Many Western New Yorkers knew their faces before they ever knew what Sonic tasted like. Years before Sonic Drive-In appeared in the Buffalo Niagara market, the quick-serve chain's TV commercials whipped up robust cravings among Western New Yorkers. This weekend, customers can meet that commercial's stars and personally thank them for their introduction to Cherry Limeaids and Sonic Tots.
T.J. Jagodowski and Peter Grosz will appear at the 3601 Union Road store in Cheektowaga from noon to 4 p.m. Sunday. They'll meet and greet fans and pose for pictures as part of the Sonic Summerfest.
Also featured that day will be BMX and rollerblading stunt shows from Dialed Action Sports Team, a magician, face painter, tattoo artists and giveaways. Admission is free.
