Happy Hour in Downtown Cinci on a Friday...ugh

I'm not a "happy hour" kind of girl - I don't really drink and I don't much like ginormous crowds of YPs. I think I'm getting old...and I'm fine with that.

But by request - I went out to BlackFinn a couple weeks back. It's very loud and there are a lot of people. If you like that kind of thing - it's great. I just don't...but I made the best of it.

The front is a quieter more "restaurant" atmosphere, the middle is a bar with high-top tables and booths but it's really loud and very much about the drinking and mingling, then the back is all bar and even louder.

Again - this all sounds negative cuz I really don't much care for this - but hey - if I gotta be here - I might as well get a bite to eat and write about it.

I seemed to remember the chicken fingers ($8.99) were good and I was right. They are probably the best chicken fingers in the city. The breading is really tasty and they're juicy. If you're there - get these - for sure!

I got the slider trio sampler - which on their website looks like this:

In reality, it looks like this:

One each of the Classic Beef, Pulled Pork and Southern Fried Chicken Sliders - 6.99

Okay - seriously - the buns are completely different and there was no lettuce on that plate! The burger was actually really good - very juicy. The other two - meh.

I just cracked up when I saw the pic on the website and then my pic - wow - not even close!

Why Should You Go? To drink.

  1. it's funny how much better restaurant pictures look than the food that is actually served! It's especially bad with fast food.
