  1. Manzaris

    While Vito is retired, for years anytime I entered the door he would remind me of that one time my grandfather came to town from Albany in 1968 and hustled half of the regulars in a game or twelve of pool.
  2. Crystal City Olive Oil

    Their fig basalmic is pure perfection. Garlic olive oil, tuscan herb, in the fall they have a butternut squash that is tasty. I could just hang out there and taste vinegars and oil all day long if they let me.
  3. DPW Announces Fall Work Program For City Streets

    These guys truly are hard working guys. They have helped me on a project and I am so grateful to their hard work.
  4. Tops Market In Elmira To Close

    I read somewhere that theft could also be a factor- when there are so many repeated thefts that drives costs up. It will be an eyesore for that plaza, as it appears the City has been making some improvements on other store front facades on South Main. Just when the train appears to be moving forward, off falls the locomotive.

    I'm surprised it was South Main and not Cedar St.
  6. Gloom, Despair, And Agony On Me

    I really needed to read this today, Carol. Thank you.
  7. Thus far, many have been very tight lipped about this, which tells me the authorities want to have each and every duck in a row prior to making any statements or arrests. From some of the things I have heard, from both reliable and unreliable sources, I think this outcome is going to shock a lot of people. Heights is a small town, people are talking, and yet, so many are not.
  8. Finger Lakes Wines

    I should have known! I used to like it, when I was first trying out wine. Then I tasted real wine. People love it, their winery is always packed full of people having a good time. It's just not a flavor I prefer. Did I say Lemberger?

    What's HHJ? Just don't mention Red Cat- that stuff is only good for jello-shots and rock gut!
  10. Finger Lakes Wines

    LOVE THIS TOPIC!!!! Although I would certainly not start off a wine post with a sweet red, but hey, to each their own. Some of my favorite local wineries: Damiani- Seneca Lake- these guys are awesome- very welcoming, very "green"- they are one of the only grape fields that are grown naturally, without a lot of pesticides and structured vines. They have a divine geuwerziminier (which is kind of spicy, great with spicy foods) and chardonnays. Unlike Chris, I love the oak barrel flavor in my wines. Lakewood- their lemberger is to die for! Fox Run- Besides having the amazing chef Brud Holland on staff, they have some very nice rieslings and lemberger!
  11. What's sad is the number of filthy, heartless Facebook posters encouraging this. There is a serious mental health issue around here, on both sides of the "fence". Kudos toemergency personnel for talking the gentleman down.
  12. Capriotti To Purchase Baldwin Street Properties

    What's great about his properties is that he charges a reasonable rate- he's not out to outprice the market. He also has an airbnb above Finger Lakes House, and has plans to bring many more to the area.
  13. Capriotti To Purchase Baldwin Street Properties

    Jim is one of the greatest assets to revitalizing downtown Elmira, without a doubt! I had spoken to him about these properties, and I believe he is also looking to add a coffee shop/possible live music venue in this property as well.This man has a vision, the drive, and the capacity to bring this to life. I wish him the best!
  14. Elmira Woman Charged With Grand Larceny

    Play stupid games, win stupid prizes. All in one day, what an idiot. Someone had their sniffer out, and it clearly wasn't her.
  15. "Hey Listen To This"

    I know, I know.... there was no pencil in my pocket, just happy to see you
