Downtown Binghamton Restaurants Prepare For Increased Foot Traffic During Luma Weekend

Posted: Updated:

Between Luma and Blues On The Bridge, thousands of people are expected to make their way into downtown Binghamton this weekend. Preparing for the influx of foot traffic, downtown restaurants have all hands on deck. 

The Lost Dog Cafe says for the past five years, Luma weekend has been a crowded one for both their restaurant and lounge. 

"The chefs are cooking, all the line guys are getting things ready, the bartenders are getting things ready for their specials," says Nicole Howard, Catering manager at the Lost Dog.

Howard says it all starts with a large dinner crowd and a steady flow continues throughout the night with people stopping in for snacks and drinks.

"It's a huge event for downtown businesses," says Howard, "So many people come into town."

The Lost Dog is also getting in on the fun tonight, hosting a silent disco starting at 11:30 pm, after Luma wraps up for the night.
