Syracuse's annual winter festival is underway with ice skating and drink mix-offs, and the fun will continue until Feb. 24.
The 27th Annual Syracuse Winterfest is bringing members of the Onondaga County community together once again this year. The idea, which was dreamed up by Bill Cooper and volunteers 27 years ago, has now attracted over thousands of people over the years, giving them a taste of what the cities, businesses and people of upstate New York have to offer during the chilly winter months.
Review: Syracuse-based band The Vanderbuilts released "I Wish I Was a Saber-Toothed Tiger" Feb. 14 via their website and YouTube.
"I Wish I Was a Saber Tooth-Tiger" starts out slow and melodic, a guitar progression accompanied by a few plucked banjo notes. But much like its accompanying video, it quickly morphs into something imaginative and upbeat, fluid vocals layered over guitar riffs, piano and violin.
If it's any indication of what's to be expected on The Vanderbuilts' second album, we can expect something great.

The Orange opened up the men's lacrosse season with two exhibition wins against Hofstra and Holy Cross Saturday morning in the Carrier Dome.
Syracuse 15, Hofstra 10
After weeks of practicing with the Syracuse men’s lacrosse team, playing against similar Orange shirts can get a bit repetitive for Derek Maltz.
The junior attackman made good use of his first shot at another team Saturday, netting four goals and an assist to help the Orange hold off Hofstra, 15-10 in the first game of an exhibition series Saturday afternoon at the Carrier Dome.
Founder Seneca Wilson wanted to develop a community in Syracuse to nurture the love and power of spoken word poetry.
Every day, Syracuse University Assistant Director of Recreational Services, Seneca Wilson, coaches basketball at ESF. He checks the gym facilities to make sure everything runs smoothly. He answers phones in his office. When he gets off work, he writes poetry.
Finding the right barber can be difficult and tedious, but some Syracuse students have found the right fit at local shops.
Making the cut. Whether it’s styled short, long, buzzed or any other form imaginable, it’s a skill that’s widely respected.
Men trust their barbers to take the concept of self-expression they desire and make it a reality.
“There’s just a bunch of different elements that go into it, outside of that one quick haircut that you get,” said Dexter McKinney, a graduate student in the public diplomacy program at Syracuse University. “For the most part, if my barber’s not available, I’ll go without a haircut for a while.”
The Orange come out on top against rival Villanova without forward James Southerland, who was ruled out indefinitely because of eligibility issues.
The No. 7 Syracuse men’s basketball team (16-1, 4-0 Big East) held off the Villanova Wildcats (11-5, 2-1 Big East) 72-61 Saturday at the Carrier Dome. The win extended Syracuse’s home winning streak to 34, the longest in the nation.
“I thought this was our grittiest win of the year,” Syracuse head coach Jim Boeheim said. “Everybody just dug in defensively and we couldn’t get anything going offensively.”
James Southerland provided strong bench play to help propel the Orange past the Golden Griffins to remain undefeated on the year.
After a first half that saw the Orange trailing with less than a minute left to play, the Syracuse Orange men's basketball team turned it around in the second half, scoring 50 points en route to an 85-61 victory over Canisius.
