    From the Niagara Gazette:

    Those who could not point out Western New York on a map may still be familiar with what are among its chief cultural exports – chicken wings and Niagara Falls.

    The two will be within blocks of each other by Nov. 10, when the Merani Hotel Group will open an Anchor Bar franchise inside its Holiday Inn on Buffalo Avenue.

    The development was first announced by Niagara Falls City Councilwoman Kristen Grandinetti during a Gazette-sponsored debate at the Main Street public library on Monday. It was confirmed Tuesday by Merani Hotel Group’s Vice President of Operations, Michael Marsh.

    From WGRZ Channel 2 in Buffalo:

    And so it continues.

    After five weeks of recess, Tuesday’s city council meeting in Niagara Falls ended without a vote on the $25 million hotel proposal from developer Mark Hamister, once again stalling a project that could bring tens of millions of dollars to this struggling city.

    “I am just baffled,” Councilwoman Kristen Grandinetti said. “We had 30 days. I assumed that after we came off a break, we’d be voting, I’ve literally spent the last 5 weeks of my life focused on this.”
