The HISTORIC wooden street of Cleveland: Hessler Crt.

There exists a street in Ohio that is as interesting as the history of Millionaire’s Row. Some streets of myth are paved in gold, some in silver, some with yellow brick, however we have one in Ohio that is paved in wood- Norfolk Pine to be exact and it is masterfully laid.

The street is laid using the same method that the brick rounds were, tile by tile meticulously placed and leveled so that the traveler has an easy trip.

It is beautiful and intricate nestled in a cozy little cul de sac that you would miss even if you were looking for it. (It’s the shortest street in Cleveland at 300 feet) I suppose that’s part of the intrigue.

The interesting part is that at one time the whole street was paved in pine. The cost of that today would be astronomical although worth it because it has stood the test of time..it was constructed in 1920. Sure, it has shown wear but wouldn’t you?

Ohio’s own Lebron James is going to Cali and I’m not angry

I don’t know where these out of town news outlets are getting their information about the exit of Lebron James and that Ohioans are angry. We’re not. In fact, everyone that I’ve spoken with is nothing short of supportive. We wish the best for him. He paid his dues in Ohio, even came back to do it. He owes us nothing because he’s already given us so much; notoriety, back to back finals and a championship, he was even an encouragement to the Cleveland baseball team. So, we’re not angry, he even has the
Cavs band-wagoner’s cheering for him.

We wish you the best Lebron and thank you for the memories. Although you will reside in California, you will always belong to Ohio.

Designed with Bermuda in mind

Upon designing these earrings it reminded me of the crystal clear and blue waters of Bermuda; beautiful, sparkling, warm and inviting. These beautiful and elegant earrings reflect colors of blue and green, there is just something about these colors that reminds me of a getaway vacation in a faraway location.

Of course the components are gold filled so they won’t change colors (ever) and the stone of choice is crystal-Swarovski Crystal. They are short dangle earrings for pierced ears. The shape of the crystal is now archived so they aren’t likely to be found anywhere else.

TOM FORD Vegas is like a walk in closet

                                            I don’t pop molly I rock Tom Ford

                                           Tom Ford is one of my favorite designers

If you haven’t had the chance to visit the Tom Ford store on the Vegas strip in Nevada, it should definitely be on your to-do list. The store is well put together on the outside and is quite the experience on the inside.

The store is like a tunnel with three layers. As you walk into the store you enter the men’s section, which I have to be honest I didn’t look twice at because I was so enamored with the way that the inside was built. The mid portion of the store is reserved for the variety of scents that Tom Ford has to offer, and finally the last layer, the back is where the women’s clothing is housed.

The store is eloquent, like the walk in closet that you’ve always wanted. The staff is very friendly and attentive (not in an intrusive way) and there is a bigger selection of clothing then what you may see online.

We are not allowed to film inside of the store, but before I was informed of this I got a small snippet on video that you can view here.

Town Hall on W. 25th IS the Hipster crowd #CLEVELAND

So there’s this spot that I stumbled upon with one of my friends during my lunch break called Town Hall.

Town Hall is hip and current with the menu catering to meat eaters, vegans and anyone in between (like me).

The aesthetic is warm and inviting and the décor looks like a patio. Yes, the décor.

The majority of the walls have brick on them, but there is one accent wall that has grass on it. The chandeliers are rustic and the crowd is alive; you look to the left you may notice a conversation going on, to the right working on their laptops and somewhere in the interim brokering deals. It has its own culture right in the center of Cleveland.

The cost index is about a 3, I would venture into a 4 since I don’t normally spend $20.00 for lunch.

On the flipside the food is good and the menu extensive and tasty. I drank a healthy, collagen infused smoothie and ate vegan tacos, both were fantastic, in addition to the good food and healthy drinks Town Hall also has plethora of alcoholic beverages to choose from and the service is awesome, unbeknownst to me I was sitting right next to the manger. This place is a must visit, if given the opportunity be sure to do so.

Location: 

1909 W 25th St, Cleveland, OH 44113 – It’s open until 2:30 a.m.

“Adidon” Pusha T diss will Drake answer?

Some things are better left alone. Looks like it’s going to be a “Cruel Summer” for Drake.

Pusha T baited Drake with his subtle diss Infrared by playing with his emotions and fanning the flames, but in my opinion he finished him with “The Story of Adidon” The genre of tickle rap is seemingly over, true artists are battling for the crown. I must admit that Drake’s follow up “Duppy” is noteworthy as well, pulling Pusha T in with the jabs at his fiancé and street credibility, but it was lightweight compared to Pusha T’s latest offering.

DRAKE AND PUSHA

If we say it’s old news about Drake allegedly fathering a child of a pornography actress then we have to say it’s old news about Pusha T’s alleged drug selling, but that didn’t stop Drake from bringing it up. For instance did you know about the black face that Drake posed in? I didn’t.

 

This beef is reminiscent get it..of the Remy Ma and Nicki Minaj beef. I for one don’t think Drake can win, on his own anyway, another thing I am tired of these new age rappers trying to come for the age of the veterans. Be careful because seasoned rappers have history on their hands and I think Drake just got a taste of History 101.REMY AND NICKI

 

Until next time,

East Cleveland Ohio’s Philanthropist Walter Melton Sr. #saveoursons

East Cleveland used to be a bustling, sprawling suburb on the east side of Cleveland. There were several legacies founded there; East Cleveland is the home of the first billionaire John D. Rockefeller of Standard Oil, in addition, the homes of Euclid Avenue were once referred to as “Millionaire’s Row” but that was a long time ago, the Great Depression caused the demolition of many of those homes although there are still remnants left of what once was.

Just because East Cleveland used to be a wealthy area doesn’t mean that now that it isn’t, that the residents don’t deserve courtesy and to be surrounded by cleanliness. Enter crusader Walter Melton Sr. Walter Melton has founded an organization called ‘Save Our Sons’ through this organization he is leading a campaign to clean up East Cleveland by not only his works but also by helping to enforce anti littering laws. In his words “he believes in the city, loves it and wants it to be beautified.” He is taking charge.
