Before I get to our first reader giveaway, a couple blog-keeping items…
Head on over to the fantastic Cleveland Food and Brews blog to read my review of Sokolowski’s. While you’re there, enter to win a $25 or $50 Restaurant.com gift card!
Also, check out today’s NE Ohio Food & Drink Daily, featuring this blog, as well as Healthy Heddleston, Cleveland Food and Brews, and Hungry in Cleveland. If you’re not already reading this, you should be!
Now…it’s Reader Giveaway Time! I love the readers here at Why CLE?, so I wanted to do something for all of you. I was contacted by Jane Lassar of Gray & Company Publishers, who publish CLE books. She sent me two copies of this fabulous book – “Cleveland Ethnic Eats.”
Now in it’s 8th edition, “Cleveland Ethnic Eats” covers the entire CLE metropolitan area. The restaurants are organized by ethnicity – from Mediterranean to Middle Eastern to Eastern and Western European to Latin American.
You’ll never be at a loss for where to go the next time you’re craving anything from garlic nan to pierogies. The book also includes the history of each restaurant and helpful info such as dress code, cost, and hours of operation. I used the book to help me out on the history of Sokolowski’s for this past weekend’s post and I’ll certainly be using it in my further explorations of CLE’s ethnic food scene.
So, do you want to start your own CLE food world tour? Here’s how to enter to win. Each number must have it’s own separate comment. You have until Friday, February 11 at 11:59pm to enter. Random.org will select a winner from the comments.
