While introducing local luminaries today at University at Buffalo’s Alumni Arena, President Barack Obama committed a slight blunder.
In recognizing Buffalo’s mayor, Obama confidently exclaimed “Brian Higgins!”—who’s actually the Democratic congressman for New York State’s 26th district, which includes Buffalo and Niagara Falls. We’re speculating that Buffalo mayor Byron Brown…

One of the tell-tale signs of adulthood is moving away from your hometown for a few years—whether it’s for college, a new job or to get married—and then returning to witness the changes.
Definitions of positive change vary—you may be excited to see subdivisions pop up in formerly empty fields, but your uncle Chuck may be annoyed by the resulting traffic congestion. You may be…

Sometimes the biggest ideas are saved by the most innocent of notions.
For TEDxBuffalo, it started while then-volunteer Kevin Purdy was drafting a blog post canceling the first incarnation of the event, which puts Buffalo speakers with good ideas and stories in front of Buffalo listeners who want to hear them.
“I was sitting in my kitchen,” said Purdy over coffee Wednesday off…

If you’re looking to orchestrate a drug deal, Twitter is probably not the best platform to do so. After all, unless your account is private, any internet user can read what you’re posting.
Apparently “think before you tweet” wasn’t on the agenda for York, Ontario native Sunith Baheerathan, who, according to Buzzfeed, sent the following tweet out from his now-closed…

Appeasing all types of Buffalo Bills fans who roll into Ralph Wilson Stadium year after year isn’t an easy task. In fact, it’s probably impossible.
Think about it: young families, perhaps staunch Bills fans throughout their post-college years, want their children to experience fall football in Orchard Park, just as they did as youngsters with their parents.
The chance to share…

It’s been quite a while since I’ve answered reader questions from the Young Money mailbag, so I thought I’d take a look at what’s come in throughout the summer.
Caitlin, I don’t agree with some of the decisions my co-workers have been making lately that concern projects we work on jointly. How do I let them know without causing an office riot?
It’s hard, but…

Call it a South Buffalo treasure or the most underrated member of the Olmsted Parks system, but Cazenovia Park is a point of pride for South Buffalo residents.
The Buffalo Reading Invasion visits the landmark at 7 tonight for an hour to celebrate Buffalo’s public spaces and emphasize the importance of reading. The free gathering will take place at the northeast edge of the park…

Whether you’re a hardcore programmer, an intrigued developer or an ambitious IT student, we’ve heard there are frustrations with basically every coding language out there: C++, Java, Perl, PHP and so on.
Enter Nickel City Ruby, a conference focused on Ruby, an increasingly prevalent coding language that’s extolled for its beauty and layers of simplicity and complexity.

You may be familiar with the current trend of pop-up dinners, where a chef selects a non-traditional venue and creates a one-time, pre-fixe meal considered special for one reason or another. One of Buffalo’s first pop-ups was a Peruvian fundraiser for Martha Sosa—there have been very few others—but the fad has reached epic proportions in more progressive cities like New York City.…
