We knew that would grab everyone's attention!
This week, Tops has that special going where they double your $1 coupons. You present the coupon, along with one of their Coupon Doublers, and instead of $1 off something, you get $2 off. Why are we explaining this? You all know what we're talking about. That is a Tops checkout pictured, by the way, in the News file photo above.
Buzz contacted our resident coupon expert, Ryan Lysarz, who gave us advice once when we wrote a story on coupons for The News' business section. We asked him what his strategy was this week for capitalizing on this special.

Don't ask us how or why, but Buzz wound up on the St. Stanislaus Church Web site, reading this recipe for bigos. Bigos is a Polish hunter's stew you make in a crock pot.
You need a six-pack of Zywiec and reading the recipe you see why.
Actually the recipe looks pretty good. One of these days we will make bigos.
And follow the instructions, exactly!

God love Teddy Roosevelt, he never took a bad picture!
And the icing on the cake, or should we say the slick of mozzarella on the pie, is that he is a heck of a pizza salesman.

Surely St. Valentine is smiling down on the Sloan Supermarket -- pictured above -- where they are celebrating his feast tomorrow with, well, a feast.
They are called Sweetheart Specials. For $20 you get two 8-oz. New York strip steaks, two 3-oz. lobster tails, two twice-baked potatoes, one of those one-pound salad mix bags, and a dessert. What dessert, you ask? We were too amazed to check. We will have to let you know.
There are two kinds of shoppers at the Sloan Supermarket ...

In the continuing saga of Anderson Cooper dissing Dyngus Day, we love how festival organizer "Airborne Eddy" Dobosiewicz fights on, like a hero out of a ballad by Adam Mickiewicz, pictured above.
Most recently, Eddy was greviously insulted by Cooper's dodging out of this year's Dyngus Day festivities. Cooper gave some excuse, something about "60 Minutes," but Eddy will have none of it, not that we blame him.
In today's Buffalo News Eddy is quoted on the op-ed page page A8, at the top. He is one of two quotes! The other is by Douglas J. Sarno, representing the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, discussing a funding threat to nuclear waste cleanup in Niagara County.
"We're going to make his life miserable," Eddy is quoted as saying, about Anderson Cooper.
Eddy says he was quoted out of context.
He said what he really said was:

This is a postcard we saw at Taza Coffee Shop, on Elmwood Avenue, after our trip to Toronto.
We loved this postcard! Seeing the front of it makes the picture complete.

We all love Toronto, pictured above, because it's big and exciting. But then there are these slight inconveniences.
Such as ... You are in your car and you would like a cup of coffee.
There is construction everywhere -- huge, devastating, catastrophic, constant construction, with big piles of dirt and barrels all over the place and streets blocked off. The traffic is relentless and there is no pulling over, let alone parking. Parades of pedestrians are everywhere. Trolleys are clanging past. Stop for coffee? Are you dreaming?
Sure, Buffalo wishes that we walked more, that we had more construction, that we we had more people. But still. But still.
Admit it ...

Every once in a while you get a story in The News chock-full of gossip. In Wednesday's paper it is restaurant gossip!
This is on page B3, top of the page. Joe's Deli, of Hertel and Colvin fame, is moving to 534 Elmwood, where Off the Wall used to be. No restaurant seems to hang on there for long. Good luck, Joe!
Caramici's Bistro and Bakery will soon be open at 1503 Hertel, formerly home to La Marina and Victor's Bar and Grille. Note: ...
