Read up on GeekCLE, Every Bar in Lakewood’s Doctor Who Watch Party, as well as more CLE blogger goodness in this edition of Clue Into Cleveland Blogs
It’s been awhile since I’ve had time to do a Cleveland blogs round-up. However, there have been a more than a few recent posts and new-to-me blogs that needed to be shared:
Clue Into Cleveland Blogs, Snow Day Edition
#1 GeekCLE is your guide to geek culture in Cleveland – from info on local arcades and comic book shops to forums discussing the X-Men and tabletop gaming. Check out their list of Free Upcoming GeekCLE Events, including a Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Party at Mahall’s.
#2 Reading about the Doctor Who Watch Party led me to the blog that’s hosting the event - Every Bar in Lakewood. Every Bar in Lakewood is exactly what it sounds like — one guy’s journey to visit every bar in Lakewood. I’m late to the game on this blog as his most recent review is Bar #49 - Johnny Malloy’s; however, I’ve been catching up on his other posts where you’ll also find info on Lakewood events.
Update: After removing pingbacks and duplicate entries, congratulations to entry 16, amanda @minky80.
Compassion from Fashion, Nov. 23 to benefit The Gathering Place and University Hospitals (UH) Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital.
Last June I ran my first Race for the Place 5K, a fundraiser for The Gathering Place. From support groups and nutrition classes to medical libraries and their HairPeace Wig Salons, The Gathering Place provides programs for anyone affected by cancer in Greater Cleveland.
I ran it for my dad, who beat melanoma and two rounds of lymphoma with a smile on his face and strength that continues to amaze me.

On Saturday, November 23, you’ll have the chance to support The Gathering Place’s mission — and you don’t need to lace up a pair of sneakers to do it.
Grab a seat at the Katz Club counter for a better diner experience
Growing up in South Jersey, the classic diner was a way of life for Scott, and while attending college in Philly, they quickly became my primary source of food throughout the week.
Pulling up a stool at the counter for some quick breakfast or grabbing a corner table for midnight dinner with friends — there are few restaurant experiences that instill comfort in me the way a diner does.
Since moving to Cleveland, I’ve missed the Llanerch, Melrose and Harvest diners of the old days. Fortunately, the Katz Club Diner in Cleveland Heights has come to my rescue.
Located in the old Dottie’s space, Katz Club Diner embraces the roots of the two classic Pullman diner cars it calls home. The cars, which originally came here from Pennsylvania and New Jersey, house a 48-seat diner, a quick service carry-out coffee and bake shop, and a late-night bar car offering craft cocktails, beer, wine, spirits, and appetizers.
