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 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 Drink: The perfect spot to enjoy a nightcap is the home port for the Grand Lady, Buffalo RiverWorks! They have excellent oyster shooters, apps, and beers to enjoy on their spacious patio. You can even check out the brand new ropes course, zipline, and the silo beer garden while you’re there.
