The anarchists and the cops are cool...and on opposite pages, yet. Nice touch.
The rest? Meh. Too Derf-y. I was disappointed. I expected something a lot better.

So... how do you pronounce it? bare-uh-BEE-coo? ba-RAB-i-cue?
I went in to a ladies restroom at a truckstop several years ago (I am a female) and there were two men dressed as women (hookers to be exact) shaving their faces at the sink. I was not about to use the bathroom with two dudes in there, I don't care how they "identified".!!! I had to get the manager and he chased them out (it wasn't the first time, apparently).
I'm going to identify with the gender that has the shortest restroom line and no one can do a damn thing about it. MUHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAA!!!
This is crap. WTF does he think he is ? And shame on the Agora for sponsoring his Concert . The RNC is bringing millions of dollars to Cleveland and this asshole who I've never heard of gets praise for bashing all Republicans. I beg to differ on who is psychologically misfitted here. Just another evil dimbass Liberal without a clue in the world. .
Ted Cruz as the Zodiac Killer....nice
If you have a cock and balls, use the men's room!!!!! When you have them removed, use the ladies.
As a male, I couldnt care less. But I wonder how women feel about this. And how many of them are being honest about it.
As a degreed, hospitality person, I agree about the service. "NO PROBLEM" is not the proper response to "THANK YOU" I also cannot figure out how servers are slammed with 2 tables of 2 tops.
DFRAN nailed it with their comments.
I agree with the critic about cab service. I usually Uber because the cabbies don't know landmarks and popular spots. As far as food service goes, and as a former waitress who has worked in many upscale restaurants here and Florida, excellent service is rare and in dire need of direction. I hate when servers "raffle off" your food and interrupt your conversation with friends because they can't keep track of who ordered what. Isn't that the point of writing it down? I would have lost my job in many places I worked if I did that!
It is a tough job but you need to have a personality or you won't get repeat customers.
Such a great show! Just wanted to note the title of "I Was Made For You" is actually "The Story." Thanks for your coverage - love reading your work.
Where was the photo of the cheese display taken?
The audio on this podcast is terrible. One guy is too quiet and the other's mic is too hot. C'mon guys, check your levels first.
Social media is renowned for daily political statements that run the gamut from ambitiously tasteful to extremely tasteless. Isaiah Crowell, like any netizen, has the right to sound off anytime.....and the employer has the right to determine any punishment based on the fallout from the comments.
It has been my personal experience that in general, Cleveland has good to great (rarely is it excellent) service. Having said that, it tends to be, in style, casual instead of professional even in the "fancy" spots,
I don't dare speak for him, but I suspect that may be what he is pointing out. In general, in other major culinary hotspots, the service starts moving into a level of professionalism that is noticeable versus casual treatment.
If taken to heart, the opinions (that's all they are at the end) of food critics like him is important to generate improvements. As is their usual procedure, you can be almost guaranteed that he will make a follow up visit in the next few months. Hopefully, he will find in those visits that the points he presented were addressed.
BY the way, I do agree with his one-liner about the service at Butcher and the Brewer. That place is generally really good, but even at the bar, they get overwhelmed with the usual crowds and you can indeed be ignored or overlooked for minutes at a time. I've personally experienced this multiple times.
Having said that, I've been to many well-known restaurants in the DC area where the exact same or worst has happened to me.
I have to agree with the cab comments he had. I've had drivers, both in Uber and normal cabs, not know where main landmarks are, such as The Q/Gund Arena and the Airport (yes, KCLE, I was as shocked as a tourist/visitor might be, trying to help guide the driver to one of the few places someone needs to know how to get there). I don't know why some drivers sign up to drive for Uber et. al. but a "more than just the highways knowledge" of Cleveland is definitely required for all drivers before we can progress.
Having just moved to Cleveland from Chicago, I'm sorry to have to say that I agree. I love a good come back story and I'm really pulling for Cleveland. If this city wants to be considered a world class destination, they are going to need to step it up quite a bit. I've been out to many of the places mentioned in the article and in most cases the service was apathetic, slow, or disorganized. Hoping it's just growing pains.
I've lived in Chicago almost 10 years and traffic has never been a problem for me at all. That's because I get everywhere on public transportation...something you can't do so well in Cleveland. Also, you save thousands upon thousands of dollars over the years by not buying, gassing up, repairing, and insuring a car.
Cleveland blows. Everyone knows that. Why the RNC would pick that place is symptomatic of the party's problems. Go Donald!!!!!!!
One thing I really hope to see (or hear) in this film is the mid-atlantic accent. I think it truly defines film of the 1930s and is absolutely essential to emulate! There's a great post about it here: http://www.cmdnyc.com/cities/los-angeles-mid-atlantic-accent
Regardless, im actually quite interested in checking out the movie! I think it'll be decent.
