Highlights

What started as a project out of their kitchens, grew to a brick and mortar right in the heart of downtown.
It’s called Buffalo Barkery… Owned and operated by two animal-loving sisters-in-law, who decided to treat the dogs of Western New York with flavors known best by locals.

As part of our Halloween series celebrating famous (fictional) Dwaynes throughout Buffalo history, we present Dwayne Beaupre St. Clair. Born too late to take part in the revolution, young Dwayne was raised on his pappys knee hearing tales of fortune & bravery down in Knoxville Tennessee.  When war against the British in 1812 seemed inevitable, he packed his best linen suit & sunscreen before setting out to Buffalo to fight with the then fledgling American army.  Ignoring his mothers advice to pack a sweater, he found himself camping in what is now Delaware Park huddled together with hundreds of other volunteers unfamiliar with the western NY concept of ‘Lake Effect Snow”. He was found frozen to death with 300 of his comrades, having never fired a shot. Here’s to you brave young mr St. Clair. If only you had listened to your mother. #edibledwayne #halloween2019 #buffalofood

Buffalo is removing the skyway. No matter what your opinion is on the removal decision, can we all agree that this (see the photo above taken today of a half empty parking lot of cars parking on dirt under the skyway for $5 a day) is not the highest and best use of our limited downtown land? K, thanks, bye. ❤️

Buffalo is more progressive than Portland: The 50 most liberal cities in the U.S., ranked
.
“In 2014, political scientists Chris Tausanovitch and Christopher Warshaw published a paper that examined "the degree to which cities are responsive to the views of their citizens." And by tracking popular public policy (via a variety of opinion surveys over 10 years), they ended up ranking the U.S.'s most liberal and conservative large cities -- metropolises that have more than 250,000 residents.”

Buffalo sculpture is reminiscent of the work of Larry Griffis Jr.
.
Larry W. Griffis Jr. (1924-2000) made a name for himself as one of the most prolific artists to ever live in Buffalo. His legacy lives on, via his impressive sculptural works in the city, at Griffis Sculpture Park, and throughout the world. Locally, you may be familiar with Spirit of Womanhood along the Scajaquada Expressway, and Birds Excited Into Flight on Bidwell Parkway.
.
These days, Larry’s grandson, Tyler Griffis, is doing his best to honor his grandfather’s legacy. Not only was Tyler happy to help deliver a Griffis Sculpture Park work to the Outer Harbor – called Flatman – he’s also been experimenting with welding processes that can be attributed to Larry himself.

"In his work for Buffalo Rising, contributing editor Dan Coughlin has placed the spotlight on two unique, local food businesses. Flat #12 Mushrooms has found such a demand for its locally-grown product that it is looking to expand production by almost 400 percent. Meanwhile, a new venture, Protein Responsibly, is gaining accolades and attention for its burgers which use mealworms as a base ingredient. They see it as an environmentally-friendly alternative to using beef."

BIG Reveal: $30M Golf & Hotel Complex Proposed for Ganson Street
.
A $30 million golf and hotel complex is planned for a seven-acre Ganson Street site.  Doug Swift along with Carubba Collision President Joe Carubba and OnCore Golf CEO Keith Blakely are planning the facility that is south of RiverWorks.  The investment group purchased the property in late-August.
.
The OnCore Buffalo facility will include a Top Golf-like, three tier driving range and a 120 to 160-room hotel on the north end of the complex.  The driving range area will be elevated with parking underneath.  It will also be heated, so the facility will be open year-round without the need for a dome, and would employ 500.

September 13 was the start of #Welcomeweek a week-long movement and celebration of immigrants and all that they do for our community!
Immigrants boost our economy, our diversity, and strengthen Buffalo. Each day the International Institute of Buffalo will share a welcome week post highlighting what immigrants do or could do for our economy.

Major buildings downtown will be illuminated orange tonight  to celebrate welcome week and the contributions of immigrants.

Send us your best photo of an orange downtown and we might feature your photo this week! 
#Buffalowelcomesrefugees #immigrantsmakeamericagreat #Refugeeswelcome #immigration #greateras1 
Welcome Buffalo's immigrants yourself with a donation of a household good. As our new neighbors arrive it can be hard to afford basic items essential for a comfortable and healthy home, give what you can here: https://amzn.to/2lVO6vD

We recently wrote about Tom and Caitlin Moriarty purchasing 1652 Elmwood Avenue, former home to Vino’s Restaurant.
.
“Our goal has always been to own and to live above the shop,” said Caitlin Moriarty. “So this opportunity was really exciting for those reasons. We’ve just had two one year leases on Grant Street so we look forward to really building roots here for the future.”
.
Last month we stopped by Moriarty Meats on Grant Street to talk with Tom and Caitlin about their Butchery, with a team of talented visual storytellers.
.
Esteemed local photographer, Luke Copping @lukecopping , created the portraits shown here and along with videographer, Andy Morin @andymorin_ and Buffalo Rising’s Devin Chavanne @devinchavanne directed the conversation with the Moriartys you can find under our Instagram TV tab as well as at the LINK IN BIO.

"Women of Stitch Buffalo by Luke Copping" by Holly Metz Doyle
.
Stitch Buffalo on Niagara Street is full of dynamic energy, incredible artistic workmanship, and beautiful women with compelling stories. Each of these women learned their skill of intricate embroidery while living in refugee camps as part of their journey to America. They continue to hone their craft under the guidance of fiber specialist and Stitch founder Dawne Hoeg. Their faces reflect the complexity of their lives and we are grateful to photographer Luke Copping for so eloquently capturing their essence in these profiles.
.
HKAWNG LUNG (68) is originally from Burma and left in 2009.
.
"Life in Burma is not safe for women and children. Soldiers rape and beat women and children, there is no safety there for us. I was a refugee in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia until 2015 when I came to America because it was still very unsafe there. My husband is still in Burma, but is trying now to come to Buffalo to be with me. It is not easy, we are doing all the paperwork now."
.
DO YOU HAVE ANY CHILDREN?
I have two sons and one daughter. One of my son’s is with me in Buffalo and he is 40 years-old, my other son and daughter are with my husband in Burma.
.
HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN WORKING AT STITCH?
Over a year.
.
WHY DO YOU LIKE TO COME TO STITCH?
I learned embroidery in Burma and Malaysia. It is good to make money to support myself.
.
DO YOU LIKE LIVING IN BUFFALO?
I am happy here in Buffalo. I can do whatever I want here, I can work here and make money, and that makes me very happy.
