The annual Playhouse Square event Jump Back Ball was this weekend and to say it was a fantastic night is an understatement. Let’s just review:
My feet still hurt.
My ears are ringing.
I can’t move from my couch.
I sang and danced to Taylor Swift on stage with my friend Carrie.
Epic Night to say the least. With a slight change in plans, my friend since high school Jessica joined me for the evening. With a stop at Charles Scott Salon for a hair style from Tina (more on this later), Jessica did my makeup before we were off for a night of yummy food and drinks, hanging with friends, and dancing the night away.
The evening featured a VIP party with music and food from Dante. The little bites were delicious (especially the soup). From there, we were escorted into the Palace Theater for some drinks (including speciality cocktails based on the theme – James Bond) and food from Driftwood Restaurants and Catering. I gotta say – Chef Hodge and his team were on point. The food was great and service was even better (and I’m not just saying that because Chris is a friend).
Entertainment included a palm reader and fortune teller (who had Jessica and I dying of laughter) and music on stage from Your Villain My Hero. People were dancing the evening away. As the evening continued on, we were all escorted into the lobby (which had a wonderful champagne bar which we used to hydrate with) to dance and sing with Pop Rocks. For a good hour and a half, we were at the front of the stage singing and dancing (including to Call Me Maybe!!)
To say this was a great night out seems like not enough. This event, with funds going to help support the Playhouse Square, brings out so many Clevelanders who want to support the arts in Cleveland. As an avid visitor to Playhouse Square, I can’t imagine our city without the theater district. Jump Back Ball is just one way to give back.
