Sample the City-Walking Tour and Tasting Party-May 17th

CARES is so excited to offer a great event to ESC-NFC Students! Saturday, May 17th. Tour begins at 1:30PM. 


Commercial Slip Bridge at Canalside, Buffalo, NY

Celebrate all of your hard work this past year by joining your fellow students as we “Sample the City” with a guided walking tour of Canalside and the Cobblestone District. This 1-1/2 hour tour, hosted by Explore Buffalo, will tell us more about Buffalo’s history and the future of these up-and-coming Buffalo treasures.   After the tour the group will gather at Gene McCarthy’s in the city’s historic first ward for an informal Tasting Party.

Tickets are $10 per person, limit of 2.  PURCHASE TICKETS ONLINE HERE
Limited tickets, first come first served

Keeping with the “sampling spirit,” guests will enjoy six varieties of wings, from traditional Buffalo favorites to a few with a gourmet twist. Snacks, soft drinks, and desserts will also be provided. Each guest (21+) will receive a drink ticket for your choice of a sample flight (3 – 2oz tastings) from the micro-brews on tap, or to enjoy a beer, glass of house wine or well-drink, if you prefer. A tour of the brand new brewery set to open at Gene McCarthy’s may also be “on tap.”

We will even throw in some swag for each guest and a chance to win door prizes!

Tickets are limited. Students and alumni are invited to bring one guest. Please provide an email or contact number so that we can send you confirmation about where the group will be meeting to start the tour and for parking information. As of now we plan to meet at the Commercial Slip Bridge, near the Liberty Hound Restaurant at the end of the Naval Park to start the tour. (Pictured above) This is a rain or shine event.

This event is sponsored by the Niagara Frontier Center CARES Club. CARES stands for College Achievement Requires Engaged Students. This is a newly formed student club. We hope you will join us to meet the members of our club and learn more about our mission.
