Come to Buffalo! (and maybe meet Cordelia’s Mom)

Teddy Rosalie needs to grow a little taller to be a proper photography model.

Here’s your chance of a lifetime!  Oxford Pennant in Buffalo, NY is running the Warmest Cold City Contest, in which you can win an all-expense-paid trip to my hometown.

I saw this contest on Facebook and then checked out the Oxford Pennant’s website.  It is a legitimate company and a legitimate contest.  Check it out (it takes a few seconds for the video to load, at least on my computer, just so you know).

So jump on in and enter!  If you win, Teddy Rosalie and I will make arrangements to meet with you during your stay.  That’s not noted in the contest information because apparently not everyone in the world (nor even everyone in Buffalo, darn it) has heard of Cordelia’s Mom.  Just consider it an extra perk if you win.

The Corridor at the Hotel Henry, Buffalo, NY

I can vouch for the Hotel Henry and its 100 Acres Restaurant, having dined there recently.  While I can’t attest to the quality of the guest rooms, I can state that the food in the restaurant was awesome and that the building’s architecture alone is worth a tour.  Heck, I may enter the contest just so I can go back for a nice staycation.

The Buffalo Zoo has bison!

There are so many places to see and things to do in Buffalo.  While Teddy Rosalie visited the History Museum and the Buffalo Zoo in summertime, they are open year ’round, and she and I would love to show them to you.

The only drawback to the contest, as I see it, is that the airfare is paid only from a city within the continental United States, which pretty much leaves out my international readers – unless, of course, you’re willing to pay your own way to the States.  I’m worth it, right?

Go for it, people!  When you win, let me know so we can start planning the party.

(Note the entry deadline is February 1, and that the trip must be taken between February 8 and March 10.  You all have a few vacation days available, right?)

I love to hear from my readers. You may comment on this post, comment on my Facebook or Twitter pages, or email me at

    I’ll only go to Buffalo if I can ride a bison. Actually, I wouldn’t mind a free vacation there, but I’m afraid a big blizzard will hit, and we won’t be able to leave.

  2. I have to say, this contest is mighty enticing! All the food sounds great! No current plans to visit Pittsburgh or Buffalo, but I’ll let you know if I do.

    You know I fear the Thruway drive in February and March, CM, no matter how good it’s been so far. Icy today, snow coming Wednesday through Friday, for example …

    • I know, me too. But I’ve since re-read the contest rules, and it turns out only US residents are eligible anyway. Even people who could get to the US easily (like Canadians) are excluded. Guess I’ll have to find some other way to meet my international blogging friends.

  6. I’ve been to Buffalo half a dozen times, from when I was a kid to pretty recently. It’s actually a nice city with terrible weather. It’s really the weather that’s the issue. I entered. I’d go just to meet YOU guys, but if there’s 10 feet of snow on the ground … well … we see.
