True: Roo grew up in “the mistake on the lake.”
Also true: Cleveland has weathered more than its fair share of snickers and sneers. Gay Games 9 arrive in Cleveland next summer, and the tens of thousands of athletes and allies will discover a city that is reinventing itself for a new millennium. Visitors will discover culinary gems from the likes of Michael Symon and Jonathon Sawyer. Art aficionados will relish the collections at the Cleveland Museum of Art and the newly built Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA). But of course, no visit to Cleveland is complete without an obligatory jaunt through the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum.
