Every year, I save most of my vacation days till December so I can spend some quality time with my friends and family in Northeast Ohio.  This year I got to spend some time in one of the buildings where A Christmas Story was filmed, see the Cleveland Browns first win of the season and discover a brand new bar that the Treasure Valley would probably love to have. 

Below are some pictures of my trip! Some highlights to look for in there? Photos from the Cleveland Cavaliers win over the Milwaukee Bucks on December 21st, JACK Casino (which is in the Higbee building seen in A Christmas Story,) the gorgeous Cleveland Arcade building that's now home to a Hyatt Regency hotel and a killer chocolate based cocktail bar, Kraynak's Christmas Lane (where my parents used to take my sister and I every year,) and inside First Energy Stadium the day where the Cleveland Browns won their first game of the 2016 season!
