The Nauti Mermaid, located in Cleveland’s Historic Warehouse District, has a Caribbean-inspired menu that offers a variety of seafood and non-seafood items, along with a top shelf bar, 10 beers on tap, and a well-stocked wine list.
When I started That’s Cleveland Baby I had no intent of turing this into a sports-centric blog. That said, Cleveland revolves around its sports teams so when they’re in the news I feel compelled to cover it.
After the worst start in his career, LeBron James recorded a triple-double with 37 points, 18 rebounds and 13 assists lifting the Cavs to a 3-0 lead in the Eastern Conference Finals over the Atlanta Hawks.
The Cavaliers are back in action tonight at 8:30 at the Q. Let’s go Cavs!!!
As part of the annual Blossom Time festival, Chagrin Falls hosts a hot air balloon night as part of their festivities. We went this year on Sunday night which has become sort of a family tradition. The winds weren’t being cooperative so the balloons didn’t launch, but they inflated them so the fans could see them and take pictures.
Talk about a super cool event to kick off the summer season!
I’m not a huge fan of email forwards, but I got this one over the weekend and had to pass it along. I’m sure you’re familar with Jeff Foxworthy’s “You Might Be A Redneck If” schitick. Here’s a Cleveland version…

If someone in a Home Depot store offers you assistance and they don’t work there, you live in Cleveland

If you’ve had a lengthy telephone conversation with someone who dialed a wrong number, you live in Cleveland
If”Vacation” means going anywhere south of I-80 for the weekend, you live in Cleveland
If you measure distance in hours, you live in Cleveland
If you have switched from “heat” to “A/C” in the same day and back again you live in Cleveland
If you can drive 75 mph through 2 feet of snow during a raging blizzard without flinching, you live in Cleveland

If you design your kid’s Halloween costume to fit over a snowsuit, you live in Cleveland
If the speed limit on the highway is 55 mph — you’re going 80 andeverybody is passing you, you live in Cleveland

If the name ‘Slyman’s’ makes yer mouth water…. you live in Cleveland!
NOTE: I’m not QUITE sure if this can actually be attributed to Foxworthy. The email foward that I received had Slyman’s spelled “Sliman’s” which calls things into question. That said, it’s a pretty accurate list.
