Why? Weekends!

My weekend was a nice mix of busy and relaxed, which is generally how weekends should be, I think! On Friday night, we had our friends Rich and Rachel over for board games and Thai take-out. We ordered obscene amounts of food from Thai Orchid.


The Pad Thai and mango shrimp curry were my favorites! It was a fun evening of too much food and good catching-up time.

On Saturday, Mom and I went to see “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat” at Playhouse Square with the John Carroll University Cleveland Alumni Chapter.

Seriously, though, it was another lovely performance at Playhouse Square. There is honestly no better place to see a theater production! And it’s always fun to go to events with other JCU alumni! If you’re an alum, check out the upcoming chapter events, including a talk on economic development with Parma mayor Tim DeGeeter on Thursday, March 20 and a happy hour at Press Wine Bar on Thursday, April 3.

After the show, Mom and I had an early dinner at Cibreo. I ordered the gnocchi, with mushrooms and grapes.


The sauce was so rich and earthy and the gnocchi were like no others I’ve had before: softer and puffier than other gnocchi.

Mom chose the asparagus risotto, which was a surprisingly light and spring-y dish.


For dessert, we split the zebboli, Italian donuts rolled in powder sugar and served with chocolate and raspberry sauces and whipped cream.


Cibreo is a great addition to the Playhouse Square area and a perfect spot for a pre- or post-show meal!

Sunday was spent running errands, including buying up some cute spring apparel from Destination Maternity. I’m so ready for pastels and skirts and short sleeves!

How was your weekend? Did you do any early St. Patrick’s Day celebrating?
