Forget rib burns, parades, fireworks, and all the other PR claptrap. The No. 1 summer recreational activity in this city is drinking. Two-fisted, bang 'em back, balls-to-the-wall-style drinking, befitting a hardcore industrial town.
Let others offer excuses, apologies, MADD mothers wagging their fingers. We love drinking! We celebrate it in all its forms, from that first taste after a hard week of Working For The Man to the cool, cool feel of the bathroom tile against your cheek at 3:00 in the morning.
Drink with gusto, drink with style, drink above all like you're from Cleveland.
Just don't embarrass yourself.
