I sincerely hope everybody is enjoying their spring! It’s been a very busy off-season for your NYCBBB staff as they deal with new jobs, new places to live, and my upcoming wedding thrown in there for good measure. I’d especially like to congratulate our columnist, Michelle Girardi, who yesterday accepted a job writing for NFL Films! Looks like that experience writing about us NYCBBB drunks and fanatics at McFadden’s came in handy!
2nd Annual trip to Ralph Wilson Stadium
This year, NYCBBB will be making its second trip up to Orchard Park for the Bills/Jets game on October 16th at 4:15pm. We hope to build on last year’s successful journey which included a tour of Ralph Wilson Stadium, a Happy Hour Meet and Greet with former Bills players, and a butt kicking of the Jets! We’ve put a bunch of tickets on hold and you can start ordering them THIS Saturday. Please email Chris Costanzo at the Bills for details and to purchase seats, and be sure to tell him you are part of Matt Kabel’s NYCBBB group package.

Bills vs. Jets in NYC, New Year’s Weekend!
Plans are well underway for New Year’s weekend, when the Bills take on the Jets at the Meadowlands. NYCBBB will be throwing a New Year’s Eve party at Tracks Bar and Grill located in Penn Station (great commute for you NJ/Long Islanders!) which is owned by Bruce Caufield, one of our original NYCBBB members. With Kevin Smith leading the charge, we’ll also be throwing our legendary NYCBBB tailgate the next morning in Lot 16C before the game. I recommend booking hotel rooms ASAP if you need them, as we all know its New York City’s busiest night! If you have any suggestions for the party/tailgate, please let us know! It’s going to be a tough weekend on the liver!
Pedaling History Museum
While in Orchard Park a few weeks ago, I visited the Pedaling History Museum, which boasts the largest collection of historic bicycles in the entire world! Next time you’re in OP for a game, I recommend going and checking it out since it’s a great exhibit and only minutes from Ralph Wilson Stadium!
Stay tuned, Kevin Smith will be sending an email next week with details about all the various Bills tailgates and trips occurring around the country next season! If you’re heading to any away games, we’ll help you find fellow Bills fans to party with!
