Similar to our impressive turn-of-the-century mayor, you understand what makes this city tick. You shop local at the West Side Market, play in our parks and picnic at the Mall (all Johnson accomplishments). Approach Case Western Reserve University's continuing education program and offer to teach an eight-week course.
Dorothy Fuldheim(100-120 points)
Like the city, the nation's first female TV news analyst was strong, resilient and progressive. There's nothing this redhead couldn't do, whether kicking activist Jerry Rubin off her stage or interviewing Adolf Hitler. Join the City Club of Cleveland ($100 member fee), where you can engage leaders in lively debate about the city's future.
Michael Symon(70-90 points)
Akin to our culinary ambassador, you appreciate our culture's ethnic roots and know where to send a newbie for the perfect meal. Expand your tastes with the Western Reserve Historical Society's Remarkable Clevelanders class ($130), where you can study Eliot Ness, Garrett Morgan and Allen E. Cole.
Moses Cleaveland(40-60 points)
Just like Cleaveland, who founded the city and split, you might be overestimating your importance, err, knowledge. Brush up on what you don't know - such as the geography of the West Side's Ohio City and Gordon Square, or downtown - with a guided bike tour ($27) through Bob's Bikes.
Johnny Manziel(0-30 points)
You're new to town, as is Johnny Football, and still not sure why we're so obsessed with pierogies or the St. Edward vs. St. Ignatius rivalry. But you can be more responsible than our rowdy backup Browns quarterback. Take a free tour of the Great Lakes Brewing Co., soak up some local knowledge and a few brews. Then take a cab home.
