Re: “Street Sweeping Returns to Cleveland

They did my street off Buckeye last Monday, but we have 3 abandoned cars on the street that I called the police about probably 5 times over the past month or so and still 2 of them sit. They did tow the one without plates last week. The other two have plates, but they have flat tires, rusted out, never move and one has three broken windows. The police need to do their jobs too, so the streets can actually be cleaned. And I wonder how old the sweeper is, because it didnt pick up much.

If the Browns take a second day flier on quarterback Josh Dobbs.....the low risk and potential solid reward in a year or two may help solidify the long-term vision of this "computer world" regime.

Re: “Welcome to Best of Cleveland 2017

This should be called Best of Greater Cleveland if you're going to include places that aren't in the city limits. Secondly, this is just sad that everything is on the 'west side'. Let your gentrification colors fly...

Re: “Puente Viejo Takes the Tried and True Mexican Menu Up a Level in Playhouse Square

We found this place about a month ago and we LOVE it! We will be going back again and again before our showtime at Playhouse Square! The complimentary chips and salsa are the best - perfectly salted, perfectly warm, perfectly thin tortilla chips with the best salsa...I can't even tell you. And if you want more choices, order the guacamole or go to the taco bar and try some of their other salsa options. Tuesday night is "Taco Tuesday" and you can get tacos a la carte for $2 a piece (or $2.50 for fish or shrimp). No necessarily required, but reservations accepted. When you don't want to chance it before a show, make a quick reservation and you will be ensured a quick turnaround time. 5 Stars in my book!

The entire north side of Detroit along the proposed land is a fucking parking lot.

Re: “Q Deal Citizen Opposition Gears Up for Voter Referendum

I'll be happy to add my signature to this. If they want us to drop 88 million as a city, they have to give us a whole lot more than what they're offering. A good business deal has to be fair for both sides.

Re: “A Little History of Brownie the Elf

I'm from Cleveland and this is the most embarrassing representative for a football team. Football is a masculine sport and teams are supposed to exude strength and power. How is a cute lil elf supposed to represent a football team? I can't believe these idiots in marketing. There is no CUTE in football and the Browns by their lousy play and embarrassing elf and uniforms is why they will never change their image as the joke of the NFL.

Re: “Project 29 Joining Westside's High-End Apartment Boom, Stoking Neighborhood 'Growing Pains'

Well, at least we see eye-to-eye on the stupidity of the use of "Hingetown"...and even SCENE is starting to agree...they made fun of it in their latest "Best of Cleveland" issue.

When nobody ever uses the "designated nomenclature"...look no further for examples than at at some of our biggest bridges and our's a stupid name. Hope Memorial, Veterans Memorial, and Progressive have never caught on or become commonly used. Neither will this one.

West 29th and Detroit will always be part of Ohio City, as it should be, regardless of how gentrified it becomes, and how many yupsters and hipsters are stacked into its skies like a game of Jenga.

Re: “Street Sweeping Returns to Cleveland

So now they will once again sweep twice a year? Instead of once a year or NEVER at all?

The city used to do their street cleaning in spring (April-May) or early summer (June), and then again in November, to get the leaves out of the way for the snowplows, and so the sewers wouldn't get clogged up with wet leaves. Sometimes, if the snow came early, they might wait until December. Some winters, they never came at all. This was the way it was a decade ago, and going back 25 years.

But NOW they come but ONCE a year, in summer...if they even come at all. And too many lazy jamokes still push their leaves into the street every fall, and leave them at the curb...mainly because they are still stupidly awaiting the coming of the leaf fairies. In late winter and spring, the same crap is STILL there. That's not the city's fault. Wake up, sheeple!

Why do city streets need more sweeping than ever? Because... the pothole crews leave the loose and excess patching material on the pavements, and sweep all that black crud to curbside. I usually end up having to dispose of that junk in the big black trash container.

But now I can eagerly wait for the city to do another of the jobs we all supposedly pay for, probably by July. Oh, the joys of living in Cleveland...

Re: “Street Sweeping Returns to Cleveland

Yes, finally. I live on the border of Shaker Square and Mt. Pleasant area and haven't seen this service in years. Now if they would only go back to flushing out the water hydrants too. I have one on my tree lawn that hasn't been flushed in a while. I hope this is done on a regular basis and not just one time and that's it for the next five years.

Reserve now -- there may be a Quicken Loans Arena fee popping up in the coming months.
