Michael Carter-Williams makes his case

Shout out to former Orangeman Michael Carter-Williams who produced a stat stuffer supreme tonight with 22 points, 9 rebounds, 12 assists and 9 steals. MCW’s 76ers defeated the defending champion Miami Heat. The steals mark set an NBA rookie debut record.

Rent the Runway: Syracuse

Rent the Runway Fall Fashion Show, Syracuse

Bravo to the students at Syracuse University for staging an effective and efficient fashion show for the Rent the Runway (RTR) program last week.  The concept was to promote renting versus retail, or to simply find it, book it, wear it, and return it.

The festivities were held at Stolkin Auditorium (Physics Building).

Instead of opting for a trunk show the organizers were bold enough to convince the student models to meander down the curved stairs toward the front of the auditorium.  Despite the degree of difficulty, the execution was flawless.

And oh yes, my daughter was a big fan of the gift bag from L’Oreal Paris.

Centro's SU to Destiny Route

Centro’s SU to Destiny Route: Congestive Headway Failure

Check out this recent post on Syracuse Urban Properties (aka Syrup) about using a trolley or tram to bring visitors from DestiNY USA to downtown.  We are in favor of that scenario, and would also recommend reviving OnTrack service through the city.

Anyone who’s ridden Centro’s jam-packed SU-Destiny Route on a Friday evening would agree. OnTrack would certainly be beneficial during any construction or demolition of Route I81.

DBR from Syracuse in Focus on Vimeo.

Composer Daniel Bernard Roumain, aka DBR, is part of a new collective of musicians (think DJ Spooky and Dr. Dre) who push the envelope and explore uncharted territory, forge historic collaborations, and basically are re-writing the rules of what it means to be a performer/producer and artist.

Roumain talked to us before his performance at the Community Folk Art Center’s series exploring music from the African Diaspora.

We read a story this week that County Executive Joanie Mahoney is being talked about as a candidate for Lt. Governor for New York.  She is pictured her from almost 10 years ago during a candidate forum held at the Galleries on South Salina Street.
