I’m such a party animal this week. I was out both Tuesday and Wednesday nights.
On Tuesday, we had the monthly gathering for the Ohio Bloggers Association. Instead of a scheduled activity, we met at The South Side in Tremont for dinner. We had most of their enclosed patio for our group. It was nice when we first arrived, but the room didn’t have good acoustics and it quickly got very loud and hard to chat once everyone had arrived.
It’s always nice to catch up with local bloggers and hear about what’s going on in the area. We did some mingling and when we sat down to order, we did a quick roundtable for introductions and announcements.
I ordered the pulled pork pita and a cup of chili. Both dishes were excellent, however the chili was quite spicy for my taste. We had close to 20 people and 2 servers who did a great job with our group.
Other bloggers in attendance:
- Alicia from Poise in Parma
- Amanda from Clue into Cleveland
- Crystal from Eat Drink Cleveland
- Holly from Rust Belt Runner
- Jen from Why CLE?
- John from Songs and Stories
- Julie from Am I There Yet
- Kimberly from SMITTEN…in Cleveland
- Nadine from Blog the New Black
- Sarah from Cooker Girl
- Stuart from sosAssociates
- Tammy from Miss WineOH
I sat near Jen, Kimberly, Nadine, Julie and Tammy. It was nice to chat, meet and catch up with them. Next month is a virtual blog swap. We’ll be paired with another blogger and exchange guest posts. It should be fun!
Last night, after we enjoyed the Cleveland Museum of Natural History, I headed to Brothers Lounge in Lakewood. I’ve been taking the docent class at the museum and one of my classmates plays trumpet in M2B2, specializing in big band music that was playing. I met up with 3 other classmates to hear the band. I also had the burger special for a late dinner.
The band was fun and reminded me of when I played in jazz band. I’ve always enjoyed music and last night was no exception. Oh, and if you ever go to the Brothers Lounge, they have some painted renditions of a few artists on the walls. Included are Phil Collins, Mick Jagger, Jimmy Hendrix, and Gregg Allman. Trust me, everyone will want to figure out the photos and you can stump them with Gregg Allman. We asked several people that worked there and finally our friend in the band found out for us.
After two nights out in a row, I volunteered to guard at the pool at 5:15AM this morning. I’m beat and definitely crashing early tonight.
