Buffalo wings it for BBQ

The MM team was both bemused and amused to be invited to, and repeatedly reminded of, the Buffalo BBQ last month.

None of the lucky repor-ters seemed to have any idea who was behind the invite but, being hacks, any sign of a free bar and a good feed will have us turn up in droves.

We were then somewhat disappointed to hear the less than impressive “summer” meant that the BBQ had to be called off. But the following apology made it all worthwhile.

The wild wild west, Is forecast grey and wet, So a Buffalo barbeque night Would be no pretty sight. Whilst tomorrow’s event is no longer, The BBQ will return stronger So everyone please remember, Wednesday the 5th of September.
