Scott Weiland at The House of Blues Cleveland

Scott Weiland At The House Of Blues in Cleveland, Ohio

I had the opportunity to attend last night’s Scott Weiland show at the House of Blues in Cleveland.  The show was billed as Scott playing the first two Stone Temple Pilots albums in their entirety.  I’m a huge STP fan so I jumped at the chance to see the former front man perform what I consider to be his best work. NOTE: For those of you that don’t know, Weiland was recently dismissed as the … Continue reading

Progressive Field – Baseball & Beer

Progressive Field - Day Game Outfield

It’s been a while since I’ve put together a Beer Shots post though that’s certainly not because I haven’t been taking them.  As I was going through my pics to be added to the site, I realized that I’ve got multiple shots from some of my favorites places – The Annex & The Winking Lizard immediately spring to mind.  With that being said, I made the decision to move away from my normal “one image per … Continue reading

Thomecoming At Progressive Field

Welcome Thome!

My all time favorite baseball player is Jim Thome.  When he left my beloved Cleveland Indians in 2002 it was a very sad day for me.  So when I heard the news the other night that the Indians had claimed him off waivers from the Twins you can imagine how I felt… I wasn’t sure if I was dreaming or not.  I was elated when I woke up the other morning and read the news … Continue reading

Baseball In The Summer

A Day Game From The Upper Deck

I’ve been a baseball fan for as long as I can remember.  There’s something special about going to the ballpark, seeing the green grass, grabbing a cold beer and watching the game. I haven’t been to too many games this year but those that I’ve been to have been glorious! Opening Day in Cleveland is nothing short of a city holiday.  For a city that’s been dragged through the mud for years it always brings … Continue reading

The Weekend That Was: Opening Day & WrestleMania 27

Pip & Chewie At The Indian's Home Opener

Once again this year, Pip made his yearly trek to the Cleveland area for a weekend of reliving memories and debauchery.  This year’s trip happened to coincide with Opening Day for the Indians so we headed down to the stadium to take in a game with my brother Marko and buddy Al.  Pip had never been to the stadium so it was super cool to have a “first timer” there though I can’t say the … Continue reading

A Foggy Day In Cleveland – A Quest For Opening Day

Fog In Cleveland

For the umpteenth year in a row, I’ve decided to go to Opening Day for my beloved Cleveland Indians at Progressive Field.  (Man… it still sounds weird.  It’ll always be Jacob’s Field in my mind).  I decided that I didn’t want to pay the ridiculous “convenience fees” by ordering my tickets online so I made my way downtown to the Progressive Field box office on a VERY foggy day in downtown Cleveland.  It was so … Continue reading
