Why? Weekends!

What a fun and busy weekend! Aside from our winery adventures, there were plenty of other good times to be had. Friday evening, I met up with friends Tracy and Kathleen for the Dixie Chicks concert at Blossom Music Center.

The summer after our freshman year in college, Tracy and I drove up to Buffalo to see the Dixie Chicks. After all these years, it was not only great to see the Chicks perform, but to see them with the same friend!

The Dixie Chicks haven’t put out an album or toured in 10 years, so the music was all a throwback to what I remembered loving from them. It was a great show, plus the weather was perfect for an outdoor concert!

On Saturday night, Matthew and I were honored to attend the Cleveland Play House Cirque du Centennial gala as guests of Playhouse Square.

From the moment we arrived, the modern masquerade theme was evident, from the masks to the lighting to the awesome performers from The Amazing Giants.

We enjoyed delicious hors d’oeuvres and a sit-down dinner from The Driftwood Group, as well as great music that packed the dance floor from Kyle Primous and K Street.

The gorgeous Allen Theatre lobby was a spectacular venue for this event!

But Cirque du Centennial wasn’t just about partying. Cleveland Play House also paid tribute to their outgoing centennial season and celebrated their history as the first regional theater company in the country.

There were performances from Cleveland Play House alumni, as well as live auctions which raised, among other funds, $141,000 for CPH educational programs! What a fun fete to honor one of Cleveland’s cultural gems!

Phew! It was quite a busy weekend, but most are over the summer, aren’t they? Hope your weekend was fun, too!

***Disclosure: I was invited to attend the Cleveland Play House Cirque du Centennial as a guest of Playhouse Square due to my involvement with Playhouse Square Partners. As always, all opinions are 100% my own.***

  1. I SO wish I’d been paying closer attention to the Blossom schedule. I would’ve loved to have seen the Dixie Chicks, & it seemed like my Instagram feed was full of it that night!
