Hells Angels, centenarians and a steaming dish of paprikash

My efforts for this week's Fresh Water include everything I've mentioned in this post's title as well as something a tad more subtle: a nod to Cleveland's unsung immigrants.

So while Coke can sing about America the beautiful in seven different languages, I'm happy to sing about Cleveland the beautiful in English, Hungarian, German, Hebrew and Lebanese.

Yes, really. Now go read the article.

Balaton, where the Irish Hungarian goes for homemade Hungarian.

You must be a regular at Balaton's. I mean they commissioned that portrait and all.

When Balaton's left Buckeye, I usta drive past the building with that empty feeling that only real paprikash can fill. Thanks, Erin, for cluing me in yet again. Heading there asap.

Remember Zosia's on Broadway?

MR, now that made me laugh like hell.

I do not remember Zosia's, Phil. As for Balaton, you will not be disappointed. I can't wait to go and have a proper meal there.

Zosia's was a Polish diner on Broadway and 79th. Duck blood soup, and on the wall a picture of the Pope, and a hacksaw frame with a piece of chain welded in(Polish Chainsaw).
