Cincinnati Day One

Posted on: July 31, 2010

I’m in Cincinnati, Ohio for a long weekend, and day one has been a delight – except my friend Jeff is sick, and we’ve been worried about him today.  We arrived about 2:00, and went to Izzy’s Deli for lunch – but we did not have the corned beef, which they are famous for.  The soup and potato pancakes were great, and my sandwich was good.  Gabby’s sandwich was sort of plain, but okay.  Overall, we liked it, and would consider going back.

After lunch, we went to the Torrid store, which was AMAZING!  First, I was familiar with their website, but had never bought anything because it’s better if you get to try things on.  We both found heaps of things to try on, and we both bought several items.  We’re actually planning semi annual trips back, even if all we do is go to the store. Totally worth it.

After that, I got my first mani/pedi, and Gabby got a manicure.  I’m glad we tried it, because I’ve always wanted to, but I’m not in a hurry to do it again.  Parts of it were pleasant, but overall it was painful 😦  Then, when the tech helped me put on my new open toed shoes, he cut the back of my ankle – ouch!

So, dancing was out, but we decided to have dinner at the Melting Pot. Okay, it’s a fondue place, which was just cool and part of the reason we chose it; also it got great reviews for a first date (lol).  It was a lot of fun, even if we were a little taken aback by being served a platter of raw meat.  Dinner took two and a half hours, and was about $120.

We have lots of ideas for places to go to tomorrow, and we’re loving Cincinnati so far!
