Jan 28, 2018

The eighth annual Buffalo Soup-Fest is Sunday. Thirty restaurants will offer 70 different soups from 11am to 6pm at the Buffalo Niagara Convention Center.

The October issue of Buffalo Spree features a series of conversations on a variety of important local topics. One of them is whether Buffalo has too many restaurants. Another is the proposed expansion of the Albright-Knox Art Gallery. There are some concerns about how the gallery expansion would eliminate part of the 1962 wing designed by Gordon Bunshaft. In this week's Press Pass with WBFO's Mark Scott, Spree editor Elizabeth Licata said there's little dispute the Albright-Knox needs more exhibit space.
