Finally some native Williamsburg residents have taken to themselves to curb the BK hipster epidemic. Tired of wealthy out-of-towners moving into their neighborhood claiming to be NY locals causing rampant gentrification of their friends & family having to leave town; the remaining kids have banded together armed with machetes targeting "white boys on bikes".
Officers from the South Williamsburg Precinct have confirmed a substantial increase in crime and gang warfare with the current high rate of employment & diving economy.
So to all those trust fund babies whose parents are throwing away thousands of dollars away for their kid to go to Pratt who although even after withdrawing party money for the night their account balance still won't dip past 10k but still try to maintain an "I'm poor" identity by dressing from thrift stores and living in low rent housing, you best protect ya neck and more importantly go fuck yourselves for the 100th time.

Another great stop while I was back in Buffalo was a good walk around the top of my former local ski area, Kissing Bridge. This exact spot was about 10 minutes from my house and was pretty much my second home for well over 10 years. So awesome in the summertime. Look at those clouds. You don't get that type of thing everywhere.
A few things:
-There is no better lunch than La Nova Pizza and BBQ wings on a nice summer day in Buffalo.
-This place is all sorts of mobbed up.
-There was a time in my life where this place was about 10 meals a week in my food rotation.
-You know a place is good when MC Hammer has 30 buckets delivered backstage to his shows. That's just common sense.

"33-year-old Tremayne Durham of New York City, accused of murdering a man in Oregon, was so sick of jail food that he agreed to plead guilty last month in exchange for a fried chicken feast on the court's tab. In accordance with his plea agreement, Durham was given KFC and Popeyes chicken, mashed potatoes, coleslaw, carrot cake, and ice cream—and after receiving his life sentence yesterday, he was also granted calzones, lasagna, pizza, and more ice cream."

got there right in the middle of their photo shoot for the shop
checkout in the next Snowboard Mag.
They have a great thing going down there in Jamestown. When there isn't a scene, you make one. These guys are doing it all, events, online and a quickly growing store in the heart of downtown. Good to see.
After the tour and photo shoot, about 7 of us hit up the local Applebees (hey, the options are limited after 9 in Jamestown) to talk shop and crush some apps and burgers. Lots of great old Holiday Valley stories were told, and we all left psyched for the season to start.
I first met Pete when he was about 14 at Holiday Valley. It's awesome to see him doing what he loves and making not only a good living but a good scene out of it for the local skate and snow communities. Job well done.
