The Browns have an off day today, which meant no curfew last night, which meant Johnny Manziel could finally enjoy the rich bar culture that Middleburg Heights/Berea has to offer.
We're more of a Mike's Bar and Grill sort of bunch, but whatever floats Johnny's $2 draft beer.
Why we’re screaming: Cleveland isn’t just for LeBron fanatics and disappointed football fans. Ice cream connoisseurs are in for a treat at Honey Hut (there is also a spot in nearby Brecksville). Inside, expect to find classics like cookies n’ cream and mint chocolate chip, along with surprises like honey pecan and orange blossom.Columbus-based Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams ranked number five.
Why we’re screaming: Jeni’s has “scoop shops” across the United States, but for the true ice cream aficionado, make a stop at the company’s original Columbus location. There you will find classics like salted caramel and constantly updated limited-edition and seasonal flavors like roasted strawberry buttermilk.If you haven't yet popped in to these local creameries, do so now, before summer's end.

In a recent interview in which he talked about the “wildness” of Gogol Bordello’s live shows, singer Eugene Hutz explained that his approach to performing live isn’t just about running around stage like some kind of animal that had just been let loose from captivity. “The other aspect is actual craft,” he explained. “That craft is what keeps the attention and feeds people in other ways. No energy can sustain attention if it’s not guided.” That craft was on full display last night at House of Blues where Hutz and his six-piece band put on a high-energy show that started strong and didn’t let up for two hours. Sure, the band played with furious punk rock energy (think Iggy and the Stooges) but the group also alternated between electric and acoustic instrumentation and showed just how much Hutz has evolved as a singer and songwriter.
