Almost hard to believe that it is almost the middle of July already, but there are plenty of things still going on in your wonderful city!
Taste of Tremont – Sunday, July 15, 2012
Almost forgot about this one! The annual Taste of Tremont takes places this Sunday from 12 PM – 8 PM. It is free to attend, and there is plenty of street parking to be found around Tremont. It is probably one of the most fantastic ways to get to know a neighborhood that has been on the rise for years. Great food, and great people!

Tickets are still available for this wonderful beer drinking festival taking place at Lincoln Park on July 28th. You can pre-order a ticket online for $30, or just show up and pay $35 on the day of the event.
I have never been before, but I made sure to snatch a ticket early. Definitely pumped about this one!

Cleveland Wine Festival – Friday, July 27th – Saturday, July 28th
I don’t know if I will be able to make it this year because of the Ale fest, but for people who love wine, or for beer drinkers looking to expand his/her horizons, the Cleveland Wine Festival is a wonderful outing. The event takes place at Voinovich Park directly North of the Rock Hall on July 27th 4 – 10 PM, and July 28th 3 – 9 PM. Tickets are $28 in advance, and $35 at the door.

The Cleveland Bridge Project
Do you know the Detroit-Superior Bridge (Veteran’s Memorial Bridge)? You know, the blue bridge?! Did you know it has a lower deck that was once used for Cleveland’s street car system? If not, no big deal. Not many people actually know that Cleveland had one the most advanced street car systems in America. The system was eventually shut down and eventually “replaced” with the Rapid in the 1950s because of the emergence of the automobile. When the system closed, attempts were made to convert the lower deck of the bridge for automobile use, but eventually it was just abandoned. In previous years the lower deck has been home to Cleveland’s Ingenuity Fest, and occasional city tours, but now plans are developing to convert the space into something special for public use. Think bike trails, shops, parks, etc.. This could definitely be Cleveland’s version of NYC’s High Line.
