In the "Homeland" aka Buffalo
Buffalo Travel Blog› entry 3 of 10 › view all entries
So we arrived in Buffalo about lunchtime. Scott was more excited than he let on, I think, to be in the "homeland"! He was really funny...still trying to be cool and non-touristy, but he was excited. He was born there, but had not been back since they moved to California when he was 5 or 6. He claims New Yorker status still...that's where he learned to talk, so thats why he has the accent he has...learned to ice skate before he could walk...etc. Hmmm....
Anyway, we got our rental car and decided to go right for lunch at the Anchor Bar...none other than the birthplace of chicken wings. The Anchor is close to downtown and has a hometown, eclectic feel. See my accompanying review for the details. The wings and pizza were really good, but Scott and I agreed that Sue's wings are better! :) She did, after all, learn to make buffalo wings while they lived in Buffalo!
After stuffing ourselves silly with greasy food, we set out to find Scott's old houses and other haunts from his childhood.
We also promptly found the Starbucks and drove around cute little Amhearst before setting off to Canada.
