MEET THE BAND: James Douglas (guitar, vocals), Brandon Lichtinger (guitar), Rob Carter (bass), Mark Bradbourne (drums) OBSESSED WITH MUSIC FROM AN EARLY AGE: Local singer-songwriter James Douglas started playing guitar when he was only 5. “I then started writing songs when I was 9, and I haven’t stopped,” he says....

Savage Love: Kink Monsters | Savage Love | Cleveland

ClevelandScene
My husband and I (straight male/bi female couple) have been married 15 years. We are in our early 40s. When we met, he was inexperienced and crippled by shame from having grown up in an extremely sex-negative atmosphere. I have no hang-ups about sex and was happy to get him...

‘Atlantics’ Tells An Urgent Story of Love and Ghosts | Film Features | Cleveland

ClevelandScene
The French-Senegalese director Mati Diop’s debut film Atlantics is one of the more original and surprising films of the year. Though it begins as a conventional third-world realist drama — construction workers in Dakar, Senegal, without wages for months, flee by boat to Spain to seek a better life —...

Clint Eastwood Takes the Mass Media to Task With ‘Richard Jewell’ | Film Features | Cleveland

ClevelandScene
Director Clint Eastwood has said that his interest in the story of Richard Jewell, the security guard falsely accused of planting a bomb at Centennial Park in Atlanta during the 1996 Olympics, stems from the fact that it’s a “great American tragedy.” That might well be, but despite a great...

ClevelandScene

Dobama’s ‘The Old Man and The Old Moon’ Changes How You View That Orb in the Sky | Theater | Cleveland

ClevelandScene
Like magicians, many theater creatives have mastered the art of illusion. You’ll see productions where clever trickery with light, special effects and design create near-impossible imagery that makes you wonder, “How the hell did they do that?” This isn’t a question you’ll be asking yourself after attending Dobama Theatre’s production...

Blank Canvas’ ‘Yippee Ki-Yay’ Subverts Parody, Offers Hilarious Holiday Hijinks | Theater | Cleveland

ClevelandScene
The debate is finally over. Die Hard is a Christmas movie, and it’s gotten the holiday treatment. Chicago’s greatest theatrical import has come to Cleveland with Blank Canvas’ regional premiere of Yippee Ki-Yay, Merry Christmas, a musical parody more baked than a fresh batch of gingerbread men and wrapped in...

Il Venetian’s Stellar Service and Solid Execution Matches Its Big Price Point | Dining Lead | Cleveland

ClevelandScene
I’ve never eaten in an executive dining room, those sumptuous corporate sanctuaries reserved for top-rung employees, but after a few meals at Il Venetian, I can now imagine what the experience must be like. Outside, passersby trudge anxiously to awaiting court dates at the Justice Center. But on this side...

Spring Pea Toast at Michael’s Genuine There was no better expression of the season than the spring pea toast dished up at Michael’s Genuine. Atop a shingle of hearty toast sat light-as-air layers of minty mashed peas and fluffy burrata. Strategically placed slivers of radish bring crunch to every bite,...

Buy, Sell, Hold: The Cleveland Dining Trends We Love, Hate and Long For | Flavor | Cleveland

ClevelandScene
In years past, we’ve lamented the rise of sheet pan plates, prayed for more Filipino food, and tried to put the brakes on hot dogs, tacos, gas-station hummus, and egg-topped everything. We’ve welcomed delicious trends like bubble tea, poutine, Nashville hot chicken and real-deal barbecue. We still desire more natural...

10 Cleveland Sandwiches We Love… Like, Really Love | Flavor | Cleveland

ClevelandScene
While tacos get all the attention, it’s sandwiches that fuel the world. Here in Cleveland, we have an embarrassment of riches when it comes to classics, originals and over-the-top creations. Anything goes in the world of sammies as long as the results are delicious. We think these 10 are worth...

Where We Celebrate Now: Cleveland’s Special Places for Special Times | Flavor | Cleveland

ClevelandScene
The term “special-occasion restaurant” is both a blessing and a curse. While it’s nice to know that diners value your establishment enough to entrust it with their most momentous milestones, it would also be nice if they popped by a little more often. Some places, like those listed here, have...

The Best New Restaurants in Cleveland of the Past Five Years | Flavor | Cleveland

At the tail end of 2014, I composed for this very magazine my annual look-ahead at the year in food. Back then, Cleveland diners were eagerly awaiting the arrival of such places as Alley Cat, Graffiti, Citizen Pie, Batuqui, M Italian and any number of gratuitous Crop Bistro spin-offs. In...

How Four Long-Standing Cleveland Restaurants Have Adapted to the Times and Survived for Decades | Flavor | Cleveland

ClevelandScene
When the building that currently houses Don’s Lighthouse Grille was constructed, Edgewater Park stretched all the way up to the front door. With no Memorial Shoreway to dodge, beachgoers would walk right up to the impressive three-story edifice to purchase taffy, hot dogs, barbecue and ice-cold Coca-Cola. That building is...
