  Pumpkin fun! (10/21)

Wednesday, October 21st, 2009

By now I would assume some of you have your upcoming weekend, “to do” list completed. (Groceries. Rake leaves. Concert. Laundry. Buy Pumpkins!) Instead of waiting till this weekend to buy your pumpkin, swing by flourish, grab one of the 1001 pumpkins and give a donation to Harvest For Hunger and the Cleveland Foodbank in exchange for an “orange ball of carving fun.” All donations welcome!

If you’re feeling lucky you might also run into Rebecca Wilde from Q104…she is said to be hanging around the neighborhood giving away Miley Cirus tickets! (I still love “Ms. Montanna,” even though her new rap stinks!) Good lucky tweens & teens alike!

The pumpkin palooza frenzy will begin around 9am and run until 7pm, or while supplies last. Flourish : 1001 Huron Road East. Questions? Call “team get & give” at 216.696.9116.

  Mr. J-Z (10/22)

Thursday, October 22nd, 2009

Yeah I’m out that Brooklyn.
Now I’m down in Tribeca.
Right next to DeNiro
But I’ll be hood forever
I’m the new Sinatra
And since I made it here
I can make it anywhere.

(Empire State Of Mind Lyrics, from “The Blueprint 3” album)

Grammy-winning rapper, and Beyonces hubbie, Jay-Z is booked for a concert at 7:30 THIS WEEK at Cleveland State University’s Wolstein Center. Tickets run from $35 to $125. If you don’t want to gamble with trying to scalp a pair, visit www.livenation.com

  "Dr. Obama" (7/23)

Thursday, July 23rd, 2009

President Barack Obama is expected to visit the Cleveland Clinic Thursday as part of his campaign to promote health care reform.

White House officials said Saturday that the president would visit Northeast Ohio but did not offer a specific time or location for the event.

The appearance comes as Obama’s health care plan is under attack by both Republicans and some Democrats, who say the plan is too expensive.

Obama has praised the Cleveland Clinic in the past for playing a role in the health care reform by providing “the highest quality care at costs well below the national norm.”
