Local Tourist: June 2019

Saturday, June 1: I attended Rob Lowe: Stories I Only Tell My Friends with my dad. I still need to do a post on this, so that should be coming next month. I’m a bit behind on reviews of events I’ve been to! At any rate, this was a ton of fun. It was great hearing stories directly from Rob Lowe – he’s quite funny!

Sunday, June 2: The final day of Bunbury, which I’m still re-capping on the blog. You can read about Poppy and Fall Out Boy right now though!

Thursday, June 6: My mom and I went to an ice cream place called Buzzed Bull Creamery. The name is because you can add alcohol, but we didn’t. We just got ice cream. It’s a really cool place and the ice cream is amazing!

Saturday, June 8: I attended the 40th Anniversary Ice Cream social at a local bookstore with my sister. I even won the Snack Basket (they had different baskets as raffle items).

Saturday, June 22: I went to the Cincinnati Pride Festival with my sister and met up with/ran into a few friends. We went later in the day because we wanted to see the final act, which was Todrick Hall. He was a lot of fun and it was great seeing him perform live.

That’s it for me this month. As I said above, I’m a bit behind on events I attended in the last couple of months so my plan is to have those published sometime in July. And seriously, how is it July on Monday?

  1. What a lovely June you had! Hearing stories from Rob Lowe must have been so interesting.
    That ice-cream place sounds amazing and congrats on winning a snack basket!

  2. Ooh you had a fun month! I bet Rob Lowe was a ton of fun to hear speak! I love him! And ice cream is always a win in my book!

  3. Pride sounds so fun in Cincinnati! It was the first one in a long time, right? The ice cream shop sounds so yummy! And so does Rob Lowe 😉 Haha!

  4. I got this little flyer/booklet thing from a local bookstore and it’s the Midwest Indie Bookstore Roadmap. It was kind of useless but had a website (midwestbooksellers.org) so I’ve been going through that to see if we’ll be near any bookstores on our road trip in August. I’m trying to convince Matt at least one stop is warranted.

  5. What? Ice cream and alcohol? Interesting combo. We are going to an ice cream social thing downtown on Sunday. Maybe I will write it up as a local tourist adventure. We have done so well on our Weight Watchers but allow ourselves treats now and then which usually equates to Mexican food and ice cream!!

    El Paso’s Pride parade was a pretty big deal this year. Lots of folks, one of my friends said. And they gave away some super cute rainbow tees.

  6. Now that’s what I call a month! Right now, I’m going to have a shot of tequila in honor of your alcohol-less ice cream. And Rob Lowe. (I’d say Buzzed Bull might be my spirit animal, but clearly I’m the raccoon who found his way into the back of a bakery instead.)

  7. Sounds like you have a good Pride weekend up there. My local town’s Pride was earlier this month and it was the same weekend I was tied up with family, so I wasn’t able to go. I’m glad you had a good time!
