Lauren and Noah and I went in Cleveland for the last couple of days. I went to go to the Cleveland Air Show ("Cleveland's Labor Day Tradition") to hand out foneGEAR pens and coupons on behalf of a customer that was sponsoring the show.
For me the highlight of the show was seeing the Air Force Thunderbirds demonstration team.
F-16s rattled Downtown Cleveland and blew away the crowd. Figuratively.
We stayed at the downtown Hyatt, which is in one of the oldest shopping centers in America, the Cleveland Arcade. Our room was on the third floor of the Arcade. The hotel is lovely but flawed: there was an exuberant wedding reception on the main floor Saturday night, and the music kept us up. No one slept very well, so we decided to check out a day early and just go back to Detroit. It was an awesome band, we just weren't in the mood after driving a lot, walking all over and trying to find a good dinner in a mostly closed city.
