From the Niagara Falls Review:
One of the most beloved superstars in wrestling history enjoyed a nice and relaxing weekend in Niagara Falls.
Brutus (The Barber) Beefcake was in town to attend the Falls View Hose Brigade’s two-day pop culture trivia night.
The event began with an evening that was open to the public Friday, and concluded with an evening just for members of the Dunn Street club Saturday.
But in between asking and answering trivia questions, the man known for his steel shears and unique outfits as one of the sports-entertainment’s most memorable characters throughout the 1980s and ’90s, took in some of the city’s attractions.
“There’s lots of restaurants and cool stuff to do, and chill out and relax,” said Beefcake.
From WGRZ Channel 2 in Buffalo (includes video):
There’s a new effort to spark tourism in Niagara Falls by building more attractions for visitors.
Leaders say this one differs from others because it seeks to target certain types of development in a specific area, and that funding decisions will be made locally.
$3 million in state funds, gleaned the state’s cut of revenue from the Seneca Niagara Casino, has now been secured to help entrepreneurs build attractions within one mile of the casino, according to NYS Senator Robert Ortt.
