I believe that has not been finalized yet.

Not a Roadfood Insider so just hoping that there are still spots available Thursday at noon. We are really keen to attend our first Roadfood event.

I wish I could offer up "Chez Buffalo Tarheel" as an option but don't think we'd have enough room - I still have some Foxon Park beverages in storage from my last trip where I bought them in New East Haven, CT.  I am sure that the RF Team will find a good hotel, and I am looking forward to seeing you all here.

Mr Chips,

Your (good) reputation proceeds you, but I am glad that you won't be far behind it on the trip.  Looking forward to meeting you and all who come to Buffalo in a few months.

I am flying in to Buffalo on September 16. Planning to visit presidential sites in the Buffalo area(Millard Fillmore's House, statues of Cleveland and Fillmore, site of T.R's inauguration, site of McKinley's assasination and the park on the American side of Niagra. May finally visit the daredevil museum and take the Maid of the Mist Voyage on the Canadian side(yes I have my passport). Looking forward to a lot of good roadfood.

See you in Buffalo, Mr Chips,
I'll be there too!!

 
I'll be taking the 7 hour drive right after work that friday. Hopefully I'll come in to work early and leave an hour or two early. I'll take Monday off for the ride home.

Re:Roadfood.com Buffalo and Rochester Eating Tour 2009/06/23 20:26:25 (permalink)
I have a couple of questions that came to mind as I look ahead to the upcoming tour here in Buffalo.  I have never been on an official tour before and so don't know the territory, to quote from "The Music Man."  Please remember that there are no dumb questions, just misguided questioners (unless I am the one to prove that statement wrong).  Anyway, this is what I was wondering:

  1. Do you all ever have any get-togethers on the night before the tour?  I don't mean to hijack the official tour but would be glad to see anyone who arrives early enough on Friday to try some other place to eat.  The options are endless: Pizza Hut, Papa John's, ...  sorry, I must have them on the brain from some shilling messages over on the Pizza area.  Seriously, if anyone has any interest in doing something Friday, I'd be glad to find someplace memorable.  It might take some thinking because the tour has all the basic food groups covered, but there are places to eat at.  If the RF team has plans for Friday and is looking for people, I would be glad to be in.
  2. Does the RF team let local TV stations and newspapers know about the tour?  Buffalo is at heart a small town, and I imagine the news would want to cover an event where people want to come here for something unique (as opposed to all the dissing about snow and bad weather, as if the rest of the country never had weather issues).  The coverage won't be the same as the NY Times but would show an interest, I imagine.
Thanks, and hoping that the tour sells out.

Afraid not, LawnGylander. If I remember correctly, the ticket includes the round trip bus ride to Rochester, three of the meals, and a Roadfood.com polo shirt. BTW, welcome to Roadfood.

Sounds like a fun time. Though I go to Buffalo often, and still haven't exhausted the culinary treasures there, I can't swing these dates. I've only been to Rochester twice, and would love to try Dinosaur.

Did you decide on your ice cream/candy stop? Maybe Parkside on Main St.?
 
Oh yeah, if you all get together on the Friday before the tour, consider one of those delectable Buffalo fish fries!

May I suggest that you stay at one of the motels at exit 49 of the thruway. Conveniant to the airport, Buffalo, the Falls and Rochester.  Motels flank both sides of the exit on Rt 78 (Transit Rd), very clean and reasonable. There's even a Ted's a couple blocks north on Transit Rd.

We are in the process of negotiating a good rate with a local hotel that can provide free pickup service at the airport.  An announcement will be made in our newsletter once it is selected.  Whichever hotel we finally select will be the starting/stopping point of the eating tour.

I live in Toronto, about a 90-minutes drive down to Buffalo; hubby and I go there frequently. With regards to visiting a candy store etc, I just wanted to make a comment: we have found in Buffalo on Sundays that many places are closed. Just an FYI -- I'd hate for everyone to be disappointed!

 Well you guys are gonna have to behave yourselfs on this trip. I'm coming along and will be bringing my Ban book along for the ride
 
Seriously I'm along for the fun. Right now the plan is that PP will be along too. Although her health makes that subject to change. As of right now I plan on driving up Friday morning. We should have about a 6 hour drive. We'll drive home Sunday night.
 
This will be my first official RF tour. Although we have done a couple mini-meets in the past. I've also met up with some board members on my trips to Memphis and back.
 
I hope we can put together an unofficial meet for Friday night. A fish fry sounds great.

Mike S. --  I highly recommend the Friday fish dinners (beer-battered, breaded or broiled) at Wiechec's Lounge in South Buffalo

Newbie here...been lurking the site, but not the forums...
a visit to the Dinosaur is worth the trip alone....
I hope they include chicken wings..I sometimes get them for a meal when I go

How much food do you get at each location...

tglouie, I'll have to pass on this trip.  Too many other trips/events planned and just can't swing it this time around.  Have a great time!

CTD & BB, I know we'll eventually meet up around the bend for some great eats!

I just got done confirming all the odds-and-ends for the trip.  Let me go on record by saying this will be the best eating tour ever.  Seriously, you guys will be talking about this one for a while.  That is all I will say until the event unfolds.
