fun, good wings, but on a very hot day, they needed a better location, we didn't stay long as it was too darn hot and there was no place to get out of sun and to cool down, what they had put on the ground to walk on, just radiated the heat

From Our Editors

In the 2001 movie Osmosis Jones, Bill Murray's character dreams of attending the National Buffalo Wing Festival. Although that made for an amusing plot point, there was a problem: at the time, no such festival existed. When Buffalo native Drew Cerza heard about this oversight, he realized that it was a wrong that needed righting. He threw his inaugural festival that same year, and the rest is meaty, sauce-slathered history. Now, every Labor Day weekend, wing fans flock to Buffalo, and they usually bring their appetites to chow through one million-plus wings over the duration of the festival.

At each festival, restaurant representatives travel to Coca-Cola Field to share their tastiest, hottest sauces with festivalgoers. A select group of buffalo wing purists participate in the festival's traditional and creative sauce competitions, whipping up sauces onstage before serving their concoctions to a panel of local celebrity judges. The sauce-off is one of the festival's many contests, which also include wing eating competitions and bobbing for wings in a pool of blue cheese.

Aside from the many wing-based events, the festival features entertainment ranging from live music to live quiz shows. In 2006, the festival even hosted a wedding, fulfilling every father's fantasy of grabbing a snack as he accompanies his daughter down the aisle.

Buffalo Guide

Buffalo, New York may be a city known to outsiders for several things, such as its snowy winters and the invention of the Buffalo wings, but residents know that the real Buffalo is a lively city. There are plenty of things to do in Buffalo, from the active nightlife to museums and art galleries. The city is also a short distance from one of nature’s most majestic wonders -- Niagara Falls. Consulting a Buffalo guide will show that the city offers many attractions to both tourists and residents alike. With a vibrant nightlife and culture, Buffalo things to do are available around every corner.

Walk or drive through Buffalo and see what makes the city so beautiful. Buildings have been preserved for many years and the government works to preserve old architecture. A perfect display of such preservation includes the Allentown Historical District which was first settled in the 1800s. Allendale Theatre, first established in 1913, was renovated in 2000 with much of the original architecture intact, and was reopened as the Theatre of Youth. Admire the theater’s grand craftsmanship and history, then see a fun, family-friendly show. For a night on the town, enjoy a true Buffalo experience at the Bucking Buffalo Saloon, located on Franklin Street. Test those cowboy skills (and stamina!) on the mechanical bull, then enjoy drinks afterward.

Outdoor activities are available in every season in Buffalo. Go skiing or sledding in the winter, swimming in the summer, and play outdoor sports in the fall at one of the many parks. South Park and Delaware Park both provide many sports facilities for visitors. Basketball courts, baseball diamonds, and racquetball courts are all available, and wide-open areas allow groups to picnic and toss a frisbee or kick a soccer ball around.

From natural attractions to culture and architecture, no matter what kind of attraction, it can be found right here in the heart of Buffalo, New York.
