Explore Buffalo Plans Unique Buffalo Harbor Museum Tour

Join Explore Buffalo for a behind-the-scenes look at the Buffalo Harbor Museum's archives and storage. This area of the museum has never been open to the public, with the first floor containing a vast display of objects of historic, artistic and scientific interest!

The event will take place beginning at 1 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 26, at the Buffalo Harbor Museum, 66 Erie St., Buffalo. Twenty- to 30-minute mini tours of storage areas, led by knowledgeable museum personnel, will also be included.

This is an "inside parka tour" as these storage areas are not heated. Please be sure to dress warmly — boots, gloves and a hat are recommended. The first tour will start at 1:15 p.m. and the last will start at 3:15 p.m. Allow at least 60 minutes in total to enjoy this unique collection of models, maps, ship artifacts, personal gear, logbooks and more.

Dog Ears Bookstore to Host First-time Author Joe DiNardo

Author Joe DiNardo has released his first book, “A Letter to My Wife,” a 55-page dedication that follows his journey with his late wife, Marcia, from cancer diagnosis through death. A funny, sad and hopeful look at the beauty of love found and lost, DiNardo uses anecdotes, practical wisdom and a unique approach to storytelling to create shared experiences with his readers — many of whom have gone through or know someone who has gone through a battle with cancer.

Dog Ears Bookstore & Café, 688 Abbott Road, Buffalo, will host DiNardo for a book-signing event from 5 to 7 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 9.

DiNardo is the CEO, director and founder of Counsel Financial, a highly specialized commercial lender offering loans and credit lines to law firms. In these roles he oversees all business transactions and provides long-term strategy for the company.
