Reds All-Star Game Packet.

We got our much anticipated Reds All-Star Game Packet in the mail today...

And the good news is... All-Star Game tickets aren't going to set us back as much as I was dreading they would. I was bracing for $750+ per ticket strip. They're not anywhere near as much as I was thinking. They still aren't cheap. But they definitely won't be breaking the bank. So we'll be seeing you at the 2015 MLB All-Star Game! :)

For the upcoming Bockfest 2015, March 6th–8th in downtown Cincinnati...

Pause for paws.

Oscar was laying the sofa guarding his beloved jelly sammich....

He loves that dang jelly sammich. :)

Another pair of lost shoes.

We saw another pair of lost shoes outside of building this evening...
Lost shoes
It's kind of crazy how many lost shoes you see around downtown.

One of the first signs of spring.

One of the first signs that spring is finally returning to downtown Cincinnati is when they start dismantling the US Bank Ice Rink on Fountain Square...

Another snowy downtown evening.

All the salt on the sidewalks has managed to injure Oscar's paw. He's been a little bit hobbled with a bad wheel for the last few days. So Genifer's been taking him on very short little mini walks. That means, it was just me and Milan braving the cold and trudging through all the slush downtown...
Snowy evening
Figures that you finally see salt trucks once the roads are clear...
Snowing evening
Someone built a snowman in Lyle Park. But it doesn't look like he faired too well...

A foggy evening in downtown Cincinnati.

It was a surprisingly foggy evening in downtown Cincinnati...

I guess that's what's happened when the temperatures aren't well below zero. :)

Downtown details.

We were reminded that Easter is just around the corner by this adorable window display from The Booksellers on Fountain Square...

Another snowy day in downtown Cincinnati.

For the first, second, third fourth time this week, we got another dose of the cold, white stuff dropped on us. We're still nowhere near the snomageddon that the northeast has been enduring. I'm just saying I think it's odd that we've gone all winter without any snow, and then we get snow dumped on us four times in one week. At least, we don't have to drive in this mess...

Cod for God: St. Thomas of Fort Thomas.

This evening we ventured back across the river to Fort Thomas, Kentucky to check out the Lenten fish fry over at St. Thomas...

I got a fish dinner set-up with macaroni and cole slaw...
St. Thomas
That macaroni was definitely worth the trip alone. The fish was deliciously tasty, really very good and not greasy at all. However, it was very oddly shaped. Little cubes that at first glance we thought were hush puppies not fish. But still, it was very tasty stuff. The coleslaw was good too. I'm not a huge fan of coleslaw. But we finished the whole thing. And like I said, the macaroni was just out of this world.

Next week, we'll try another fish fry. :)
