The Cleveland Professional 20/30 Club showcased the Got*City GAME! Cleveland City BRAG Book and announced its new video series HotShots@HotSpots at their monthly “Around Town” happy hour event on April 1 at the Hard Rock Café at Tower City from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.

Hiram College President Thomas V. Chema unveiled the digital Cleveland City BRAG Book during a game show event at the popular downtown restaurant.

The Cleveland City BRAG Book is a trivia game with 157 “wow” questions and answers about the community’s business, education, and lifestyle assets. Readers will be saying, “Wow, I had no idea we are doing that…are first in this…have that going on…” as they explore every page of this new online resource.

“For the first time we have a tool to knit together a web of everything great in Northeast Ohio,” said Barbara Oney, executive producer of Got*City GAME! “We’re reaching out to the region’s young professionals where they are—online—with what excites them most about setting roots in a place to work and play.”

Readers of the Cleveland City BRAG Book scroll over a question and the answer pops up. They click “www” and are taken to a corresponding site for more information. Additionally, Cleveland BRAG Banner buttons will be on Web sites throughout the region directing people to the book.

Area Web managers should contact Oney (bsoney@gotcitygame.tv) to add the banner or the entire book to their Web sites.

“The Cleveland City BRAG Book isn’t the end product, it’s the beginning of a dynamic social network that will get the word out about Cleveland’s assets to the important 18 to 35 year old demographic,” added Oney.

The Cleveland Professional 20/30 Club joined forces with Got*City GAME! to develop HotShots@HotSpots, a new video series that can be found on the Got*City GAME! webTV site. The programs feature 20/30 Club members as they show off what they think are the “Hot Spots” for fun, work and living.

“The partnership between the 20/30 Club and Got*City GAME! is ideal. It fulfills our goal to show off what is great about our city in a dynamic and accessible way,” said Gautam Pai, 20/30 Club member and executive producer of HotShots@HotSpots. “Placing the programs on the Got*City GAME! site helps us reach an even greater audience.”

Cuyahoga Community College, Hiram College, and LiveCLEVELAND! were early sponsors of Got*City GAME!, a viral Web-based reality show that attracted viewers from more than 1,000 cities and 61 countries worldwide to watch teams of young professionals compete for a chance to win a year’s lease at Tremont Place Lofts and tickets to the hottest venues in Northeast Ohio. The program concluded on February 12, 2010, when Kim Sullivan and Alex Hamberger of Team LiveCLEVELAND! were declared the winners of Got*City GAME!
