Five Ways To Get Buffalonians Mad
I just moved here a year ago, but within a month I learned a few things about what NOT to say or do in this great place. Here are FIVE things that will immediately tick off someone from Western New York!
There really is a lot to New York State besides New York City. Western and Upstate New York offer everything--hiking, climbing, cities, shopping, better cost of living--life is good "up here."
Everyone knows that real chicken wings originated in Buffalo, but NOT everyone knows how to eat them properly. I've run into way too many people who eat wings with ranch and not blue cheese--blasphemy!
Yes, it snows. Yes, we're aware. When it's not snowing though, WNY (and Buffalo in particular) is absolutely wonderful. From gorgeous fall foliage to warm and busy summers, we are so, so much more than snow.
Go ahead, I dare ya. Walk into any bar in Buffalo and yell the words "wide right." You'll get a wing-bone chucked at your head--and you deserve it, you jerk!
There are literally too many great restaurants to count. Any suggestion that you eat at an Applebee's, or Olive Garden, or--God forbid--Buffalo Wild Wings will (and should) be met with complete scorn. Get some real food while you're here, people!
