Hello friends, followers, fellow bloggers….long time, no hear! I know right! Sorry for the hiatus, but I have worked on some new adventures. But I couldn’t let this great free event pass us by!
So when Clevelanders first received the notification that we had won the privilege to have the ROCK AND ROLL HALL OF FAME in our city we were filled with excitement, because let’s face it, this city was built on rock and roll (cheesy huh?). Our city would be on the map, known for something other than being “the mistake on the lake”. However when it was announced that the annual induction ceremonies, with all the glitz and glamour, would not be held in Cleveland but in New York, and every three years in Cleveland, I felt slighted!
I have to admit though that the having the museum in our city does come with some amazing perks. The addition of this beautiful masterpiece of architectural design to our lakefront makes Voinivich Park a draw to visitors and locals alike. The museum is always abuzz with activity! So one those activities is……… “CLEVELAND ROCK WEEK“!
