Will you have a car? Does it matter if you're 10-15 minutes away?
You could prob pick up a nice room for $30 on PL.

 dont know what You paid but its the Old Shearton Hotel not a bad place, dont know what you got it for.

 The Bad thing is its on the I-77 which is on the West side not far from CLE (the airport)

 The Good thing its all Interstae Hway from the Hotel over to the East side where Beachwood is located.

I stayed there for a night a few yrs ago when I was saying kaddish and simply drove over to the Beachwood area for the minyan, just www.mapquest.com it I think it was 20mins max

 I hope you did your homework on www.betterbidding.com & www.biddingfortravel.com before you actually did any bidding thats besides looking at say orbitz,travelocity, expedia to get a ringling of what Rates were going for and of cause the differnt Hotel sites themselves with AAA etc to see what they were offering as there lowest Rates

 Thats besides understanding how to get free rebids, its an art and does take some time to learn, but well worth when you end up $aving the $$$

 Heres a pic and how it looks like the old Sheraton: http://travel.yahoo.com/p-hotel-375758-skyline_hotel_and_conference_center-i

 in case you read the reviews note the Dates the Hotel used to be a 4 Points then became a Clarion then Sheraton and now Skyline (dont know what it was before the 4P)

 I'll leave it to Dan to fill you in on the Shuls or simply go to www.godaven.com and Clevland and most are on the same street , the places to eat are a 2 min drive from that block of Shuls

 Not that Im aware of only I cant figure out if you were looking for Beachwood how you won a Hotel on the other side of Clev

 Look at it this way eg you won a Hotel by LGA in Queens when you needed to be in Boro Park and BP is where the religious area is (which of cause isnt the case in NY but is in CLE) or you needed to be on 41st St in Miami Beach and you won a Hotel in Aventura or 203 St. Youre lucky in that as I posted its all hway if I remember correctly you will get on the I-77 for a few mins then onto the I-480 East to the I-271 North and off at the Beachwood exit its a funny exit as you need to make an upside U in order to cross over to the other side of the Hway. But as I said its maybe 20 mins max not so bad.  

 The other week I had a wedding in Toronto, flew into BUF and slept after the wedding in Niagara Falls which is 1  1/2 hrs from Toronto

You're in Independence, which is about halfway between the airport and Beachwood.  It's not quite the west side of Cleveland.
There are a dozen hotels there and it's perfectly safe and quiet.  I've been to the Hyatt Place in Independence dozens of times.

It's a 15-20 minute drive to the Jewish attractions.

How much did you get it for? What star level did you pick?

 Independence is the name of the City , I guess just as Beachwood isnt exactly Clevland either

 I tried to let CD know that were going to be West of Beachwood by a bit. Ive yet to have  afriend that lives in the borders of Beachwood ever tell me they live in Beachwood and not Clevland. They always tell people they live in Clevland

 So to me and it may be Wrong, I see Beachwood as the East Side of CLE and Independnce as the West Side, when in fact neither are in the City of Clevland, they are  their own Citys

I doubt there are any Jews who actually live in the city of Cleveland.  Everyone lives in the suburbs, and each suburb is its own city with its own mayor, police force, school system, etc.


There is a strong East side/West side "rift" between residents.   It's got nothing to do with being actually in the city.  It has to do with being east or west of the Cuyahoga river, which roughly follows I-71. It's joked that East siders never venture to the west side except to go to the airport.  I'm just saying the Independence isn't that far away.  It's actually due south of Cleveland right off I-71 so it's more of a border city.

Just saying "West of Beachwood" would also include Cleveland Heights, which is decidedly on the east side, and Cleveland itself which is split by the Cuyahoga...

 Dan a few posts up I posted I-77 I see from this post its the I-71 can you change that as "Modify" is no longer an option for me on that post

 I usually stay down in CF by the Shearton Suites, nice place and I get great rates but when I was saying kaddish I wanted to be closerr to the Area and Route 8 can be a traffic nightmare during rush hours. when I was staying with HH the Hampton Inn in WestLake usually had a $49 coupon in roomsaver.com so even thou it was a very plain HI w/o anything it more then served the purpose

CLE is where I bed down for the night when driving to Detroit, it gets most of the driving out of the way so that Fri morn Im not pressured due to Shabbos. thats why I know the little I do about CLE. I do the trip sometimes 2 or 3 times a yr I-80 to _76 to route 8 or a exit or 2 before if heading to Beachwwod then over to the 90 to Route2 to TOL no Turnpikes for me

To go from NYC to Beachwood the fastest routing would be I-80 to I-480 to I-271.  Tolls would only be on a tiny segment of I-80 and are not more than $1 if you pay with EZ-Pass.

Also Route 8 has undergone a major facelift into a highway without lights and is almost done! The facelift has knocked 10 minutes off the trip between Cleveland and Akron.

Just to note, Cleveland Heights is about 8-10 minutes further from Independence than Beachwood is.

But it's worth it just to pick up a Cinnamon Donut from Unger's in Cleveland Heights.

I-71N to I-480W to I-271N local lanes, take exit 32, make a right to go west on Cedar road.  Make a right on Taylor road and the CH jewish life (Kineret Pizza, Ungers grocery and bakery, shuls etc.) is pretty much all on Taylor.
Figure on 25-30 mins to CH.

For the Beachwood institutions just go the same way but from Cedar make a left on Green road (about 2.5 miles before Taylor)

For the Beachwood institutions just go the same way but from Cedar make a left on Green road (about 2.5 miles before Taylor)

 that Right off of Exit 32 is what I called the upside down U a few posts ago CD you have to be careful when exiting as there I believe 3 different roads you can go down and its awkward exiting ahighway and in order to cross over it go backwards (although its not really that)

 I Blew it the 1st time as I was in the Left lane too late cause you see the overpass ahead of you and figure the directions are wrong. Nope I was! That overpass was adiffernt road and Cedar is behind you as you go under it before exiting

 Yet to go from Beachwood to the I-90 towards TOL MQ had me driving local streets and thru Shaker Heights(nice neighborhood). the next time I simply went with the hways  abit longer but alot easier less turns and having to read all the street signs

 well if that doesnt work theres the Football Hall of Fame a few miles down the I-71S in Caton, other then those 2 there are some Estates in the Akron area, dont know if there are open this time of yr, check the Where mag or the flyers that most Hotels have. Remember CLE gets alot of Lake affect so it can and will be windy, or cold, or snowing, which leaves out most outdoor activities except for ice skating

Any suggestions what to do and were to eat?

I looked online and all I see is the rock and roll hall of fame!
-Football HOF if you're a sports fan.
-The Cavs are playing the Nets on the 15th.  If you go be sure to catch the pre-game pyrotechnics show!  Tons of fun and excitement at Cavs home games and a great chance to see Shaq and Lebron!
-Free Outdoor Ice Skating.

What other kind of stuff do you usually do?  There's plenty of comedy shows and a $1 movie theater and tons of other stuff.  Plenty of incredible shopping nearby.

Eateries:
The Bagel Shoppe makes excellent bagels, good enough to rival any NY place.  The garlic bagels are yum!  Bakery stuff is usually pretty good too. They close at 2pm.

Pizza: Kinneret is usually very good, Issi's is usually not.

Meat: Contempo Cuisine is the fanciest restaurant and is great.  Excellent Steaks ($30), very good soups ($5), appetizers (10) , and desserts ($6).  Try the whiskey peppercorn and ask them to add sauteed mushrooms and onions on top.  The entrees also comes with a salad, garlic mashed potatoes, and some grilled veggies included in the price.

Subway is good and cheap, Jerusalem Grill is OK for Israeli food.

Bakeries: Ungers has some great stuff like donuts and pecan rolls. Lax And Mandel is gross.

Chocolate Emporium has cholov yisroel ice cream and parve homemade chocolate goodies.

If you dont keep cholov yisroel they say not to miss the kosher Amy Joy Donuts and Cold Stone Creamery.

You can try priceline/hotwire in Beachwood, lots of hotels but not SPG/Hyatt unfortunately.  There aren't any hotels within walking distance of YI, they're all at least a few miles away.

The closest SPG is the category 2 property at the airport some 25 minutes away and the closest Hyatt Place is in Independence about 15 minutes away where they know me all too well.

 Id rather stay at that Hampton get 1 of 4 towards a free Hilton stay especially at $71 then stay at the SS and not get any credit.

Now if there wasnt any decent promos going on and I couldnt score an ElCheapo Rate be it at MR or HH then Id consider it, but there are a few Fairfields in the area with the Room saver coupon for $69, so Id do taht before the SS with no credit to be had. Just my opin

Jerusalem Grill apparently just started making good Chinese food. I'll try it out for myself sometime soon and report back.

 if its anything like their other food SAVE your $$$, I had already ordered before the next person did.They ordered shwarma and the girl opens the fridge took out a plastic bucket and threw some on the grll to heat up. Thats when I knew I was in TROUBLE.Never saw that anywhere else ever and unfortuantely my food was already cooking otherwise I most certainly would have CXed it!

Id rather stay at that Hampton get 1 of 4 towards a free Hilton stay especially at $71 then stay at the SS and not get any credit.

I know you're not a Hyatt fan, but surely you'd be better off spending the ~$71 at the nicer (IMO) Hyatt Place in Cleveland/Independence and get a few thousand AA miles as well as 1 of 2 stays towards a free Hyatt night worldwide!

Yup, their Shwarma is a big-time no-no, but their Shnitzel with french fries in a homemade Pita is not bad.

its not that Im not a Hyatt fan, I am for those that it works for

 take my Aug trip to SYD I arrive Fri @ 6;30am so I booked a HInn in town for $105 since I just want a place to restup and shower before heading to a friends for Shabbos. MS Ill stay near SYD since I have a 9am flight to CNS.Back Weds night from CNS @ 8pm = no real time to enjoy the Park H where I slept a night last yr with a friend B4 heading early to The Blue Mts, as I have a Weds 1pm flight out

 even the 4P with C&P works out better. But both the PH and 4P are a schelp from the train

 theres just not enough places Id want to use them at. Then I dont think at this time of the yr it pays to get comped to their Diamond level, so till at least 7/1 no Hyatts for this guy

Is it not worth making 5 stays, costing maybe $400, to get some 30,000 AA miles?
The 2.5 free nights are just icing on that.

There's a new PH in Carlsbad, CA that just took over the Four Seasons that may be worth checking out for free on your next west coast MR...

I know Hyatt's can be scarce in places, but there's simply no program as lucrative as Gold Passport for actual hotel stays.  And their bottom-tier Hyatt Places are really quite nice for their category.  Very large rooms with 42" flat screens, pullout couch, and a nice free breakfast with Starbucks teas and coffee...

 in a few ways no. Im trying not to stay at a Hampton since a FS HH is worth 500 miles or 750 miles if put into US and Im using that to get to 120k with US, also Hyatt will be program #4 and theres only so many that I can keep top level with and *W is 1 and with 1m+ pts with HH it pays to keep Diamond with them till those pts are used up. Then theres 1m+ pts with Marriott as well so ther it pays to kep at least gold till those are used up thats 50 - 15 nights ayr = 35. Just no way to get Hyatt done as well

Well I went to Jerusalem Grill tonight and am happy to report that they have a new Chinese Chef who makes a wicked Sesame Chicken!
2 thumbs up!

The Sweet and Sour Chicken was pretty good too.

The Chinese menu is pretty small, the only other entrees were Moo Goo Gai Pan, Pepper Steak, and Vegetable Stir-Fry.

The rest of the menu is all pretty lousy, as is the service.  Definitely a "to-go" type of place when you need a Chinese-fix.

Also next door, Sababa has a brand new menu with Sushi that I have yet to try since getting really bad food a couple months ago.

 the only decent dog mass sold is Meal Marts 6 to the pkg. But Nothin beats Rumanian from Chicago!

 A&H used to be decnt but is garabge today. theres a brand called Lower East Side that are very good just impossible to find them they were made by 999 which now goes by a different name and is garbage

 no good deli any more :-(((

 maybe when I drive back next Mon or tues I will get into town early enough to grab a bite but rates are up there next week so Id probably either drive thru or stay in Avon which means no fod stop off

 but with some usable codes I can get a few Marriott props for apx $70+. MR has stay 3 get 1 free up to a cat4 so if I end up in St pete theres 2 over there no SPG or HH a Ren for 30k in pts

 I dont go somewhere in order to stay at a particular Hotel. I will fly somewhere either cause I want to see that city or Country or due to the EQMs being very cheap

Now if a Hotel is a resort and I will be staying on property then I could see going to a Hotel for the Hotel itself. So even with the Hyatts on Maui & Kauai if all I'll end up doing is sleeping there then I dont need to stay there, if I plan on hanging at the Hotel and take in what it has to offer then i would want a place like the top Hyatts.


 This is why The park a 3* works for Me in Yeru, I need a place to shower,sleep and leave my stuff. Bingo Yet people dont understand why Im not staying at The DC or Mamilla or KD or Plaza I tell them why should I pay $500 when I can pay $90 , now if they were say $125 that would be something else

they are in the central time zone so you gain an hour and should be there before shabbos.

Just went to a new pizza shop today which inspired me to update this post.

City guide:
BE=Beachwood
UH=University Heights
SE=South Euclid
CH=Cleveland Heights
CL=Cleveland

Hours listed are for weekdays.  Weekend hours will vary.

-The Bagel Shoppe (UH, 4/5 DD stars) closes at 2pm.
Don't miss the excellent Jalapano or Garlic Bagels ($0.95)  Excellent Challah.

-Kinneret Pizza (CH, 4/5 DD stars) closes at 7pm.
Delicious plain pizza ($2.25/slice, $16.50/pie)  Avoid the toppings.  Very good homemade onion rings ($2.75) and cauliflower ($3.25).  Good spicy fries ($1.90) and Eggplant Parmesan ($6.50).  Soft serve Ice Cream with 8 flavor choices ($2.25).  There is a salad bar and a lot of other choices on the menu.

-Issi's Pizza (SE, 1.5/5 DD stars) closes at 8pm.
The pizza ($16/pie) is made in a conveyor belt oven that is just not to most people's liking.

-Top It Off Pizza (UH, 3.5/5 DD stars) closes at 8pm.
This place just opened up this week.  They only offer pick-up at the current time.  No eating place or delivery.
Their Pizza comes in a 8" personal pie size ($5) or 16" family pie ($14).  Pizza seems to be very good and they have tons of great topping options that are affordable as well!
Not much else in the way of side dishes and the fries seemed very overpriced.

-Contempo Cuisine Steakhouse (UH, 4/5 DD stars) has last seating at 8pm.
Upscale steakhouse.  Don't miss the great soups ($5) and definitely don't miss the Whiskey Peppercorn steak or the Monte Carlo Steak ($34, including salad, mashed potatoes, and vegetables)

-Jerusalem Grill (SE, Chinese Menu 4/5 DD stars, Regular Menu 2/5 DD stars), closes at 9pm.
Sweet and Sour, Sesame, and Lemon chicken ($14) are all excellent.  Not much else on the menu is worth trying besides perhaps for the shnitzel.

Sababa (SE, 1.5/5 DD stars), closes at 9pm
Went here the week they opened earlier this year and had the worst burger ($8) and service ever.  Wouldn't go back.

Subway (BE, 3/5 DD stars) close at 9pm
Typical Subway with parve cheese available.
I'm partial to the pepper steak ($13) or meatballs ($9) on the Italian herb bread with sweet onion sauce.  Be brave and try it with the cheese!

-The glatt kosher hot dog stand ($5) at Progressive Field is open during Indians games (CL, 7pm-10pm weeknights).

-Lax & Mandel Bakery (SE, 0 Stars) closes at 7pm.
In all fairness they are under new ownership, but this place was so bad under the previous owners that I haven't been able to bring myself to go back in.

-Ungers Bakery & Kosher Market (CH, Donuts: 4.5/5 DD stars, other bakery goods: 2/5 DD stars) closes at 8pm, but often may let you in later as they have bakers there all night long.
My favorite is the yummyy cinnamon donut, but others will heatedly tell you that their preference is the Custard, Miami, Glaze, or Maple as well!

-Tibor's (BE) has a deli with lots of prepared food and good spicy homemade salami.  They also carry bakery goods from Ungers and from Word of Mouth which are excellent. They close at 7pm.

-Shimon's Deli (CH) also carries some prepared foods and closes at 6pm.

Later than that, there's also Chocolate Emporium & Ice Cream Parlor (BE, Cholov Yisroel and Cholov Stam available.  Don't miss their chocolate creations like the dark chocolate cappuccino truffle or raspberry truffle or their chocolate popcorn, etc, etc.), Amy Joy Donuts (SE, Cholov Stam), Coldstone Creamery (UH, Cholov Stam), and Mitchell's Ice Cream (BE, Cholov Stam)

For cleveland heights I would think that khal yereim has latest minyan, but not sure on times.

Does not really matter where I'm driving thru on my way east.
I don't need to eat breakfast there, it is really two questions. Where can I find a Minyan, I am now thinking closer to 8. And, where can I buy something for breakfast.
Title: Re: Shachris Minyan in Cleveland Hights.
Post by: Dan on January 09, 2011, 02:38:18 AM
Breakfast:
-Pick up a Jalapeno or a Garlic Bagel from The Bagel Shoppe in University Heights.  They are both excellent.  There is place to sit down or you can get stuff to go.  Plain bagels are roughly .95 each, 6 for $5.49, or a dozen for $10.
-Pick up a Cinnamon or Custard (or any other flavor) donut from Ungers in Cleveland Heights.  They're .95-$1.25 each and shouldn't be missed IMO.

If you're around a little later there's a new take-out only pizza place called "Top It Off Pizza" which is very good as well.

I just know the Chabad scene, of which there is an 8am in Cleveland Heights and a 7 and 8am in Beachwood.

How's the snow back home?

I went to Khal Yereim as I saw on GOdaven that they had a 8:15 minyan, arrived on the dot, but it seems like its more of an 8:30 minyan (borchu is at 8:45). Unger's is one short block away I bought one blueberry (and cinnamon), one apple (and cinnamon), one pecan cinnamon glazed danish and a chocolate danish all were very good (you'll ave to trust my wife on the last two) althiugh I liked the blueberry more than the apple as I've tasted better apple fillings.

Thank you all for reffering me to this thread. Here's a few remaining Ctown specific questions and then I'll look more into Chicago before asking about there:

Does anyone know where I can get discount to attractions such as the Rock and Roll HOF?

Did anyone go to Canton from Clevland- wondering how cool it is for a medium sized football fan and how long is drive?

Dan, are those doughnut and ice cream places still open (i couldnt get on amy joy website) and how late....we're thinking of going to this waterpark that closes at 8 and I think its an hour out of clevland?

thank you
Title: Re: Cleveland Master Thread
Post by: Dan on August 04, 2011, 03:54:07 PM
Entertainment probably has discounts for the Rock HOF and NFL HOF.
Rock hall is 30 minutes west of Beachwood, the NFL HOF is about 50 minutes south of Beachwood
If you're a fan or Rock or Football I'm sure you'll love 'em.  Otherwise probably not.

The Ice cream and doughnut places are all open.  Plus there are a couple chalav stam yogurt places (Yogurt Vi and Menchies) that have opened as well to much acclaim.  Never had the Amy Joy donuts, but Ungers Cinnamon and Custard donuts are both very good.

I know Geauga Lake has a nice water park where Sea World used to be that's 25 minutes east of Beachwood.  In Sandusky (~80 minutes west of Beachwood) is Cedar Point, with 17 amazing coasters that attracts people from around the world.  There's also Kalahari and Soak City water parks in Sandusky.

Thanx Dan,

So our plan right now is to leave NY late Sat night and arrive in Ctown in morning hit rock hall then indians game and grab an affordable kosher hot dog and then hit that waterpark in lake g.  If we get tired and wanna skip rock hall what do you think about just chilling in a park not far from stadium - is there any nice public places or waterside places to just chill for a few hours with a blanket?

Edgewater Park is about 3 miles from the Jake/Prog and has a nice beach and park.

I'm actually in Cleveland right now, and came across this post by doing a search on the entire forum for the word "Menchies". Can you (or anyone else here) offer any more details about their kashrus status? I.e. Are they a kosher establishment, or a non-kosher establishment that sells prepackaged kosher items, or what? Is there any chalav yisroel to speak of?

From what I understand it is not a kosher establishment but all of their products are made under kosher chalav stam supervision.
I've never walked into the place so I would highly recommend asking your LOR or Cleveland Kosher for more info.

It's hard to move into the lower bowl until later in the game.  You can buy $8 upper box seats though behind home plate which are the top 6 rows and move down to a much closer row though easily.

The hot dog stand is in the lower bowl next to Subway and is accessible by anyone.

St. Louis....sounds intriguing...I'll look into it. With regard to Cleveland, I'll admit I haven't done all there is to do certainly in regard to the food department...hey, if two relaxing days can be had there - suggest some options and I'll be there!

Thanks!

PS If you're desperate, I can bring you some Salmon Pasta w/ Fries from Fish Grill while I'm at. :)
Hmm...might go for some Avocado egg rolls from LG as well in that case :D

Cleveland food highlights:
-Steak Au Poivre from Contempo Cuisine ($34) along with their Soup du jour ($5)
-The Bagel Shoope makes top-notch bagels (.95 or 12/$10).  Garlic and Jalapeno are both excellent.  Cookies (.95) are also good.  Eli is quite the fan so bring some his way. :)
-Sweet & Sour Chicken or Sesame Chicken ($14) with Fried Rice ($1) from Jerusalem Grill.
-An excellent pie of plain Pizza can be had at Kinneret ($16.50) along with authentic Sushi ($6-$8) on select nights of the week.  Spicy Fries ($1.95), homemade onion rings ($2.75), fried cauliflower ($3.25) and the eggplant parm ($6.50) are good choices as well.
-Top It Off specializes in pizza ($14) with a great variety of toppings ($1 each or 3 for $2.50).  Did you know corn, felafel, and onions go together pretty well on a pie of pizza?  They also specialize in incompetence at times so check your bill and your order before you leave.  Take out only.
-Beef or Turkey Shwarma in a laffa from Sababa ($9) along with some Tropical Sushi ($6.50, Mango, Kiwi, Avocado) if you're feeling like Israel, Japan, and Hawaii.  Decent homemade onion rings ($5) too.
-If Chef Dave at Young Israel is doing one of his buffet meals (1-2 times per month) then you're in for a real treat.
-Issi's Pizza can be good at rare times but is usually nothing to write home about.
-Subway is subway.  Meatball Marinara on Italian Herb with Mozzerella parve cheese (I was scared at first too, but it's good!) and sweet onion sauce is my usual but I'll go for Pepper Steak if they're out.  On select days it's $5.99 for a 6" meal deal, on others it's $8 for a 12" meal deal, on others $8.50 for just the 12" sub and $2 extra for the soda+2 cookies meal deal.
-There's a kosher hot dog/sausage stand at Indians games ($5)
-Chocolate Emporium has CY and non-CY chocolates and Ice Cream.  AFAIK, Cold Stone Creamery, Menchies Yogurt, and Yogurt Vi are kosher, non CY.
-Ungers bakery has great parve donuts.  Cinnamon (.95) and Custard ($1.35) are great.  Amy Joy has non-CY donuts.
-Abba's, Empire, Ruchama's, and Yacov's are all long gone unfortunately.

I'll make a post on some stuff to do soon, but when is this trip for?

Title: Re: Cleveland Master Thread
Post by: Dan on August 30, 2011, 01:43:39 AM
No prob!
As for things to do, tripadvisor has a list of 70 items here: http://www.tripadvisor.com/Attractions-g50207-Activities-Cleveland_Ohio.html

Everything in Cleveland is divided by the Cuyahoga River, so if you see something being described as being on the East Side or West Side, it's referring to the River (yes, that did catch on fire in the 60s) that cuts through downtown.  It's illegal for East siders to go to the west side except to go to the airport, or at least it seems that's the case as east siders seem to stay east and the west siders stay west unless they venture to Nordstrom/Nordstrom Rack in Beachwood Place/Legacy Village.

Everything jewish/kosher is on the east side and the furthest 2 kosher restaurants from each other would be Kinneret and Subway in the JCC, about a 4 mile/12 minute drive.  Everything else is in between those 2 places.

-Cedar Point in Sandusky is on the way from Chicago and is an hour west of Cleveland, home to the most roller coasters in the world.  3 of the coasters usually place in the top 10 in the world.  There's also a massive indoor waterpark, an outdoor waterpark, an animal safari, and ferrys to the Lake Erie islands/put-in-bay in Sandusky.
-The "Emerald Necklace" is a chain of green Metroparks with great hiking that surrounds Cleveland.  October should be perfect to view the fall foliage.  If this is your thing also don't miss the Cuyahoga Valley National Park.
-Chagrin Falls is a quaint village on the east side to walk around and you to can be chagrined by the falls.
-The Football HOF is in Canton, about an hour south of Cleveland.
-The Rock and Roll HOF is in downtown Cleveland on the lake next to the Great Lakes Science Center and Omnimax.
-The Indians, Cavs, and Browns provide major league sports entertainment in downtown Cleveland along with the minor league hockey Lake Erie Monsters.  Browns games are great with some of the best/craziest fans in the NFL.
-The Great Lakes Brewing Company has a great brewpub in Ohio City on the west side of downtown with tons of history (bullet holes still in the walls from Elliot Ness, who brought down Al Capone among other mobsters).  There are also tours and tastings of their great beers.  Right nearby is the famous West Side Market where on certain days of the week local farmers sell their great produce at low prices.
-October is too late for summer activities, but for now beaches like Edgewater Park in downtown, and Mentor Headlands Beach State Park are great.
-Cleveland Metroparks Zoo and Rainforest is good for kids.
-Lots of quality museums (Art, Childrens, Natural History, Science, Auto-Aviation if vintage cars are your thing, etc) and even the Maltz museum of jewish heritage.
-Great shopping malls include the outdoor Crocker Park on the west side and the outdoor Legacy Village and indoor Beachwood Place on the east side.

There are no hotels within walking distance of the jewish community.  The only SPG is the Sheraton on the west side by the airport (30 minutes drive) although they are building an aloft in the downtown flats area nearby the casino being built right now.  There is also a  highly regarded Sheraton Suites by Cuyahoga Falls.
-There is a nice Hyatt Regency downtown (25 minutes drive) in a unique vintage arcade building and a Hyatt Place about 20 minutes away.

There is a subway/light rail connecting the airport with downtown, University Circle where the Case campus and many museums are, and the jewish community area, but renting a car is pretty much required.

The food is good, but it's take-out only.  It's also the only place in town to get yummy pride of the farm ice cream ($8/64 oz.) instead of the klein's mediocrity ($9.69/56 oz.) that ungers peddles.
-Tibor's also has an extensive and highly regarded take-out selection and they sell some locally made gourmet baked goods and popcorn.  You can also pick up a pack of Jerusalem's Grill very good Pita (Forgot to write about that earlier!) at Tibor's.
-Boris' and Unger's also have take-out delis that I haven't tried.
You can pick up shabbos food at any of those places or order from Chef Dave's at Young Israel, from Green road catering, or from Contempo.  You can also pick up prepared food from Contempo at Heinen's Grocery.
-Skip right on by Lax & Mandel bakery.  Nothing worthwhile there although if you are desperate the stuff that Heinen's resells from Lax & Mandel seems to be fresher than directly from them.

Good riddance as far as I'm concerned...also known as don't mess over your "best customer" time and time again and expect to survive.

Also worth noting that Chef Dave is having one of his specialty buffets this sunday. (http://www.chefdavescatering.biz/091811Dinner.pdf)  His last one that I went to was worth every penny.  His price includes tax and there's no need to tip.  The ambiance is probably as good as it gets in CLE.

Post by: Dan on January 17, 2012, 12:18:46 PM
Doesn't exist.

-Contempo Cuisine makes great steaks, but the ambiance is just OK, maybe 3/5.
-Subway is Subway.  The original and best of the kosher joints, but nothing fancy.
-Jerusalem Grill makes pretty good chinese and shnitzel, but ambiance is 2/5.
-Sababa makes merely mediocre food but may have the best ambiance at 3.5/5.
-And then there's the 2 pizza shops (Kinneret and Issi's) which are good but nothing fancy.
-The Bagel Shoppe makes top notch bagels, but the ambiance is not good.

Probably.  But don't expect anything above passable in the ambiance department.
Also they are only open for dinner and are closed on Mondays.

i thought subway isnt kosher anymore, havent been there in a while but thats what i heard recently. (or maybe owners change)

btw do u remember ruchamas? was that any good?
and what did u rate yakkovs pizza out of all 3?

Huh? Subway is still kosher.  You must be thinking about the one in Baltimore.

Abba's was awesome.  A real shame that they knocked down that whole shopping mall together with Yacov's.  Those were my 2 favorite restaurants in town.

There was a Ruchama's in the JCC and Ruchama's Singapore on Warrensville.  They weren't bad.

White refined flour and most store-bought pasta
The bran and germ that are removed from such items are amazingly good sources of minerals and vitamins. They lack the essential nutrients, even after enrichment. Better to stick with whole grain products because white refined flour and store-bought pasta are linked to an increase in heart disease.

ur right, to a degree though. because once u get stuck in the whole "healthy" and WW stuff, in the beginning its not tasty but u get so adjusted to it that sometimes you cant eat otherwise!
as of now - Ezekiel (http://www.foodforlife.com/product-catalog/ezekiel-49/breads/120C6-organic-sprouted-whole-grain-flourless-bread) is the only bread i eat on daily basis, unless theres is none or i want pita than ill stick with WW

They have lots of varieties of breads under the Trader Joe's brand, just walk into a store.  Their Challah is pretty good as well.

"Trader Joe's label on breads bearing the "cRc," Bagels, Challah, Honey Nut Bread and French Boule are all Pas Yisroel.  The Gluten-Free breads and rolls are not considered Pas. "

pretty much fun-n-stuff is great! For all ages. They have arcades, later tag, mini golf, rock climbing, roller skating, mini gokarts for the little ones, regular go karts, bumper boats, batting cages, and of course crappy prizes :) they also have a lunch area you can use. How old are the kids will everyone be together at all times? Boating is an idea, animal safari, loads of great hikes, whirly ball would be a special treat for older kids  If you get more specific I can help you out more...

Well, -1 and +1  ???

-1 because they weren't so great to begin with. I personally never even went there because my wife (a native Clevelander) was about as interested in the place as people are in reading the EULA of a new software program.

+1 because after all is said and done, any blow to the already-small CLE kosher scene is drastic. :( Plus I heard they were they only place to get a half-decent steak...

Hey Clevelanders, I am going to be in Cleveland for a day for an interview at Case Western, If my interview ends at 6:00 pm and my flight is at 8:35 pm Is there any realistic chance of swinging by a fleishig eatery to grab a sandwich to go before the flight? Any recommendations on what will be open and what is delicious?
Thanks a bunch in advance!

Very doubtful IMO It's 20 min. minimum to a restaurant and then they have to cook it then 30 min. to the airport. If you order before you probably can take to go. Are you interviewing for the MED school? A member on here was accepted for next year. You may want his advice for interviews...

Sure.
Case is 10 minutes to Kinneret Pizza, 15 minutes to Sababa/Jerusalem Grill/Issi's, and 20 minutes to Subway.
Bagel Shoppe will be closed.
The airport is about 35 minutes from Kinneret, 30 minutes from Sababa/Jerusalem Grill/Issi's, and 25 minutes from Subway.

If you order in advance there's no reason you can't be at the airport by 7:15.

I think mincha/maariv plus food would be pushing it, but there are shuls next to all of the kosher restaurants besides Subway.

Sababa will add about 20 min r/t. And honestly if you have any sushi places in MD don't bother with Cleveland sushi...you will be sorely disappointed.

You're in a tough spot then.  You'll feel crowded in any apartment, I don't think it makes economic sense to buy a house if you only think you'll be living here for 2 years, and house rentals are overpriced and hard to come by.

Maybe look into the 3 bedroom apartments from huntington green?  Definitely check out zillow.com as well.

The doughnuts with no filling (with the hole in the middle) are a thumbs down if you ask me.
The custard was one of the best I've ever tasted!

On another note Re. Ungar's, was very frustrating and sadening to see the prices you have to deal with vis-a-vis Kosher (Bishul Yisroel, Cholov Yisroel.. לאפוקי Costco) food.  I'd have thought that an area with a frum community that large, and that close to NYC, it would be different..

Huh? The cinnamon donut doesn't have a hole.
Unger's has long had the monopoly on the local kosher market, though that is changing rapidly with Costco carrying tons of kosher products at a fraction of their prices and several local grocery stores vastly growing their kosher sections as well.

You may want to contact owners of houses for sale and see if they are willing to rent.

If you don't want to buy a house you may have to settle on a 3BR apt from Huntington Green, though even those can be tough to find.

My experience is that it would be hard to find a rental anywhere 5 months in advance (as any decent rentals available now would hopefully be taken sooner). That being said the best leads would actually be ppl trying to sell a house now. If you contact them now and they still don't sell by April they'd prob agree to rent it out to you. You can also check out classifieds on localjewishnews.com or even post there (closer to April).

Whirly ball is great for older kids and/or adults.

NFL hall of fame?
Indoor water park?
If you go to the IX center amusement park there are nice discounts on the Jewish community day.

Comedy show on east 4th and the casino makes for a nice night for adults.

Each day they have a different special which can run out quickly.
It's cafeteria style, so no tip needed.
The food is basic, but is very cheap, possibly to encourage ppl to visit their family in the nursing home.

For pizza I go to Kinneret. I go to Issi's for their Fettucini Alfredo (not the greatest, but better than nothing) - was never such a fan of their pizza.

Is their falafel pizza better than Kinneret's pizza?

Make sure to at least get a recommendation for a good kosher pizza shop first. Would be a shame to blow your kosher experience on subpar pizza.

I find them both to be very inconsistent.
On the best of days both can be awesome. On the worst both can be terrible.
But I like to mix it up, definitely worth trying it though.
Order it with extra sauce and ask for it to be well done.

Eh, I'm not too worried. I know someone in CLE who sells awesome Pride of The Farm ice cream. ;D
Meh. Never in stock :P

Update: as it turns out, it's not his fault. They produce PotF ice cream in limited quantities, and the tri-state area gets first dibs - if the NY area orders more ice cream than they produce, CLE gets shafted.

Further complicating matters, there is limited space on the truck that the distributor sends to CLE, so sometimes there isn't even room to send ice cream, even if it is available.

I found the one on Mayfield, It's on the corner of Commodore. That's between Richmond and Brainard, Their address is 5400 Mayfield. (The reason it didn't show up when you searched is because the Chase website only shows you the 5 closest to your location, which in your case would be 44118, If you try searching BE or UH it will show up.)

AT&T U-Verse and Time Warner are the big players.  Either should suit your needs.

Chase is great, though their branch on Chagrin is a little further out than other banks like 5/3, Key, PNC, and Huntington.  Chase does have another branch right on the way to the city though.

A little annoying that he closes so early. I know he's limited with his timing but he should try to have one day with later seatings.

Hey everyone!
I have some more Cleveland questions!:
Anybody have any information on a good leasing company in Cleveland? I'm looking to lease a small car like a civic or a elantra. Do people usually lease from NY?
Also I want to collect the equity in my current lease. Because I have a bunch of stuff going on I would just sell the lease to a big car buyer like CarMax although I wouldn't make as much profit, however I noticed that there is no CarMax in the area. Is there anything comparable? does anyone have any recommendations? (I have a 2010 black Honda Civic if youre interested)
Thanks again for all your help!

No idea about leases.
But my brother did drive to Baltimore to buy a brand new Elantra for just ~$10.5K IIRC.

I think he found them via Zag and negotiated from there.
But he was helped because the Elantra was redone and they were clearing out the old ones which always lands you a big discount.

BA pro-tip: Search segments (i.e. CLE-ORD & ORD-DEN instead of CLE-DEN) gives a much better chance of finding availability.
Title: Re: Cleveland Master Thread

AA only flies to 5 airports from CLE.
JFK, LGA, and ORD will be 9K.
DFW and MIA will be 15K.

Anything else and you'll have to book a separate ticket from one of those 5 airports to your desired destination.
Or use UA miles as they fly nonstop to dozens of cities from CLE.

Just went to Chef Daves.  For starters we had the portobello fries, brisket in puffed pastry, and smoked duck leg. The fries were really good, the brisket had mixed reviews, and the duck was barely average. For the entree we had the steak, chicken milanese, and the duck breast. The streak IMO was phenomenal, ordered it medium rare and it was perfect. The duck again was average and the chicken milanese was good as well. For dessert we ordered the chocolate mousse, the warm apple cobbler, and the watermelon vodka ices with brownie. All average. All in all we had a great time and enjoyed the feel of going to a restaurant in Cleveland!

For a family member: what are the minyananim options right now for shachris?
Didn't see post until now, but for future reference, R Denzinger's shul and Shomer Shabbos have official 9:00 am minyanim Bein Hazmanim... I'd assume that the ppl that go to these minyanim decide the days before the Zman starts as to how long they continue minyan based on interest (best bet is prob to drive by and see if there are cars). Then there's reliable Khal Yereyim which is where everyone goes when they're late. They have latest unofficial minyanim (and their 8:05 minyan usually finishes well past 9). Also, there are usually a whole bunch of stragglers there it just depends if there is a gatherer/Chazan/unlazy guy to make a minyan out of it... I once made a minyan there after 12 although there were prob under 6 mispalelim.

If anyone has a mikva directory they can look in the front and it has a list of all minyanim times.

None of these options would be in the now ancient Mikva Directory as they are all unofficial.

Say hi to my siblings.

Should be able to get a deal scalping if you know how to negotiate. Otherwise just go to the box, tickets are pretty cheap as it is.

Lots of parking garages on Carnegie and on Prospect. $5, $10, or $20 depending on how far you want to walk.

Do you guys eat from the hot dog stand and out of the sukkah?

What section should I ask for? (Looking for cheap tix obviously)
What's the kashrus of the stand?
I wouldn't eat hot dogs out of the sukkah and I doubt my wife would want a hot dog anyways

No, I am asking you to clarify what you are looking for. Generally "broker" refers to a company in my mind, while an "agent" refers to the individual showing houses. It is also possible that someone could be looking for commercial property which would be a different story altogether.

I just saw this story about CLE posted today on the Delta glitch page (maybe they didn't have check-in?):

My parents had glitch tickets to LA and were no going to go. My father woke up yesterday looked out the window and said "WTH" no way I'm passing up LA for 8 inches of snow!
I dropped them off at CLE at 10:50 their plane left at 11:06 they were in their seats by 10:58.

They took advantage of that policy since it was over booked flight (we got message when trying to check in about a bid, since we had 2 separate bookings I decided to find out more about the bum page and maybe be put on a direct flight).
After talking a few min they tried checking us in 27 min before flight and it was locked. They are refusing over and over to put us on different airline.
Even though we are with child we decided instead of going tom from cle and missing a whole day we are on flight to Atlanta and on standby on a full flight from there to phl. There were only a few first class seats so they couldn't confirm any seats for us from Atlanta. Any advice about Atlanta (also advise about jewish community there if your familiar - there's no thread for them..)

No not at all. (Trying to find any other pointers I had said, besides very bad experience with Delta).

Some of the older food related businesses (not eateries), do not take kindly to someone trying to come into their turf. Regarding Sababa, the price he is asking is resonable enough for someone to buy it and completely revamp the place. Make a good fast food place. I think it could make money.

You totally missed my point. I'm not talking about fine dining; I'm saying that even a fast food/burger joint here is more impressive than Cleveland's former "fine dining" champ. :P

Everyone told me I had to go to Sheyan but I don't think it's anything that is worth bragging about.  Unless I should start bragging about J Grill or Sababa.

Make me a list of where I need to go in Israel and when the Waldorf opens I'll have to plan a trip.

Not a whole lot of those, actually. :P Good food, but probably won't hold a candle to Shallots or Milt's.

FTR, a DDFer has been inside the Waldorf already (I'll let him identify himself if he wants). He was at the "launch party" for travel professionals, after which a relative of his (who is pretty high up on the food chain) gave him the master key to the hotel, and let him explore it to his heart's content. :D

Heinens is a rip, but there kosher section is convenient. More expensive than ungers though at least you know the stuff is fresh.
Marcs is ridiculously cheap, but definitely no frills shopping.
OK, so we're all waiting on your verdict on those cc's from Marc's (but not 'those' cc's, the Chocolate Chips = cc's).
Did you/wife get any at this trip? Any first impression reviews?

It's up there in the Top 5, right?
1) VR
2) GCs
3) milk, eggs, OJ
4) chocolate
5) etc..

it's okay -- I'm guessing that at $1.99 a bag at Marc's it's not the quality that we're looking for...
(but still want to hear your reviews - no worries; take your time -- you just got back)

Anyone who just wants the Paskesz, Liebers, Shop-Rite, and Rest. Depot at a cheaper price
won't be able to have this product shipped to their store/city at less than $2.50 per bag.
What's being researched now, instead, is TJ's quality chips that are from the same supplier, and have the same rich taste, OK Hechsher and melt well...
(Making progress now on quantities and price, just working out shipping costs per case/truck.)

He asked where we got that and we said Ungers.
He's like, don't touch that. We stopped making dips a decade ago!
Which makes perfect sense if you've been inside Ungers.

There is, inside heinen's.  But their selection is mediocre and their prices are higher.
Someone should open real competition but everyone's scared to start up with them.

But there's tons of empty space in the mall where Target is, can probably get a real sweetheart rent deal as they're desperate.  Prob the best place IMHO as it's centrally located.

Doesn't really answer the question. Yes, the individual restaurants are not very good and therefore closed down. The question is why hasn't a decent business person recognized the market and opened a decent place? It begs the question maybe there really isn't a market in CLE? Alternatively, business ppl in CLE have lower IQs than other cities.

People with high IQs and/or business acumen go into more lucrative, less time intensive businesses than the food business.

Agreed, yet with that said there are still successful restaurants in other cities (LA, Miami, NYC, YUL, YYZ etc.). Which leads back to my question, why has no one opened a successful restaurant in CLE?

Sorry, but I agree with the comment way up thread. Cleveland general mentality is a simpler lifestyle. Clevelanders aren't into luxury even if they can afford it. Look at the cars, houses, etc. There are people worth $100s of millions that drive cars worth less than people in MIA making $50k a year.

Yes, it's a beautiful thing for those who can get over the brainwashed Lakewood/Brooklyn KUWTJ mentality, but at the end of the day eating out is a quasi luxury, and it's not CLE. IMO Chef Dave is successful because it's a limited time opportunity, and it gives people an extra kick to take a night out. But on a regular night the average CLE family would rather a simpler dinner at home, than a night out

I would say the majority of Frum food establishments are poorly managed. As they say, if you want to make some money in the food business, start with a lot of it.

In addition, the reason why a competent food person hasn't done anything is probably because he believes that if he builds it they wont come

They are keeping on Ronnie which is nice. Let's hope the new owners will listen to some suggestions. One of the big problems is that in the same strip is Jack's Deli. Jack's negotiated into their contact with the landlords certain exclusivities on what other food items can be sold in that strip.

I need some help. I have never been to Cleveland before. I am attending a convention at the end of July for about a week at the IX Center. I'm looking for a nice hotel. Are there any nice hotels around the convention center? Is it worth it to stay in the really nice hotels (Hyatt Regency ...) in the city? If I would stay downtown how bad is the traffic every morning like 9 am and 6 pm to and from the convention center? Obviously it's much easier for me to stay near the convention center but if the hotels are a lot nicer then maybe it's worth it. Thank you. I can't wait to see Cleveland!

How is the Hyatt Regency downtown? Really nice? What is the nicest hotel in Cleveland?
It's in an old landmark building with a lot of history.
Rooms are a bit dated, but the suites are incredibly massive for a downtown property.
They can be persuaded to give diamonds kosher brekkie for free.
One of the top ranked spas in the city and it gives 25% off to Hyatt guests plus you can use Spafinder certs that are 20% off at Costco.

Nicest hotels are probably the Ritz or the Renaissance.

The brand new Aloft near you looked great, too.
Their opening weekend was around the time of DDSCLE.
Looks close by.
Our location sold their Category 2 SPG (near the airport) to Wyndham.
The other 2 (Sheratons) moved up to Category 3.
Working towards 50 nights in 2014 -- The Cat. 2 would have been more helpful towards 2015 Plat.

hi -- I thought that you lived in Cleveland (based on their regular Restaurant Nights that were mentioned),
and if you do not attend those, then other cities nearby have them from 5:00 - 9:00pm.

They are gourmet, well-priced, and after the general workday. I work after those hours, as well, however, I was referring to the end of the regular workday.  b'Hatzlacha in all your travels and endeavors.

Just an FYI regarding the Kosher hot dog stand at Progressive Field. On the days when there is no Mashgiach, a different grill is used at the stand. Cleveland Kosher has a grill that only they have a key to, when the mashgiach is there he opens it up and wheels it into the stand. When he is not there they use the one that is built in to the stand. Again just an FYI, I'm not paskining just informing.

There is a Yeshiva in JLC basement and Beachwood Kollel in next house, within that area he can get Pizza, slurpee at Speedway, Shachris at 7:25 in kollel, or at 8:05 (upstairs JLC), Mincha @ 2:45 (I think) and be pretty close to wedding hall...

About how much is the UberX from CLE?
It seems that the quickest way by subway is about 1hr and a half :-\ , is there a quicker way that Google Maps is not telling me?
(It tells me to take the Subway Red Line to either Tower City, then take the light rail down Shaker Blvd, or to Cedar Uni. and then take a city bus down Cedar Rd).

Re. CAK, is that there any cheaper option?  I'd need to arrive at the airport (from Beachwood/University Heights) by 5:30 am.

As far as Dan's response, from Beachwood they may not go there anyways, but from CH ppl go. There are def things to buy there. As with any supermarket, usually Costco will beat their reg prices but not the sale prices...

Wow, I just learned a whole lot about Cleveland. I learned it years late, specifically between 11pm and 1am this evening. Wish I would have seen this when I still lived there. Almost makes me want to go back there to get the full Cleveland experience of Dan and DDF approved activities and foods.

Anyways to my point, what about Tibor's jerky? A Cleveland highlight IMHO.
I had it the last time the NY Giants won the Superbowl, only frame of reference I can think of. Best kosher beef jerky I have ever had. The only good one I have ever had for that matter. Great flavor and still had some hints of plump juiciness despite the dry beef implying jerky title. The only one that didn't feel like it needed to be chewed, chewed, and re-chewed, like a bad or old piece of reheated stringy chinese sesame chicken.

I know beef jerky is no big deal to some, but still can't believe on a long running a thread dedicated to Cleveland with many Cleveland experts, on a site operated by a proud Cleveland resident and expert there has been no mention. 

Well anyways, here it is, there, I wanted to document it, for eternity, hopefully, hope I didn't egregiously break any forum posting rules or etiquette in the process.

They're in a very high-rent location and really ought to offer more hot food dishes to cover that.  Paninis and stuff would be really simple and profitable.  They should look at Holy Cow's menu for ideas.

I will go to a game, and then hang around in Cleveland, and hopefully find some other exciting things to do. I will head down with some Avios. It should be a nice short vacation for this upcoming year.

Looking forward. Lets go Cleveland, and the Cavs.

I joined the "wine gold and united club" for 200 per set of tickets. So in total, I will get 4 tickets. I need to call tomorrow to select which section I want.

Interestingly, they are only selling partial ticket plans to those with an Ohio zip code.

Does anyone know the best value for season tickets in Quicken Loans arena? I used to be in the ticket business in NY, and it's crazy how much cheaper the tickets are in Cleveland. I am thinking of getting one set as a "baseline straight sections" (6160), and then another set as well. If there are any Cavs fans who know the arena well, please chime in. Thanks in advance for your help, and perhaps next year we can have a DO at a Cavs game.

476 to  80.
Title: Re: Cleveland Master Thread
Post by: kracked dude on July 20, 2014, 11:36:28 AM
1) PA turnpike (276) to Northeast Extension (476) to 80 (pretty much same timing, pretty much free, more places to stop, mostly seperate highways for East and West, can have construction in summer)
2) PA turnpike (276, 76) to Ohio Turnpike (76, 80) (officially faster by 10-20 min, costs more, better driving conditions in winter, not as much construction in summer, mostly one divided Highway)

That's basically the 2 ways, few different variants to get from Lakewood to the PA turnpike

Actually starting next week an 100 mile stretch of 76 will be going up to 70 mph matching the speed limit on the Ohio Turnpike. But beware, it still won't be consistent with lower speeds posted at some curves.

Most of 76 from Akron till the 80 is 70mph. 80 is 65 most of the way, and goes down to 55-50 before NJ.
Then in Jersey goes back up to 65.

Drove it last night..

Didn't see one cop, but then again was pitch black.
Made the 450 mile trek in 6:15. Average of 72. With one stop to pee and gas..

So you prove my point. 80 is the better of the 2. Also going from Lakewood to Cleveland you do not go on that stretch of 76 (Akron) which you are referring to.

Just some places off the top of my head, check them out and see if they fit your needs and interest

Exit 284....?? I think that was it. In PA. Get off the highway, make a right, about half a mile on your left hand side is a nature park. Nice river to put your feet in, some trails to walk around in.

It's not half way but a nice stopping point.

Coming from Lakewood, the NE Extension hits the 80 at Exit 277, so you would have to go East for 7 miles to get to 284.

Not nearly halfway, but there is a cute free factory simulated tour at Hershey PA. Tour takes about 20 min, IIRC, goung on a little train ride through a 'factory' showing how chocolate is made. Even if you keep CY, there are some (non-hershey) dark chocolate (OU Pareve) for sale in the gift shop, as well as twizzlers.

Now I know its a lot of driving, but I figure that its easier for me to put the kids in the car around their bedtime & stay in one place, rather than shlepp them out of a car into a plane back into a car rental.....  hopefully I'll get a quiet drive thereby saving myself 60k points + a one way car rental.

So thoughts please!

2) Presque Isle State Park (http://www.presqueisle.org) a beautiful state park with miles of freshwater beaches about 1h45min east of cle

If he gets in exactly before 9:15 there are 2 9:00 AM minyanim. Shomre Shabbos and Beis Doniel (3795 Severn) - these 9's are till Rosh Chodesh only... After the 9's he'll prob get minyan at Khal Yereyim (though he may have to wait some as the 9-915 traffic go to the other shuls)

+1. I think the owner is nuts for not moving to NYC and selling it locally there. Every shabbos table in NY would be eating it.

I also happen to think the owner is nuts for many different reasons, but refusing to move back to NYC is not one of them!

please god, in a week or two, I plan on flying down to Cleveland to pick out my suite for the Cavs at Quicken loans arena. Once I am coming down, I think I want to stay for one night and two days.

I have a bunch of different types of points, so that isn't an issue.

What's the best way to fly? Avios, no? What's the best hotel to stay near the arena? What's the best restaurant? Finally, what are some other activities you recommend me doing when I come?

TIA! I haven't been in Cleveland yet, and am looking forward. Perhaps, we can have a DO. I always wanted to join a Cleveland one. :)

The ATM in Beachwood, I believe it's 27599 Chagrin Rd. Exit 271 left on 422 (which is Chagrin) accepts deposits. I used to go there and then just started doing Mobile banking deposit instead... No branches anywhere close...

Any ideas on where to stay that will not be too expensive?
Also is there a anywhere I can get a large ponton for the day and attach a tube to it? The places I've seen online (that weren't too far) all seem to be in no wake zones.

For a poonton with a tube you can go to west branch marina . Its called a vip pontoon . (Not as fast as speed boat ... especially if the boat is filled with ppl ) .  Its 45 min from the jewish area .    Not sure if its near the spot you want to stay ...

For some people here that is like asking "I would like to open the same business as yours what suppliers are you using how much profit are you making and most important what would be the best way to shut your business down" and after the Car story I'm not blaming them but the chances of you getting a answer out of anyone who has one is basically 0

For the record... not only do I not know what the heck you're talking about ("car story"?!), but even the little bit of your post that I think I do understand is making you sound like a total idiot. >:(

Seriously?! Buying GCs is a "business"?! Trying to ask someone where he buys them is the same as hasagas g'vul?! And mind you, it's not like I'm asking for top-secret info - in Chicago, for example, I was told that Jewel Osco sells GCs (assuming you can find one that has them in stock), and it's a well-known fact - similar to CVS. All I'm asking is if there is a local, equivalent chain in CLE. Or maybe I should stop announcing that CVS/Staples/etc. sells GCs, for fear of "giving up people's suppliers"?!

If you don't have anything to contribute - or better yet, anything nice to say - then shut up. Capische?

In Cleveland Heights there are usually 2 options. Khal Yereim has at 7:25. Torah LIFE kollel has, but I'm not sure what time, usually it is early, but since it's Bein Hazmanim still - they'll prob have at 6:00. I'll post again if I can confirm the time...

MINI TR

I Signed up for SW cc, got 50k points.  I ended up using it for a total of 10! Tickets.

3 to Chicago, during mid winter vacation.   
On Erev shavuos, there was a 3 day SW Sale and I found $49 tix to Akron. I also had a 20% off coupon , so I ended up getting 7 free tickets,(From points) then I bought 3 for $294

Our Flight (LGA-CAK) was delayed 3 hours, I got email while we were loading car so I knew before hand, so we just stayed home.
We Left to lga, and arrived 45 min prior to flight.(got $100 voucher for each person for delay) The Airport was hot, like a 3rd world country, so I used my AA executive card to take all 10 of us into admirals club, ate our supper + got as much soda as everyone wanted.(Children)

I Rented 12 passenger van in Akron, used sapphire to rent- so I wouldn't have to pay ins ect...  Stayed in Sheraton in Akron, 2 suites for cash + points. Nice place. 

We Drove to Sandusky and went to Cedar Point.  Park is dated, bathrooms need to be upgraded, but over all experience was great....no lines. Seems that in Ohio they started school already(End of August). Went to African safari- got tickets from groupon posted the day I left.

Also went to putin bay, kind of expensive to get there, but renting bikes & golf carts, was well worth it!     
Drove back to Beachwood, stayed @ ALOFT using  spg points (3 rooms).   

When I returned car, I payed for it using Barclay card.

Honestly google will serve you much better than asking here. All kosher restaurants are within 7 minutes of each other. So put in any of the ones in the wiki that sound interesting and start google mapping your route.

Say hi to my siblings.

Should be able to get a deal scalping if you know how to negotiate. Otherwise just go to the box, tickets are pretty cheap as it is.

Lots of parking garages on Carnegie and on Prospect. $5, $10, or $20 depending on how far you want to walk.


Thanks. I'm not that much of a negotiator... Do the prices go down online before the game starts?
Do I need a ticket for a 1 year old or can he be a lap child?


Just buy tix at the box office.
No need for a ticket for a 1 year old but color me impressed. Haven't taken Rafi yet.

StubHub closes ticketing 2 hours before the event, you were asking within that limit.

Don't base decisions on weather report. Go by percentages... I played in a league this spring/summer and 14/15 weeks we didn't get cancellation, the one time they called off it was sunny out (decision was based on puddles, but that's debatable too). I'm sure the Indians have similar percentage that over 90% of the time they play... Weather.com and wunderground will predict rain chances 50% or higher on most days... If they predict 40/50 degrees outside that's a reason not to go because of weather, but I'd take my chances on any day 70 degrees + and go and hope for the best...

Quote
During the open season, in the Historic Village, our well-informed, costumed staff and working tradesmen demonstrate and share stories in historic homes, buildings and shops about life in northwest Ohio during the early 1800s thru to 1910. For those who enjoy browsing undisturbed, a visit to the large museum of antiques and exhibits is the answer.

Has anyone else had this problem? Tried to talk to Ellie's about switching their classification? I understand that there used to be a chocolate shop at that location (and they still sell chocolates) but it's primarily a restaurant now.

You can try Solon Chabad, they seem like the closest option off the highway on your route 5570 Harper Road, Solon, OH 44139 (440) 498-9533. Don't know if they have though. Otherwise you'll have to take a 20 minute detour to Beachwood.

Relatively yes. Some are much nicer than others.

The one at LGA was nice, but I didn't find it to be significantly nicer than many of the others that I've stayed at. The room felt a bit tighter than others (typical for a hotel in NYC) but the rooftop with the pool and workout room was nice. Overall on par.

both meadowlands/NJ and baltimore/BWI have a great one with a friendly staff;
what's also great is the Hyatt House -- for the same # of points you can get a King/Double Suite with sep room and sofa bed for 2-3 children. Full kitchen, full-size fridge, stove-top, microwave, sink, coffee-maker, breakfast, etc...

I think Ungers donuts are the only kosher item in Cleveland anyone ever called good.

The best meat entrees in Cleveland right now are probably in the refrigerator of Heinen's.
Title: Re: Cleveland Master Thread
Post by: jj1000 on March 17, 2015, 02:14:49 PM
Seriously though kosher food to try in Cleveland is:

Unger's Cinnamon, custard, miami, and glaze donuts.

Tibor's Beef Jerky, spicy salami.

Shannon Road Ice cream, peanut butter cup, cookie dough, snikerdoodle, and toffee bar.

Bagel Shoppe, Jalapeno bagel with cream cheese and garlic crunch. Garlic bagel with cheese omelet and hash browns.

Contempo Fudge brownie's sold at Heinen's. (Many of their other foods are the best meat dishes you'll find in Cle. Their soups are the best in town as well.)

Sweet cakes by Mimi cake pops.

(I've never been to the new place downtown so can't comment on it.)
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

If you have to eat at other places here are some recommendations.

Subway: Nothing really worth going for. The meatball sub, and teriyaki chicken are OK. Italian herb bread is a must. Some of the cookies are good.

Issi's: Falafel pizza well done with extra sauce. Be sure all their pies are well done with extra sauce. Some salads are good. Chili fries, and eggplant wrap are good as well.

Jerusalem grill: Falafel is good. Chinese food is entirely mediocre, but palatable if you are in the mood of Chinese. I like the Crispy Chicken sandwich.

Kinneret: The pizza is usually better than Issis. You should try the fried Cauliflower for something different. Eggplant parm is pretty good.

Sababa: Very hit or miss. Chicken tenders are good with their 3 dips, and the schnitzel sandwich.

Ellie's Waffles: Waffles need to be cooked longer than they normally do, flavors are usually some canned something. Get what you are in the mood of. Has such potential but they don't execute it well. Soups are usually pretty good.

Lax and Mandel: Bagels are ok, skip anything else.

Boris: He has some nice sausages for sale he makes, and beef jerky type stuff as well.

To be continued.

"Looking for a future Chef.
Do you know of anybody - in Cleveland or elsewhere - who has a serious interest in becoming a professional cook/chef, or maybe a family you know outside of Cleveland with a post-high school child who has that interest and desire to have a career in this field? Or someone looking to make a career change. Age is not a factor, although maturity definitely does matter!

I'm looking to pay-it-forward, so to speak, and be a mentor to someone with the energy and passion to work hard, learn and be serious about reaching their potential.

We're looking for someone for full-time long-term work who will be my right-hand-person and who will be involved in many aspects of the kitchen and business, well beyond simply food prep and cooking.

We all know that Jewish life in Cleveland is a fairly easy sell, so feel free to share and pass thing along to friends out of town so the right person can find us and so we can find the right person!

Potential candidates can reach me directly at Dave@Chefdavescatering.com"

Abby's soup & salad review:
It's located in the Huntington bank building (not Key bank building, the other tall building; catty-corner to tower city/horseshoe casino). There are no seats in the restaurant but it's located right next to the fountains which have plenty of tables/seating and makes for a pretty nice ambience.

Pricing was very reasonable (a full meal for 2 adults was ~ $20). The soups seem to be available on a rotating basis. The tomato & rice soup was delicious and piping hot. We passed on the salads (but the salad bar looked nice ad fresh). We ordered wraps (there are only 2 options and they tasted nearly identical), they are kept in the fridge. Due to the fridge they are served cold, and would have been significantly better if they were warmed up. I did not ask, but had heard previously that they do not currently have a microwave/ warming option available (I used the soup as a sauce/warmer). I would not order the wrap again without it being served warm. The quiche was also served cold and had very little flavor. Chocolate chip muffin was fresh and delicious!

Service was friendly and nice (we had a really hard time finding it at first, and they offered an unsolicited 10% off for the inconvenience!)

Would definitely go again if we were in the area (or planned as part of a day trip to museum/lake/downtown).

Looking for a dirt-cheap car rental in Cleveland for about a week, starting tomorrow. Are there any locations (say, local neighborhood branch as opposed to Hopkins) that are known to be cheaper than others? I'm specifically posting here and not in the generic car rental thread because I'm looking for "inside info from the locals". :P

So far I've been quoted approximately $130 at CLE airport. Would I do better at a local branch, or with some corp code that is known to work better in Cleveland specifically, or whatever?

was there today just to clarify this not a restaurant it is more like a soup and salad stand with a few other small items. I had a salad which was very good. I liked the different options such as marinated portebello mushrooms, grilled peppers, grilled eggplant. dressings were also good. i picked up tuna wrap for my wife she said it was good. I asked abby why she doesnt have option to heat up food. she said she not into microwave. And any oven would have to be commercial grade and she doesnt have room. She targeting people who work in the area and will take food back to office. Hope she is successful. Its definitely convenient for someone who works downtown or has to go for meeting to grab quick kosher bite.

Depends how far you are willing to walk. You'll see lots of parking options between $10-$20 depending how many blocks away.

Not even sure who hit it, but it was pitched by Kelvin Herrera.  Think it was hit by David Murphy.

The enjoyable part of catching a ball at a game is the story that goes with it. A big part of the story is the hitter. Otherwise its no different than just buying a ball at the gift shop...

You're in a tough spot then.  You'll feel crowded in any apartment, I don't think it makes economic sense to buy a house if you only think you'll be living here for 2 years, and house rentals are overpriced and hard to come by.

Maybe look into the 3 bedroom apartments from huntington green?  Definitely check out zillow.com as well.

How far away is huntington green from the shulls? is it a building with a bunch of young couples?

Maybe a 10-15 minute walk.  It's a large complex, lots of young people.
Though rental rates have been climbing steadily, so if you have a down payment a mortgage is significantly cheaper that rent.

It's prob cheaper even without a down payment... I'd wonder if someone made the comparison between renting a house and an apartment in UH...

There's PMI which is a ripoff, but it's definitely doable in Cleveland... To be more specific, I know ppl who bought/are buying house without any savings for down payment but use either Gemachs ($5k loan) or program ($10k down payment assistance) or both...

Went to Chef Dave's last night because the Menu  (https://chefdavescatering.com/uploads/menus/Restaurant_Nights_Menu_060815.pdf)looked so darn good. Here's what I got.

"BBQ Steak Sliders Horseradish mayo and baby spinach on mini challah rolls"

The steak was cold, if ordered you must request them to make sure the meat is served warm, the Challah rolls are pretty plain and didn't taste very good, their biggest problem was the size, sliders need small buns especially when there is such little meat. I liked the taste, but if I ordered it again it needs at least double meat if not triple for that size bun.

(https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/464/18638677135_27bc9eaebf_c.jpg)

"Toasted Ravioli Panko-coated, deep-fried pumpkin ravioli"

Definitely skip this. The thick breading made the main flavor of this dish into fried oil. It was so overwhelming with an oil taste I couldn't enjoy it. I tried the inside pumpkin and it was a nice flavor, but the breaded outside is just too strong a taste to enjoy it.

(https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/521/18016022334_b479abdda3_c.jpg)

"Soup Du Jour Wild mushroom beef & barley"

This is cholent soup. And that isn't a bad thing because the flavor was pretty good. It is  a hearty mushroom barley soup with generous portions of meat, as opposed to a creamy soup. It had a very good taste and was the first thing that I was enjoying, at first the cholent flavor was hard to get past, but it really does taste good.

(https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/494/18451429398_f6cfbe46fd_c.jpg)

"Smoked BBQ Veal Chop - 16oz Bone-In
Lightly smoked with applewood and finished on the grill with our BBQ sauce.
Served with roasted rainbow carrots & zucchini and smokehouse-spiced French fries. "

Veal chop was AMAZING!!! When we drove up to young israel we commented how it smelled really good out here, that was the veal cooking inside a smoker with applewood flavor. The meat was so tender and flavorful I couldn't get enough of this. You have to enjoy a smokey BBQ flavor, but this veal was a real treat and made my night. Easily the best veal I've ever had. The grilled veggie medley underneath the steak also had a nice smokey finish that complimented the veal well. The house fries have a nice rub on them to add some flavor.

(https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/457/18016028184_796a8b5912_c.jpg)

I was in a rush so that's all I had for the meal, I wish I had skipped the apps and just gotten the soup and veal, as the menu changes I guess it's hit or miss. If anyone goes and orders the Truffle risoto give me a ring because I want to try that.

Hilarious how they are using Lax and Mandel a little hole in the wall nothing that didn't even sell Milk, to the need for a luxurious grocery store with ready food.

Ungers stinks and we don't have any other option besides Heinen's that charges an arm and a leg for a tiny selection.

This is much needed. And sounds great.

Location leaves what to be desired. But it is close enough to Costco I assume and a lot of the not-frum in the area may shop their too.

A special use permit was required for the creamery, called Shannon Road Ice Cream, to be operated at Heights Jewish Center. Lipman said the business is a wholesale operation, not retail, and that the business owners, Daniel and Rachel Dadusc, who live on Shannon Road in Cleveland Heights, will use the synagogue’s kitchen only to produce the ice cream.
“The business is not associated with the synagogue,” he said. “We are renting (the owners) the space. No one will pick up ice cream there.”

that's great news, however, it's going to be complicated to transport the finished frozen product to sell elsewhere if they are not allowed to sell on-site.
We still have a few flavors from our last purchase -- delicious! It's an excellent product that will be a big hit for those who are lactose intolerant,
or those who want ice cream following a meat meal. I do not think that the fat content will be high. It's rich, but there's no milkfat.

i don't think that it will be higher than those brands.
I think that printing labels for 20 different flavors takes time to calculate the serving sizes and nutritional content, and they then printed on large stickers that also cost money.

They'd need to calculate the ice cream and then add the nutritional content to the items mixed in (the peanut butter cups -- Yum!, and the snickerdoodle, fudge brownie,.. etc..)
It's just a time issue,  and designing it, imo -- I've done it for my chocolate. The other expense is now their rental fee -- however if they can sell out of more public places (or from supermarkets/Unger's, Heinens, Tibor's, Boris, etc..) then they're all set.

There was a time some years ago he sold it in a retail store. He printed the label and from what I heard it was a deterrent to sales. The ice cream though is so good. Last week I got just cookie dough balls from him and had them with the peanut butter ice cream. It was insane!

Was going to suggest having bunch of people calling. All my (non ddf)friends are also bummed by the options. If we tell them they'll be demand, they might update...
Or easier option is to call in your order like posted...
So what should I order? (never been)

The good dishes are:

-Rib Sandwich
-Milts Burger
-Slab of Ribs

Of which they have none :(

When Arhaus Outlet in Brooklyn runs a sale you can get a good deal on high-end returns.
Got our dining room set that way for 80% less than the cost of a new set from their Legacy Village store.

Probably will have something for BF I'd imagine. Still not quite as cheap as Ikea, but infinitely better quality.

Cleveland is big enough to support both of them -- their prepared foods, sushi, meats, deli, bakeries, and grocery/fruits and vegetables will keep shoppers coming for one-stop shopping convenience with large free parking lots.

The question is if the community will still be able to support Ungers, Tibor's, Boris, etc...??
