Northeast Ohio is home to some of the best restaurants around – and there’s a new name to add to the “must-visit” list! Natalie took us inside “Toast.” With local produce, farm-fresh ingredients and handcrafted cocktails, Toast is quickly making a name for itself.

Toast is located in the Gordon Square Arts District. That’s Cleveland’s West Side (Right across the street from the Capitol Movie Theatre).

Monsters University Craft

We had some not-so-scary Halloween monsters for you! Monsters University to be exact! Samantha Booth from Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores was here to help us celebrate the DVD release of Monsters University. Check out the kid-friendly craft she demonstrated by clicking on our video clip!


Dr. Marc

When you raid your child’s Halloween haul in a few days, go for the dark chocolate! Dr. Marc says it’s good for your heart – in moderation. Also, since many people like chocolate with nuts in it, Dr. Marc says stick to ones with almonds, which are filled with good fats. Avoid the cashews, which have a lot of saturated fat.


Fall Shoe Colors
