Plenty of Food For Thought In Cleveland, GOP,
If You Know Where to Look

SlymansPlain Dealer Columnist Philip Morris' told the GOP where they should go while in Greater Cleveland. One of his recommendations was Nighttown:

"Perhaps the most eclectic and interesting restaurant in town. Republicans can gain street cred by visiting, because it's in the Democratic stronghold of Cleveland Heights. They'll also have a good time there."

Thanks, Philip !!
