Our friends Kate and Dana, keepers of pierogi, kielbasa and kraut and the creators of one of our fav food trucks, Betty Crockski have but pen to paper (you know what we mean) in hopes that you’ll come to the East Side Dyngus Day festivities prepared to party hardy. Read on and click through to Betty’s blog for tips on optimizing and surviving Dyngus Day in Old Polonia.

“We’re just five days away from the Greatest Day of the Year and your buds here at Betty Crockski want to make sure you’re well prepared to maximize the Dyngus Day experience. It is a day to celebrate our city, our cultural heritage, and our drinking abilities, so for those not in the know, here’s how you do it:

Dyngus Day is the Monday after Easter, a day to go wild after weeks of Lenten do-goodery, the bookend to Mardi Gras, if you will. What started in the 60s as a few small parties on the East Side has grown into a national phenomenon. Buffalo celebrates Dyngus Day with greater fanfare than anywhere in the country (even in Poland), the byproduct of Polish immigrants fervently preserving their culture.”

Without question, the best place to celebrate is on the East Side in Old Polonia.  Buffalo’s Polish heritage is preserved within this struggling neighborhood, and it comes alive for Dyngus Day. For one day, the streets are filled, and we’d love for you to spend your drinking dollars cash-mobbing Old Polonia and the small businesses working hard to keep the neighborhood alive the other 364 days of the year.  Who wants to be corralled under a beer tent, anyway? “
