Re: “GCC Takes Q Deal Opposition to Dan Gilbert's Doorstep in Detroit

Yawn. More troublemakers with time in their hands. Keep to saving souls and stay out of politics. F***ing left wing organizations infiltrate everything.

Re: “Classic Rocker Todd Rundgren to Play House of Blues in May

It will be an unpredictably pleasing show if Todd has "Singring and the Glass Guitar (An Electrified Fairytale)" on the playlist.

Re: “Our Favorite Dumb Bad Yelp Reviews of Cleveland Restaurants

I think you need to look up the definition of good. You may shock yourself on a simple refresher. Any reader would understand the word good...verses fabulous, delicious, a new favorite and must return...etc., but good means just what it relates. Very good meaning above and beyond. We learn these words early. I'm surprised you have not learned them and find them elementary because their use is basic and full of information. Lincoln'St Gettysburg address was made up of simple uncomplicated words and is heralded as one of the greatest speeches of all time. As my Harvard English Prof once explained, "All words are good words when used in the proper context." Did you miss this in school? These words good, fair and bad should flag an intelligent person. "If you prefer, we could write: "The French Onion Soup was good, not fabulous, a bit salty for my tastes, and the prep chef didn't dice the onions correctly, the cheese seemed a tad old and was probably melted in a microwave because the top was not that perfect brown caramelized color. In addition, the bread was at the bottom of the bowl instead of the top...hmmm what does this mean? Why hide the bread? Very unconventional!" Now, I travel and I Yelp. I use Yelp and other sites to find what I desire. Every city has its lingo. Obnoxious or not. I'm not from Cleveland, but I've learned there's a nasty underside and a good above board side. For the most part, it's blue collar. Even the educated ones are probably from a blue collar background and education doesn't take that color off your collar. So, there you have a critical review of your review as a whole...and possibly yourself as well. You article seemed extremely blue.

Re: “Cleveland Mayoral Candidate Brandon Chrostowski Says He's Called to Lead

Language aside, he's absolutely right that Frank Jackson needs to go. At least Brandon has some energy, something lacking at city hall in recent years...

He will be lucky to end up with 1% of the primary vote.....this guy is a combination of Ricky Pittman and Ken Lanci.

Cosplayers are often the target of jokes......but are these fans any different than the ones who proudly wear team garb and/or paint their faces in primary uniform colors to support their favorite pro or college club at a regular season or playoff game?

Re: “That "Tiny House Experiment" in Detroit Shoreway Pretty Much Failed

Why would anyone pay over $100,000 to live in a 600sq ft house that sits directly across the street from multiple run down properties occupied by people with face tattoos?
Wrong location plain and simple.
This 'experiment' failed because it was just another cash grab, not an actual attempt to start a tiny house community.

Re: “Saucisson Announces Opening Day for Slavic Village Butcher Shop

I went Saturday and the place is really nice. Melissa and Penny seem really excited to be finally open and are as friendly as usual. I snagged some currywurst, bacon, chorizo, pork tenderloin, ground beef, maple sausages, duck rillettes, lamb rillettes, pork and corn soup, spicy pickles. I'll be back and couldn't be happier that they have a permanent spot with regular hours. The quality they provide is second to none.

Re: “Fresh and Meaty Burgers Tastefully Fill Void Between Fast Food and Sit-Down

They do make a tasty burger. I've gone several times already and usually get the king and fries, eating it across the street at Parnell's Pub while enjoying a pint of Guinness. At $8 for a king, fries, and drink it's the same price as a double combo at Wendy's and much, much better. They also make Five Guys look and taste like cat food.

Re: “Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Chuck Berry Dies at 90

Chuck Berry's only #1 single in the USA came in 1972......through the novelty song - "My Ding-a-Ling" - which was recorded live in February 1972 during the Lanchester Arts Festival in Coventry, England. Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Dave Bartholomew wrote and first recorded the song in January 1952.

Re: “That "Tiny House Experiment" in Detroit Shoreway Pretty Much Failed

I think that this project failed because it was TOO innovative...if they hadn't overthought it, they'd have recognized that the houses were going to be way too expensive, especially in a city that is absolutely loaded with cheap housing stock. A tiny house works for people because it is cheap, costing at most what a rental would cost. This house is too big, and too expensive. My 3-bedroom 1200 sq ft condo in North Olmsted cost me little more than half of what these are selling for. It's not rocket science...build them cheap in a safe enough neighborhood and they will be much more likely to sell. Most urban tiny house communities are for economic and yet dignified housing for the homeless, those trying to get back on their feet (like veterans), and people who just want to minimize their cost of living. That would be incredibly useful in a city like Cleveland, but you can't have the starting price be a $1,000/month house payment! Make it somewhere closer to $500 or $600 and put it in a nice enough neighborhood, and then you've got something. That's not innovative, it's just not overthinking and overdoing it!

Re: “That "Tiny House Experiment" in Detroit Shoreway Pretty Much Failed

The cost of living is too affordable in Cleveland for this to have Ben a viable option. One could retro-fit a small home in CLE in say Slavic village, cudell, (south of Lorain) Ohio city, st. Clair -superior, fairfax, westpark for far less than $130-$150k. Plus have the space to grow in. If you're young and in the market for a small(ish) home you eventually will have to grow into your home for that kind of money. Cuz let's be honest, part of the reason the cost of living is so low is because the rate of income growth here is abysmal. There's so much wrong with this idea and kudos for "trying" to pass some mess but know your market next time.
