What to Do !

OK boys & girls we're two weeks from the opener in CLE. IMHO here are the MUST DO’s if you’re coming in for the game. In no particular order;
Eat, Drink, & Be Merry
Ohio City / Brewery District / West Side Market – if you want to really understand the CLE, you must get there. I’d recommend breakfast or lunch from one of the inside vendors. Also, if you’re going to tailgate load-up on your provisions. Whatever you get was probably in a field earlier in the week.

Downtown – par’tay, par’tay, par’tay!!!

The CLE’s food scene really world class, so don’t be afraid to have an adventurous pallet.
There’s also Tremont;

The Tribe is in town and they will most likely still be in the playoff hunt. Parking will all but non-existent all weekend. My advice use RTA. $5 gets you an all-day pass and saves you worry, hassle, and aggravation. Virtually all the areas are a short walk for an RTA rail station.

Out & About
Take break and get out and enjoy life on Lake Erie with the family;

That about covers the days before the game. I’ll post the game day do’s & don’ts later. Any specifics or more info, send me a PM.

A word of warning; Browns fans WILL be rowdy .Unlike the S FL media, CLE media has been proclaiming that the Browns are born again hard. Never mind the injuries and suspensions. This is the season they make the move out of the AFC North basement and Phins are going to be the first trophy on the wall. Keep in mind something’s gotta give; the Browns are 1-13 in opening games, including 12 at home. The Phins have not beaten the Browns in CLE since their resurrection.

East 4th st is a blast. Last year a bunch of Dolphin fans hung out at Cadillac Ranch which I believe is no longer there. So the wife and I will be partying on E4th and possibly dropping in the Horseshoe Casino for a bit.

Templarwd, a couple questions. I'll be driving up from WV on Sunday morning with my young son. I plan on riding the RTA Green Line from one of the last 2 stops at the end of the line. We'll probably get off at Tower City and walk to the stadium to take in some of the city and lake scenery before going into the stadium at 11. After the game, how long does it take to get onto the RTA? Would I be better walking to Tower City to catch the Green Line back, or just get it from the stadium? Also, we're sitting near the Fins tunnel. Is it pretty easy to get autographs?

If you take RTA you can take the Waterfront line all the way to the stadium. A $5 day pass is good on any line, anytime until 3 the following AM. RTA will hinge on the score. If the Browns are getting stomped (let's hope) you won't have to wait long < 20min.

Not sure about autographs.

I'd reccommend the brunch at the Hard Rock. It's pricey ($19 adults $10 kids < 10) but excellent. And it's pretty family friendly. I'd also stay clear of W 6th St and the Muni lots wearing opposing gear, with a kid in tow.

Thanks for the suggestions. We'll be dressed like Richie....Incognito. I know most of the fans are great, but it only takes that one jackass. I'll save my gear for my first game in Miami, hopefully next year. Or the Super Bowl :)
