Funk N' Waffles

The stage at Funk 'N Waffles Downtown served as both a musical and political platform to raise awareness about the Dakota Access Pipeline Wednesday night.

Sounds of solidarity could be heard all night long from the corner of South Clinton and West Fayette Street in downtown Syracuse. The source? Funk ‘N Waffles. The event? A fundraiser for the Standing Rock Water Protectors in North Dakota.

Donation drives and benefit concerts create ways for locals to support the water protectors against the Dakota Access Pipeline.

In front of the Schine Student Center last week, a group of Syracuse University students held signs that read “Celebrate Indigenous Survival,” “No DAPL” and “We Stand with Standing Rock!” They were waiting for the university to formally announce its recognition of Indigenous People’s Day on campus and spent the morning raising awareness about the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL).

New downtown location looks to book bigger bands and add alcohol to the menu alongside famous waffles.

The popular Marshall Street diner, Funk N’ Waffles, is opening up a new location downtown in Armory Square. The new venue plans to serve alcohol and bring more live music into town, but will try to stay family-oriented.

There is also no exact date for the opening yet, owner Adam Gold says.

“I have never done anything like that before, I am unsure about the date,” he said.
