“A Thousand Islands Adventures Weekend”

white water challengers 1

Gals weekend to the 1,000 Islands was a success this past weekend. From walking around Alexandria Bay looking for a selfie stick, stopping at Clayton Distillery, to hoping aboard a 2 hour wine cruise with Coyote Moon {which you got a whole bottle of wine with} to spending the day with are awesome rafting guide Sadie on Sunday as we rafted down the Black River, this past weekend was a great mini adventure!

Whitewater Challengers has multiple rivers you can raft down at various locations. We were an all girl raft and none of us fell out. I will say I was pretty nervous when we first started because I didn’t know what to expect and they kept prepping us for what to do if you were to fall out of the raft. We received a mid-day snack and then after rafting for a few more hours there was a chicken BBQ back at home base. It was an adventure I loved and I honestly wish I had more free time so I could go back.

If you’re looking for something fun to do, I highly recommend Whitewater Challengers. The guides were awesome, we got to shout Go Bills and the only thing I would change would be bringing a waterproof camera so I could have taken some pictures while we were on the water.

This week has been more stressful then I would have liked, but I’m looking forward to this weekend with my friends drinking some wine and white water rafting. I can’t believe we are entering the last week of July, this summer is flying by! Enjoy it!

Wherefore art thou Romeo?

romeo and juliet

Wherefore art thou Romeo? A couple weeks ago my sister and I went to Shakespeare in Delaware Park to see Romeo and Juliet and what a crowd that came out- it was so packed! It was also a beautiful night to catch a free play and enjoy some wine and Shakespeare.

Starting on Thursday this week {July 23} Shakespeare in Delaware Park comes back for their second half of the season with an all male cast for the play the 12th Night. If you haven’t been to a play before definitely check one out. It makes for a fun and affordable night out in the summer. For more information or to see how you can help the organization click here.

8 Lunch Spots to Check Out Downtown

photo 1

Today I’m talking about places to go on lunch if you work downtown. Its always nice to get out of the office and walk around if you can, so I’ve compiled a list of places to check out for your next lunch meeting or just to get out of the office for a little bit.

Code Blu Juice Bar – now at Canalside and offering salads as well as juice – tables are set-up over the bridge to sit and enjoy people watching to grab and go if you’re in a time crunch.

Liberty Hound – a great place to take in the views while enjoying some great plates

Clinton’s Dish – the stand has come along way offering wraps, sandwiches and salads and ice cream. Its a great spot to go.

Roux – Soup Bar & Café inside the Buffalo News Building (5th Floor) – offers soup and sandwiches and is a great place to go for a quick meal.

pearl street

Pearl Street is always a good spot to go – especially if its nice out – the patio is a great spot for a work meeting or a lunch date with friends.

Vasilis on Main St. is always a great place to go as well – offering a wide array of food options.

The Archer is a great place to hold a lunch meeting for work.

Fables Café inside the Buffalo Erie County Library offers soup, sandwiches and salads. Enjoy a bite to eat and grab a book to read.
