Local Events & Places
The Real Black Friday is a day, leading into a weekend, during the month of August, in which Black-owned businesses and Black consumerism will be spotlighted. Researching August you will discover a multitude of important Black historical events that occurred during this month. In some circles, August is designated as Black August simply because of the historical significance. Given this information, what better time to engage in a financial initiative which will bring positivity and unity to the Black community.
Congratulations to Bangs Salon & Headlines, the newest members of Cleveland’s online community. Both sites were developed by the company behind Canvas Magazine, GoodProduce.
Nationally, there aren’t many black hair salons with a professional face on the web even in bigger markets like Atlanta or Chicago so this is kind of a big step. Be on the lookout for some future collabos between our sites in 2010!

It’s been awhile since we’ve lasted our last cool place. This time we bring you westside pita place, Liquid Planet. Known for their excellent pitas, rice bowls, and smoothies, LP has a great assortment of healthy food.
Liquid Planet is located on 11002 Clifton and also has a second location at Crocker Park. Click here to check out their website.
Located on the Westside of Cleveland, Johnny Mango’s World Cafe & Bar is a great place for a healthy lunch or dinner. What makes them unique is that they have a daily grain, bean, and veggie variety that comes with every meal. They also serve up some pretty big portions, keep that in mind too.
Johnny Mango’s is located at 3120 Bridge Street in Ohio City and open til 11pm every day except Sunday. For more information, click here to see their website.
Winner of MyFox Cleveland’s Best Healthy Lunch Category two years in a row (2007, 2008), Tommy’s is our first cool place restaurant to be featured on the site. They’re located on 1824 Coventry right in Cleveland Heights.
They have excellent sandwiches and salads with all the fresh veggies you’ll ever need. Tommy’s also has one of the best milkshakes in Cleveland. Check ‘em out!
Here’s another cool place in Cleveland to check out, the Cleveland Rock Gym in Euclid. If you’re afraid of heights this may not be the place for you, but if you’re pretty adventurous and want to try something new than you may want to stop by.
The prices are pretty inexpensive so it’s worth a try. Also, all first time climbers must make a reservation, and family passes are available as well. Check it out.

You may have heard about this place but have never checked it out! Ray’s Indoor Mountain Bike Park is one of the coolest places in Cleveland. It’s great for kids, a light workout, or even a date.
Some parts of the park are for experienced trick riders but they also have fun activities and things for novices to try out as well. There’s a little bit of something for everybody.
Also, if you don’t have a bike. Ray will rent you one too.
LeBron James will be hosting a FREE concert by award-winning recording artist, Jay-Z, at Quicken Loans Area on Wednesday, October 29th. The event is to encourage Ohioans to vote early and support Obama’s efforts to bring change to Washington.
