I thought it would be a little more springlike since I believe spring has finally arrived in my corner of the world but then the e-mail said it was based on our local Asiatown so I immediately thought red/black/yellow. And, here it is!
When I saw the actual colors I was pretty excited because I’m not a deep red/black kind of girl and this has such muted shades that it is really lovely.
Our Asiatown is so named because it celebrates many different Asian cultures and is a vibrant area located on the near-east side of Cleveland quite close to downtown. I have not spent much time in the area as I do not enjoy eating much Asian cuisine. However, in the past few months I have been attending meetings scheduled at various restaurants in the neighborhood which has allowed me to check out the area for myself. I have friends who enjoy the celebration that takes place for Chinese New Year in Asiatown and it always looks like a good time. Especially, this year welcoming the year of the sheep!
Recently, the area has also become home to a number of live/work spaces for artists and there are some cool things to be found in the galleries that are popping up. I would say this area has a lot to offer, especially if you have an interest in Asian culture, food, goods!
