Off The Beaten Path

Yesterday I took a road trip with some friends to Cleveland! It was really fun. We saw Joe Purdy in Concert at the Beachland Lounge in the heart of Cleveland. It was a cute little venue. The seats were good, the company was great and Purdy was fun to see.

But, as usual, I had to take a look around. This venue, the Beachland Lounge, held about 300 people and was connected to a bar. The set up was great for a small band and even the bathrooms were decent. My favorite part of the trip was Melt Bar and Grilled in Cleveland Heights. It was a cute bar that we found on Man vs. Food. Adam of course was challenged with eating a 5lb grilled cheese. None of us attempted that but the place was amazing.

Melt Bar and Grilled is a Grilled Cheese place. Every grilled cheese you could think of was there. You could even create your own. It was a really unique place to start the evening off. It had over 50 different kind of beers and sandwiches. Beware the hot peppers are more than just hot!!

So if you are ever in Cleveland and need a unique place to visit I would give it a try. Check them out at
