Re: “NBA Tells Cleveland: If Q Construction Not Underway by September 15, No All-Star Game in 2020 or 2021

Lets be clear. The NBA did not assure Cleveland the award even if the "shake down" for the Q faade was completed. The projected financial benefit to the city is again another bogus number bantered about by the Greater Cleveland Partnership and Gilbert camp. This is the same group the projected revenue for the casinos and the republican convention, missing there marks.

If this is such a slam dunk deal, Dan Gilbert should foot the bill and if or when the so called revenue marks are hit the city and the county would return to him their respective payments over the same time lines in the current shake down agreement.

Re: “15 of the Best Burger Joints in Cleveland, East to West

I'm giving you the benefit of the doubt that this list was made before Clevelanders "discovered" Five Guys. From your list I'd have to pick Whitey's and B Spot (Strongsville is the better B Spot, IMO. The casino one is not good!) but Whitey's and B Spot have entirely different vibes. So, yeah, I'd rank them both number one. I'm gonna assume the other joints have decent burgers. I know BBB, Heck's and the Hot Dog Diner do, but I still think Five Guys is the go-to in their class of cazh fast food. Yeah, every Five Guys is pretty much the same (my first experience was years and years ago in the DC area when they first started expanding from Balto). But that sameness makes them appealing. You KNOW the service is way friendly, no matter how busy they are! The music selection is great! It's always sparkling clean and bright! And, the food? The food is GREAT for a burger and fries joint! Everything is freshly made to order, there are enough kinds of toppings to satisfy without being over the top. Seriously, some of the combinations at Hot Dog Diner make me cringe. I'm waiting for them to just name one The Garbageburger! Not because the stuff is garbage but because it's overloaded with way too much of the stuff, oozing all over the place. (When I get the kinda dog I grew up with in NE, mustard, relish and onion, I always have to scrape half the stuff off!) Do we really need THAT many options? And the kitschy names? BBB isn't as bad, but simpler is often better, so go with Five Guys. The only thing I wish they'd add to their toppings list is a fried egg. DAMN YOU B Spot! You have spoiled me forever with the Lola sans pickled onions!

Oh, and Swenson's Galley Boy burger is decent (I like the sauce) and they have GREAT O-rings! Try the Xanga (zhanga) for dessert. I get the hot fudge on the side. It's like a cheesecake and a cannoli had a love child. In Mexico. In fact, this is the first time I'd seen a Xanga in anything other than a Mexican restaurant. The upside to Swenson's, in addition to the food, is fast and cheery drive-in service! No ordering through a speaker (I'm talking to you, Sonic), and they have never gotten my order wrong (again, you Sonic). The downside is eating in your car! They do have a coupla picnic tables but since so many people keep their cars running while they eat, I'm not inclined to dine within breathing space.

A lot of cry babies on this page! Taller the better make Cleveland's skyline great. Just FYI he is not ripping the school system off. They get more money if the building gets built and the deal get approved then if nothing gets built at all. Amazing how dumb some people are!

Re: “Cleveland Metroparks Celebrates 100 Years in Spectacular Fashion This Saturday

Would it kill them to book bands at Edgewater Live that appeal to anyone OVER sixty? How many repeat performances of The Breakfast Club or the Spazmatics does one city need, summer after summer? How about some jazz...and a LOT less of that idiot emcee and his frantic shouting...and his stupid f'king hula-hoop contests?

Why doesn't SCENE have emojis? Where is the razzberry icon when you really need it?

Re: “Kyrie Irving Wants to Create His Own Self Sustaining Community Because Life is Expensive

I'm sick of all these overpaid prima donnas and the ridiculous pontifications that spew from their oral cavities every time they open their silly faces. They're paid zillions of smackers, and even with all that moolah, they still feel the need to whine and bitch.

Hit the road, Jack. Take your pissing and moaning to Sonova Beach...and build your new utopian commune in the Everglades, where you can also say hello to your little friends...the snakes and the gators.

Re: “Here is What "nuCLEus" Actually Means

Yeah, we really need all these multi-story, out-of-scale monstrosities dwarfing everything nearby with their oversized ugliness. At the Q, in Playhouse Square, and in Bingetown, next to that new brewery-and-pizza joint.

Low-rise areas don't need these greedheads, who are cramming too many overpriced units (and vehicles) into too small a space, When they are finished ,and jut into the sky, these edifice complexes appear to be giving the finger to everything and everyone else around them.

Which is exactly what these idiot developers are doing..

Re: “Hermes Cleveland is Suing St. Malachi's For Literally the Dumbest Reason

The management of Hermes Cleveland is simply showing publicly what many runners have known for years. Organizations looking to host a road race need to do some homework on the (better) available area timing companies that can assist them from start to finish. And perhaps this tone-deaf arrogance will find groups that do business with Hermes thinking hard about how to approach 2018 and beyond.

I spent decades in the bleachers at Wrigley, and I would gladly tell you what "NBA" stood for out there, but I like my username, and I want to keep it. Use your imagination.

Okay...call it coercion...call it whatchoowanna. It's blackmail, plain and simple.

A fool and his money I guess... For his sake I hope they are at least going to build this community on this side of the Earth-disc.

Re: “Cleveland Metroparks Celebrates 100 Years in Spectacular Fashion This Saturday

Whiskey Island Still and Eatery has announced that they will be closed all day tomorrow (7/22)...think maybe they know something that nobody else seems to have figured out?

Like maybe that the Shoreway will become a parking lot and probably be closed as well? And that both Whiskey Island and Edgewater will eventually become inaccessible? Costs them money to open, and if lemmings and sheeple overrun the area and make it impossible to get out there on a mid-summer Saturday, they lose. Makes total sense to close up instead.

Hope they are giving their staff a paid day off. It's not their fault the Metroparks picked a place with one entrance and exit to throw a huge birthday party..

Re: “Scene's Ale Fest Rescheduled to Saturday, August 5

Ridiculous. What kind of amateur organization wasn't aware there was a schedule clash more than a week in advance. Is this Cleveland, or Podunk Ohio?
