Re: “The Barking Spider Tavern to Close After 30th Anniversary Celebration

This is a very sad day for Cleveland. The Spider is a great and very unique bar and live music venue. There is no other bar like it in Cleveland or anywhere else that I’ve travelled to. Martin was a fantastic person and has been missed, but Jenna has been doing a fantastic job. I have listened to great music and discussed everything from science to religion to politics with complete strangers there. I stopped in tonight and it was a bit sombre, but everyone was reminiscing about all their great memories. I will be back Sunday for one last time and will have a deep void inside me with the loss of this institution. The Spider had a fantastic 30 year run and Cleveland should very thankful.

@Rr, Case owns the building and the Spider leases it from them. Sadly, I expect a parking lot in that space within the next couple years.

Re: “End of an Era: Grovewood Tavern Closes its Doors After 16 Years

This is really sad news. I've been going to the Grovewood for years and was last there a month or so ago. With so many great restaurants in Cleveland I would only make it there a few times a year, but always had a great meal, drinks, and service there.
