Okay, it’s Friday and you’ve basically already started the weekend. So, what do you do? Don’t even try to tell me that there is nothing going on, as Memorial Day weekend is one of the most jam packed weekends of the year. I don’t know about you, but with all this gorgeous weather lined up I can’t help but think that I should head to Edgewater Lakefront Reservation to start getting my tan on.
After I burn, because let’s face it, after six months of zero sunlight my skin is going to be a bit confused, I still have the rest of the weekend open. There are so many different festivals and events going on this weekend, I’m not sure how I’m going to be able to choose. Here are some of the happenings around town.
CAVS Watch Party at The Q | May 27
I think the entire city is nervous with anticipation over the outcome of game 6. If you haven’t been before, the watch parties during the playoffs are almost as good as being at the game itself. They show the game on the jumbo tron, have live entertainment, games, and food and drinks. How many times do you just look at the jumbo tron when you’re at the game anyway? Tickets are free, but you do need to reserve them in advance here! Tip-off is at 8:30 p.m.
MOCA Opening Night Party & Concert | May 27
Who doesn’t love a free party and concert? Head to the uber-trendy Uptown neighborhood and celebrate with the Modern Museum of Contemporary Art as the Myopia and Abberations exhibits open. Mark Mothersbaugh of Myopia will be there in person and performing as well!
Tidal Cool Runway Show | May 27
If you’re looking to add a little bit of fashion to your weekend, you should check out Tidal Cool’s Spring/Summer Fashion Show at Lake Affect Studios. Tickets are less than $20 and proceeds benefit Nature’s Bin. The Tidal Cool spring/summer collection is called Cuba Libre, which brings the rhythm of the Caribbean to the heart of Cleveland. Event starts at 7 p.m.
Taste of Summer at Flats East Bank | May 27 – 29
What better way to kick-off the summer than to check out this new event, taking over the Flats East Bank all weekend long? Not only can you take advantage of the local eats (Coastal Taco opens on Friday!) but there will be two stages with live music, craft cocktails, corn hole and other fun activities for all ages. Plus, you can check out the new water taxi if you want to go back and forth across the river.
Tremont Greek Festival | May 27-30
Get your Greek on at the annual Greek Festival located in Tremont. Pretend that you’ve been transported to the Greek Isles as you enjoy Greek food, drinks and entertainment all weekend long.
