Sometimes your brain is just DONE come Friday at 5:01pm. You want to relax and have fun, but sometimes you just can’t think of what to do. We often find ourselves with this dilemma, especially after a long week, and make sure to touch base with our favorite resources online to figure out a date night. We compiled our top ones for you to check out and save on your bookmarks via computer or smartphone:
We love this crew! If you want numerous ideas on things to do in and around the city, this is a great site to scroll through. Everything from food & drink, music, the arts, a city guide…there is bound to be several events and places in here that any couple would LOVE to venture out to. The site is extremely user-friendly and perfect for a last minute decision.
Set this as your homepage so you always know what is happening around here. From new construction to local events, music to art, politics to cleanups- Newell’s site is what keeps you up-to-date with the area. You can also navigate the tabs for city, food, lifestyle, and more to make sure you know all about the latest restaurant opening or underground event to attend.
It’s been fun to see sites, like Step Out Buffalo, really beef up their websites the past couple of years since our city resurgence has taken flight. (we will get there, one day!) Another kick-butt site is Visit Buffalo Niagara. The ultimate go-to site (and visitor center- located across the street from the Hotel Lafayette) for the entire region of Western New York. It breaks down everything from history to Niagara Falls, neighborhoods to itineraries, food and drink, and where to stay in the area. Excellent for out-of-towners and locals alike. I mean, just look at the website. We are obsessed.
Wuts Up Buffalo was started by ‘a group of distinguished gentlemen’ over ‘many cases of beer’, ‘breakups’, and something about a zebra in order to bring you a calendar list of events happening in Buffalo. Literally our favorite part on this site is the calendar- you can view by month or day and each event listing links to everything you need to know. We often peruse this on those Saturday evenings where we go, ‘ehhh, what do ya wanna do?’ WutsUpBuffalo has never failed us.
Now you have no excuses that there is ‘nothing to do’ or you ‘can’t find anything’ out there! These are four of our favorite resources to use and there are a great many more out there to discover! Happy dating 🙂 Where will you go this weekend?
