Public service announcement:
OUTDOOR BEER AVAILABLE IN DOWNTOWN BUFFALO THIS WEEKEND
In February 2008, I took a trip to the marina to see what the first Labatt Blue Pond Hockey Tournament was all about.
I didn’t play. I just wanted to scope out the scene and snap a few pictures.
It was one of those “hey, this Buffalo place is A-OK” days– like a tailgate party in OP or the St. Patty’s Day Parade.
Over the past 5 years, the tourney has grown in size and the scene this weekend should be something to behold.
Whether you’re playing or not, it’s worth a trip downtown just to see Buffalo using winter weather to its advantage.
Hockey? Cold beer? Downtown Buffalo? I’m in.
(Look at those tiny nets. They’re the best.)
