Turkey Joints get their name from their unique design. The Original Turkey Joints have a silvery sugar coating with a center filled with rich chocolate and brazilnuts. People who leave Central New York constantly order these online throughout the holiday season.

Schultz & Dooley Beer Steins


Every winter around the holidays the F.X. Matt Brewing Company unveils their new beer steins. People rush to the stores to pick one up for that special loved one. I know growing up we always had to make sure we bought my Grandma one. Meet the 2012 Schultz & Dooley beer steins- Porter Penguin And Maltcracker Nutcracker.

Now you don’t even have to leave the house to get the great taste of O’scugnizzo Pizza. Have it sent directly to your door through the online O’scugnizzo shipping service. They will ship a pizza to anyone, anywhere in the continental U.S. Now relax it isn’t a hot pizza that turns bad, they send you a bake-at-home pizza with the toppings of your choice, ready for the oven. All you have to do is bake it, sauce it, cut it, and eat it. NOTE: Orders must be received by 12/18 for delivery by Christmas.

Utica College Hockey T-Shirt

Next time they go to the Aud don’t let them wear that boring t-shirt, let them show their UC Hockey Pride. This T-Shirt will get them smiling, and it’s really affordable too. You can pick this gem up for a smooth $16.

Star Membership Inside The Presenter’s Circle

The only way you could make the shows at the Stanley Theater better for them is to give them the gift of the A-list treatment. Joining The Presenter’s Circle will give them extra access, personal service and that little bit of “I’m with the band swagger”. Get more info on memberships by Clicking Here.

Membership To Swifty’s Mug Club

Jay S/Swifty’s Restaurant & Pub

At Swifty’s Restaurant & Pub in Utica you can sign him up for the Mug Club. This Mug Club gives him a mug up on the bar wall, and it gives him happy hour prices at any time he walks into Swifty’s. The best part, it’s a one time fee of $45 dollars, and it transfers to the other Swifty’s locations in Indian Lake, Delmar, and of course here in Utica.


We opened our phone lines and you called up.

Here’s what else we would add to our list:

Registration To The Boilermaker
