35. Run into all of your exes in one night
About half of the 350,000 people living in Cleveland have never been married, according to the 2015 census, which means that of the 1,000 friends you have on Facebook, there's a pretty good chance you're going to already know all of your matches on Tinder. Not to sound pessimistic, but you haven't experienced the woes of the Cleveland dating scene until you've successfully managed to run into all of your exes in one night.
We're not talking about the Caribbean; Put-in-Bay, Kelleys, and Middle Bass make up Ohio's Lake Erie Islands. Take a ferry to the party and spend the weekend camping and riding in a golf cart -- it's the perfect blend of trashy and marvelous.
37. Watch the crowning of Miss Dyngus
Cleveland is weird, man: We're one of a few places in the country that celebrates Dyngus Day by going all out. Whip ladies with pussy willows and pour water on them! We're not kidding, this is an actual Polish tradition that takes place the day after Easter.
38. Throw a Fourth of July block party
People get wild on Independence Day everywhere, but especially so in Gordon Square and Little Italy: It looks like a jubilant war zone, with smoke billowing from the middle of the streets as neighbors illegally light off fireworks. Once the smoke clears and the stray cats emerge from under the porch, take that kiddie pool inside and hope that your guests didn't trash your lawn with beer bottles.
