thanks all, esp. did, whose post I didn't see because my hotel didn't have wi fi access just yet. I reinjured my calf doing jumps and plyos the day before the trip, so I took Friday off and just ran 3 miles each day, Saturday and Sunday, while I was in Buffalo before going back to 14/15 the past couple of days at home. However, I jogged (no calf pushoff) in Delaware Park on Saturday, a nice place to run with various trails and what to me look like hills because I live in a place that's as flat as a pancake. And on Sunday I jogged a loop around the hilly Forest Lawn Cemetery, maybe 2 or 3 miles, and saw the Frank Lloyd Wright building. That's a very nice course and you can even run on dirt roads in parts of the interior. If I lived in Buffalo, I could easily do a lot of my running there without getting bored, and it is great for hill sprints, plus very few cars to watch out for.
On the food angle, the city did well. On Friday, I got a hot dog and a sausage, both with peppers, from a street vendor on the way into the games. They were good. During the games, I got a "beef on Weck," which is a thin sliced roast beef sandwich on a salt roll. That was pretty good. Between games, we walked down Main past a lot of classic architecture down to the Anchor Bar. It was packed, so we ate around the corner at a sub shop called maybe Chuck's. I had a steak hoagy and a thick chocolate milk shake. Very tasty. On Saturday, we went to the Original Pancake House in Williamsville, where I got the outstanding "Dutch Baby," a sort of baked, stuffed pancake, rubbed with butter and powdered sugar and with strawberries and maple syrup. Very, very good, and it came out promptly. For an early dinner, we went to Anderson's for a beef on weck and another chocolate milkshake. The roll was good and the milkshake excellent. THen for a later dinner we went to the Buffalo Brewpub and got wings and stouts. The stout was good (not their own), and the wings were edible and not that hot, but certainly nothing like the Steelers bar in Elmira. On Sunday, I got two Italian sausages and a Polish sausage with peppers, charcoal grilled, and french fries and a chocolate milkshake at Ted's in Kenmore (since 1927). Outstanding! A very good low food city.
