Think for a couple of minutes about the last few meals that you've eaten. Have you cooked for yourself and your family? If so, what sort of food did you prepare? Or if you have gone out to a restaurant, where did you go and what did you eat? Have you visited a local market? If so, was it a corner store or a supermarket? Were you on a budget, or was money no obstacle? Was there fresh produce?

We need your help getting Buffalo to recycle because our region needs the cash.
According to a policy brief by Partnership for the Public Good (PPG), the City of Buffalo pays every time people throw their garbage in a trash can. That means that when we toss stuff in the garbage, there is a cost to our community.
The problem: Buffalo residents recycle only 8% of curbside waste each year. Compare that to the national average of 27%, or compare that to other local municipalities that report a

On Wednesday, New York State Assemblyman Sean Ryan introduced a bill (A.09297) in the Assembly to amend state law to add the Buffalo River to the list that defines inland waterways. Currently, the list does not include the Buffalo River, which means it is not eligible for grants under the New York State Environmental Protection Fund's Local Waterfront Revitalization Program.

For one final weekend, the Buffalo & Erie Botanical Gardens will be illuminated with the creative "NIGHT LIGHTS at the Gardens." The show is definitely a way to see the gardens in a different light, as the plants and glass structures are bathed in colorful and interactive lighting. Don't wait too long to experience NIGHT LIGHTS, as it closes this weekend. It will be open tonight from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. and Friday and Saturday night from 6:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. The percussion group Gahu Drum Ensemble will give a performance on Friday
Following 60 years of economic decline and the loss of nearly 319,00 residents the City of Buffalo is now in the unenviable position of owning thousands of vacant residential and commercial properties. The City's housing vacancy rate has climbed from 4.4 percent in 1970 to 17.2 percent by 2010. Much of the urban landscape is now in decay and once vibrant neighborhoods are approaching extinction and others are at risk to follow suit.

If there's one thing Buffalonians get really excited about, it's food. BRO readers know it, and so do the members of Social Media Club Buffalo.
That's why they knew that hosting a Buffalo Web Foodies event would work. The people in this town love eating food, talking about food, cooking food, writing about food, sharing food, and even Tweeting about food.
I was surprised to discover just how big Lobby Bar was. It extended all the way to the end of the building with views onto Delaware Avenue and Niagara Square. Some of the windows incorporated window seating into the
