a couple of CLE announcements...

Friday, February 26, 2010

- this morning i'll be attending the locally organized TEDXCLE event at the capitol theater where i'll be listening to speakers and discussing such cleveland centered topics like health care, urban revitalization, art, and product development - can't wait!

- if you aren't going to PlayhouseSquare's Jump Back Ball this upcoming saturday i highly recommend you checking out the Brite Winter Festival from 5 to 10 in the flats. there will be music, art exhibits, food and snow games like giant skeeball, ice bocce ball, chalkboard graffiti and bridge war snowball fight reenactment. there will be a lot of snow this weekend to say the least so it's going to be a winter wonderland! see the below flyer for additional information.

- i'm still raising money for the crisis nursery Providence House, as a one time $16 dollar donation will help shelter and tuck in a baby in crisis tonight. i got an update as to how much money we've raised and i KNOW we can do better! help me reach my goal of 160 $16 donations by march 16th - thanks in advance, hint hint...

- cleveland international film festival members can start purchasing their tickets to CIFF today, which is a just one the excellent reasons to become a member!

- the whole "cleveland is the most miserable city in america" has ended up having some good effects on the city of cleveland specifically the community coming together to refute the claim. the "cleveland says, no thanks forbes magazine" group i created on facebook has over 1,500 fans and was mentioned in the plain dealer yesterday - very cool stuff!

- positively cleveland has also created a site called what the forbes as an answer to the dreaded miserable city moniker where they are asking residents to share why they are #HappyinCLE and giving away a few ridiculously AMAZING prize packages in the process - ENTER TODAY HERE.

- have an EXCELLENT weekend kids, stay warm from the cold, and have a drink on me.

  3. Sounds like a full, busy weekend. Have a great time at the Jump Back Ball, Happy Weekend!

  4. i don't think i can make the Brite Winter Festival as i'll be noming on some awesome food at Lola for Restaurant Week. but i'll be out after that...what bar will you have a tab open that i can have a drink on you?
