    I miss all the good shows in Cleveland. It sucks working every Friday and Saturday night.

    Although Tyler the Creator is on a Sunday and I got a ticket to that.

    Also I'm from the east side, willioughby area. It's not really Cleveland but hopefully I'll be moving next summer. Looking at places in either Lakewood or Ohio city

    Anywhere on E. 4th, especially if you want to grab drinks at several different bars, All within walking distance. Much more laid back area than W. 6th or Ohio City (W. 25th)

    Also, there’s a comedy club (Hilarities) that has some big names coming in and a bowling alley/arcade (Corner Alley) on E. 4th

    Also agree with Pier W, but nothing else really near it.

    Anyone ever been to Gervasi Vineyard in Canton? My wife and I are staying overnight at one of the Villas there next weekend. We have reservations for The Bistro, but other than that, I'm not sure what all there is to do around there.

    Not a big fan of this line-up, but still pretty cool we're getting a festival.

    I wasn't expecting much so that's not too bad for me. New Order, SZA, Avetts and Earl should all be great. And I'm always down to see Seafair and the Modern Electric play. That + the novelty of having it where it is will probably be enough for me to drop the benji on it

    New Order, SZA, K.Flay, and Earl are the only ones I'm interested in, but will definitely have to go since the 25th is my birthday.

    Also, I'm living in Warren now so I'm closer to CLE now.

    Dang that sucks. That spot was the best for pre grog shop show drinks.

    I'm way late here, but I actually took my lady there for her birthday last year. It was really nice. The grounds are great for a post-dinner walk and there are bocce courts out back.

    I prefer a stop at Tommy's for milkshakes pre-show.

    My wife and I stayed overnight back in March. It was nice, but definitely somewhere you'd want to go when it's warm. It was still pretty cold when we went, so most of the outdoor stuff was closed. We ate at the restaurant which was pretty good but then there wasn't much to do afterward so we actually uber'd out of there to go to the new Fat Heads Brewery in Canton (probably the only couple to go to a winery and uber out of there to go to a brewery, haha) and that was great.

    Speaking of the Grog Shop, I went 'out' in Coventry for the first time in probably six or seven years on Saturday and it's not much like I remember. We had dinner at Bodega...it was OK at best. I was really excited to go there, ordered the filet and it was doused in sauce, even the potatoes too. A big no-no for me.

    B-Side Lounge was rented out so we couldn't go in there. The Whiskey Bar was...super weird. I get that it's a 'whiskey' bar but they literally only had one beer available to order (Heineken) and the place was the size of a hallway. The size didn't bother me at all, but you'd think they'd have a few more beers to offer. Also, they charged my sister $2 for water. And all they did was take out a non-refrigerated glass container of water and pour it into a cup with no ice.

    Paninis is still there, but I can go to a Paninis anywhere so purposely avoided it (until after The Grog Shop). Also hit up City East Hookah Bar (which used to be called The Loft) and that was really the only place I enjoyed. A lot of beer choices, both on draft and in bottle. I was talking to the bartender there who had worked there for 10+ years and he said Coventry has really changed and a lot of places are leaving because leases/rent are skyrocketing and the surrounding neighborhoods are getting worse so they're packing up shop.

    Bums me out because I spent a lot of time there in my late teens, early 20s. I still go to The Grog Shop maybe once a year, but haven't really explored Coventry in probably six or seven years before this past Saturday.

    Fat Heads is a must. Their new Tap House in Middleburg Heights is massive.

    Coventry will always be rad as long as Grog, Record Revolution and Tommy's are still there

    "Mongo's" is good eats. I've never finished a third bowl. Someday...

    I've been to the beginning of emo night at The Foundry once. Took place after a Bogues / Hot Mulligan show a few years ago. I love some of the people involved (Tucker, Andrew Wells), but haven't gone a full night. I don't think I have the energy any more for that sort of high-volume nostalgia.
