Lights and dinner

Seven of us drove up to Syracuse for Lights on the Lake, Onondaga County's holiday lights display that's arrayed along the lakeside park's narrow roadway. For $8 per car, you get to drive through -- bumper to bumper, around 4mph -- and enjoy the lights, some of which are cleverly "animated." I definitely recommend doing this in an automatic, not a stick shift. All the stop-and-go driving was very tiring for my ankles!

From there, we drove over to [info]Kitty Koynes, an outstanding Irish pub on Armory Square. I had a pint of Smithwick's (an Irish red ale from the makers of Guinness), a cup of excellent onion stout soup, and a traditional Irish breakfast! There was Irish soda bread, the decor is excellent, and the service was very good. This is definitely a place I'll have to get back to.
