Re: “The Pastry Artist: Michelle Mattox

You are doing a great job Michelle! You've perservered through adversity and to cap it off you're a caring, compassionate, understanding individual and a genuinely loving person who appreciates the roads traveled as well as understands them. You're helpful and without judgement. You have the respect of you students and peers. Keep moving forward, no where but up from here on out!Continue to work hard and being patient. I love you

Re: “Advice To Our Younger Selves

So much of this is true!

I would tell myself to keep doin yo thang and taking all those naps because you will miss them terribly one day. On the flip side, you won't remember all the great sleep you got... you'll remember all the times you were exhausted as hell but went out anyway and had the best time ever.

Re: “Let's Play the College Debt Game!

So, yes this is funny, but it's so well done it's really scary at the same time. I have to say, the game play for this is solid and thought out, nice work on the game.

All that being said, student loans suck. This game is scary because any of these things can happen to you, you're basically already playing this game in real life to a degree. Good luck, hope you get a good roll.

Re: “Advice To Our Younger Selves

So hmm, advice to my younger self, huh? Never buy textbooks, you figured this out by sophomore year, but save yourself about $1500 and don't buy them Freshman year either. The best memories you're going to have is when "nothing is going on" and you and your friends decided to go out and make your own fun. Yes, the all-you-can-eat-buffet is tasty, and free, but you're not a chipmunk storing body fat for winter, pace yourself and show some restraint because those pounds are going to stay on you for about 7 years afterwards.

Re: “The 25 Essential Cleveland Restaurants

Wow, a half-dozen of Cleveland's finest restaurants in Tremont, what the heck is the world coming-to? When I lived there back in 1987 all we had was Miracle's, Steve's Friendly Bar, Sindy's Tavern., and the University Inn, plus the old Lawson's store if you were desperate too..

I can sure testify that Slyman's has great corned beef as I was a regular there 25 years or more ago too., and it used to be right up the street The Croation Tavern had a really decent open-faced strip-steak sandwich on their lunch menu for a decent price too, back when Joe ran the place.

Whatever happened to George's Kitchen out at Berea Rd and Triskett? They used to be one of the best breakfast restaurants around. I know The Dock in Lakewood is long-closed but the Tick Tock Tavern is still around too.

Whatever happened to Nighttown up on Cedar Hill or even Corky and Lennie's right off the end of the Van Aken rapid? Even the Harbor Inn was a decent place years ago too, and if you want fresh Amish butter I personally recommend Irene Dever's place at the West Side Market indoors, even though her daughter is running the operation now. too.

So what do you folks do for late-night dining after the bars close now? Back in the day we had the Best Steak House on Prospect that was open 24 hours, Hot Sauce Williams, even further back Fat Boy's in an old Burger Chef out on Euclid east of E. 55th St, the Hot Dog Inn on Lorain, the Shrimp Boat, and I can't remember the name of the place out at East 21st and Superior that used to have the Bag of Burgers for only $1.00 at 4:00 AM too. Not too bad for only $1.00 either.

Not too bad for not having lived in Cleveland since 1991, eh?

Re: “The Voice of Reason: Lea Kayali

This is some liberal trash who tries to ignore the Israeli atrocities and the ethnic cleansing Israel has ( still is) committed over the years and we are just ignore all this just to please everyone and not seem too "radical" that hashtag is trash and there will be no peace as long as Israel exist because of their ethno-religious supremacy which why it existed in the first place you know what hashtag would work #FreePalestine

Re: “The Bagel Guys: Dan Herbst and Geoff Hardman

I thought there was a Cleveland Style Bagel already! I'm from St Louis and when I visit Cleveland I always have to bring bagels back from my grandmas fav place there. I love them and they blow any bagels from my city out of the water! We need your business here in St Louis badly! Most people here don't know what they're missing.

Re: “The Yuckster: Yusuf Ali

I can vouch for Yusuf being hella funny as well as being a really good guy. I once asked him how he did it, how he was funny AND topical every time I saw him and his answer was the same as in this article - he just takes the mic and something happens.

Re: “The Sidekick: Erika Lauren

Very disappointing how often she doesn't reciprocate the behavior she praises Clevelanders for having. Too many times, I have witnessed this, as have others. I really wish she didn't act like that friendliness was beneath her. Maybe Chicago is exactly where she belongs. Honestly, don't compare Cleveland to Chicago and lack self awareness in the product that you are of your environment. As an up and coming public figure, it would behoove her to have as much loyalty to us in her actions(not just her words) as we have to her...

Re: “The Dirt Guy: Dan Brown

Hail Staniel Brown, and three cheers for a triumphant first year of entrepreneurial trials and tribulations! What herculean effort does it take to ferry across Cleveland Towne masses of the yeoman farmer’s lifeblood via mountain bicycle? Quadriceps of steel! Hamstrings of osmium! Calves of manganese! These physical traits along with an assiduous approach have served Brown well in his community leadership role, or as this article’s author puts it, ‘Dirt Guy’.

While his business has grown and the dynamic of the work has changed, Brown has admirably stayed true to his personal values regarding sustainability. As a student of ethics however, Mr. Brown will soon have to come to an ethical crossroads of his own. One man can only handle so many administrative tasks, and it is well known to any savvy socialite in Cleveland that Brown’s responsibility as a leader in the community will increase as he becomes commissioner of one of the city’s proudest and most prestigious fantasy football leagues. It will be interesting to see how Brown organizes his administration and delegates authority.

Is Brown ready to make the transition from street level to corner office? With our season’s kickoff in nary a couple fortnights, Staniel will be thrust into the shark tank, and each decision will be examined under the microscope, and handling drunken league insubordinates requires muscle. He has a solid base with his strong legs, but what of his upper body conditioning? Can he be the mythical titan, the Atlas, who carries this burden?

Yusuf's the man. Everyone has to see him once, because after that first time you'll become a fan!

Re: “The Yuckster: Yusuf Ali

I have seen Ali perform a ton of times! He is hilarious and is always updating his material so I am NEVER bored at his shows even if I see him a few time a week! He has also been on the Alan Cox radio show a few time and was great there too! And his social media post are sooo funny, follow him on instagram and twitter if you feel like laughing :):)

Re: “Towpath Trails and Bus Lines Provide Alternate Modes of Transportation

I'd also challenge the "kinda need a car" mentality that exists in Cleveland. It's definitely not do-able in every neighborhood, but I've been car-free in Cleveland for three or four years and I'm far from the only one. Most people (in any city) who say "you need a car" are people who drive a car. They also more thank likely live in a suburb and rarely (if ever) take transit themselves.
