of the year. 😀🍺🍻🦃❤️

Operation Plowshare.

We stopped by our favorite brewery, Urban Artifact this evening after work…

Yesterday, they tapped their Operation Plowshare, a Blackberry Midwest Fruit Tart. It tastes just like the filling from a jelly doughnut. Remember last fall when they gave you the options of having it with or without a sprinkle-covered rim? There weren’t any sprinkles this year but it was every bit as delicious…

We’re going to have to stop back and pick up a couple of four packs…

Great stuff. We love Urban Artifact and their amazing beers. 😀🍩🎃❤️

Higher Gravity: Meet the Brewery.

This evening we walked over to Urban Artifact to try their Vanilla Chariot Cherry Gose variant and their new Owler Tart Vanilla Brown

Turns out, they had just run out of the Vanilla Chariot the night before. But the Owler was very, very good. On the way home, we stopped by Higher Gravity for another of their Thursday night Meet the Brewery events featuring Covington’s Braxton Brewing Company and Braxton Labs in Newport. Higher Gravity was featuring four Braxton beers on tap…

They had Braxton’s Blown Gasket Porter and three beers from their Braxton Labs: New England IPA #002, Sweet Potato Casserole and Belgian Blonde with Chamomile. After the taster, we had a Braxton Blown Gasket so we could take home the sweet Braxton Pint Glass and some sweet Braxton shades…

Just another fun Thursday evening in Northside. 😀🍺❤️

Northside Wednesday.

After work this evening, we walked through the Northside Farmer’s Market

We stopped at Urban Artifact to try their latest creation called Love Letter Peach Midwest Tart, have another taste of their Anaglyph Banana Midwest Fruit Tart and try their new Spicy Chariot Tart Cherry Gose

Then we stopped a taco at Django Western Taco because it was National Taco Day

And then we headed home…

It was a pretty good Wednesday in Northside! 😀👨‍🌾🍺🌮❤️

Northside Saturday.

At the end of our street, all these cones were having a cone party…

We walked through an open house of a new home for sale around the corner from us…

It was nice. But it was waaaay out of our budget. We like our house just fine, thank you very much. We kept walking over to Boswell’s Alley for lunch…

We shared some Bos Bites…

And we shared a Super Grill…

YUM! The fire trucks were pulling out just after we passed by…

We stopped for a beer at Urban Artifact

We had an Anaglyph Midwest Fruit Tart made with real bananas and a Tricorne Tart Pawpaw New England IPA that they collaborated to make with Sam Adams…

And we got to hang out with our new friends, Tayler and Chris…

It was another fun Saturday in Northside. 😀🍺🍻❤️

Northside Saturday.

This morning we had a little bit of living room soccer action…

Before we visited the playgrounds up the hill at Parker Woods Montessori…

We walked down Hamilton Avenue to have a delicious lunch at Melt…

From there we headed across the street to Hoffner Park…

To play on another cool playground…

With swings!

These two like playgrounds, swings and apparently, giant pine cones…

And then we headed over to check out Urban Artifact…

They were right in the middle of their Bewilderfest…

They weren’t doing flights during Bewilderfest so we just got one of each beer…

And we continued our tour of Northside by stopping into Second Place…

We made our way home for some cornhole in the backyard…

And fired up the grill…

We made a bunch of burgers and hotdogs…

We had so much fun wandering around Northside that it wore us out…

What a fun day with the whole family! Tomorrow, we’re going to the zoo! 😀❤️

Higher Gravity Bar and Bottle Shop.

Today was Higher Gravity Bar and Bottle Shop‘s official grand opening…

We stopped in to check it out a couple of Friday’s ago and stopped in for the second half of FC|C’s big US Open Cup win over Miami FC

It looked like we were going to be on the local evening news…

And we were right. They great doing guest flights of beers for $5 from local breweries. This was the flight from our beloved Urban Artifact including UA’s Fire Iron, Keypunch and Flash Lamp. Somehow, we missed Fire Iron at Urban Artifact. It was outstanding…

Chef Josh from Django Western Taco was out back slinging tacos…

And we shared a steak quesadilla!

Higher Gravity is a wonderful addition to our Northside neighborhood. 😀🍺🍻❤️

Fourth of July.

Today was the annual Northside Fourth of July Parade. Last year, we skipped the parade because it was raining. And we were trying to get situated after just moving into our house. The weather this year wasmaybe a little on the warm side but pretty perfect. The parade was scheduled to step off from way up Hamilton Avenue at noon. So we walked down Pullan Avenue to try to stake out a spot streetside about fifteen minutes beforehand…

While we stood there waiting for our first glimpse of the parade, more and more people continued to line the sides of the street…

There was still no sign of the parade coming down the hill as we continued to bake in the hot noon sun…

So we started walking down Hamilton Avenue towards Hoffner Park…

Instead of standing with the masses, we walked down to Chase Avenue and proceeded over Northside Yacht Club. NSYC was having a Fourth of July USA beer & burger party with a Rhinegeist tap takeover

Genifer had the Burrito Mexican Lager. I had the Maracuja Gose with Passionfruit. And we shared in the legendary NSYC Burger awesomeness…

That was a really great burger! Afterwards, we walked over to Urban Artifact

And then we stopped back through Northside Rock n’ Roll Carnival for a little bit…

When we got home, we ordered a delicious NYPD Stationhouse pizza…

When we got upstairs, we could hear fireworks all around us but we couldn’t see any…

But then we started to see some from our bedroom window…

We had a great Fourth of July enjoying all things Northside. Maybe we’ll watch the parade next year. 😀🍔🍺🍻🎸🍕🇺🇸

Northside Sunday.

We went to Django Western Taco for a late brunch today. We shared the buttermilk biscuit with redeye chorizo gravy and fried eye, Chef Josh’s famous tater tot casserole and a side of bacon topped with ancho chile honey…

And it was delicious. As always. Also, Chef Josh said that Django Western Taco has some really big news coming very soon so we can’t wait for his big announcement!  After we stuffed our faces at Django, we walked over to Urban Artifact for a beer or two…

We had the very last pint of the Palmistry and a couple of Finn’s…

We love Northside so much. 😀 ❤️

Finns in our backyard.

We sat out on our back patio and enjoyed a couple of Finn’s from Urban Artifact…

It was a really beautiful evening. 🙂
