I'll be nearby in Pittsburgh running the marathon on the weekend of May 13-15.
If I wasn't, I'd be in Cleveland. I enjoy every chance I get to visit Cleveland; there are always just enough sights, sounds, eats, and drinks to partake in to keep things interesting.
During my last trip there, I discovered La Cave du Vin near Case Western and came home with some great beers at decent prices.
Now, we can add the International Beer Fest to the list.
This looks to be quite the ambitious undertaking and I wish I could be there to experience. Check out their website for all the details. They're talking about something like 200 breweries and 800 beers.
I'm offering a chance for you to go in my place.
