Here is some late-breaking news, emphasis on “late,” because I just found out about it over the weekend. Sorry. I wish I had known about this when this month started.
The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame is offering a 2 for $20 deal during October. Two Northeast Ohio residents can tour the hall for less than half the price of two general admission tickets. The deal is for people whose ZIP codes begin with 440, 441, 442 and 443. You must present identification that proves you live in one of those ZIP codes.
Cleveland residents get free admission to the Rock Hall for the rest of the year, an offer that began June 23. This month’s deal gives a break to some of us who live outside the city.
I know people who have lived here their whole lives and have never gone to the Rock Hall. I’ve gone three times since it opened in 1995 and I enjoyed it each time. The exhibits change regularly and it seems to me the hall works to make them relevant.
One you can see now is Stay Tuned: Rock on TV, with artifacts including some related to “The Ed Sullivan Show” in the early days of television and others connected to music videos from decades later.
The Rock Hall’s usual admission fee has kept me from visiting more often, so I might grab a friend – maybe one who hasn’t been there yet – and go before October ends.
