    Lebron James Pizza : BLAZE

    Late 2017

    NBA Star Lebron James has a pizza place that is coming to Amherst real soon! It's called BLAZE Pizza and lets you come in and make your own 11-inch pizzas and go down an assembly line and tell the workers which toppings you'd like. (Think Subway for pizzas).

    It's going to go in The Boulevard complex which off Niagara Falls Boulevard in Amherst.

    Hofbrauhaus

    January 2018

    This place is a riot. There is a huge number of Germans here in Western New York including a large Schuhplattler group, SGTV Edelweiss, in Buffalo as well. Picture Oktoberfest but every single day.

    Buffalo has been slated to get one for a few years, but there is always a hold up. The wait will finally be over when it comes to Scott Street
