27 Favorite WNY Bars

27 Favorite WNY Bars
OCTOBER COVERTavern, gin mill, nightclub, honky tonk, pub, saloon, café, bar. Whatever the nomenclature, a place to meet for a drink has been part of human culture for centuries.
From crowded college pubs with nickel drafts to places that serve good wine in a real glass, a dimly-lit bar can offer one of the most comforting welcomes you'll ever find.
Western New York's every nook and cranny is studded with interesting taverns-some of them have been around for over 150 years, while others opened last month. This month, we take you on a tour of some of our favorites!

Girls are not Chicks Coloring Book

Girls are not Chicks Coloring Book.

DING DING DING! Are you kidding?
27 pages of feminist, educational fun! A subversive and playful for for children, and adults, to examine how pervasive gender stereotypes are in every aspect of life. This book helps to deconstruct the homogeneity of gender expression in children's media by showing diverse pictures that reinforce positive gender roles for girls. Girls ate not chicks. Girls are thinkers, creators, fighters, healers and superheroes.
27 pages. Another awesome person in the know.
And I guess this one is sort of *feminist* cute.

Handicapped space 27/Dining 27

Novac writes:

This sign appeared outside my apartment building this week. These signs go up whenever we have someone move in who needs it, but they are never numbered. It's a mystery why this one was numbered, but no surprise that it had this particular number on it.


When on an anniversary trip last year, we dined at a popular chain restaurant. Since there was a long wait, they gave us this to inform us when our turn was up.
