Fun fact: fun facts are awesome. Whether you're trying to chat up a flight attendant or simply love learning something cool, we've got some tidbits to share. So all this week, we'll be squeezing our mindgrapes to bring you some awesome, random travel factoids.
Fact: Cleveland Airport serves a special edition, locally brewed beer: The Wright Pils.
Okay so typically we wouldn't recommend your scheduling an extra hour or two before your flight to spend at Cleveland's Hopkins International Airport, but that was before we found out a little secret the airport's been keeping within Terminal C (mostly Air Canada and United flights).
At the Great Lakes Brewpub near Gate C 14the only location of Great Lakes Brewing Company's Brewpub outside their Brewery in Cleveland properthe limited edition beer is on draft. You'll want some of this, as it's more than just limited edition; it's aviation-themed. The Wright Pils is "classic style with flowery bouquet and an elegantly dry finish." It's made to pair well with salads, salmon, tuna and "marbled meats." It also happens to be named for Ohio's own Wright Brothers.
Usually we think of superhero movies as taking place in big cities, vast deserts, or some other exotic locale, but that won't be the case with The Avengers.
Yesterday, Ohio's governor John Kasich announced that The Avengers will be filmed in Cleveland next month, at least in part. The movie was originally set to be shot in New Mexico, New York, (where they still spend some time shooting) and Michigan, but after losing Michigan's tax incentives they were on the hunt for a replacement location, and Cleveland was more than happy to step up to the plate.

It's hard to believe that it's already almost one year since Michael Jackson's death and the ensuing hoopla of who was responsible. To mark the one-year anniversary of that fateful day, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame will spend a weekend honoring the King of Pop.
From June 25 to 27, Jackson will be celebrated with exhibits, live music and dance demonstrations. R&B songstress Angie Stone will close out the weekend by paying tribute to his legacy with a live performance in conjunction with the Rock and Soul Festival.
Ohio Governor Ted Strickland held a news conference today in support of a 10-story LeBron James sign hanging in downtown Cleveland.
The Ohio Department of Transportation told the advertising company responsible for the 212-foot-wide sign to remove it because its size and proximity to a highway violates state law and the federal Highway Beautification Act of 1965.
Strickland held his news conference in front of the ginormous King James ad near the Cleveland Cavaliers' downtown arena to argue that the billboard should not have to come down. He claims the big sign is all about state pride. After all, Cleveland is in the midst of a 43 year professional sports championship drought.
The Department of Transportation probably will let the King James sign stay, after all, LeBron could buy all of Ohio, but could their next target be our friends in Columbus:
That review will apply to oversize signs in Downtown Columbus, which also have been the subject of controversy and a court challenge last year
Look out Skybus.
