Visitors, journalists, and a whole bunch of GOPers are already descending upon Cleveland in anticipation of the first national debate slated to take place live tomorrow evening from 9 - 11 p.m. at Quicken Loans Arena.

Between the policy balking and insult hurling that's likely to ring out both within the Q and on city streets, we reckon a couple of pressing queries will emerge: Where should we eat? Where should we drink?

Luckily, Scene's hungry and humble dining editor Doug Trattner has compiled some helpful tips over the last few months that will surely satiate out-of-towners and locals alike. Enjoy.
