  • CLEVELAND -- Dishcrawl, a business that connects communities through food, debuts in Cleveland's Gordon Square neighborhood tonight to help residents "see the possible" in their own backyard.

    "It's not just a place where people are coming at night, it's also a place where people are living," said Jeff Moreau from Sweet Moses. 

    It's a place where folks can walk to work.

    Jill Davis is opening her food and wine bar, called Toast, just blocks from where she lives.

    "I live in the neighborhood. I live over on 52nd Street. It's a vibrant, really happening area now," Davis said.

    Davis will make her debut tonight at Dishcrawl, a national movement featuring local events. It's all aimed at introducing local businesses to local people.

    "Neighbors love to see lines here. To them, that was the best thing in the world," Moreau said.

    Moreau really wanted to create a store where people walking by would look in, then walk in, enjoy the atmosphere and finally stop to enjoy a homemade treat.

    Sweet Moses is also one of the restaurants taking part in tonight's Dishcrawl.

    "They see their dollars really doing something and staying local and staying with the economy and that really does have an impact," Moreau said. [TAKE: TRACK]

    An impact that creates a community.

    "It's synergy. It's not competition here," Davis explained.

    That's really what the Dishcrawl philosophy is all about: The more people come to an area, the more every business will benefit.

    Every month, Dishcrawl Cleveland secretly chooses a local neighborhood to host the event.
