Buffalo: KeyBank Center vs Sabres

The Ducks lost the last 2 games played in Toronto and Montreal.  We were hoping that this last game of the road trip would turn out better.  The KeyBank Center is located down the street from our hotel, and was within the “free zone” of the local metro […]

My birthday dinner at EATaly

My sister and brother in law ate here when they were in NYC.  They raved about the authenticity of the Italian food, we just had to try it.  So, for my birthday, we came here for dinner.  The place is divided into sections, such as a meat section, […]
