Type: Out on the Town
Planned By: Adam
Every year in October Cleveland has a week long event all about beer - Cleveland Beer Week! The last two years (you can see the details here and here) Adam and I went to the Collaboration Kick Off. We decided to go again because we enjoyed it the previous years. This time we went to the Tremont location. It was nice trying out some new bars, but we both preferred the downtown version (less busy & bigger bars). We did learn from the last two years that one ticket is enough.. except this year they actually had small sample glasses instead of the normal sized glasses they used downtown. We aren't sure if it is because Tremont follows the rules and Downtown doesn't or if the committee for Beer Week changed it. We may never know.

Type: Theme, Friends
Planned By: Lauren
OU homecoming was October 11th. A bunch of our college friends agreed against going to Athens this year for the festivities, because we are getting a little old to sleep on wood floors and wake up at 5AM for drinks. So this year, when Lauren moved to Lakewood, we decided to have Homecoming Housewarming party at her new place! We all enjoyed mimosas, pizza, streaming the game, listening to the 110, making Pawpurrs Black Outs and even had some Jackie O's beer. We all had a lot of fun like we always do when we're all together.
We were all sad about missing homecoming, but one of the best parts of being at OU is being with your friends. Since we were all there celebrating our wonderful alma mater it was almost the same (minus a 3.5 hour drive for us - yay Cleveland!).
