Hey CLE! So fun to hear from so many of you about our move to the east side of town. We have passed the official one week mark and so far, so good! Thanks to those of you who tweeted, private messaged, shot me a text and even dropped me a note to welcome our family to this side of town. Your kindness and midwestern hospitality are making us feel right at home. Thank you.
This past weekend we spent some time prepping for some upcoming weekend guests, having dinner with friends and some solid pool time. We have our first house guests coming to visit and we couldn’t be more excited to share our new digs with them. Plus get another set of hands involved in unpacking, hanging drapes, cleaning out the garage, taking care of Toddler Ninja and more! Thank goodness for weekends with Nanna & Pappa.
With regards to our house guests we do want to show them a good time and plan to take them to Galluci’s for some authentic Italian pasta & sauce ingredients, perhaps a trattoria in Little Italy a stop at the art museum and this weekends annual Cleveland Garlic Festival in Shaker Square.
The festival runs Saturday from noon to 9pm and again Sunday from noon to 6pm in the center of Shaker Square. The Cleveland Garlic Festival is the Annual Fundraiser for North Union Farmers Market and its charitable programs. Every year, North Union Farmers Market brings fresh and local produce to over 350,000 local shoppers, including the weekly Saturday morning market at the Square.
This years festival features great music (Sim Ross & the Redemption) incredible food (garlic ice cream by Mitchell’s Ice Cream) and other fun festival happenings such as “Miss Garlic 2016!” It’s gonna be a great neighborhood celebration of awesome people, an incredible organization and of course…GARLIC!
