A Proposition

Unread postby swerb » Mon Aug 20, 2007 5:14 pm

Here's a proposition to any potentially interested parties out there. I own the url www.ClevelandSpirits.com . From day one with this website, I wanted to tie northeast Ohio restaraunts, bars into the site over the long term. A place to go where visitors could ...

~Post and read reviews on local bars and restaraunts from site visitors
~Find a steakhouse to go get dinner at downtown
~A bar listing with maps for the watering holes within walkign distance of the Q and the Jake
~Host a comprehensive database of area restaraunts and bars with info like location, prices, online menus
~We could work with the establishments to post specials for our readers

I could go on and on. There's 50 different ways we could go with this.

I'm just so bogged down with my site, I don't have time for this endeavor. I need someone to take it on. I would finance the cosntruction of the website. And we would have a phenomenal lead in, as we could advertise the hell out of it on TheClevelandFan, also tie it right into the site ... while also being able to market it separately. We're getting significant viewer numbers now, and that base of viewers can be used to spin off other sites. This is the 1st one I want to tackle.

If anyone has any interest in talking further about this, let me know. Exceptional computer skills are not needed. Just passion and reliability.

It's a great idea. I'd write contributing stuff, but web design is like asking me to speak Swahili.

Matt, I'm blueprinting it now. Actually getting set to release a NE OH golf website shortly, and work on this will follow.

Rich I think possibly a great way to tackle this is by territory. Ask people interested in helping for their locations first, then just assign them the closest reasonable area/neighborhoods to tackle.

For IE, if I were to help (not saying I can or can't mind you) I live in West Park, Cleveland (butts up against the east end of Fairview Park). I would be responsible for that area (you can set the limits). Lots of bars around this area, not too many restaurants but there are a few.

IMO it would be asking a lot for one or even two people to tackle this by themselves, again just my two cents.

For starters, for arguably as good of wings as you'll get anywhere, I mean anywhere, Woody's at Triskett and W140th. KFC has nothing on the size of Woody's wings, and they are very very good. Price average IMO but I am not up on wing prices.

I live in Lakewood. I can hit a bar with a baseball from my house in two directions.
