Going out to dinner? Enjoy fellowship.
Dine Arounds bring conference attendees together.
To register for a Dine Around, use the form at the bottom of this page.
Here is a Google Map of the Dine Around restaurant options with a few additional locations tucked in:
Canalside is one of the additional locations. Thursday June 13th, Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros with special guests St. Lucia and The Room will give a free concert Canalside http://www.canalsidebuffalo.com/. If interested, consider the Pearl St. Brewery (three floors, very spacious) Dine Around option and then walk over to the canal for music (half mile walk). There are two eateries Canalside, Clinton’s Dish (“shack” with walk-up window) and The Liberty Hound (sit-down restaurant), but they are sure to be crowded.
Another additional location on the map is Sportsmen’s Tavern. While Canalside is furthest downtown, for those looking for music closer to campus, a brief jaunt from the dormitory takes you to Sportsmen’s, http://sportsmenstavern.com/home.
If walkable-from-campus is what you want, but tavern food is not, the Blackrock Kitchen, http://www.blackrockkitchenandbar.com/menu.php, has good food which you can follow up with music at Sportsman’s (see site for Wed and Thurs acts or to buy tickets). Best to call Blackrock Kitchen for reservations.
Another option not listed in the Dine Arounds sign-up form (was too new… the place just opened June 10th) is Joe’s on Elmwood. I can’t stress enough how good the food is at Joe’s. They opened this second location because the one on Hertel Ave is always packed. 534 Elmwood Ave. on the Google map.
The Dine Arounds include many good “large group” eateries up and down Elmwood Ave. The steak appetizer and lasagna at Vinos (up) is excellent and the proprietors, good people, tend bar and cook. Gabriel’s Gate is the best option for wings and they have a patio in back. Blue Monk has excellent beers, not inexpensive. Best taps in the city are probably at Coles, which also has good wings and is close to campus.
Food is one strong point about Buffalo. Enjoy!
