It’s been a while since my last post, but for good reason… it was my birthday this past weekend! February, though the shortest month, has been the busiest. Some people may dread their birthdays, but I’ve learned to embrace them. A year older, a year wiser. Right?
So how did I celebrate the big day? Just as a 23-year-old should: a delicious dinner followed by friends, vintage arcade games and cocktails named after ’80s celebrities.
My boyfriend, Jack, and I enjoyed a meal at The Littlefield in Northside: a hip bourbon bar with a delectable food menu. I got the Shrimp Pobaby Sandwich on gluten-free bread (which was the best bread I’ve ever had) and he got the Chicken Pot Pie. Both were absolutely delicious!
Later that night, we hit up one of my new favorite bars in Over-the-Rhine: 16-Bit Bar + Arcade. With 50+ classic games to choose from and all free to play (as long as you have a drink in hand), this place is non-stop fun. Add in a unique but tasty drink menu, and you’ve got yourself a good night. I had the Cindy Lauper: grape vodka, sour mix, Sprite and grenadine. Last time, I enjoyed the Winnie Cooper: berry vodka, peach schnapps, sour mix, cranberry and Sprite. Same concept, both amazing!
To finish off the night, as many *drunken* nights in OTR do, we stopped at Gomez Salsa: a tiny, walk-up taco window that serves the most amazing street food on the planet. Was that too dramatic? Oh well, with an analogy like that, you know it’s damn delicious.
