Be sure to attend the final “episode” of Cleveland’s NEXT HOT MODEL, live at Crocker Park. The crowd will decide who wins, so bring your friends and vote for your favorite finalist. After the show, stick around for live music and more. If it’s a nice evening it should make for a good crowd, don’t miss out!
Shown here are finalists from round 1 Mike Gunn and Michelle Cupka.
For more information on the show visit www.crockerpark.com or www.kissfm965.com
Can you believe it’s August? I can’t. I still have lots of things I need to “get in” to call it an official summer. A game of put put golf at Memphis Kiddie Park. A few more trips out on the Kayaks. Ice cream at Honey Hut and perhaps even an evening of firefly collecting (just kidding…sorta). But most of all summer in Cleveland wouldn’t be complete without a trip to the fair!
The Cuyahoga County Fair runs now until Sunday at the Berea Fairgrounds. Pack your Purell and go to oogle the baby pigs and cows, the best tasting blueberry pies, the gorgeous gladiolas grown-locally and more. General admission is $5.95 (children 3-12 yrs old $4.95) or after 9:30 pm, $3.00. If you want to take a spin on the Ferris wheel or bumper cars (my favorite) ride tickets are $.50 each (2 tickets per ride) or purchase an all-day ride band for just $12.
What could be more summer than a evening at the fair? Cotton Candy (love the sweet smell and baby pink hue) and corn on the cob. Live music and motor sports. Activities for you (flea market) the kids (bubble gum blowing contest) and your strange “uncle Eric” (the great bear show). Add it to this weekend’s list.

The Ingenuity Festival returns with a weekend-long celebration of art and technology, designed for audiences of any age and experience, staged in the center of Downtown Cleveland. Prominent international masters present original works alongside the finest of Northeast Ohio’s performing and visual artists. High technology firms and major colleges and universities are presented alongside acclaimed artists to create a dazzling display of exciting and immersive new work! Ingenuity pushes boundaries, creating a unique festival experience that draws and celebrates diversity, and involves the audience as both spectator and participant!
There are so many interesting looking shows, exhibits and installations, but one that I deffinatley want to catch will be a late night performance by the Hot Cha Cha’s Friday night at the Plain Dealer Star Plaza Stage.
Oh and if you haven’t been to the Opening Ceremony (Friday, July 25 4-5:30 pm) before, it is worth it to skip out of work early for the big show…let’s just say…it’s Magical. :)

Did you know, burgers account for 40% of all sandwiches sold in the US every year? per
Although I don’t often post about Akron, I found something totally worth the 25 minute drive that I couldn’t resist sharing….if you are a vegetarian…please disregard this post, but for those meat lovers…it’s a MUST.
This year’s National Hamburger Festival takes place July 19-20 in downtown Akron. You won’t regret getting your “buns” in gear for a trip this weekend. They have everything a hamburger enthusiast would want and need from pickles, onion and ketchup toppings to events like, bobbing for hamburgers, lots of live music and a Miss Hamburger Pageant!

Do you know, the beer-delivery man in the Miller High Life commercials? You know, the guy who plays the “Beer Everyman” as part of Miller’s campaign to market the once-blue-collar-brewski into a retro-cool elixir. The one who barges into a cafe and proclaims, “$11.50 for a hamburger – ya’ll must be crazy!” Or struts into an upscale grocery and barks, “Eight-dollar candy bar – it’s prices like these that’s keeping folks from living the high life.” Or scoffs at some trendy club charging a $20 cover charge – “There’s no cover charge for the High Life.”
If you think you see the High Life Guy from those Miller ads on television around town Saturday, you’re right. Windell Middlebrooks, will be here sharin’ the love around Cleveland, so don’t miss him!
The pitchman, who got his start doing skits on Comedy Central and “The Bernie Mac Show,” will roam around bars in the Gateway District from 4 to 7 p.m. Then he’ll be serving beer at Progressive Field from 7 to 10 p.m., while the Indians take on the Cincinnati Reds. Then, from 10 to midnight, he’ll be barhopping on West Sixth Street in the Warehouse District.

It’s that time of the year again. It seems like no one looks forward to today…TAX DAY! However, Dunkin’ Donuts, the world’s largest coffee and baked goods chain, wants to brighten your tax day.
All customers purchasing a cup of Dunkin’ Donuts coffee, any size, today (April 15) will receive a free donut!
“We hope that Dunkin’ Donuts can make Tax Day a little more palatable for the tax filers and coffee lovers by offering them a delicious free donut,” Dunkin’ Donuts Brand Marketing Officer Frances Allen said. “We know Americans work hard for their money and this is our small way of showing our appreciation.”
So after you make your final stop at the local Post office, swing by DD, garb your coffee and large crawler (and then crawl your way to the treadmill!) Happy Tax Day!
