Re: “Anger and Confusion at City of Cleveland's Communication About and Enforcement of Street Vendor Licenses

Julia, this has nothing to do with food-based businesses. They are subject to an entirely separate set of licenses/permits/approvals.

So unless you'd like to claim that a handmade necklace or screen printed t-shirt is capable of causing food poisoning...

Re: “Cleveland's First Ever Cider Festival Comes to Voinovich Park in September

I hope they actually get some good cidermakers in and not just the horrible mass market crap they currently have listed on their page. Seriously? Redd's Apple Ale? You'd find a better selection at Simone's in Lakewood. Gross.

Re: “New Asian Fusion Restaurant to Open in Lakewood

I was so excited about this opening I went the first day. Bad move. They've somehow managed to out-Sushi Rock Sushi Rock in the overpriced white boy sushi department. Seriously, unless you count BBQ eel sauce, sushi should not be SWEET. I'd rather drive across town and drop the same $100 at Shuhei and get something worth the money.

Re: “Picking up the Torch: The Red Lantern Version 2.0 Will Keep You Coming Back to West Park

"So this place has "food that calls to mind that found in far hipper neighborhoods"...gee, Doug, thanks for the snark. Why didn't you just call the corner "Little Dublin" or "The Green Mile" and be done with it?"

This. Precisely this. I love my neighborhood, and it has much more to offer than chain restaurants, thanks. Cuisine du Cambodge? Der Braumeister? Thai Elephant? Phat Daddy's Kitchen? No, guess it's just too easy to knock on our "uncoolness" because we have a nice stretch of Irish bars along with the other businesses on one of Cleveland's busiest traffic corridors.
