Warm temperatures put Canalside skating on ice


BUFFALO, N.Y.- Downtown Buffalo's newest attraction has been put on ice the last couple of days because of the warm temperatures.

Skating time at The Rink at Canalside was cancelled for both Wednesday and Thursday because the weather was too warm to maintain good ice conditions.

The rink is scheduled to re-open Friday from noon to 10 p.m. An estimated 6,000 people skated on the rink during the opening weekend.


Hofbrauhaus likely coming to Canalside


BUFFALO, N.Y.- German restaurant chain Hofbrauhaus will likely be part of a planned mixed use building that will be built at Canalside.

2 On Your Side has confirmed that the restaurant is scheduled to be one of the main tenants in the building, which will be at the intersection of Washington Street and Scott Street.

Hofbauhaus is a German beer hall chain based out of Munich with several U.S. locations.


CBP Launches Border Wait Time App

CBP Launches Border Wait Time App

 

Last week, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) launched a free Border Wait Time app that makes it easier for travelers to plan their trip across the border. Among its features, the app provides estimated wait times and open lane statuses at land ports of entry. This allows travelers to make better-informed decisions of the time and place they should cross the border. Wait times for pedestrian, passenger and commercial vehicle crossings are broken down by lane type (standard, SENTRI, NEXUS, FAST, Ready Lane, etc.). You can download the app from Apple’s App Store and Google Play.

Ice at Canalside a Big Hit


BUFFALO, N.Y. - It's only been open a few days, but it's already downtown's hottest destination. Since it's opening just a few days ago it has welcomed more than 6,000 Western New Yorkers.

The Ice at Canalside opened up last Thursday night. Over the past few days, the site has been packed with people looking to skate on the site where Memorial Auditorium once stood, or just to see the new gathering spot.

There is open skating at the rink every day this week, even on Christmas Day.
