EAST SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — While it may not be as big as the one in Downtown Syracuse, Wednesday night’s Taste of East Syracuse was just as delicious.
There was a lot to choose from, like chicken riggies, clams, pizza and sundaes, neighbors got to enjoy the specialities of local restaurants.
NewsChannel 9’s own Christie Casciano has the tough task of being a celebrity judge for the chef contest that pitted East Syracuse’s mayor, Robert Tackman, against Wegmans chef Brian Morey.
“Everyone kinda considers this the midpoint of summer. We just consider this summer. We just want to have this opportunity to have people come out, enjoy the best of East Syracuse, have some food, mingle, talk and get to know the neighbors,” Tackman said.
This year’s winner was none other than Mayor Tackman. He’s won seven years in a row!
