Continuing with the new tradition of ringing in Buffalo’s wild weekend of St. Patrick’s Day festivities, Larkin Square is set to again welcome thousands of fun-seekers for its fourth annual free Live at O’Larkin concert, featuring three hours of nonstop live Celtic music and dance under the covered, heated boardwalk, surrounded by a fleet of food trucks and a local vendor market.
Set for Friday, March 18th, from 4:30-8pm, Live at O’Larkin will present four performances – the rollicking Celtic rock of McCarthyizm, traditional acoustic sounds from Poor Ould Goat, civil servant salutes from Greater Buffalo Firefighters Pipes & Drums, and youngsters in unison from Clann Na Cara School of Irish Dance. Guests of all ages will have plenty of choices for food and drink, including season-inspired offerings from neighborhood residents Flying Bison Brewing and Buffalo Distilling, and the year’s first mass gathering of local food trucks, just one month before before Food Truck Tuesdays return to Larkinville in mid-April. The event will also feature a Irish marketplace featuring Larkinville favorites: Buffalo Cake Pops, RetroBuffalo, Buffalo Distilling Co., and Undergrounds Coffee House & Roastery, selling festive food, drink and accessories!The Hydraulic Hearth Restaurant & Brewery and Flying Bison Brewery will both be open during the event for an all-around St. Patricks’ celebration in Larkinville.
Larkin Square Author Series is pleased to welcome Buffalo native Nancy Reisman back to Buffalo and to her first appearance at the Larkin Square Author Series. She will be speaking about her new novel, trompe l’oeil on Wednesday, March 9, 2016 at 5:30 pm in the Larkin Square Filling Station.
The New York Times wrote in a review of trompe l’oeil, “Genuinely satisfying, heart-shaking novels combine an absolute narrative authority with an apparently effortless style. You question nothing, savor every phrase and nuance, live willingly within their pages from the first word to the last. They can also be slippery things: impossible to wrap up or pin down. Just read it, you urge the uninitiated, already envying them the experience to come. Nancy Reisman’s second novel, “Trompe L’Oeil,” is one such book.” Read More
