That announcement only happened this week because of the weather not cooperating. The original plans prior to setting up these portable ice rinks was to do street hockey again like last
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.
