A long time ago in a year I shall not mention (honestly because I am not sure), I started a blog...my first blog which was called The Big Orange Bloggers. It was mostly about Syracuse sports but occasionally I would blog about local events and places. I was living in NC at the time and it was so great to be back when I could that I always came back here for vacations and I usually wanted to share my excitement and my experiences. I knew one day I would move back and now that I am and have started up this site, I wanted to revisit a poem I wrote about Tully's Good Times.
My love for Tully's became a running joke in a way on social media because it was a mix of SU sports and good food and I always looked forward to my visits there. Truth is, my first couple visits, I got a cheesesteak but after a bit, someone told me they were famous for their Tully's Tenders and thus began my obsession (though now I am also on a Mountain Melt Burger kick lately too). I even once had a bad experience there that I handled incorrectly but due to the attention of my friends on Twitter and Tully's themselves, we rectified the situation and how to handle my frustrations in a better manner than on social media.
Tully's is one of those businesses in the Syracuse area that many miss when they leave and love to visit often, especially on game days. The food is good yet simple, the popcorn at the table is a good idea and the multiple TV's help you stay up with all the games going on.
I now present my short poem and ode to Tully's titled "Tully's Be Like Heaven On Earth". :)
Tully's Be Like Heaven On Earth
Tully's, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
And share why I look forward to you every single day.
I walk inside and Syracuse history on walls all around.
Like a dream man cave with TV's and surround sound.
Free popcorn on the table and drink orders placed too.
Done with work so I ordered some cold Labatts Blue.
The choice of what to eat requires little brain matter.
"Please bring me a delicious Tully's Tender Platter."
Ah, those tenders which are prepared to perfection.
One bite and you will feel an immediate satisfaction.
It will melt in your mouth and never in your hand.
It's the best value for your money on air, sea or land.
And if it proves to be too much for one meal to eat.
Take the rest home and lunch tomorrow is complete.
So stop in for yourself and get your money's worth.
And you will see, Tully's be like Heaven On Earth!
