One of my very generous co-workers pulls together this annual outing just for fun for our entire firm and whoever wants to bring their "plus ones", for a fancy dinner and a musical afterward. On last nights agenda was Nicholson's, the first pub in Cincinnati.
Lets talk about the menu, I tried new things, and loved it all!
That, my friends, is called a Scotch Egg.. basically a hard-boiled egg, deep fried and wrapped in sausage. Don't worry, I only had half off an egg. My arteries are clogging just thinking about it. I also had a small side of lobster mac-n-cheese, OMG. Sooo yummy. For my actual meal I had a pulled pork sandwich, its like my go-to when I don't know what else to order.
After the yummy dinner, we walked across the street to the Aronoff Center, its beautiful. I don't know that I've been in years.
We saw the musical Jersey Boys. It was so much fun!! I really enjoyed it, and I think Caleb did too, for not being an "artsy" person. He'd probably much more enjoy Disney on Ice, and lets be real.. who wouldn't?! ;) Now for the ONLY picture we got of ourselves that night.. please excuse the terrible quality.
Hope you all have a fabulous Wednesday!! Have you been to a musical lately? What's your favorite?? I need some recommendations, ladies!!
