Give, and You Shall Receive

with one comment


This week heralds the yearly Brookside Center Thanksgiving food drive for my community-Brooklyn Centre as well as Old Brooklyn and Brooklyn. Part of the Westside Ecumenical ministry, Brookside Center helps those most in need in our community by stocking a food pantry, resale shop, and supporting people who need to find resources to help them through rough times. Donations of food or cash  can be dropped off directly to Brookside Center at 3784 Pearl Road.

Or, you can stop by The Ugly Broad Tavern tonight for a taco. And, your question is “what does Taco Night at 3908 Denison Avenue have to do with a local food drive?”  A lot, actually. Bring a food or cash donation  and YOU will receive a FREE taco. If you supplement that taco with a cold beer, some friendly conversation with friends and neighbors, and the good feeling you get  from giving you have the makings of a warm and cozy evening in Cleveland.

It’s Halloween at The Ugly Broad

without comments


Tim and I stopped by our favorite neighborhood tavern last night for tacos.  Wednesday is Taco Night at The Ugly Broad.  They are Go-o–d. This time they were exceptional.  Homegrown tomatoes added a special taste treat.  Patrons share their bounty with Sherry’s kitchen.

Little Sherry, Sherry and the rest of the crew are getting ready for the annual Halloween Party. Sherry tells me that Little Sherry is in charge.  Each day it looks just a bit more like Halloween. Sherry let me borrow a flyer so that I could add it to my post.


The menu sounds extremely scrumptious with toad’s eyes, eyes of newt, devil’s eyes, graveyard pizza and a sandwich that is “to die for”.

Since the flyer is a bit small.  Here are the details. 

Saturday, October 25th at 7:00 p.m.

And you will just have to attend to sample the ingredients of that sandwich and the other frightening treats.  I’m not giving away any secrets because I sure don’t need any bewitching spells on me this year.
