It's Niagara Falls mayoral election season, flock. This year's election is a big one: with current Mayor Paul Dyster not seeking reelection after three terms, the highest position in the city is up for grabs. As of writing, there are three main candidates seeking to be the face of Niagara. These two Democrats and one … Continue reading Let’s Talk About the Niagara Falls Mayoral Candidates, Shall We?
Flock, I am cursed. On my last post, I praised the amazing stuffed banana pepper and steak sub from Buffalo Wing Joint and P.U.B. It was amazing, I loved it, and I was looking forward to another one soon. Well, from the looks of things, Buffalo Wing Joint closed down. That's right. They're gone. Forever. … Continue reading Now I am become food death: destroyer of restaurants
Flock, last week after Pints for Progress, I headed over to Buffalo Wing Joint and P.U.B. on Niagara Falls Blvd. I've been meaning to check the place out for years now, and I really wish I had gone sooner. I ordered myself a Bud Light (judge accordingly) and a large stuffed banana pepper and steak … Continue reading Buffalo Wing Joint and P.U.B. Stuffed banana pepper and steak sub review
Last night, LiveNF hosted their 25th Pints for Progress at the Parkway Prime in the DoubleTree hotel. The venue, as I've repeatedly glowed about in the past, made for a different feel than the previous Pints. A solid number of people at the event made the lounge feel energized, and the bar had a variety … Continue reading Pints for Progress 25!
Flock, story time. When I was little, I was obsessed with boats. I loved classic ocean liners: they were art on water. During a visit of the Castellani Art Museum at Niagara University, I got to see the wonderful work of Justin Higner. For 25 years, Higner has been making elaborate ships out of readily-available … Continue reading Ship Happens: The Higner Maritime Collection at Castellani
Flock, Throwback Thursday came at me hard. If you're unfamiliar with my origins, I was originally a mascot for a radio show on WNIA radio. I spent a lot of quality time with a lot of quality people while there, and it will always hold a place in my heart. That being said: it's generally … Continue reading Sorry sir, WNIA machine broken
Flock, you know how much I love the old Rainbow Centre, right? I've spent countless hours scouring its remnants: from elevators to holes in the wall, I've seen it all. This is as abandoned as abandoned gets. Well, Christmas came along, and Santa delivered me something amazing, and I think it's finally time I show … Continue reading Rainbow Centre: The Opening Day Brochure
Well, the Kmart in Niagara Falls is officially history. In case you missed it, the Kmart on Military Road closed last week, riding the wave of closures and bankruptcies that parent company Sears can't seem to get out of. Now, Kmart hasn't always been the peak shopping location, but the last few years have seen … Continue reading So long, Kmart
We've made it through 2018, flock! This has been an interesting year. While the blog might have been a bit quieter than usual, I feel like the overall quality of the articles improved. One of my articles was even syndicated! Of course, I've been a busy cartoon sheep in the real world. This blog is … Continue reading Goodbye, 2018!
Merry Christmas, everyone! I hope your enjoying the holiday season. As a special Christmas gift, we have a special "Mailing Niagara"! This postcard of "A Festival of Lights" (it never was the Festival of Lights) features my favorite long-gone oasis, the Wintergarden. Even though we no longer have the iconic building, we finally have an … Continue reading Merry Christmas, Flock!
