Why? Somewhere in Time!

On Saturday night, Matthew and I stepped back in time to Cleveland in the 1870’s at the Western Reserve Historical Society‘s Somewhere in Time fundraiser.

The Cleveland History Center was decked out in Victorian-era décor from industrial to high-society.

The guests were decked out, too!

From steampunk to suffragette, so many different aspects of life in the 1870’s were represented in the guests’ creative costumes.

The food, drink, and entertainment celebrated Cleveland’s various ethnic pockets in the 1870’s. From pierogi and cabbage rolls and polkas in the Fleet Street Tavern…

…to potato pancakes (German) and lamb chops (British)…

…to lots of Irish pub singalong songs, there was something for everyone who made up Cleveland during that time.

You could also bet on the ponies (on the Euclid Beach Grand Carousel) and play roulette at the Glenville Race Track.

Matthew and I also played a round of pub trivia and were pretty surprised at our knowledge of Cleveland’s 1870’s history (or at least our ability to guess the right answer)!

Somewhere in Time was educational, fun, delicious, and philanthropic, all in one evening! It was certainly one of the most creative fundraisers I’ve attended!

***Disclosure: I was asked to help promote Western Reserve Historical Society’s Somewhere in Time. In exchange, I received two complimentary VIP tickets to the event. As always, all opinions are 100% my own.***
