    Fortunately I just found out from the Shaker Heights housing inspector that everything passed inspection and that all of the violations have been successfully corrected. David did an excellent job in coordinating and assuring high-quality work on all of the many projects that were done here. We will definitely use Reilly Painting again in the future for other projects.

    Why not take a night out on the town tonight? If you're looking to escape the house or office, then you will surely like this Date Night! Ken Ludwig's "Game's Afoot" has been getting great reviews! Take a look at what Andrea Simakis has to say about this new play:

    The Game's Afoot

    What: The Cleveland Play House presents the world premiere of the play by Ken Ludwig, directed by Aaron Posner.

    When: Through Sunday, Dec. 24.

    Where: Allen Theatre, PlayhouseSquare, Cleveland.

    Tickets: $15 (students) to $69. Go to clevelandplayhouse.com or call 216-241-6000.

    Like any snappy, clever drawing-room mystery, there are twists in playwright Ken Ludwig's "The Game's Afoot" that cause the audience to gasp.

    But theatergoers who filled the seats opening night also drew a collective breath when the curtain at the newly minted Allen Theatre rose to reveal the set, the baronial living room of Gillette Castle, home to American actor William Gillette.

    With Arthur Conan Doyle's blessing, Gillette wrote the play "Sherlock Holmes," then performed the role of the brilliant sleuth onstage for decades, earning millions. He used the proceeds to build a stone fortress on the Connecticut River and outfitted it with newfangled inventions, such as the first intercom, and built mazes, hidden rooms and secret passageways into its floor plan.

    On the stage at the Cleveland Play House, scenic designer Daniel Conway has re-created the grandeur and weirdness of Gillette's manor, complete with elaborately carved wood doors, a boar's head mounted above a soaring fireplace and a trick sconce that, when pulled, causes a wall to rotate, hiding a bookcase and replacing it with a glowing Deco bar. (It's 1936, after all).

    After the play, head on down to Parallax, which as you can tell, is one of our favorite restaurants in Cleveland. My family has been going to Parallax for a while now, and it is usually a place where we go to celebrate birthdays, graduations and special events. Owner and chef Zack Bruell is notorious for creating and maintaining some of the most upscale restaurants in Cleveland. Along with L'Albatros and Table 45, Bruell can be seen some nights inspecting all the dinner plates coming out of the kitchen. Along with the restaurant's sleek and sophisticated atmosphere, Parallax is most known for the food, which, hands down, always makes a restaurant successful. The sushi is the best in Cleveland and the wide range of fresh seafood, meats and modern takes on classic and foreign dishes is what sets Parallax apart. The general manager, Demir Tezic, is Bruell's second in command at Parallax and a master of maintaining a calm, yet vibrant atmosphere. If you need help choosing the right wine to pair with your meal, Demir is the man to ask.

    Just read some the reviews below:

    "The White tuna is absolutely amazing... and I can honestly say I am not one to stray too much from my normal sushi choices, but I have done so at Parallax and was never disappointed.  Some of the freshest sushi I have ever had! Keep up the great work.  I know Michael Symon gets a lot of the cred in NE, Ohio, but I think Zack Bruell deserves just as much with gems like this and L'Albatros."

    - Faith A. Pittsburgh, PA

    "Just amazing.  Went here after a nice night on the town, we came In for a drink or two, and ended up hanging out and getting some of the best sushi I've ever had, but got the coolest service and sushi bar experience of my life."
