first off, did you witness the in-tenseness of the sky last night? this mysterious, copper hue filled the air around 9ish, combined with bright white clouds and a couple rainbows. very surreal.
anywho…where did this weekend go? my weekend basically consisted of bday celebrations. friday night started at reddstone, where i ordered yet another turkey panini. this spot is quickly becoming one of my neighborhood favorites.
next, the clan headed over to the speakeasy at mcnulty’s bier markt for moe’s 30th. she def does not look 30. but she is 30. which basically means you are no longer a young adult. you are now a for realz kind of adult. can you sense the bitterness? i say this because i will be turning the big 3-0 sooner than later.
the last stop of the night was the flying monkey in tremont, which was HOT. and by hot, i mean sticky, humid, damp, moist hot. nonetheless, the night still ended with an impromptu dance party. thank you “omg” by usher.
the majority of saturday was spent with the family for my aunt dana’s bday. we started at l’albatros, which is still my absolute favorite restaurant in this city. again, the service and food was excellent.
we hopped over to my neighborhood for some libations at stone mad. props to eileen and pete for the new fountain on the patio. it looks great! also spent some more quality time at the painters lofts (my place) for some more laughs and bonding. i love my family.
in the heat of the night on friday, lzone decided a sunday funday would be a wise decision (this was also moe’s actual bday). we all agreed. this was actually my first time at the sunset grille on whiskey island. and if i had to describe it in one word, that word would be “eclectic”. there were your obvious boaters, mixed in with hipsters, country folk and urban professionals. if you want to people watch, you need to get down to this place. you will not be disappointed.
it’s going to be another beautiful week in cle. the weather is looking promising and so is the week ahead. if you haven’t made your fourth of july plans, you better get on that!
word of the day – captain
