Shaker Square already preens itself as a go-to mecca of fine restaurants, movie houses, and shopping boutiques. But every Saturday through Labor Day this summer, venerable Northeast Ohio bands will strum R&B, reggae, and Beatles tributes under the setting sun for the Shaker Square Summer Concert Series. Tonight, doo-wopper Blue Lunch kick-starts the string of programs with a two-hour set. Nearby pizzerias and ethnic restaurants offer take-out dinners to eat on the lawn during the concerts. "Shaker Square is a crossroads, an intersection of people both in the literal sense and as a gathering point," says Leanne van Beers-Werneke, the neighborhood's marketing queen. "It's now an entertainment venue of the East Side." The music starts at 6 tonight on Shaker Square, 13000 Shaker Boulevard. Admission is free. Call 216-932-8822 or visit www.visitshakersquare.com for a complete schedule.
Saturdays, 6 p.m. Starts: May 24. Continues through Sept. 6, 2008
