Is this the biggest food week in CNY history?

Food Essay and Links | Compiled by Nathan Mattise

In my other blogging escapades, I like taking a hard stand by creating comparative greatness arguments. I’m not as well-versed over time with Diner Without Frosted Tips’ subject (food happenings in CNY) as I am with others, but this week has me thinking:

Is this the biggest food week in CNY history?

Allow these links to speak for themselves:

  • Finally, less about national attention but more local-business oriented, SU students in the class of 2014 returned to campus this week. The class is bigger than ever (more opening weekend dinners with mom and dad before they leave) and also they are now directly exposed to Armory dining within their orientation.

I’m having a hard time thinking of a more active CNY food week during my six years in town. Anyone have other candidates?

Our national holiday, but no rest for the food-inclined.

It’s one of the few events I have a chance to cover annually, and I’ve already started focusing over on Twitter. Happy Fourth of July to all but, more importantly, get ready for the 2010 Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest!

Check out the live blog over at In Pursuit of the Trivial. Then afterwards switch back the focus to our national pride, fireworks and an open grill…

Cuse culinary enemies, grocery bagging, help for Doc’s and help finding CNY diner experts.

  • With the NCAA tournament on the horizon this week, it’s important to remember the Orange’s culinary adversaries – Diet Coke and Chipotle.

SyracuseDiners.com is going to be a multimedia project bringing you a look at the Onondaga County diner scene like you’ve never seen before. The main project will focus on 14 local favorites and then upwards of 70 diners will be included in the site’s database. These diners will also serve as potential topics of interest for the site’s official blog (that yours truly has been asked to contribute to). If you are involved directly in the ‘Cuse diner scene, know someone who is or can speak to the scene to provide perspective, please e-mail me if you’d be interested in somehow getting involved.

  • I will be having lunch in the next 15 minutes and you better believe I know today is the last day to celebrate Grilled Cheese month.
  • (If I don’t have Grilled Cheese for lunch and I make it on my Foreman for dinner… there wouldn’t be close to enough grease to accomplish this).
