Now we are attempting to blog from an iPhone so please excuse any typos!
Last weekend I made the 3.5 hour trip to Buffalo to watch the Penguins take on the Buffalo Sabres and it was cold. You know it’s cold when you get excited to see the thermometer in your car hit 25 when you return to Pittsburgh.
After a very late arrival, we headed out to Chippewa Street– which is much like East Carson Street in Pittsburgh. However, the crowd was more late 20s- early 30s and you didn’t see any girls walking around mini skirts and heels. These people wore boots and jeans. They dressed weather appropriate. We visited a sports bar and enjoyed multiple hockey games from around the league. This bar was packed with people wearing Pens jerseys!
Finding a nice hotel –at a reasonable price– since we were basically only going to be sleeping there. We decided on a Red Roof Inn- I was rather nervous! However, this hotel was gorgeous! Everything was brand new. You could smell the fresh paint. I highly recommend the Red Roof Inn in Buffalo!
The next day it was time for some hockey! The puck dropped at 12:35. Before hand, we enjoyed some Dunkin Donuts! If you have never had a brownie batter donut, I strongly recommend trying one! The game was awesome and packed with Pens fans and we one!
Next it was time for Niagara Falls, USA and the Fashion Outlets of Niagara Falls!
The Falls are beautiful in the winter. However, the mist that typically comes from the Falls was not water…it was actually little pieces of ice! It was cold and windy….next time I return there, I will be making sure it’s warm out!
The Fashion Outlets were awesome. $500 worth of Kate Spade for $120. Yes, please!
We wrapped up our trip with a stop at the Anchor Bar!
More on that later!
