They say you shouldn't mess with a good thing, and while I've only been to Oliver's a couple times (it's expensive, and you didn't think I was gettin' rich from this gig, did you?), the restaurant clearly sticks to that saying -- at least when it comes to their decor.
If you're looking for a dessert recipe, you've come to the wrong place. A turk-cake is not one of those (sorta creepy) turkey-shaped cakes you bring out at the end of a Thanksgiving meal. A turk-cake is the Thanksgiving meal!
Looking at the bottom half of the above postcard, can you tell what the old Greyhound Bus Terminal is today? And, no, the answer is not "a pile of rubble" -- this puppy (ha, I'm punny!) is still (mostly) standing.
Here's a hint: This bus terminal was located a few blocks away from the current bus station on Ellicott Street, on Main Street.
Every day as I walk to and from my car, I pass the Buffalo Public Library's Central Branch, which is just across Lafayette Square from our dumpy little studio. It's clear from the old photo of the Square above that a very pretty, old building used to be where the library stands now -- but what was it?
A few years ago -- 2008, to be exact -- Green Day released an album under the name Foxboro Hot Tubs. 'Stop Drop and Roll!!!' was some mighty fine '60s rock -- at least, as fine as one would expect from a West Coast '90s punk band.
Buffalo has the unfortunately designation of being the place where President William McKinley was assassinated (among other unfortunate designations we've received over the years). Fortunately, that misfortune (are you confused yet?) contributed a very recognizable landmark to our city.
