Press Pass: 53 Things Every WNYer Must Do

Summer in Western New York is a time to get out and explore what the region has to offer. The August issue of Buffalo Spree has a special feature on 53 things to do.

In this week's Press Pass, Spree Editor Elizabeth Licata tells WBFO's Mark Scott that the list begins in a most quirky way by recommending a taste of Buffalo with a twist -- Seabar's Beef on Weck Sushi.

Mark and Elizabeth talk about musician Willie Nile, who has appeared in concert at number two on the list, the Sportsmen Tavern, and former Buffalo News Editor Margaret Sullivan, who enjoys a charbroiled hot dog and loganberry at number 17 Connor's in Angola. 

Elizabeth also touches on the East Aurora farmer's market, how to prepare the best-tasting corn and a new public art installation at the Tifft Nature Preserve.
