UTICA, N.Y. – After four years, the Utica Area Restaurant Review Facebook page has been archived, discontinuing any more posts or comments.
The page has more than 20,000 followers.
Page creator Tommy Lamach posted a lengthy message on Wednesday, saying he thinks it’s time to discontinue the page.
Although there were negative comments and posts at times, Lamach and the other administrators were able to make some positive accomplishments, beyond helping central New York foodies choose where to spend their dining dollars.
"We had a little girl who needed a wheelchair. We managed to make that happen by reaching out on the page. The organization my wife and I started, Addy's Angels, we used the page to promote that. We've provided foster kids in three counties Christmas for the last three years because of it. And it's just incredible," he said.
The page will remain available to view so people to look up old posts and reviews, but no new content can be added.
