    Fondest memory: My grandmother's house. Every Christmas I still come here for the traditional Polish celebration of Wigilia- Christmas Eve. We eat a dinner of Pierogie, Mushroom Soup and Fried Fish and then open presents under the massive tree- always a real tree chopped down in the pine forests of Western New York. The whole place just gives off a warm, family atmosphere that could not be duplicated anywhere else. Throw in the wafting smell of baked goods and Polish food, and this is one nice place to hole in for a week in December.

    Favorite thing: Take an architectural walking tour of downtown. Buffalo, like Chicago, is a city rich in pioneering forms or architecture. See the art deco masterpiece of City Hall, the Victorian mass of the Ellicott Square Building, the soaring neogothic St. Paul's Cathedral, and one of the world's first skyscrapers, the Guaranty Building (Sullivan). You usually have to call ahead for a tour, since they're not that frequent (downtown Buffalo is not exactly a tourist paradise). Check local guides and such for more details.

    Favorite thing: Having grown up in Buffalo, I would have to say that no trip to Buffalo is complete without a trip to The Anchor Bar and Grill on Main Street. The Anchor Bar invented the 'Buffalo' wing, that spicy delectable treat that goes so well with ranch or bleu cheese dressing. In addition, the city is actually quite beautiful with Niagara Falls situated just 20 minutes outside of downtown.

    Fondest memory: The food and the people. Buffalo clearly has some of the best food on the great lakes or in upstate NY. From Beef on Weck to chicken wings to chicken finger subs, the thought of going home just makes my mouth water. Also, the people are among the friendliest around. Buffalo is a place where people still get to know their neighbors. In fact, Buffalo has been called the 'City of Good Neighbors'.
