Brian RosenBrian Rosen Brian is a YP who knows and loves the food scene. He writes all sorts of tidbits for our blogs, but food is his passion. Can you blame him?

If you could design your perfect Cleveland evening, what would you do? The evening would begin at the Gateway Winking Lizard for a snack and libation and then a Bone Thugs-N-Harmony concert at House of Blues. After enjoying a stop at the best bar in Cleveland and watching the greatest Hip-Hop group of all-time, the evening would culminate at The Greenhouse Tavern for their insanely tasty late night menu which would stay open later than usual due to me hypothetically becoming friends with the great Jonathon Sawyer. Ladies, if this evening sounds remotely entertaining for you, than I am all yours! 

East Side or West Side and why? I grew up on the East Side but I'm not afraid to admit that the West Side is the best side. It comes down to better areas to hang out for a YP (downtown Lakewood, Tremont, Ohio City) and better food (Tremont is the best stretch of restaurants in the state). 

If you could attend one of the following, which one would you choose: 50-yard-line seats at the Browns game with Bernie Kosar, dinner with your favorite Cleveland chef at his or her restaurant (and which chef and restaurant), or tickets and a backstage pass to see Machine Gun Kelly at his next Cleveland concert? As much as I respect Bernie and MGK putting it on for Cleveland 24/7 and 365, I gotta go with Zach Bruell at Parallax. I love music and really love sports but great food trumps both any day of the week!

What is your favorite Cleveland hidden gem? Growing up on the East Side, I never spent any time in the Flats but now that I have been able to explore a little more, I love Merwin's Wharf on the West Bank. It's the perfect place to go in the summer to enjoy a view of the Cuyahoga River with a nice cold craft beer.

If you played for the Indians, what would be your walkup song? "Cleveland is the City" by Bone Thugs-N-Harmony would sound so sweet before my three-pitch strikeout!
