Everyone knows Cleveland is full of characters. Now meet a few who were more than willing to passionately defend the best part of The Land.
Who’s to say what’s best when art lies in the eye of the beholder? But Polish Boys versus Browns? Brewnuts versus the Cleveland Museum of Art? Is there really a best part when it comes to debating the great loves of The Land?
Listen, no one said these debates made a whole lot of sense. But, then again, no one said the inherent passion and fervor of Clevelanders everywhere was entirely comprehensible either.
After all, it’s what makes us a city of underdogs, innovators, creative weirdos and pull-yourself-up-by-the-bootstraps types.
So whether it’s watching a drag queen sashay across the stage or listening to a rock legend riff across guitar strings, you’ll find your best in Cleveland — characters included.
That’s because when you’re here, you’re one of us. There’s no debate.
