Events: Taste of Buffalo

Stop eating.
Right now. Trust me.

This weekend's approaching, and the QCLA crew highly recommends you check out the countries largest 2 day food festival, The Taste of Buffalo. From 11am-9pm saturday and 11am-7pm sunday, you have 18 unadultered hours to stuff your face with food from over 50 resaurants featuring 13 different ethnic food types!

Plus as they've been doing for the past few years, each stand will have one healthy option for those watching our wastelines. Apps, entree's and deserts are all over the place, plus several different wineries have stands if you're into the grapes!

But don't think this is just limited to (a lot) of food. From the taste of Buffalo website:
"The Taste has two stages featuring the best in continuous musical entertainment and a DJ with karaoke hosts the Huron Street Labatt Blue party tent. The Culinary Stage located in the New Era parking lot on Delaware Avenue is a competition kitchen that features Nickel City Chef, Buffalo's version of Iron Chef, and a variety of culinary personalities that showcase their culinary talents. Many of the sponsors have interactive exhibits and offer free samples. It's also a great place to people watch."

Last year, my brother in law spun the wheel at the Ford Motors exhibit and won $30, not bad!

Plus, entry is free, you just have to buy the tickets to be able to purchase the food, and most items range from $2-$4 price range. Remember to stay cool this year, with heat regularly in the 80s and 90's so far, it'll be important to stay hydrated and cool. Especially those of you with small children!
