Winterfest – Through February 29th

Even though this winter has been a mild one so far, the winter blues can still creep in as we hope to catch a glimpse of the sun and long for that warm spring breeze to arrive.  Luckily, Syracuse turns this potentially dreary time of year into a celebration: Winterfest!  This past Wednesday marked the beginning of a two week marathon of enjoyable wintertime events, both indoor and outdoor.  Some of the upcoming highlights include theater, dancing, food festivals, and sports such as Syracuse Shakespeare Festival’s performances of Othello at the NY State Fairgrounds, the Chili & Chowder Cookoff in Hanover Square, Syracuse Crunch, a Salsa Survival Class, SU Lacrosse and Basketball, Sleigh Rides, and much more.  There is truly something for everyone, so be sure to see the list!

The Winterfest event that’s top on my list is Downtown Dining Week.  Through Wednesday, February 29th, more than 20 of Syracuse’s top restaurants will be offering three courses for $25 or less!  Some of my favorites include Pastabilities, The Mission, and Dinosaur BBQ, but take a peek at the complete list of participating restaurants to see if your favorite is on it.  What a perfect time to visit a restaurant you’ve been wanting to try!

With all of these exciting choices for fun, there is absolutely no reason to stay home this week.  Please let us know what your favorite Syracuse Winterfest event is!
