Why? Upcoming Events!

Well, CLE, we have lots to be thankful for this month! We’ve been enjoying some unseasonably amazing weather! And we have some pretty awesome upcoming events to take you up to your Thanksgiving holiday. Check these out:

This weekend at the IX Center is the Fabulous Food Show! Stroll through hundreds of vendors and demo stations, check out presentations and snag autographs from celebrity chefs, and more. Hometown favorite Michael Symon will be on hand, as well as Food Network dessert diva and CLE-native Anne Thornton (a high school classmate of mine who I’m so proud of!). Tickets start at $25 for general admission. If you like wine, the $10 Grand Tasting Pavilion tickets are totally worthwhile for some delicious vino served up by Cleveland Wine School grads.

Saturday, November 12 is the Sparx City Hop from 11am – 6pm. There will be free trolley tours touring CLE’s great neighborhoods – such as Tremont, the Warehouse District, Asia Town, and more. Hop off the trolley in each location and explore the neighborhood, tour buildings, shop, dine, and enjoy live entertainment. There will be a concert on Public Square, food trucks in Lincoln Park, and lots of other fun and unique activities along the way. What an awesome way to explore CLE!

Melt Bar and Grilled is one of the many places offering day-before-Thanksgiving specials. Melt continues its annual Diabolical Day Before Thanksgiving at all three locations by pouring “heavy hitting” beers, including Stone Double Arrogant Bastard. Enjoy a beer or two and the New Bomb Turkey, assuming you don’t have to get up to cook the next day!
 
 
On Thanksgiving Day, preemptively burn off those turkey calories at the 30th Annual Cleveland Turkey Trot through downtown. There is a one-mile fun run starting at 8:45am and a 5-mile timed run starting at 9:30am. If you register before November 17, registration is only $18. There is also a family discount for $15 per person.
