Green Day should NEVER be in the Rock Hall

Green Day should never be in the Rock Hall.  Green Day isn’t a bad band, don’t get me wrong.  They have achieved an incredible amount of commercial success and paved the way for other pop punk bands after them.  Some decent, others an absolute travesty.  However Green Day should never be in the Rock Hall…

Katz Club Diner Fire

James Warholak has been charged with arson in the fire that engulfed much of the hip Doug Katz eatery Katz Club Diner.  Charged, obviously innocent until proven guilty, but at the same time kudos go out to Cleveland Heights Fire and Police for nabbing the suspect so quickly. When I woke Tuesday morning to see…

Pete Yorn You & Me at the Beachland Cleveland

Pete Yorn made it back to Cleveland last night to an absolutely packed house at the Beachland Ballroom.  Dubbed “Pete Yorn You and Me Acoustic” Yorn brought his best hits solo to an enamored crowd.  The first time I saw Yorn was at the Agora Theater in 2002 in support of one of the best…

Randy’s Pickles are the real dill

I’m going to get more into my friends over at Randy’s Pickles at a later date, but when I find something this good and from Cleveland I have got to tell you about it.  I was manning a booth at the North Union Farmers Market Garlic Festival at Shaker Square a few weeks back and…

Hard Rock Rocksino Money Honey

Oh what a difference a day makes.  I felt cheated on my gaming experience yesterday after a visit to the Racino and I had to atone for that by a fun packed day at Cleveland’s one and only Hard Rock Rocksino in Northfield.  The Rocksino is by far the absolute be all end all of…

Thistledown Racino

I was excited to head to the Rocksino today to meet up with my mother and father in law.  I am a huge fan of the Rocksino.  Awesome dining options, amazing rock and roll memorabilia displays, coupled with the hottest and newest slots around the city!  I love the rock and roll upbeat vibe of…

Burntwood Tavern Rocky River Brunch

Why in the world aren’t there more people here for brunch?  This place has it all.  Great selection on the menu, and a pretty solid Bloody Mary bar.  First, choose which Tavern-infused Vodka you would like – traditional, jalapeño & garlic, pickle, bacon, or one of their other infusions. Next, choose your tomato juice &…

El Carnicero Master Chef Throwdown!

Well it wasn’t really a throwdown, it was more of a little party after my Master Chef tryout.  El Carnicero has one of the best party rooms on the west side, and Chef Eric Williams was very accommodating.  I handed off some Oxtail concoction I made for the Master Chef tryout, he turned it into…
