Who is the ROConnoisseur?


My name is Casey Bowker and I'm a self-proclaimed foodie and all-around geeky guy. When I’m not out in search of my next great meal or happy hour, I like working on my website Don't Forget a Towel.


My goal for this show is simple: to help hungry and thirsty Upstate New Yorkers answer two very difficult questions, “What do you want to do this weekend?” and “Where should we go to eat?” 


Picture This: You just got home from a long week of work. You want to grab a drink and some food with some friends, but you don't know where to go. It's often one of the hardest decisions you'll make in a day and if you're anything like me, you're consulting Facebook, texting your friends, or reading throughYelp reviews - just to avoid a bad experience.


ROConnoisseur's Roadtrip is here to help you simplify that process. Every week I’ll visit a local venue, share my experience, and make sure you’re always in the know on where to go and what to order. I'll be interviewing owners of local eateries, exploring new places as they open, and determining what sets them apart - be it a signature drink or undeniably delicious food item that you can not get any place else.
