- Indoor Food Market -- Cleveland's Historical Westside Market http://www.city-data.com/forum/cleveland/1055087-clevelands-westside-market-named-best-america.html
- Cleveland's Theater District (Second largest outside of NYC)
- Classical Orchestra's (TIED -- both are a part of the BIG FIVE in America)
- Major Hostpitals -- Cleveland Clinic and Rainbow Babies @ University Hospitals

Other than that, Chicago wins in every other category ...including Sports

I'm just curious -- this would be the first I've heard this, so I'm just surprised.

From the link:

"As the country’s largest performing arts center outside of New York, the not-for-profit performing arts center utilizes the arts to engage individuals and attract over one million guests per year to its 1,000+ annual events."

We're talking about a District here, not overall number of theaters and seats across a city. I was referring to a section of Cleveland's Downtown.

There are 9 Performance venue within a 2 Block radius: "Today PlayhouseSquare’s nine performance spaces include the Palace, State, Ohio, Allen, Hanna and 14th Street Theatres, as well as Kennedy’s Cabaret, the Westfield Insurance Studio Theatre and Star Plaza," with the first five all built in the 1920's (aka gorgeous)
