Sorry for leaving everyone high and dry on the link front last week. Ironically enough, I was in Rochester, which complicated writing a RocLinks so much that I was unable to do so. That said, it was wonderful seeing/meeting so many of you, and my deepest apologies to any readers I missed while in town.
And now, from local development to just plain news of the weird, here are your RocLinks for this past week…
Assuming this post is live and visible before 2PM tomorrow, go to Fuego and explore Rochester . Even if it doesn’t make it, you at least have a new instagram worth following.
The public market is getting a face lift . I really hope this isn’t blowing anyone’s cover, but at an open house for a local design firm potential images of the building were hanging on the walls, and they were impressive to say the least.
Upgrade pt. 2!
Not into public markets? Well then maybe the June 2015 opening of the Rooftop at the Strath will tickle your fancy. It purports to have 260 degree views of Rochester and have space for you and 249 of your closest friends to eat dinner.
Upgrade pt. 3!
Will it ever stop!? Maybe you don’t like public markets OR rooftop dining. Surely you’re the kind of person who loves performing arts centers over vacant lots, then. The city sure does .
Upgrade pt. 4!
Alright, you jaded reader you, forget about the market, the rooftop (and your 249 friends), and a PAC. Everyone loves glass (even if they can’t pronounce Chihuly ), so go check out the new wing at the Corning Museum of Glass when it opens this weekend.
As always, use the comments below as open discussion for anything in these links – or let us know if there’s a topic you’d like to see us hit more aggressively in future RocLinks. Have a great weekend!

I really hope if the theater gets built it isn’t on East Main St. That block might be the only full block downtown of intact pre-1950 buildings (even if one building lost its facade). I would love to see that block rehabbed and not leveled.
For all the empty lots downtown, why tear down something else?
