CLEVELAND -- It's the first big, warm weekend in Cleveland and there's lots to do downtown.
It's also the first weekend for the Horseshoe Cleveland Casino.
There's a batch of big events. You could say this is the first big weekend of a new reality for downtown.
Friday and Saturday there's the police memorial tribute. The Indians are at home at Progressive Field all weekend.
There's the Asian Festival and the Rite Aid Marathon on Sunday.
The added bonus is the great weather.
Everything is lining up, just like the taxicab drivers who expect a lot of business this weekend.
The restaurant districts are drawing crowds already, especially on East Fourth Street and the downtown hotels are packed.
