I'll be paying my first visit to The Jake this weekend for the Saturday and Sunday games. Stopping at Great Lakes Brewing Co. and the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame on the way. Anyone got any suggestions of other stuff to check out along I-90? I'm doing the campy American road trip so any suggestions of roadside crap to check out would be appreciated! See you all at the game.

I'm at Friday's and Saturday's games.

Unless you're a Notre Dame fan, there is nothing between here and there.

In fact there isn't much there, either.

You could look for the LaBron Hall of......oh never mind.....:redneck

The ballpark is nice. Same architects as Comiskey.

It's true, there isn't a lot there. . . Great Lakes Brewery makes excellent beers, but food is just OK in my experience. Warehouse District just north of the Arena is pretty good for pre/post game beverages.

The Flats used to be the place to go but NOBODY goes there anymore, from what I hear its pretty dangerous.

Making my first trip there as well as kind of a graduation reward. Going to Saturday and Sunday's games. I'm a huge foodie and Cleveland actually has some pretty fine dining. Have reservations at Lola, the Greenhouse Tavern, and Momocho. Hoping to try Sawyer's new place, Noodlecat as well.

I'll be making the trip. Haven't been to a game in Cleveland since 1997 I think. It will be interesting to see how it has aged. I really noticed the age in Camden Yards last year.

Mrs. JB and I are going for our first trip to the Jake. Great Lakes is in our vision as is Greenhouse Tavern.

Here's a nice summary of some top Cleveland restaurants...

And I just may have to try a cocktail at Velvet Tango Room.

I was there for opening weekend. Cleveland is pretty unremarkable. The lakefront by the R&R hall of fame is nice. Make sure you eat a polish boy sandwich.

You'll run into alot of *******s if you're in the cheap seats.

Cool, thanks for the tips, all. What is a good (safe, clean, etc.) nightlife area? Looks like 25th street has a lot of nice places.

So I shouldn't buy the $2.50 tickets on stubhub in the upper deck?

Anyone have any ideas as to where the team is staying in Cleveland?

Can't vouch for the accuracy of this one, but the link below references the Ritz Carlton Cleveland...
