My Favorite Summer Weekend

This weekend is always one of my favorite summer weekends. "R" and I have attended Twilight at the Zoo for several years in a row now, and the promise of zoo animals, live music, endless buffets, and unlimited beer and wine leave me in anticipation for months. It's also the weekend of other well-known summer events. So even though I'll be out of town and missing it all, I decided to dedicate a post to this fantastic August weekend. It's one for the books!
Friday, August 5th- Twilight at the Zoo. Wind your way through the Zoo enjoying an assortment of complimentary food, beer, wine, and soft drinks. Dance under the stars to the rhythms of 17 bands playing Motown, rock, salsa, swing, country, and blues. 7-midnight. General admission = $75. Sorry, this event is Sold Out.

Friday, August 5th - Saturday, August 6th- Vintage Ohio Wine Festival. 1-10PM. Kirtland, OH.

Saturday, August 6th- Akron's Blues & Brews. One of Northeast Ohio's largest craft brew events, hosted by Thirsty Dog Brewing Co. and the Winking Lizard Tavern. Located at Lock 3 in Akron. From 2-6PM, sample more than 200 brews from over 75 different breweries, and enjoy live music and food from Winking Lizard. All proceeds benefit charity.

Saturday, August 6th- Krusty's Summer Sauce Camp. 20th Annual event hosted at Whiskey Island to benefit Cleveland's Malachi House. $60 at the door. Live music, food, and drinks.

So, I'll be in Put-in-Bay celebrating a friend's bachelorette party. Where will you be this weekend? Hopefully checking out at least one of these fantastic summer events!

Have fun in Put-in-Bay! I love this weekend, too. Sadly, we have to entertain some folks and can't attend any of the festivities either.
