Come see Literary Locations, a new way of letting you celebrate and spread the word about writers you're passionate about. Isabella Bannerman illustrates the stickers, which are designed by Kanad Banerjee. Here's one of John Keats that's on my friend Ann's car in Georgia. One the left side, Ann has a Jane Austen sticker to balance things out. We've also had orders from Texas, Colorado and New York. And there's a Facebook page (Literary Locations) where you can tell us which writers you'd like us to add to our list of literary genuises. Continue reading

The Broil-Air wasn't the only charcoal grill to come out of Buffalo. Here's the Fold Away Grill, found by Howie and Adam online. Adam bought it, and is going to restore it. The Broil-Air is also designed to be "knock down," but this one truly lies flat. Love the box! Adam, keep us posted and let us know how it grills! And if anyone knows about the history of Holland Industries, please drop me a line. Continue reading

Howie uses a chimney to stoke the coals, which will be ready in no time. Look at how cherry red the metal sides of the chimney gets. It's a "mini-blast furnace," as my friend Matt Georger describes it. Thanks for the shots, Howie! Continue reading

Photo: Jim Nolan An architect. Eero Saarinen was responsible for both the CBS Building (1965) and Kleinhans (1940), the latter with his son, Eliel. Kleinhans men's clothing store was once the largest in the U.S. and one of the first stores in the country to have electric lights. Edward Kleinhan, who with his wife Mary gave a million bucks to build the Hall, said, "I made my money in Buffalo and I want to leave it to Buffalo." Kleinhans is a National Historic Landmark, home to the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra, and has exceptionally fine acoustics. Edward and Mary are buried... Continue reading

I've always liked the description my friend Matt Georger gives of the BFG color: "sort of a lime or olive green, kinda matches your lawn on a sunny day."

Well, the handle on my grill still had the original color on it from the 50s and I was able to have Sherwin Williams match the color exactly. I wanted to use them because they had an industrial metal paint and were able... Continue reading
