Buffalo Aficionado: Rise With Us

For those looking to enjoy the finer things in life, Buffalo Aficionado is right up your alley. Throughout the course of the year, Aficionado teams up with various local “authorities” that appreciate and disseminate the bespoke lifestyle. Whether it’s a custom-made suit or a hand-rolled cigar, or maybe a locally distilled spirit, there are those who go out of their way to find the best that Buffalo has to offer, while sharing their finds with others along the way.

Most of the times, these types of clubs meet at households or clubs, where coveted corks are popped and tales of adventure unfold. A club might revolve around exotic cars, fencing, or a prized Scotch collection. Often times, these clubs find commonalities amongst themselves. Aficionado is a way for collectors and enthusiasts to extol the virtues of their passions in a celebratory setting, surrounded by local professionals and like-minded aficionados.

On February 27, 2015, you are invited to mingle with a number of Buffalo’s finest purveyors, at The Hotel @ The Lafayette (6-9pm). Some of the evening’s activities include:

  • Fine bourbons and Scotch
  • Cirque sky ribbon dancers
  • Your first hot shave
  • Fencing with a comrade
  • High end fashion advice
  • Standing in the corner looking at your watch
  • Delicious hors d’oeuvres from Buffalo Proper
  • Flamenco Dancers
  • Professional studio photography
  • Smoked meats from Fat Bob’s
  • Hand rolled cigars

“The Buffalo Aficionado is  Buffalo’s premier event for rising professionals. Where guests can meet others working to build the new Buffalo. Enjoy tastings, lifestyle exhibitions and unique entertainment, all in fine taste in the Grand Ballroom of the Hotel Lafayette.” – Aficionado
