How’s this for a midweek lift? Every Wednesday at 7 p.m. the Music Box Supper Club presents an installment of its series Cleveland Stories Dinner Parties. You can hear fun tales about Cleveland’s past at no charge, not even a cover charge.
Past dinner parties have included local authors and personalities talking about their Cleveland experiences. My friend Moe and I attended one in May that celebrated the 50th anniversary of radio station WMMS. DJs Ed “Flash” Ferenc and Denny Sanders (center and right, respectively, in the photo here) and program director John Gorman (left), who all worked at the album-oriented rock station in its heyday, were on the panel.
You’ll probably want to eat or drink something during the dinner party. You can get a three-course dinner that usually has a tie-in with the presentation for $20. The dinner for tomorrow’s party with Brecksville-born comedian Michael Cheselka, for example, is whoopie cushion soup, rubber chicken and banana pudding.
Beverages are extra, and you also can order food off the menu. I think it’s a great deal for a tasty meal and a novel entertainment experience. The Music Box is on the West Bank of the Cuyahoga River in the Flats, so it offers fabulous views as well.
