Buffalo enjoys a strong Irish tradition, and this month, everyone is wearing their Irish hearts on their sleeves. Buffalo’s been named one of the Top 10 best cities in the country to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. That’s not surprising, since Buffalo is full of Irish restaurants, bars, entertainers, musicians, dancers, festivals, clubs and businesses. The United Irish American Association puts on an amazing St. Pat’s Day parade that proceeds along Delaware Avenue; this year it’s on March 20th, and tens of thousands of spectators are expected. The Buffalo Irish Center, which promotes Irish culture, is a focal point for St. Patrick’s Day celebrations, including a traditional Irish breakfast March 17 and civic luncheon March 18.

Whether you delay retirement or not is an entirely personal preference, but if you’re chomping at the bit to retire soon, there are plenty of reasons to do so this year.

Some hold on to the stereotypes formed years ago about institutional nursing homes, while others just haven’t yet explored today’s options for abundant senior life.
There’s a reason why many of today’s retirees are choosing urban locales. Actually, there are lots of reasons! From the opportunities for entertainment and engagement to proximity to resources most sought after during the retirement years, urban cities have much to offer an aging population.
Buffalo’s Dyngus Day celebrates spring and Polish heritage
April 19, 2018
On the Monday after Easter, we are finally free from the constraints of Lent, so why not have a party? The folks in Poland thought that was a good idea, and for centuries, they’ve celebrated on Easter Monday. Polish communities in America have continued the tradition. In places like Chicago, Cleveland and Pittsburgh with large Polish-American population, people mark the end of Lent and the arrival of spring on Dyngus Day with feasting, flirtation and festivities. But when it comes to Dyngus Day festivals, Buffalo is the unofficial Dyngus Day capital of America! This year, Dyngus Day is April 17th.
