This weekend, we coordinated a large-scale spring cleaning of North Salina Street in participation with the Syracuse’s Clean Up ‘Cuse! Over 100 volunteers showed up to pick up litter, weed, and remove brush. Thanks to all the organizations, volunteers, property and business owners that made this event possible!
More photos from the day can be found on our Facebook page.
Though it’s actually tomorrow, we wish our boss and dear friend the happiest of birthdays!
Call for mentors!
Written by admin • April 10, 2014
We are looking for a team of advisors to provide guidance and support to our seven ‘UP Start Syracuse’ entrepreneurs. Mentors are not required to have started their own business, but need to feel comfortable providing productive expertise and insight around topics relevant to starting and sustaining a new business. If this is something you would like to be a part of, please contact Sarah Pallo at firstname.lastname@example.org or (315) 299-8228 x 17!

Last month, Attilio’s Restaurant and Bar participated in the Meatball Madness contest to benefit the Elmcrest Children’s Center and was voted People’s Choice for Best Meatball. Attilio’s competed against other CNY-based eateries, including Canale’s Restaurant, Marriotts at Armory Square, the Palace Theater, and Santangelo’s Restaurant. Attilio’s broke the news Monday with a post on their Facebook: “Thank you all who voted Attilio’s #1 at March Meatball Madness!”

Tomorrow is the deadline for volunteers to register for Clean Up ‘Cuse: North Salina Street. Our Northside team will focus on the 300-900 blocks along the corridor, with special emphasis on litter pickup and weeding of green spaces, triangle parks, parking lots, and sidewalks.
All of our volunteers will meet at the Pocket Park located at 730 North Salina Street, across from Biscotti’s Cafe, on the morning of April 12. Before the cleanup begins, participants will sign-in, receive assignments for the day, and enjoy free coffee and donuts provided by Dunkin’ Donuts.

Last month, Aaron Metthe, owner of Salt City Coffee and one of our UP Start Entrepreneurs, brewed his locally-roasted coffee and loose leaf teas for those participating in the Heart Walk at Onondaga Community College. He sold over 150 cups of coffee and over 3 dozen cups of tea, garnering new customers and support for his business idea: a café that creates an immersive coffee experience while serving fair trade, earth-friendly, and locally roasted coffee.
From their profits, Salt City Coffee donated $281 to the American Heart Association. ”Seeing people rally together to solve problems and work towards solutions is why I love being part of these events,” Aaron explains.
His coffee and teas are available for purchase via his website and in-person at Side Hill Farmers (315 Fayette Street in Manlius). Follow Salt City Coffee on Facebook here.
