Cleveland. You Gotta Be Regular.
We still get to keep our town, right?
The way World of Beer vanished within 24 hours, almost before anyone realized what was happening, makes it seem like a fly-by-night kind of operation instead of the steady, grounded and home-grown dining experiences afforded by its neighbors on "Restaurant Row" (this is the first time I've heard that term used in reference to Detroit Road in Lakewood, and I'm trying to adapt myself to using it. Restaurant Row, Restaurant Row, Restaurant Row). Matt's Melt and Eddie's Cerino's and Demetrios' Deagan's are all local restauranteur success stories, and I welcome another attempt at serving up local cuisine with some class.
Seems to me like a valuable lesson: going for the record isn't done all at once. You have to approach it by increments. You can't hit the world's record for arrests by doing more than petty theft. Grand larceny will land you in the courtroom for sure. Keep your thefts at the shoplifting level; the judge and/or prosecutor will blow it off rather than deal with the annoyance, the amounts will never get you jail time, and you'll get away with a lot more free merchandise--most of the crimes never even get any attention.
High fat, high calorie, and at a high cost; not the choice of the hipsters, the oldsters and the creative class that's starting to come into its own in Lakewood. The Root, I notice, has really taken off in the same time period that it took Five Guys to close down.
