273. Jamesville Farmers Market

With the new season comes a whole new set of produce. We’re so lucky to live in an agriculturally rich area where we get to try a variety of new fruits and veggies with the changing seasons!

FarmersMarket

Jamesville Farmers Market is small, but it’s so convenient and well worth checking out. It is every Thursday with It’s last week being October 10th so go before it shuts down for the season!

You should stop by on your way home from work and pick up some something fresh for dinner! They’re open until 7:30pm.

Tip: The market will be operating regardless of weather

272. Dodgeball League

When it comes to competition in Syracuse, the young professionals in this town take it to a whole ‘nother level.

The competition is fierce in this town, and for good reason! We’ve got a lot to look forward to if we win!

dodgeball

Dodgeball is one of those games where you’re either really good at it or you’re really bad at it…and if you think you’re going to be awful, you’re more than likely a superstar and you just don’t even know it yet.

Dodgeball here in Syracuse is a serious art, and all are welcome to play! It’s co-ed & you’re allowed 6 players on the court at once. The league runs for a total of 11 weeks. Sign up here to play on Tuesdays, Wednesdays or Thursdays.

It’s $300 per team with a total max of 10 players. Regular season play starts Oct 8th so sign up before it’s too late!

Tip: You must have at least 1 female on your team!

271. Tully’s

You know what a good time is?

Tully’s.

Tully’s is a good time.

Syracuse might have a bye this week but many other college football teams do not….which means that if you’re not headed to Chucks to watch any games, you should check out Tully’s!

Tully’s has the best, i repeat, the best chicken tenders in New York. They always set up quite the restaurant at the State Fair but there are also a few other restaurants throughout the city. But really, their chicken tenders are really great and you should try them out!

AND….each and every Tully’s in the city has 80+ televisions…that means on game days you can watch games from coast to coast without any interruptions.

Tip: Check out their daily drink specials!

269. Syracuse University Football Game

We’ve already featured the Ernie Davis statue, which is awesome! Now, there’s no excuse not to go to any football games!

SU joining the ACC this year has brought some heavy competition to their schedule and this weekend is no different! Syracuse takes on Clemson at the Dome Saturday October 5th at 1pm.

If you’re new to Syracuse or if you’re a native of Syracuse…it’s time to crack out the orange tshirts and head to the dome! It’s also homecoming!! Which means extra school spirit!

268. Run or Dye

Remember that Color Me Rad run a few months back? (Has it been that long!??!?)

There’s a Run or Dye coming to Syracuse! October 5th at 9am at OCC!

RunorDye2

Get a chance to run and get covered in bright colors! It might be the last chance of the year to have some fun outside before snow comes!! UGH!

They’ve also partnered with Make-a-Wish foundation, which is another great philanthropy that is near and dear to my heart.

It’s $55 per person, or $50 per person if you have a team (4 or more people). Grab some friends and register here! A lot of people always have so many questions about these runs, like if they’re timed, if they’re super competitive, if they’re going to be permanently dyed neon pink! If you’ve got some questions, click here for some answers.

Tip: If you’re not interested in running, they’re always looking for volunteers!

267. Blood Drive

It’s always really great to be charitable. Especially when there have been so many devastating events in the past few weeks. People all over need help, and giving blood is an easy and rewarding chance to show your support. It just takes a few minutes from your busy schedule to donate some blood. It’s really that simple.

This Wednesday from 12:30-5:30pm at Day Hall on the Syracuse University Campus take a moment to donate some blood.
