The former Chugger's is now the Rockin' Buffalo Saloon at 1800 Union Road, West Seneca. Made popular by the guy in charge that has a heart of gold, Mike Shearer, the renovations have opened up the kitchen to a tasty selection of menu items and attractive, affordable specials during sports. The venue is a favorite spot to see live music, with well-chosen rip-it-up bands, paired up with house sound man, the infamous Joe Tall, mixing it loud.
November 9th brings a catwalk to the Rockin' Buffalo Saloon. Well, sort of.
Diamonds in the Ruff Animal Rescue, out of Lockport NY, is in great need of foster and permanent homes for several dozen pets who have been rescued from kill shelters, found, abandoned, neglected and lost. Diamonds President Chris Niziol has a truly amazing team of volunteers providing transportation, temporary housing, and huge out-of-pocket expenses, and really needs our help.
Diamonds will bring several pets who are ready for adoption on Saturday November 9th, from 8-10pm for you to meet. Staff will be available to answer questions.
Gust of Sun Winery and Vineyard produces a wine for Diamonds in the Ruff. This wine will be available for sampling and for sale, along with some other local wines for tasting, and cheese and crackers.
Many bottles of Diamonds and other wines will be raffled off during the event.
The band Kick Pity, a full 6-piece original band will be taking stage at 1030. Here is a band to catch, with flavors of of Pat Travers, James Gang, The Tubes, Uriah Heap, and Ten Years After. The frontwoman, Gaia Miranda, has had the honor of working with Pat Travers. He contributed and played on her album, All In Time. Gaia has been bestowed with Travers' signature Jazzberry Stratocaster, which he signed for her and although a prized possession, she plays it, hard and driven!

Why? I adopted Patrick, who was rescued from a North Carolina kill shelter Labor Day weekend. He was abused and lowered his head when you went to pet him. We brought Patrick, a beautiful brindle Mastiff mix home with us 2 weeks ago. As I type this, he has his head resting on my lap. He has learned to play, run, and frolic. He has toys, bones and a family who wants him and loves him and with my being a field rep, he gets to take lots of trips in the van, which he loves. Thank you Diamonds in the Ruff. Please save a pet and adopt.
And if you're in the Western New York area, please come to this event for some great music, a terrific atmosphere, tasty wine and to meet some pets who would love to spend Thanksgiving in a nice warm home with loving people.
