I survived... the infamous Rochester garbage plate!

Rochester, New York might only be 75 miles from Buffalo, but if you think it’s a wing town, think again.  Sure, they serve chicken wings, like every other place on the planet, but their local culinary special is much closer to a French-Canadian classic.  355 more words

Burger Day 2014 featured a few changes from the previous format.  For one, they moved it way down south to the park behind Fort York.  All in all, this was probably a good thing–green grass, picnic tables, more open space…and, most importantly, you could drink a beer outside, which wasn’t the case at the Wychwood Barns. 674 more words
