Tops Rolls Out the Red Carpet For New Local Owners

It is a great show of Buffalo strength, the Million-Man Hot Sauce March, shown in this exclusive photo taken in the Grant Street Tops. Surely this extravagant display is a tribute to Tops' new owners.

It is a sight that stirs the blood.

Next, we expect the Great Blue Cheese Parade!

The Christmas Ornament from the Black Lagoon

In the spirit of Jerry Darlak, God rest his soul, Buzz is doing our Christmas shopping at the liquor store this year. With which, we walked into a Kaisertown wine shop.

And what to our wondering eyes should appear but a representative from Bacardi Rum, offering tastes. We sipped a bit of coconut rum. We left with a warm feeling and a Bacardi ornament that the rep handed us. So nice! Merry Christmas to you, too!

Then we opened up the box and looked at the ornament.

We can't hang this on our tree!

Bacardi

It looks satanic! Like a demon!

Apparently those folks at Bacardi have guzzled a bit too much of their wares. Otherwise they might have thought of a little silver rum bottle, or ... wouldn't a parrot be tropical? Even a "yo ho ho and a bottle of rum" pirate would have been OK, if he wore a red and green bandanna.

But a bat? Or a gargoyle, whatever this is?

Oh well. 

It's the thought that counts.

Food Magazines' Hypocrisy Exposed

Buzz was just going over our new Cooking Light and it is all about, ahem, plants. Eat plants! That is the new buzzword.

And we are thinking: It is funny how food magazines are always throwing Meatless Mondays at us and telling us to go meatless. Because you know who is getting all that yummy  chicken and salmon?

Our pets!

Every issue has these ads for dog and cat food. The one in this Cooking Light, it is just one of many. I cannot believe some ad agency got paid to design it. It is this Devil Dog!

"Feed them like family." But we're not supposed to be meat first. Or grain-free.

Our dinner has gone to the dogs!

The Ultimate Buffalo Bills Snack

Our friend Ryan Lysarz, who shares Buzz's good taste in food, alerts us to this delicacy you can make following instructions from Hillshire Farms.

It is a Lil' Smokie in a football outfit!

Hillshire

The helmet is an olive.

It must be made, in time for the next Bills game.

And dipped in blue cheese!

The Big Macaroni and Cheese Truck Question

Mactruck

Buzz loves living in Buffalo where it is front page news that there is a macaroni and cheese food truck in town. Seeing that headline over the words "The Buffalo News" in this morning's paper made our day!

That is it pictured above. It is called Fally Mac. Which begs the question:

How could proprietor have resisted calling her business ...

Mack

The Mac Truck?

As in, "Man, my diet was going great, and then I got hit by this Mac Truck."

These folks shouldn't worry about being cheesy!

 

Ode To Trader Joe's

Though others flock to Trader Joe's,

With Buzz they're out of luck!

We'll stay away, until the day

They carry ...

Twobuck

Two-Buck Chuck!

(May be sung pompously to the tune of "Auld Lang Syne.")

 

Terrapin Station Knows What You Did Last Summer

Wheel

Thinking about Melvin Seals at the Tralf tonight got us thinking about Terrapin Station which had a poll about what was the best thing about summer. It is too late to vote. The polls are over with, just like the summer! But you can enjoy their findings.

I'm loving it all, whatever comes: 27 %.

Laughter, sunshine and gratitude: 7.4 %.

Checking out the free music everywhere: 6.4 %.

Twirling in my big skirt: 3.2 %.

Hanging out in the parks: 1.1 %.

Mixing new hookah flavors: 7.4 %.

Playing my guitar and singing: 11.5 %.

Oh, heck! Here we were all looking forward to fall and Christmas and this poll was just too funny. Now all we want is summer.

Sunshine daydream!

More Ghosts Appear at AM&As

In October it is fun to explore matters of the supernatural. And so it is with pleasure that we note more mysterious figures being uncovered on Washington Street, on the walls of AM&As.

Remember the first ghost?

Here is another.

Am&as 003

"Around the corner," that reads.

And another! This apparation appears to date from 1950.

Am&as 001

Ghosts clad in important fall fabrics!

Am&as 004

A fleeting sight, beneath the scaffolding over the sidewalk.

Catch them while you can!
