The Windy City Showdown begins.
Nick Offerman and Craig Robinson go head to head in this long-standing MLB rivalry between the Chicago Cubs and Chicago White Sox in New Era’s latest ad campaign. Although the Bisons are the closest we can get to an MLB team, you still can’t help but love these two guys ripping each other apart.
Robinson was just in town at the end of March for…

Two years ago, Buffalo’s own pop/rock band More Than Me won a national voting contest to open for Paul McCartney, Pearl Jam and Stevie Wonder at Hard Rock’s London Calling show in London’s Hyde Park.
Now, Whiskey Reverb, a local indie psych/rock band, is pitted against 86 other international finalists in a Facebook popularity vote that runs through April 24. You can enter your…
We waited all year for the opportunity to whip cuties with budded branches, and now you’re just going to throw those pussy willows away?
Instead of tossing branches—not to mention your cookies this morning if you overindulged in the Tyskie—on this day after Dyngus Day, put those pussy willows to good use. Well, “good” is subjective, so let’s just say “alternative use.”
The wind made it feel a tad cooler than it was, but it was a great day around the streets of the old Polonia District as the Polish -- and the Polish at heart -- revelled in the Dyngus Day festivities.

The Adam Mickiewicz Library is the beating heart of Polish culture in Buffalo's old-time Polonia district on the city's lower East Side -- and on Monday, the Mickey was jam-packed with Dyngus Day revelers. Buffalo.com photographer Chuck Alaimo waded into the pussy willows and Tyskie to capture the scene.
Edward Austin Kent died nearly 100 years ago in the sinking of the Titanic, but the Buffalonian’s memory lives on in his architectural work throughout the city.
The Unitarian Universalist Church of Buffalo, for example, was completed by Kent and his brother William Winthrop Kent in 1906—just six years before the Titanic disaster in April 1912. The church will commemorate the…
UPDATE: The Buffalo News reports that Tuesday night’s Marianas Trench show at Rapids Theatre has been postponed due to illness. Save your tickets—they’ll be honored on a later date (TBA).
Marianas Trench’s lead singer/guitarist Josh Ramsay admits that his fall 2011 album “Ever After” was over the top—kooky, even. Sustaining the momentum from catchy…
If you talk to someone who’s enjoyed Buffalo’s Dyngus Day celebrations for over a decade, the first place they’d point you to is not necessarily the Central Terminal or the Adam Mickiewicz Library, although both are worthy destinations.
PVT Leonard Post VFW #6251, 2450 Walden Ave., Cheektowaga, again plays host to one of the official Dyngus Day parties on Monday after filming…
