Downtown Explorer

Start your day off the right way with brunch at Oh My Darling. Pair some bubbly with the Lemon Ricotta Pancakes or check out Original Grain for some freshness from one of their smoothie bowls. From there spend some time exploring the downtown area, and pop into a few shops to pick up a new outfit for later in the day or other wedding festivities. Stop into Showoffs Boutique for the newest accessories and cute attire, or book a Sip and Shop event at Gypsy Freedom and stock up on looks to complete your wardrobe. In need of something for the guys, head over to Mr. Shop for some upscale menswear. Don’t forget to leave some time for pampering. Stop into Pure Salon for nails or facials or rent out The Emerson and schedule a hair or makeup sess. Looking for a bit of activity on your big day? Stop into FHITT Barre and Bodyworks for a workout class to get you ready for the big day! Or enjoy a few drinks while you get in your exercise with the Syracuse Pedal Tours. With enough room for 13 people this allows you to cycle your way to a specified number of area bars. After all that exercise you’re sure to be hungry. Enjoy one of Syracuse’s most popular restaurants, Pastabilities and be sure to get some of their Spicy Tomato Oil! Or try out on of downtown’s newer restaurants, Margarita’s Mexican Cantina for some classic Mexican fare and of course margarita towers. Not ready to end the day?
