Month: July 2014



Opened in 2014 this pub is upscale and offers wine and beer from the Hamburg Brewing Company. A new place in Blasdell that I want to check out, Black Iron Bystro


I haven’t been to Chautauqua Lake since I was a little kid. I remember going for hikes, fishing and just strolling through town visiting the local shops. I’d love to pay a visit before the summer ends.


I follow this local Women’s Boutique on Instagram {Shop Sarah Danielle} and with it being located so close to my work {Ellicott Square Building} I have them on my list of places to visit.


I missed out on this event last summer, but have made plans this weekend to pay a visit and see what its all about. Taking a look at their schedule it looks like its filled with a lot of fun things to do, especially for kids! Chalkfest Buffalo will take place on the 500 block of Main Street downtown and this year’s theme is “Hats off to Dr. Seuss”

Bada Bing!

I never was a fan of the old Bada Bing located next door to Purple Monkey {that is no longer there}, but the other day I grabbed lunch with Lacey and the new restaurant/bar located down the street from their old location {42 West Chippewa} is pretty impressive.

It was modern and clean, the food was good and the service was nice, making it a great spot to go for lunch if you work downtown. You get your food in a reasonable amount of time and there is an upstairs and outdoor patio area for seating as well. Not being a fan at one time, I must say I can’t wait to go back, but this time for a happy hour.

Friday Favorites!

This week is a pretty sad, but happy one as I say goodbye to two great friends. While I’m sad that they are leaving, I’m happy for the opportunities that came their way and am wishing them nothing, but great things in their future. While Buffalo is losing two amazing people, NY and DC are gaining two amazing people. Have a wonderful weekend.

Football season is so close! Buffalo Bills training camp started on Sunday and I can’t wait to catch a practice at St. John Fisher in the next couple weeks! #GoBills

During the summer months M&T Bank hosts concerts in the plaza during the lunch hour. Its nice taking a walk on your lunch break to hear the music in the streets of Main St. downtown.

photoA new bar/restaurant opening soon in East Aurora, NY. I can’t wait to check them out! 189 Public House  


For those looking to do a fun activity, check out the Clay Hands Pottery in Clarence, NY.

I don’t make my way to Lewiston that often, but this past week my friend Lauren and I caught the Sara Bareilles concert for their Coors Light Wednesday concert series. You can’t go wrong, for general admission, tickets were $11 and you we got to see a pretty talented artist. Artpark is such a pretty place, for those who love nature, music and being outdoors I suggest taking the pretty drive up to Niagara county and spending a day exploring and seeing what its all about.
