Saturday I hit up the Flea with a pit stop into the Indigo Imp Brewery. Thanks to the owners for mixing up this creative fall shandy for me…part Old City Soda in Grapefruit and part Blonde Bomshell, makes a wonderful fall afternoon treat. Never been to Indigo Imp? Check out their listing of brewery events to find out when you can swing in for a sample of their small batch brews.
If you weren’t able to hit up the flea, the Sunday Market in Hingetown hits West 29th and Detroit this upcoming weekend…Sunday from 10am-4pm. I am planning on stopping by the parisian-style street fest post Harness Cycle’s first annual “Running the Bridges” road race. While I am not planning on actually running the race (not there yet,) Baby Ninja and I are going to cruise along with the baby jogger and enjoy being out and about in downtown CLE. Are you interested in the race? Check out the registration page to secure your spot.
To continue the fall weekend fun we packed the car with a few 8 year olds and headed south to explore Mapleside Farms and their fall festival. If you’ve never been it truly is a magical fall experience. From Corbo’s apple fritters to a massive “bounce cloud” (think bounce house without walls on sand) to all sorta of apples and don’t forget elaborate face painting and a paintball zombie hayride. If you are looking for a well-oiled, fall festival machine (plus a few caramel apples) head down to the farm this upcoming weekend, fingers crossed for another great weather weekend.
While the weekend was amazing, I’m really looking forward to this upcoming weekend farm dinner with friends at the Spice Acres Farm nestled in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park. The proceeds from this dinner will go to help the Bebenroth Family as they repair and “grow” the farm. You can either buy tickets to the entire dinner or for just the after hours bonfire and marshmallow roast. For details visit the event brite page and to learn more about their efforts watch their kickstarter video, it is so well done.
So needless to say, it was a busy and fun fall weekend…but if you are looking to immerse yourself in the fall fun, there is still plenty to look forward to. Go get your apples and pumpkins on. Happy fall everyone.
