It’s been established that we, here at PLB, like to have a good time. And Northeast Ohio is a legit place for good times to be had. While half of our Company polkas the day away at Cleveland's Dyngus Day celebration, we would like to take this opportunity to share some dope NE Ohio events taking place soon. If you are asking yourself, "What in the pierogi is Dyngus Day?" then you are definitely missing out on all the quirky fun NE Ohio has to offer. You need this list.

LET’S TALK ABOUT CONSENT! – Thursday, May 18 at 7:00pm
If you’re interested in hearing speakers from Community Organizations and Non-Profits, this is a one-of-a-kind event you shouldn’t miss, especially if you are part of Akron’s thriving DIY community. Learn about topics surrounding consent and programs available through The Battered Women's Shelter of Summit & Medina Counties and the Rape Crisis Center. Visit the Event Page on Facebook to learn the specifics about this awesome opportunity. The hosts of the event include three DIY organizations which support art and entertainment in Akron. These places are ones to watch for fresh events.
We’re no experts, but we like to think we know a thing or two about finding fly events in our community. Don’t be shy, drop us a line if you can’t find events in NE Ohio that speak to you. Let’s share a pop and talk about what makes this little corner of the world so awesome. There’s a little something for everyone here, whether you’re a brain, an athlete, a basket case, a princess….wait, we’ve gotten off track. To keep us from straying too far into 80’s nostalgia, share your favorite ways to shop, eat and enjoy locally.
