  1. Your route? Or will it be driven by suggestions here?

    1. everything is possible: definetly open to suggestions.

      1. If you take 81 north to the Thruway, Syracuse offers Dinosaur Barbecue, Heid's (hotdogs, actually in Liverpool), and a variety of places on Westcott St. not too far from 90.

        If you're taking 90 into MA, there's a Peruvian and a Vietnamese restaurant in Lee.

        1. re: sr44

          Heids is great, and the Hoffman Hotdogs and Coneys(white dog/weiswurst) are a legend !!!!

        2. By all means help michaelwild with chow suggestions along his route, but hotel recommendations are off-topic. Thanks.

          1. Cafe Madison in Albany, NY, (on Madison Ave. near College of St. Rose) has an outstanding breakfast/brunch menu and is definitely NOT chain.
