I promised Scott another evening of me being the designated driver and he promised me another sonnet after the response to last week’s blog post. Enjoy!
Even without the Great Lakes Science Center’s Beer Goggles, their Home Brew event was a lot of fun
I am a big fan of the Great Lakes Science Center. Every time I go I have a great time. It’s an awesome space filled with experiments and exhibits…

Many reflections on love focus on the falling into it. That first attraction. The squishy feeling of butterflies in your stomach. The anticipation of a first kiss or date.
That’s my least favorite part of love.
Sure, I enjoy the occasional rom-com (especially if a British…
Scott and I decided to switch things up at Grapes & Ale this year. I’d be the designated driver, and he’d have an opportunity to sample all of the wine. The only catch? That he’d write the recap.
Colin Dussault’s Acoustic Side Project greeted people near the stadium’s entrance.
Nestled at the corner of 9th and Carnegie, there’s just something about Progressive Field that I really enjoy. I’m a…
I love four day weekends but it was rough getting going this morning. Now that I’ve had my coffee, let’s jump right in with the Luau on the Lake giveaway winner!
After removing one duplicate entry and placing the rest in Random.org, congratulations to entry #44, Holly, for winning 2 VIP tickets to Luau on the Lake! Please reply to my email by the end of Tuesday to confirm you can still attend.
The mayflies have come and gone and the July 4th holiday is here. In the Hicken house, this means it’s time to start making plans for the rest of summer.
I don’t care what else I do between now and September – Twilight at the Zoo is my big must-do for this summer.
After scheduling conflicts kept us from going in previous years, Scott and I made sure last summer’s Twilight at the Zoo stayed open…
You’re lounging with a view of the water, frosty beer or fruity umbrella drink in hand. You can hear laughter coming from a Conga line and smell the spices of a delicious beachside feast. Maybe you’ll take in a game of beach volleyball later.
Sounds like a fantastic afternoon, doesn’t it?
Fortunately, you don’t need to hop on a plane to a tropical locale to enjoy it. On July 12, you only have…
I’ve been on the road the past week, so this bit of blogkeeping is belated. Congratulations to Elizabeth P for winning 2 tickets to the Tri-C JazzFest!
One of my favorite beer pairing events was Great Lakes Brewing Company’s comic books and beer night
When I hear the phrase “beer pairings,” my thoughts – as yours probably do – immediately go to beer and food. From cheese and chocolate to bacon,…
In its heyday, PlayhouseSquare played host to crooners, jazz and big bands musicians like Bing Crosby and ol’ Blue Eyes, Frank Sinatra.
Now, as PlayhouseSquare’s revitalization hits a dazzling high, Cleveland’s own jazz festival, the Tri-C JazzFest has unveiled a new format celebrating the district.
It’s the 35th anniversary of the Tri-C JazzFest and they’re making a big move – closing down…
Scott finds his perfect bench in Culpeper
I’ve gone fishing … Literally. While spending this week in Virginia, I plan on catching a flounder or two at my parents’ house.
We’ve enjoyed our vacation so far, hitting up a few new antique shops in Gordonsville and Fredericksburg, taking drives through the country and strolls through Culpeper. And I can’t wait to spend the next couple of days along…
