The Sunshine Boys at Porthouse Theatre

Last week, I posted about my first trip to Blossom Music Festival to see the Cleveland Orchestra. I don’t know what took me so long to get out to the summer concert hotspot, but Scott and I tried to make up for lost time by paying it a return visit this past weekend. In addition…

Summers with the Cleveland Orchestra at Blossom

After Saturday’s 5K, this past weekend had another “first” for me.  Fortunately, it was a much more leisurely kind of “first” – my first visit to Blossom Music Festival.

After Alicia at Poise in Parma announced that July 9th’s Ohio Blogging Meetup would be The Run for the Pierogies, it was the motivator I…

Time Traveling with Ingenuity Cleveland, Emerging Chefs and PlayhouseSquare

Scott and I finally saw Midnight in Paris last week (which hands down deserves its 92% rating on Rotten Tomatoes). His mom and sister had been urging me for weeks to see Woody Allen’s latest comedy because like Owen Wilson’s character, I can often be a sucker for nostalgia. From shopping…

The Chubby Cook Opens in Beachwood, Ohio

I headed out to my old Eastside stomping grounds this week to try a new food concept from Scott Groth – The Chubby Cook in Beachwood. What started as a popular food blog featuring Scott’s photographs, reviews and recipes has transformed into a brick and mortar establishment for grab-and-go lunches,…

Clue Into Being Active in CLE

By no stretch of the imagination am I an athlete. If you’ve been following this blog even for a short while, you’ll know my huge loves are food and the arts. And although I enjoy watching sports, I don’t often participate in them. A huge reason for this is that I’m…
