These days there are rarely any big surprises in sports. There are favorites and underdogs, and while there are upsets on the field or court every so often, in the long run the teams with the best ownership, management, and resources generally win. Sports fans in Cleveland know this all too well given our teams’ lack of championships in their respective sports. Additionally, we’ve had to watch legends like Jim Thome, Manny Ramirez, and LeBron…

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.

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.

Photo of the Week: Rocks at Edgewater Park

Imagine crashing waves, a warm breeze and toasty hot sand. These images probably invoke an image of a tropical vacation, but in this case I’m referring to our very own Edgewater Park beach in Cleveland. Sure, it’s not exactly a tropical bliss — the strange amount of trash, questionable water quality, and lack of seashells reminds us that we’re up north and not near the equator. But Edgewater Park has a truly enjoyable and aesthetically…
