Around town: Buffalonian food favorites

Buffalo is known around the world for beef on weck and wings, but Buffalonians have so much more to say about local cuisine.  Where do Buffalonians like to eat? Not Anchor Bar. Buffalo is forever tied to the resturaunt for those spicy hot wings, but Buffalo offers more than the sauce. The Spectrum compiled five Queen City staples Buffalonians love.

Retiring in college: saving ahead after 20 hard years

I know that I haven’t technically entered the workforce yet, but I can’t wait to retire.  I can already see myself on a senior booze cruise to the Caribbean. Laying on the balcony lawn chairs, with all the other geriatrics and their orthopedic shoes. Some people say that college is the best four years of your life.

UB faculty remembers Gerald O'Grady

Gerald O’Grady was a man married to his work, and his work was revolutionary.  The founder and former chair of the Media Study department passed away on Tuesday. O’Grady came to UB during one of the most important historical periods for the university, and he leaves behind a legacy of profound impact in the Buffalo art world and beyond. The Oxford-educated scholar started several media organizations in Buffalo and his emphasis on experimentalism in media arts and film still influences how students are taught in the department today.

Co-existing in small numbers

The Nickel City Housing Cooperative holds its potluck dinner on Monday or Wednesday nights, where a mix of people sit around a large dinner table eating a vegetarian meal, almost like a family.

Help wanted: a sign for the times

If you’re looking for a job, you’re in luck because help-wanted signs seem to be strewn everywhere these days. I waited in line for 20 minutes at Tim Hortons drive-thru just the other day for an egg and cheese croissant.  When I pulled up to the window, a sweaty teenage boy handed it to me in a huff and said, “Sorry, we’re super low on people lately.”
