Food and drink specials offered by Saffron Patch, with entertainment by renowned jazz pianist and composer Marshall Griffith, presented by the Cleveland International Piano Competition. Have a drink (cash bar) and head on out or stay for a delicious dinner with your friends.
Families can gather for an afternoon of ice skating and other fun and games at Thornton's Ice Arena on Saturday, March 10. Not a skater? No problem!
