Epic, Yet Typical Toledo Weekend

April 26, 2009


D. and I pulled the bikes out Friday afternoon and rode downtown. The city was full of activity, including a MudHens game.


We closed the night with a couple manhattans… at Manhattan’s.


Saturday was the second Artomatic 419! weekend for ’09, so we spent our day with several hundred fellow Toledoans enjoying local visual and performing arts.


Artomatic has been a complete success… so do come out next Saturday for the final day (May 2nd).


Post-Artomatic activities included dinner at the Oliver House, more bike riding, and cocktails with friends on the back patio of Wesley’s.


D. started his Sunday with a visit to the Toledo Bicycle Co-op!


They have a gazillion bikes ready for you to claim and ride away with.

Next up…


The Ice Cream Social!


Thanks to everyone who came out, supported a great local business, and enjoyed some ice cream! I had a really great time celebrating the 1st birthday of this little Toledo blog with all of you.


… and this entirely pleasant dog! An extra special thanks to Marcia and co. at Lickity Split!


A few hours later had us enjoying R.’s birthday BBQ in the Old West End. A popular dish was the red hot sausages, but they frightened me a little so I declined.


All said and done, it was a great Toledo weekend–we have so many more to come!
