“Nighttown is the real deal. It’s a real joint where, if you were lucky enough to be there, you could have sat in front of the Count Basie Orchestra so close that the trombone would’ve bopped you in the nose. Or maybe you saw Freddy Cole, Jane Monheit, John Pizzarelli, Brian Auger, Ann Hampton Callaway, Tommy Tune, Basia, Cyrille Aimee, Esperanza Spaulding, Dick Cavett, Dick Gregory, Eliane Elias, Renee Rosnes, Stevie Wonder or John Legend look you right in the eye as they sang or spoke from just a few feet away. ”

“The Cleveland Orchestra is world-class. You will blown away if you go to hear them play. They tour other continents on a regular basis. Cleveland has some of the finest musicians in the entire world. (No, I am entirely serious!) If you can't catch a concert, still take the time to view this amazing building, inside and out. That trip, in itself, is worth your time. ”

“L'Abatrose by Zack Bruell is a French themed restaurant. The bouillabaisse is amazing, and it comes ceremoniously in a tagine. Duck Confit and Cassoulet are rustic and indulgent enough to be shared by two. Sit outdoor or inside by the fireplace. It's in the University Circle, the cultural and intellectual area of Cleveland with the Cleveland Museum of the Arts, the Botanical Garden, several universities, and the University Hospital. The Cleveland Clinic main campus is not too far, and it has an impressive art collection open to public via a self guided tour.”
