Don't Miss Ingenuity Today

If you haven't gotten down to Cleveland's annual Ingenuity Festival yet, then don't miss your last chance today. This weekend-long festival features hundreds of live performances (of all kinds), exhibits, interactive displays, and a new addition this year- the man-made waterfall. The festival is free (a $5 donation is suggested), and is held in the depths of the Detroit Superior Bridge. As you literally wander through the bridge, artists and performers will trigger all of your senses. It can be a bit overwhelming at times, but it is quite a sight to be seen. The view is really one of a kind- our city makes a gorgeous backdrop. There is still quite a lot going on this afternoon, so get your butt down there if you haven't already!

I also wanted to apologize for the brief hiatus from the blog. I've been having some trouble with my lower back, and have been horizontal on the couch for 8 days. It makes it very hard to type, or really do anything for that matter. Surgery will be coming up in a few weeks. Blech. But I'm back to work tomorrow, and I've got several fun things on the horizon for you. I'm attending the Flavors of Northeast Ohio event tomorrow evening. The event benefits the American Liver Foundation, and 21 local chefs are creating a 5-course meal table-side. I have the pleasure of sitting at Chef Ben Bebenroth of Spice of Life Catering's table (Mmmm, he's a fantastic chef), and acting as a Table and Menu Judge to decide which chef will win an award for their outstanding table presentation and overall menu planning. I can't wait!

Also, Cleveland Beer Week is just around the corner, and I've got two tickets to their signature Brewzilla event to give away. Keep your eyes peeled- the contest will be coming soon.

I was at ingenuity on Friday; such a fun event! I'm so mad at myself for not checking this out I past years!!

I'm so sorry to hear about your back problems. OUCH!! I have a friend who had back surgery twice and while it wasn't fun at first, it was worth it all once she was all recovered. Hang in there!!! Your readers will be rooting for you!
