Cincinnati Hotspots

Last weekend, we were in different areas of Cincinnati that were so beautiful and well worth exploring. Even though I went to Miami for four years, we pretty much stuck to a few standard places when we went out in Cinci and I'd never been to some of the places we went. So since we did a lot of great eating that weekend, here are the restaurants we went to:

First of all, for the bachelorette party, we went to Montgomery Inn at the Boathouse. It has AMAZING barbeque and looks out over the Ohio River... we were there at 9pm (due to the ER visit, we ate a little late that night) and we still got a table right next to the floor length window overlooking the river. The waiter was amazing, even though there were 12 girls there, and it was so yummy and beautiful. Here's a picture of the outside of it:



For the rehearsal dinner the next night, we were in Mt. Adams. I have never been up there, but it's this part of Cinci that's way up on a mountain. Apparently they have a great nightlife there and some other neat things to do. We went to a restaurant called the Celestial (http://www.thecelestial.com/) which was where Matt and Leah got engaged. The cool thing about this restaurant was the atmosphere. It was built so that there are many rooms to it, and only a few tables per room. There's a large piano there, and a guy dressed up in a suit was playing live jazz music while we were there. There are also floor-to-ceiling windows which you can overlook the entire city! Here's the view from the restaurant:



We were there on the 4th of July so we got to see fireworks too. It was just great. I think the reason I enjoyed these two places so much was the atmosphere, and of course combined with delicious food.

Update on stitches: I got them out this morning, and the doctor said the cut looks like it's healing well, although I'll probably have a "decent scar" according to her.

Dan and I had a great weekend last weekend, so I'm going to try to catch up on my posts this week and tell you all about it!

HAPPY 21st BIRTHDAY JULIE!!!

I'm glad your stitches are out! You were such a champ! Too bad the decent scar isn't heart-shaped, like we planned. :)

Oh, and "ambulance driving skills"... that's a lovely way to put it!
