College in CLE: Coventry

Coventry – 6.8 miles away, 15 minutes on a good day.

We’ve been in school for a little over 8 weeks nows.. but have you hit up this eclectic hot spot during the day? It’s true, our campus partakes in a mass exodus every Thursday night to Coventry. We all whip out our bandeaus and crop tops and off to City & East we go! But, did you know that there’s more to Coventry!? LOTS MORE!

This half mile strip consists of loads of healthy / vegetarian / & ethnic eats, coffee shops, bookstores, lounges and pubs, vintage record stores, a toy store, bohemian / hippie-esque boutiques and a variety of hipster / American-made / and vintage clothing shops!

A not so comprehensive list of Coventry:

Tasty Eats: 

Tommy’s – Wonderful for the vegan or vegetarian.. My personal favorite is their falafel, milkshakes, or smoothies. (Meat options are available to those carnivores.)

Dave’s Cosmic Subs – Rock N Roll + Graffiti from floor to ceiling. I always, always get Dave’s Famous Italian Sausage. Bring a Sharpie to leave your mark (it’s A-Okay with Dave).

Bodega – Want to finally wear that little black dress? Perfect for this chic restaurant and lounge! Definitely check out their website for daily specials – I had a 3 course meal with a beverage for $30 once!

BD’s Mongolian BBQ – Definitely an exciting and Interactive Stir Fry. If you like egg, add that to your bowl & watch the cooks do some pretty creative ways to crack it on their giant frying table – without using their hands! Also, if you bring your Ursuline ID it’s $10.99 for all you can eat!

Other restaurants include: High Thai’d, The Doghouse, Jimmy Johns, Tree Country Bistro, Chipotle, Hunan Coventry, Grums Sub Shop, The Inn on Coventry, Phoenix Cafe, and Pacific East.

Shops:

Passport to Peru – Step inside another world almost! You’ll be mind blown by all the awesome and totally out-of-the-norm threads, jewelry, shoes, cable-knit alpaca scarves, bags and more. I bought my mama a pair of brightly colored, wool muk-luk slippers for $12!

Avalon Exchange – Buy, Sell, or Trade your clothes and accessories to always update your style. You’ll never know what you will find in this gem of a store. I fancy their awesome array of sunglasses and top hats!

Big Fun Toy Store – A whirlwind of colors when you first walk in. You can spend hours checking out their vintage toys and collector’s items… along with odds & ends clothing, humor items, bumper stickers, stick on mustaches, crazy hats and lots more. I always end up grabbing a few fun props from around the store and hopping in the photo booth! It’s the best part, in my opinion.

Record Revolution – Mix of vinyls, vintage clothing, jewelry (body jewelry too), posters, incense, band t-shirts, CDs, and much more. Their outside display case is definitely something to look out for!

Other places to shop include: City Buddha, American Apparel, Attenson’s Antique & Books, Next, Utrecht, Sunshine Too, The Exchange, Mac’s Backs and Coventry Cats.

So there you go, this is Coventry in a very short wrap up. Go explore! Also, please feel free to leave a comment about any cool places you stumble across!

College in CLE: Ohio City

Have you ever asked yourself, what is college in Cleveland like? The Marketing Department recently went on a road trip to find out. Our goal is to showcase Cleveland and the Northeast Ohio area – on a  student’s budget. After spending most of the day on the Eastside in Chagrin Falls and Little Italy, we headed west for Cleveland’s Artisan Neighborhood, Ohio City.

Ohio City strives to develop, preserve and promote the diverse, historic, urban community. One of Cleveland’s older neighborhoods, redevelopment and rediscovery has attracted projects focusing on commercial development, including expanded storefront renovation and a multi-million dollar renovation of the West Side Market. Newly constructed condominiums and townhouses throughout the neighborhood, as well as a thriving retail and restaurant scene, have added vitality to the popular Cleveland neighborhood.

Check out our notes and photos from our evening in Ohio City!
