  Winter weekend at home + happenings

Hey Cleveland. Everybody staying nice and warm? I mean..while I’m typically not one to complain about the weather…please Mother Nature, anything above 0 degrees would be welcome!

Over the weekend I had a visitor from the big apple and while we spent most of our time huddled up around the fireplace we did get out on the town a bit.

Kicking off the girls weekend, we hit up Jack Flaps for a totally indulgent brunch of Lemon Curd Pancakes and the PB& J French Toast. Then we did a bit of thrift shopping, grocery shopping (West Side Market & Park to Shop Asian Market) and with one glass of vino from Deagans headed home to settle in for the winter hibernation. But enough about my weekend…let’s talk about this upcoming week…

It’s a big week here in the 216. Lots of fun, fundraisers and parties about town. Wednesday night kicks off the fun with the second annual Hunger Network of Clevelands “All about the Bag!” party. Congrats to Missy Krause, she won a pair of tickets to the evening soirée! Missy, email me for details. For those of you who still need tickets, visit their site NOW!

Then there is the annual Playhouse Square bash on Saturday evening…the 24th annual Jump Back Ball celebration. I’ve got my sparkly dress how about you guys? While tickets may be sold out I believe you can find a few for sale on Craigs List, check it out.

So while the weekend might have been full of lounging, lattes and a bit of baby play, this week is all about getting dressed up and celebrating some of our local non profits. Happy Monday you guys. Chat real soon.

  Humble Wine Bar

So many new places opening up in the CLE over the last few months…it’s hard to keep on top of all the amazing entrepreneurs, chefs and super creative Clevelanders, but here is another!

Humble_1Congrats to Dan Deagan (of Deagans Kitchen & Bar) and his crew on last week’s opening of the LOVELY Humble Wine Bar. The interior space is simply perfection, the wine on tap is a unique addition to the neighborhood, the warm nuts and olive bowl; a great bar treat and the staff were all very warm and welcoming.
