February is the “hump day” of the calendar year. Once we get past February, it’s almost smooth sailing into spring. It’s not unusual to get a brilliant sunny day or two in Cleveland — the kind that makes the icy bits sparkle just enough to trick us into thinking that winter isn’t so bad after all.
February has one thing going for it — its brevity. I admit, I’m eager to get on with the whole “in like a lion, out like a lamb vibe” of March. But, until then, I contend that the secret to managing February at Latitude 41 is staying really busy.
And, really, why should summer have all the fun?
I present to you Sunday Funday in CLE — Winter Edition. I’ve got your Sundays covered with adventures for the winter-averse or chill-seekers. The rest of the week is up to you!
Glide gracefully (or not) around Crocker Park’s ice-skating rink. Bring your own skates or rent them on the spot and work up an appetite before grabbing a snack at this always expanding outdoor shopping destination. Lace up and enjoy the rink through Feb. 28. The rink also is available to rent for private group outings.

Gather your galentines or Valentines for a French Macaron class with Annie’s Signature Sweets. You can learn how to make these classic French cookies right in your home kitchen, with virtual guidance from one of Cleveland’s most popular baking instructors, Ann LoParo. Macarons not your thing? She’s got a full slate of classes to try — from hot pretzels to cinnamon rolls.
Take a scenic drive to Ohio’s Grand River Valley for an afternoon of exploration in wine country. Snap some photographs at the Harpersfield Covered Bridge (the second longest in the state) before making a stop at the picturesque Laurentia Winery to pick up a bottle wine. I recommend trying their recent release, a 2019 Estate Unoaked Chardonnay. Reservations are a good idea if you want to secure one of the limited tables inside.

Brunching bibliophiles need look no further than Visible Voice Books in Tremont. The indie bookstore hosts private brunchtime shopping sessions in their cozy loft space featuring pastries from Leavened Bakery and Duck Rabbit coffee. Check their online schedule for available time slots (they book quickly). If you prefer an evening experience, they’ve got that too.
