I remember three of the shows I saw there although I think I was there more than that. I saw Henny Youngman and Girls, Girls, Girls. They were Vegas style dancers with the huge headdresses and were otherwise topless. When the show started the girls would run down the aisles covering their breasts with their hands. As the show progressed they dropped their hands to their sides while they were in the aisles. I had an aisle seat and one of the girls stopped right next to me with her hands at her side, she turned and smiled at me, then dipped her headdress right in my face. I laughed my ass off.
Henny was on stage afterwards for over an hour, and when he left the stage my face hurt from laughing so much. He was truly the King of the One-liners.
I also saw Johnny Mathis there. His opening act was a little known, at that time, comedian named Jerry Seinfeld.
The last act I saw there was Dan Fogelberg. The only thing disappointing about that was that he didn't sing my favorite song, Longer. My wife and I had that song sung at our wedding, but I guess Dan had been divorced from the woman he wrote the song for, so he no longer performed it during his concerts.
Not one person myself included is going to travel to the new location with any frequency whatsoever.
They had a great Cleveland Hts area family following that is now lost.
The old tai orchid on lee would have worked well but that's no longer available.
Cobear-that was his only job to do as head of Cleveland Pride and he failed miserably. There was not one single permit filed with the City so that shows you he did NOTHING. His past is checkered with financial "accountability" of organizations he has been head of. His leadership of Cleveland Pride has been a complete failure with his number one priority being HIMSELF and any financial gain he can get out of it.
There are music/pop culture icons.....and there is Johnny Cash.
Disappointing, but this is the trend (move out of cool old space into generic strip-mall location, see: Avon). One can only wonder if the Lakewood store, currently located in a beautiful old racquet club, has its days numbered.
WOW!! That's a great news. I'm looking for a recipe called Grilled Corn.
Can i get it there?
I am really am amazed with the self-entitlement of some of the commenters.
Todd apparently stepped up to the plate when no one else would. Most of the complainers just sit around a bar all year just expecting a massive Pride event to magically appear once a year, an event they may or may not patronize, depending on their whim, and, if they attend, belligerently hand over a $5 donation like it was their life savings -- as if they were funding anything more than a minute fraction of a fraction of the costs of mounting such an event.
Want to know what the real problem is, folks? Check a mirror -- for something other than plucked eyebrows.
Gonna have to make the drinks a whole lot stronger (or train bartenders who done use mixes) if you are going to attempt to compete with Fox and hound.
... "a wide array of musical styles... punk, folk, ambient noise and 'sequenced minimalism' (wtf?). Plus snarling guitars and hiccupping vocals...quite a racket."
The band hosts a listening parting? Indeed. I would probably walk after far less than a minute...BUT...having worked in a few libraries in my lifetime..."Duo Decibel System" is one of the BEST band names EVER. Three chuckles from Chuckles, dudes!
Chuckles the Clown
all of them need to close. nedd to close desperatley. worst place in the city by far. FAR
dirty staff, dirty building, lousy food, horrendous service
lizardville isnt worth the dumpster outside either
Mikes Rd. is not that far and there's a Lizardville, too.
I can say that myself have been there at least twice.
It is a shame but wish them the best in the new location. I wonder who is moving in.. "Two" downtown locations?? The best location is either the original one on miles or the one in peninsula!!
I always loved this one. Too crowded. Nothing else to complain about. We would go there after 2600 meetings in the Arabica. I miss Coventry.
with a huge lot and deck across the street, it's easier to park in Coventry than downtown--where they have *two* locations. so...like...can't be parking. but they're entitled to think so, I suppose.
Ugh. I have no interest in going to Mayfield Hts for any reason. I wish them well on their new venture.
We all know he is financial ruin- his bath house was still planning to run a Pride event even after the cancellation- time for new blood and new ideas- Pride has been a sad event for the last few years- charging for entry and awful entertainment- the only main concern was the beer garden area ( to generate revenue)- he should admit his incompetency and lack of planning skills- glad to see him go- now he can spend more time at his bath house-
There appears to be a number of financial questions which will not - nor should not - disappear when Saporito wraps up whatever,
Dang it's "sold out" already?
Incomptent douche. Don't let the door hit ya. Thank you, Michael McIntyre.
