i was made in the 216

i can’t say it enough. and i don’t care if it starts to annoy you. i love living in cle. this past weekend was a blast. let’s recap.

friday night included yet another outing with the “party people” crew. the usual suspects were involved (the nug, robby, jeremiah and rick). lots of libation and lots of fun.

saturday started slow but i was pumped for the made in the 216 event. we began the afternoon in my hood at latitude 41 with robby for a goodbye breakfast. roberto is visiting the jolly old town of london and i am incredibly jealous.

in the evening, the beautiful dwags joined me and the nug for dinner at luxe. took a stroll to lakewood to the pop shop gallery for their $50 show. scored a fantastic skateboard piece. i highly recommend you get there as soon as the doors open. i would have bought at least 3 more pieces — if they weren’t already sold. afterwards, headed to made in the 216 and was very excited to see such a great turnout. once again — great artists and inspiration

home sweet home.

being part of the detroit shoreway revitalization has been similar to watching a child grow up. i feel like i am part of something special and i greatly admire the hard work that so many talented local ambassadors put into their communities. if i were to name names, i would be talking about matt zone and danielle deboe. you guys are truly incredible.

after dwags left, i had to make a pit stop at CPT for the final hurrah (aka dance party). the fabulous zone family (beth, matt, madelyn, etc.) were present as well as cle all-star jseabury (my tan-off competition). the party was a blast. i think i laughed about a million times. and the sweat was pouring in gallon increments (from dancing of course). one last stop was made at stone mad where i finally got to meet eileen, who owns this stunning jewel on 65th. if you haven’t seen this place (including the lower level bathrooms) you must go. the craftsmanship is unreal.

sunday funday was spent in youngstown with the stevens family. while i am not the biggest fan of ytown, i was excited to see the whole gang. plus, the food at the graduation party was pretty darn impressive.

so that was my weekend. i hope yours was amazeballs.

another busy week is ahead and tomorrow i will be attending the premiere of “hot in cleveland” hosted by tower city and positively cleveland. that should be a good time. and maybe this is one step closer to a potential cameo appearance. have your people call my people.

word of the day – nice
