Now that the holidays have passed and our schedules are falling back into routine, it’s time for me (and I hope you) to start finding out what great events are coming up in the Cleveland planning scene. To help you out a bit, I’ve listed a few here.

A City of Two Tales: Writing About Cleveland

Location: Happy Dog

West 58th St. & Detroit Ave., Cleveland, OH 44102

What is better than mixing the Cleveland writing scene with delicious hot dogs and a great beer list? Not much, I’m convinced. If you want to meet some of Cleveland’s best bloggers to talk about the city and its struggles (and victories!), head on down. I’ll definitely be there. From the event page, here are the writers that will be present: Angie Schmitt, editor of; Justin Glanville, author of New To Cleveland; Derf, cartoonist and author (; Christine Borne and Kathryn Norris, editors of The Cleveland Review; Afi-Odelia Scruggs, contributor to Patch Beachwood; the editor of; Lee Chilcote of This is the first installment of Write to Assemble, a monthly series of writer-centric events at Happy Dog, curated by Ohio City Writers.

Location: Big Al’s Diner

12600 Larchmere Blvd, Cleveland, OH 44120-1110

If you missed the last brainstorming brunch, then do not fear… one is coming up this January! This is a highly informal event intended to convene a group of people that are passionate about the rust belt, and enthusiastic about bouncing ideas off of one another, making connections, and generally having a good time. The event is hosted by Saving Cities, an organization that works hard to improve and revitalize Cleveland, Akron, and all other cities across our post-industrial states. Great people, great time.

January Joint Association Happy Hour

Though I’ve never made it to one of these networking events, I’m hoping to make it to this one! The Cleveland Ohio APA is one member of the joint association, and encourages “members, non-members, students, guests, and design professionals over the age of 21” to attend and bring business cards. Other organizations involved are AIA Cleveland, Ohio Chapter American Society of Landscape Architects, American Society of Interior Designers (Ohio North), International Interior Design Association, Northeast Ohio Revit User Group, Cleveland Chapter of CSI, and Ohio Chapter of NKBA.
