Why Ohio City? We (my wife Amber and I) chose to live in Ohio City because of the diversity in our neighborhood and because of its walkability. We wanted to live close to our business (Cleveland Tea Revival) which is also in Ohio City. The sense of community is unmatched by anywhere else we have ever lived.
What is your favorite season in Ohio City? Summer! We live across the street from the Kentucky Gardens, so we get to see people from the neighborhood working on their beautiful gardens every day! Plus, we like to walk to Edgewater or have a beer on on patio somewhere, like Jukebox or Platform.
In your opinion, what is a best kept secret about Ohio City? Cleveland Tea Revival of course. But seriously, its the B and G tavern on Lorain.
Favorite West Side Market Stands? Urban Herbs, Basketeria, and Rooted in Cleveland. Those are not only my favorites stands, they are objectively the best stands.
Favorite Ohio City traditions? Saying hello to Jeff, our UPS driver; he’s the best. Also, Johnny Mango’s makes an amazing soup called Laska that is only served for the month of December. We look forward to it all year.
Involvement in the Community: We participate in community meetings and currently we have a basket in our store to collect school supplies for Urban Community School kids.
