It’s been sorta insane at work with some extra hours every few days, but when you have coworkers/friends that make you moscow mules and make you laugh so hard that your stomach aches during a proofreading session, you really can’t complain.
And this weather really could not have been more perfect….in the middle of the work week it meant heading to a Tribe game with friends. Gorgeous weather, a few beers, great company and a Tribe win – this is what summer nights in CLE are made of.
Thursday, after cocktails and dinner with a former coworker, I happened to catch this awesome Cleveland sunset. I love being just a block away from Lake Erie.
Saturday night a group of friends and I headed out to the ‘burbs for dinner at Cork and Cleaver. It was all of our first time there and we were not disappointed. We had a great time just on the drive there so we knew dinner would be filled with laughs and good times. I ordered the gnocchi and seriously could not have had a better meal. The lamb was cooked to perfection and the drinks were delicious. Chef Adam spoiled us a little after seeing us struggle with what dessert to get and sent out this lineup:
Sunday’s weather allowed for an epic Sunday Funday which started with Cleveland Flea in Hingetown. Kevin, Erin, Alex and I spent the morning wandering around, visiting a few of our favorite booths and I picked myself up a new CLE necklace which I’m so glad I talked myself into purchasing (let’s be honest though – it wasn’t that hard).
Next up was a full day of being at Lago. The Lago patio is the perfect place to spend a day with friends, having drinks and just enjoying the weather (even if we all did get a little burned). From Lago we were off to Reddstone for a quick drink, then to Luxe for dinner and finally back to Lago for a glass or two of wine and more time hanging out. I couldn’t have asked for a better Sunday Funday.
How did you enjoy the Cleveland weather and the long weekend?
Disclaimer: The Indians are a client of the agency I work for, hence those killer seats. I also assist Lago with their social media efforts but of course choose to hang out with those people.
