    I'm going to see a Habs/Sabres game in November. I was wondering if you guys can suggest some good bars and Restaurants? I'm heading to the game on Friday, and we're staying there all Saturday and coming back on Sunday.

    Suggestions?

    The Pearl Street Grill is pretty good

    Stay at the Adams Mark Hotel. It's within walking distance of the rink. Not flashy but it's where the visiting teams stay---at least the Sens did when HC & I went there a couple of years ago

    There are a couple of Buffalo people on sj. They'd have more ideas than these two

    Go to the Anchor Bar, where buffalo wings were invented.

    Anchor Bar is nice just for the experience, but take a minute to go to Duffs. Not sure what type of crowd you're into when it comes to drinking, but you have a few options: Elmwood (not as crazy/college style), Chippewa (crazy shit fests), and Allen Town (relaxed vibe).

    That's all I got. I haven't lived in WNY since '07 and a lot of bars/restaurants come and go. Pear Street is okay. I feel that's a hot spot before any Sabres game. Decent food and a fun atmosphere.

    Leave your bag behind without identification at the Greyhound station. Take bus to Cleveland before realizing bag didn't make the trip. Call Buffalo station and have them tell you the bomb squad "most likely blew up the bag since it didn't have any ID."

    Go to Pearl Street Grill, and also go to Niagara Falls, Ont. for the casinos and ballet.

    My cousin owns a bar on Chippewa Street called City Tavern. Only opened this summer. I haven't had chance to get there yet, but it's supposed to be good.

    How old are you? I think his place skews to the young side, like most of Chippewa.
