We just passed our 1 year anniversary of working with The Cleveland Hostel and it has been a true joy to help promote, not only the hostel but also the city of Cleveland, to the rest of the world! Recently, Owner Mark Raymond approached us with an idea: hosting a street wide open house to celebrate the businesses on W. 25th Street, South of Lorain Ave. We were all about this idea and jumped on board to help host the first ever SoLo Stroll! With over a dozen participating local shops and restaurants, we enjoyed a lovely day in our favorite city!

Dreamhouse hosted a gift card giveaway drawing in front of The Cleveland Hostel. We gave away over 15 gift cards, donated by all the local shops, for free to over 300 entrants! It was a lot of fun.

 We created special maps featuring discount coupons for all the participating stores on the block. The event featured incredible live music by Jordan Dean, Michelle Gaw, and Matt Miller on the balloon canopied, sidewalk patio of The Cleveland Hostel and Passenger’s Cafe.

This sunny, breezy afternoon was full of families, friends, neighbors, and visitors from around the world. We estimate that over 600 people strolled along W. 25th Street!

We are proud of our clients, our neighborhood, and the amazing small businesses that we get to interact with each day.

Thank you to Penzeys Spices, The Cleveland Candle Co., Xhibition, Voodoo Monkey Tattoo, Salty Not Sweet Boutique, Room Service Boutique, Campbell’s Sweets Factory, The Cleveland Hostel, Passengers Cafe, Wild Cactus Boutique, and Citizen Pie for your gracious participation in this wonderful day. We loved working with each of you to make this event successful.

Did you miss the first SoLo Stroll? Ready for round 2?

Join us on July 15th!
