One thing I have learned in my wanderings literally around the world is that there are people from Buffalo, NY EVERYWHERE. Here in Nashville there is a haven for Western New Yorkers who are also fans of the NFL’s Buffalo Bills – the Nashville Bills Backers. That place is Donelson’s McNamara’s Irish Pub & Restaurant on game day for food, beverage, and a whole lot of hooting’ and hollering’. For food McNamara’s has their usual great Irish offerings, but they also have some off-menu WNY favorites like Beef on Weck, proper Buffalo Chicken Wings with bleu cheese, and a few cases of Labatt’s Blue beer. Last Sunday I tried their Irish Nachos: steak fries covered with cheddar, scallions, diced tomatoes, and Shepherd’s Pie meat – lovely!

I met up with our friend Jason Waldron of Absolute Refinishing in Lebanon and got to meet a Buffalo and Nashville legend, Mr. Pete Weber. Before relocating to Nashville and becoming the play by play voice of the Nashville Predators Mr. Weber did color commentating and post game interviews for the Bills as well as play by play for the Buffalo Sabres. (Both Mr. Weber and Mr. Waldron were sporting blue #12 Jim Kelly jerseys last Sunday to watch the Bills ‘squish the fish’, beating the Miami Dolphins handily – see photo.)

The Nashville Bills Backers just don’t meet for fellowship with like minded folk and good food, they also have raised thousands of dollars over the years for Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee.
