Buffalo fans know how to tailgate and party with the best of them meaning you’ll be in for a good time when attending a Bisons baseball game. The tailgate scene here may be subdued compared to what you’ll find at Bills games, but that doesn’t mean you won’t have a great time hanging out with Bisons fans before the game.
One thing that makes tailgating at Bisons games a bit more relaxed is the fact that rather than having one large parking lot there are several smaller ones owned by private companies. The small lots keep the wild tailgating down a bit, but you’ll still have a good time grilling out where it’s permitted.
Those of you looking to hit up the bars though will be in luck as there are plenty of places to grab a drink near Sahlen Field including the Pearl Street Grill & Brewery. The Pearl Street Grill & Brewery is quite popular among Buffalonians and is an excellent place to down a few drinks with friends before the game.
Finally, no trip to a sporting event in Buffalo is complete without having some Buffalo wings. Take some time before or after the game to grab some wings to get the full Buffalo game day experience.
Pre-gaming before a Bisons game is a fun time for any baseball or sports fan, so come out early and get the most out of your visit to Sahlen Field.
