Coming Back for Seconds, Second City, State Theatre, Ithaca Second City Comes to Ithaca’s State Theatre As a kid, I loved when my parents threw parties. Nothing big, maybe 3-4 couples.

Take a Bite Out of Autumn…it’s Apple Festival Time (Ithaca Blog) The Apple Harvest Festival and Other Good Stuff in the Ithaca Area An apple a day keeps the doctor away. If this was true, I’d be rather sickly I imagine. Or a hypochondriac. Or simply a waiting room lurker reading year old Prevention and [...]

The History Center of Tompkins County Things to Do in the Ithaca Area in September and October History is wasted on children. They just don’t get it, or at least I didn’t. All I took from a family vacation to “Historic Williamsburg” was my first taste of pecan pie. While I’m still a little bitter [...]

Tiohero Tours of Ithaca Being sick is never fun, but I must confess, as a kid, during the school year, it certainly had its perks. The first and most obvious of course was the lack of homework.
