Winking Lizard Galleria moving, but not far

The Winking Lizard in the Galleria in downtown Cleveland will be moving over the course of the next year, but don’t worry; it’s not going far. It will land across the street in the Aecom building.

Aviator Event Center and Pub moving into 100th Bomb Group space

Aviator Event Center and Pub is set to replace the 100th Bomb Group near Cleveland Hopkins Airport. The owners aim to create a one-stop shopping venue for weddings, so the flowers, food, music and all the other accompanying elements can be ordered and organized under one roof. Speaking of the roof, there is a special rooftop area with fire pits called “The Little Bomber.” About Aviator Event Center and Pub
