After packing my suitcases, I’m off for a 10 day drive around the Northeast. From New Jersey and Philly to Virginia, I can’t wait to catch up with friends and family all over the place.
The only thing that I’m a little sad to miss is Cleveland Marathon Weekend because I was hoping to run in the 5K tomorrow.

REMINDER: You could win a $100 gift certificate to Provenance at the Cleveland Museum of Art. Check out my restaurant review and giveaway which ends Friday at noon.
Each June, the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo kicks off summer with a fantastic dinner, cocktails, and dancing under the warm night sky.
More than just a party with the animals, ZippityZooDoo has also been raising money for the last 40 years for the Zoo’s educational initiatives - making it Cleveland’s longest running benefit.
For instance, the live auction at last year’s ZippityZooDoo raised over $51,000 in Zoo scholarships - providing Summer Day Camp scholarships, free lunches, and ZooBus trips to 25,000 students.
Mushroom and Leek Cake at Cleveland Museum of Art’s Provenance
With the expansion of the East Wing, the renovation of the 1916 galleries, and the addition of the beautiful Ames Atrium, the Cleveland Museum of Art has been elevated in recent years from a revered cultural institution to a work of art itself.
To complement the stunning renovation, the Museum has also rolled out community programming like its interactive, 12,000-square-foot Gallery One and monthly MIX Nights.
It was hard to think of anything that could make the Cleveland Museum of Art even better, until Provenance opened at the end of 2012.
