Inaugural Holiday Passport Project Features Newly Opened Businesses

Passport Front

Six Kamm's Corners businesses are offering a Holiday Passport to encourage people to eat, drink, and shop at their locally-owned establishments with a series of prizes and swag. Get your passport stamped each time you patronize a participating business. Passports with four or more stamps are eligible for the prize drawings. Special prizes are being offered in a Wellness Drawing to residents who walk or bike to each location and get a wellness sticker.

These businesses will offer the passport to be stamped for customers at each location. A sticker will be added to the passport for walkers or bikers to qualify for the Wellness Drawing. The passport will expire on New Year's Eve. Participants are:

Fireside Candles & More, 15903 West Park Road
Hatfield's Goode Grub, 16700 Lorain Avenue
Only in Clev, 17025 Lorain Avenue
Kamm's Corners Ice Cream Co., 3764 Rocky River Drive
Working Class Brewery, 17448 Lorain Avenue
5 Points Coffee & Tea, 3600 West Park Road

The brainchild of Conor Boylan, owner of 5 Points Coffee & Tea in cooperation with KCDC, the passport program aims to get residents to visit the newest businesses here.

Passport Back "Vibrant, connected neighborhoods are what I have experienced and want to bring to my home community," explained Conor, a native of Ireland and a former engineer in the "Clean Rooms" of Intel.

He voiced a common sentiment of our local business owners that great cities are built on great neighbor-hoods and the only way to build great neighborhoods is getting people involved in activities and talking to one another.

When asked whether inclement weather might hamper the success of the passport program, Conor laughed, saying, "Clevelanders are tough. More than any group I have met, they know that bad weather can't keep them inside, only unsuitable clothing. I am convinced that even in the worst weather, people will bundle up and head outside to meet interesting neighbors."

Be sure to pick up your passport at the participating businesses. Completed passports must be dropped off at any of the participating businesses by Sunday, December 31. If you are posting to social media, please include #KAMMSPASSPORT or #SHOPWESTPARK or both! Happy shopping!
Prize drawings take place on Tuesday, January 2. Winners will be notified by phone or email as provided on the passport. If you have questions, please contact conor@5pointscafe.com.

Asphalt Cinema Featured an Outdoor Family-Friendly Film, Games, Art, and Fun -- A Look Back

Impett Park on West 153rd Street was the site our popular summer series: Asphalt Cinema, an evening of games and prizes that ended under the stars with a family-friendly movie.

In addition to games, art activities took place and everyone was entertained with the help of DJ Kenny starting at 8 p.m. Hoola hoops, giant Connect Four, and fun contests kept everyone engaged while the sun went down.

Until dusk, kids drew characters from the featured film or coloedr pages to win a prize! The artistic portion of Asphalt Cinema was supported in part by the residents of Cuyahoga County through a public grant from Cuyahoga Arts & Culture.

Hot dogs, cold beverages, and fresh popcorn were available for purchase from West Denison Baseball League. The movie and the fun activities were FREE of charge thanks to our Asphalt Cinema sponsor, Cleveland Clinic Fairview Hospital!
