Opera and Ballet in the Italian Cultural Garden

In 1930, the Italian Cultural Garden opened as a "symbol of Italian culture." Almost 70 years ago the Italian Garden hosted the San Carlo Opera in the lower level amphitheater. In 2008, the Italian Cultural Garden Foundation revived this tradition by presenting Opera in the Garden.

The House I Lived In by Amy Kenneley

Just when you're feeling old and tired, something comes along to make you feel young again. That happened to me last week, when I opened the special section of the Plain Dealer titled "HOUGH-50 YEARS LATER".

The section spoke of neglect and failed projects but also hope. I turned the next page, and there was the photo of Newton Avenue, and my grandfather's house. Newton Avenue had been designated an historic street a few years back. That made it safe-I hope-from the wrecking balls of medical conglomerates and developers. These houses were built at the turn of the century,the 1900's, and I had been told were all designed by the same architect/builder...

Uber, Taxis and Travel by Joe Meissner

I love to travel. It is not the tourist places where we stop nor the sights that intrigue me but meeting new people.

I try to talk to everyone I encounter including the people on the street, waitresses in every restaurant, and the taxi cab drivers, especially the latter. Of course, Taxis must now compete with Uber drivers for my attention. This article of mine is the score sheet for six wonderful chance encounters in Washington, D.C. Two were Uber people, two were Taxi veterans, one was an individual from Kabul, and then there was Calvin, the street protestor. Enjoy.

Mughal India Exhibit at CMA

Art and Stories from Mughal India presents the story of the Mughals — and stories for the Mughals — in 100 exquisite paintings from the 1500s to 1800s. It runs from July 31, 2016 through October 23, 2016, and is free to the public in celebration of the Cleveland Museum of Art’s centennial year.

Art and Stories from Mughal India is organized into eight sections based on the Persian idea of the nama. Nama may be translated as any of a number of English words, among them: book, tale, adventure, story, account, life and memoir. Paintings were integral to the production of namas in book form for royal collections in Mughal India. Art and Stories from Mughal India sets the paintings, now long separated from their bound volumes, into their nama contexts.

Bare Bones: I'm Not Lonely If You're Reading This Book

A touching, funny, heart-wrenching, and triumphant memoir from one of the biggest names in radio, the host of The Bobby Bones Show, one of the most listened-to drive time morning radio shows in the nation.

Growing up poor in Mountain Pine, Arkansas, with a young, addicted mom, Bobby Estell fell in love with country music. Abandoned by his father at the age of five, Bobby saw the radio as his way out—a dream that came true in college when he went on air at the Henderson State University campus station broadcasting as Bobby Bones, while simultaneously starting The Bobby Bones Show at 105.9 KLAZ. Bobby’s passions were pop, country music, and comedy, and he blended the three to become a tastemaker in the country music industry, heard by millions daily. Bobby broke the format of standard country radio, mixing country and pop with entertainment news and information, and has interviewed some of the biggest names in the business, including Luke Bryan, Taylor Swift, Blake Shelton, Tim McGraw, Lady Antebellum, and Jason Aldean.

Yet despite the glamour, fame, and money, Bobby has never forgotten his roots, the mom and grandmother who raised him, the work ethic he embraced which saved him and encouraged him to explore the world, and the good values that shaped him. In this funny, poignant memoir told in Bobby’s distinctive patter, he takes fans on a tour of his road to radio. Bobby doesn’t shy away from the curves he continues to navigate—including his obsessive-compulsive disorder—on his journey to find the happiness of a healthy family.

Funny and tender, raw and honest, Bare Bones is pure Bobby Bones—surprising, entertaining, inspiring, and authentic.
