I was a little surprised when I got into downtown Buffalo at how deserted it all seemed to be. It was kind of depressing in a way with businesses boarded up and few people around. It proved to be fairly problematic because tickets to the Frozen Four on semi-final day allow for a little time between games to get out and grab a bite to eat or something to drink. I think there was one or two restaurants even open in the downtown area near the stadium. They were a bit overwhelmed for the event, I think.
These weekends always have a free-Friday without games. We took full advantage of this to go to Orchard Park to see where the Buffalo Bills play and to grab a bite to eat at a sports bar near the stadium. Beef on Weck is a fantastic sandwich that I have tried to recreate at home (With varying degrees of success). We also spent one of our meals at The Anchor Bar, which is where the Buffalo Wing was born.
I can't remember who won the hockey tournament that year, but it was a good time as always. I do hope good things happen to the downtown area in Buffalo. It needs help.
