Cyclones hockey game #12.

It was another cold and chilly evening in downtown Cincinnati. A perfect evening to brave the cold, and walk down to US Bank Arena to watch more Cyclones hockey! Let's go!

Burns Night at Nicholson's.

We ventured over to Nicholson's on a cold Monday evening...
20150126_202724
Tonight was Nicholson's favorite celebrations of the year, Burns Night They were honoring Robert Burns, one of the most famous Scottish poets and lyricists in history. Burns composed hundreds of songs, poems and letters over a 22 year period of his life. This first recorded Burns celebration was held in July 1801 on the anniversary of his death. Later, the celebration would move to the evening of the anniversary of his birth (January 25, 1759), and would go on become "Burns Night."

We tried a couple of different drinks. I tried a Black Velvet (Guinness floated over cider) and Genifer tried a Snake Bite (Harp floated over Cider). Both were really good stuff!
