Big news at Cleveland Browns Stadium:

“3 Cleveland celebrity chefs to open food stands at Browns Stadium” – Crain’s Cleveland Business

“Top Cleveland chefs Michael Symon, Rocco Whalen, Jonathon Sawyer coming to Cleveland Browns Stadium” – NewsChannel5

“Cleveland Browns, city’s top chefs team up” – Plain Dealer

#HappyinCLE! But only if you’re lucky enough to be sitting in a suite, or the club seats (otherwise known as the ring of $150-to-$310 chairs between the lower level and upper mezzanine that sits mostly empty from late October until the end of the season but always remains heavily guarded by Stadium employees mounted atop escalators).

Jim Ross, the Browns’ VP of business development explains at Crain’s:

“Bringing in three of the pre-eminent chefs in the region, we think, is a way to re-energize, revitalize and add a nice component to our premium offerings,” said Ross. “The chef component gives us a unique hook to host more corporate functions. We open up those stands and give companies the ability to have the best in Cleveland dining, and that’s very important for the corporate function side of things.”

So no longer will Browns Stadium’s One-Percent be forced to choke down brandless prime rib sandwiches and gourmet turkey clubs, and we can all breathe easier for that. But still no word in any of these reports on whether we can ever expect the celebrity chefs’ offerings to become an alternative to the ******* that makes up the concession offerings for the rest of us at the Stadium. Anyway, whatever. Celebrity chefs! Browns Stadium! #HappyinCLE! Plus, why didn’t you eat at the tailgate, anyway?

In other news, here are a couple of good reads on LeBron’s title: Bethlehem Shoals at GQ, “For LeBron and Us, ‘It’s about Damn Time;” and Eileen B. at The Importance of Being Cleveland, “LeBron 1, Cleveland 0” (We’re on Team Lil C here). Which is all for today. Hope everyone has a great one.
