Friends of Northeast Ohio, a day for a new bridge to our future is arriving Thursday, November 17th, when the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) will present their plan to supplement the current I-90 Innerbelt bridge over the Cuyahoga River by building a second bridge immediately to the north of the current span. If you care about the form, flow and future of our community, you must care about this near $ billion project. The Cuyahoga County Planning Commission, area newspapers and universities, and broad community leaders all agree this project offers a great opportunity to reshape Cleveland forever. There is broad agreement we should replace the current I-90 bridge with a world-class span. In doing so, we may relocate the bridge south to allow further development around our $500 million gateway district, and create an astounding gateway entrance to our city. To help further such enlightened outcomes, realneo.us has provided a social networking site to this community, found at http://neobridge.net - thanks to Cleveland Institute of Art Future Center Director David Moss for site design support. Please join your community at NEO Bridge to interact on this issue. And, most important, please join your community at the Wolstein Center this Thursday, November 17th, at 4:30 pm for a public forum with ODOT...

Are
you looking to get your shop-on this Friday, but not looking forward to
fighting the crazy crowds at the malls? Are you tired of the same-old
super store gift selection? Well if you are (and even if your not) we
have just the suggestion for you.

This weekend, 1300, Bazaar
Bizarre and Assemble are teaming up to provide an alternative to the
old day-after-thanksgiving shopping experience. Over 50 participating
artists will call the 1300 complex home this weekend for a all out
opportunity to provide one of a kind gifts for the holidays gift giving
season, all the while supporting local artists... getting cash into
their pockets as well for their gift giving desires as well.
http://www.13hundred.com

featuring one-of-a-kind hip handmade gifts. With over 25 vendors, this
year's event promises to be a fantastic. Vendors on hand will include:
Anezka Handmade , Gracie Sparkles, Jenny Harada, six dozen of one /
Akron Stitch 'n Bitch, Cleveland Stitch 'n Bitch, Mr. Pickle's Room /

more.

a special addition, Greg Der Ananian, Bazaar Bizarre’s founder, will
also be in attendance to sign his new book Bazaar Bizarre: Not Your
Granny's Crafts.

In accompaniment to Bazaar Bizarre, Assemble
Gallery will be hosting a special Holiday Showcase for the weekend,
featuring local artists and crafters.

display and available for purchases at rock-bottom prices by the likes
of: Kris Barnes, Andy Baron, Jessica Berbaraich, Mary Dennis, Julia

An
opening reception for Assemble's Holiday showcase, and a preview party
for Bazaar Bizarre will take place this Friday from 7pm-10pm. So swing
by 1300 and Assemble, have a drink, relax, have a drink or two, shop
and most of all, avoid the mall-madness this Friday.

Bazaar
Bizarre and the Holiday Showcase will also be open Saturday from 12pm-
9pm and on Sunday from 12pm-6pm. Please note though, since many of the
pieces are one-of-a-kind items, and this show is a first come first

items bought during the event can be taken home same day.
