It’s that time of year! The annual Polar Bites event, that benefits the Buffalo Zoo, will be taking place on Thursday February 21st at the Convention Center and this year they have a pretty killer line up of vendors. You’ll find some of our favorite restaurants like Lagerhaus 95, Roaming Buffalo, Pizza Plant serving up some of their classic dishes and over a dozen great regional and national breweries/wineries. We’ll be attending the event this year as celebrity judges (it’s a hard life being a food blogger) and we hope to see you there as well! Tickets are just $35 for pre-sale (note: you must be 21 and over) and can be purchased on their website here, otherwise you can buy them the day of the event at the door for $45. The event takes place from 6pm to 9pm and the event has been very popular in the past, so make sure you get there early to try all of your favorites.
