Roasting marshmallows over the Cuyahoga River. Half Man, All Amazing. The Word of the Day is "Ѫ"
Making friends since 2012. And by making friends, I mean pissing people off.
Yeah, this place STILL has the best taco tuesdays in town. Nothing better than putting away 13 tacos and drinking a giant thing of beer for less than $20. The tacos are really good too, with a bunch of different flavors. We're not talking taco bell style meat either.

I love when people spend public dollars behind closed doors and won't tell me what's going on. It always makes me less suspicious of whats going on.
Great analysis, this is a really in depth look at the Cavs and their current situation. With recent injuries, looks like we won't get our true look during the golden state game after all.
I can see where maybe at some point it was decided that this was a good idea and something that would capture a student's attention. Oh the other hand, there are about 50,000 alarm bells ringing about how this is a bad idea and you shouldn't be putting this in front of students. So, yeah, looks like the better choice here is for the kids to think your math problems are boring.
I don't feel its worth it at all, NLC, and we don't have the Cavs to thank for our city turning around. We have the residents that felt pride in Cleveland and stood up for the city to thank for this turnaround. People want to live downtown now, people travel for the culinary scene and leave the city impressed. The Cavs just want to update the arena and get a whole bunch of money from the city to do it because they know the market in Cleveland is hot right now, and the city paying for it is better for the Cavs than the Cavs footing the bill or it not happening. But aglazen is right, we're represented by a bunch of politicians who are fighting each other for who can be first in line to bend over in front of the Cavs and grab their ankles. There is no one representing people opposed to this at the table, so thank goodness some people are able to crunch numbers, ask questions, and vocalize opinions about this.
I feel like my comment has been misconstrued. Nowhere in my comment do I reference race, @BrianWilson. You can call it culture, i'm choosing to focus on the community aspect and the deficiency that exists in that regard. I should also clarify that I blame all the people that have left East Cleveland for the current state of the city just as much as I do apathetic people. There are a lot of people left that still care a lot, but based on visuals that segment of the population is clearly outnumbered. No one is blaming the current population for economic collapse that is out of their control, but its not a stretch to say there are a lot of people that don't seem to care about how the city looks and what happens to it. And StoneCaster, when I've been on hard times, i didn't just blame bad luck. I had to acknowledge that change had to happen first with myself and my actions/attitude, and that's the same long, hard look in the mirror that some apathetic East Clevelanders need to take here, instead of just saying it's someone else's problem/fault or waiting for their neighbors to pick up the pieces instead. These comments don't come from joy in the misery of east cleveland, they come from frustration at the state of the city.
This is awesome news, I'd love to see the event live. I'll be keeping an eye out for more details once they get released, but it's a lot of fun to watch these athletes compete and get past some of the crazy obstacles.
I'm past the point of caring if a team is "going to leave" because they don't get what they want. We have major problems that need to be addressed in Cleveland, and this is what people put forward instead. It's sad, and its frustrating. Yes, it's nice to make the arena look nice and all that. But the true benefit and revenue that comes from this isn't going to benefit the local taxpayer at all. Yes the Cavs won the championship and Gilbert is paying a ton of luxury taxes to do so. But don't forget how much taxpayers have done for him - bringing in the Gilbert backed casino (which gave him so much cash it isn't funny), approving the sin tax, and basically handing our teams a whole bunch of money. So please don't try to tell me that we've spurned these poor teams over the years. We have been AMAZING to them. Literally the only thing we ask in return is to compete and make us proud. But, as soon as there is a threat to not get what they want at that immediate time, uh oh the team could leave pops up. That's a sad argument and a bunch of BS. But who honestly cares, because the decision makers that get all kinds of kick backs are going to push this through regardless.
Oh yeah, I love how because they won it's like the city owes the Cavs now. Well we never got any kind of refund for all the years they didn't win or do well. Grab your wallets, everyone, stadium renovations coming soon.
