Greetings fellow Centralites. Porco Lounge and Tiki Room has been nominated in our city for "Best Trendy Bar", and I'm here to humbly ask for your support. While what we're building here is something we hope will be more than just a "trend", these types of contests provide us with much free exposure and continued advertising.

It has been a pleasure to not only build our bar with the help of fellow t.c.'rs, but to host a handful of you in the past months. If you could take a minute to cast your vote for us, it would mean the world.

You can simply log in using your facebook, twitter, yahoo, google, etc...account to cast your vote, and any support or sharing would be much appreciated.

Thanks for your support, and thanks for being here as the greatest source of information and inspiration for all things tiki!

cheers!

Best of Cleveland?

An oxymoron (plural oxymora or oxymorons) (from Greek ὀ, "sharp dull") is a figure of speech that juxtaposes apparently contradictory elements (it is not however a contradiction in terms (see below)). Oxymora appear in a variety of contexts, including inadvertent errors such as ground pilot and literary oxymorons crafted to reveal a paradox.

I do wish you luck Porco.
Have not been there yet.

Have not been to Cleveland since the World Series of Rock 1979.
Just found out that was #9 of the top 10 ROCK CONCERTS WHICH RESULTED IN BLOODSHED.
http://www.socialsciencecareers.org/10-rock-concerts-which-resulted-in-bloodshed/

I was kind of joking at first, then I looked up Cleveland and found they were #9 of the
America's 10 Deadliest Cities 2012 list, and moved up to #8 in 2013.
You go Cleveland.

Cleveland has seen its fair share of violence and 2012 was no exception. The murder rate climbed from 75 in 2011 to 97 in 2012, or 24.6 murders for every 100,000 citizens. Despite the increased number of homicides, Cleveland Police Chief Michael McGrath says he doesnt think policies need to be changed and stresses the importance of community involvement in lowering the crime rate. According to the Census Bureau, nearly 33% of Clevelands population is living below the poverty line, whereas the average for the state is 14.8%

So like every 3 or 4 days someone gets it.

Man I thought Columbus sucked.

Ha! maybe Porco could have their logo put on Bulletproof vests.
Anthony Bourdain Did go to Cleveland and hit a few spots that looked good,
an old meat shop and some polish joint.
BUT.. it was cold and grey when he was there.

"What is a "Cleveland"?"

It's the second largest city in this frozen crap berg called Ohio.

Maybe a tiki Crime Scene Clean-Up business would do well there.
You could wear a coconut bra and grass skirt while you mop up some crack dealers brains.

It may be time for a new Police Chief Cleveland.

Thanks all for the support! Every vote counts, and we sincerely appreciate those making the effort on our behalf.

As far as "Cleveland" is concerned, I rarely get worked up over forum piss taking and ribbing, it's all good. I love the city, my neighborhood, etc...the media does a fine job into spooking people out with statistics and whatnot, but we really do have some fantastic things taking place here.

My standard primer for folks coming into cleveland is the following:

Thanks again all for the support!
