Roaming Buffaloes Adventure Club hosted a Kickoff Happy Hour at Flying Bison Brewing Company on Ontario Street in Buffalo, last Friday, March 27 at 6:00 pm.
Kevin McCarthy provided the soundtrack to the evening during which members and guests got to sample such beers as Flying Bison’s “Aviator Red,” “Barnstormer Pale Ale,” and” Blackbird Oatmeal Stout,” among other delicious microbrews.
Jeff Empric, founder of Roaming Buffaloes Adventure Club, was very pleased with the overall success of the club’s inaugural event, saying “We are thrilled to have such a diverse group of members. It was a great turnout for our first event. The excitement everyone is showing about this group and our schedule of upcoming adventures is better then we could have ever hoped for.”
The group picked up additional members at the happy hour, bringing the current membership total to a respectable one hundred fifty two. One hundred seventy two people attended the party, at which the club raffled off over $2500 in prizes including a 2009 Jamis Citizen 2 Bicycle valued at $540.00, and a 26″ LCD Flat Screen TV valued at $498.00.
