Let’s raise a glass to Buffalo: A city of great hospitality

The Toronto Star recently paid a trip to Buffalo – a visit that turned a sports columnist from a long-time hater of Buffalo to a mouthpiece in support of the underdog city. As many of us are all too aware, Buffalo can be an easy place to hate, especially for those who have never taken the time to look around.

Truth be told, there was a time when Buffalo might have deserved some if the ribbing that we get. But at the same time, things have been looking up for this city for a number of years, and we’re reached a tipping point that is undeniable (for most). Thankfully, for even the most ardent haters, the time has come to reevaluate Buffalo as a place that is making great strides to right the wrongs that have befallen Buffalo in the past. Here’s the article that I am referring to.
