This past weekend I headed off to Cleveland, OH to visit my BFF for her birthday.
We're a couple of rock n roll lovin' girls, so that's the way we spent her birthday...
like "Women Who Rock"!
We started out with a birthday lunch at our favorite hot spot, Johnny Mangos!
Their watermelon margaritas are to die for!
Yeah...nothing like a good marg to wash down my go-to Johnny Mango salad.
Once properly fueled on alcohol, we took our rock lovin' selves to none less than Cleveland's
Rock N Roll Hall of Fame!
Besides being the bestie's birthday, this was the other reason I came to town...
no not for Johnny Cash's tour bus,
but for the new "Women Who Rock" exhibit
Although I'm fairly certain standing in front of this bus made me long for the days of yesteryear when I most definitely would've tried my hand at a little "Tiny Dancer" action, meaning I would've been a
"seamstress for the band".
Oh if only it were the 70's all over again!
But the Women Who Rock exhibit--wowzas!
I nearly peed in my pants as I stood face to face w/Joan Jett's "I Love Rock n Roll" outfit she wears on the cover of that very album.
(note to self, remember the "Bad Girl" tshirt is a MUST if I am to execute this upcoming halloween costume to 100% maximum perfection!)
Unfortunately, photos are not allowed in the exhibit areas.
I only managed to finagle a pic of the lobby, nothing like some floating cars thru the atomosphere!
So may I suggest you all hop over to Cleveland sometime before February, and check out the Rock Hall, and specifically the "Women Who Rock" exhibit.
You will not be dissappointed!
Even if you aren't into the rock n roll, they've got plenty of music to please the masses...I got to see one of Gram Parson's guitars, some of the Flying Burrito Bros.' nudie suits, a few of Michael Jackson's costumes, Cher's infamous native american headdress and costume, and sooooooooooo much more!
It's awesome...I should know, I've been there twice and I will go back again!
But one thing to keep in mind...this is Cleveland!
No need to get all fancy-schmancy to go to a museum.

Oh, speaking of thrift store and being in Ohio...of course I stopped off at about 4 of my fave thrifty haunts!
You'll be seeing the amazing threads (a vintage playsuit, a megadeath tshirt, a sweet medallion w/a big fat fly on it's clear glass background) and vintage coach bag(s) I scored for such low low prices!
God.....I LOVE their thrift stores!
