A few weeks ago, I visited another small mid-western city – Cleveland. I’ll be honest, other than Hot in Cleveland I had no further reference to this town. Nor did I really care. And I think this is a shared sentiment among my fellow Chicagoans. No offense Cle. Besides passionate sports fans and nice people, I didn’t hold further expectations. So, I hopped on the megabus and made the trip. What I found was a smaller version of Chicago sans the cosmopolitan element or the pretension. It was refreshing!
