3rd Annual Pints & Pierogi

Ru’s Pierogi and Thin Man Brewery are teaming up with the Marcy Casino to present another Pints & Pierogi event. This will surely be the best P&P yet, with the recent exciting news that the top floor of the casino will transition into a full fledged restaurant.

For the third year in a row, the community is invited to attend this special event. Not only will Buffalo’s new favorite pierogi makers be on hand, the city’s favorite new brewery will also be present. After all, what goes best with these Eastern European dumplings? A nice cold locally brewed beer.

“Pierogi and beer are traditionally paired together, but when the beer is brewed by our own Thin Man Brewery, and the pierogi are handmade from Ru’s Pierogi, the event becomes a homegrown Buffalo celebration,” stated Jason Davidson, co-owner of soon-to-open The Terrace and owner of Magnolia Catering, the catering service that operates out of the Marcy Casino. “Add classic rock, punk, new wave & indie rock, played by DJ Dr. Wisz – who kept our summer Thursday Hoppy Hour jamming – and we’ve got a party to not be missed.”

This year, funds raised at the door will go towards Friends of the Night People – the organization that is dedicated to taking care of homeless folks by providing them with daily nutritious meals.

“The support from attendees at this year’s Pints & Pierogi will help FONP provide hot, nutritious, and delicious meals to individuals and families during the upcoming holiday season,” added Joseph S. Heary, Executive Director of Friends of The Night People. “Over the next two months we plan to serve over 10,000 meals, and we will be sure to include some pierogi on our menu too.”
