Buffalo: The City of Good Neighbors

Those who live in and love Buffalo, NY know its various monikers:

The Queen City (in reference to Buffalo’s status as the second largest city in NY, to NYC, as well as the second largest on the Great Lakes, to Chicago)

The Nickel City (in reference to the Indian Head Nickel of the early 1900s)

The City of Light (as Buffalo was the first city in America to have electric street lights)

Of course, the most noble of Buffalo’s names is found in The City of Good Neighbors. I remember, years ago, when Extreme Makeover: Home Edition came to Buffalo, they were blown away by the mass of volunteers who came to help the family.

In today’s headline on Buffalo News, you’ll notice a noteworthy article in which a man, Nick Miranda, finds 15 $100 savings bonds in his new home’s basement, tracks down a member of the family and returns them.

Amidst all of the things that set back our city, whether it be the state of our football team or the dwindling population, its good to remember our most important nickname: Buffalo, the City of Good Neighbors. Furthermore, we should remember our great culture, from the incredible Buffalo dining to the beautiful parks and art.

Buffalo is a truly amazing city with amazing people and diverse culture. Remembering and building on these facts allows us to continue this tradition of good neighbors.

Whiskey’s of the World Dinner sure to be a hit

To whiskey aficionados, or those who just love great food and drink, Salvatore’s has an event you don’t want to miss.

On Tuesday, July 17 Salvatore’s Italian Gardens Restaurant is hosting “Whiskey’s of the World Dinner.”

The event kicks off at 5 p.m. with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres before a wonderful and elegant five course meal paired with five extravagant, world class whiskeys.

The whiskeys featured are: (1st course) Suntory Yamazaki, 12-year aged Japanese Whiskey; (2nd course) Amrut Kadhambam, a sweet and fruity whiskey from India; (3rd course) Bruichladdich – Octomore Comus, a rare, aged 5-year Scotch Whiskey that has only 18,000 bottles released worldwide; (4th course) Bulleit Rye, an outstanding American whiskey that took a double gold at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition; (5th course) Glendronach, 15-year aged Scotch whiskey.

These are easily some of the best whiskeys in the world, and in some cases, they won’t be found anywhere around the region. Each has their own distinctive, smooth taste that will make for a once in a lifetime dining experience when they’re combined the top-class meals you’ve come to expect from Salvatore’s.

The delectable five course meal includes: (1st course) Lobster Tempura Roll, (2nd course) Spinach and Arugula Salad with ice win vinaigrette, (3rd course) Yancey’s New York State XXX Cheddar Grilled Cheese with a tomato relish, (4th course) Prime Aged Frenched Pork Chop with dried cherry demi-glace and celery root mashed/baby roasted peppers and caramelized carrot spikes, (5th course) Moist Chocolate Carrot Cake.

For the grand finale, soothe your taste buds with a Casa Magna Diadema cigar, named one of Ciga Aficionado’s Top 25 (10) Cigars of 2011. Here’s what Cigar Aficionado had to say about it:

“The cigar is loaded with cocoa bean, cedar and spicy notes that come together in balanced fashion, culminating in a savory, leathery finish.”

It will be a perfect end to a perfect night.

The cost of this elegant and mouthwatering event is $125 per person, which includes tax and tip. Make your reservations now before it’s too late by calling: 716-683-7990 or email nsalvatore@salvatores.net.

Buffalo offers so much as far as entertainment goes. A lot of people don’t realize it, but this city is diverse and fun. Sure, its no NYC, but when a place has to live in NYC’s shadow as only the second largest city in New York State, people can easily overlook the idiosyncrasies of such an interesting city.

So, while staying at a Buffalo hotel, enjoy a play at Shea’s Performing Arts Center or see a concert at any of the various venues throughout the city.

The Buffalo Zoo is a great place to take your family during any time of the year and, during the summer, you can catch a free play nearby at Shakespeare in Delaware Park.

“State of the Town Address” Brings good News for Amherst

“Amherst Supervisor Barry Weinstein gave a 2012 State of the Town address last week that painted a portrait of a town in sound fiscal health and encouraging growth at a time when other communities are struggling.”

Buffalo News

Amherst is a truly great part of Buffalo to live in; the above article offers proof. As it says, while other towns and districts struggle, Amherst thrives. The town offers some of the best housing, restaurants (i.e. Salvatore’s Italian Gardens Restaurant), entertainment and more. Buffalo businesses can trust Amherst town officials to be fiscally responsible, which is why fine dining restaurants and luxury hotels continue to survive in Amherst.

In the midst of this shaky economy, hope still lives on, thanks to towns like Amherst.
