It’s a busy week over her in blogland! So many happenings around town, so much summer fun and planning for those long weekends with friends. It’s gonna be a great summer in the 216 I can just tell!
One thing I am really looking forward to is the second annual series of Yoga Rocks the Park which kicks off this Sunday morning. The organizers have put together an entire summer series which includes teachers from various studios around town coming together on Lincoln Park in Tremont to practice together, focus on wellness and enjoy the tunes of area musicians. Tickets ($12 in advance, or $15 the day of) and directions to Lincoln Park in Tremont are available at: http://yogarocksthepark.com/cleveland-schedule-2013/.

Hello & Happy “Monday!” How was your (chilly) Memorial Day 2013? All good here, two big picnics, going out to dinner & a “mini-bar” with friends, lots of putting together IKEA furniture, hours of planting perrenials, 72 homemade bacon deviled eggs and a bit of relaxing…all in all a good holiday weekend.
A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to have a great girls-evening-out at the Cleveland Museum of Art’s latest installation, Provenance. A friend of mine and I made a reservation for a Wednesday evening, had a few glasses of bubbly pre, pre-fixed dinner and finished it up with a sweet dessert and glass of red wine. Plus, we enjoyed wandering through the coolest Gallery One.
Chef Douglas Katz did not dissappoint, from the yummy sweet bread and butter, to my fish and chips to the carrot cake muffin and carmelized walnuts this dinner was anything but low fat…however worth every calorie, I can’t say enough about the chic, clean lines of the interior, the wonderful evening light the makes the dining area glow and the terrific service.
Want to check it our yourselves? I have a generous $100 gift certificate available to a lucky reader. Either leave me a comment OR tweet me “I would HEART $100 for Provenance at @ClevelandArt from @iheartclev” (Winner to be announced by Monday, June 3rd) Enter daily, the more entires, the better your odds!

Good morning CLE and happy Tuesday to ya!
Many of you might know this about me but I am a total art geek. Thanks to my Mom, I spent my childhood growing up with a craft box under my bed. My Saturday mornings were spent in painting classes with other “free spirit”kids and by the time I reached college I was attending gallery openings in my down time, hanging out in the painting lofts of fellow art school students and taking extra credits in anything from silk screen to stained glass. As a professional graphic designer I feel lucky each day that I get to create visual inspiration for a living.
Happy Tuesday yall. Fun stuff today at “iheart” the guys of GV Art & Design have offered one lucky reader one of their stylish and well-designed CLE shirts.
I picked out a few of my favorites to share and show today. From all the non-sensical weather we’ve been having, to celebrating Superman to a chic “lovely” shirt, these three are just a sampling of all their great work. You can see them all at their online store here.
To win one of their t-shirts tweet me (@iheartclev) which @gvartwork shirt you would proudly wear. (ex : @iheartclev, I heart the “Totem Pole” tee made by @gvartwork!) Winner will be drawn on April 30th. Good luck to you.
