The Cheerleaders and Dance squads can bring food into the Theater.

Below are some places for everyone to eat, if anyone choses to leave for lunch> many of the places are within walking distance to the Stanley. Swifty’s and Ancora are the Stanley’s neighbors.

Swifty’s is right next to the Stanley

You can view their menu on this site.

Also on the other side of the theater is Ancora. It is a more upscale Italian restaurant. Nice place…excellent food.

If anyone wants to venture out, there are several cute places going north on Genesee St.

• Bite Bakery….
• Utica Bread…
• Utica Coffee Roasting…
• Bella Regina….

(Within walking distance of the theater)
If you have people staying at Fairfield and Hampton and Holiday Express….there is a Denny’s
and a cute breakfast place not too far from there called Top O’ the Morning’

There is also another nice steak house, which has good Italian food as well called Delmonico’s.

The girls do not come in at the main entrance so if you are looking at the building (see bad drawing below)…

If you have someone who is disabled please do not have them try to get up the stairs…there is an elevator. Have them come in the spectator entrance them turn right once they are in the building and go into the lobby where the cheerleaders are coming in. There is a ramp and an elevator for them to use.
