Weekend Recap...Cincinnati Style! Part 2

You can find part 1 of my Memorial Day weekend recap here.  Prepare for picture overload in this post!

Sunday morning we got up and went to the Horseshoe Casino.  It's a new casino in downtown Cincinnati that just opened not too long ago.  Too bad we all didn't come back winners!

For lunch on Sunday we went to Taste of Cincinnati.  We tried so many AMAZING foods, but here are some of my favorites:

Dill Pickle Chips - probably my favorite thing.

Giant Cream Puff - and it was HUGE!

Deep Friend Peanut Butter & Jelly.  This what Kevin was most excited about.
Drew, Lisa, Chris, and Kevin enjoying their PB&J's!
Tons of people downtown for Taste of Cincinnati.

After Taste of Cincinnati, we headed to the Cincinnati Reds v. Chicago Cubs game.  It was a perfect day for a baseball game!  The Reds ended up losing in extra innings, but it was still a fun game.

Perfect day for beer and baseball!

After the game we went to Hofbrauhaus for dinner.  It's a German restaurant (if you couldn't tell from the name) and it was a really cool place.  The food was excellent and the atmosphere was fun too.  I was so hungry, that I totally devoured my food before I even thought to take any pics.  But trust me, everything was amazing!

On Monday morning we went to the Cincinnati Zoo.  We love going to the zoo when we go to Cincinnati :)


After the zoo we went to Maggiano's for lunch and again, ate way too much!  They had great bread, pasta, and dessert.  We couldn't even finish it all.  After lunch we headed home.  It was a long, rainy, 6 hour drive home but totally worth it after all of the fun we had over the weekend.

Thank you Chris and Lisa for always showing us a great time when we come down to visit and for letting us stay with you!

Hope your Memorial Day weekend was as great as mine!
