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.

Yes, yes, youth is wasted on the young. And so is accumulated experience wasted on the old, the positives of modernism wasted on moderns, the beauty of Christianity wasted on Christians, the utility of scholarship wasted on scholars, and on and on.

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.
