As a football fan, I have no problem with Tim Tebow.
I don't care that he can't stand stationary in the pocket and toss a fluid downfield pass like Aaron Rodgers. I don't care that he can't methodically pick apart a defense like Tom Brady, and I'm not concerned that he doesn't robotically advance through his target checks like Drew Brees. It doesn't bother me that he's running the Denver offense like Major Harris ran
If you happened to miss the recent Pandamonium fashion show presented by the Bales Clothing that took place at the Museum of Science, then you're still in luck because the local designer fashion movement is growing, and more people are starting to pay attention.

Toronto Maple Leaf Joffrey Lupul took some lumps for tweeting about his view from his Embassy Suites hotel room this past weekend. City Hall, Statler City, New Era Cap HQs, federal courthouse and the 100 South mixed-use project can be seen from his south-facing room.

Buffalo has a unique opportunity to recapture a share of the middle class and become a thriving city once again. It's not terribly difficult, it's happening already, and the benefits could be enormous. It just needs to market itself to the retiring baby boomers as a place to retire.
Yes, I know that everyone's grandparents couldn't wait to leave the ice and snow for sunny Florida. But there are certain demographic tides that even the most cynical of people cannot ignore. According
There are no clues - just a photo depicting the item. I'm sure that there are a lot of BRO readers out there who have scoured the city and have seen just about all that there is to see. Others might learn about some real treasures found in the most unlikely places. Either way, I'll keep mixing it up from week to week to keep
"I live in Washington, DC, and food trucks are now common. It isn't the wild west, and in fact our restaurant scene is thriving. The bricks and mortars had the same issues initially, but everyone seems to think it works out fine now." - Rand503
To anyplace that considers itself a "global city" - New York, Chicago, etc - globalization and global competitive reality are the defining lens through which they see their present and future. I happen to think that with the exception of a handful of the most exceptional cities, this is to some extent unhealthy. These cities take too narrow a view.
