Tales from the Tailgates: WVU vs. Syracuse

Posted:
MORGANTOWN -

A staple of game day in Syracuse is a stop at Dinosaur Bar-B-Que for some of the finest ribs you'll ever sink your teeth into. It's a fun environment in what they call a honky tonk bar that fills up with fans of both the hometown Orange and whoever happens to be visiting the Carrier Dome that weekend.

This weekend, it's WVU fans flocking to the establishment to stuff their faces before watching the Mountaineers make what may well be their last football appearance in the Dome for quite some time with Cuse leaving the Big East for the ACC.

While shooting for Tales from the Tailgates, we came across the Crums. Michael and Erin, newlyweds, decided to make the WVU game a part of their honeymoon experience and in doing so, they planned a stop at Dinosaur.

Here's to the happy couple, now let me get back to my own rack of ribs and chili, and we'll see you right back here after the game.
