This week, I'm reviewing the Pilot from JetPort in Town of Niagara. The Pilot is JetPort's take on a patty melt: a 1/3 lb burger with grilled onions and cheese on rye. Honestly, the Pilot is ridiculously good. Crispy and hot, it's a patty melt to be reckoned with. My friend got a bacon burger, … Continue reading JetPort Pilot review
Put everything on it. EVERYTHING.

The Olympia Restaurant in North Tonawanda has an excellent open souvlaki.
I wear my sunglasses at night because I have sensitive eyes. 1984's "Sunglasses at Night" is the only thing anybody cares about from Corey Hart. This song has some really good guitar. It's a medium paced song that works. The real kicker in the music is the panning keyboard (which turns from epic to annoying … Continue reading “Sunglasses at Night” Corey Hart Review
