Eastwood Gems : Taste Of Philadelphia and Books & Melodies

Eastwood got its name from it’s general location, just east of the city of Syracuse.  

Known for its tight community vibe, “a village Within a City”, Eastwood’s main strip of James Street has some awesome local spots. 

Today, I had time to check out a couple of them.  

First up, Taste of Philadelphia.  Very similar to Geno’s in Fayetteville and North Syracuse, just set back 15 years with it’s dilapidated booths and old style menu. They serve up authentic Philly Cheese Steaks on freshly delivered Hoagie rolls.

This place reeks of Philadelphia pop culture.  With it’s Rocky boxing  gloves, McNabb Jersey, and movie posters.  The food is really good but I do prefer the more modern Gino’s that I mentioned earlier.  

I love when businesses display their first $ earned

Next up, Books & Melodies.  I mean what can I say, who doesn’t love to see a local  used book and record shop survive and thrive in the day and age.  Full of all genres of books, records, movies, and cds definitely worth a glance.

I was near the end of 2016 when I realized that my life was totally out of balance. I was 30 and I was working my life away. I did not have strong relationships with my wife, family, or friends. It was around this time that I came across THE HAPPINESS PROJECT by Gretchen Rubin. It was then that I decided to launch my own year long project towards personal happiness for the entire year of 2017.
