  Some fall Friday ramblings!!!


Can we get a huge round of cheer “HOORAY” for our Cleveland Indians!!! Way to go guys, we are so proud of you. Thank you for another awesome reason to celebrate living in CLEVELAND. World Series here we come!!!

Last night we took Ninja Toddler to the Ringling Brothers Circus at the Q. It was seriously so, so cool. While they may have retired the elephants, there was plenty of other exciting action to keep us all super entertained and at the edge of our seat the whole show. The opening act of all the acrobats walking on the moon was so visually incredible, it was perfect for kids and us older kids. :) The circus is in town until the 23rd. Get your tickets and don’t miss out.

Can we even just talk about Barrio Tacos and pumpkin spice lattes? Last week we took a lunch outing over to the Barrio Lakewood and I can’t stop thinking about it. Their chips, salsa, margaritas and my made-to-order taco was so yummy. If you haven’t been to one of their locations, seriously run don’t walk…unless you feel like running by a coffee shop and sipping a sweet, spicy pumpkin spice latte instead? Either way tacos or latte’s, this fall has been filled with so many awesome indian summer patio days, I am super thankful.

Have you heard about all of the fun that the team over at GroundSwell & Harness Cycle have been whipping up? Their pop up rides and yoga-about-town have been making waves all over the city…big, beautiful, inspiring waves! If you are interested in trying out one of their pop up rides or yoga classes; visit their site and reserve your spot! Just yesterday they hosted a few rides at the House of Blues…next up, the Rock Hall! See you in the saddle friends.

Thinking about your holiday shopping yet? I am planning on picking up a few of my gifts at this years Poinsettia Place presented by the Junior League of Cleveland at The Glidden House, Saturday November 19th. Support local small makers and entrepreneurs as they kick off holiday shopping season with special offerings all while enjoying brunch and a few mimosas with your friends. For more information visit their site to grab your tickets while there are a still few available.

Speaking of holiday shopping…I also just recently got the date of the Cleveland Institute of Art, holiday student sale!!! It kicks off Friday, December 2nd and runs through the weekend. I have been to this sale before and it literally always has great, affordable work for everyone. For location and time details visit their page here.

So, while this wasn’t a typical post from me I just thought I would ramble on a bit and touch base and say “hi!” Have a great weekend. Stay warm…time to bust out the warm sweaters & scarves. Happy Friday, Happy weekend everyone!

  New Eats at Progressive Field

IMG_2731Hey Cleveland, happy friday! Hope your week was amazing and that your weekend plans are shaping up nicely. We have sort of a light commitment weekend, although our house is in desperate need of a good cleaning including a good scrub down of some of our outdoor living space. Power washing here we come!


The other day, I had the opportunity to go to a Tribe day and it was  the perfect day for a game. Not too hot, not too windy, just right. Last summer I was  tending to our newborn-Ninja Max and not able to get to any games, this was my first one at the renovated stadium.

Upon arrival, I was pretty impressed at all of the new dining options avilable. In “The District” there are a handful of small stands offering everything from mini hotdog trios to tacos and grilled cheese. The options were so much more than the standard hotdog and nachos options…of course you could still enjoy these too.

IMG_2729We actually split a L’Albatros burger from Dynomite Burgers and honestly it was a really good burger. Way better than I had expected it to be, I was impressed. Of course as a Zach Bruell restaurant I wouldn’t expect anything less, he always “hits it out of the park!”
(sorry, I couldn’t help it! Ha!)



Next time you have the opportunity to catch a game and want to get something good, don’t worry about having to stop somewhere first, there are plenty of new options available at the park. Everything from tacos and nachos to gourmet burgers and homemade ice cream, you won’t be disappointed!

Have a great weekend everyone. Go Tribe! Go weekends!
