do something: weekend april 16 - 18

okay folks.  this weekend is p.a.c.k.e.d. no shortage of things to do if you feel like getting out.

tonight, we will be heading over to VANITYLAB for their 2nd anniversary party.  like last year, they will be featuring local artists, raising money for a non-profit organization, and offering raffle prizes.  this year's fundraiser is for the SPCA, and they will have pups and kittens onsite available for adoption.  the event runs from 6 - 9 p.m. check it out and enjoy some music, free food and drinks, and support your local artists and the SPCA!

lakewood public library will be showing 2 films from 7 - 8:30 p.m. as part of whole food's let's retake our plates film series.  if you are interested in learning more about (or are already involved in) supporting sustainable local food systems and why it's important to know your food's history this would be a great opportunity. 

then there's the beachland bluegrass barn dance tonight.  doesn't that just sound fun?  a barn dance.  all ages show with 6 bands.  doors open at 7:30 p.m. with a $7 cover.  bust out your cowboy hat and come on down ya'll!  yeeehaaaww!

in the morning, lakewood public library will be working with stitch cleveland to host a free event on making your very own tote bag.  the class runs from 9 a.m. - 12 p.m. and you can register through the library.  already know how to make a tote but would still like to get involved?  they are also looking for volunteers to help registered participants learn to sew their totes.

the beck center is hosting a free art-centered activity for young ones and their families from 9 - 11:30 a.m.  a great opportunity to encourage the hidden artist in your young child.

walk all over waterloo monthly event kicks off tomorrow at noon.  it's record store day at music saves and blue arrow recordssalty not sweet will be holding a craft show from 12 - 8 p.m.   and the galleries all have exhibits for you to see.  music saves has a very comprehensive list for the walk all over waterloo event.  we'll be heading over as soon as kids are done with naps and aaron is done with practice.  maybe we'll bump into each other.  or not.

lake erie nature and science center will be bringing out their screech owl at 3 p.m. as part of their free, meet an animal program.  get up close and personal with this hooter.

we had some great success at the north olmsted early childhood pta kids resale last saturday (even found something for ty), and there are 3 going on for the 17th.  not sure if we'll be making it out to any this time, but you really can find some great deals at these resales.  westlake early childhood pta will be having theirs from 8 a.m. - 12 p.m. at westlake high schoollake county early childhood pta will be having theirs from 8 a.m. - 1 p.m. at the willoughby hills community centernorth royalton early childhood pta will be having theirs from 8 a.m. - 1 p.m. at north royalton high school

i mentioned last week that we would be attending bat boy: the musical.  if you're looking for a good laugh i recommend going to this show (even if you're not a fan of musicals, this might be the only musical you might actually enjoy).  they've got a matinee show at 3 p.m.  if sunday afternoon isn't a good day, they've got a show friday night, saturday afternoon and saturday night.  and the performance runs through may 16, so there are plenty of opportunities for you to see it (or see it again).  schedule and tickets are here.

there are plenty more around but here's what i've got this weekend.  have fun, yo!  see you on the flip side.
