The 25th Annual Taste of Buffalo kicked off Saturday with 56 restaurants participating this year and the day was hot in more ways than one. The 88 degree temperature and all the fantastic foods were just the tip of the proverbial iceberg. It was also a great place to see a number of local musical acts, all of which are new to the Taste this year and see friends you haven't seen in months. But the hottest part of all was getting to see plenty of beautiful women, the hottest of which could be seen right in front of City Hall and the 97Rock booth. I'm talking, of course, about the First Ladies of Buffalo, the Buffalo Jills. The Jills were on hand handing out Bills schedules and posing for pictures with fans from noon to 4 and rookies and vet alike seemed to pick up a lot of new fans.
Here's a few pictures from the day that feature Jills rookies Liz, Kristin M, and Shana (who put in 4 hours under the sun) as well as popular veteran Amanda F in a few scenes from the day.
If you missed Day 1 of the Taste, don't fret. Just make sure you make it to Day 2 and sample some of the great Buffalo foods, listen to some local bands, and of course, meet some of our beautiful Buffalo Jills.
Also, whether or not you make the Taste this weekend, don't forget that the Jills Golf Tournament is coming up on July 21st at Fox Valley Country Club in Lancaster, NY. The $125 fee includes a full round of golf, cart usage, lunch and dinner, the chance to win lots of prizes, entertainment, and of course, the chance to meet all the 2008-09 Buffalo Jills!
