|Old friends having fun. Captain Picard and Elmo for the win.|
We had so much fun running around town that I just had to share it.
|Grumpys in Tremont is my favorite breakfast spot.|
My favorite is the blueberry pancakes with a side of bacon.
After filling our tummies with homemade food, we hit the town.
|A Christmas Story House.|
Since we were in Tremont, we did a drive by the Christmas Story House. I love the fact that there is always someone hopping out of their car taking pictures at any time.
Our next stop was the Indians Team shop, hoping to get a quick tour of the ball park. We arranged something but had an hour to kill. It was around noon, we had time to kill and I had 5 diet cokes at Grumpy's, so we stopped at Paninis for a potty break, and a beer.
|These signs at Progressive Field made me sad.|
ZOOOM to Progressive Field. The main goal was to take a picture of the new mural after Giambi's walk off, but I couldn't help to snap some pics on our way. These signs were in the hallway.
|The Giambi Walkoff Mural.|
|There is no sitting on the monument.|
There were little spikes all around the top, to stop people from popping a squat on the monument walls.
|Beautiful day at the Soldiers' and Sailors' Monument|
|Tiffany Windows, signed by Tiffany in the Old Stone Church.|
|Cops, horses and hot dogs.|
|Great Lakes Science Center - Titanic Exhibit - First Class quarters.|
There are no photos in the exhibit, but it was very well done, including an simulated iceberg you can touch and freeze your hand off on. I admit, when I touched the iceberg, I actually thought about all of the Road Rules/Real World challenges where contestants have to touch ice until they quit or get frost bite.
I can't imagine the amount of wealth that was required to book passage on the Titanic. When you enter the exhibit, you are given the pass card of a passenger and at the end you can see if you person was rescued or not.
|Johnny's Little Bar in the warehouse district.|
It was pretty darn tasty.
|Peanut Butter sammiches, yo.|
I also took home a slice of apple pie, that my dad snarfed before I could even put it on the counter.
|The witty counter at Loop.|
I'm amazed at how much we were able to pack in, and most of it completely unplanned. Which is the best kind of day.
So Cleveland, what is your perfect day?
