Breaking It Down

Last week I upped and left on for a couple of fun-filled days of travel. I provided the interwebs with a few clues but the teaser I left posed a few problems and no one got the answer from that post so let's break it down. First the visuals the montage of images consisted of landmarks cultural and iconic, musical and artistic, kitchsy and culinary:

The Free Stamp, outdoor sculpture by Claes Oldenburg and Coosje van Bruggen.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

The Mall, a great public space with outdoor art.

The newly opened East Wing of the Museum of Art

The iconic lampshade light from A Christmas Story, which was shot in this city.

Iron Chef Michael Symon whose restaurant Lola served up the best oysters and yellowtail (above) I've eaten in the US and a smoky, chile-flavored Berkshire pork chop that made me wish we'd had time to visit his other restaurant, Lolita, for the Tuesday Night Pig Roast.

Then there was that verbal clue about "using your ingenuity". That refers to the Ingenuity festival of art and technology, held in July.
In retrospect it was easy, wasn't it? More to follow soon from my trip to the positively fabulous city of Cleveland.

The fish looks delicious! Heck I guess a sushi bar will have to do.
