Weekend & giveaway!

Well, it’s going to be a perfect weekend to finish up those summer project around the home. Me? I’m planning on giving my garage a good clean out before the winter chill sets in as well as hanging some spooky decorations for the upcoming holiday!

I might try and squeeze in a bike ride since the weather is supposed to be amazing. Can anyone tell me how you find the tow path entrance that is supposedly behind Steelyard Commons? Or is that an old wives tale?

Besides cleaning, decorating and are a few other things that I may try and squeeze into my weekend...what are your weekend plans???

- Tonight's Best of Cleveland Party at the Rock Hall is supposed to be a great time.

- Polka happy hour at Happy Dog if I need to escape the party.

- If I felt like dressing like a zombie...the Dead Ride around town would be a fun event.

- For those of you who have always wanted to spend the night in a movie theatre...12 Hours of Terror at Capitol Theatre!

- Like to craft? A paper making demonstration at the Cleveland Public Library sounds cool, it's part of their Octavofest.

- Stash Style in Chagrin Falls is hosting a Breast Cancer Benefit from 5-11pm. Pink goodies, drinks & food. Vintage and hand knit fashion showing! Mini massages, palm readings & more! LIVE Music at 8:00

Or...drum roll please......

-The second annual Cleveland Beer Week begins TODAY friday october 15th, and runs through next saturday october 23rd. As a celebration of craft and import beer cleveland beer week features tastings, dinners and activities at over 100 venues.

The big gala-type of event; BREWzilla is being held next Saturday, October 23 at the galleria at erieview from 6 to 11pm. BREWzilla acts as the closing event where one can sample beer from over 80 breweries and enjoy tons of food and cheese from heinen's and winking lizard.

This whole gluten-free thing is preventing my consumption of beer lately, but my husband would LOVE LOVE LOVE this event! We've always been big fans of pumpkin ales, but this past summer we fell in love with some berry infused stuff. God I miss beer!

Currently I have two obsessions in the beer world.
The first being Indigo Imp's Blonde Bombshell. I love the fruity finish. It is a fantastic summer beer. With the cold settling in on us I have found myself continually drawn to Left Hand's Milk Stout. A fantastic beer.

I absolutely adore Purple Haze. It's light and crisp with just a hint of raspberry. Perfect for a hot summer day!

My favorite beer is unibroue maudite. It's such a smooth, traditional, unfiltered beer.

Weihenstephaner Hefeweissbier (yes, I had to google that). It is a delicious wheat beer that reminds me of travels through Germany. Wunderbar! Locally, really anything made by Great Lakes I enjoy tremendously. I love your blog!

Thirsty Dog Brewing Co. PUMPKIN ALE is my current fav!! It screams autumn in Northeast Ohio! Its the perfect accompaniment to leaf peeping, pumpkin picking and clambaking!

I heart your blog - keep up the good work!

I love Fat Tire but since you can't really get it here I have been loving Southern Tier Creme Brule stout.

I like hard ciders but I think going to an event like this will introduce me to some great beers!

Great Lakes Christmas Ale and Holy Moses are my two current favorites:
1. Christmas Ale: spicy flavor that goes well with turkey and has become a family tradition for Thanksgiving!
2. Holy Moses: citrus similarities to Blue Moon but better (and local!) flavor. So refreshing on a hot summer day!
Thanks for doing the giveaway!
