Marlo’s Marvelous Adventure

We turned over our @experiencecortland Instagram account over to Marlo Colletto from TC3 to give us her unique perspective on how she experiences Cortland County.
See her posts below!
Marlo Colletto, Tompkins Cortland Community College
? Hello from a hill overlooking Dryden! I’m Marlo Colletto with @tompkinscortland and I’ll be taking over#experiencecortland this week. I can’t wait to show you some of my favorite people and places around Cortland, starting with my employer and alma mater #TompkinsCortland?. I started as a commuter student here in ’07 before earning my Associates and going on to transfer. Now I’ve come full circle, joining the Admissions Office in ’15 and eventually moving into Communications. These days I market the college, its restaurant @coltivareithaca ?, and our @tc3farm ?.
Hello again it’s Marlo from @tompkinscortland and welcome to Day Two of my takeover, or what I call, #CSA pick up day. To really #experiencecortland I believe you have to to taste it. That’s why every Tuesday is marked like a minor holiday on my calendar. It’s the day I stop by the @tc3farmto collect my weekly share of the harvest. As I crunch a carrot on the car ride home I’m already dreaming up my resulting meals. Stay tuned…
Back roads are for singing tunes, scoping scenery, and shopping. There’s no shortage of options when it comes to stocking up on local ??? to go with your CSA veg. Day Three, @tompkinscortlandtakeover of #experiencecortland, Marlo at the wheel.
You can’t beat the friendly faces of the local food scene ?. Mo from @andersonsfarmmarket says hi. Note the @foodandferments cameo ♥️. Local shops support local producers who source from local growers. Just another reason to shop local. @Tompkinscortland takeover. #experiencecortland
One of Cortland’s best kept secrets… You don’t have to leave Main Street to be transported to Lebanon. Tonight I happily share with you one of my very favorite places, a place where plates are always wiped clean with a piece of pita because every little morsel is just that good and where you’re always made to feel like family. Stop in and say hi to Charbel and the crew tell them Marlo sent you. #experiencecortland @tompkinscortland takeover.
You say jeer-oh, I say jai-roh, let’s agree it’s dinner and delicious. @tompkinscortland at @pitagourmet #experiencecortland takeover.
Happy 10th birthday @seedstockfestival! Hey guys, Marlo here as my takeover on behalf of @tompkinscortlandcontinues. This weekend I’ll be chilling at Cortland’s overgrown house-party-turned-music-fest. Come join me! As dusk falls, Root Shock has taken the stage and the party is heating up. Don’t miss the silent disco tomorrow ???. #experiencecortland
There’s only one thing better than a @coffeemania607 pick me up, and that’s realizing at the drive thru you’ve got all 10 punches on the card. FREE is the best flavor. #experiencecortland takeover. -Marlo from @tompkinscortland
Checking out the @culturalcouncil Arts and Wine Festival and Main Street beverage trail because as overheard from a passerby, “Wine is like duct tape, it fixes everything.” Happy Saturday ya’ll, Marlo here taking a little time to see my city with fresh eyes as I share it’s sights with you. #experiencecortland takeover.
Don’t mind if I do… Treating this takeover like hosting an out of town guest. Making the rounds to all the must-sees and the @finger_lakes_tasting_room is always a win on the itinerary. Best place to #drinklocal#tasteny and #experiencecortland.
Seedstock night two, noshing on a tasty pulled pork sandwich from local chef and @tompkinscortland grad Kate Icenogle as the @theunknownwoodsmen rock the stage and the first stars come out ??. #experiencecortland takeover -Marlo
Easy like Sunday morning ?☕… marking the last day of my takeover with brunch at @brixpix607 and coffee at @bru_64. A night of silent disco sure works up an appetite. #experiencecortland takeover -Marlo
Somehow only seems right to sign off with a post in the #Truxtonhills where I grew up. On behalf of @tompkinscortland community college and my #experiencecortland takeover, this is Marlo wishing you all happy trails till our paths cross again. Thanks for sharing in the bounty of our county with me. It sure has made me grateful for the place I call home.
