Our next NOCA event will be a combination wine tasting and networking – and maybe even a night on the town. Friday, October 21st NOCA is teaming with the Artful Living Gallery at 1364 West 67th Street just off Gordon Square for art, wine, hors d’oeuvres and networking.

From 5:30 till 7:30 p.m. taste wines from Italy, France, Argentina, and California; experience the photography of noted Italian artist Marcello Mellino; enjoy live music from Shields & McHale; and mingle with your fellow professionals. There is no charge for the event and free parking is available across the street from Artful Living.

Then, make a night of it. Following the NOCA event, see why Gordon Square has become one of Cleveland’s most popular entertainment destinations. Within walking distance of the Artful Gallery, you can dine at Luxe, Stone Mad, XYZ or several other fine establishments. Or, you can take in a movie at the newly renovated Capitol Theater or a live performance at Cleveland Public Theater.

With NOCA as a starter, you can enjoy a full night on the town. Enjoy.
