Resolve to try 7 Sizzling Events to Start 2024 Right! (Jan 1-15)

Happy New Year from Buffalo Rising! We hope that the holidays were “merry and bright,” and that you were able to take advantage of so many of the great events that our city has to offer.  

Often, January can be a lull in great events in any city, because many of us are still recuperating from the holidays… But as is often the case, Buffalo is the exception to that rule.  We have put together a list of seven events that can help with your resolutions (Fleet Feet and Crossfit at Shea’s), allow you to try something new (Paella Class, or MUSEjar art classes) or celebrate the king (Elvis’ Birthday Weekend).  Hope this is the start to an amazing 2024!
