WECK Birthday Bash This Friday

23 Mar

This Friday, our partner radio station, WECK1230, is celebrating their third birthday.  WECK has spent three years building a hometown radio alternative in WNY featuring local hosts like Brad Riter, Nick Mendola, Lorraine O’Donnell, Tom Donahue, Bill O’Loughlin and many others.  To celebrate three years of being in business and on the air, WECK is hosting a party for their listeners at Hucklebuckets on Sheridan Drive in Amherst.

The Sabres will be on the big screen and NCAA basketball games will also be on the screens around the restaurant throughout the night.

The party starts with a live broadcast of The Late Nick Mendola Program featuring a listener who intends to take on the Hucklebuckets food challenge, called “The Dumper“.   The Dumper is a burger which features a full pound of certified angus beef, stuffed with ultra sharp cheddar cheese, six more cheeses, bacon, chili, pulled pork, two fried eggs over easy, guacamole, onion rings, fresh cut fries, froggy skins, jalapeno, lettuce, tomato, mayo, and huckleberry bar-b-que.

After that spectacle of food eating goes down, Jeremy Hoyle of Strictly Hip will play for the crowd and there will be food and drink specials as well as prize giveaways and wine tastings.

There’s a Facebook invite for the event, so click on that if you’re so inclined.  Otherwise, just show up and have some beers and a good time.

The WNYMedia.net Festivus party is Thursday at 7:30 at Cole’s on Elmwood near Forest, right across from the brand-new Wyndham Hotel. We’ll provide the food, but Cole’s will have beer and drink specials for your frugality.

We’ll also be celebrating all of the Festivus traditions, including:

– Feats of Strength – Arm wrestling table of awesomeness will be provided.

– Airing Of The Grievances: Come and record your video grievances for a Festivus wrap-up video and feel free to pick up the microphone and let people in the room know how they’ve disappointed you this year!

– Gathering around Ye Olde ceremonial Festivus Pole!

We have a big year planned with all kinds of expanded content, new services and a new model for web journalism.
