Remembering the Cat
Two of the Toledo art scene’s beloved figures will be celebrated at the 2022 edition of CatFest, on Sunday, May 15 at the Bier Stube, which has generously hosted the event the past three years. CatFest is held in honor of Toledo artistic advocate Cat Lambert, who was tragically slain in 2015. A festival of art and live music, the event is held yearly to celebrate Lambert’s memory and to spread awareness about domestic abuse. This year’s event will close with a “Jam for Jake,” held in honor of local musician Jake Pavlica [right], who passed away in February. See “CatFest 2022” on Facebook for the latest information.
Celebrating 4 years Inside
Since May 2018, local fans have been singing the praises (and drinking the beers) of Inside the Five Brewing Company in Sylvania. To celebrate its 4th anniversary, the brewpub will hold a weekend of fun festivities in their adjacent parking lot over Memorial Day weekend. Starting with a 5k Beer Run on Saturday, May 28 (enjoy a free local craft brew at the finish line) and ending with a great view of Sylvania’s Memorial Day Parade on Monday, May 30, the three day event will have plenty of live music, food trucks and, of course, so much beer.
