Downtown lofts...I want one

Downtown Cincinnati is undergoing some major renovations all from which I benefit. New parks are being put in, amazing restaurants are popping up, a new casino is opening and people are really investing in and taking pride of the city. My friend's parents just bought a "corporate condo" downtown and I met my friend Katie there after work the other night for some much needed girl time. Katie has been living in Columbia and was home for a quick visit so I'm so happy we squeezed in a date! A downtown loft was the perfect date spot.
Let's just say after living the high life for a night, I now want to own a loft downtown. The view was gorgeous and it would save me quite a bit of gas money since I could literally walk from work to the loft. (Are you convinced yet Drew? I only need to sell about 20,000 more banners to pay it off. Manageable right?)
We started out with drinks on the rooftop then walked across the street to a new restaurant called Bakersfield. Bakersfield has Mexican street food and I loved it because everything you order on their menu is a la carte. The food was delicious...I will definitely be a repeat offender.
Hopefully I will be back to blogging more consistently next week, but things have been crazy around here with report cards, a wedding, 30th birthday, a kitchen makeover and a new crafting space! All exciting things (minus the report cards), but I'm ready for a day of relaxation. Can't wait to catch up with you all soon! Happy weekend!

Sounds like a fun night in the city! You would love the city living, I didn't think I would but having everything within walking distance is great! :)

There are such nice apartments downtown here too, but I can't imagine doing that with kids! We prefer being 20 min out of downtown on our half acre lot :)

Oooh that place looks awesome. And we've been meaning to try Bakersfield... definitely want to go now! Fun.

Bakersfield sounds delicious! I would love a loft in the city (while I'm young). Looking at moving back to Ohio after law school, and would LOVE to find something in Cinci. Maybe a fun, urban apartment there is in my future!
