Kind strangers, light traffic, Pizza Plant pods, resilient/unfussy people, the first snow, close proximity to Niagara Falls, #BillsMafia, Clarence Town Park, Canalside, Molsen Canadian,
dozens of family/friends I love dearly, happy memories of my mom everywhere I look #buffalove

Some businesses offered 716-themed specials, mostly on chicken wings and other Buffalo food favorites.
Oh, and it was also the first-ever National Blue Cheese Dressing Day. What a time to be alive.

July 16 almost has the feeling of a pseudo-holiday in Buffalo. You would never think three numbers would mean so much to not only you but to an entire region. I am proud to call Buffalo (and the 716 area code) my home – now and forever.
