Seen and noted.

We saw our first Newport Ride the Ducks boat of the season!
Newport Ride the Ducks boat
At the beginning of every summer we've said we're going to Ride the Ducks. And then
summer flies by so fast, and we missed taking a duck boat ride again. No more excuses,
this summer I'm making it my mission to make sure we definitely Ride the Ducks. :)

This afternoon we headed down to Sawyer Point to check out the Earth Day celebration...

Red Roost Tavern.

This evening we wandered across downtown to grab a bite to eat at Red Roost Tavern
in the recently renovated downtown Cincinnati Hyatt Regency. I always marvel at how
gorgeous their lobby has become...

Unfortunately, Triple Digit's Chickow was no longer on tap. So we sampled a couple of
beers from Cincinnati's Blank Slate Brewing Company...

Constructing Cincinnati.

Everytime we walk by the new Dunnhumby Center at the corner of Fifth and Race Streets
in downtown Cincinnati, it just keeps getting bigger and bigger. It really looks like it's going
to be an amazing addition to the landscape of downtown Cincinnati...
