Weekend Scoop: Cleveland Edition

by Kay Lynn

Hall of Fame

I had a business trip to Cleveland this past week.  It’s a city I’ve visited many times during my career.  My favorite place there is the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.  It’s a must see for music fans.  There’s a special exhibit through February titled Women who Rock. Even Lady Gaga’s meat dress is on display although I’m more a Stevie Nicks fan.

On my list for my next trip is a visit to Michael Symon’s restaurant, Lola Bistro. There’s always something to look forward to.

Around the Web

You know I love to travel and I wrote about three ways to tour cities for free at Couple Money last week.  Be sure to check out these articles that included some of your favorite posts.

I loved seeing the Rock and Roll hall of fame. The thing that I remembered the most was the hand written Alice in Chains list of songs to perform. This is kind of funny because I only know one Alice in Chains song…”Would?”

Do you go to Cleveland often? You’re practically in my backyard!

Ironically I haven’t been to the Rock -n- Roll Hall of Fame yet, but most of my family has, and they love it.

@ Super Frugalette, I remember the hand written lyrics by John Lennon. It was so interesting to see how he scratched words out and get a feel for how the artists work on their songs.

@ Money Reasons, I guess I go there about once a year or so. It’s just been a lot over my career, LOL. We have locals that have never been to Catalina Island so I understand not seeing the sights you live by.

@ Jana, It’s a fun place so make sure you go some day.

My husband always talks about visiting the Rock and Roll Museum. He is hoping one of these days one of us will have a conference there.

Have only been to Cleveland once but did get to enjoy the R&R HOF when we went. Great place!

Never been to Cleveland before. My best friend lived there for a couple of years, she loves the place. It is on the ever growing list of places to visit…

Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is a great place. Whenever in Cleveland which doesn’t happen too often, I am trying to visit.

Surfed over from Yakezie, and had to comment when I saw the pic of the Rock Hall:)
Was born and raised in Cleveland, and I’m always glad to hear people talk about it positively. It was an amazing place to grow up– at once a big city, but with more of a small town, neighborly feel. Though we live in the country now, I am still within half an hour of downtown and all there is to see and do- something that isn’t possible in many large cities.
If you can’t make it to Lola, Michael Symon also has another bistro, Lolita, and several ‘B’ Spot restaurants around town– you will not be disappointed by any of them.

@ Mom’s Plans: Although I wouldn’t be excited about Cleveland as a conference destination, the R&RHOF is well worth the visit.

@ Money Beagle: Isn’t it fun? The interesting thing is that everyone loves it from those in their 60’s to the 20-something in our group.

@ Suba: The city has vastly improved over the last couple of decades (like most older cities) but I don’t care for it in the winter. That lake effect weather can be awful!

@ Bad Credit: Glad to hear from another HOF fan.

@ Tony: Thanks for the update on your giveaway. Hope you get lots of entries!

@ Denise: Thanks for letting me know about the other restaurants by Michael Symon. We were staying in Solon.

You were really close— there is one on Chagrin in Beachwood.
By the way, even most of us who are native Clevelanders hate the winters— I fly south for a couple months.
