Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and What I Wore Today 08/12/2011 (Cleveland Rocks!)

IMG_9843

To continue the celebration of Ryan's 30th birthday, he and I spent a night and a day in Cleveland (we drove back last night) to see the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, which is truly an extraordinary museum. In every aspect (architecturally gorgeous building, amazing selection of artifacts, great organization and displays) this place hits the nail on the head. I went with my parents when I was around 12 and have been wanting to go back for a while. I also really wanted Ryan to see it since he is a huge music history buff. Going with him was a blast because he pointed out so much stuff and showed me connections I would have definitely missed.

There was a strictly enforced no-photography rule inside the museum (of course), but I did manage to get a few sneaky cell-phone pictures of a few pieces of clothing that I felt I just

had

to share with you.

Cleveland is quite a lovely city; much like Cincinnati, but with a lake instead of a river. We walked around near the lake after the Hall of Fame closed and then had some really good sushi before driving the 4.5 hours home.

Here's something else I want to share with you. One of the birthday presents I gave Ryan was this collection of prints for his wall. I made them by printing silhouettes of things he likes onto old book pages.
