the new Spotted Owl


Happy Monday everyone. Hope you had great November weekends. Ours was pretty nice, quiet but nice. Friday we went to an awesome house party filled with a lot of great Cleveland personalities, Saturday I hit up Harness Cycle for a challenging ride then headed into my studio to get a jump on the week. The rest of the day we stayed in to hang with Baby Ninja, do a bit of housework and other grown up things (can we say “make a budget?”) Sunday I went to the Art Museum to see the film Advance Style which was awesome, hit up Crocker Park for a weeks worth of Trader Joe’s and a bit of Baby Gap! All in all a great Northeast Ohio weekend.


Last week my Mom visited us to hang out with her Grandson “Baby Ninja” and help us out a few days with childcare. It was awesome having her around the house. I wish we had family that lived closer…for those of you that DO…make sure they know how thankful you are for them. One of the best perks of having “Nanna” visit is that Mr. C and I got to go out, sitter-free on a school night. Super fun!


We decided to explore the relatively new Spotted Owl nestled in the neighborhood of Tremont. The bar feels like you’ve transported yourself to an adorable British pub, every detail so perfect. The wood bar, counters and furniture seems like it has been there for a very long time while from what I can gather it is all new construction. The stained glass windows that were made for the space, seem like they were rescued from an old ministry. The wallpaper, bar menu’s and glassware, every detail was accounted for…seriously lovely.

For my evening pick, I chose a “You Guys are Indian, Right?” a bit of a traditional Manhattan  with a touch a citrus. It was so delicious, I am still sorta craving another one now.


Next time you get a “free” school night out I would totally advise you to pop into Spotted Owl, pull a stool up to the bar and explore their extensive drink menu. You won’t be disappointed.
