The Buffalo Zoo Announces Highest Attendance In Nearly 30 Years
Buffalo N.Y. (February 15, 2017) – After closing the books, the Buffalo Zoo is proud to announce that 538,100 visitors streamed through the admission gates in 2016, which is 52,000 more than in 2015.
With the birth of many new animals, including the first African Lion cubs born in some twenty-five years, the Zoo was a must-see destination in Western New York in 2016. Continued interest in the new Arctic Edge exhibit, better-than-expected weather, and revamped marketing initiatives collectively contributed to the Zoo’s overall attendance. This is the highest attendance for the Zoo since 1987 when visitation reached 545,800.

BOOTLEG BUCHA CHAMPIONS NEW YORK STATE KOMBUCHA BREWERS
Buffalo, N.Y.) -- The future of kombucha production in New York State is bright, thanks to the efforts led by Buffalo-based Bootleg Bucha, the city's first kombucha brewer and distributor. A news release earlier this week from Kombucha Brewers International (KBI), a trade organization, announced an agreement between the New York State Liquor Authority (SLA), New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets and statewide kombucha brewers to allow continued production of kombucha tea across New York. This means, effective immediately, KBI members who were told they couldn’t make kombucha without an SLA license were again able to do so, provided they meet the food safety requirements put forth by the Department of Agriculture and Markets.
