A WNY twist on magnetic fridge phrase fun

Fridge Phrases: Buffalo Edition

blog by S.J. Velasquez  • 

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.
