“Escape to Buffalo: A Skeptic’s Guide to a Great Weekend Getaway.”

The Wall Street Journal has positioned Buffalo in a sunny light, with a fresh article that spotlights a number of reasons to pay a visit to the Queen City on the Lake. Yes, for many New Yorkers, Buffalo could be considered a great weekend getaway from the daily hustle and bustle. Just as more Torontonians are making their way here due to the close proximity (hour+ drive), New Yorkers can puddle jump to Buffalo with ease.

The WSJ article does a handy job of covering a whirlwind of reasons to pay a visit, from the city’s architectural bounty to the Colored Musicians Club and Dapper Goose.

Speaking of Dapper Goose, Amherst Street in Black Rock is on quite a roll these days. This week we will be featuring myriad posts on the district. And if you’ve never eaten at Dapper Goose, then you don’t know what you’re missing. The restaurant has become a hometown favorite as of late. Good for WSJ to point it out as a “farm-to-table front-runner” in the article.
