Two years ago at the Cleveland Museum of Art: Summer Solstice party, it was balls to the wall hot, humid and completely unbearable because I only lasted an hour with friends there.
It was the kind of heat when you stepped outside you started sweating immediately and any hope of your make-up staying put was pointless as your face literally would melt in a matter of minutes. The kind of heat where you need to be indoors or in a pool at all times.
Not this year, friends, not even close! It was a gorgeous evening outside celebrating summer and the "hottest summer music festival."

Like past years, I opted for the late entrance tickets at 10:30 p.m. but after this year's event, I'll upgrade next year to get the 8 p.m. tickets. The late tickets work well because you can grab dinner in Little Italy (or in our case Washington Place Bistro) and leisurely make your way to celebrate the first day of Summer.
Two reasons why it's time to go earlier:
1) You only have about 2 hours to see everyone and that's a TON of space to cover and friends to make sure you see.
2) More time to dance your ass off outside and inside the atrium.

Tickets for CMA Solstice keep selling out quicker year after year just like the Jump Back Ball at Playhouse Square. I love this event every year - it's one of the first Cleveland events and kicks off the summer season with a bang.
If the weather is right, you are lucky enough like we were all on Saturday night to enjoy a beautiful summer night out with thousands of closest friends at one of my favorite places on the east side of Cleveland.
Why hello summer, it's great to see you again!
