Buffalo Lingo

I am from Buffalo. We eat chicken wings, not buffalo wings. Jack Kemp is
a quarterback, not a politician. We drink Labatt Blue and love it.
Mighty Taco always has preference over Taco Bell. Pop, not soda and
Pepsi, not Coke. They are sneakers not tennis shoes. It's a sucker, not
a lollipop. Bison Chip Dip, La Nova Pizzeria, Aunt Rosie's Loganberry,
Chiavettas Chicken, and Ted's Hot Dogs are all too familiar... not to
forget Taffy's Shakes and Charlie the butcher.
A fake ID is unnecessary, there is always Canada... but we have them
anyway. Our bars don't close until 4, and we DO sell beer in a grocery
store (Tops or Wegmans), which always makes for early starts and late
nights. Jim's Steak Out at 4 in the morning is calling it an early
We never cuss, but we swear entirely too much. We know that a 65 mph
speed limit really means 80. We will cut you off, swear, and give you
the finger if you are not keeping up AND do it all in the snow, while
expecting nothing less in return. Driving in the snow not only comes
naturally, it is fun.
We know what Artvoice and Nightlife are and we either love them or try
to burn every copy we see. We start the weekends off right at Thursdays
in the square enjoying beer, free music, and an interesting crowd.
We lived through Wide Right, The Forward Lateral, and No Goal. Dubbed
by Dan Marino as "the meanest fans because no-one actually wants to
live here"... we all know he wouldn't stand one winter up here. We love
the Bills (no matter what) and accept that it takes 2-4 hours to get
home from a game. Nothing closes in 3 feet of snow or -20 windchills...
in fact, that's how we prefer to tailgate. The 2001 Christmas Storm
that dumped nearly of 7ft of lake effect snow we still think it's a
mere 2nd to The Blizzard of '77.
We can correctly pronounce, spell, and identify Chippewa, Scajaquada,
Lackawanna, Cheektowaga, Cattaraugus, Chautauqua, Olean, Tonawanda and
Gowanda without hesitation. When giving direction it's not " take I-90
to Route 33 east" it's "take the 90 to the 33 east"..."the" is not an
We are 30 minutes from another country, one of the seven wonders of the
world, and even a few beaches.
It's the second largest city in New York.

I AM FROM BUFFALO, a drinking town with a sports problem, and damn

Welcome to my Blog!

This is my blog! I’ve started this page so my friends and family can keep up on the happenings of my life in the “big city.” As life is pretty cool up here!

I’ve had a few encounters that have resulted in a “wow” reaction, but the latest was Sunday night. Because our new landlord seems to have a problem with everything, long story short, we had to take Wendy’s wet clothes to The Laundry Basket to use a few dryers. You should have seen this place, it was immaculate! There was a woman working a counter where you could purchase detergent AND play quick draw! This place also had a pool table, a few video games and a sitting area! Why can’t Albion have laundry mats like this!!
