Results from each regional bracket, the Final Four and ultimate champion of "Pulled Into Syracuse's 2011 Wing Tournament" will be crowned in coming weeks!
Our newest contributor, Josef Lorenz, first blipped onto our radar when we stumbled on his blog
Pulled Into Syracuse
, which details and rates his experiences at Syracuse-area restaurants.
His fair and thorough reviews are the reason our list of places to check is constantly growing. With this wealth of fun foodie knowledge at our fingertips, we had to find a way to share it with readers.
So beginning this week, Josef will contribute a bi-weekly column to The Eagle of the same name as his blog.
A Baldwinsville native, Josef studied music performance at Ithaca College then moved to Boston. When he returned to Syracuse, he noticed a lack of information about local eateries and decided to launch a blog remedying that.
"Since starting the blog, I've discovered many great restaurants that were previously unknown to me even though I grew up in the area," Josef says.
Josef makes his home in downtown Syracuse and works remotely for a Boston-based company. He also performs on the local music scene.
The name was loosely inspired by The Band's song, "The Weight," says Joe.
"And also by the fact that I grew up in the area and moved away, only to rediscover that I love living here," he adds.
