If you've ever felt the burden of needing to decide what you want to eat before heading out to dinner, you're not alone. But, if things continue to progress the way they seem, that won't be a problem for Syracuse residents next year.

The Salt City Market is scheduled to open in the fall of 2020, offering a food hall with culinary options as diverse as the city itself. On this episode of The 315, Joe Lee and Kevin Kloss chat with Market Manager, Adam Sudmann and two potential venders about how the food hall could impact the Syracuse area. 


Some of us have spent enough time around Central New York that we can practically go about our everyday routines in our sleep. But what is life like in Syracuse for someone who is brand new to the area?

This week on The 315,  Joe Lee and Kevin Kloss try to answer some of those questions  as they chat with Lydia Knox, Meteorologist at CNY Central. She's been in town for less than six months and offers a true newcomer's perspective. Listen and be reminded about some of wonderful aspects of Syracuse that perhaps we take for granted. 

There's a lot that goes into the makeup of any city. When we stop to think about the city of Syracuse a diverse array of cultures should hopefully come to mind. This week on The 315 Joe Lee and Kevin Kloss chat with Victoria Coit, Founder and Director of Operations and Business Development for Cuse Culture.  

The three chat about how the organization hopes to impact the culture of Syracuse, how they're encouraging local young professionals and about their upcoming festival.

This weekend we will say good bye to 2017 and welcome in a brand new year. And with that many of us will look to achieve new goals. Lose weight, travel outside the country, maybe even spend more time in the kitchen.
