This weekend was basically like every other weekend in my life, except Kenny and I had a stroller with a kid in it the entire time.
Seriously, I am so proud of us. We were out and about pretty much the entire weekend and Harry was just along for the ride. Friday night we headed down to Mynt Martini for some live music courtesy of Pete Dressman and it was awesome. We parked right next to the rock star, ordered some Coronas, and no one made a peep. Glorious.
Once the music ended, we popped into Palomino for dinner. We were pushing it a bit time-wise for the little guy, so we ordered to go, but it was nice to sit there and hang out for the nightcap. Harry was by far the most popular patron.
Then with no particular plans on Saturday, Kenny saw on the Cincinnati.com app that Washington Platform was having Wingfling 2015, featuring forty-eight different wing flavors. So we packed up and made our way.
While the menu was extensive and the combinations pretty killer, we opted for the Hawaiian BBQ (pineapple, garlic, and BBQ) and Beijing (sweet chili and soy) wings.
The wings are made to order and you can tell. Even though I almost always prefer boneless, sometimes it feels like you’re just eating super breaded chicken nuggets, but these boneless wings were different. They weren’t super breaded or super meaty and while I can’t quite put my finger on what they are like, they are definitely good.
As far as the flavors go, I favored the Beijing, while Kenny favored the Hawaiian. The soy was super present in the Beijing and it was really working for me. The Hawaiian had more of a staple hot sauce kick to them, which is not my fav, but for a man who seriously loves sauces and condiments, Kenny was into them. But I’d say all the way around, it was a fun little lunch. Wingfling is going on for the entire month of August so whether you are familiar or not with Washington Platform, or you are a huge fan of wings, I’d say it is worth the trip.
We then pretty much spent the rest of the weekend at Washington Park. Saturday we just walked through post lunch, and Sunday we spent the afternoon there with Kenny’s family while his nieces and nephews played in the fountains. Harry was parked on the sidelines, but he didn’t feel left out. He had his mind on his napping and his napping on his mind.
And on top of it all, Kenny and I also snuck in our first date post baby. Thanks to two sweethearts from his office, we went out for drinks at The Blind Lemon and sushi at Teak on Saturday night. It was only a few hours, but it was all we needed. Such a treat.
Now that I’ve written this all out, it almost seems over the top with how much we did, but in retrospect, it stands as a shining example of what Kenny and I want our lives to be like…active, enjoyable, mobile, and fun. Hope you all feel the same.
