Friday Minutes

Friday Minutes: Something for Everyone

It’s been a crazy week. The Buffalo Bills won their 4th in a row, both of us won our fantasy football games, the weather has gone from the 70s to 50s, the debates are finally over, and we still haven’t packed a single item for our trip to Mexico. Basically, we’ve done a lot of reading to help us procrastinate this week…

This week Friday Minutes contains highlights from candy corn to fall activities, and even a little bit of Trump. Thanks for all the great articles, they’ve helped us get through the week. Also, congratulations to Washington, DC restaurants who were recognized in the recent Michelin Guide (Washingtonian)

Noteworthy Articles:

DC/WNY Blogs:

How do you feel about that addictive or disgusting yellow, orange, and white Halloween treat? Well, Hungry Lobbyist certainly has a strong opinion.

We love the most recent Yeah! Buffalo interview with Jamil Crews, who has lived between DC and Buffalo over the last decade, and is working hard to make the rest of the world see how wonderful it truly is, event to those who live there. It’s not us, but it sounds familiar.
