in 1979 and is used as a victory song for the city's sports teams. In recognition of "Cleveland Rocks", Hunter was given the key to the city by Cleveland mayor Dennis Kucinich on June 19, 1979. Scott, Jane.

When Chef becomes a zombie, he is dressed like Jackson from the "Thriller" video, and he and the other zombies dance in a similar way. Chef also shouts "Oh" the same way Jackson often did during music performances. The song Chef sings is extremely similar to the actual "Thriller" song, but Parker said they deliberately made it "(just) different enough that we can't get sued". Stan is ridiculed for his likeness to Raggedy Andy, based on the rag doll character by children's writer Johnny Gruelle; Stan's girlfriend Wendy was originally supposed to dress as Raggedy Ann with Stan, but she instead chose to dress as Chewbacca.

hosting art

to standard mall franchises. The food court has great views of the river. Tower City is connected by walkway to the Tower City Amphitheater, the Quicken Loans Arena and Progressive Field, and the federal courthouse. Rapid Transit lines head west to the airport as well as through University Circle and suburbs to the east. '''The Galleria at Erieview''' is another complex downtown that includes a popular lunchtime foodcourt. It has recently been hosting art galleries and art events. '''Shaker Square''' is an historic shopping center built in 1929 and connected to downtown and the eastern suburbs by two Rapid Transit lines. The Square includes some interesting shops and restaurants and serves as the center of a diverse, lively neighborhood. Shoppers have been flocking to Northeast Ohio since the development of several lifestyle centers have attracted upscale retailers. On the East Side, '''Legacy Village''' (in Lyndhurst) has been added to Cleveland's ''fashion district'' along Cedar Road (which includes '''Beachwood Place''' and La Place in Beachwood). Nearby, '''Eton Collection''' (on Chagrin Boulevard in Woodmere) provides even more upscale options for shopping and dining. On the West Side, '''Crocker Park''' (in Westlake) provides a mixed-use "new town" environment with upscale shopping. Cleveland's active art community has galleries throughout the area with larger concentrations in '''Tremont''', '''Ohio City''' (just across the Cuyahoga River from downtown), and '''Little Italy'''. Unique boutiques abound in the inner ring suburbs of Cleveland Heights, Shaker Heights and Lakewood. New England charm and "mom-and-pop" shops can be found along the public squares of Western Reserve towns (settled as the Connecticut Western Reserve), including Chagrin Falls, Hudson, Olmsted Falls, Willoughby, Medina, Chardon and Painesville. Groceries and other basics The major supermarket chains in the Cleveland area are Giant Eagle, Dave's, Heinen's, Aldi, Whole Foods Market, and Trader Joe's. In addition the nation's two largest discount store chains Walmart and Target each have a store in Cleveland as well. The CVS and Walgreens drug store chains are also ubiquitous throughout Cleveland with many locations open twenty four hours a day. Eat thumb 300px W. 6th Street in the Historic Warehouse District (File:Warehouse District.jpg) Cleveland is host to a wide variety of restaurants and is culinarily much more diverse than an outsider might suspect in the Midwest drawing on large enclaves of ethnic neighborhoods and immigration (Ohio City, '''Slavic Village''', Parma, Hough, '''Little Italy''', '''Chinatown''' and others). Certainly, Eastern European food and Soul food are big in a city where Hungarians, Slavs, Poles, Czechs, Bohemians and Southern African Americans were drawn to the steel and automotive industries in the late 19th and early 20th centuries; however, recent emigres have spiced up the mix, adding many more influences including Indian, Chinese, Southeast Asian, Puerto Rican and Central American, Middle Eastern and Mediterranean. In the mid-1990s Cleveland was in step with the resurgence of the restaurant industry, and has many restaurants on-par with their larger-city counterparts, many of which are located in the '''Historic Warehouse District''', '''the Flats''', '''Ohio City''', '''Tremont''', the '''Gateway Neighborhood''' and along the '''Restaurant Row''' in the East Side suburbs. In fact, the area boasts of 6 AAA Four Diamond restaurants, the most between New York and Chicago. Today's Cleveland is not merely your Grandfather's sausage and pierogi steel town. Drink There are plenty of bars in Cleveland - most are located Downtown (Cleveland Downtown). Sleep Hotels are mostly located Downtown (Cleveland Downtown), with a few additional East Side (Cleveland East Side) options around University Circle, and some properties near the airport on the far West Side (Cleveland West Side). The only hostel in the city is in Ohio City on the West Side (Cleveland West Side). Neighboring suburbs also provide numerous lodging choices. Connect Wireless connectivity *Intel named Cleveland as one of its four "Worldwide Digital Communities" (with Corpus Christi, Texas; Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; and Taipei, Taiwan). Due to substantial capital investment in support of this distinction, Cleveland will eventually have free wifi access throughout the entire city. In the meantime, most coffee shops offer wireless internet connection as do the campuses of Cleveland State University and Case Western Reserve. The Tower City Center in the downtown area is another spot with free wifi access. Phone Greater Cleveland, including all of Cuyahoga County, is served by AT&T. Several other local telephone companies have networks in different portions of the county, and most cable companies also offer phone service through their networks. *Area code '''216''' serves the City of Cleveland and the inner ring suburbs. *Area code '''440''' serves the balance of the suburbs along with Ashtabula, Geauga, Lake, and Lorain Counties. *Area code '''234''' and '''330''' together serve the rest of Northeast Ohio, including Medina, Portage, Summit, and Stark Counties to the south. All calling within Cuyahoga County (which includes all of the '''216''' area code) is toll-free, and includes toll-free calling into and from western Lake County, Chesterland in Geauga County, Columbia Township in Lorain County, and the communities abutting Cuyahoga County in Medina, and Summit Counties. Area code '''216''' callers in the City of Cleveland can call toll-free into other communities in Lorain County, such as Elyria and North Ridgeville, while the remaining callers in Cuyahoga County can call certain areas at a reduced rate. Some phone companies provide the extended calling area toll-free as an added benefit to compete with AT&T. Stay safe When driving at night in the city, stay in your car along major urban corridors (like Euclid, Chester and Carnegie Avenues heading east and Detroit and Lorain Avenues heading west). At night, you may want to avoid inner city neighborhoods and the City of East Cleveland in its entirety (in this case, including Euclid Ave). '''East Side Driving Tip''' Many of the city's so-called "rough" neighborhoods are on the east side. However, tourists in general wouldn't have any reason to visit these neighborhoods. University Circle on the east side, where all the city's main cultural instituations is safe, however. Nevertheless, keep a watchful eye on your surroundings in the evening when vast parts of the neighborhood are deserted. Eastern inner-ring suburbs such as Cleveland Heights, University Heights, Beachwood and Shaker Heights are all very safe. A good rule of thumb is-once an East Side suburban "Road" becomes an Inner City "Avenue", turn around and get directions to Euclid, Chester or Carnegie Avenues. Example: Cedar Road in the East Side Suburbs (where it becomes the "Fashion District") is a really nice corridor, but once it becomes Cedar Avenue in the City of Cleveland proper, you should pick one of the above-mentioned roads that run parallel to its north. Similarly, Chagrin Boulevard (which connects the upscale communities of Shaker Heights, Beachwood (including Cleveland's "Restaurant Row" and the bulk of the East Side office market), Pepper Pike, Orange Village, Moreland Hills, Hunting Valley and Chagrin Falls) turns into Kinsman Road (an "underground pharmaceutical" neighborhood) once crossing into the City of Cleveland proper. '''West Side Driving Tip''' Again, staying on Lorain and Detroit Avenues, I-90, I-71 or the Shoreway (State 2) is your safest bet. However, driving West 25th (which becomes Pearl), State and Ridge isn't all that terrifying. On the near West Side, avoid the Public Housing Projects that abut the vibrant neighborhoods of the Flats, Ohio City and Tremont. Cleveland is ranked 7th in National Crime Rate Statistics. Avoid eye-contact, walk assertively, stay in lit areas, be aware of bushes trees corner, don't walk too close to buildings, Dial 911 from any telephone for emergency police, medical, and fire services.
