You might have recently heard about the return of a few things: Pumpkin Spice Lattes. The Muppets. (Sidenote: SO EXCITED.) And especially for Clevelanders, The Flats. Adding to the fun of its return, Punch Bowl Social made its home nearby and Clevelanders, you better be ready for some fun.

More about Punch Bowl Social (all from their website):

  • EAT: What we are looking to do with our cuisine, is not necessarily make it more ‘health conscience’, but incorporate more nutritional ingredients, super foods, although they may be lighter, heartier dishes that bring meaning back to the very basic concept of food consumption.
  • DRINK: As we come to new markets we pull inspiration from the local culture’s energy and thirst, as well as its culinary scene. We choose high-quality local products and use local purveyors to reflect our commitment to joining the community. We want you to thoroughly enjoy your experience at Punch Bowl Social and taste our inspiration for yourself!
  • SOCIAL: including bowling, darts, billards, marbles, ping pong, shuffle board, vintage arcade games and private karaoke.*

*my question — who would want the private karaoke though?! #onceagleekalwaysagleek
