BufBloPoFo08 Day 9

Anyone who talks to me knows how much I like living in Buffalo. I often joke it would take nothing short of a nuclear detonation to get us to move out of the area.

One of the things I like about being in Buffalo are the large number of things we have to do around here in the summer (not that I have the time to do most of them).

First off, pretty much every weekend from June through September there is either a festival, street fair or lawn fete. My favorites include the Italian Festival , the Taste of Buffalo , and the National Buffalo Wing Festival .

If you're a music fan you can find free concerts at Artpark on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, Thursday at the Square, Gusto at the Gallery, plus other random concerts through the year.

If your the outdoor sort, you can explore the American side of the Falls, go to Chestnut Ridge, Delaware Park, the Zoo, Beaver Island State Park, ride on the bike paths.

If you like thrill rides, Darien Lake has some really great roller coasters.

Plus there are a ridiculusly large number of great restaurants to eat at ranging from super casual (Ted's, Anderson's, Jim's Steakout) to high end (Lombardo's, Chop House).

Oh yeah, the bars are all open until 4am.
