Topgolf West Chester.

Early this afternoon, we drove out to the suburbs to check out Topgolf West Chester

I haven’t swung a golf club in a really long time…

So this should be interesting…

Topgolf is pretty amazing and has a full-service bar and restaurant…

We shared a hitting bay with Cleve and Alyssa…

They have a whole bunch of different games you can play. We just played their signature Topgolf game where you score points by hitting your golf ball into any target assigned using Topgolf’s microchip technology…

The more accurate your shot and the farther the distance, the more points you earn…

It was really fun. During a game, each person got to hit 20 balls. While we were playing, we also ate lunch. We had some cheese curds…

Genifer had this turkey wrap…

And I had this short rib grilled cheeses…

Our lunch was delicious. And Topgolf is so much funIt’s a little on the pricey side but still a whole bunch of fun. We’ll definitely be back very soon for more Topgolf. 😀⛳️❤️

Grainworks Brewing Company.

This afternoon we drove all the way out to the suburbs of West Chester to check out Grainworks Brewing Company. It’s kind of tucked away in a little industrial park right by Voice of America Park

Genifer had Grainworks My Blue Heaven blueberry fruited beer and I had the Black & Blue, which is their oatmeal stout mixed with the My Blue Heaven…

Both beers were really good…

There is so much really good beer in Cincinnati. And Grainworks is no exception. It’s another awesome Cincinnati brewery. 🙁⚙️🍺❤️

UPDATE: When I was looking for Grainworks beers in Untappd, I noticed that they have a Peanut Butter Milk Stout on tap. So we might need to make another trip out to West Chester very soon.

Slow down and grill.

We drove out to suburbia this afternoon to have a Memorial Day cook-out with Geri…

Steaks were just the tip of the iceberg. There were also cheeseburgers and hot dogs and all sorts of sides. Soooo much food. It was a good time. It’s always really good to see her. And one the way home, we saw this double rainbow…

And it stuck around until we got on the highway to head home…

Pretty cool. 😀🇺🇸🥩🌈❤️

Good evening from West Chester.

This afternoon we went out to West Chester to visit Genifer’s mom. I love hanging out with Geri. We got to exchange Christmas gifts. And when we were packing up to come home, there was this gorgeous sunset…

😀🌄❤️

Seen and noted.

The weather was beautiful today and we saw a ladybug…

😀🐞❤️

Holtman’s Donuts West Chester.

We found ourselves out in West Chester this morning so we stopped to get a little box of delicious Holtman’s Donuts

YUM! Holtman’s has some of the best donuts around Cincinnati. 😀🍩❤️

Another trip to Ikea.

This afternoon we drove out to West Chester to visit Ikea again

We wanted to get another bookshelf and a proper desk chair for our office. We got those and we also got a little bookshelf for our living room. And we picked up some other odds and ends. Afterwards, we had lunch with Genifer’s mom at BDubs. Then we came home and put our new stuff together. Here’s our new shelf in the office…

Our office is actually starting to become pretty functional. So functional, we hung out in the office for the rest of the evening. 😀🇸🇪❤️

Our Thanksgiving.

This afternoon we went over to Genifer’s mom’s new house for Thanksgiving dinner…

I ate one of the turkey wings. It was like a giant chicken wing only with turkey! We hope everyone had a very thankful and delicious Thanksgiving! I know we did. It was a great day filled with wonderful food and family. 😀🦃❤️

Seen and noted.

Yesterday on our way back home from West Chester, we stopped at Circle K to get some gas. We saw these chile & lime puffed wheat snacks that I have never heard of before…

And there was this clever floor sign…

Next time, we’re trying some of those snacks. This afternoon we stopped at Home Goods. We saw these adorable little polar bears…

And we saw this seven-foot-tall giant polar bear…

It can be ours for just $999. What would you do with that guy and more importantly, where would you store him for the other 11-months of the year? 😀🇲🇽🐉🐻❤️

 

Lunch in West Chester.

This afternoon we drove out to West Chester to see Genifer’s mom’s new house. It’s super nice and really big with a big yard and all very West Chester. I didn’t take any photos because I’m really super weird about taking photos of other people’s stuff and posting it online. It’s not my thing. I just don’t do it. After we hung out at Geri’s new house for a bit, got the grand tour and the lay of the land, we all went to Dingle House in West Chester for lunch where I had this monster of a bacon burger…

The last time I talked to my parents, they were telling me about their post-Halloween All Stouts Day adventures at Bell’s Eccentric Cafe in Kalamazoo. And specifically, they were telling me about Bell’s Arabicadabra Coffee Milk Stout. And look what I found at Dingle House…

Unfortunately, it wasn’t actually on tap. Even though we were told a couple of times that the draught beer was completely current and just updated that morning. And that’s a bummer. But we’ll be out there to visit a lot of more. So we’ll keep checking back.

Personally, I think the vast suburbia that is West Chester gets a bad wrap. On our way to Geri’s house, we passed a bunch of places I wouldn’t mind checking out in the future trips out to the ‘burbs. And I could see the draw of living there. Big home, big yard, white picket fence, two-car garage and all that. It’s not for everyone. We like our more urban, walkable little neighborhood. But different strokes for different folks. And I look forward to our trips out West Chester to visit. 😀🏡🍔🍺❤️
