W.O.W Cleveland is cool

Really. Cleveland can be cool, even in this hot summer weather. From now until August 27th you can check out Wade Oval in University Circle on Wednesdays from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. to take advantage of extended museum hours in the area, free music concerts and purchase tasty treats from different various local restaurants that will cater the event each week. Check out the W.O.W site for more details and a complete entertainment listing.

In addition to the yummy food, and FREE entertainment the event is also hosting fabulous artists each week and you can shop and purchase lovely handmade items made by local artisans. Visit two of my favorites, HiAnnie and Smashing, both members of Cleveland Handmade July 30 or August 20th.
