Turning Thirty seemed scary but with friends like mine, there was no way this weekend was going to get me down! A fun filled weekend with Cleveland sports, friends, family and drinks helped to bring in the 30’s better than I could have imagined.
The weekend was off to a great start with happy hour with coworkers, drinks with Matt and the Cavs game. It was almost like it was Matt’s birthday when he got to meet one of his favorite Clevelanders – my girl Cavs Nicole!
After recovering from a slight hangover and after brunch with the ‘rents, I got spoiled by Ashley and her crew at Sephora. Ladies, if you ever need assistance with makeup, etc., make sure to check Ashley and her crew out. She’s one of the nicest people I know!
There was really only one place that I wanted to bring in my 30th at and that was at Hodge’s Cleveland with some of my closest friends. With Dirty 30 Martinis, new entrees on the birthday menu, laughs with Chris and a well-lit birthday cake, I couldn’t have asked or wished for anything more. Post-dinner, we made our rounds on east 4th (aka my favorite place in CLE) including the new Society Lounge. Think Velvet Tango Room in Downtown CLE. It is a perfect new location for cocktails.
Sunday, again post-hangover, I was lucky to be in the Indians Social Suite for the Tribe game against Chicago. Again, more friends, more laughs and more beer. Have you sat in the social suite before? If not, totes recommend it! There’s nothing better than a great view of Nick Swisher at one of the best stadiums in MLB.
All in all – not a bad weekend (and I even had a Monday Funday with clients/friends at the Cavs game).
And definitely the best way to bring in the Dirty 30s!
(p.s. huge hug to Matt for coming in for my 30th Bday! Cleveland was happy to have you!)
