What is that, velvet?

This is beautiful. What is that, velvet

Genifer brought home red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese frosting. πŸ˜€πŸ§β€οΈ

Frisch’s Big Boy.

We had a couple of Frisch’s Big Boy gift cards just sitting around. So tonight, we stopped at Frisch’s on Central Parkway on the way home from work for dinner…

I had a hard time getting a picture of Genifer’s Buddy Boy…

I tried the Farmhouse Boy, which is just a Big Boy with bacon and a fried egg…

It was pretty good. Next time, I’m just going to get the regular Big Boy though. This little guy was on the cash register because it’s the first day of Autumn…

Thanks for a great dinner Big Boy.Β πŸ˜€πŸ”πŸ‚β€οΈ

I love grilled cheeses.

Genifer made amazing grilled cheeses for lunch and they were delicious! πŸ˜€πŸ₯ͺπŸ§€β€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

Octoberfest Zinzinnati 2019.

This weekend was Oktoberfest Zinzinnati 2019 weekend in downtown Cincinnati…

And this afternoon, we went downtown to check it out…

Last year, we didn’t go to Oktoberfest at all.

I tried this brat with curry sauce…

It was really good. Something a little bit different. Also a little bit different was the Halo from Busken Bakery…

A Halo is a warm Buskey glazed donut stuffed with ice cream and then hot pressed…

I got the Crown Jewel stuffed with Graeter’s Black Raspberry Chocolate Chip ice cream…

Ohmigosh. It was sooo good.

Next year, we’re taking advantage of this offer, if they do it again…

We made one slow meandering lap of the Oktoberfest. We had a couple of beers and had another brat or two in there. It was fun. Not nearly as much fun all the Oktoberfests as when we used to live downtown. But it was still pretty fun.

PROST! πŸ˜€πŸ‡©πŸ‡ͺ🍺🌭❀️

It’s what’s for dinner.

Genifer made Paleo Thai Meatballs for dinner tonight…

And they were delicious! Genifer always finds the best meals to make. πŸ˜€πŸ₯‘❀️

No one out pizzas The Hut.

We got some Pizza Hut pizzas for lunch today. I love Pizza Hut...

It’s so good. Other than that, we didn’t do much at all today. It was a pretty lazy Sunday. πŸ˜€πŸ•β€οΈ

Making the rounds in OtR.

This afternoon, we rode the Metro 17 bus down into Over-the-Rhine. We found a gift card that still had some money on it. So we headed to Taft’s Ale House for lunch. We’ve been to Taft’s Ale House since our friend Chris’s birthday. Anymore it seems we just always go to Taft’s BrewpouriumΒ which is just around the corner from our house over on Spring Grove. We didn’t realize just how long it had been. It’s been so long they’ve built a whole new condo community at Race and Fourteenth Streets…

Hello, beautiful. Taft’s Ale House is so pretty…

When we were crossing the street, we saw another one of those #CincyStreetBots

I’ve really been digging Taft’s Cold Boy

Genifer ordered Taft’s Chicken Avocado Salad

And Saratoga chips with ranch…

I ordered two of Taft’s tri-tip sliders…

With tots and beer cheese…

And Taft’s had bread pudding. I love bread pudding. So I had to order it…

Taft’s is soooo good. Everything was delicious. Especially the bread pudding.

From Taft’s, we walked down to Washington Park to check out the last half hour or so of September’s edition of The City Flea

There were a couple of really dope hats at this Flea…

From Washinton Park, we started walking in the direction of Findlay Market. We walked by a few murals that I hadn’t seen before…

TAG! You’re it…

Findlay Market…

And then we walked over to Sam Adams Cincy Taproom

They were hosting their Oktoberfest…

We hung out for a minute but it was all sort of winding down. So we headed back over to Race Street to check out the new Goose+Elder

 

I love the restaurant bathroom trend of using wild floral print wallpapers…

Hi. And the other bathroom…

We had a White Russian…

And we ordered just a couple of little small plates to share like their watermelon…

And their mac&cheese…

Terrific stuff. I can’t wait to come back to eat a full meal at Goose+Elder…

Then we hopped in an Uber and headed home. It was a great afternoon in OtR. πŸ˜€πŸ™οΈβ€οΈ

An evening out in Northside.

We went out to Northside Tavern this evening for a drink…

We love Northside Tavern. On the way home, we got slices from Kitchen Factory

Kitchen Factory has some outstanding slices.

We love Northside. πŸ˜€πŸ₯ƒπŸ•β€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
