Tartine Bistro opened in July of 2008 with the intention of providing a little slice of Paris in the heart of Rocky River. Since then, the little cheese and wine bar has grown to incorporate a full kitchen and an extensive wine list under the supervision of brothers Michael and BJ Grieve. Michael, a graduate of Le Cordon Bleu Culinary Academy took over as Executive Chef in the spring of 2016 and has revitalized and re-worked the entire concept. BJ, who studied under some of the best sommeliers in San Diego and San Francisco, has taken the wine list and service to whole new levels, offering an eclectic collection of bottles and glass pours. What was once the local spot to enjoy some small snacks and a glass of wine has become the go to destination in Rocky River for some of the most inventive fare and finest service in the city of Cleveland.
Dinner begins at 6 pm. Each attendee will receive an entree of their choice, and while adult beverages are available they must be ordered separately. This event is open to The Club's professional members only.
Our Global Gourmet series explores the many delicious ethnic restaurants that Cleveland has to offer. Each month, we will visit a different restaurant around the city and learn about the cuisines and cultures of the world through Cleveland’s vibrant food scene. These dinners offer an opportunity to network in a small setting with like-minded gourmands.
New year, new movies to go see! We’re rolling out the red carpet for our young professionals to start monthly “Movie Night Outs.” Here’s the pitch: we’ll first meet up at a local restaurant to grab a quick bite to eat and network for an hour. Afterward, we'll catch a flick together at the nearby movie theater and enjoy the night. Dinner and a movie--it will be a star-studded event!
For dinner, we will meet at Applebee's Bar + Grill at Ridge Park Square starting at 5:30 p.m. Let Applebee's know you are with the Cleveland Professional 20/30 Club. At around 6:30 p.m. we will then head over to AMC Ridge Park Square Theater and purchase tickets together.
This month, we will go see Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (2019). Summary: After Palpatine mysteriously returns, the Resistance faces the First Order once more in the final chapter of the Skywalker saga.
Restaurant, movie theater location, and exact showtime will be provided closer to the date.
Cost of your meal, drinks, parking and admission to the movie theater is on your own.

Please join our next book club discussion!!
For the January Cleveland Professional 20/30 book club, we will be discussing "Extreme You: Step Up. Stand Out. Kick Ass. Repeat." by Sarah Robb O'Hagan.
"As a child, Sarah Robb O’Hagan dreamed she could be a champion. Her early efforts failed to reveal a natural superstar, but she refused to settle for average. Through dramatic successes and epic fails, she studied how extraordinary people in sports, entertainment and business set and achieve extremely personal goals. Sarah became an executive at Virgin Atlantic and Nike, and despite being fired twice in her twenties, she went on to become the global president of Gatorade and of Equinox—as well as a wife, mother, and endurance athlete.
In every challenging situation, personal or professional, individuals face the pressure to play it safe and conform to the accepted norms. But doing so comes with heavy costs: passions stifled, talents ignored, and opportunities squelched. The bolder choice is to embrace what Sarah calls Extreme You: to confidently bring all that is distinctive and relevant about yourself to everything you do.
Inspiring, surprising, and practical, Extreme You is her training program for becoming the best version of yourself."
Please join us to discuss the book on January 27th at Red Lantern, I will be there a few minutes early and will place the book on a table for recognition. firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.

Join the Cleveland Professional 20/30 Club as we partner with the Young Professionals of the Cleveland Kids' Book Bank to prepare gently-used books for distribution to children and families in need.
Can you imagine a family home without children’s books? Could you have even learned to read without your own books? Sadly, two-thirds of low income families in Cleveland do not possess any of their own books, causing decreased literacy levels in the inner city and contributing to the devastating cycle of poverty.
The Cleveland Kids' Book Bank aims to break this cycle and foster literacy and a love of reading among the children and families in our community by making books accessible to all. They recognize that kids need books to learn and to feed their imagination--but they need our help to get them!
Come help us turn Cleveland into a city of passionate young readers by volunteering at their Young Professionals' signature monthly event, “Books & Brews," a happy hour book sorting and BYOB networking event. Network with other like-minded YP's while browsing, batching and boxing books for distribution to local organizations that serve children and families in need.

Join us as we hike a portion of the Cuyahoga Valley National Park! This time, we will be exploring Kendall Ledges! Around 320 million years ago, the Cuyahoga Valley National Park and Virginia Kendall Ledges had fast-moving streams coming from the North and East that flowed into an inland sea covering Ohio at that time. The Cuyahoga Valley National Park Ledges are located within the Virginia Kendall Park Area of Cuyahoga Valley National Park. Sand, gravel and quartz pebbles were carried by the water and deposited in a wide delta. After millions of years, this debris in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park compacted and became the Sharon Conglomerate. The milk-white quartz pebbles poking from the Virginia and Kendall Park Ledges are tell-tale signs that these ledges, as well as most of the other cliffs in the region that are named ledges, are comprised of the Sharon Conglomerate.
We will hike for about an hour or so. Or until people want to finish! We can refuel after our hike at Flury's Cafe, a local diner:Flury's Cafe
DIRECTIONS: From I-271 or I-71, take Route 303 Exit east to Peninsula. Head south on Akron-Peninsula Road and turn left on Truxell Road at the sign for the Ledges. Continue past Kendall Lake to the Ledges driveway on the left. Meet us in the Kendal Ledges Parking Lot.

Come join our book club discussion!
For the March Cleveland Professional 20/30 Book Club, we will be discussing "The Underdog Advantage - Rewrite Your Future By Turning Your Disadvantages Into Your Superpowers" by Dean Graziosi.
Book Summary from Amazon:
"WHAT IS THE UNDERDOG ADVANTAGE ALL ABOUT? Do you ever feel stuck in your life? Here's how to FLIP THAT SWITCH! Finally the success road-map for those not born to privilege or advantaged. Do things look good on the outside but on the inside, you feel like a prisoner trapped in mediocrity? Or maybe you feel like you missed your chance, or you can't find your starting point and no matter what you do, nothing moves you forward? You're the underdog-dismissed, counted out, lacking the right resources and unsupported. This book changes all that by taking you on a journey and showing you what successful "underdogs" throughout time have already discovered. Your so called disadvantaged are the fuel and the hidden superpower to accomplish anything you know the secret on how to flip the success switch on in your life... This book will show you that as an underdog (something we all are) you're actually in a great position, and with one or two small shifts, you can unlock limitless potential. Being an underdog means you don't have to worry about what other people think, you have a lot of room to improve, you can get easy momentum, you can sneak up on competitors, and you have incredible sources of motivation. Soon you will learn that being an underdog is actually your ultimate unfair advantage to next level wealth, prosperity, happiness and joy."
Our host, Sarah, will be there a few minutes early and will place the book on a table for recognition. Email email@example.com with questions.

Exclusive for Professional Members - Join the Cleveland Professional 20/30 Club for our Monthly CEO Dinner with the one and only Dr. Akram Boutros, Chief Executive Officer of MetroHealth.
Attendees can make connections not only with the CEO, but also with the other driven young professionals in attendance. The CEOs represent a wide range of companies and industries and whether big or small, public or private, well-known or niche, good conversation is had by all. This event will be $50 per professional member and will include your dinner at BOLD Food and Drink.
About Dr. Akram Boutros,
In his six years as the President and CEO of MetroHealth, the public health system in Cleveland, Akram Boutros, MD, FACHE, has galvanized political leaders, entrepreneurs and the public around supporting community-wide health care many had taken for granted.
With his unwavering commitment to delivering high-quality health care to everyone, Akram Boutros has achieved what many thought was impossible. Under his leadership, The MetroHealth System went to market on its own credit in 2017 and sold $946 million in bonds to rebuild its hospital, revitalize its main campus and resurrect its West Side neighborhood. On April 15, 2019, it broke ground on that, 11-floor hospital. Two months later, it announced a more than $60 million investment in its Clark-Fulton neighborhood that includes three apartment buildings with shops, restaurants and other amenities.
That hospital is just one piece of the unprecedented transformation of Cuyahoga County’s public health care system Dr. Boutros has piloted since he arrived at MetroHealth in 2013.
In the six years since, he has created an Integrated Delivery System that provides care at more than 20 community health centers, four emergency departments, four clinicsin Discount Drug Mart stores, four MetroExpressCare locations and nine pharmacies. Those are in addition to MetroHealth’s main-campus hospital, which is home to the area’s most experienced Level I Adult Trauma Center, Ohio's only Ebola Treatment Center and the only adult and pediatric trauma and burn center in the state.
With $1.3 billion in annual revenue, MetroHealth treats more than 300,000 patients at more than 1.4 million visits a year.
In the past six years, The MetroHealth System has also created more than 1,800 additional jobs, sent doctors into a dozen Cleveland schools and constructed an $82 million addition to its Critical Care Pavilion. And last year, MetroHealth returned $219 million – 19.1% of its operating expenses – to Cuyahoga County in free care and community benefit programs. That is nearly two times the national average.
Dr. Boutros’ collaborative spirit has led to dozens of partnerships, including working with the Cleveland public schools to open what is believed to be the only high school inside a hospital. Its first class of seniors will graduate in June 2019, and 100% were accepted to college.
An internist with a 25-year record of successful hospital leadership at academic medical centers, community hospitals and specialty hospitals, Dr. Boutros cultivates personal relationships throughout the hospital system and the community along with an atmosphere of personal excellence for everyone he works with.
Dr. Boutros is a graduate of St. John’s University, SUNY Downstate Medical Center and Harvard Business School’s Advanced Management Program. He has received an honorary Doctor of Medicine degree from Northeast Ohio Medical University and an honorary doctor of humane letters from Baldwin Wallace University.
His community service includes serving on the boards of:
