Hotep Brothers.....
First and foremost let me start by begging the forgiveness of the Mod's and Judgment Cat Wink
I'm not sure if I am breaking the rules here......

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pilgrimage
(Strangely accurate lol)

But as some of you know, I've been on this site for years, chatting faithfully about our beloved team....and while I have seen the boys play 6 times (3 times in Buff, 1 in Charlotte, 1 in DC and once in Baltimore)....I have never seen the boy's play in Cleveland....or been to Cleveland for that matter....
Well today I decided enough was enough.....I bought a plane ticket about 15 minutes ago....I'm coming to Cleveland Brothers.....

I will be in town on Sep 26th (late) and bouncing out first thing Monday Morning Sept 30th........coming to see the Battle of Ohio.......I have square away a place to stay and got my Flight....If any of the folks in here as an extra ticket to the game...PM me, I'd like to roll with some folks, or at least sit as close to some folks as possible....if not I am looking at tickets of Stub hub in sections 525, 508, 118, 146 and 131(really looking at this ticket).....
If any of the Brothers in here, has any input, advice or suggestions (or a ticket LOL) on which one to buy??
I'll be staying downtown...if anyone has bar, party or strip club suggestions.....please PM those also.....
Lastly, if any of the brother on here are hanging out near the area, or want to grab a beer or just meet up, PM me....I'm coming to hang out in the city and don't know much about where to go....


Humbly submitted this fourth day of September, in the year of our Lord Two Thousand and Thirteen, Douglass C Neidermeyer (LOL)

I don't have a problem with the thread, DaWg. Hopefully the other mods agree. Laughing


Just a reminder that posting personal info is a no-no. So just make sure that any exchange of names and numbers happens by PM, and not in the thread. And yeah, steer clear of the strip club talk. Keep it PG, boys.

Anyway, sounds like a great time. Wish I was gonna be up for that game, so we could hook up. I'm going to the Browns-Steelers game in November, though, so I can't complain.

depending on where downtown you are staying, the following should be walking distance...

- Horseshoe Casino on public square.
- Warehouse district (west 6th & west 9th street) for restaurants, bars, clubs, party atmosphere at night)
- East 4th street is a pedestrian only strip with upscale bars & restaurants, bowling alley, CLE Clothing if you want to buy some souvenirs)

Ohio City (west 25th street area) will be a quick taxi/bus ride across the river, that's my preferred area when it comes to bars/restaurants. the West Side Market is worth a trip on Saturday (i think its open til 5 or so) if you're into different foods.

Definitely good info on things to do.

Take a tour of the Great Lakes Brewery too, you get free samples!

I am PRINTING this out....thank you so much!!!
The place I'm staying is downtown, and about 1-1.5 miles to the stadium...and she said its near the "Warehouse" District....

Definitely hitting West Side Market then....

That's awesome man, you're going to be surprised with Cleveland given the rest of the country's ignorance to how great our city is. Not sure what your preferences are, but to follow on what fatpig said, if you're really into making it an authentic Cleveland experience, here are some different options:
- Don't care about money? Try Lola on E 4th street. It's one of iron-chef Michael Symon's restaurants and the hanger steak is amazing. It's pricey though and you'll want to make reservations (opentable.com) asap. It really showcases why Cleveland is one of the best restaurant cities in the country.
- Ohio City is a stone's throw away from downtown and a popular night life locale... Bar Cento there serves specialty pizzas that were voted the best in Ohio by food network. If you're going to the West Side market, it's right across the street. My suggestion is the sunny side (anything with a fried egg is pure bliss for me)
- Definitely got to hit up Slyman's deli for lunch on Friday or Saturday (this is a must!). Best corned beef sandwich...ever.... just keep in mind they're only open til 2:30pm.
- A personal favorite for a bar if you're looking for something a little less jam-packed and with more breathing room is the Harbor Inn in the flats. It's fairly close to ...*cough*certain entertainment.... and is probably the most reasonably priced bar in the city, although if you show up before 11:30 you might be one of five people in the joint.
...other than that, stop at the Barley House on W 6th and then grab an over-stuffed sandwich at Panini's and you'll be a happy camper. Enjoy Cleveland, it really has a lot to offer.

West 6th street and west 9th are very fun. U like sushi we have sushi rock off west 6th. The chocolate bar is very fun off of Euclid near CSU. like steak? Go to brasas. All you can eat brazilian steakhouse for $40 a person off of west 9th.

Not far at all. Just west. Pretty cheap taxi ride.
Also like a 5 min walk from the west side market. Probably best to hit both of those around lunch on saturday, easily two of the best things to do as a tourist in cleveland.

It seems expensive but for the quality of food you get at Lola its a hell of a deal. Have had two of the best meals of my life at that place and the cost would have been at least double out here in NY. If you want some high class dining but can't get into Lola check out L'Albetros near my alma mater Case Western on the east side. Cozy little french place with outstanding food and service.
