If there’s one thing we can all agree on, it’s pizza. It can do no wrong. We’re helping you get your pizza fix with La Tavola Trattoria for the next two weeks – Say hello to your new Feature Friday sponsor! La Tavola has the pizza and the views – literally, you can watch your beautiful masterpiece of a pie be made from scratch. The fresh dough, roaring wood-fire oven, the best toppings – Heaven.


It doesn’t stop there, La Tavola offers awesome craft cocktails, entrees, and a solid patio on the hottest block of Hertel. If you haven’t checked out this modern Italian gem of a restaurant we highly suggest it – affordable, cool vibe, good food, great people! Keep tagging those grams with #RiseBFLO for a chance to win some dough to La Tavola (see what we did there?).
So… who’s that lucky FF winner?




NICE. The minimalist vibe and contrast of black and white are on point. If you don’t follow Michael (aka @stustustudio) check out his feed. He’s capturing some of the best stuff in Lewiston and beyond. Mike, get out of the falls for a night and come hang on Hertel Ave! Email us at and see how to claim your $25 gift card to La Tavola.

36 Days and Counting

Halloween is closer than you think, so dig up that 90’s gear! October 29th’s two-floor party is $45 for four hours of open bar, a buffet, a rock show downstairs and a dance party upstairs. Get your tickets now online or stop at Record Theatre near Canisius College, Record Theatre near UB South or After Dark Entertainment on Elmwood for tickets with a lower fee than online. How about THAT! Support so many local businesses, bands, and DJ’s at once.


Speaking of Halloween…

Apparel is back for presale orders just in time for Halloween. The Skyline Skull is looking better than ever on American Apparel. Check out product descriptions for materials and sizing. These shirts are available presale only which means you’ve got until September 30 to order, then we put in our order to print and get them out to you in time for Halloween! 



Resurgence for Everyone

Sure, Buffalo is in the midst of a resurgence – but not everyone is experiencing it. Our upcoming newspaper, No Boundaries is exploring that and more. We’ll be covering the underreported areas of the city, highlighting positive changes and ideas. We’ve received many sponsor dollars from local small businesses who want to get on board, and we’re oh so close to our fundraising goal. For $25, you can see your name in the masthead. Contact us for more information:
