Palmy afternoon in Buffalo, New York
Gee, a GPS makes road trips a lot more fun. You can fit in more of what you want to see when you’re not constantly getting lost. This time, in Buffalo for the day, we finally made it to the legendary Anchor Bar where buffalo wings were invented. I still prefer Coles overall for location, atmosphere, variety and prices but have to say the Anchor Bar’s wings are excellent, quite possibly the best. They’re certainly the biggest I’ve ever seen. And if you like bikes, the rafters are hung with everything from kiddies’ trikes to an old Ducati to a new Moto Guzzi.
Today, the Buffalo conservatory is one of only two remaining Lord and Burnham conservatories incorporated into an Olmsted-designed park. At 67′ tall, the main dome is magnificent, full of palms and tropical fruit trees. A globe introduces the gardens’ theme of The Buffalo Meridian, a line circumnavigating the globe, connecting the city to other people, places and plants. Buffalo is full of wonders, when you find your way.
