  • National Buffalo Wing Festival
    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.

  • Rochester Parkour
    Since 2007, the coaches and team members at Rochester Parkour have introduced novices to the sport of parkour, the free-form physical discipline of training the human body to overcome physical obstacles in the most efficient way possible. At the activity’s highest level, bodies can deftly navigate even the densest urban spaces, contorting to squeeze through narrow passageways and nimbly leaping to snatch pies from third-story windowsills. As with most sports, however, beginners start with simple maneuvers, conquering basic vaults, swings, and jumps before moving on to more complex movements. In Rochester Parkour’s diverse array of classes, students of all ages and experience levels first explore an indoor gym filled with I-beams, scaffolding, and vault boxes, all ideal for practicing moves away from hard concrete and heckling pigeons. In keeping with the central tenet of parkour, individuals remain in control of their own speed and maneuvers at all times; if moves in the basic classes are too overwhelming, Rochester Parkour also offers low-impact and low-mobility variations.
