Since launching his ridiculously successful B Spot (28699 Chagrin Blvd., 216-292-5567, bspotburgers.com) last year, the question for Michael Symon hasn't been if he would open another but when and where. Finally, those questions have answers. Look for the second B Spot (not counting the Q) to open in Strongsville sometime around the first of the year. Located at The Greens near the intersection of Royalton (Rt. 82) and Pearl roads, the restaurant will feature a familiar look and feel. "We want people to know that they are walking into a B Spot," says Symon.

The Feds were listening to all your favorite Cuyahoga County employees over the last few years, and tucked away in the dense indictments and filings of the past month are some exceedingly hilarious, salacious, and interesting quotes from Jimmy Dimora, Frank Russo, and the rest of the players.

Neil Diamond was so excited by the announcement today that he's a Rock Hall nominee that he cracked a nice, cold Coke, then posed for this dark, dark picture that he tweeted out to his fans.
We assume he'll continue the celebration later with some pornography. Oh, what a perfect segue to the famous "Storytellers" SNL sketch, which you'll find after the jump. (Also, Diamond is probably not celebrating with porn, but you never know.)
It’s the fifth week in September and 32-year-old Dartavia Beck is having the Best Week Ever — and by best, we mean the best thing that can happen to an alleged asshole who knocks around his wife and kid: getting busted for having sex with a girl who, oops, forgot to say she was 14.
President Jimmy Carter’s visit to Cleveland today has been complicated with some mysterious bout of illness. He’s currently at Metro for a check-up, according to 19ActionNews.
39 was in town today for a scheduled appearance at Joseph-Beth Bookstore in Lyndhurst. He’s currently on a book tour for his latest, “White House Diary.”
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum just announced the nomination list of artists eligible for induction in 2011. It's filled with the usual mix of legends (Tom Waits), leftovers (Alice Cooper), and longshots (Donna Summer).
The most surprising thing about this year's list of 15 nominees is that so many of them were eligible before. The Rock Hall's rules state that an artist's first record must be at least 25 years old before they're eligible for induction. Several artists on this year's list date further back than that.
Let's run down the full list and their odds of getting in, shall we?
Last week at a rally for the new health-care reform bill, Ohio Democratic Party Chair Chris Redfern not so delicately referred to opponents of the plan as “fuckers.”
No surprise that Redfern scored with his audience — he was addressing steelworkers in the eastern Ohio border town of Clarington. But he also drew a fresh round of fire from the conveniently puritanical Ohio Republican Party.
“Ohio Democrats have clearly lost it before they’ve lost it,” Republican spokesman John McClelland told a Clarington TV station, demanding an apology from Redfern. “It’s unfortunate that a few bad poll numbers have them lashing out at voters with name-calling and profanity. Let’s show a little class.”
Redfern, whose first words after “hello” are “have you made a donation yet?”, deftly fashioned his blooper into an innovative fund-raising opportunity: He’s posted “Redfern’s Swear Jar” on the Ohio Democrats’ website and invites all of you f**kers to fill it.
