Hey, I'm Kristen aka Saucy Suraci

Your Go-To Friend for the Best Local Recommendations


About Kristen

Welcome to Saucy Suraci, where I, Kristen, am your ultimate guide to uncovering the hidden gems of Upstate NY and beyond. Think of me as that friend who always has the inside scoop on the best local businesses, must-attend events, and so much more. Whether you’re looking for a new favorite restaurant, a unique shopping experience, or an exciting event, I've got you covered with a side of sarcasm, sass, and lots of sauce.

With the encouragement of my older brother Steve, I started my Instagram page, Saucy Suraci, as a fun side hobby to share the local restaurants and shops I was loving with friends and family. To my surprise, the Saucy Suraci Instagram account grew very rapidly.

About Kristen

Why Saucy Suraci?

I worked with Kristen, AKA Saucy, on a promotion for an RN Injector, in the beauty and Aesthetics field, in the Albany New York area. She was so easy to work with. Incredibly skilled, knowledgeable, and overall just so talented at what she does. We had a perfect experience. I highly recommend her, especially if your business is in need of a little jump-start! Thanks Kristen! You’re the best!!
