The 24 Hours in Buffalo Series is sponsored by Seneca Buffalo Creek Casino
24 Hours in Buffalo is a monthly series we’ve launched to give our readers the rundown on places to explore and things to do in the coming month – whether you’re here for a quick visit and are hoping to squeeze in a mini adventure or two, or you’re a local looking for ideas on where to take your out-of-town guests, or you’re simply stumped on what to do with an upcoming free weekend.
Each month will be a little different, but look for features on a variety of urban adventures – from history tours, to arts exhibits, places to grab a bite, festivals, and more. We hope you discover something new to love about the Queen City!
“Takes the concert experience and turns it into something private and luxe.” — Time Out NY
“The hallmark of this company is a tight integration of style and substance.” — The New York Times
This performance by Temporary Distortion unfolds slowly over the course of four-hours for a meditating audience. Meditation cushions and headphones are provided for the audience to come and go as they wish, staying for only as long as they would like. For someone in the room without headphones, the performance is virtually silent. Temporary Distortion works across and between disciplines to create performances, installations, films, albums and works for the stage. Based in New York City, its work has been shown at Anthology Film Archives, Baryshnikov Arts Center, The Chocolate Factory, The New School, The Ontological-Hysteric Theater, Performance Space 122 and The Queens Museum. The group’s work has also been performed and displayed internationally in South Korea, Russia, France, Czech Republic, Japan, Austria and Hungary.
Celebrate the third anniversary of ThinMan and the official beginning of summer! Elmwood Avenue will be closed between Utica Street and Hodge Avenue, for a day filled with music, beer, and food!

After the bands are done we will shift the party inside for a DJ driven after party!

This Art Deco masterpiece was built to handle over 200 trains and 10,000 passengers daily, as well as 1,500 New York Central employees. It included shops, a restaurant, soda fountain, parking garage and all other services required for daily passenger operations. Although the Central Terminal had the misfortune to open mere months before the onset of the Great Depression, the building was extremely busy during its first two decades of operation, with no period busier than during World War II. The final passenger train departed the Buffalo Central Terminal in October 1979, 50 years after this national landmark opened its doors.
Celebrate the Terminal’s 90th Anniversary in style with a Gatsby Themed Dinner Dance! Music provided by The Buffalo Dolls and Ladies First Jazz Big Band. Dancing by Ballroom and Beyond. Dinner provided by Pott’s Deli and Grille Polish and American restaurant. Join us as we take you on a Sentimental Journey through the decades of the Buffalo Central Terminal.
Admission includes dinner, drinks, dancing, souvenir photo and parking. A portion of the proceeds from each ticket sale will be given to the Buffalo Central Terminal Restoration Project.
Presented By: SE2 Silent Disco. Rock the night away with 3 Channels of Silent Disco (Top 40 & Dance, Hip Hop/R&B, and Throwback Hits) ID required for Silent Disco headphones rental.
The King & Queen’s Royal Feast
Come travel back to a simpler time, during the Medieval Era with Actors Anonymous Theatre Company. You are invited to attend the Royal Engagement Party of the fair Princess, as she is forced into an arranged marriage being orchestrated by her Father, the King. During the evening, you will feast with The Royal Family and be entertained by the Court Jester, Minstrels, the Duke & Duchess, and many other characters. A tournament will take place to win the hand of the Princess and the audience plays an important part in the decision! But beware as it is discovered there is a plot to kill the King. This show takes a whimsical, almost spoofing look (in the tradition of Monty Python’s The Holy Grail) at a special day in the life of The King and his “dysfunctional” court. Come spend a hilarious and interactive evening with us! Dinner and one complimentary beer included with your ticket.
