Explore Cincinnati’s Boozy Side: Bakersfield

Another week, another bar from the Roadtripper’s article, Explore Cincinnati’s Boozy side.

This wasn’t the first visit to Bakersfield but due to its popularity, it’s a hard little space to get into.  The article recommends a boot of beer (but it’s PBR) and a shot of tequila (it’s not pretty when I drink tequila).  Luckily, there are other beers to drink!

While we passed on the PBR boot recommendation, we can still highly recommend Bakersfield. The real treat here is the guacamole. We make our own guacamole so we tend to be a bit picky as to what is included & the level of spice. One of our pet peeves is guacamole that is like paste. If you like large chucks of avocado, enough spice to make you sip your beer a little faster and just the right amount of onion – this guacamole is worth the trip alone.

Other offerings aren’t bad either and we’ve sampled the tacos, tortas and tostadas – all with excellent results.

Something a little fun, and a little disturbing depending on the film is Bakersfield plays cheesy yet violent westerns. Always interesting noshing on food watching bloody faces glowering at each other.

This is a great little spot on Vine and I encourage a visit, but if you’re interested, better make it soon. Rumor has it this joint is about to be featured on DDD.

Time keeps on slipping, slipping, slipping….

Wow. Not sure where August went, or where September is zipping off to, but time flies when you have a lot to do!

Our RV is currently parked in Steamboat Bend, about a 20 minute drive from downtown Cincinnati. In what looks like major surgery, the refrigerator is sitting in the middle of the RV floor,  while we’re trying to troubleshoot our continuing water woes. We finally made a window blind replacement decision (painful post to follow detailing that saga), and those should arrive within a week.

We have moved all the ‘non essentials’ back to the RV basements & cubbies and next weekend will start living  the odd life of half in an loft/half in an RV for a few weeks.

Our launch date back on the road is September 27th and tentatively we are headed to the Smokey Mountains, then plan on meandering through SC until we hit the coast.

Our travel will be different this time, with both of us working remote. Our plan is to incorporate more longer stays instead of moving every week. I have some work travel to fit in, and Keith will have to travel as well. It will be a challenge, but we are ready to hit the road.

Our time in Cincinnati is coming to an end and while I am ready for some wide open spaces, there is a lot I will miss about Cincinnati, specifically Over the Rhine where we rented our loft. Next weekend we move the RV out of storage and we will be busy getting it ready and moving back in. I’m not sure how much more time I will have to wander the neighborhood for snaps, but enjoy these!
