I’m hoping that Positively Cleveland will help me out on this one. As I mentioned earlier on twitter, I met a guy in my elevator this morning who recently relocated to Cleveland (from Atlanta). Aside from passing along our apartment number, if he needs suggestions on what’s “cool and fun” from my man and I (my go-to words to describe the city in such a short amount of time), I really wish I had a 30-second elevator pitch.
Which is where you (Clevelander or not) come in!
My contest: what would your 30-second elevator pitch be to a newbie Clevelander?
Tell me, and you’ll win some Cleveland goodies (yep, goodness of Mel today):
You could probably pick one of these: Cle Clothing Co t-shirt
And a gift card for here (The Greenhouse Tavern) or here (Erie Island Coffee Company.
More than likely, a pair of admission tickets to here or here or here.
And whatever other Fave Cleveland Things I can throw together to tell you “thank you” — if only for loving Cleveland as much as I do. Like, say, The Original Stadium Mustard.
And if you’re a Cleveland ex-pat or outside of the area, I’ll send you some Cleve-O shit, but replace some the local museum passes and what-not.
BONUS UPDATE: OK, OK, I apparently need to bribe your office with cupcakes. A dozen of ‘em, if I select your pitch. Share them or eat them all on your own. Or I can buy you one. But it would be sad.
Or maybe I’ll just let you sit next to me at the lunch table.
EVEN NEWER UPDATE: Derek Hess and Kent Smith will be including a copy of their book “ Please God Save Us” (ahem, autographed, bitches!) to my Giveaway Winner. I love those guys… THAT’S CLEVELAND LOVE!
