COLLINWOOD UNVEILED: A UNIQUE HOUSE TOUR September 19
For years, before I met a resident of the Villa Beach enclave, I walked past wondering what lay beyond that old stone arch; those of you who are also wondering might want to join the house tour, which will whisk us through the arch for part of a delightful evening; we’ll also explore a beach street’s park and assess the quality of its sunset viewing (of course there’ll be a sunset).
A repeat of last year’s highly agreeable tour of some of our neighborhood’s more fascinating homes, Unveiled 2010 will kick off with a private viewing of new works by artist Matthew Dibble at the Arts Collinwood gallery, coupled with a wine and cheese reception. Guests will also be invited to tour Azure, the splendid art glass studio across from Arts Collinwood, before boarding a limobus to visit beautiful lakefront neighborhoods, tour wonderfully eclectic homes, meet artists, hear musicians and enjoy hors d’oeuvres and refreshments. After a beautiful Lake Erie sunset, end the evening at the Arts Collinwood Café with dessert and coffee … a lovely evening to end the summer.
Sunday, September 19, 4:30-9 pm. Tickets $75per person. Tickets from Arts Collinwood, 216-692-9500.
Collinwood/Nottingham Historical Society meeting, Thursday, September 16, 6:30 pm, Lithuanian Hall, 877 E 185.
SPEAKING OF EGGS
Cavotta’s Nursery on Nottingham has added goats to the chickens already living there; it’s returning to its roots as an urban farm.

Quick visit to the market on Wednesday (early, to make sure of getting eggs – aren’t we all glad we don’t buy from factory farms?) netted peaches, corn, a big salad onion, Yukon Gold potatoes (Francis thinks they’re Yukon Gold, they certainly taste good) and of course the eggs. I could also have brought home cantaloupe, watermelon, tomatoes, green beans, garlic, any number of cheeses, little new red potatoes (the Yukon Gold are new, too, of course – but they’re large, which somehow doesn’t count), cucumbers, zucchini, plums – and more. Not to mention spices, jewelry and genuine miscellaneous. You’ll have to go look.
This Saturday, August 28, the market will hold its Annual Cliff Schutz Corn Roast with BBQ, from 10 am to 2 pm. Cliff was a pillar of the market for years, and the Marketers like to celebrate his acquaintance. Oh – and Blooming Patches is taking orders for chickens and Thanksgiving turkeys.
