Hi Rich, and I'll second that. My favourite Buffalo watering hole was the wing-famous Anchor Bar with the tellys tuned to cameras in the parking lot so patrons could keep track of their vehicles. Oh the nights I've wasted with Dodee Green. Alas, exchange rates, combined with my second-favourite cross-border wing destination, Honey's, opening a franchise here in the Hammer, have curtailed such hands-on cultural explorations.

As for texts, I've read a number of references to Buffalo in HB books, mostly supporting the notion that it's a good place to be from, but can't recall any that actually take place in the city. Who, please, will correct this gap in my education?
