Introducing our newest mini series… “SOB’s Fast 5 Stories”. What started as a podcast series within Step Out Buffalo’s podcast feed (listen here!) where Lauren and Emily run through 5 fun “news” stories that we think you should know ASAP is now a written series too. Best part is, these topics are discussed in a super short format to get you in the know and on your way as quickly as possible.

Where do we get our info? Simple. The street, Instagram, office gossip, keeping our eyes peeled around town. We have our ways. Regardless, we got you covered. Whether you read it or listen to it, WDC (we don’t care), just get it in, fam.


This Week’s Fast 5 Stories:

1. There’s A Gourmet Ice Cream Sandwich Pop-up Shop! 

What, no way? Nickel City Vice is serving up some gourmet ice cream sandwiches! BUT, you’ll have to follow them on Instagram in order to see where they’re going to “pop up” next! Some of their flavors include fun-fetti cake batter, cinnamon cream cheese, or try an edible cookie dough “sandwich.” Say no more.
