just a blonde in buffalo

Over the holidays my friend Agnes and I hit up Canalside. Agnes who is from Buffalo originally, lives in Chicago and was home for the Holidays, so I wanted to show her all of the progress going on downtown. Being it was a Tuesday afternoon, we hit up 716 first to fill our bellies and enjoy some brews before hitting the ice. When we arrived outside, we thought it wouldn’t be a problem to grab some ice bikes from Ice Bikes of Buffalo, but we were wrong…there was a two and a half hour wait and the line to ice skate was long enough that we didn’t want to stand in it! So we had to change up our strategy and we decided to just walk around the area check out all of the skaters and take in the new vibe that is happening at our waterfront.

Even though I was bummed we didn’t get on the bikes {even if we wanted to it would have been so crowded} it was nice to see all of the people {on a Tuesday afternoon} down at Canalside. I’m hoping when I go back in a couple weeks, I’ll have my chance at one of the bikes. In the meantime I’m enjoying all the updates and pictures I’ve been seeing on social media.

If you haven’t been down to Canalside yet, this is the perfect weekend to do so {as long as you don’t mind crowds}. Harborcenter is hosting a three day Winterfest, full of fun activities for everyone. For more info click here.
