Getting healthy, nailing that promotion, sorting our your finances – they’re all respectable resolutions. But frankly, they’re boring af, which is why we here at Step Out Buffalo are challenging you to really step out of your comfort zone in 2017 with the Buffalo Bucket List Challenge. We know it can be difficult to constantly come up with new and exciting ways to enjoy your time here on planet earth, and more specifically Western New York, so we’re doing the work for you. Every Wednesday this year we’ll publish a new Buffalo Bucket List Challenge post with a fun / interesting / exciting / unique “task” to try.

Where To Eat: When is Lancaster, one of my all-time favorite spots to eat is the Yelling Goat.  They have awesome gourmet grilled cheeses, burgers, salads, pizzas, sandwiches, and more. Not to mention some rather out-of-the-norm pizza toppings options like clams, duck breast, salty anchovies, prosciutto, and creamy brie cheese.  I highly recommend the Tart Cherries and Bleu Pie made with mozzarella, garlic, olive oil, caramelized onions, bleu cheese, peppery arugula, and tart cherries.  Trust me when I say you won’t regret adding crispy bacon to this pie, too. Delicious!
