Good morning CLE & happy TAX Day! Hope everyone got by without owing too much to “the man” this year. Perhaps you’ve even received a refund…time to shop! :)
Did you know that this week kicks off the JazzFest? Last year I had the pleasure of attending the Tri-C JazzFest for the very first time. I saw the very talented, stunning and engaging artist Diana Krall at one of the many concerts during the week of live music presented by the JazzFest.
Now is your turn to win a pair of tickets and experience for yourself just how great this annual event really is.
Tri-C JazzFest Cleveland features jazz performances, classes, lectures, and many other concert and community outreach activities. Local and national artists teach, compose, arrange, and perform. Concerts take place at PlayhouseSquare, the Metropolitan Campus of Cuyahoga Community College, and the new MOCA Cleveland. This year, the show is running from April 19 thru May 4.
In addition to the show, there is an Opening Night Party on April 19 to kick off the festival! The party will be held at Playhouse Square in the State Theatre Lobby from 5-7pm and is sponsored by Great Lakes Brewing Company. The event is free and open to the public, and will feature live music by Detroit’s Nadir & Distorted Soul. After the party, the fest will kick off with performances by Aaron Neville and Dr. John at 8pm!
So you want in? Want that free pair of tickets? Visit the festival site to explore the performers, then tweet me @iheartclev which artist you would like to see at this years #TriCJazzFest. Winner to be chosen by Wednesday, April 17th! Good luck.

Happy Monday all you Cleveland lovers, hope you everyone managed to get some rest after that steaming hot halftime show. I mean whether you like her voice or not, that girl was on fire for sure. No need to really talk about the actual game; however I did enjoy all the twitter activity when the lights went out during the second half of the game..WOW.
Today I have a very big treat for one lucky reader. For over ten years I have had my hair cut, colored, trimmed, curled, poufed and more by one special lady. She has done the hair for my sisters who sometimes fly from across the country for a new ‘do just for her style and talent with hair of all types. As a recent mom balancing work and life was a concern for her and so she did what any rational person might do…start her own business? Yes, my friend Tiffani has recently founded LovLox the perfect chair to relax into, to get those InStyle waves, to achieve that rocking Valentines Day red head ‘do or a new pixie cut for spring. LovLox is located at 29540 Center Ridge Road (located inside fringe & foundation) in Westlake. It has a ton of natural bright light and a nice buzz around the salon, just what a salon experience should be.
I am really excited for today’s giveaway and can’t wait to see the before & afters! Today one lucky reader will get an initial consultation, cut and style from LovLox. the perfect push for a new spring look in the CLE. To win, follow @LOVLOXRR, and then tweet me @iheartclev, “I need a new @LOVLOXRR ‘do for spring!” Winner will be chosen by random and notified on Monday, February 11th.
