Weekend Fun in the CLE

I know that there is still one day left this weekend, but we have packed enough fun into the last two days that I am ready to call it quits. The summer events in Cleveland just don't stop, and we've been spreading ourselves pretty thin the last several weeks. But I just can't say no to some of my favorite events, and some new finds as well.

Friday night, "R" and I attended our fourth Twilight at the Zoo. As usual, the event was sold out and thousands enjoyed live music from 18 bands, buffet food, all-you-can-drink beer and wine, and exploring the zoo grounds. It's always fun to see the animals out and about as the event gets started. We had a blast, and I already can't wait for next year.
I always run into people I know at this event, and the evening traditionally ends with me dancing in the grass with quite a buzz and my shoes off. The zoo sure knows how to throw a good party!

Our weekend fun didn't stop there. Saturday brought the Sausage Fest at Sachsenheim Hall. In my original blog post, I had promised you yummy sausage, all-you-can-drink beer from four local breweries, and great people watching. I'm happy to say that the event delivered all of that, and so much more. It lived up to my expectations, and I'd go next year in a heartbeat.
You should join us! Also, check out their Taco Tuesday because all of their sausages (made in-house) are offered as meat choices. Personally, I loved the Meech, Currywurst, and Ancho Chicken. The many kinds of house-made mustard also won us over. I woke up this morning still dreaming of sausage, and I don't even like sausage very much. (I don't think I've ever said the word "sausage" so much in my life)

Today brings errands, organizing a storage unit, and drafting our wills...the fun is over.

What did you do this weekend? Krusty's Summer Sauce Camp, Vintage Ohio Wine Festival? The options were endless.

I have been to twilight once a few years ago and it was so much fun. Perfect weather night too!
