My friends and I are always looking for new restaurants to try around Syracuse that won’t cost a fortune to get to by cab or eat away at our gas money. One of the more popular places in the area is simply known by students and residents as Phoebe’s. Conveniently located across the street from Syracuse stage on the corner of Irving Avenue and East Genesee Street, Phoebe’s Restaurant and Coffee...
A Different Weekend Story
It’s a Friday night and you don’t know what to do. Going to parties on Comstock or at frat houses is getting old. Taking a drive to Destiny USA for a shopping trip was what you did last weekend and you’ve run out of movies for a cozy night in. So, this weekend how about doing something a little different?
