Cheektavegas, wide right, loganberry, Marv, pussy willow—you, Western New Yorker, know what I’m talking about. Your out-of-town friends? To them, this is gibberish.
One group of locals decided to add a little Buffalo flair to the already popular magnetic poetry sets that don many refrigerators. From the folks who bring us City Dining Cards come Fridge Phrases: Buffalo Edition.
More than 200 magnetic uniquely Buffalo words and phrases come in a pack, providing loads of fun for locals and expats.
“We wanted to create a fun and affordable way to engage Buffalonians near and far with words and sayings only heard or spoken in Western New York,” Block Club founder Patrick Finan said in a statement. “Buffalonians take pride in what separates us from other cities—including the strange but wonderfully unique phrases and sayings that we use every day.”
Fridge Phrases are available for $20 online, at Value Home Center stores and at various shops throughout Western New York.
