    Default Helllooooo Cleveland

    Hey guys, I'm sure we have some Polkies there, so I wanted to make an inquiry into Cleveland.

    I'll be up there for business Tuesday of next week, and wanted to see if anyone had any "one day travel tips". I'll be free around 5PM onward, so I guess I'm just looking for great food or a really cool bar to visit.

    I'll be at the giant KeyBanc building downtown, so somewhere within reasonable proximity of there would be nice.

    Suggestions would be appreciated. And if anyone wants to meet for dinner, I might be able to put it on company dime

    Yes, that's on my list of possibles. I wanted to get down to Canton, but was not able to make up an excuse to do so.

    I usually hit up a baseball game during the spring/summer/fall, but obviously games aren't on yet.


    Great Lakes brewery sounds intriguing as well; thanks for the recommendation.

    Is there a certain food that is Cleveland personified? I always think of pizza in NY, steaks in Chicago (as well as brats, etc.) What food would I be crazy to miss in Cleveland?

    And if there are any locals, I'd be glad to meet you out for dinner!

    Winter hours at at the Football Hall of Fame are still in effect. They close at 5p weeknights. If your up there during the summer, the hours are till 9p (last I checked). It's only about a 45 - 60 minute trip from downtown Cleveland to Canton.

    No I don't live in Ohio. The company I work for is based in Akron.

    Concerning food, I don't know if there is something specific to Ohio. I do know you will find the food pretty bland. Last week at a company dinner I ordered some specialty fries of the house (Willie Fries, spiced with a bit of red pepper flakes and sweet onions). I thought they were pretty good. The guy sitting next to me said they were way too hot to eat. I rated them a 0-1 on my personal hot scale. he said that was the hottest thing he had eaten in a restaurant in years.

    As far as something for your trip, ask one of the locals to recommend a place down in the flats. That will give you something to do after the rock and roll hall of fame. Lots of good bars and comedy clubs in the area.

    Don't forget to see "A Christmas Story" house just outside of the city.
    Oh, you hate your job? Why didn't you say so? There's a support
    group for that. It's called EVERYBODY, and they meet at the bar.
