When Bill La Fleur decided it was time to open up a second restaurant, he enlisted the aid of his favorite chef in the world—his wife, Karen. Karen donned the chef’s hat and took charge of the restaurant’s kitchen, designing a menu of Italian and American dishes that have since been lauded by reporters from the Post-Standard. The skilled chef showers pasta in housemade sauces and hand rubs premium steaks in piquant, robust seasonings. To craft her old-fashioned fish-fry special, Karen breads fresh haddock before plating the crispy fillets alongside nests of fries and coleslaw.

Customers await meals out in the lively dining room, sipping glasses of fine wine and nibbling on freshly baked italian bread. Soft hanging lamps and the glow of televisions bathe the room in warmth. Throughout the month, the restaurant plays host to live-music performances and energetic parties celebrating everything from Christmas to moon landings.

Awarded Best Martial Arts School in the Family Times' 2012 Besties Awards, Five Star Martial Arts teaches kids and parents alike the rapid-fire movements of martial arts. During youth programs, students aged 4 and older build stamina, dexterity, and intelligence through disciplined instruction at the hands of seasoned masters. Alongside typical belt rankings, badges and stars reward younger students as they master flurries of kicks and punches. Adult students find their own fitness rewards during cardio kickboxing, which blends an international potpourri of martial arts moves with calisthenic and aerobic foundations to form an explosive full-body workout that targets and tones major muscle groups across the body.

Trainers pair their fitness expertise with motivational attitudes, working one on one with students to help them on their path towards achieving personal wellness goals. Classes unfold within Five Star Martial Arts' recently expanded studio. There, new equipment and installations including a Tumbl Trak, a massive foam pit, and a collection of polyplus climbing ropes help trainers add complex gymnastics-inspired exercises to their already sizable arsenal of workouts.

Nestled in Syracuse’s historic Armory Square district, PJ’s Pub and Grill’s unpretentious atmosphere belies the filet mignon sizzling in its kitchen. Patrons can slice into gourmet beef cuts and other upscale dinner entrees, such as a sesame-crusted tuna and portobello-stuffed ravioli, as games unfold on the eatery’s big-screen TVs. Alternatively, diners can opt for bar-style eats, which complement a bar-sized selection of wine, beer and shots. Dishes range from shepherd’s pie and grilled paninis to burgers, such as the Southwestern, crowned in pepper jack cheese and onion straws. A daily rotation of lunch and happy-hour specials adds an element of surprise to the dining experience, much like finding a winning lottery ticket in your date's wallet, and groups can retire to a choice of two brick-walled banquet halls for private celebrations.
