Playin’ by the water: Pop-Up Park builds at Canalside - INTERVIEW

blog by Ben Tsujimoto  •   •  

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.…

Blue and gold neighbors: Canisius hockey skates to HARBORcenter

blog by Ben Tsujimoto  •   •  

Whenever the topic of Canisius College men’s ice hockey has come up in conversation—and that’s been a decent amount recently due to the team’s Atlantic Hockey title, NCAA Tournament appearance and Cory Conacher’s rise to the NHL—it has felt very unnatural to explain that the Griffs played at the Buffalo State Sports Arena—our city’s only college hockey venue—for the last 14 years.…

One of my favorite things about going to the library when I was little were the big book sales in the summer, to make way for new titles.

With a few dollar bills, I could fill up a small bag with extra copies of books the library was looking to get rid of and replenish my mini-collection at home. Now you can get in on the nostalgic goodness and check out the Downtown Central…

Buffalo: ‘Reliably cool and comfortable’ in summer, report claims

blog by Ben Tsujimoto  •   •  

According to BestPlaces.net author Bert Sperling, Buffalo ranks No. 6 in America’s top ten “Chill Cities.” For some reason, it doesn’t feel like the best time to publish this report.

Sperling doesn’t mean that we’re easy-going and enjoy lounging on patios sipping cherry lemonade with our feet up—his detailed statistical study paints the Queen City as having one of the nation’s…

blog by Ben Tsujimoto  •   •  

The promoters of the Buffalo Outer Harbor Concert Series—which welcomes the Tragically Hip, Grace Potter and the Nocturnals and Mac Miller this weekend alone—have worked diligently to improve an imperfect situation.
