Back to Zeina’s!

I went to lunch today at Zeina’s Cafe in Utica.  Regular readers may remember that I went there on Saturday to participate in their fundraiser for the Lebanon Red Cross, in support of relief for that horrible blast.  I LOVE Middle Eastern food, so I decided to treat myself to a little more.

Yum!

Utica is challenging these days, due to all the construction.  I got lost both coming and going.  Full disclosure: I may not have gotten lost on the way there if I had not tried to be on the right side of the street to park.  Quite unexpectedly,  I succeeded.

Again I say, yum!

I ordered a falafel gyro and unsweetened tea.  I was surprised at the size of the sandwich.  I was even more surprised by my ability to eat the whole thing! Usually I bring half my lunch home, but this was so good, I just kept eating.

There was a lot more on the menu I’d like to try.  I brought home a take out menu, so I can plan ahead.  They also offer catering, so I could have some wonderful food at my next gathering.

Zeina’s is located at  607 Varick St., Utica, NY, phone number 315-738-0279.  They are open 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wednesday,  11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday through Saturday.

 

Two Cafes, One Pub, Good Saurday

There was not a whole lot of scatter to my Saturday, by I hope enough to warrant a blog post.

First my friend, Kim, and I went to Zeina’s Cafe in Uitca for lunch.  They were doing a fundraiser for the Red Cross of Lebanon, in aid of the recent horrendous explosion.  They were donating 50% of profits, addition to collecting any donations patrons cared to make.

It is a really good place to eat.

They were doing a HUGE business.  I must return under more normal circumstances.

Next we went to the So Sweet Candy Cafe.  How could I be so close and not stop in?

This is an old picture,  but I neglected to take any pictures today.

Next we went to the End Zone Pub and Grub in Herkimer.  We enjoyed a couple drinks and more snacks.

Also an older picture, but here is my lovely friend Kim.

I also neglected to take any pictures at the End Zone.  So sue me.  The above is a shot of an earlier occasion,  obviously during cooler temperatures.

I came home and sat down to watch movies with my hubby, who had declined to join us.

I’d scream too!

House on Haunted Hill was on of our selections.  We are continuing our evening with other cheesy movies, I hope.  Perhaps I will write about them on Cinema Sunday.  As always, I hope you’ll stay tuned.
