Tuesday, September 1

Good morning.

Good morning from downtown Cincinnati. I can't believe that it's already September 1st. Where has our summer up and disappeared to?

The summer has definitely flown by. I guess that's what happens with you cram a whole bunch of fun stuff into a very finite amount of time. Taken with Instagram. :)

Constructing Cincinnati.

They just keep moving that big dirt ramp from one side of the hole to the other side of the hole down at Lytle Park. Other than that, I'm not sure they're making a lot of progress...

It's what's for dinner.

We had a pretty lazy Sunday today. We didn't do much of anything at all. But we did manage to make these amazing BLTs for a late lunch!

Liberty Township.

This evening we went out to visit Cleve & Alyssa in Liberty township. We had a great time visiting with them. Especially after Cleve made all these chicken wings! YUM!
Wings for days.

Taste of OtR.

This afternoon we walked up to Washington Park to check out Taste of OtR...

The grass at Washington Park has definitely seen better days...

Wut? Why wouldn't your dog wear a sun dress? I mean, the sun's out isn't it?

But just like last year, there really wasn't anything we wanted to eat. I guess if you didn't get to Over-the-Rhine a lot, it would be a good way to sample what OtR has to offer. We just felt like we would rather walk over a couple of blocks and eat at the actual restaurant. Plus, it was kind of uncomfortably warm in all the sun that was flooding Washington Park.
Yesterday's #TasteofOtR at #WashingtonPark.
So we broke camp and headed over to one of our favorite spots, Nation Kitchen & Bar...
"Drinking rum before noon just makes you a pirate."
Nation was still serving brunch when we got there. We shared a Brunch Wrap Supreme and Breakfast Tots. Their stuff is so deliciously on point, it's kind of ridiculous...

Really fun afternoon. It's hard to go wrong when Washington Park & Nation are involved. :)

DomiNoNo.

Tonight, we cashed in on our free Domino's DomiNoNo pizza we scored on Monday from the Astro's Mike Fiers no-hitting the Dodgers last weekend...

You have to get the stuffed cheesy bread. Genifer made it a rule. YUM! Free makes pizza even more delicious! Thanks to Domino's, MLB and Mike Fiers! :)

Moerlein Lager House.

After Cocktails & Crown Jewels, we were a bit hungry so we decided, why not get a bite to eat from Moerlein Lager House since were right here? We landed on sharing the Short Rib Grilled Cheese...

We added a side of Lager House's Beer Cheese to dip our fries in. Best. Move. Ever.

Cocktails & Crown Jewels.

Genifer heard about Cocktails & Crown Jewels presented by Cincinnati Parks and Moerlein Lager House down at the Schmidlapp Event Lawn & Stage. There were five Cocktails and Crown Jewels scheduled throughout the summer. They promised a cool jazz vibe all summer with the hottest jazz in the beauty of Smale Riverfront Park on the banks of the Ohio. Unfortunately, tonight's last one of the season...

It's really, really hard not to take photos of the Roebling Suspension Bridge whenever you're on the event lawn or in Smale Riverfront Park...

We got a couple of Moerlein's Helles from the Lager House To-Go walk-up window, and settled in for some great music from The Sound Body Jazz Orchestra...

Great night. We just wish we would have heard about the Cocktails and Crown Jewels series a bit earlier in the summer. :( Click to see all the photos I took at Cocktails & Crown Jewels. :)
