ahhh ... the Broadway Market (where we used to get our Easter Duck - killed after it was picked out)

and the FRESH horseradish burning your eyes ... the best you could get for beef on weck ...

I'm in NC ... and only ONE spot down in Wilmington sells Beef on Weck ... the weck was some how different though ... but STILL real good!

... before the Anchor bar got famous and completely rearranged inside they had an AWESOME rib eye sandwich! Had many of those with a nice ice cold Genny Cream!

anyone remember Uncle Sam's? or the buffet at Cordon Bleu on Transit Road? How about that disco "Club 747" (I wasn't a disco person - just for the record)

Yeah - it burned down. I just street-viewed the corner of Amherst and Main. Wow. It's all suburban-looking now. I remember the Cassidy's building was an old-style tavern type of building on the northwest corner.

I was self transplanted here in 1978 after coming to Buffalo State for Fine Art in 1974. I have found the passion for this place as my own shared with all of you and have taken the last 4 years to begin putting it to art. I have been an artist/designer here for the last 20 + years and now can express that passion with my series called [mod]advertising [/mod]

Glad and proud to be among the citizens of Western NY
