Turnout was low but drama was high on primary night, Tuesday, Sept. 15. As candidates for mayor awaited the verdicts of the city’s Republican and Democratic voters, it was apparent that the decision as to who would be on the ballot in November would be made by a quite small minority. In fact, barely 11,000 of the nearly 50,000 registered voters bothered to go to the polls.
Dazzling Diamonds has made its grand entrance into the Syracuse area! The jewelry store, previously located in Fulton, re-opened in Downtown Syracuse last month.
Changing locations after 20 years hasn’t slowed the oldest Mexican restaurant in Syracuse down one bit. Juanita’s Mexican Kitchen has expanded for its customers, but has kept the authentic, homemade dishes coming. Everything—tortilla chips and guacamole, sauces, salsas, and all—is still prepared fresh with their very own recipes. The famous restaurant now sits only blocks from historical Onondaga Lake Park in Liverpool.

Park and Ride is back for its 15th year at Syracuse Suds Factory. It kicks off this Saturday as the Syracuse University football team tackles the first game of the season. The tradition consists of a bus transporting fans to the Carrier Dome for games and then back again.
“We are all a part of Syracuse, so it is a great way to support our team throughout the year,” general manager Patty Sheridan said. Park and Ride also includes all Big East basketball games.
If a bus isn’t your style, you can still grab a seat at Suds and enjoy the game on one of the numerous TV’s throughout the restaurant.
Not only is Suds a big part of Syracuse because of the park and ride, but it also is the first microbrew pub in the area since 1963. There are 7 signature beers that are personally brewed, including Brown Ale, Honey Light, and Irish Red. A full bar is available as well.
The beer isn’t the only thing that stands out while you’re at Suds. The menu consists of signature foods, including the Suds Bomber and award-winning homemade soups.
Plenty of restaurants and bars in Syracuse have drink specials on certain days, but at Suds, they have weekly food specials. Thursday is Turkey Day. The fresh turkey and fixings make it Thanksgiving more than once a year. Fish fry on Friday is served with homemade macaroni and cheese. Saturday offers slow-cooked prime rib.
NFL football is back at Suds on Sundays and Mondays! There is nothing better than football and fresh beer.
Suds is a great, intimate setting for live music. The Salt City Jazz Collective has played at the pub for the past 15 years. You can catch them there on the first Wednesday of every month. Watch for their ads in this paper for their many other shows.
Happy Hour is all night on Fridays with plenty of drink specials.
Whether you want to try something different or stick to tradition, Syracuse Suds Factory is the place to go. The fun, personal environment is a little reminder of what makes Syracuse great!
Syracuse area Rep. Dan Maffei appears poised to announce his support today for Democratic candidate Stephanie Miner in the upcoming mayoral primary.
Both Maffei and Miner have sent notices of a press conference scheduled for 1:30 p.m. at Nottingham High School.
Maffei has played a key role in the past in Syracuse mayoral politics, managing the 2005 re-election campaign of current Mayor Matt Driscoll.
Miner's chief rival for the nomination, former Common Councilor and Assemblyman Joe Nicoletti, promised to comment on the endorsement later today. Nicoletti had earlier indicated that he had secured a promise from Maffei to stay out of the primary contest. The primary election will be held on Tuesday, Sept. 15.
Maffei chief of staff Mike Whyland confirmed that Maffei would be endorsing Miner today, calling her "the one who is willing to take the risks and make the tough decisions." Whyland denied reports that Maffei had ever promised other candidates that he would stay out of the race. "That's not true. Dan told people that he wanted to stay out of the race, but he never promised that he would. The dynamics of the race have changed."
When asked why Maffei chose to make his endorsement at this time, Whyland said it was "the dynamics of the race. The negative advertising. When you see Democrats beating up on other Democrats, it's not good."
