Best Barfly

Melinda Urick

In a town with plenty of worthy contenders, Melinda Urick grabs the crown with her hustle and consistency. She shows up at all of Cleveland's best parties, whether it's the opening of a posh new bar, a charity bachelor auction, or a crowded Tribe pre-game. And she brings a 100-watt smile, plenty of sass, and a cadre of wing-girls. Shots? She's having one. A dance floor? She's rocking it. A bull? She's riding it. Then, to top it off, she writes it all down. Urick's blog, "Life, Liberty, and Pursuit of Your Boyfriend," chronicles her life as a single gal in Cleveland, complete with photos. Think Sex and the City meets Panini's.
