This [Past] Week in Awesome was a fun one, especially as it was Valentine’s Day and a time to celebrate that and our fifth monthiversary at Ruth’s Parkside Cafe. It also included meals from places like Servatii (busy workdays call for quick soft pretzel lunches at my desk), Brew House, Gomez Salsa – Walnut Hills, Cafe DeSales, and El Pueblo; Trivia Night at Taste of Belgium – Rookwood; a soccer game at one of the best indoor facilities in Cincinnati, Soccer City; a lot of public transit (in addition to the daily to/from work routine); a warm weather trip to Washington Park for Franklin; happy hour at The Video Archive; bowling league at Crossgate Lanes; seeing Krystal Peterson & the Queen City Band at MOTR; and visits to multiple breweries, including The Woodburn and Rhinegeist.
We also spent some time in a great Cincinnati neighborhood on Sunday, which I will feature in a Neighborhood Highlight later this week.
