FRI 7/18

A tank top and droopy shorts won't get you a follow-up interview. But the Cleveland Rockers -- a notable exception to the rule -- will show the rest of us how to look the part of qualified job applicants with their Dress for Success Fashion Show and silent auction. Nine players will model business attire furnished by Chico's at Shaker Square. The $26 admission ($46 for VIP) includes appetizers and a ticket to a Rockers-Liberty tilt in August. The runway opens at 6:30 tonight at Bridges Restaurant in Gund Arena, 100 Gateway Plaza; call 216-420-2028 -- Erich Burnett

Latin Love
Spicy sounds and eats highlight the Puerto Rican Fest.

7/18-7/20

The Puerto Rican Cultural Festival & Parade celebrates its 35th year with carnival rides, music, and all the empanadas, alcapurrias, and pasteles you can eat. The parade winds down St. Clair Avenue at 1 p.m. Sunday, followed at 6:30 by the music of tropical-club crooner Huey Dunbar. Chicago's Ruiz Burbe will play its ancestral bombe plena music on Saturday evening, and local Puerto Rican musicians will jam throughout the weekend.

"We're all out for the same thing, to showcase what our culture is all about," says fest organizer Samira Schofield. It takes place from 5 p.m. to midnight Friday, noon to midnight Saturday, and noon to 10 p.m. Sunday at the Cleveland Municipal Parking Lot, 1501 South Marginal Road. Admission is free; call 216-631-1081. -- Cris Glaser

Tasty Tremont
Cleveland's comeback 'hood throws a block party.

SUN 7/20

Strolling musicians, art exhibits, and a food and wine garden make up the recipe for a Taste of Tremont. The neighborhood's first street fair, spilling over three blocks of Professor Street, spotlights the area's Greenwich Village feel. "We've got this rich texture, this bohemian flavor, with edgy, trendy kinds of restaurants and emerging shops and galleries," says Walter Wright of the Tremont West Development Corporation. Performances by Morrison Dance Company, the Powerhouse Pub cast of Flanagan's Wake, and live music by Boys From County Hell and Slap will run throughout the six-hour festival. It starts at 2 p.m. Sunday on Professor Street, between Jefferson and Literary. Admission is free; call 216-575-0920. -- Cris Glaser
