We thought we'd list a few of them in case you're thinking of ditching red meat for the fish and chips.
The Lenten season is here a little early this year. That’s welcome news to Lakewood, with residents who cherish the abundant fish fries in the city. The annual tradition begins on Friday. And there’s a new one in town — but it’s also an old one. St. James Catholic Church, reopened in July, is bringing its fish fry back. But the parish is looking for volunteers. Those interested are encouraged to call 216-221-3567. We thought we’d list a few of fish fries in case you’re thinking of ditching red meat for the fish and chips. But, please, if we forgot any, post ‘em in the comments. Around the Corner: 18616-20 Detroit Rd.; 216 521-4413; There's a fish fry every Friday during Lent; choice of Great Lakes Christmas Ale beer batter cod; Lake Erie …

The 2nd annual event benefits Caring Continues Fund and Trinity Lakewood Community Outreach. Oh yeah, it was fun, too!
Live music, cornhole tournament and great food. Entertainment included three live performances at the Rally in the Alley event behind Around the Corner and Dewey's Pizza on Sunday afternoon. If a dunk-tank wasn't enough to draw out the crowds to the second-annual Rally in the Alley, the other attractions sure did.

That’s according to our unscientific poll.
Sullivan’s Irish Pub, at 13368 Madison Avenue, is the best place in Lakewood to spend St. Patrick’s Day. That’s according to you. Earlier this week, we asked where you’d like to spend the annual Irish holiday. It only made sense that an Irish pub — serving up specialty Boxty and Irish-inspired entrees for the Lakewood community for years — would take home the top honors. They've also got a solid selection of Irish beer. Check out the other nominations. If you’re going somewhere else, or you think you’ve got a better pick, post it in the comments. Or, even better, you can find the business in the directory and post a review of your favorite.

Fish fries around town on Friday, and a chili cook-off on Saturday. A Big Chili Cook-Off. There are about 20 chili entries from individuals and organizations competing — with hundreds expected to attend. The event is slated to take place at Around the Corner at 5 p.m. Saturday. Each entrant is obligated to sell 10 passes, said participant and organizer Shawn Juris. Passes are $10 and each participant can cast a vote. The best chili will be decided by a panel of judges that includes Lakewood Mayor Michael Summers and Juris. “This has really been Ryan Krivosh's (co-owner of Around the Corner) project for the past few years and he's been good enough to loop in Pillars as a beneficiary,” Juris said. Proceeds of the event will support …
We thought we’d list a few of them in case you’re thinking of ditching red meat for the fish and chips.
It’s sort of an annual tradition in Lakewood. Lenten fish fries are expected to be the meal of choice for the next several Fridays around town. We thought we’d list a few of them in case you’re thinking of ditching red meat for the fish and chips. But, please, if we forgot any, post ‘em in the comments. Around the Corner: 18616-20 Detroit Rd.; 216 521-4413; There's a fish fry every Friday during Lent; choice of Great Lakes Christmas Ale beer batter cod; Lake Erie perch, haddock; cod, blackened catfish; cabbage and noodles and homemade pierogies. Owner Mickey Krivosh said the fish fries are a big draw. Georgetown: Krivosh, who also owns the Georgetown restaurant around the corner (pun intended), said the restaurant doesn’t necessarily have…

The increasingly popular wing-eating shuffle will feature deep-fried chicken from 11 of Lakewood's bars and restaurants, and is expected to bring in a sell-out crowd of 1,000 people.
Six hours, $15, 44 wings, 11 bars, 1,000 people and one overall winner pretty much sums up the plan for this year's Wing Crawl. This Saturday's event, organized by the Pillars of Lakewood young professionals club, will shuttle partiers around to enjoy 4 wings at each of the 11 locations that span from Around the Corner to Deagan's Kitchen and Bar. "Most of those folks do tend to come in out of the Lakewood area, so it's a good opportunity to show off the city, and shine a spotlight on our restaurants and businesses," Ward 3 City Councilman and co-organizer Shawn Juris said. After attendees sample all the buffalo flavored fare, they'll cast ballots to help determine the deep-fried winner. Celebrity judges from local news and radio stations …

These guys know what it takes to make your old favorites new again.
There are a lot of cover bands gigging around the Cleveland music scene. Without their own original songs each group needs to bring something else to the table to set themselves apart from the pack. Half Moon Jack has taken this to heart, and put an interesting twist on the cover band concept. The first thing anyone will notice is their unorthodox percussion setup. Instead of the expected toms and kick, there are congas and bongos, and a tambourine in the place of a high hat. This switch gives the rhythm a very interesting color without sacrificing much presence and immediately differentiates them from their competition. The result is a fun, laid-back and, at times, ethnic sound that gives you the feeling of being on a vacation. This set …
