THEY SELL SPIEDIES
It's a small city, in the Southern Tier of NYState.
Oh, let's say, above Scranton, PA, and east of Elmira,
NY. Self-Destructo IBM was founded there, and from
Binghamton to Waverly, the Soviets used to have it
nuclear targeted for take-down early, in the event of
a war. So much for peace, love, and understanding.
It's also known as the 'carousel capitol,' I think only
because they still have like 6 antique carousels in
operation around the varied city parks. Cool enough.
Maybe the Reds were jealous of that. And, as I noted,
all around the city, famous as 'their' cuisine and treat,
they sell 'spiedies.' It's a sort of cubed, diced meat
of pork or chicken or lamb, I think (all from memory
now : never touch the stuff) long-marinated in an
Italian dressing, and scooped into a big soft roll.
The word comes from the Italian word meaning
spit - the long rod the meat is slowly cooked on.
I like the carousels better.
