The second leg of our New York adventure will take us to Cooperstown in upstate New York for the annual Baseball Hall of Fame Weekend! A visit to Cooperstown to see this amazing baseball museum is a must for all true baseball fans. Michael and I first visited Cooperstown in 2008 and vowed to come back when Houston Astros players Craig Biggio and Jeff Bagwell were both inducted into the Hall of Fame. Biggio was inducted in 2015, and Bagwell will be inducted next weekend. We are fortunate to witness this event in person!

Our overnight visit to the area will find The Weekend Gourmet crew enjoying gorgeous scenic views of Niagara Falls and an up-close-and-personal view of the power of Mother Nature via a Maid of the Mist boat tour of the Falls. We also plan to sample two iconic Buffalo culinary specialties while we're in the area: roast beef on 'weck sandwiches and Buffalo wings. Not just any wings, mind you. We're eating Buffalo wings where they were invented in 1964: Buffalo's Anchor Bar. Boom! We'll sample their legendary wings and learn a bit about the history of how the Buffalo wing was created...and how wings became a staple around the world over the past 50+ years. Doesn't this picture from Anchor Bar make your mouth water?!?!?
What a fun -- and tasty -- way to end a truly epic New York road trip!
