Music Box Supper Club to Launch New Cleveland Stories Dinner Party Series in February


Starting next month, the Music Box Supper Club will launch Cleveland Stories Dinner Party, a new weekly series that pairs fine food with storytelling. The series aims to help raise awareness of the mission of the Western Reserve Historical Society’s new Cleveland History Center.

The club’s owners consider the Cleveland History Center to be “one of the most interesting museums in Cleveland” and “an unknown gem that Clevelanders should know more about and support.” The goal of the Cleveland Stories Dinner Party is to “bring to life some of the fun, interesting stories about Cleveland’s past – from sports, to rock ‘n roll, to Millionaire’s Row,” as it’s put in a press release.

Each week will feature a guest speaker and a custom Prix Fixe menu – a full three course meal for only $20. The weekly series will be free to attend. There will be no cover charge. Dinner will be served at 6 p.m., and the storytelling will start at 7:30 pm. The series kicks off on Feb. 17 with Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum CEO Greg Harris. The three-course meal offered for his session is shroom soup, pot roast and cosmic brownie Sunday.

Cleveland historian Dan Ruminski will speak on Feb. 24. In his talk, he aims to “reveal the secrets of “the vixens of Millionaire’s Row, the rich men and their wild women.” The three-course meal available during this session includes a gold beet salad, black pearl pork chop and Rockefeller cooler. Then, on March 2, sports writer Dan Coughlin will divulge the secrets of the clubhouse. For this night, popcorn bisque, kielbasa polish boy and fries, and a banana split will be the featured three-course dinner for the evening.
