10 Things Buffalonians Do That Seem Insane To Everyone Else
Whether you’ve been living in Buffalo for several years or have been here for your entire lifetime, there are certain things that you’ll find yourself doing not long after settling in the area. From a change in eating habits to the activities you choose, check out our list of things that Buffalonians do that seem downright crazy to everyone else.
1. We like to go flying between grain elevators.
Yes, you heard us right. Over at Buffalo RiverWorks, locals bring out the true adventurers in themselves by going ziplining between old grain elevators. To find out more about what it's like to live on the wild side in the Queen City,
2. We experience all four seasons in a day.
Sure, it may technically be spring or the calendar says we're in the midst of fall, but at any given point, you can experience all four seasons in a single day here in Buffalo. You'll see residents walking around in shorts and winter boots! Some may call us crazy but we simply call this place home.
3. No, you're not seeing things - those are Christmas lights still hanging off of our houses during summer.
Between all of the hard work it requires to hang up holiday decorations and the fact that we usually have to maneauver around snow and ice, you'll see Buffalonians just leaving their holiday lights hanging up well into summer - or even for the entire year!
4. We like to stay out until 4 a.m. and we aren't changing our minds.
Other cities may close down its bars nice and early, but many of our favorite places - like Thirsty Buffalo - stay open until 4 a.m.! Are you feeling tired yet?
5. When it comes to feasting on desserts, we prefer sponges, please!
Okay, we're not completely crazy enough to eat
actual sponges, but close enough. Here in Buffalo, we like to top things off with a bite of sponge candy after a delicious meal.
6. We cover
everything in Buffalo Dip. Seriously... we mean it.
You may use your favorite dip to accompany snacks like chips, but Buffalonians take Buffalo Dip and cover just about everything with it. It's too good - we can't help it!
7. Speaking of things we have stocked in our fridge, most Buffalonians will only eat Sahlen's.
You can find all sorts of delicious hot dog joints around Buffalo, but when it comes to the best of the best, locals prefer to eat Sahlen's.
8. Hot Dogs aren't the only thing we're particular about!
If you want to find your way to the center of a Buffalonians heart, make sure your fridge is stocked full of the original Loganberry.
9. Our favorite hang out spots will make your head turn.
Take places like The Old Pink, for example. From the outside, this bar and restaurant resembles something you might take for a witch's cauldron. In fact, this is one of the most whimsical spots you can visit in the city.
10. Buffalonians take tailgating to the next level.
With the way that Buffalonians tailgate, you could really give this entire activity a whole new name. If you've never experienced what it's like to go tailgating before a Buffalo Bills game, you're missing out!
