Generally, the only time Binghamton makes headlines is when there is a notable run of bad weather — absurd amounts of snow or nearly Biblical levels of flooding. (A friend who made it through 2006’s deluge said that he only realized they weren’t hopelessly screwed when CNN sent a reporter other than Anderson Cooper.)
So, I was very excited to open my RSS feeds today and find this headline: Spiedie Fest This Weekend in Upstate New York. Unfortunately, I’m not heading home until next weekend, so I’ll miss the big event, but you can bet I’ll be feasting on spiedies at some point (or points) during my visit.
Now, I suppose that Serious Eats is technically not as fancy as being on CNN, but I’ll take good news about the Southern Tier wherever I can get it.
