In case you didn't know

Tonight marks the second month of the Summer Restaurant Tour here in Cleveland. This is a great fundraiser that donates a certain percentage of your bill at some of the hottest local area restaurants to the GLBT ( Gay Lesbian Bisexual Transgender community center of Greater Cleveland). For instance, if you go to The Old Angle Tavern on W.25th street tonight and say you are with the STR (summer restaurant tour) they will donate 40% of your bill to the cause. Some of the restaurants that will be participating this month include Boulevard Blue, Parallax, Momocho and The Grovewood Tavern. For more information check out the site here.

Tomorrow, unless you live under a rock you know that the 1st annual Kuyahoga Festival will be going on at Blossom. The gates open @ 3pm with local indie poppers Six Parts Seven kicking off the side stage @ 3:15pm. Unfortunately, Blossom only allows you to bring camaras when you are going to see the Cleveland Orchestra, so sadly Ryan will not be able to take any of his awesome photos. Regardless, I am looking forward to seeing The Flaming Lips for the first time and to finally getting to see what all the hype surrounging Sound Team and The Go! Team is about.

Lastly, this Sunday August 6th and the following Sunday August 13th the "Walk and Roll Cleveland" event will be taking place. This event takes place from 11am - 5pm on MLK drive for a 2.1 mile stretch it will allow all of us here in C-town to have the opportunity to walk this stretch of road and appreciate the beauty of the area that is often missed out on. Many people here in C-town do not ever explore the amazing Cultural Gardens located in his area now is your chance to do so. Some of the activities that will you can participate while at this great event will be: an Ultimate Frisbee Tournament, Yoga + Tai Chi, Chalk festival, Music and a History of the Cultural Gardens.
