It’s a sunny day in Syracuse this morning.

But make sure to make to bring your umbrella as thunderstorms approach this afternoon.

Exhale Café and Bakeshop is opening another shop in Syracuse in partnership with Petite Nosh food truck.

Head Barista Micky DiCamillo says that the diversity will make this a better environment.

“The business itself is run by a queen woman of color. A lot of people who work at the cafe as well are queer and I think especially in this area we really want to uplift people like me, people like Maria you know who work. We really want exhale to be a safe space.”

Now that’s not the only food truck gaining popularity in Syracuse.

Look out for Johnny Gee’s Barbeque and Catering Services at the Jazz Festival.

John H. Giles owns the business and now works with his longtime friend Joyce Burwell. Giles says Burwell puts in a lot of effort into his business.

“I basically just fry his wings, and his fish and his fries, and make sure food goes out timely to the customers, so it’s like a teamwork.”

While enjoying your Johnny Gee’s Barbeque you can listen to musicians like Ricky Alexander at the Jazz Festival.

Alexander says he enjoys the youth’s appreciation of jazz.

“It’s kinda cool to see, you know, a song like “It’s been a long long time” or some of these very classic songs. They are finally getting the chance to stand the test of time.”
