Easter in Buffalo

We used our three-day weekend to meet up with Ron, Mom, and Nate in Buffalo. Other than seeing Niagara Falls, we knew it would be a great opportunity to explore our new home state. It was a great weekend for hiking and eating!

On Friday night we ate at Anchor Bar - the Home of the Original Buffalo Chicken Wings. They were DELICIOUS! I didn't take any other pictures of food... We were a little too busy eating and drinking. Buffalo Brew Pub had great food, as well. 

You can tell we were more interested in eating, than picture-taking.
That would be Amit with a half-eaten tray of 50 wings.

After hiking on Saturday, we stopped for lunch in a small town near Letchworth State Park. After our delicious lunch, we stopped to do some antiquing. I hit the JACKPOT!!! I've always wanted a vintage school desk, like Mom's, but haven't found one that I liked or that was affordable enough for us. At the first shop we stopped at, we found this cute little Sears & Roebuck desk for $27. After debating whether or not to get it, Amit went up to the owner and said we wanted it. (Isn't he the best???) It turns out, the owner's father had gone to the Catholic school in town and they had found 30 of these desks in the basement. This was the last one!

Safe and sound in the van!

Isn't it beautiful?

Today was actually National Cherish an Antique Day. I definitely will cherish mine... I'm thinking of repainting the legs and possibly restaining the wood, but I'm not quite sure. All I know is that it's awesome! We had a great time in Buffalo. More pictures to come, so stay tuned!
