I've always been "Halloween challenged." I'm not super creative with costumes and parties, never enjoyed dressing up as a kid (yes I know, it sounds like I had a strange childhood...you're right!), but I love scary movies! Buzzfeed.com has put together30+ Facts About Halloween Movies That Will Blow Your Mind! For example, could you imagine Tom Cruise as Edward Scissorhands?
Emily Urbik, wife of Bills' Lineman Kraig, takes us to a Bills Halloween party! She dishes on which players had great costumes and which - including her husband - faked it. She also shows what it's like to be sitting in the stands when your husband gets hurt, and how in a very short time she absolutely loves living in Buffalo.
Taylor Swift's 2013 RED TOUR will hit 45 cities with both arena and stadium shows. But Buffalo isn't one of them...Click here for tour dates.Rob Lucas says...don't give up hope on a Buffalo show! There's a lot of open space on this schedule. Taylor is in Toronto June 15th, but has two weeks off before that, and a full week free afterward. It's very possible she could add a Buffalo date in that empty time. Keep your fingers crossed...stranger things have happened!
Hot off his SNL appearance, Bruno Mars checks into Star 102.5 with happening stories about the recording of "Unorthodox Jukebox," the brotherhood of his band (did you know his drummer is his brother?) and his ultra-cool selection of hats.
If you love dogs, you MUST get yourself a copy of the In The Company Of Dogs holiday catalog. Yes, we've just given you the online link, but this is one of those catalogs that is better to have in your hand. Kind of like a SkyMall catalog, but 100% dedicated to dogs and their owners. Tons of things inside that I truly haven't seen anywhere else. I'm giving In The Company Of Dogs the Rob Lucas Seal Of Approval!
Amanda Barnett, wife of Bills LB Nick Barnett joined us this morning and told us what it's been like to live in two of the most rabid NFL cities, Green Bay and Buffalo. Buffalo fans, you'll love what she has to say about our city! We also hit on the problems the defense is facing, Nick's never ending tweeting and game study, and balancing an NFL life with 3 kids, and 3 dogs. She is also chairperson of Slowfoodbuffaloniagara.org, which is helping establish school gardens in the area. A very cool endeavor!
The Buffalo Common Council will hear a proposal today on a new retractable roof stadium. Pretty exciting. Check outThe Buffalo News article. You would think sports fan and harbor development fan Rob Lucas would be totally in favor of this. But not so fast! Listen...
Does everyone in the Longboat-Lido-Siesta Key area have a Buffalo connection? On our first full of vacation, we met a couple who says "Our niece just married a guy from Buffalo...a goofy name like Tonawanda?" (and they pronounced it correctly). "That's where we're from!," we said, and they replied with a look like "there really is a place like that?!"
A few hours later, while shopping in a major touristy area, a mature woman waiting on us says "Buffalo? My parents are from there, but they moved when they had me, but Buffalo is all I heard about growing up. My dad would yell about Jim Kelly all the time, and he loved Fred Smerlas!" And she continued to tell stories her dad would talk about, etc.
And a half hour and 2 stores later, I'm looking at getting a pair of sneakers, and the woman in her mid 20's asks if I will wear them year round. I say No, probably not much over the WInter as we live in Buffalo, and she comes back with "I'm from the West Side! Greenwood Place (near W. Delevan and Grant). The Lebanese section. My boyfriend and I moved down here for college and cheaper rent...and now we are married and staying here. Is Romanello's still there?"
And this was only day 1! If you have any cool Buffalo vacation stories like this, leave them in the comments section below!
