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…
