Good afternoon, Cleveland. Here's some stuff to read while you root for Butler and San Diego State tonight. Oh, that's just us? Nevermind.

— Wolfgang Puck will be opening a 'Wolfgang Puck Express' in University Hospital's new Seidman Cancer Center. Nothing cheers up dying people like an $18 pizza. (

— Smithsonian Mag has a nice article proclaiming that, once again, Cleveland's showing signs of revival. Written by a Clevelander, the piece discovers that Cleveland boasts, A) Cheap food, B) Nice people, and C) Cheap food served by nice people. (Smithsonian Mag)

— Cause a ruckus and have the Cleveland SWAT team show up at your house? That'll be $11,000, thank you. (WOIO)

— A new poll shows 30% of Republicans don't know enough about Sherrod Brown to have an opinion of the job he's done in the last four years. 27% of Scene staffers are confused by that fact. (

Hold Steady's in town next Saturday, but you knew that already.
