The Walden Galleria is more than a mall. Just like any shopping center, you’ll find a variety of retail stores, but the Galleria offers so much more than what comes to mind as you’re passing by on the 90.
A trip to the Walden Galleria can be an all-day experience – grab a beer before you shop, enjoy a meal after you’re done, and add playtime into the mix. Here are a few things you may have forgotten about at Walden Galleria that should not be overlooked:
1. Shop Trendy Everything at Zara
Zara is everything a trendsetter could want and more, and the fact that we no longer have to cross the border to get to the nearest Zara is giving us *life*. A new two-level store opened this past weekend, and fashionistas are already obsessing. This Spanish fashion chain is always on-trend, so a location in Buffalo is a BFD.
2. Pour A Glass at The World of Beer
World of Beer is a beer traveler’s dream. They have 550+ beers from around the world to discover. This beer list is no joke, and the staff will be your guide for your beer-venture.
Love a deal? Classic burgers and Guinness Bratwurst are only $5 on Mondays. Buy a Bomber beer on a Thursday and get a free German pretzel. Every Sunday is Service Industry Night aka 40% OFF beer and spirits from 6 p.m. until close. You’re welcome.
3. Go Interactive Adventuring at 5 Wits
Dinner and adventure is the new “dinner and a movie”, and this is one date night activity you need on your calendar. The live-action entertainment is immersive af. You choose your own adventure – navigate a dangerous asteroid storm, unlock medieval mysteries, or solve ancient puzzles in a Pharaoh’s tomb.
Love a deal? Your same-day admission receipt gets you a discount off your meal at Gordon Biersch, World of Beer, or Bravo Italiana. Like we said, dinner and adventure. The questions is, which one will you do first?
4. Eat ALL the Steak at Texas De Brazil
The only thing better than a steakhouse is an all-you-can-eat steakhouse. And you really can’t go wrong with Brazilian cooking and Southern Texas hospitality. After a day of shopping, you’ve earned this epic, endless meal. There’s much more on the menu than just meat, including new seasonal items to choose from. If you’re a food-lover, do yourself a favor and sit down for a meal and experience.
5. Shop and/or Sweat at Lululemon
Once you go Lulu you don’t go back. These leggings are #life. If you own a pair, you know these babies are your go-to “pants” of choice. From everyday wear to active apparel, Lululemon is queen. Come to shop or come to sweat. Did you know Lululemon Buffalo offers in-store classes? Yoga, CrossFit, Boot Camp, and more! Check their Facebook for deets on upcoming events.
6. Find a Gift at Lush
Lush has ALL the goodies. These fresh handmade cosmetics are in a class of their own. Everything is made from fresh, organic fruit and vegetables, essential oils, and safe synthetics. Gift shopping a Lush is so easy it can feel like there’s a catch. Gift packages are already put together, so you can grab and go. Plus, the staff is extra helpful. If you can’t decide on just the right gift for a special someone, just ask!
Pro Tip: If you have an allergy, shopping at Lush is always the move.
7. Eat, Drink, Play at Dave & Buster’s
Come to eat, come to drink, come to play. Dave & Buster’s is the spot to enjoy all your favorite hobbies. You’ll find pool, bowling, and all sorts of arcade games here. If you have kiddos, you know this the ultimate family night outing. #beacoolmom Get in touch with your inner kid.
Love a deal? Games are ½ price every Wednesday. PLUS, they have happy hour specials from 4:30 to 7:00 p.m. Monday through Friday and late-night specials from 10 p.m. to midnight Sunday through Thursday.
8. Give x 2 at BoxLunch
The “get some, give back” message is what makes BoxLunch so incredible. You’ll find all sorts of super cool pop culture merch here (aka all the nostalgia). More importantly your purchase benefits a worthy cause. BoxLunch’s provides meals to people who need them. When every gift gives back, shopping is guilt-free, right?
