For those coming to Syracuse for the game

[9]
Posted: Oct 2, 2013 11:07 AM
 

For those that are travelling to Syracuse for the game, here is some information that you may want to consider during your time there. First off, I live there and in terms of things to do, I would consider checking out DestinyUSA, a trip to Skaneateles(nice upscale, village on a Finger Lake), Armory and Hanover Squares in Downtown Syracuse and if you like the arts, the Syracuse International Film Festival.

For die hard sports fans, there will be a minor league Hockey game at the War Memorial Arena later that Saturday night, if you have time. If you like HS Football, the Syracuse area has probably some of the best in NY State. A couple of games I would suggest are: West Genesee(featuring Syracuse commit Naesean Howard) against Corcoran, a Syracuse city HS with some good athletes and has had guys go pro in relatively recent years. That is in Class AA, NYS highest class. Another is Jamesville-DeWitt against East Syracuse-Minoa, which are two good Class A(second highest class) programs in the Eastern suburbs of Syracuse. Both have some good players as well. Game 1 is at West Genesee, which is in Camillus, a Western suburb and Game 2 is at Jamesville-DeWitt, a very nice Eastern suburb. It can be a way to compare the type of HS Football in NY to SC.

As for places to eat, check out Dinosaur BBQ in Downtown Syracuse, Heid's of Liverpool, Zebb's in Mattydale, Village Burger in Liverpool, Santangelo's in Liverpool, Tully's on either 7th North(Liverpool) or Erie Boulevard East(Syracuse), Delmonico's on Erie Boulevard East, Dominick's on Burnet Avenue, Coleman's on Tipperary Hill(Syracuse), Eva's European Sweets(Solvay) and Justin's Grill(East Syracuse), among others.

You may want to check out Onondaga Lake Park in Liverpool, go down Route 20 in LaFayette for Apple picking or pies, the Turning Stone Casino(about 30 minutes from Syracuse going east on the Thruway), the 1000 Islands(about an hour or so north of Syracuse taking I-81), the wineries in the Finger Lakes(west of Syracuse) and Cazenovia, a nice upscale village east of Syracuse.

If you have any questions, just ask and I will help to make the trip more enjoyable.

BTW: My mother is from Mullins and a lot of the Black folks in the Syracuse area have ties to the Pee Dee(Andrews, Lake City, Bennettsville, etc.)

"A lot of the Black Folks"

And they call us southern rednecks rassists and bigots...


I also found that an "interesting" commentary***

How is saying "Black folks" racist?

Both parties are failing to govern. And voters who align with parties deserve the worsened state of affairs they are going to have to live with for the next several years.

Woah there...

"Black Folks," is the most respectable southern way to refer to African Americans. If using the term isn't politically correct anymore it's because the rules have changed not because the loving and kind hearted folks that use it are racist or trying to say harmful or hurtful things.

Saying all that, I'll say call me colored, black, ni**er or injun. I'm Cherokee and none of that hurts my feelings but if you call me a yankee I'll take your scalp.

That is practically the only term I ever heard when I was


Posted: Oct 2, 2013 1:34 PM
 

growing up in the backwoods of the SC Lowcountry (not far from Lake City or Andrews). Most of my friends and practically all of my neighbors were of African ancestry and they referred to themselves as "black" - whether as "black people" or "black folks." Now, if they were being ironic, they might have used "negro" or a more pejorative term but no one I have ever known (at least back home) would take offense at "black folks." I was a freshman at Clemson before I ever heard the term "African American" but I do think that term gets some usage down there in more formal settings. If you used the more recent, politically-correct terms "person of color" or "people of color," you'd either get laughed at or punched in the nose or maybe both ...

Priceline into Rochester, Ithaca, Buffalo or Albany and rent a car.

At this point you are probably better renting a car where you live and drive nonstop.

Try leaving at the crack of dawn on Saturday or Monday (if you can get the time off). Friday-Sunday fares are always higher. If you can do Fri-Mon or Sat-Mon, you might find something.

Also, I've had luck on Priceline before. If you're flexible with times, give it a shot. Just don't do Saturday-- you may miss the game.

(Right now, there is a flight for $375 out of CLT on Friday, back to GSP Monday.)

Man, let me clear this up. I'm Black and was born and raised here. Hence the comment. Not being racist, but it may be an interesting tidbit that quite a few people in the area have ties to SC.


Thanks for the great info. Obviously everyone has gotten


Posted: Oct 2, 2013 12:36 PM
 

just a little sensitive with race relations and knowing what is "OK" in how to refer to other ethnic groups. Thanks for being cool about it and clearing that up. Go Tigers.


Re: For those coming to Syracuse for the game

If you are flying in, Albany, Rochester and Buffalo have cheaper fares. So, you may want to rent a car and drive up to Syracuse. All 3 are within 2 hours or so of Syracuse.


Thanks for the info chud1*******

Another suggestion is that Lake Ontario is only 40 minutes from Syracuse. Oswego is a nice port city of 18,000 that may be worth a trip. By SUNY-Oswego, there is Rudy's Lakeside restaurant right on the lake(great sunsets too). Then after walk to Bev 's for ice cream. There's also Fort Ontario Historic Park in the city as well. Since I went to SUNY-Oswego, a couple of places for a nice sandwich are Oswego Sub Shop and Garafalo's(get the half loaf). Canale's is a good Italian restaurant up there and there is one in the Liverpool area.

Also, if you like HS Football, our best team, Christian Brothers Academy is playing in Central Square. They are like our Byrnes High of the Syracuse area. It is a Catholic HS that also plays in Class AA. I'll add more later.

For the HS Football games, 2 are at 7 on Friday and the J-D/ES-M game is at 6:30.

No problem.....Man, I have so much information to give, but I'll wait when I get more of a break. We also have the Boxing Hall of Fame in Canastota, Sylvan Beach(with amusement park), the Harriet Tubman and Seward homes in Auburn, etc.


Baseball Hall of Fame, Cooperstown..2 hrs..beautiful drive***

Here is some information about HS Football in the Syracuse/Central NY area: http://highschoolsports.syracuse.com/football/

Another place to consider is Old Forge in the Adirondack Mountains about 2 hours away.

That Texan Mark website also has great information.

For Soul Food, you may want to check out Thomas Kitchen on South Salina Street or Iola's on South Geddes, but to be warned, both are in rougher neighborhoods. Iola's delivers though and is open until 6 PM on Fridays.

Also, if you want to get some local foods to take Down South, get some Hoffman Hot Dogs, Gianelli Sausage and Hinerwadel's Salt Potatoes. Dinosaur also has its own BBQ Sauce. Hit up the Wegmans Supermarket in Fayetteville/DeWitt, which is huge and carries a lot of stuff.

Don't forget that Oktoberfest is going on this weekend up here as well. Seems to be a lot going on around here for people to enjoy outside of the game.
