On the Trail of Emma Roberts in 'Adult World'

February 14, 2014 at 3:33 PM | by | Comments (0)

The quirky new movie Adult World is perfect for a Valentine's date night, and not just because it is a romantic comedy. It also perfectly captures the frigid upstate New York winter which will make you want to snuggle up even closer to your sweetie.

Adult World stars Emma Roberts as recent college graduate and aspiring writer whose student loan debt forces her to move back home with her parents and take a job at an adult bookstore.

The movie was filmed entirely on location in Syracuse, NY during the winter of February 2012 and showcases some of our favorite 'Cuse hangouts.

Here's a look at three of the movie's filming locations where you can warm up this weekend:

· Recess Coffee
Recess is a favorite hangout of coffee lovers in Syracuse. They are known for their coffee, which is roasted in house, and their specialty drinks, like Nutella Hot Chocolate, Mexican Cappuccino, and Almond Joy Cappuccino. You can check out their full menu at recesscoffee.com.

· Phoebe's Restaurant
It is no surprise Phoebe's ended up in a Syracuse-centric movie since locals love it. The restaurant hosts events, offers fine dining, has a coffee bar, serves light lunches, and even has a trivia night. Next week Phoebe's kics off Dining Week with 3 courses for $25. Reservations can be made at phoebessyracuse.com.

· Syracuse University
The SU campus is featured prominently in Adult World. Since it is Valentine's Day, we'd recommend taking a seat on the Kissing Bench next to the Hall of Languages. As the story goes, any couple who kisses on the bench will eventually get married. If you're single you might have luck meeting someone at the University's annual Block Party in May, held to commemorate the end of the school year. Of course, no trip to Syracuse is complete without taking in a Basketball game, especially this season. You can find the Orange's full schedule at cuse.com.
