Clevelanders Are The Best At These 10 Things, Hands Down
Not everyone has what it takes to be a true Clevelander. Some folks move here and quickly find that they can’t hack it. Others… just shine! Here are ten things that we’re the best at – hands down.
1. We're the best at getting through winter.
When the rest of the country is freaking out over a few inches of snow, we're on our way to work in a "snowpocalypse," then coming home and building snowmen.
2. Clevelanders are really good at being Irish... even when we're not.
We know how to celebrate St. Patrick's Day in this town - the parade alone includes over 10,000 participants! Many of us actually have Irish heritage, but those who don't are pretty good at being Irish, too.
3. Clevelanders do corned beef better than anyone else (probably has something to do with that whole Irish thing).
People in other states think they have corned beef sandwiches... but we know the truth. You haven't really eaten corned beef until you've visited Slyman's.
4. Clevelanders rock.
From the tiny band at the dive bar to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, we've pretty much got music locked down. LA and Nashville might disagree... but we think we're the best at rock 'n roll.
5. Our hospital is among the best in the world.
The Cleveland Clinic offers the latest medical innovations and is home to some of the most talented medical professionals in the world.
6. Clevelanders have the stinkiest breath, hands down!
While we can't claim this glorious fact all year-round, Clevelanders definitely have the stinkiest breath during the Cleveland Garlic Festival every August. This annual festival celebrates all things garlic... and we all try to consume as much as possible.
7. We make the best beer.
If you're looking for a tasty microbrew, look no further. Clevelanders have pretty much perfected beer.
8. Clevelanders are dedicated and loyal.
We cheer for our beloved Cleveland Browns, even when their season isn't great (which, let's be honest, is most seasons). Our dedication and loyalty crosses over into the rest of our lives too - you won't find more loyal folks than Clevelanders.
9. We've perfected hand-made pasta.
Cleveland serves up some of the best hand-made pasta in the world, no question about it.
10. Clevelanders revolutionized whiskey production.
They say, "Don't mess with a good thing..." but if you can make it even better, why not? Cleveland Whiskey did just that with their revolutionary process. It's so cool that President Obama even paid Cleveland Whiskey a visit!
Do you love Clevelanders so much that you’re dating one? If so,
here are a few things to know.
