Saying goodbye to summer
Well, since it’s a three-day weekend everyone should work in at least one cook out as a way to say goodbye to summer. But what else should you consider?
For those who want to say a longer farewell to the warm weather, then you’ll probably want to mix in some more outdoor activities into your time together. Tops on that list, especially if the guys get to pick what to do this weekend, is the Cleveland National Air Show which is going on all three days at Burke Lakefront Airport. You should then find a restaurant though I wouldn’t recommend a downtown establishment unless you feel like walking. After all, you already paid for parking at the show so you don’t want to spend more at a garage or a lot.
And when you pick a restaurant, think about continuing the outdoor-theme with one that has a good patio. Headed west? Try The Harp. South? The South Side. East? Lure Bistro.
But what if it ends up raining all weekend or you’re like me and you’re sick of 90-plus degrees? Tops on my Indoor list is checking out the newly opened atrium at the Cleveland Museum of Art. The world-class collection is slowly but surely being put back on display in its newly renovated sections and the atrium looks like it will be one of the high points of a visit.
Other interesting-looking options this weekend: Seether takes the stage at the House of Blues on E. 4th Street on Friday; Thunderlips Improv! performs Saturday at the Big Dog Theater (2781 Euclid Heights Blvd.); and Cleveland Labor Day Oktoberfest goes all three days at the Cuyahoga County Fairgrounds.
