I'm coming to your great town in November for the Monday Night game. Can you give me some tips, please?
First, I would like to do the Falls and some gambling for a day or two. Are there other casinos besides Seneca? Any suggestions for my time North of Buffalo?
I plan to get into downtown Buffalo on Sunday afternoon, and leave Tuesday morning. (There doesn't appear to be any hotels near the stadium). Where would you suggest downtown to watch the games on Sunday? Should I brave the drive to Orchard Park for the game, or try to use the public transportation? I looked at the metro schedule and am very confused as to where I can pick it up and where it drops me off near the stadium. Any tips? Which hotels are right on the bus line? I don't know your city, so I prefer not to have to walk very far downtown after midnight.
How mean are you guys?? I want to be in full Browns attire, but don't want to get killed
Any suggestions are appreciated.
I don't live in Buffalo now, but I grew up, and lived about a mile from the stadium as the crow flies.
1) Casino Niagara is very nice. Canadian side of the Falls, so make sure you have your passport!! It's a nice casino. There is a Casino on the American side in Buffalo that is new, but I have not been to it. The
2) The stadium is in the suburbs, so there isn't much in the way of hotels. I know there is a Hampton Inn in West Seneca (one town over from the stadium, where I grew up!). Probably a 10-15 minute drive to the stadium (without gameday traffic). Wherever you stay, drive to he game. I think public transportation is non-existent and/or challenging. There is a TON of parking around the stadium - there is a Community College across the street that opens their lots on top of the regular stadium lots. There is GREAT tailgating in Buffalo, so go early and enjoy!
3) I'm not really familiar with the Buffalo bar scene anymore, but check out the Chippewa area. Chippewa is a street, and a section is lined with bars/clubs/restaurants.
4) As for how mean the fans are. For the most part, you'll get some good natured jabs thrown your way, and if you take it in stride, laugh it off, you'll have no problems. But like everyone has said - there's a jerk in every crowd. I think you should be ok, as long as you don't walk to your seat screaming "Bills suck!" or anything like that.
Have fun! Let me know if you have any more questions!
