The future of human-susatainable design

If you've spent 35 minutes driving three-quarters of a mile along Bridge Street in Syracuse the past 18 months, you've probably found yourself just putting your car in park on a 4-lane road to save yourself the over $4-a-gallon gas. From what I understand, it really has been a bad scene over there. I say […]

The new Natur-Tyme

There's a grand opening celebration at the newly relocated Natur-Tyme this weekend. The food and supplement store moved from their location on a dead-end stretch off Bridge Street (technically, I think it was on Bridge Street, but not really) to a much bigger space on Erie Boulevard East, in the former Goldberg's Furniture space. The […]

Back to training

I'm getting back to training this afternoon. I've been shooting for numbers at different points during the year and keep hitting setbacks (the last time I started, for instance, I was making some awesome progress, but my trainer was fired and I couldn't bring myself to do it on my own). Typically, having specific, data-driven […]

Who wants to help youth baseball and disadvantaged kids in Syracuse?

Update June 26: Sean wrote an additional column this morning about some of the stuff below. The wheels in my head got to turning early Friday morning. I'm excited about the possibilities of this, so I thought I'd write something up, see what you people think, and see if you have any ideas for me […]

Celebrating the Arts with the Future Fund

Some Central New York food businesses you’re missing

I sat down with Tracy recently and she reminded me that I needed to do another post about places I like. So, here are some of my current favorites. Cafe at 407 I've written about 407 before. I'm actually sitting in the cafe writing this blog post, staring at the real whipped cream on top […]

Old Newsboys? No, it’s not a sales gimmick

Every year someone has something stupid to say about the Old Newsboys campaign. In case you're unfamiliar with this, a bunch of people go around "selling" The Post-Standard and asking for extra donations on a two-day campaign. It looks very much like the newspaper is just trying to expand its reach, but actually, all those […]

Alec Soth and making vs. taking

For my birthday, one of the things I wanted to do was head to the Everson Museum of Art to check out From Here to There: Alec Soth's America (I'm also a big fan of the ceramics room – I can spend a couple hours down there without thinking). Soth is an Artist, with a […]
