Summer fun in the CLE

Monday, June 20, 2011

Everybody works for the weekend and I think I successfully got as much out of my weekend that i possibly could.

Thursday, aka MOB's birthday, Seanski and I treated the birthday girl to a glorious lunch at Chinato. It was very delicious and reminded me how I need to get back there for dinner again very soon.

Thursday night CK and I took in a showing of Midnight in Paris at the Capitol Theater and we loooooooooved it. So good, so smart, so cute, sooooooo Woody Allen. Post movie we walked over to XYZ the Tavern for a cocktail and a small bite to eat. Successful Thursday, check.

Friday headed over to MOB and Pete's house in West Park for a little cookout action for MOB's birthday. We ate, we drank, we played with sparklers - can someone say summer?


My Cleveland UD girls - foxx, beaver, MOB, me, and muffin as we were about to take a birthday bomb.

Post party we headed to Public House where we danced to Enrique's Escape and acted like we were at Tim's. Beaver also may or may not have scared off Brown's head coach Pat Shurmur. You'll have that.

Saturday brought breakfast at home with CK, random errands, and a trip to one of Ohio City's newest retail shops Joy Machine's Bike Shop. This place is so damn cute, and I love the story behind it, so much so that I bought a bike pump (the wrong kind, whoops) but finally purchase a bern helmet which is on order and I'll get this week. Yay!

Saturday afternoon Seanski, CK and I biked into Lakewood for some patio day drinking at Buckeye Beer Engine with timmybennett/Katie, Moe/Mark, Colleen/Joe, Baucco, Cubby and Captain.

Timmybennett loves Mariah Carey, he even has the t-shirt to prove it.

We headed to Cropicana in the evening post Buckeye Beer Engine for fabulous people watching, where we ran into more friends like Kim, and ate a late dinner/4th meal. This was the first time I ate at Cropicana and while my fish tacos weren't what I expected I guess there were edible unlike CK's ribs which were charred to an inedible black crisp. I think I'll just stick to beers at Cropicana from now on...

Sunday brought an impromptu sunday funday in the
D-Sho with AJP where we enjoyed brunch/mojitos/berry isles at Luxe, a viewing of the Green Lantern in 3D at the Capitol Theater and dinner/beer/bubbles at XYZ the Tavern.

I could get used to summer weekends like these in Cleveland...

And to think I have Dinner in the Dark at Flying Fig tonight and the Tribe game tomorrow night.

Summa, summa, summa-time.

Happy Monday, kids!


  1. Cropicana was way overpriced for the quality of food. Bri and I agree with you!

  2. We were at Cropicana on Saturday too, but left around 5:30. It's a great summer spot, and having food and drinks available is awesome...but yeah it isn't quite the quality that I thought Schimoler would bring to it. I had the fish tacos too. While perfectly fine, there was just nothing that special about them. But I'll be back. :)

  3. oh how i love a good summery weekend. and sparklers? i mean yes. a million points for including sparklers in your weekend.

  4. damn girl, did you pencil in time for sleep? lol

    Was green lantern good? I guess it doesn't matter as long as ryan reynolds is the eye candy.

  5. Sounds like a fabulous busy weekend:)!!!

  6. the food leaves something to be desired at cropicana. who said you can't drink your dinner anyways?


Comments are cool. This is a fact.
