The brave few who ventured out several hou…

I have been thinking about this moment for 24 hours, since my editor approached my desk, told me I’d be covering the Taste of Buffalo and instructed me to “have fun with it.” Oh, I will. My stomach was rumbling seconds after the words left his lips. Nothing else mattered Friday. Not LeBron James. Nothing. All I could think about was my upcoming visit to the outdoor Buffa…

It is like Buffalo scoring architecture by Frank Lloyd Wright, Louis Sulliva…
