USA Today's Pop Traveler just unveiled "11 Reasons to Visit Cleveland."
The list was actually written by a Clevelander, Big Business (or Chris M.), who claims he's "not a storyteller, humorist, columnist, musician, satirist, or radio personality."
Many of the usual suspects show up, including the Beachland, West Side Market, and Big Fun. No arguments there.
And we're all for left-field picks like the Burning River Roller Girls and Chucklefck.
Still, when it comes to what Cleveland does best — that would be food and music — it would be nice to acknowledge a chef who actually gives a shit about vegetarians and an artist who has more talent for landing in jail than rhyming.
Here's the list, if you don't feel like reading the whole thing:
1. Michael Symon restaurants
2. Beachland Ballroom
3. The Christmas Story house
4. West Side Market
5. Big Fun
6. Rock and Roll Hall of Fame
7. Cedar Lee Theatre
8. Burning River Roller Girls
9. Chucklefck comedy nights
10. Stadium Mustard
11. Machine Gun Kelly
The dude who wrote the thing also gave a shout-out to this cool art collection.
