Walden Galleria to Host "Red Cross Night"

Walden Galleria to Host "Red Cross Night"

March is Red Cross Month, and Walden Galleria is supporting the local Chapter through “Red Cross Night” this Wednesday, March 7th. From 5pm until closing time, three Walden Galleria restaurants-Bravo, Gordon Biersch and The Melting Pot-will donate 10% of every customer’s bill to the American Red Cross, Serving Erie & Niagara Counties.

“We are so grateful to Walden Galleria for supporting our mission of preventing, preparing for and responding to disaster here in Western New York,” said Emily Shafer, American Red Cross Development Associate. “The best part of this event is that customers can support the Red Cross by doing nothing more than enjoying a great meal with their friends or family on Wednesday evening.”

Keep Warm with Nelson's Ridge Hotcakes this Winter

Keep Warm with Nelson's Ridge Hotcakes this Winter

Last weekend I was pretty excited that Alli and I managed to eat the majority of our meals in the South Buffalo area. We picked up some food from English Pork Pie Company, stopped by Nine Eleven for some delicious Chicken Wings (arguably the best in Buffalo) and started our Saturday off with some breakfast at the recently opened Nelson’s Ridge.

Swirls Cupcakery Is a Hidden Gem

Swirls Cupcakery Is a Hidden Gem

Our cupcake consumption has really increased in the last two months.  With the opening of 3 new cupcake boutiques (two in the southtowns!) we’ve really stepped up our cupcake game.  Alli and I have wanted to visit Swirls Cupcakery for a long time now but because of work we couldn’t make it down during the week (they are only open until 5 on weekdays and 8 on Fridays and Saturdays) and our weekends have been really busy.  But last weekend we made a point to schedule a drive and finally sample their cupcakes.

Gourmet Cupcakes are Coming to Orchard Park

Gourmet Cupcakes are Coming to Orchard Park

There is currently a Cupcake revolution happening in the southtowns.  Ok, that might be an exaggeration but soon there will be two gourmet Cupcake shops; Swirls in East Aurora and The Cupcake Orchard in Orchard Park.  Swirls isn’t open for business yet but The Cupcake Orchard just had their grand opening on October 8th and just days later had a great Groupon deal, so Alli and I didn’t waste any time taking the trip to our hometown.
