Yes, Easter Sunday is a holy day, but it's also a festive one, as the annual Easter Parade and Easter Bonnet Festival proves. New Yorkers love to don outlandish costumes, and this yearly march affords the creatively inclined an opportunity to do just that. While some marchers kept it simple (towering flowered hats, steampunk-inspired costumes), others went all-out: Witness a reveler in full Michael Jackson regalia, or the many costumed pets that accompanied their masters.

Marshall Street Bar & Restaurant
Syracuse alumni will find a taste of home at Marshall Street Bar and Restaurant in Midtown East. With more than a dozen TVs and drink specials for both Syracuse and NFL games, it’s a convenient spot to catch the big game. Not a big sports fan? Start a game of pool, try your hand at skee-ball or sink a few quarters into one of the other arcade games in the bar. Order something off the massive menu of gameday favorites, like loaded nachos ($10.99), pulled pork or beef sliders ($10.99) or mozzarella sticks ($8.49). The real draw, though, is the wings (six for $9, twelve for $17, a bucket of 50 for $60). Order buffalo or boneless wings doused in sauce ranging from “mild” to “abusive” to “suicidal”, or stick to gentler flavors like teriyaki and garlic-parmesan. Vegetarians won’t be left out, either: Marshall Street also serves soy wings for those so inclined ($12.99).
Venue says: “Syracuse sports games, authentic Buffalo Wings, or locally brewed New York beers, we're proud to call Marshall Street the home for it all!”
