Village businesses buzzing this summer

— BTW, bandleader Eddie Zacholl proudly plugged the Big Ed Special which is served at Liverpool’s American Diner, which co-sponsored Wednesdays’ Liverpool Is The Place concert. Restaurateur Mike Tassone named the fried bologna special after Eddie late dad, Big Ed Zacholl.

“Everybody’s Neighborhood,” indeed!

Mini-Golf tees off

The Syracuse Area Kickball Association has some company at its multi-field venue at 7192 Oswego Road (Route 57), just north of the village.

Promising putters are lining up to shoot holes-in-one at Liverpool Mini-Golf. Duffers will find the illuminated course open late into the evenings. Give L’pool Mini-Golf a buzz at 457-5425.

White Water hours

The printers’ devil burned me last week when I listed the hours of operation at the new White Water Pub, at 110 S. Willow St. The correct hours are 11 a.m. to 2 a.m. daily.

That’s 13 hours of fun, fuddle and food!

Hungry hot-rodders

The area’s eateries and inns enjoyed the influx of vintage-vehicle fanatics during the annual Syracuse Nationals last weekend. While most of the activity took place at the State Fairgrounds, gawkers also filled lawn chairs along Seventh North Street and Electronics Parkway on Friday and Saturday nights to applaud an endless parade of souped-up hot rods.

Eventually both the drivers and the spectators got hungry.

“We counted about 20 [vintage] cars here on Saturday,” said Gardenview Diner co-owner John Ionnidis. “Then we had quite a few people from the Nationals here for breakfast on Sunday on their way out of town.”

That jingle in the cash register wasn’t the only thing the Nationals left in their wake. A discarded tire tread sat discarded next to a Ron Paul for President sign at the corner of Old Liverpool Road and Electronics Parkway.

Café expands to Camillus

The Café at 407 has expended its operation from Liverpool into Camillus. Tony Burrows is operating 407’s “Café West” inside the lobby at Medical Center West, on the second floor at 5700 West Genesee St., in Camillus.

Here at Café at 407 at Ophelia’s Place, 407 Tulip St., our favorite barista is the outgoing and upbeat Rebecca Van Cott. Just don’t call her Becky!
