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.

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.
