Re: “Best Burger/ Best Fries

His fries are not fresh cut. His staff says the fries are frozen.
Don't get me wrong. His burgers are great. How does a famous chef get away with serving frozen fries? Terrible choice for fries.

Re: “Best of Cleveland 2014

Been reading these BEST of CLEVELAND lists for a good 20 years now...and they're getting more laughable and ridiculous every year. If Cleveland is getting better, why are these lists getting worse? It's neither the categories nor the's the people who ultimately pick them. The readers. Fewer every year, and more willing to select chain mediocrity, in too many categories.

I do realize that the "BEST of" issue is by far the fattest SCENE of the year (as it also is in other cities) and generates huge ad revenues as the venues and eateries and businesses gear up for the all-too-short Cleveland summer season...but maybe it's time to finally pull the plug. Some of the winners made me cringe. Les Roberts? Crocker Park? Rover? Townhall? Seriously? This is the "best" we've got? I don't think so!

And you're a print rag, right? Why the need for any web and social media categories at all? Why pander to the people who no longer read?

Maybe just blow this whole concept off, after all these years, and put out a bigger Guide to Cleveland or a bigger Summer Guide...or just stop letting the readers vote with their posterior orifices? The fans ruined the MLB All-Star balloting, and it was denied to them for many years. Maybe you need to do the same.

Expecting even less in 2015,

Re: “Best Hip Hop Club

A few Sanctuary Cleveland National Acts:

Rich Medina - April 5, 2014 (Probably the world's most widely sought after DJ aside from DJ Spinna) And by the way ... DJ Spinna appears at Sanctuary Cleveland on August 3, 2014.

NYC I Love Vinyl Crew - November 15, 2013 (a world famous DJ crew which includes Ge-Ology if you've ever heard music from Mos Def and Talib Kweli, you know who this is).

J. Rawls, October 5, 2013 (If you've ever heard music from Mos Def, Talib Kweli, Lone Catalysts, or pretty much anything on Rawkus Records, you know who this is).

Daz-I-Kue - August 3, 2013 (London DJ, founder of Bugz in the Attic)

Omar - July 14, 2013 (I know you know who this is, I won't even insult you).

Erik Rico - March 2, 2013 (if you've heard music from Tupac, Q-tip, Digable Planets, you should know him).

Just to name a few ...

Re: “Best Hip Hop Club

Touch being the best hip-hop club is about as phony Colin Powell saying Iraq had weapons of mass destruction. I guess I can see why they would win when the bar in Cleveland is so low all you would have to do is put on a Run DMC record and you could potentially win. As for national acts...who are they and when were they there? Anyone from out of town can be considered national I guess. Hey chipper call in DJ WMD from sandusky and we will have a national act

Re: “Best School District

It makes me sad when others find a way to punish communities with diversity. Is it fair to test all children with the same test- including children who just came to this country a few months ago?

Re: “Best Music Venue

House of Blues is a beautiful venue, i think maybe the Grog Shop would have benefited from this more though?
