This Week’s Things To Do – Feb. 3

From our friends at Step Out Buffalo, here are the Best Things to do in Buffalo! For more go to: 


Aerial Flying Class? Say what?!

This class is said to increase your kinesthetic awareness for better agility, build core strength, elongate your muscles and get a low-impact cardiovascular workout while suspended. During Aerial Fly you’ll “decompress” which includes zero-compression inversions, aka going upside down. Don’t worry, you invert only if you are comfortable doing so. As much fun as this sounds, it’s actually not as easy as it looks! Take our word for it and try it out for yourself at 904 Elmwood Ave at Bikeror Bar! If you simply can’t get enough of this awesome class, well you’re in luck! This class runs Monday-Friday 6am-8:30pm and Saturday-Sunday 8am-1:30pm. Tickets can be purchased through the website and are $8 for first class and $13 for a single class after that.

Winter Brew Fest, Cheers!

Of course winter seems like it goes on forever in Western New York. The cold and snow we experience here is like no other place on earth. So come and warm up with us at this year’s Winter Brewfest at the historic Tonawanda Castle on Friday February 3rd. Enjoy great local live music while sampling great local and up and coming craft beers from all over the country. This year’s event will run from 6pm-10pm.

Things to do in WNY This Week

From our friends at Step Out Buffalo, here are the Best Things to do in Buffalo! For more go to: 


Satisfy Your Sweet Tooth: At just 19 years old, the Orchard Park Native already owns her own bakery after her homemade sweets essentially went viral! She started with making cookies at home, experimenting with different recipes, making incremental tweaks and trying to craft something unique. While going to school as well as working at Delta Sonic and bringing her cookies in regularly, they eventually made themselves to Delta Sonic’s director of food service. After trying Kaylena’s cookies, company executives made the decision to have her, then a 17 year old, supply cookies to all their locations. Kaylena’s second break came when Russ Salvatore tried her cannolis. She ended up supplying him with cannoli mix and cheesecakes until Salvatore’s hired a new pastry chef. Other wholesale accounts followed and that run of success led to the opening of Kaylena’s Bakery. Give your tastebuds a treat they will never forget and try them for yourself at Kaylena Marie’s Bakery, located in Orchard Park at 4236 N Buffalo Street.

Sundays are for Brunch: Not a morning person? Don’t worry, we got you covered. These restaurants offer the perfect blend of breakfast and lunch favorites all wrapped up into one. Toss in some Mimosas or Bloody Mary’s (or both) and you’ve got yourself a helluva start to your Saturday or Sunday. Check out our list of 13 local places you can still get your buzz on after 10:00am.

The weather is iffy at best and the Buffalo Museum of Science is currently star studded with the addition of a new exhibit called GUITAR: The Instrument That Rocked The World. This exhibit features 60 guitars on display and dozens of inter actives, but hurry it’s only in town January 21st to May 7th. Experience diverse genres of music? Check! Discover the science of pitch and tone? Check! Learn how the selection of materials and strings fused with electromagnetism and amplification to create an elaborate device that has revolutionized music? Check!
