so, we have been so busy doing stuff that i haven't gotten around to posting the weekly happenings around town. just because summer is over, there are still plenty of things to go out and see before the deathly cold and snow arrive.
the following list are some of the things we might check out over the weekend.
the monthly tremont artwalk starts tonight from 6-10 p.m. parking is quite difficult to find in the neighborhood so if you plan be prepared to walk. or you can try taking the bus down there too. if you haven't been yet, make sure to stop by lilly handmade chocolates for their wine and beer tastings. yummy!
my dear husband will be performing tonight with his band, scoliosis jones, at now that's class. they always put on a great show, and this evening they'll be performing with wolfboy slim, the chop tops and lords of the highway. show starts at 9 p.m. and it sounds like a full night of music!
saturday, we will most likely start the morning (after breakfast and coffee) by heading to the wooltex gallery to check out the cleveland handmade market. i don't know if i'll purchase anything, but i love seeing the fantastic work offered by all the local artists. plus, this event will also be in conjuction with cleveland's annual sparx city hop event. there looks to be A LOT going on with this event, from city artists at work open studios, tower city street fair, and asian town center a.r.t fest. the market will be running from 10 a.m. - 6 p.m. , though some of the times may very for the other events. i think we might have to plan ahead and pick and choose exactly what we want to see that day.
though we'll most likely be spent from the sparx city hop, you can also check out the lakewood community festival being held at madison park from 11 a.m. - 5 p.m. we went a few years ago, and it was a great opportunity to just get out and celebrate the community. it will probably be a little more low-key than the sparx city hop if you're looking for something a little more "relaxed."
this sunday will be the last picnic of the park of the year for cross point. boohoo. i love our summer picnics at the park, and i'll be sad to see end. this sunday's theme will be a hawaiian luau. last year, we brought some tasty fried SPAM and pineapples. it went over so well, that i think we might consider bringing that again. if you haven't tried fried SPAM, it truly is a hawaiian favorite. and if you'd like to try it, make sure to stop by lakewood park, sunday at 5 p.m. [seriously, if you'd like to go call or text us so we know to expect you.] there will be some calling your name...
