I've yet to find excellent wings outside of Western New York. They are a source of great pride here, so most restaurants and bars take the time to do them well.

Buffalo Pros: It's cheap Decent amount of cultural stuff for its size Good sports town Very good blue-collar food like wings and beef People are generally friendly Cons: Snows too much Depressed local economy Pervasive NYC inferiority complex Snows too much
