GIVEAWAY: Pier W’s Copper River Salmon Run/Walk 5K

After a good cardio session, I crave some serious protein. Turns out one of Cleveland’s best restaurants has the same craving after running, so they combined their love of seafood and physical activity for everyone’s enjoyment!

GIVEAWAY: Dazzle the District with PlayhouseSquare

As the majority of my time is spent in the suburbs, I’m always excited when I have a chance to venture downtown.  As a part of my day job, I find myself in the upper stories of the Hanna Building regularly. On a recent visit in early April, I snapped this photo of Star Plaza over looking the Theater District.

Overlooking PlayhouseSquare

If you haven’t been in the area recently, you’ll notice some very big additions to the neighborhood. There’s the large signage that has been added over Euclid Avenue and East 14th Street, creating a welcoming entrance in any direction as you head toward the lights along one of Cleveland’s main thoroughfares.

Then you’ll notice that new feature in the bottom right corner of the photo. As you may have heard already, PlayhouseSquare is building the world’s largest outdoor chandelier – the GE Chandelier. This will include dramatic lights, video signage, elegant gateways and a “retro” sign inspired by PlayhouseSquare’s 1920s-era roots. So with something so special going in, why not throw a community event to celebrate all that?
