2012 Wing Fest day 1

So went yesterday and going back today for the National Buffalo Chicken Wing festival.. I think I'm more there for the events now then the food? Now that being said though.. The wings went Jumbo yeah I guess a little bigger.. It is $1 a wing.. So think the price went up also? But before it was you got 3 wings for however many tickets 2 maybe... But I'm not use to that you buy how ever many wings you want so you could go some place and not have to get 3 so one could get 7 different wings some place or just get one....

So I guess photo wise I'll just try to hit off kinda like a few pictures from like each thing instead of like an album from each thing in different posts?

Yes that was bobbing for wings in Blue Cheese Dressing :) Also I should note that both UV Vodka a sponsor has some tasty drinks and yes they and Sailor Jerry Have free samples along with 2 other places that I shall try to get all four this time today.. It is scary how good the Chocolate Cake drink was it really tasted like Chocolate Cake :) and yes I won a free shirt but it was still tasty :) That being said I paid for the drink upstairs so.. I wonder if once flavor is added to vodka if all the companies are pretty much the same.. I've guessing other then the brand that makes grape and calls it purple then yes :)

I guess I should explain that those I think at least lovely ladies are collecting money for two charities and you are betting on kinda who wins.. Two Bills players are going to a wing eat off.. That isn't weighed it is just whom eat more wings for charity.....

Elmwood Festival of the Arts 2012

So I worked for a few hours on Sat. Then it was off to the festival to look at stuff buy stuff and get some food.. sometimes on Sunday I'll go see all the dance stuff.. But Doubt that today... I don't know with out the skiffles as part of the after party I wasn't feeling it as much plus wanted to watch the Bills I mean Steelers game.. Both teams seem like they could be pretty good.. Steelers no Hines Ward just isn't the same but hey that is football and he was great.....

I admit that I kinda went to see two Artists Drew Morrison and Paul Massaro and bought stuff that is either new or that I don't have..Wish I was in the market for originals but then again I don't have that kind of money or house... Part of me does want to go back for the dancing... There is all kinds of cool art. I love those creatures I'm sure if I wanted to get that tree I could but don't have a good spot for it.... A car on the way home and the art work I got....

Ulrich's .........

So I have never been to Ulrich's Tavern but I guess there are many that have and it is supposed to be pretty good and isn't it one of the places that was on one of those food shows... So some time back in August I read that it was shut down... (e:paul) has a post about it.. So I saw this in Today's Buffalo news and thought I would share.. We shall see.... Oh that reminds me quickly Elmwood Festival of the arts is this weekend hope to go for a bit......



Ulrich’s determined to reopen after seizure
Owner has filed for bankruptcy
By Samantha Maziarz Christmann
NEWS BUSINESS REPORTER

Updated: August 24, 2012, 12:11 PM

After being seized for unpaid taxes three weeks ago, Ulrich’s Tavern has filed for bankruptcy and announced plans to reopen Sept. 4.

Owner James Daley confirmed that the iconic Ellicott Street bar and restaurant will hold a reopening party beginning at 3 p.m. Sept. 4, sponsored by Flying Bison Brewery. Lunches will resume Sept. 5, dinners Sept. 6.

Daley said he has met with several financial and professional advisers to come up with a plan to better handle the business side of the restaurant and has found ways to run a “much financially tighter ship.”

“There was never a lack of effort on anyone’s part, it was more not understanding some financial realities,” Daley said. “We always just thought if we worked harder, we could overcome it.”

Going forward, Ulrich’s will have a smaller menu of core items, will offer fewer specials and cut staff. It will still offer German specialties and popular staples such as beef on weck.

“We’re going to do fewer items and make sure we can do them really well and do them efficiently and cost-effectively,” Daley said. “We had so many items that we had to pay more people to work in the kitchen than there was money coming in.” Daley has vowed to adhere strictly to labor and food cost goals, and to make tough, smart business decisions about what the restaurant can afford. “It sounds so simple, it’s Business 101, but when you’re working 12 hours every day and you’re in the battle, it’s hard to step back and look at it,” Daley said. “Being shut down for three weeks, I’ve been able to look at it and say, ‘How could that have ever worked?’”

Ulrich’s Tavern Inc. filed a Chapter 11 petition Thursday in U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Western District of New York. The filing lists the business’ estimated assets as $50,000 or less and its estimated liabilities from $100,000 to $500,000. Among its list of creditors holding the largest unsecured claims are the state Department of Taxation & Finance at $205,000 and the Internal Revenue Service at $65,000.

The restaurant was shut down Aug. 4 on seven outstanding warrants of unpaid withholding and sales tax.

A 2011 tax return included in the filing showed Ulrich’s operated at a loss of $20,432 for the year. A profit and loss sheet showed the business operating $7,537 in the red for the period ending May 20.

Ulrich’s filed for bankruptcy before in 1994.

That bankruptcy was later discharged in 1998.

Ulrich’s Tavern is considered the oldest continuously running bar in Buffalo, first established in 1868. Daley’s parents ran the business starting in the 1950s, before Daley bought the business and took over in 2000.

Hope it works out for them... Most places that this happens to don't open again..

EDIT: I used the box function using Chrome and no box showed up so I'm changing it to " "

Urban Landscape

So the other day I had my camera with me on the way to work and it was very foggy.. Yes the day I was hoping to eat with the (e:peeps)... Honestly I wanted to but I was feeling pretty gross from work.. Plus the hoodie still had like cat hair on it and gross so...

image
image
image
image
image
image
image
image
image
image

Now near where I work I noticed some art work not sure what it is about..Kinda looks like a mug shot? Then since we are on the topic or urban art. There are tags on the train that I got.. None of them are like the really fancy ones (didn't see them) that some artists do with like a spray can worked in or like where the name is spelled out in bricks or a picture is mixed in .......

The Occupy Movement is still not done? They make a point about locking up the bankers.. They did get bailed out and none of that money they got helps us?

image
image
image

Not sure whom covered this on the net but I guess some of this style of tagging got people in Allentown all upset ...... Here is what I got...

image
image
image
image
image
image
image

I myself am more of a fan of the spray paint art then say like words or like murals... But stuff that is put on purpose or allowed isn't the same as someone hitting a mailbox or gangs putting up names or something.. But maybe that area doesn't want to take the chance.. But yet the one bar when I was a kid people would get thrown out the front window.. Brick Bar you didn't go to unless you where a tough guy?

EDIT: I need to mention that last graphic I couldn't get all of between the fence and the trees.. It might be tough for anyone to... Well unless of course the gate was open... So go buy and take a look......

2012 Erie Country Fair

Now the thing that is great about Fairs I assume the state fair is like this and even fairs that are different is that they have things for all different people.. There is the Fried Food, Games, Rides, shows, shopping (yes all kinds of cool things you can get), The Animals, Animal Events and grand stand events as well.... Um did I mention the food not just the deep fried stuff... Yes trying new stuff can be a bit scary cause it might not all be made the same... But here are a few pix.. Ok more then a few ....

Ok I admit the last two foods are kinda odd... I had to try the Chocolate bacon.. Now it was good but strange it was kinda like a sauce and I like mine cooked more soft but that is just me... The other thing was good and odd and liked the dipping stuff but couldn't tell you the flavor.. Chicken Fried bacon... I wasn't brave enough to try the deep fried butter ... Bet it could have been great.....

Peeking Acrobats 2012

So this weekend was the first weekend of The Erie County fair... It is going to have to be multiple posts... But I figured not just for (e:tinypliny) but for anyone who does yoga these acrobats of course they are women so they do have a bit more flexabilty I could be wrong on that but I thought there was some way the pelvis lines up or something sorry can't remember in any event for now here is their performance.. sorry if the pictures look over exposed a bit...

Aug 2012 Skiffle Happy Hour

So I admit I Haven't been infringing like I should..Part of that is the olympics and Social Media and work and the heat... Now this isn't part of infringement and again sorry for not posting pix up here of that yet... but if you are on facebook you can see them....But last night there where a few things going on wonder if they set the world record for Zombies at the ball park.. The reason I didn't go is that to get made up then go home on a bus.. Doesn't sound like a good idea.... Plus it sounded like they would be through out the ball park and not like in one area so... There was an art thing at 424 and Lloyd's but went with Skiffle....
