i was at the theater last night! (said with my best slow snobby english accent)
my tia jo invited me to a great lakes theater festival showing of "alls well that ends well" by the one and only shakespeare. ya know that old british dude?
well i was pleasantly surprised with how much i truly enjoyed the play. i kept expecting them to burst into random song though. i am just so used to going to see musicals.
a laughed really hard when i kept staring at one of the lead guys and i was like why the heck does he look so familiar? yeah, he was in the soap opera passions. i'm not ashamed to admit that i used to watch it. well, maybe i am little bit. but really, how does one go from "passions" to shakespeare with the great lakes theater festival??
it got a tad bit slow at the end but all in all i would give it a B+, cause i am such an esteemed theater critic (also said with my best slow snobby english accent, old chap).
prior to the play my tia jo and i went and checked out bricco on euclid and e 14th. now i had been to the bricco in akron a couple of times so i kinda knew what to expect. but we both were very impressed with the menu and the extensive wine list.
the best part though was how reasonable the prices were. they had CHEAP bottles of wine, like $15 and $18 bucks. that is unheard of! and all the more reason why i will go back with my wino friends.
my tia jo and i split a bottle of wine, an appetizer and both got a pasta dish. unfortunately my pasta wasn't prepared correctly and i actually sent it back (which i NEVER do), and they immediately took it off of our bill. which was the right thing to do. the customer service was on point for sure.
i would go there again, and it is quite the perfect spot for someone traveling in from anywhere in northeast ohio because you can take in bricco before or after any of the events at playhouse square because their kitchen is open late.
so check it out people!
it was a wonderfully fun date night with my aunt and i would do it again.
but now it is a beautiful thursday in cleveland and that means time for happy hour with the downtown family. it should turn into an interesting night. cheers!
