Southgate Plaza Car Show – September 2nd

One of the car shows I love going to is the Southgate Plaza Labor Day Car Show, which gets over 400 cars easily every year, and this year was no exception. Another fun aspect of the Southgate show: Buffalo’s own super-Elvis impersonator, Terry Buchwald (a lot of people come to see him and not the cars!).
It's amazing what you find in the parking lots at some of these shows!

The Botanical Gardens – August 31st

As much of a gardening freak as I am, I haven’t been to the Buffalo and Erie County Botanical Gardens in AGES (read: elementary school!). I picked up a Groupon for a membership earlier this year, intending to get there this summer…well, summer was almost over, and the Groupon expired on September 1st…oops! So I picked up Mom after work Friday (I took half of a vacation day! :) ) and set off for the Gardens.
