And with six to 30 students in the typical class, you'll enjoy social interaction far more pleasant than your ill-fated attempt to hand out free hugs at the zoo.

Few people stick with their first jobs longer than a summer. But when 9-year-old Mike Milkie first helped out at his father's restaurant, he was taking the first steps toward a career as a restaurateur that has lasted more than six decades. Milkie's On Elmwood is his latest endeavor, following more than a dozen Buffalo-area restaurants and clubs, including the former Milkie Way Theater, which hosted acclaimed Broadway plays and second-run planetarium films.
Mike's niece Suzanne leads things on the culinary side as the head chef. Every day, her kitchen staff layers hand-carved meats between slices of bread slathered with chutneys and roasted pepper spreads, caramelize bacon to pile atop burgers, and bake crispy flatbreads until the ovens shut down at 4 a.m. Milkie's On Elmwood hosts special events such as Friday fish fries, trivia and karaoke nights, and live performances by Lance Diamond and other local musicians.
Epic Restaurant and Lounge captures diners? interest with dishes that showcase fresh, seasonal ingredients as well as the chef?s mastery of culinary techniques ranging from classic French to peasant, according to Buffalo Spree. The menu?which the Buffalo News called ?ambitious? and ?totally different from any other in the area??comprises upscale dinner fare with unexpected twists: the BLT sandwich arrives topped with lobster, and the duck breast is flanked by a blood-orange reduction and rubber-ducky bodyguards.
The eatery also strives to be epic in its drink selection with a varnished wooden bar offering more than 25 imported or microbrewery beers as well as an extensive wine list. Diners can kick off the weekend with dinner, drinks, and jams every Friday night, with entertainment alternating between salsa and live bands.
