Saturday was the last City Flea of the year and I was itching to buy the t-shirt I saw at the last flea as well as eat some fancy grilled cheese. Because of the threat of rain and a slight chill the flea was not as crowded as in previous months but the atmosphere was still lively. There was a DJ and a large amount of vendors selling neat handmade items.
The first thing I did when I got to the flea was stop at the C’est Cheese food truck. I was hoping to try the Bad Girl sandwich (brie, honey and raspberry sauce on french bread) but it wasn’t on the menu for the day, so I ordered The Bee Sting. Mozzarella, pepperoni, and basil infused honey on Tuscan pane.
First, the sandwich is massive and the cheese is quality. I think I’ve been doing myself a disservice by purchasing the bagged, shredded, store brand cheese. But what made the sandwich special were the pockets of honey in every other bite. It’s not something I would have put together myself, but now I want to try honey with all types of cheeses and see what the result will be.
While at the flea I also picked up this t-shirt by the company Be Ohio Proud. I wanted something to commemorate my three years in Cincy since it’s not guaranteed that I’ll be here after graduation. It’s ultra soft and lists attributes of the state of Ohio. My favorite attribute on the shirt is #swingvote, ha! There are a few other colors and designs on the website, and they also make sweatshirts. Last, 15% of every purchase gets donated to a local non profit. The non profit for 2013 is The Green Umbrella. It’s an organization that is dedicated to making Cincinnati a more green and sustainable region.
