The theme of this column is "trying new things." I'm happy to be starting this new project of writing the entertainment column for Leisure Living Magazine! I've done all I could to make the entertainment listing complete and varied, so there should be something for everyone. Although I've done my best to make sure all the information is accurate, please go online or call ahead to confirm your plans.

Events Welcoming Summer Along The Lake Front
Here Are Some Of Our Picks
Derby Day At Kelleys
Find your finery and head to Kelleys Island to celebrate the 144th running of the Kentucky Derby! Restaurants and bars will have a festive atmosphere all afternoon. Don't forget your most fabulous hat for the May 5 event.
Biggest Week In American Birding
Birding enthusiasts from all over the world come to the Black Swamp Bird Observatory - and several other areas - for Biggest Week in American Birding, May 4 through 13. Even if you've never tried birdwatching before, you might want to give it a try. Lectures, bus tours, and other events are available for newcomers and experienced watchers. A few years ago, I went to the boardwalk at Magee Marsh, the hotspot for seeing birds as they pause on their annual migration. I was working on a news story, and knew nothing about birding. The people there were warm and welcoming, and seemed to truly enjoy sharing what they knew. Check the Biggest Week in American Birding website for even information.
Put-in-Bay Music Fest
Kick off the summer with some great reasons to visit Put-in-Bay. The Second Annual Put-in-Bay Music Festival is a day-long, family-friendly event that will feature a huge range of music from bluegrass to zydeco (this sentence would have been much cooler if I could come up with a type of music that starts with an “A.” Sorry, readers).
NIAGARA Schedules Visits
The U.S. Brig Niagara will be at Put-in-Bay June 15 through 17, 23 through 25 (coinciding with the “Pyrate Fest X” event) and August 20-22. I had the opportunity to sail on one of the “tall ships” - not the Niagara, unfortunately, during the re-enactment of the Battle of Lake Erie a few years ago. I was fascinated by the way the crew operated, sometimes climbing masts to breathtaking heights.
At Cleveland Playhouse Square
Broadway hit Hamilton will be at Playhouse Square from July 17 through August 26. Tickets are expected to sell quickly, so people who want to go are encouraged to purchase as soon as possible. Hip-hop, jazz, blues, rap, R&B and a founding father.
