And to begin the thread, let us talk about the culinary beauties of my City

From beef on weck, to loganberry, to spaghetti parm, pizza, Mighty Taco, and a vast variety of other delights.


(yes I know, chicken wings too but I like my list without it as well because diversity)

Ahhh Buffalo . . . lived there for ten years as a kid growing up. I do remember a fast food place called The Red Barn that was a favorite of mine to go to.  I doubt if it is around anymore.  While I do like chicken wings, I'd rather go for a beef on weck.

Mor has an open appeal. This we knew already.

Mor suffers from Invincible Ignorance and is guaranteed salvation according to the Roman Catholic Church.

In addition, wine from the Finger Lakes is fantastic.

As a kid I lived in a suburb of Syracuse. It was great. I learned to love hockey in the upstate. There was a river nearby where I used to catch frogs and hit golf balls. My family attended a Mormon church next to a Jewish cemetery. When we moved out west I thought it was so strange that nobody was Jewish.
