New Cleveland Breweries in the Flats

When we moved to Washington in spring 2015, we committed to going back home to Ohio for key holidays and significant events. We knew Brian would be heading back regularly to meet with customers and assumed I would tag along for those trips. We told everyone we would build in plenty of time for visiting …

The Sax Man: The Story Behind Cleveland’s Iconic Street Performer

A few weeks ago a saw a Facebook post by Great Lakes Brewing Company in Cleveland that the brewery was hosting a film showing. Unusual, but what really caught my attention was that The Sax Man, a documentary about one of Cleveland's iconic street performers, was the film. The Sax Man film was part of last year's …

Tackling the Cleveland Bucket List

In one of my previous posts I mapped out my New Year's Resolutions because it helped me stay on track last year. Thanks to my master's degree program, I've only been somewhat successful at meeting my goals this first quarter of 2014, but what we have tackled has been fun. Once a month we try …

Local Adventures: Cleveland’s West Side

You may recall I made a commitment to exploring my own backyard through a series of planned 'local adventures.'

West Side Market: 100 Year Anniversary

I love all things Cleveland, not the least of which is the west side. I lived in Lakewood when I interned downtown and loved getting to know that side of the city. Since then we've been to the west side numerous times, more often than not to check out the food scene and night life. …

Local Adventures: Cleveland’s East Side

The other night when we were at the lake, a friend was telling us about all these places I've never heard of in Cleveland. This really surprised me as I've lived in Northeast Ohio for almost 10 years and have lived all over Cleveland--the east, west and south. Also I have friends who like to …

Cleveland International Film Festival

My friend got me to attend the Cleveland International Film Festival a couple years ago, and I've been hooked ever since! The first year we went, it took a little getting used to. We didn't know where to go, we didn't understand how the vouchers/passes/tickets worked, we didn't figure out how to line up for …

St. Patty’s Day in Northeast Ohio

We had the most outrageously beautiful weather in Northeast Ohio this weekend, which was perfect for our St. Patty's Day/weekend events! The fiance was in Delaware all week for work, so I was non-stop running errands, prepping the house, outlining food plans and cleaning. I was exhausted driving home from work Friday afternoon, but it …
