Episode 24: New Fat Head’s Facility, CLE Metroparks, and Ugly MLB Jerseys

In our latest episode, we dive right into a debate Jordan and Dan have been hashing out on Twitter: are the MLB’s “Player’s Weekend” jerseys and hats ugly? Jordan thinks so, but Dan thinks otherwise…let us know your thoughts. After that, Dan and Jordan (Jimmy was out for this week) review the new Fat Head’s beer hall and production facility in Middleburg Heights. The LOTL crew stopped by the 75,000 sq. ft. facility earlier in…

Hangout of the Week: The New Fat Head’s Beer Hall

After months of anticipation, Fat Head’s brand new, massive beer hall has finally opened on 17450 Engle Lake Dr in Middleburg Heights. With 75,000 square feet of room, this facility has plenty of room for even the biggest parties or the busiest nights. Anyone from Cleveland knows that Fat Head’s is an extremely popular brewery and restaurant, and even with all that extra space, the facility was still very packed (wait times of up to…

Hangout of the Week: Terrestrial Brewing Company

As much as I love Edgewater Park in Cleveland, I’ve long bemoaned the fact it isn’t walking distance to any places to eat or drink. That changed, however, when Terrestrial Brewing Company (7524 Father Frascati Drive) in Battery Park opened its doors last year. The brewery, famous for its wacky beers, is about a five-minute walk from the beach if you take the tunnel behind the new beach house. Housed in an old battery factory…

Hangout of the Week: The Feast of the Assumption (Little Italy)

It’s Cleveland, it’s the middle of August, and Labor Day is right around the corner. That means that it’s time for The Feast of the Assumption in Little Italy on Murray Hill. A CLE tradition unlike any other, the Feast, which has been going on for 120 years, shuts down an entire street for a four-day festival to celebrate the Assumption of the Virgin Mary into heaven. This is a Catholic tradition and is celebrated…

Picture of the Week: Great Lakes Brewery Tour

This past weekend, part of the LOTL crew went out to iconic Great Lakes Brewing Company in Ohio city for their brewery tour. The tour is quite a deal: for only $5, you get a one-hour tour and four 7-oz samples of beer fresh from the tap. But for me, the most impressive part of the tour was the content. Some brewery tours focus exclusively on the science and process of making beer, then you get…

LOTL Sports Take – 8/10/18 – Browns First Preseason Game

Well here we go, Cleveland — it’s finally time to start playing games against other teams. In the grand scheme of things, the outcome doesn’t matter, but there were so many story lines and tidbits that came out of last night’s game. Let’s start with the quarterbacks. How refreshing is it to see the Browns have an actual, competent quarterback play? And I’m not even talking about the no. 1 pick Baker Mayfield — I’m…

Picture of the Week: Blossom Music Center

There’s something exciting about getting thousands of people together on the side of a hill for one single purpose: to enjoy great music with great friends. As I looked out around the grounds of Blossom Music Center last night (8/2/18) for the Zac Brown Band concert, I was moved by how many strangers I saw embracing, laughing and sharing food and drinks like you’d never see in normal life. We saw this behavior at our tailgate,…
