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.
