Cleveland-Akron, where you can expect cool events everyday

? Cleveland's Beats & Eats are the type of urban comfort food you can expect from living and working in a big city (this year, they move from the now-former Mall C to the prime time location on Public Square.). For more information

? University Circle is joining in the big city fun with street and cultural festivals, from Carlos Jones & the PLUS band at tomorrow night's Wade Oval Wednesday to the 64th One World Day on August 28th in Rockefeller Park presented by the Cleveland Cultural Gardens Federation. 

? On the west side, mingle with green building professionals working in Northeast Ohio at tomorrow's Green Building Council's summer networking event on the patio at Clifton Martini Bar.  

? Akron continues to develop its sustainable city credentials with its next E4S event: "Placemaking: Creating value through sustainable urban planning" on August 10. Todd Ederer, architect and partner in Canal Town Builders, will describe the Hickory Development story. 

? Cleveland keeps its ties to international 'cyclovias' through its Walk + Roll event Aug. 13 in Slavic Village. Closing the road to cars and opening minds and celebrating what's cool about cities in balance with all modes of transportation (live music, public art, historic church tours, garden tours, youth activities and more.) 

? On Friday, August 19th, check out the 2011 Cleveland Design Competition Awards Reception and Exhibition. All of the submissions from the 2011 Cleveland Design Competition: "A NEW School Vision!" will be on view (submissions from all around the world depicting NEW School Visions for what the future of Cleveland school facilities might look like).

? And don't forget, Dr. Marcus Eriksen-who sailed to and measured the Pacific garbage 'patch' on a raft of recyclable materials-returns to Cleveland tomorrow night for a 6 p.m. workshop at the Natural History Museum on how to build a junk raft (for teams participating in the Great Lake Erie Boat Float on September 10).
