Re: “Best Vegan

Tommy's is great! I went just before I ended up becoming vegetarian a few years back and I still remember what I had, it was that good. Mmm, felafel. They have so many awesome options.

Re: “Best German

From this advice I went here last night, it was terrible. The food was mediocre at best some of it was down right bad. The service was terrible took over an hour to get our food after we ordered. It was just my husband and I not a large party. The schnitzel was ok but the sausages and side dishes were terrible.

Re: “Best Hookah Bar

I hadn't been to a hookah bar in a long time, and I never would have even thought about going here, but we finished dinner & didn't feel like going home. Somehow, we looked up and stumbled upon this Lounge . It was a really great hidden gem!

The ambiance was typical hookah bar- Middle Eastern decor, lots of comfy couches, dark lighting. The hookahs were very good and were serviced regularly. The music was fantastic, which was perfect. Enough to feel like you were having a night out, but not so loud that you can't have a conversation. They even have a private/VIP room. The seating is comfortable and the service is excellent.

Re: “Best Bartender

10 friends on a trip to see the Rock and Rock HoF went to eat at the Nauti Mermaid on Monday night (6/23/14). We were lucky to have Tim wait on us. He was great! We had a wonderful experience that was topped off with his cherry/lemon magic trick!!

Re: “Best Bar You Can Only Go to One Day a Week

Millie was the best! Tommy keeps it going and everyone is so generous and kind to plant the flowers and make it look so beautiful on the outside as much as Millie was beautiful on the inside...we all miss her....

Re: “Best Hip Hop Club

No need to kick Cleveland while it is down. It is a bit exaggerated to say true leader and valuable contributor when he rambling off everyone else's resume to validate existence. The resume of others looks like the man next to the man/men

Re: “Best Hip Hop Club

Cleveland Hip-Hop went from being great at one time to TOTALLY sucking. Not quite sure what happened. Seems like alot of people in Cleveland are trying to be something they are not. I went to a party in Pittsburgh and it seems like cleveland is trying to copy the Pittsburgh scene. Cleveland can't quite do it right. Knowing what cleveland used to be I would have to give this rating a thumbs down and an absolute misrepresentation of hip-hop.

Re: “Best of Cleveland 2014

Every other "best of cleveland" list at least tends to stick to locally owned and operated. This list is sad. Our city is known for having the best food and drink in the country and you're going to give awards to corporate businesses like winking lizard? Half of these winners shouldn't have even been allowed in the running. Take a note from other cleveland best of awards and stick to CLEVELAND ONLY winners. Shame, this is embarrassing for you scene magazine.

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
