What the Movie The Blind Side Meant to Me My wife Donna and I went to the Saturday afternoon movies again and we saw The Blind Side.  It’s based on a true story of an NFL player, Michael Oher, who plays for the Baltimore Ravens here in Maryland where our headquarters is located.  It was a wonderful film and conveyed a very important message.

Just a few weeks ago, over the Thanksgiving holiday, our Cleveland Marriott Downtown hosted the city’s annual Polka Festival for the 18th year in a row.  It’s a huge, lively event held in Cleveland, Ohio, the home of the Polka Hall of Fame.

It takes place every year, beginning on the Thursday of Thanksgiving and lasting through that Sunday.  People from all over the U.S., Canada and Europe come to celebrate what is touted as North America’s Premiere Polka Weekend with 15 leading Polka bands and delicious menu items like Slovenian sausage, German potato salad and strudel.
