There’s More to Buffalo Than Shopping

11 July 2011 | 0 Comments

I bookmarked this article in the Toronto Star a while ago and kind of forgot about it.  But I’m glad I’m revisiting, as it’s a good one!  Titled “How I Overcame my Prejudice Against Buffalo,” it features all kinds of cool ideas for a weekend getaway to Buffalo, NY.  Most of us just head there for the shopping, but there’s much more.  I knew the Albright Knox Gallery was worth a visit, but hadn’t heard about Allentown, the bohemian artsy part of town full of bars, restaurants, and shops.

Next time I head to Buffalo for my outlet-mall and Target fix, I’ll be sure to check out the Blue Monk bar… just look at that beer list (pictured above)!  Ian went with a friend last year and said they don’t serve ketchup – just different kinds of spiced mayo for your frites.  Amazing.

And after last year’s trip to Fallingwater, I think a visit to Frank Lloyd Wright’s Martin House Complex is a must.
