some things going on around town that we may hit up...
the family weekend wonders will be going on tomorrow through sunday at the lakewood public library. this is a free event open to the public, and will run at various times friday, saturday, and sunday. check here for more about the schedule. the kids and i enjoy going to this, especially when we get our favorite librarian ms. nikka to read the stories (if you've ever been to the lakewood public library, she's the one with the blue hair. we love her.). we also like mr. t, but he spends most of his time at the madison branch.
come back to lakewood public library later on that evening for their front porch concert series in july. this is another free event, going on from 7-9 p.m. this evening they will be featuring saborit latin soul. enjoy this hot, summer evening dancing around the front steps of the lakewood library to some latin music. too bad you can't enjoy a cool, refreshing mint mojito to go with it. hot, summer night, latin music and a mojito? i think that would just be about perfect.
do you like polka music? do you like hot dogs? do you like polka music with your hot dogs? then you don't want to miss dj kishka at the happy dog for polka happy hour from 6-9 p.m. with a vast selection of classic polka music, you won't be able to keep yourself from busting a polka move. ice cubes and beer baby!
if you are a supporter of local and handmade items, you might not want to miss cleveland craft coalition's true colors: exposed held at river colors studio and black bird baking company. there looks to be a great line up of artists. so make sure to stop by and check them out from 12-6 p.m.
lakewood streetwalk will be going on from 3-8 p.m. up and down detroit rd. this is technically their third year, although the first year was under the walk+roll program. if you've never been, i highly recommend taking the family (or friends or both). bring your strollers, bikes, skateboards or just your feet and enjoy the opportunity to traipse around in the middle of the street. last year, they had some live music from coffinberry, some awesome breakdancers, a skateboarding demo and zumba, to name a few. it was so much fun, and i'm sure this year it will be just as enjoyable.
tremont will be busy sunday from 12-8 p.m. for their 8th annual taste of tremont. we have yet to make it to this event, but hopefully we can check it out this sunday. if you like the pogues, the boys from county hell (an excellent pogues cover band) will be performing at the treehouse at 5 p.m. aaron and i had seen them a few months back for the first time ever and we were very impressed. i wonder if we can take the kids in?
the w. 9th phoenix cafe will be featuring ms. danielle deboe (room service shop owner and made in the 216 founder and organizer) as part of their phoenix forum event. come by from 2-3 p.m. and take the opportunity to ask her questions, get to know her and enjoy a fabulous cup of coffee.
so there you go. do some. do all. whatever suits your summer schedule. but make sure the get out there and do something!
