From the Buffalo State Record:

Jeah! Darrin Rose here, alongside Eddie Della Siepe. Our Video On Trial Jury Duty stand-up tour brought us to Niagara Falls last week. Niagara Falls is awesome. It’s like a mini-Vegas, minus the Cirque De Soleil and the hookers. But I’ve been assured they’re working on it.
The big attraction in the Falls – besides, y’know, the Falls – is Clifton Hill, a street filled with tourist attractions, wonderment, and drunk teenagers from New York state. Since the drinking age in Ontario is 19, and the drinking age in New York is 21, you can’t swing your arms on Clifton Hill without hitting an American high school cheerleader stumbling in her high heels, or a 20-year-old dude in an Abercrombie and Fitch t-shirt high fiving his buddies while laughing at their buddy puking. It’s pretty classy.
But sliding though the drunken fracas to the attractions is worth it!
Not a very fair depiction of Clifton Hill, but it would probably still be appealing to the MM crowd.
