For the past several years, Easter Monday in Cleveland has come to mean Dyngus Day, a Polish celebration also known as lany poniedziałek.
This year, Tremont will offer even more ethnic food specials to celebrate the event, which takes place on Monday, March 28.
“Dyngus Day taps into this neighborhood’s Eastern European immigrant roots and the venues here are proudly paying homage to that history with authentic and inspired culinary offerings that range from pork cutlets smothered in wild mushroom sauce at the South Side to kielbaski and kraut sandwiches at Polish Legion of American Vets Post 58,” says Bonnie Flinner in a press release. Flinner will serve homemade dishes like cabbage rolls, ethnic platters and kielbaski corn dogs at her Prosperity Social Club.
Other Dyngus Day specials include sauteed pierogi from Sokolowski’s University Inn and Bigos (a Polish hunter’s stew) at Tremont Tap House. The easy listening trio Malphonia and legendary accordionist Stan Mejac will perform at Prosperity, the five-piece polka ensemble Visinata and DJ Kishka will perform at South Side and the Jimmy Daye 7 Ethnic Jazz Ensemble will perform at Sokolowski's.
Also, this year, Tremont will offer its own free in-neighborhood shuttle. The Cleveland Brew Bus will run continuously between 1 and 8 p.m., stopping at Tremont Tap House, Prosperity Social Club, Roosevelt Veterans Post 58, the South Side and Sokolowski's University Inn.
Maps and additional information listing participating Tremont venues will be available prior to and on Dyngus Day. Revelers can pick up a guide at any participating Tremont venue.
