By Andrew Z. Galarneau

Organizers of a new event slated for April - the Buffalo Cherry Blossom Festival - have set a Sunday fundraiser in one of the most interesting restaurant spaces in town.

According to a December Buffalo News article by Michelle Kearns:

"A 12-day Buffalo Cherry Blossom Festival, with a 'pink-tie' gala, garden tours, origami kite flying, a pink-and-white costume parade, rides on a pink boat, tea ceremonies, concerts and Japanese food and films is scheduled for late April and early May."

The festival was announced at the Buffalo History Museum, "where organizers spoke next to a window that offered a view of snow falling on the museum’s lakeside Japanese Garden, which is to be the main site of the new spring celebrations. The series of events, to be held from April 23 through May 4, will highlight the city’s park plantings and Japanese and international connections."

The Cherry Blossom Festival fundraiser is Sunday, Feb. 9, 3-6 p.m. at Martin Cooks, 346 Connecticut St. Chef Martin Danilowicz offers lunch, prix fixe dinners and boutique food shopping in first floor of the former Horsefeathers building.

Suggested donation at the door is $30 for food and drink.
