National studies often lend local insight, and Vox.com's quintet of beer maps explains, to some degree, Western New York's relationship with beer. The study was conducted by Matthew Zook and Art Poorthuis, primarily by aggregating geo-tagged tweets, and the results were published in their book "The Geography of Beer."

You can thank Ren, and, well, Ren's Mom. Ren's List, a website that details local places where you can and cannot walk your dog, is the product of Jaclyn McKewan, a suburban dog owner with the willingness to fill a void and inform the public. The site's "about" page -- where McKewan is simply referred to as "Ren's Mom" -- clarifies the genesis of the site: Ren, a short-h…

Make no mistake: Rob Gronkowski is working feverishly to take "being a bro" to a whole new level. Decked out with sunglasses and a post-workout recovery drink, Gronk shows off a shirt of a guy who's wearing a shirt of him. [bn_tweet url="http://twitter.com/RobGronkowski/status/468841428765130752"] Shocking? Not really. After all, this is the time of year when the New En…

Don't let the name Manchester Orchestra confuse you. The indie rock band, which bounds into Town Ballroom with a full bill at 6 p.m. May 20, is neither from Manchester, England, nor resembles an orchestra in the traditional sense.

For a city that smacks its lips at $.50 chicken wings and endures seven months of Siberia, Buffalo doesn't seem like it would rank among the most fit cities in America. This study by BodyBuilding.com, however, rebels against perceptions. The Nickel City ranks No. 5 out of the website's Strength in Numbers: 10 Ripped Cities article posted on April 25, an achievement that …

The season of runny noses, watery eyes and thunderous sneezes is in full bloom -- pardon the horrible pun -- and much of America is forced to cope with the downside of warm weather's arrival.
