Re: “An Excerpt From: 'You're Welcome, Cleveland; How I Helped LeBron James Win a Championship and Save a City'

Shoulda either run this overlong diatribe next fall, on Yum Kippers, or eschewed this chapter entirely...for one on LeBron...or on Cleveland...or sports, period.

And please, spare me the slef-hating Jew replies, folks...as One of The Tribe (the ORIGINAL Tribe), I hate the Slefs, too. Never forgive, never forget, and the awful memories of the 1915 Slefian Massacre will never die.

So I click the clickbait to read about sports or basketball or Cleveland's now-dead curse, and what do I get? Jewish wine. Kosher, yet. Or maybe this was a last-minute entry because of the recent JCC threats and Agent Orange's shrugs regarding the rising activities of the Jew-haters? Ya think?

Nu, if that was your real reason for shilling for this putz, then mazeltov, you shaygetz boychiks...your hearts are in the right place after all.

Oy, vey...so this nudnik's not such a bad writer, but in this case, Sam, you made the rants too long.

Re: “Downtown Cleveland Alliance Returns 26 Scene Boxes to the Streets After Confiscating Them Under Very Questionable Circumstances

If those had been PD boxes, would their attorneys be all over the DCA like flies on dogshit? Damn betcha!

Apparently, this is an old tactic, as you have clearly shown by mentioning the1985 and 1994 incidents. Time to lawyer up and give DCA the ass-kicking they deserve...punitive and compensatory damages!

Keep up the good work, keep covering the "real" news that the mainstream outlets ignore, get some more weekly drop-off points on the Far West Side, and pay no attention to the asswipes behind the curtain, like the anonymous troll above.

Has Scene advocated re-opening Public Square to bus traffic? I haven't checked, but my guess is "yes". That would upset our illustrious mayor no end.

Um....they're fucking ugly and are used a toilets by homeless folks and drunks. Maintain your shit before you call other people out for trying to help you do it. Scene - get your shit together. Cover real news and get over yourself.

Re: “Downtown Cleveland Alliance Returns 26 Scene Boxes to the Streets After Confiscating Them Under Very Questionable Circumstances

You folks need to make a careful inspection of the returned boxes.

If, as the DCA claims, all 26 boxes "had been knocked over by wind or by sidewalk plows", then each and every box would be damaged as a result. Each box would would show signs of recent scrapes, dents, scratches, broken widow panes and paint damage (particularly the boxes that had been hit by the sidewalk plows).

If the boxes are returned to you in pristine condition, lacking any recent damage, I'd say that's prima facie evidence that the DCA is certainly lying about why they grabbed these boxes.

This might be evidence that would interest a prosecutor, no ? It's not like they can just return the boxes, and all is forgiven with the law. I doubt seriously a bank robber would get off scott free with the prosecutor if he simply agreed to return the money. How is this situation any different ?

Keep fighting the fight.

Heather Holmes could be lying her way into a cushy PR job inside the mayor's office.

Re: “Downtown Cleveland Alliance Returns 26 Scene Boxes to the Streets After Confiscating Them Under Very Questionable Circumstances

A scene playing itself out in cities across the country.....so-called community improvement organizations (read: gentrification catalysts) wanting everything to be shiny and harmonious so that the city can live up to their marketing pitches. Remove whatever's in the way (newspaper boxes, dissent, anything that isn't a cute coffee shop or new eatery, etc etc etc).

Yup.

My dad worked at Carlisle for 32 years and was covered in black dust all the time. Would shower at the plant and still have it on him. He had a stroke in 2002 and has had circulatory issues and heart issues. I wonder if its connected?

Re: “Excitement Over Cleveland's Brewery Explosion Has Given Way to Questions of a Brewery Bubble

I'm a bar manager at a Cleveland spot that has over 20 taps of craft beer. We were buying Platform from the beginning and now have all but stopped. The amount of shitty kegs weve gotten was over the top. IPA shouldnt taste like vegetables and have floaty clumps in it. The owners are assholes and have burned bridges all across the industry. One of them was in my bar and acted like the king of clevelands beer. Wouldnt stop shit talking every other brewery. Its prety bad when all your peers are interviewed and no one has a nice thing to say about you.

Re: “Excitement Over Cleveland's Brewery Explosion Has Given Way to Questions of a Brewery Bubble

The consistency issue with Platform Brewery is that they throw out all these one-offs. That contributes to why their beers can be so hit or miss. You simply don't have the time to refine a recipe. I like trying new things but I like to also have some confidence that it'll be good.

They have definitely had some ridiculous quality issues since their first brewer left. There was a batch of cans that had mold floating in the beer and I've heard from multiple people that they've found bees/flies in the cans. That simply disgusting.

When your main objective is to expand like crazy, quality always takes a back seat.

Speed Merchant used to be a great beer but it's often just terrible. Like undrinkable. I hope they turn it around because slick marketing will only last for so long.
