West Side Market

The next morning we visited the West Side Market. It's an amazing 100 year old public market in a beautiful old building in Ohio City, right across from downtown. I have gone here before - the produce prices are dirt cheap and there is a mix of local stuff if you look for it.

They also have a huge atrium full of meats, cheeses, prepared foods and pretty much every type of food you can imagine. It gets so crowded. The Broadway Market wishes it could be this

We all waited an hour in line for these crepes from this place called Crepes De Lux. The owner is a salty man who yelled at me because he thought I was taking his picture. I actually didn't get one now but I wish I did, because I now call him a crepeist. I almost thought he was gonna go soup Nazi on us and refuse to give us our food.

Sarah and I got the dried strawberries I used to be obsessed with. I never noticed before but there's crystals of sugar on the outside - is it from the dehydration or do they add more on for some reason?

Visit to Cleveland

We drove down to Cleveland last weekend for my best college friend Sarah's (aka Horse/arse/face) white coat ceremony at med school. It sounds random but I promised her at some point during undergrad that I would make it if she went to Case Med school.

We stayed in a super swank hotel called the Intercontinental. It was so fance I had a minor panic attack checking in. It was attached to the Cleveland Clinic which squicks me out. Everyone from around the world flies in to get their strange ailments cured.

On the way down I accidently got off in the rough Hough neighborhood while we were running out of gas, right north of the Cleveland Clinic. It was a bad intro to Cleveland for (e:paul) and (e:terry). To be fair I almost never went to or around Cleveland in a car.

You know you're at a hospital when:

Euclid Avenue Healthline below and Clinic land as far as the eye can see.

Afterwards, we took a Lyft to Ohio City - sort of Allentown but a little more big city - to meet up with Sarah and her classmates. We ate delicious food at the Bier Markt, and then met them at a Bar called Town Hall. Previous to this I only had been to one place in Ohio City, and felt scammed because I had to pay $4 for a beer. Everything seemed way too expensive then.

All the Clevelanders seem to use Uber and Lyft. We used them too - I like the transit much more but we had so little time. Cleveland has three train lines that run through it, and two 24 hour bus rapid transit lines.

I split off with Paul and Terry when they went to some gay bar called the Leather Stallion. Sarah sat in her bed until 5 am talking like we used to.

Permanent graffiti


and temporarily back on (e:strip) because I found an old battery charger!

They've been cleaning the Red Jacket apartment building. Part of it was trying to clean the graffiti off by putting a paste on and power washing it off - they inadvertantly etched it in forever. I bet the original taggers would have never expected.

Hopefully pee alley's smell isn't forever enshrined too?

Disconnected

I have so much to post on (e:strip) but my phone is dead as a doornail.

It's a Galaxy Note 3 that I inherited from (e:paul). It's experienced a lot such as (e:paul) dropping it on the floor (e:paul,59449) and maybe getting too steamy in the bathroom from the shower.

Now it won't charge. We had a battery charger but it got left behind in Cleveland. For 4 months now I've held out from using the phone upgrade we have because a Note 4 costs $350 - and why should I waste resources getting a new phone when my current one works? At the same time, I freaking hate AT&T getting extra money from the phone subsidy.

Now I can either repair the charging port on the Note 3 for $10, or get a new Note 4 for a ridiculous amount. Just a month away from the 5 coming out

Or I could go full retro and one up (e:paul) with a Commodore phone.

Sometimes it's nice to get away from your phone but currently it's just driving me crazy.

What to do with these first world problems?!

Happy Anniversary

Happy second anniversary to the two (e:strip)pers I love the most - (e:Paul) and (e:terry).

I'm so happy to be a part of your lives. I can't wait to see what's in store for us.

Fourth of July

Crazy trippy fireworks and bike rides, and hilarious conversations with (e:mike). Best fourth in a very long time.

First quarry ride


we took our first ride of the year up to the quarry. The water was pretty chilly but I still had fun. This time we even got to use the trampoline and slide off in the kids corner.

(e:Holly) joined us for the swim too. On the way back we stopped at the Crystal Chandelier in Crystal Beach. The food wasn't too awesome and was also expensive.

On the ride back we denied an old drunk man on the bike path a beer hangout. The combination of the bike path in the dark, fireflies everywhere, and glimpses of fireworks over Buffalo was awesome. I want to live on that path.

Store with windows


I guess the 70s, wild west days of Allen Street are officially gone because they have taken down the metal sheets off the convenience store windows
