Things to Do in Cleveland this Weekend


It’s spring. No joke. The calendar says so. We’re not going to tell you winter coats won’t be needed until next winter. We’d likely be lying. We ARE going to tell you that when it’s 50 degrees in Cleveland, shorts are an option. Weekend forecast is calling for something other than bitter chill. Let’s celebrate.
