8 of us will be making the trip up as well

 

Any suggestions on good places to watch Bama/A&M that Saturday or things to do while we are there?

 

They have the original Anchor bar in Buffalo, it's worth it for the experience. Duffs may be the best place with good wings.

 

Niagara Falls is just a drive away if you are staying in Buffalo and not Orchard Park area.

Was about to ask what the best place for wings is. I'm tempted to stay around Niagara Falls to take it in before going to the game

I've just read that the Anchor Bar is where the chicken wing originated, and I'm partial to a wing so this will definitely be on my list. Is it a good TV setup for game watching as well?

 

Niagara Falls is also intriguing. Depending on how drunk we get Friday night, a trip there Saturday morning could be in the works.

 

Thanks for the help!

Buffalo is a dump. Passionate fans though. We play them at the right time so the weather is bearable.

TV set up is good if your the actual bar. They don't have them set up through the restaurant seating. Again, its a good experience going there since its where the wing originated, but I actually prefer Duffs for wings. They have several locations in Buffalo.

I don't recommend staying in Niagara Falls unless you are on the Canada side. The US side isn't as developed or as nice as the Canadian side. They do have a casino though.

 

Plus, the stadium is actually south of Buffalo, so its a bit of a drive from Niagara Falls. Probably 45 minutes or so.

They have some good tailgating up there. I even remember seeing an NFL Films thing about this legendary Bills fan that drives an old Pinto to the games. He cooks food on his engine block as he drives to the stadium. Real nerdy looking guy but is this tailgate god or something. He's probably dead now.

Was thinking of staying on the Canadian side since I've heard it's better there. Not crazy about a 45 min drive Sunday morning though. Thanks for the heads up

Ken Johnson is his name.. not sure if hes dead or not. But it was his 1980 pinto.

 

I know a few people that go up and have a great tailgating spread. They were on that show Tailgate Warriors.
