This post currently has no comments.

Note: Due to weather, this event has been rescheduled for Monday, December 1st. 

Good Neighbors, yours requests have been answered – we’re bringing back our monthly Friendraiser!

Join us at The Filling Station in Larkin Square, on Monday, December 1st, from 5:30-7pm, for an informal mixer to connect Good Neighbors with common causes – feel free to bring business cards and any promotional material. While everyone will be introduced formally for the sake of networking, we spotlight one specific cause at each Friendraiser, with this month’s focus on the reformed Give for Greatness (G4G) program, now supported by Arts Services Initiative of WNY (ASI). With ASI’s providing of office and administrative support, G4G is again awarding grants to local arts and cultural organizations; we’ll introduce their new director and committee members, who will discuss future event plans, including one in an exciting new location near Larkinville.  Read moreRead more

Announcing: Food Truck Turkey in Larkin Square on Thanksgiving Eve

This post currently has no comments.

As Larkin Square’s Food Truck Tuesday has become one of Buffalo’s biggest dinner parties, the success of the six-month season that ended in October called for an encore – enter Food Truck Turkey, set for the perfect occasion of one of Buffalo’s biggest social nights, Thanksgiving Eve.

While the 30+ food trucks from Buffalo and Rochester will not necessarily be serving Thanksgiving dinner staples, the spirit of the season will be felt in Larkin Square – live music will be provided by Buffalo band Gravy, named after their claim to “cover everything” with a fresh and funky twist, and the Salvation Army will be on site with a goal of “stuffing the truck” with donations of food and winter clothing.

Here at BBBSEC, we work hard day-to-day, but we also like to hang out with our friends, enjoy good food and get to know new people. That’s why we regularly host our “Big Mixer” events.

Coming up on Thursday, November 6th, from 5:30-7:30pm, we’ll be doing just that at Més Que (1420 Hertel Ave, Buffalo), one of our favorite spots! The Big Mixer is an opportunity for community members to network and enjoy free appetizers and drink specials, while learning a little bit more about what BBBSEC does, and get the real scoop from current Bigs about what it’s like to mentor.  Read moreRead more

Starlight Spotlight – “Co-Artifact,” a Profound Pairing of Visual Artists

This post currently has no comments.

By Judy Clonan-Smith, Art Studio Case Coordinator, The Learning Disabilities Association of WNY & Starlight Studio and Art Gallery

Starlight Studio and Art Gallery, a division of LDA of WNY, has begun a new project with local community artists called Co-Artifact. The Buffalo community, especially the community of area artists, has always been very supportive of what we do at Starlight. With this in mind, I happened across an online story of a graphic illustrator, her very young daughter and their collaborations. The wheels started turning.  Read moreRead more

It’s time for that old cliché: when did it become October?! It seems like only yesterday we were gearing up for a long summer. Seeing our Little Brothers and Little Sisters at BBBSEC get settled into their first few weeks of school also makes me feel like my own school days were only yesterday.  Read moreRead more

Note: MiA is seeking more volunteers for the evening shift of 6-10pm – to join, contact volunteer@musicisart.org

By Seamus Gallivan

As an admirer of Music is Art (MiA) and Robby Takac’s tireless commitment to Buffalo through it since covering and volunteering at the inaugural event in 2003, I’m honored to have been asked to curate a stage at the 12th annual festival this Saturday, September 13th, in beautiful Delaware Park. Arguably Buffalo’s greatest one-day cultural expression, MiA is a kaleidoscopic feast for the senses, and teaming with The Park School of Buffalo‘s Untitled Album club, we’re adding to its greatness as a family-friendly event by presenting an evening of young up-and-comers on the Kids Village stage, located near the Rose Garden on the southern end of the grounds. Here’s our lineup: Read moreRead more
