Featured Restaurant

Hen House, Buffalo’s pioneering Nashville hot chicken restaurant, spices up the local culinary scene with two vibrant locations—one nestled on Hertel Ave and the other gracing Main Street in Tonawanda.

Renowned for its fiery fried chicken sandwiches and tenders, Hen House brings a taste of Southern heat to the heart of Buffalo, each dish generously doused in their signature spice.

Featured Talent

Chris Piontkowski is a dynamic Buffalo-based artist renowned for his vibrant pop art creations that merge floral motifs with geometric patterns. His works are deeply influenced by street art and the nostalgia of recreating scenes from beloved cartoons and video games of his youth.

Piontkowski’s distinctive murals, which add color and life to Elmwood Avenue, Hertel Alley, Black Rock, and Eggertsville, reflect his commitment to inspiring others through art. Chris continues to push the boundaries of pop art, making him a noteworthy figure in the contemporary art scene.
