We stopped off at a restaurant – Aqua Vino – in Utica, NY — the boat was parked off the Mohawk river on the high wall at the restaurant — for only $47/night!! We had lunch which was Hot Ringlets (Famous in Utica) and a great salad.
Our waitress, Lindsey, worked for her uncle (the owner of Aqua Vino) — she told us about 2 other places that her uncle owned 1) Babes – a restaurant/bar, and 2) Kookies Creamery — we tried them both and it was a great start to our walk around Utica.
We met Tina at Aqua Vinos, and she told us to go to the Celtic Harp where they would have a great band. Unfortunately the band cancelled due to a big storm the night before.
We did see Tina at Celtic Harp and took a picture with her. We ended the night at Tavolo’s Italian Restaurant on the way back to the boat.
