FIRST LOOK: FOR KOREAN FOOD, HAVE A WAY TO CORTLAND: Yori House is a new Korean restaurant in Cortland that debuted at the local farmer’s market in 2017. Last year, owners Peter and Lee Han bought a former bar on the corner of Elm and Pomeroy streets, but Covid-19 left them forced to open as a take-out restaurant only. Their loyal market customers followed them in droves. The Hans finally opened their dining room a few weeks ago, offering dishes such as shiitake mushroom rolls (top left), bulgogi (top right) and kimchi pasta (center) . Here’s what you can expect on a visit. (Picture Charlie Miller)

What is the trend

Abandoned by most party leaders, can Cuomo survive? Governor Andrew Cuomo faces the biggest threat of his political life – and he’s not backing down. The Democrat’s sexual harassment and misconduct denials may not be enough to save his career, or even allow him to complete his third term. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer and even President Joe Biden have called for his resignation. Can Cuomo survive when all the top Democrats abandon him?

Covid-19: More New York counties meet CDC guidelines for indoor masks: According to federal guidelines, more New York counties are seeing enough transmission of Covid-19 to return to indoor masking. A total of 31 counties in the state are experiencing significant or high Covid transmission, including Onondaga County. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention even recommends vaccinated people wear masks indoors at these levels. See the full list of counties.

MORE ON CORONAVIRUS:

Another CNY city prohibits short-term rentals: City of Salina officials prohibit short-term rentals such as AirBnb and VRBO in residential areas of the city. The city council voted 4 to 1 earlier this month to enact the measure, saying short-term rentals are more like commercial enterprises and undermine the character of neighborhoods.

Look forward

No cash at the gates of State Fair this summer: There are plenty of ways to get tickets to the New York State Fair this summer, both in advance and at the fairgrounds. However, don’t expect to pay for your ticket in cash at the gate; that’s not an option this year. Here’s how you can get tickets.

Plan your weekend: During this first full weekend of August, some of central New York’s favorite events return. Empire Farm Days returns to Onondaga County for the first time since 1987; DeWitt’s Canal Day and Paige’s Butterfly Run return after being canceled last year; and the Salt City Collect-A-Con will return after a two-year absence. Here are 14 events not to be missed.
