Cleveland travelers gather to discuss Alaska
If you've ever wondered what it would be like to visit there, Tuesday night will be a great opportunity for Clevelander's to talk with those who've been there and get the real answers you seek. Like, NO, it doesn't snow all year long and YES you can go out in short sleeves during a great number of days each year.
The Northeast Ohio Council of Hostelling International is sponsoring a Travelers Circle event this Tuesday night at 6:00 P.M. at Bar Cento in Ohio City. The Travelers Circle is a free event, sponsored numerous times each year, highlighting different vacation destinations. This particular event will concentrate on Alaska from the Kenai Peninsula in the south to Anchorage and Fairbanks further north. Hostels visited will be discussed as well as traveling on the Alaska Railroad.
Typically, a half-hour long presentation with a slide show will be followed by a question and answer session. Before and afterwards, you may avail yourself of all the wonderful refreshments served by Bar Cento. Travelers Circles are always open to all and reservations are not needed.
Bar Cento is located at 1948 West 25th St in Cleveland, about one block NW of the West Side Market. Parking is available on the street and there is a lot available at 26th and Market Avenue.
Bar Cento serves an Italian menu with great pizza, 99 Belgian beers and 100 wines from around the world. Living the "green movement," they source local and organic ingredients from local farmers. Click one of these links for their menu or their wine list.
