City Notes

  • I was talking with an employee at the Steelyard Best Buy over the weekend and was told that they’re doing much worse than corporate had set for them, about $10k-less-than-estimate-per-week it sounded like. I was also told that other businesses down there are hurting too, they’re all waiting for Wal-Mart to open in the hopes that business will spike then. It is pretty bad when my purchase likely accounted for 1/7th of their Sunday business.
  • I’ve called the Cleveland Green Building Coalition three times about getting information on greening my home and haven’t heard back once.
  • My Collinwood Drumline video keeps getting comments from Collinwood youth. I think it means a lot to them to see one of their sources of pride out there on the Internet, posted by a stranger.
  • I finally met someone from the Greater Cleveland area who is just as geeked up about living in Cleveland as I am. That says something, but I’m not sure what.
  • Whiskey Island is a great place, and I’m actually glad it is a bit hard to access. I want to spend a day there hanging out and tossing a ‘bee around. Especially with a dog. Or a girl, I suppose.
  • I must find taro in the area before Wednesday.

  1. I’ve found dried Taro Root powder at the co-op/ nature’s bin type stores to use as a non-gluten/non-gelatin soup thickener. I have never looked for fresh root, though. Good luck.

  2. I’ll try at the Asian Market in St. Clair/Superior…if they don’t have it, it probably can’t be found in Cleveland. I need it for a sugar-free dessert recipe I’m going to try.

  3. I haven’t seen it at the WSM [doesn’t mean it isn’t there…] Tink Holl is where I’m headed after work. I couldn’t remember what it was called. There’s another market or two over that way…
