I'm a Utica-area native. In addition to "blogging" and DJ'ing, I write and produces the local commercials on Townsquare Media's local stations. When I'm not at the station, I'm busy keeping up with my 2 daughters. And my wife.
Fresh fruits and veggies unfortunately have a short season in Central New York. But thanks to the many public markets and farmer's markets throughout the area, you can still make these foods a part of your meals.
Of all the signature Utica foods, "pusties" are definitely the sweetest! We have some of the best pastry shops in the area and most of them serve up their version of the "pasticciotti", but what if you wanted to make your own at home?
We stumbled across this great recipe for Utica Greens. But it turns out this guy doesn't even live here! It looks like he might actually be from the area originally. Either way, he's giving love for our Utica Greens from afar.
John Mellencamp is coming to The Stanley Theatre on October 12, 2016. It's not the first time he's been to the area, but it got us thinking about which Central New York towns could be added to the lyrics when he sings "Small Town".
Do you remember this lovable shopping cart? Do you remember the commercials? The animated yellow cart used to say "C'mon in and push me around". We're talking about the Utica based super-market chain - Chicago Market. You can still see the faded logo on the Salvation Army building in Utica on the corner of Columbia and Cornelia Streets.
Do you remember seeing the famous orange roof in every city across the country on your family vacation? Howard Johnson's are mostly all gone now. The "second to last" Howard Johnson restaurant in Bangor, ME is set to close in September. That leaves just one HoJo in America.
