Author Series with Mike Belkin

By the early 1970s, Belkin Productions, the concert promotion company that Jules and Mike Belkin launched from their father's clothing store on West 25th Street, had become synonymous with rock 'n' roll in Cleveland. The company that booked the World Series of Rock concerts at the old Municipal Stadium brought all the biggest rock tours to town. It also managed local acts such as the James Gang and the Michael Stanley Band, enabling them to secure record deals and national tours. The Rolling Stones concert that the brothers promoted at Municipal Stadium in 1978 is reportedly the first concert to gross more than a million dollars. Mike Belkin: Socks, Sports, Rock and Art, a new biography by Belkin and local writer Carlo Wolff, chronicles the company's glory days and documents its history up to 2001, when it sold to SFX for nearly $11 million. Belkin and his son Michael Belkin now work for the concert conglomerate Live Nation. At 7 tonight at the Rock Hall, Belkin will discuss the book. A Q&A session and book signing will follow. Admission is free but reservations are required. Consult the Rock Hall website for more info. (Niesel)

This Tremont coffee joint feels like a blast from the past. With a wood-paneled interior, dim-lighting and wooden furniture, the space gives you the feeling of being in an Enlightenment-era French salon. Along with fine coffees, it offers a large selection of bakery and food options, including chocolate and croissants.
