Since the first New York location finally opened its doors on Thursday in the Syracuse area, I felt it was only fair to review this establishment. I am warning you all that live nearby before making the drive to this place. And if you live anywhere else where this food is always available, it's never too late...
I made myself the baked potato soup from 'Better Homes and Gardens: The Ultimate Soups and Stews Book.' I got two russet potatoes and baked them in my oven to 425 degrees for 60 minutes. I had not known how to make a good baked potato before I tried this recipe. I cut the potatoes lengthwise. I left them in the fridge for a day, which resulted in black spots which I removed with a spoon. I smashed the potatoes with a fork, and threw out the potato skins. Then, I put the potatoes in my soup pot along with green onions and butter, to soften them.
To kick off my 2018 I decided to do a dry January. This seems to be increasingly popular as I quickly learned that two of my close and heavy drinking friends decided to partake as well. I have gone dry before so not drinking for one month was a breeze.
Craft beer has arguably never been more popular. What was once something of a niche culture has evolved into a massive scene nationwide and beyond. People from all walks of life have joined in on the fun and, truthfully, the culture is a great source for dates. Making road trips to visit breweries or hitting up the local bar for a drink and bite are fun ways to enjoy the company of your better half and your favorite beer at the same time.
