From The Plain Dealer's Laura Johnston:

The "Circle in the City" event, which will be replicated with different University Circle performers each week, marks two firsts: the first time University Circle has brought programming downtown and the first time Ameritrust has been open to the public.
Clevelanders can grab lunch from a buffet of food trucks parked on East Ninth Street. Then they can use the Euclid Avenue entrance to the rotunda, which has been shuttered since 2005.
