Dueling Pianos! Fun!
This is the seventh blog post I have written about a Cleveland.com TweetUp, and my wife, Julie, and I have attended many more. They are always about having fun in Cleveland while making new friends and meeting old TweetUp friends. I saw some people I had not seen in a while, so it was great to reconnect.
Like the February 5, 2015, Corner Alley - Uptown TweetUp (
@UptwnCrnerAlley UPDATE 11/22/15 NEW TWITTER NAME: @CornerAlleyUC), the September 24, 2015, Cleveland TweetUp at the The Big Bang Cleveland (@BangCleveland) was about welcoming a new entertainment venue to Cleveland. It was again hosted by Kristel Hartshorn (@Kristel_CLE) and Troy Smith (@TroyLSmith). I suggest you follow them on Twitter, and read their Cleveland.com (@ClevelandDotCom) articles, since they write about Cleveland entertainment.
Here is the event announcement:
Cleveland.com and The Big Bang are teaming up to bring you an evening of food, giveaways and music on Thursday, September 24. This is your chance to check out Cleveland’s only dueling piano bar, located at the newly redeveloped East Bank of the Flats.
Spend happy hour with our entertainment reporters, Kristel Hartshorn and Troy Smith, followed by all request music performed by some of the best entertainers around. Enjoy complimentary appetizers, drink specials, and the chance to win some great prizes from The Big Bang and the Greater Cleveland Aquarium. This event is free to attend, but you must register in advance to get on the guest list and enter the prize drawing.
Don’t forget to tweet about the event before, during and after with the hashtag: #CLEtweetup
I have gone to a dueling pianos-style bar in another city, so I was excited to now have this type of entertainment in Cleveland. The following photos and videos from the event will give you a flavor of the evening. Also, see the tweets below for more content about the evening. Julie was not able to attend this Cleveland TweetUp, so I look forward to going with her to The Big Bang Cleveland in the future.
Within this photo slide show, I did include five short videos. Be sure to watch the videos! They will give you a taste of this musical venue, but you really need to go and experience The Big Bang Cleveland in person.
Note that, in addition to The Big Bang Cleveland photos/videos, I have also included photos of other new venues on the East Bank of the Flats. I enjoyed seeing the nightlife of Crop Sticks/Crop Rocks (@CropBistro) and Punch Bowl Cleveland (@PunchBowlCLE) after the TweetUp.
On the way home, I captured some photos of the great lights of Playhouse Square (@PlayhouseSquare) (Do you want to see more Playhouse Square lights? See my Dazzle Cleveland! blog post about the celebration of the new Playhouse Square lights.)
As I was preparing this blog post, I saw Kristel Hartshorn's article: Tour inside 'The Big Bang' hitting Flats East Bank with Friday opening (video). This pre-opening video presents information about all the musical fun that is now in Cleveland at The Big Bang Cleveland.
