Downtown Cleveland is teeming with Indians, Tigers, Cavaliers and Pistons fans.
Our hotel has a '50 Paces From the Bases' promo that somehow was not offered to us...Free Parking, 2 bags of peanuts and Free Breakfast. Needless to say, it's a full house.
Anyway, before checking in, we stopped by the West Side Market, Ohio's oldest operating indoor/outdoor market (it opened on Halloween in 1912). Look for the Neo-Classical/Byzantine-style clock tower and building. We had a brat sandwich, an Italian sausage sandwich, a Johnny's hot dog, and some ice-cream. We also bought Ballpark Mustard.
If we had a bigger cooler and/or it wasn't so hot, we could have bought fruit and vegetables and meat and cheese and sauerkraut and pierogies and and and.
