Afternoon Brew: Cleveland Museum of Art on the West Side, the Worst Website Wins an Award for Best Website, and a Nintendo Hunt




Good afternoon, Cleveland. Here's some stuff to read while you check your basement for any gold-painted Nintendo games.

— The Cleveland Museum of Art crosses the Cuyahoga to Ohio City with a permanent place to exhibit modern art outside of the CMA itself. Here's to hoping the first pieces shown at the Transformer Station include actual Transformers. (WMMS)

— If you're trying to get away from the cops in a chase, make sure you don't get stuck in traffic. (Morning Journal)

— Speaking of the Morning Journal, it won "Best Website" in the Ohio SPJ awards despite being quite possibly the worst newspaper website in the state. Seriously, at times the pop-up ads feel like a thousand demons coming out of the screen to eat our face. (Morning Journal)

— Not Cleveland, but who the hell cares: The search for the holy grail of Nintendo collecting. (Wired)
