Cleveland Browns 2016: A football fan party guide (photos)
Never say die: Cleveland Browns fans are prepared for 2016. CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Expectations haven't been so low nor has optimism been so high. This, you see, this just another Cleveland Browns season, which opens at 1 p.m. Sunday when the Browns travel to Philadelphia to meet the Eagles. (1 p.m.; WOIO Ch. 19). Yes, the fans will watch the games and no doubt tailgate - after all, it's the latter that helps you get through the former. But Browns fans are taking a sober approach to the season, if not the beer cooler. "It's going to be a rough year, but I'm still going to be the Browns No. 1 cheerleader," says superfan Gus Angelone. "Because, finally, they're building something for the future." You might know this 40-year-old forklift driver from Parma by his big orange head. You mean, Pumpkinhead - the leader of the Pumpkin Patch Browns Backers? A season ticket holder for 14 years, he's cheered on the Browns through good times and bad. And while he doesn't expect many wins this season, he will host a tail-gate party for all Browns home games at Barley House -- 1261 West Sixth Street, Cleveland; 216-623-1700; barleyhousecleveland.com. Pumpkinhead will pull his customized Pumpkinmobile up to the bash and lead the party, join in with some brewskis and give away T-shirts, Even demolish a car. "We're smashing up a car when the Patriots come to town," says Angelone, who will be joined at the tailgates by sports talkers from WKRK FM/92.3, which will broadcast from the event. "We'll decorate it with some Belichick stickers and deflated balls and give fans sledgehammers and let 'em go at it." At home for away games Lest you think the party will only go down when the team is at home, a number of spots will hosting away-game viewing parties. Are you ready to party with The Bone Lady? Yes, that one - the one in the orange skirt and top, buttons, bones, long white gloves and a funky beehive that looks like a cross between Carmen Miranda and the B-52s, The Browns superfan will host a couple of shindigs this Sunday to mark the opening of the season: Noon to 2 p.m., at the Winking Lizard Tavern Bedford Heights, 25380 Miles Road; 216-831-3488; winkinglizard.com/locations/bedford-heights; and 2-4 p.m., at the Jack Thistledown Racino, 21501 Emery Road, North Randall; 216-662-8600; jackentertainment.com/thistledown. "It's obvious they're starting all over again and rebuilding - and they won't be winning many games," says Darnall, an artist whose zany get-up was inspired by movie director John Water as the Browns. "But finally they're rebuilding the right way." The Bone Lady will host a tailgate bash for the home opener - 1 p.m. Sept 18 vs. the Baltimore Ravens - at the Winking Lizard in the Galleria at Erieview, 1301 East Ninth Street, Cleveland; 216-297-4490; winkinglizard.com/locations/galleria. For more on The Bone Lady, go to facebook.com/bone.lady.5/. Bernie, Bernie The Hard Rock Rocksino at Northfield Park is more than a party pad for Browns fans. It's home to a high-end shrine to the team's beloved quarterback, Bernie Kosar. The casino -- 10705 Northfield Road, Northfield - is home to Kosar's Wood Fired Grill. The restaurant-bar is akin to a fine-dining spot you might find in Las Vegas, from the wide-ranging drink list to a menu that focuses on steaks but is eclectic throughout. ("The 19" headlines the steak options, but seafood entrees such as Shrimp and Salmon Duo stand up to any offerings in high-end seafood restaurants.) The vibe is homey and the decor is hometown - a collection of Browns memorabilia from Kosar's heyday with the team. Kosar's will be doing Browns viewing parties, as will the casino's Club Velvet - which will host pregame brunches. For more info, go to hrrocksinonorthfieldpark.com or call 330-908-7625. Bring on the games Here are a number of spots that host Browns viewing parties, brunches, lunches and drink specials when the team is at home and away: Around the Corner, 18616 Detroit Ave.; Lakewood, 216-521-4413; atccafe.com: This ol' dame has been hosting Browns parties since, well, anyone remember when Mike Phipps was QB? The vibes are happy-go-lucky and brunch (9:30 a.m.) is a popular stop before  the game. Corner Alley, 402 Euclid Ave, Cleveland, 216-298-4070; thecorneralley.com: Whoa, it's the like the United Nations of Sports Bars. The main room will no doubt have the Browns game playing, but the bowling alley and side rooms televise a variety of other games - which has made it the go-to spot for transplants looking to follow their home teams. Gillespie's Map Room, 1281 West Ninth St., Cleveland, 216-621-7747; maproomcleveland.com: This spot has the vibe of a bar in some previous time, like when the Kardiac Kids played. Bonus: The joint is a five-minute walk to the stadium. So you won't need directions to the game, even if you're loaded. Magnolia, 1167 Front Avenue, Cleveland, 216-282-6970; facebook.com/Magnolia-Cleveland-1131876270169032: The just-opened donut shop in the Flats East Bank project is also a "secret speakeasy" and night club in the back. Alas, it will also double as a hang out on Sundays, when it hosts Browns parties. Maple Grove Tavern, 14832 Pease Road, Maple Heights, 216-475-4224: The tailgate continues even when the team is on the road. That's how it's been since the Browns returned at this comfy, casual spot that always feels like a home game. Action often starts around tailgating time and runs through the fifth, sixth and sometimes seventh quarter. Good vibes. Nuevo Modern Mexican, 1000 East Ninth Street, Cleveland, 216-737-1000; cleveland.nuevomodmex.com: This just-opened spot serves up Mexican-American fare, margaritas and tequila - not to mention stellar views of North Coast Harbor and Voinovich Park. Bow wowwow, it will also host Browns parties before games, complete with a Sunday brunch. Old Angle Tavern, 848 West 25th St., Cleveland, 216-861-5643; facebook.com/The-Old-Angle-Tavern-120991484581558: While it's regarded as another kind of football bar -- where the game is played with a round ball -- it's homey but lively place to watch NFL action. Nauti Mermaid, 1378 West Sixth St., 216-771-6175; thenautimermaid.com:  This Warehouse District institution serves a brunch for all seasons, one that features traditional offering to go with unique takes on seafood. It's usually jammed on Browns games - regardless whether it's a home or away game. It opens at 9 a.m. for home games; 10 a.m. for away. Velvet Dog, 1280 West Sixth St.; 216-664-1116; velvetdogcleveland.com. Yes, there's the rah-rah vibe, cheerleaders and beer at this Warehouse District spot, which will host pre- and post-game parties throughout the year. But soak up the rooftop patio while the weather is good. VSP Lounge (aka Skeets' VSP Lounge and Restaurant), 3551 East 93rd St., Cleveland, 216-441-2904: This happy-go-lucky East Side bar-eatery is the spot where the dawgs bark the loudest. Yes, the fans are boisterous. It's also a favored spot for Steelers fans.
