Fun Find: Check out Room Servicein the Detroit Shoreway neighborhood. This peculiar little closet-of-charm has all kinds of clothing and other assorted oddities (jewelry, decorations, unusual gifts) and many of them are actually made in Cleveland. The owner does this event called something like Made in the 216 where she highlights artists and designers who are working in the 216 area code. It looks like she’s doing the next one in November, so keep your eyes open. Extra Bonus: Get some Cleveland pride by wearing some CLE Clothing shirts, which you can buy at Room Service or on CLE’s Web site.My friend Pete has my favorite: a giant crown on a black shirt that says “Notorious CLE.” Cheers to people doing awesome creative work and keeping it in town!

In other fun Detroit Shoreway news, I read that they’re working on the Capitol Theatre, which is supposed to be kind of like a West-siders’ Cedar Lee — lots of indie, film-fest kind of movies. I’m not sure when it’s supposed to open, but the Web site for the project says it’s a revitalized 1920s vaudeville style building. Sounds pretty excellent.

Update: The Plain Dealer says the theater will open in the first week of October. Super rad. I love you, Cedar Lee, but I’m psyched to save some gas money.
