Jump Back Two Spaces for Jump Back Ball 22

Jump Back Ball Set Up Day

Jump Back Ball Set Up Day at the State Theatre

Another Jump Back Ball has come and gone. After months of hard work from Jump Back Ball co-chairs Maurie and Samantha and their committees, this Saturday’s Jump Back Two Spaces was an incredible evening of food, friends and boardgame fun.

An early wakeup to head to the Foodbank had me thinking I wasn’t going to make it through the night. Fortunately, after a relaxing hair appointment with Melanie at Dino Palmieri, I was ready to go!

We started Jump Back Two Spaces at the VIP party in the Palace. Chef Jonathon Sawyer and his teams from Greenhouse Tavern and Noodlecat really shined – showcasing the incredible food you’ll find on both of their menus.

The pulled pork and slaw steamed bun and caviar on burrata cheese were my favorites. A salty burst of flavor from the caviar combined with the burrata’s rich, creaminess was a luxurious start to the evening.

After making our way to the State Theatre, we met up with the rest of our Clue gang - Kate (Green), Elizabeth (Scarlet), Sarah (White) and Brian (Mustard). Then Jen, Matt, Kimberly, Chris and a surprise appearance by Alicia and Hans rounded out the night (here’s Jen’s recap of Jump Back Ball).

We enjoyed the decorations, played a bit of Twister (I lost badly), rocked out to Velvet Shake (I danced badly), and took a lot of pictures of us acting silly.

It was a fitting end to Scott’s and my mini-vacation. I’ll be back later this week with the first half of our Cleveland theatre escape.

This is the final installment of my Jump Back Two Spaces series. Check out my previous posts:

Disclosure: I was asked by PlayhouseSquare to help promote this year’s Jump Back Ball. In exchange, I received one complimentary ticket. Opinions are my own.
