If there’s one thing Buffalonians like to do, its EAT! You say eating and drinking isn’t a hobby? Wrong, wrong, and wrong again.

Eating and drinking is actually our favorite pastime here in Western New York. Whether its at a bar, restaurant, festival, fair, food truck, or hot dog stand, we don’t discriminate. However there’s something about hitting a food and drink event that makes chowing down an extra fun and special experience.

Here’s a guide to upcoming food and drink events in Buffalo & WNY this month and beyond:
