New in Town: 3News Jason Frazer explores Cleveland

Jason feasts on pierogies and beer, finds the meaning behind Ohio City's art, and fulfills his goal of becoming a rock star.

CLEVELAND — WKYC Studios meteorologist Jason Frazer is one of the new faces of the 3News team. We wanted to welcome him to his new home by sending him on a tour of all Northeast Ohio has to offer, finding the new and iconic things to do in the cities that make up our part of the Buckeye State. 

Where else would he start but the city of Cleveland?

First Stop: Sokolowski's University Inn

At Sokolowski's University Inn in Tremont, Jason learns about Cleveland's cultural history, and fill up on all the Polish food his heart and stomach desires.

Second Stop: Ohio City Murals

Driving along West 25th on Cleveland's east side, they're not hard to spot. Jason visits the murals in Ohio City, that have a story to tell and connect Cleveland to the rest of the world. If only they could draw in a little "3News" logo somewhere...

Ohio City's putting art in your face. It's hard to miss the 10 large-scale pieces going up right now, changing the look and feel of the neighborhood and making it a social media destination. "It's really exciting to see it happen and it's a totally different place than it was four years ago," Mike Sobeck told us.

Third Stop: The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

It's one of the biggest attractions in Ohio, so Jason couldn't pass up a visit to the Rock Hall. He visits one of their newest exhibits, The Garage. Plus, he lives out his dream of being a drumming rock star.

Fourth Stop: Phunkenship Brewery

Nothing like finishing a long day of tourism with a cold one. Jason checks out the newest project fromPlatform Beer Co., Phunekship Brewery on the west side of town. They tout sour beers, creative cocktails, and all the funky vibes you could possibly want.
