Shop suggestion: Lotions and Potions
Mother-daughter team Sue and Ciara Morreale opened Lotions & Potions in Elmwood Village in 2009, showcasing an array of indulgent beauty products, clothing, and accessories for women.

The red-hot Detroit Red Wings (16-8-1) made it a chilling start to the month of December for the Buffalo Sabres (14-11-1) with a 4-1 trouncing, Friday.
Detroit swirled into the First Niagara Center with one of the light gusts of flurries sweeping over the city and a 6-game winning streak on the line.
Throughout the game Detroit dominated the Sabres with lightning quick puck movement and solid goaltending from Jimmy Howard, proving the Sabres have a long way to go to become a Stanley

The Broadway Market has a long, storied
history in Buffalo, and you'd be hard-pressed to find someone in the area that has never heard of it.

San Bor Sports was established in 1972. Since that time, owner Rick Bordieri has seen the Grant-Ferry neighborhood undergo numerous transitions.

On the occasional Saturday I feature an obscure architectural element found in the city, to see if someone can figure out where it is. Buffalo is filled will all sorts of obscure architectural details and hidden items if interest.
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 you guessing...
