10 Essential Things Utica Can’t Live Without Any Longer
Utica has plenty - from the Stanley Theater to the Utica Comets, to restaurants, bars and shopping. But there are a few things missing from Utica. Here are 10 things we need to bring to the city.
The closest Dairy Queen locations are in Rochester and Albany. We need something closer, and I think Utica is the perfect place
I'm not talking about a full amusement park (although I wouldn't argue with that idea). But one rollercoaster, crossing the city - well, that would be pretty awesome!
Jet's Pizza is a Michigan classic, but it needs to come to New York - so why not open one up in Utica? I talked with an owner of Jet's Pizza when I went to Michigan for a visit and he explained why Jet's is so great and why it needs to be everywhere.
We have the Munson Williams Proctor Arts Institution and the Oneida County Historical Society, but how about a little hands-on fun. I think we need a science museum in the city, like two days ago!
I don't even know where to go to race my friends on a go-kart track, and that's all I really want to do. If we get one in Utica... well, then the problem is solved.
There was one in Port Huron, Michigan called Mavericks. It was just a little place where they would hold small poker tournaments, and cash games. It was tons of fun, and I would love to see that idea brought here.
I hear there once was one in Utica. I wonder what happened to it. Can we bring it back? Please?
Or one of those stress-relief rooms - either way. We need an area to get away for a bit, and relax, especially with how busy Central New York life can get.
Syracuse has a Dave & Buster's, so why can't we have one? Maybe one that's walking distance from my house - that would be perfect!
I have never been to a drive-in theater. I heard Rome had one quite a few years ago. I'm thinking this is something that needs to be in Utica. How cool would that be?!
