Wednesday, July 16: The 17th annual Walk and Dine in the Gateway District. What better way to explore the city of Cleveland, than to preview the appealing downtown living options and new downtown developments. The event starts at 5:30 p.m. at costs $60 (if bought in advance). The ticket price is well worth it though, because you are not only supporting the Gateway District but you also get free food and alcoholic beverages as you tour the new Heinen’s at The 9, Residences at 1717 and other fabulous locations. You’ll be one of the first to check out these amazing new buildings that are being renovated!
Thursday, July 17: Old Brooklyn Pierogi Fest. If you’ve read my blog before, you know my serious love for pierogies. Pierogi Fest happens this Thursday on Pearl Road, next to Mr. E’s Inn in downtown Old Brooklyn! Besides the obvious food choices there will also be live music and local vendors!
Friday, July 18: Cleveland Irish Cultural Festival at the Cuyahoga County Fairgrounds. This event actually takes place all weekend, and costs $12 to get in. Whether you are Irish or not, celebrate the Irish Heritage with live music, drinks, food and more!

Sunday, July 20: The 12th annual Taste of Tremont. Stop by the historic Tremont neighborhood between 12 p.m. and 8 p.m. to sample tasty treats from all the hip Tremont restaurants. Perhaps my favorite thing about the Taste of Tremont, beyond the food and drinks and live entertainment, is that Banyan Tree has a huge sale each year. You can get jewelry and scarves for $5! Be sure you don’t grab all the good stuff until I get there!
