I'm driving to Cleveland to see Chi Sox on July 17! I will leave after the game to head to Cincy! Any recomendations from anyone as far as pre game bars or eateries?

Whenver I go to the Jake I normally stop for some "tasty beverages" at a friend's house up near C-town so I'm not really sure on where exactly the best places to go are, but I've always been a fan of Panini's. It's a northeast Ohio bar/grill, known for their panini sandwiches, which are basically overstuffed sandwiches with coleslaw and fries on them, they run about 6-8 dollars depending on the size you get. There's one right over near Jacob's Field, on Huron I believe. Of course I may just be biased because I really like the Panini's that just opened up across the street from Canal Park (where the Aeros play) here in Akron. :-D I'm sure somebody else that frequents the area for pregame activities could probably suggest places that are better though.;-D

One suggestion depending on how good/bad of seats you got, although none of the seats have a "bad view". They just opened the Batter's Eye bar just to the right of centerfield this year. There's tables that anyone can sit at out there that offer a view that'd probably be better than most upper deck seats or bleacher tickets IMO. I'm going to see how hard it is to get a seat out there on the 4th, when I go to the night game for $1 hotdogs with my bleacher tickets. Close proximity to beer, and dollar dogs is just too good of a combo.

If you plan on sitting in hte batters eye bar for the game. I know that immediately after the gates open the front row of seats fill up. Those are the seats on the railing that make relaly good seats. So if you plan to sit there, get there early

If you enjoy sitting outside on a huge deck next to a river, then Shooters is the place to be. ;-D

Also, the Winking Lizard tends to get busy before and after games ;-D

Without a doubt, hit Great Lakes Brewing Company.


Just across the river. Cheap parking. They have a shuttle (The Fatty Wagon -- runs on converted cooking oil!) that will take you to and from the game for $1 (buy tickets at the bar).

Their food is excellent, but the beers are wonderful.

Try the Edmund Fitzhgerald Porter ice cream.
