To celebrate our 23rd wedding anniversary we took a trip to downtown Cleveland last Friday night. I surprised Courtney and instead of taking a right turn on the way home from work we took a left turn and drove to the Ritz. I was surprised that Courtney was surprised because it took a bit of doing to arrange everything and to keep the girls quiet. We were very happy once we checked in to find out that we were upgraded to a beautiful two room corner suite with a huge sitting room, two bathrooms and great bathtub.
After unwinding and having a glass of wine in our room we headed down to the lounge in the Ritz for a cockail. We then took a stroll around downtown on our way to dinner.
We took another stroll downtown the next morning before breakfast. We walked around the new convention center/ medical mart construction area, down to the rock hall / voinovich park and then back up 9th to Euclid. I am so happy to report that I am optimistic about downtown Cleveland after a long time of not being so. I hope it lasts! Michael Symon had a nice bit today in the Huffington on Post about Cleveland. Let’s hope that all this positivity keeps on going. Article here.
