Best of Buffalo 2010, Party TONIGHT at Town Ballroom

Note: We will be showing game 6 between the Buffalo Sabres and Boston Bruins tonight on the Town Ballroom’s big projection screens. You don’t have to choose between the party or the game – come on out and enjoy both!

Back again, it’s Artvoice’s annual Best of Buffalo party at the Town Ballrom, held this year on April 26 from 6-9pm. With well over 500 nominees, it’s expected to be well attended. But it isn’t just the honored guests who are invited. The party is free and open to the public, a showcase and celebration of what our readers say are the best things about our city for food, entertainment, people, places, shops, and much more. There’ll be food to sample from as many of the nominated restaurants as we can get to come, and hopefully we’ll be able to spot some local celebrities among the crowd. The last years have seen the Town Ballroom so packed it has been hard to see the entertainment, so this year we’ve pared down a little. There will be DJ sets from Shock & Awe and emcee bits from comedian Kristen Becker (of the Dykes of Hazard). We’ll be announcing the top winners in each category—the number one spot only—throughout the night and handing out plaques to the winners. We’ll print the names of those winners in next week’s issue.

Be sure to look in this week’s issue for the (long) list of nominees. With the extent of the categories this year, you just never know who or what might be in there.

6-9pm. Town Ballroom, 681 Main St. (852-3900 / townballroom.com). Free.

    Buffalo is really turning Hollywood. Let’s all pat each other on the back and hand out awards. Is there an award for “Buffalo’s Best Block Without Windows”? How about “Buffalo’s Best Example of Elmwood Turning Williamsville”? Oh, aaaah, Did you say that there would be free food there? Oh, Yeah, Well, um,you guys are awesome. Is it alright to bring a doggy-bag?? Times have been hard since getting kicked out of Loaves and Fishes, “Buffalo’s Best Soup Kitchen”, for breaking up a fight.

    Thanks to AV for sponsoring an event which celebrates the richness of our city. It’s a most pleasant and refreshing respite to be reminded what great assets we have in our midst.
