The Baxter strives to bring you an experience like no other bar in the Triangle, with its nerd-chic atmosphere and fifty vintage, all-original arcade games. The Baxter Boys spent months hunting down some of the biggest titles from the arcade industry’s golden age, between the years of 1978 and 1998.

To add to the atmosphere and ever growing arcade selection, the Baxter offers the best in local beers and micro brews, plus a great selection of liquor and wine. The Baxter has all the favorites, from PBR Tall Boys to their most favored specialty drink: the “She-Hulk”.

In short, The Baxter offers you a chance to relive your childhood all the while enjoying adult libations with your friends and family. Can you make it on our legendary high score board? Come and find out!

Wizarding Weekend

Wizarding Weekend

When the Whomping Willows that line the Cayuga Lake Inlet were turning gold with autumn, a magical festival was born in Downtown Ithaca. Gabe, an employee at Boxy Bikes and his younger brother (Aiden) hatched the idea to transform Press Bay Alley into Diagon Alley for trick or treating; of course, everyone at Press Bay loved the idea, as it is already a place filled with whimsy and wonder.

What no one knew at that time was how inspiring the Harry Potter universe would be! Within days the event went viral online and thousands of people RSVP’d. This was not going to be a quaint trick or treat for a few dozen kids: families and fans from hours around wanted to come to Ithaca for a magical escape.

Quickly, Darlynne Overbaugh of Life’s So Sweet Chocolates, Bill Overbaugh of Ehrhart Energy, Laurence Clarkberg of Boxy Bikes, and John Guttridge of Press Bay Alley got to work. They brought Cornell University’s Raptor Club, a Flying Ford Anglia, and myriad vendors, performers and volunteers to downtown Ithaca–all with only days to sculpt a truly magical world, because by this time, MTV and national news outlets had picked up the story. More than 8,000 people were planning to attend.

When the big day arrived, no one quite knew what would happen. People arrived in outlandish costumes, their enthusiasm and their love of Harry Potter creating a community instantly. Local business owners rolled with the situation creating interesting products for guests to purchase. The Downtown Ithaca Alliance and volunteers pitched in to help. Wizarding duels, dragons, magic, owls, wizard chess, and wands truly enchanted Press Bay Alley for a day. Visitors received acceptance letters to Hogwarts, found their Houses, traversed the downtown in search of Horcruxes, and teams fought it out in a bicycle-based quidditch bout. Downtown Ithaca was giddily transformed into a magical world.

In the end, it was the imagination of people who brought out the magic in Ithaca. And it will happen again this October.

"Tidewater Comicon is the brainchild of founder Mike Federali who wanted to see a local comic book convention become a reality so bad he sold his entire comic book collection at garage sales, flea markets (and even on AMC’s Comic Book Men) to make the show possible. The first show was a one day hotel show with an over capacity crowd. Fans gathered, met creators, had a blast, and left with only one complaint.. More Space!

 

Thanks to the yard sales, fundraisers, Tidewater Comicon moved to the Virginia Beach Convention Center where it has continued to grow each year in space and attendance. In 2016, following an impressive Kickstarter campaign, the show reached it’s highest attendance so far with 23,000 fans."
