Locally Made Salsa Has Hollywood Roots

Locally Made Salsa Has Hollywood Roots

Some people leave Buffalo for Hollywood, but this is a story of someone who left Hollywood for Buffalo! Ron Glatzhofer was born and raised in Hollywood and worked for more than 20 years in the entertainment business, first as a roadie and eventually working his way up to tour manager for musical groups such as Parliament Funkadelic and Aerosmith. 

In 1988, when Ron came to Buffalo as a tour manager for Rick James, he met his future wife while staying at the Holiday Inn on Delaware Avenue. She was the director of sales at the hotel, and they now reside in Angola where Ron, after retiring from the road, turned to his other love ... cooking.

Eyewear Trends 2012

Eyewear Trends 2012

Eyewear trends for spring/summer 2012 will be about style, dynamics, innovation and luxury because sunglasses are a great way to show off your fashion taste so choosing the right look is important. The song I wear my sunglasses at night takes on a whole new meaning this spring/summer 2012. Let’s face it sunglasses are designed to protect your eyes from the harmful UVs that are often associated with cancer of the skin, wrinkles, sunburns and other eye damages. Designers are still all about keeping your eyes healthy but they also know that glasses can make or break a hot look providing style, comfort and function.
