The Buffalo Zoo will debut the BuffaLoveFest, an evening dedicated to celebrating our city’s perseverance and relative revival.

From 5:30 to 9:30 p.m. on May 31, food trucks, local breweries and artisans will congregate at the Buffalo Zoo, 300 Parkside Ave., to highlight the city’s recent success stories—and, honestly, to party. Tickets are $20 pre-sale—order them here—or $30 at the door. Admission entitles the attendee to two drink tickets as well, which should allow you to stroll around confidently among strangers.
