  1. Cleveland City Council approves closing jail, selling police headquarter CLEVELAND, Ohio - Cleveland City Council voted Monday to approve legislation to close the city's jail and to pay Cuyahoga County to house prisoners and suspects. Council also voted to sell the downtown building that houses the city jail and police headquarters to Cuyahoga County. With closure of the jail, the headquarters could be moved to another building downtown. The long-discussed deal is expected to save Cleveland about $5 million a year. Rather than operating a jail, the city would pay the county $99 a day per person to house its prisoners. The Cuyahoga County sheriff's staff would handle the booking of all prisoners. http://www.cleveland.com/metro/index.ssf/2017/06/cleveland_city_council_to_appr.html#incart_m-rpt-1

  3. Cleveland's Ritz-Carlton launches major renovation; new GM wants hotel to be best in the Midwest CLEVELAND, Ohio – Leave it to a newcomer to set the bar this high. New general manager Yael Ron, who arrived in Cleveland just two months ago, predicts the Ritz-Carlton, celebrating its 25th anniversary this year, will become the top-rated hotel in the Midwest. But first: a long overdue, top-to-bottom renovation of what has long been considered the most opulent of Cleveland accommodations. Landing the Ritz-Carlton was considered a coup for Cleveland in the early 1990s. It opened as part of what was then the high-end Tower City Center retail complex, on the top nine floors of a 14-story office building adjacent to the mall. But in recent years, the hotel has shifted its focus. Since 2011, the Ritz-Carlton has been owned by companies affiliated with Dan Gilbert, the owner of the Cleveland Cavaliers and JACK Cleveland Casino, located across the mall from the hotel. It has become largely a casino hotel, setting aside a big percentage of its rooms for casino high rollers http://www.cleveland.com/travel/index.ssf/2016/09/clevelands_ritz-carlton_launch.html
  4. I heard from a friend who knows the owners that Brewnuts might be opening in the Detroit Shoreway area. Not sure if that would be a permanent spot or just a pop up spot. I couldn't find anything from them directly that confirms this though.
  5. Just curious to see if anyone knows why there were fireworks downtown tonight? I couldn't find anything and it wasn't for the Indians.
  6. Ikea plans Columbus store, but that doesn't rule out Cleveland-area project CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Furnishings giant Ikea will announce Tuesday morning that it is planning a second Ohio store - in Columbus, not Greater Cleveland. But that news shouldn't discourage the retailer's fans in Northeast Ohio. "A store in Columbus does not preclude a Cleveland-area store," Joseph Roth, a company spokesman, wrote in an email late Monday evening. "They are separate and distinct metropolitan areas, both of which can support an Ikea store long-term on their own." Ikea confirmed, in a media alert, that it has staked out a Columbus-area site. The retailer expects to divulge more details at an 11 a.m. news conference at the Quest Conference Center off of Polaris Parkway, just east of Interstate 71. Citing unnamed sources, the Columbus Dispatch reported that Ikea is planning a 354,000-square-foot building on 33 acres, on the site of the former Germain Amphitheater. The Dispatch said the store will open in 2017. That site would put a third Ikea store within a 170-mile radius of Cleveland. The Swedish retailer already has stores in Pittsburgh - a two-hour drive - and Canton, Michigan - a slightly longer trek. Ikea's only Ohio store opened in 2008 in West Chester, near Cincinnati. http://www.cleveland.com/business/index.ssf/2015/01/ikea_plans_columbus_store_but.html#incart_2box
  7. I'm sure they already knew they were opening the store in Columbus when they bought the land in Brooklyn. It's not like they just made the decision within the last month. This makes me think they still plan on opening one in the Cleveland market but its probably further away then we had initially thought.
  8. Cleveland among 24 U.S. cities vying to host Centennial Copa America soccer tournament games Northeast Ohio soccer fans might have something big to look forward to in 2016. Cleveland is one of 24 U.S. cities that have expressed interest in hosting games during next year's Centennial Copa America, according to this news release from the Confederation of North, Central America and Caribbean Association Football. The organization, known as CONCACAF, said “between eight and 13 stadiums will ultimately be selected” to host games for the 16-nation tournament, which will be played June 3-26, 2016. It will be the first time this tournament has been staged outside South America. “One important factor in determining the winning bids will be a recommended stadium seating capacity of at least 50,000, as this high-profile tournament is sure to draw multitudes of fans to each stadium selected,” CONCACAF said in the release. The cities that expressed interest in hosting games are as follows: Atlanta; Baltimore; Boston; Chicago; Cleveland; Dallas; Denver; Detroit; Houston; Indianapolis; Jacksonville, Fla.; Kansas City, Mo.; Los Angeles; Nashville, Tenn.; New York/New Jersey; Orlando, Fla.; Philadelphia; Phoenix; St. Louis; San Diego; San Francisco; Seattle; Tampa, Fla.; and Washington, D.C.
  9. So I went to a couple places including Fridrich's in ohio city. I have decided I don't want a true road bike but I like the hybrids but still not sure on which one. I tested a couple of them and sort of liked the Diamondback Insight 2. It just felt comfortable while I rode it and it seems like would be able to get to places with ease but then again all I had previously was a mountain bike which I haven't ridden in a while. I also tried a couple others I dont remember the name other then it being by Raleigh but they didn't feel as comfortable or smooth. I guess my question now is would the insight 2 be an okay bike for the price? Is the quality decent for the price point? Can I get something similar that is better for about the same price? http://www.rei.com/product/867327/?cm_mmc=cse_PLA-_-pla-_-product-_-8673270002&diamondback-insight-2-bike-2014,-red,-medium&preferredSku=8673270002&mr:trackingCode=E33CDDB7-B28E-E311-90E9-BC305BF82162&mr:referralID=NA&mr:device=c&mr:adType=pla&mr:ad=44322751120&mr:keyword=&mr:match=&mr:filter=61471052680&msid=H8CMC37K_dc|pcrid|44322751120|#specsTab
  10. I'll be going tomorrow to some local bike shops now that I have a better idea of what to look for thanks to everyone here. Hopefully between the advice and a fitting I can get something I will feel comfortable with.
  11. Thanks again for the advice so far everyone its been helpful. I'm pretty sure at this point I'll go to a local bike shop. I'll check the ones out around Ohio City / Tremont. Just a couple questions: 1. The suggestion to get toe clips - Is it easy to get your foot out of those incase you needed to for any reason? 2. Do most bike shops assist with fittings / measurements and do they actually let you test bikes out? Thanks for the suggestion X for testing the Bike but I didnt know if all these bike shops allow you to do that. 3. I know my budget is on the cheaper end but is there anything specific I should look for? Size of wheel / material / etc.
  12. Thanks everyone for the advice so far. If I do go to a local shop anyone ever had any experience with Fridrich's in Ohio City or any places near Old Brooklyn?
  13. Hi guys, I have been looking to get a new bike but not really sure where to start. I currently just have a mountain bike but I'm looking more for a road / commuter bike. I would probably use it for commuting occasionally probably less then 15 miles in a day and occasionally go on some paved park trails. I'm just starting to get into biking more often so I don't need anything too crazy and prefer the flat bars for now also. I'm hoping I can spend under $500 if possible and looking to get on advice on what I should be looking for and what route might be the best. I have found some bikes online through bikes direct and wondering if anyone has used them. I'm in the Cleveland area and I know there are a bunch of bikes shops but wasn't sure if I could get something with my price range. There was this bike I was looking at online and didn't know if this is actually a good deal or if I can get something better within my price range. http://www.bikesdirect.com/products/mercier/galaxy_tour.htm http://www.bikesdirect.com/products/motobecane/cafe_latte_x.htm Also saw this from Sears - http://www.sears.com/schwinn-700c-men-s-volare-bike/p-00670024000P?prdNo=3&blockNo=53&blockType=G53 I constantly hear that the bikes from department stores usually are not that good of quality and was wondering if that was really true or if it might be better to get a used bike from Craigslist that might be better for the same price. Anyway if anyone can point me in the right direction as to what to look for, where to look or possibly some examples of bikes and prices that would be great.
  14. Web.com Tour coming to Lakewood Country Club June 5-8 CLEVELAND - Professional golf is coming to Cleveland this summer. The Web.com Tour will bring the Cleveland Open to Lakewood Country Club in Westlake June 5-8. Executive Director of the Cleveland Open Ben Cooke said this tournament will have a huge impact on the local community. “I think for Cleveland it means a number of things. In terms of economic impact we’re talking about six to eight million dollars to the community and huge charitable donations to the charitable partners,” Cooke said. The Cleveland Open will feature 156 golfers competing over 72 holes of stroke play for a purse of $600,000. All four rounds of the tournament will be televised on the Golf Channel. Cooke said this will put the Northeast Ohio on a world stage. "It gives us a chance to tell Cleveland's story to a much wider audience particularly the golf channel audience,” Cooke said. “It's 192 countries and I think we are going to be able to do something’s during the broadcast to show what a great city this is and the great things that have been happening here recently." ....................... The Cleveland Open will be hosted and organized by the Greater Cleveland Sports Commission, partnering with Milestone Sports Management of Westlake. “We really are becoming one of the top cities in this country for the hosting of major events and this will certainly rise to the top of this list,” said David Gilbert, President and CEO of the Greater Cleveland Sports Commission. http://www.newsnet5.com/sports/recreation-sports/golf/webcom-tour-coming-to-lakewood-country-club-june-5th-8th
