Hannah HinesI met the delightful and well-known Instagram and TikTok personality Hannah Hines on West 29th Street in Cleveland. Since relocating to Cleveland more than four years ago, Hannah has maintained a die-hard dedication to covering the city's cultural life and fashion scene. She is also a DJ at Mahall’s in Lakewood, where she hosts themed dance parties. As if that weren't impressive enough, Hannah also holds a full-time marketing position in town.
Ice or Rice CafeI had the pleasure of visiting Ice or Rice Cafe at 3713 Payne Avenue, Cleveland, and speaking with husband-and-wife co-owners Rachel He and Brian Ng. The food at Ice or Rice Cafe was truly exceptional. I tried the traditional musubi and the okonomiyaki — a delicious cabbage pancake. It's fantastic to see a place in Cleveland serving new and unique culinary offerings.
FrankieLynn Hot Dogs
Old Brooklyn resident Rachel Ventura started FrankieLynn Hot Dogs just over a year ago. The day I visited, Ventura was dishing out amazing dogs at the West Park Farmers Market. I was even more impressed after taking my first bite — it was the best hot dog I've had in Cleveland since Steve's Hot Dogs closed.
