What To Do This Weekend (11/15 – 11/17)
It may be a little colder, and a little darker outside, but that shouldn’t put a damper on your weekend. Here are some places to go and things to do after your 8-5 grind is kaput today.
Green – Market District. Sound silly? No way, this is a new concept to the area. Gourmet cheeses (a lot of them), beauty essentials of all sorts (natural, high-end, artisan), more ethnic food options than any other store near by (but don’t forget to keep shopping your local shop). In addition to getting a slightly better caliber of groceries than normal, they offer food sampling every weekend from 11am – 5pm from now until Dec. 29.
Cleveland – MOCA is hosting ArtScape – an awesome showing of “curated” artisan jewelry, accessories, and gifts – all available to buy. Find things to buy for yourself, your mom, your beau or a friend who appreciates something out-of-the box. You can choose to go tonight (Friday) from 5p-9p for the preview which is $8 but includes drink specials, food and music. On Saturday, ArtScape is free from 11a-5p.
Cleveland – The 6th Annual Cleveland Comedy Festival kicked off earlier this week and wraps up this Sunday. Head over to Playhouse Square to check out various stand-up or Improv shows throughout the weekend. Find the line up for each day here. Tickets range from $5-$35.
Canton – The Canton Comedy Series presents another show that I expect to be cry-tears-of-laughter good. Comedy Central’s Mike Vecchione is the headliner, and Josh Womack is hosting – both hilarious guys. E, myself and friends have went to two of the CCS shows in the past and are really looking forward to this one at The Fairways from 6:30p-9:30p on Friday evening. Want to come too? Tickets are here.
Canton – Head down to the Canton Palace Theatre on Saturday, the 16, from 7:30p-10:30p for Dancing with Canton’s Stars: Season 3. Tickets are $10, and proceeds benefit the theatre. The dancers will be notable people from the Canton community showing off their new (or old?) skills. Options for a VIP reception prior, and lots of spots to go in the downtown area after. Check out Buzzbin or George’s lounge for live music after 9p.
Canal Fulton – The monthly Rust & Found Sale is on! Starting yesterday, it will run: Nov. 14th 11 – 7p, 15th 11 – 5m, 16th 11 – 3p, 17th 11 – 3p. You’ll find all sorts of holiday decor, home decor and one of a kind, hand crafted pieces from your home. Both of us Amused Bouches have some amazing pieces from the R&F sales. And if you’re unfamiliar with Canal Fulton, the downtown area is popping! There are some other cute shops, a canal and livery, plus some really good restaurants.
