If there is something we excel at in Buffalo it's food.  We may not be able to kick Fieldgoals, but when it comes to giving our taste buds a kick, very few cities do it better. The 34th annual Taste of Buffalo took place this past weekend and some delicious awards were given out.


Hopefully you were able to make it out because it was gorgeous this past weekend.  I mean if Buffalo is known for anything else it's beautiful weather!  If you didn't make it down to the event, here is who won (courtesy of WGRZ):
