 Best Bar Trivia Night: Winchester Music Tavern
     12112 Madison Ave., Lakewood  
    
    There’s something so Cleveland about the Winchester. Maybe it’s the way it books the familiar (’70s singer-songwriters), the reliable (veteran rockers), and the safe (acoustic duos). Its music room, hidden behind a tiny bar, is surprisingly large and comfortable. In addition to the live music, the Winchester also holds an awesome live trivia night.

 Larder
    1455 West 29th St., Cleveland 
    
     At its heart, Larder is a Jewish deli, with matzo ball soup, thick pastrami sandwiches, out of this world fried chicken sandwiches and awesome baked goods. But there's so much more going on here than that. Chef-owner Jeremy Umansky utilizes techniques like koji (a Japanese mold) curing, foraging for wild edibles, cold and hot smoking, and fermentation and pickling to produce an ever-shifting roster of seasonal plates.

 Tinman Burger formerly of Ohio City Galley
    13368 Madison Ave., Lakewood
    
     The Ohio City Galley brought thrills and spills in its first year, but man-oh-man, that burger from Tinman. That stall's legendary burger is a ridiculously savory stack of two thin patties, American cheese, special sauce, and sweet and spicy pickles on a brioche bun. It's plush, beefy and incredibly rich. Now the Ohio City Galley is closed and the burger should be available sometime this spring at Eugene Kitchen at Bottlehouse.

BEST HAPPY HOUR EASTSIDE - Paladar Latin Kitchen and Rum Bar: For three hours every day, Paladar delivers $5 mojitos, $5 margaritas, $5 sangria, $2 off specialty cocktails and more. You get the idea? Good. The Latin inspired decor and menu (you'll want to try the avocado deviled eggs or crispy yucca fries, both happy hour specials) offer something a little different to your happy-hour routine. If the post-work timing doesn't fit your schedule, do remember you can hit the reverse happy hour from 9 to 11 p.m. Sundays through Thursdays too.

BEST PUBLIC POOL: Beachwood Family Aquatic Center - 
    The sun’s out, the temps are tipping toward the triple digits, and you can’t stand to be in your apartment one more minute. Where to? A pool, of course. But which one? Make the drive out to Beachwood’s outdoor pool and aquatics center. Trust us, and trust those who have piled the votes for this spot as high as the highest diving board. Residents can snag an individual season pass for just $50; non-residents can dip in for a day for just $10. They got slides, they got areas for the kiddos, they got comfortable lounge chairs, and they got a big, glorious pool in which to escape the rays.
