Last night, a friend and I spent a grand evening in Tremont. From an early (and gut-busting) dinner at Sokolowski's to some patient book shopping at Visible Voice to a play at convergence-continuum to a post-theater drink at Velvet Tango Room. It was awesome and all within only several blocks.
Tonight you can do the same, though you'll have to abandon the near west side for the city's northeast quadrant. Taking place on Waterloo Road, no longer the CB Home Away From Home but now Just Plain Home, you can take in the opening of Low Life Gallery's second annual Spooktacular exhibit (note: I was in there a few days ago when they were hanging some of the work for the show and there are some really wonderful pieces), celebrate with the ladies at Shoparooni as they mark the store's second birthday, do some Halloween mask making among the shelves of vintage toys at Star Pop, listen to some experimental ambient goodness courtesy Akron's spectacular Trouble Books at Music Saves or a WCSB/WRUW battle of the DJs at Blue Arrow Records, and then bring it all home at a late-night release party for the newest issue of Pink Eye Magazine at the Beachland.
Need something to eat? Well, venture over to the Grovewood if you want something fancy or the Boardwalk if you want something cheap.
