They Draw & Cook

Cleveland’s food scene and art community seem to be growing in unprecedented ways. Fans of art and food are sure to enjoy the Northern Ohio Illustrator Society’s They Draw & Cook: A Creative Playground with Salli S. Swindell. Swindell, who lives in Hudson, co-founded They Draw & Cook, an online illustrated cookbook featuring an archive of more than 5,500 illustrated recipes from around the world, and boasts a Facebook following of more than a quarter-million people. Swindell will discuss the project at the Cleveland Institute of Art tonight at 7. They Draw & Cook has inspired a Food Network sponsored recipe contest and publisher Weldon Owen printed a collection of They Draw & Cook illustrated recipes. Additionally Swindell and her brother and co-founder Nate Padavick have published smaller books by individual artists, who earn 50 percent of sales. Learn more about this project and more at this free, public lecture. (Usmani)

 Lola
2058 East Fourth St., Cleveland

Lola was the restaurant that started East Fourth as a dining destination. Michael Symon’s flagship restaurant shut down in November of 2020 after 24 years in business. Symon famously relocated Lola from Tremont to E. Fourth Street in 2006, doing for that neighborhood what he and his wife Liz did for Tremont, which is to say transform it into the epicenter of Cleveland dining and entertainment.
