Re: “The Best and Worst Local Dining Trends of 2016

RE: Trattner's comment on Food Halls. Since when is getting a bunch of food trucks together and putting a roof over them such a great thing? It's not. Trattner is always whining about how Cleveland is "behind" other cities. Well, Tratt, did it ever occur to you that not doing the same exact thing as everyone else is ok? I've been to several food halls in several cities, and they are mostly junky trucks with bad food and people who are clueless enough to stand in line for really long time so they can feel better about themselves. Just because other cities are doing it doesn't make it cool. Besides, Cleveland has enough interesting places to keep a food lover busy without resorting to standing in a parking lot with ten "gourmet" taco trucks or poke trucks serving badly stored tuna in 95 degree weather. It's people like Trattner who can't seem to embrace the contrarian attitide that makes Cleveland unique. Cleveland doesn't do it like everyone else? Too bad. Cleveland doesn't have to.

Re: “The Best and Worst Local Dining Trends of 2016

The commentary on local breweries seems a bit confused. Hansa, Goldhorn, and Buckeye COMBINED are about 3% the size of Great Lakes, the largest brewery in the area. The reluctance to support local breweries while finding no fault with the intense competition of new out-of-towners coming to the area smacks of contradiction. By anyone's account, Cleveland is the furthest behind in breweries per capita of any comparably-sized Midwestern city, let alone major Ohio cities.

Re: “Yes, I Moved to Cleveland and You Should Too

Look, Cleveland is OK, but merely just OK. The reason why real estate is cheaper here is because it's more BORING and BLAND here! Once you've experienced the good food, orchestra, zoo, theatres, metroparks, etc., there is nothing much else to do here. Lake Erie is a joke of a mud puddle, compared to the great salt water beaches of America, the traffic lights are timed to stop you from advancing a few blocks at a time when driving, and the culture is a lot more homogenous than the more larger cities and metro areas. Drive just a few miles away from Cleveland proper, and you enter vast swaths of unexciting farmland. The people that diss Los Angeles, Boston, New York, Chicago, etc. are usually the ones that can't AFFORD it! I've lived in some of those cities, and I would, without hesitation move back if I could! But for now, i'm STUCK in Cleveland!

Re: “Cleveland 2021: Jackson Press Conference Leaves City Puzzled About Possible Fifth Term as Mayor

Legacy? A highly dysfunctional and failing school system. City services at the best are terrible. Pot holes everywhere. Leaf pick-up only occurs when the wind blows. A police department under the watch of the federal government. A health department that cannot find a solution to a lead problem. City council being led blindly and making bad decisions daily based upon fear. That's right, give this clown 4 more years.

Re: “The Very Rev. Tracey Lind

It is also worth noting that during the regular program year (September-June) Trinity has a more traditional choral Eucharist at 11:15am with the same preacher and sermon as the earlier services.

Re: “Myra Rosario

Myra Rosario is one of the most talented Hispanic entrepreneurs in Northeast Ohio. I am completely amazed how she has been able to single handedly bring recognition to over 100 local Latin-owned business and Latin non-profit organizations. She is an inspiration to my daughter and I am happy to see positive role models in our Latino community.

Thank you Myra for shining brightly...

Re: “Stefan Was

After visiting many tiki bars around the US and finding it filled with pretentious people, it was a breath of fresh air when Stefan opened Porco. Cheers to you my friend.

Re: “Stefan Was

What a wonderfully well written article, it does better than most at capturing the spirit of Porco. I am lucky enough to call Stefan my friend. He and Anne Marie are like a bug light for magnificent people. When you walk into Porco you'll feel it, there is a lot of love in that room.
