What’s one of the best ways to test the waters, when looking to open up a shop? Start with a pop-up series. That’s exactly what Pat and Billy Sandora-Nastyn are doing with their new retail plant business called Daddy’s Plants. The two dedicated green thumbs are hoping to carve out a shopping niche for those who consider themselves “plant parents” in WNY.  

“Leading up to Mother’s and Father’s Days, Daddy’s Plants is prepping to launch three new pop-up oases in Buffalo,” said the entrepreneurs, who many might know from their popular YouTube Channel. “We’re also looking to put down permanent roots soon with an official brick and mortar.”

Now that the couple has had a chance to really settle into Buffalo, after they moved here (from NYC) back in 2014, they are setting out on a totally new adventure – opening a plant emporium has been their dream for a while.

“What started as a collection of just a few small plants quickly took over most of the free surfaces in our home,” says Pat. “Friends and family would regularly ask us for houseplant advice, and we knew there had to be other ‘plant parents’ in Buffalo who could benefit from a dedicated plant shop.”

This past December, Billy went on a road trip across southern Canada and then back across the northern US, researching the business. He made stop-offs at a number of notable plant shops, talking to the owners about their businesses. This information is all going to come in handy, as the couple prepares for the pop-ups. 

“Whether you’re a seasoned plant parent or a newbie working on your green thumb, we can help you find something right for you,” says Billy. “As the son of a horticulturalist, I grew up visiting nurseries and greenhouses with my dad. I know that caring for plants can be intimidating to some people, which is why we always try to handpick a mix of varieties for every level of experience.”

With all of the new flower shops springing up around town, it’s great to see that there’s now an emphasis on selling a wide variety of plants (selling indoor tropical and desert plants and accessories). It will be interesting to follow Pat and Billy as they navigate the pop-ups, while gathering speed towards their future goal of opening their own emporium.

You can follow Daddy’s Plants on Facebook, or visit the shop online. Also, be sure to sign up for the Daddy’s Plants newsletter.

October 4 – November 17, 2019 Opening Reception: October 4, 6-9pm Screening on Thursdays & Saturdays, 59 minutes

Remembrance of Things Fast: True Stories Visual Lies, 1994 by John Maybury is a landmark work, in terms of its use of high-end post-production techniques and visual f/x to construct an imaginary, complex and thoroughly queer virtual landscape — one which extravagantly references the tropes and visual language of broadcast television, underground film, gay porn, drag & club culture, activist détournement, and music videos, while fluidly slipping between the boundaries separating those mediums. – Sean Capone, curator

I’m excited to share with you the nine opportunities for you to prepare for the New Year of Transformation.2020 is going to a most memorable year!

We start the year with a type of `de-construction’ of our lives, known as the Capricorn line-up, and end the year with a new business-economic-social cycle called the Jupiter Saturn conjunction. Translation; some aspect of our lives is dying to be reborn!

Meanwhile, the planets of relationship–Venus & Mars– will be making major retrogrades, creating a desire to `rethink’ our ambitions, our goals, and `relationships.’

These popular `year ahead’ classes have been part of my service to the community for over a decade now. You don’t have to know `anything’ about astrology to benefit because they are presented in an easy-to-understand format. A power power will guide you in the understanding, and handouts will secure your knowledge. Plus! You will receive a `thank you’ gift certificate of $20 good towards any of my services! Classes held at various locations in WNY plus on-line. Fee: $32.

Please select one of the classes & RSVP at my website: http://cassandrajoanbutler.com or at my meetup group to ensure your spot: https://www.meetup.com/Cassandras-CosmiConnections-Spiritual-Tools-for-Healing/events/266856072/

1) I’ll be at the wonderful Fellowships of the Spirit worship service speaking on the `year ahead during their weekly service on DECEMBER 8th, Sunday at 6:00 pm. Come on down to 282 Dale Drive, Cassadaga, NY for this event!

2) A Winter Solstice Celebration & Message Gallery Night with the wonderful Rev. Angie Abt, on Wednesday December 18th at 7:00 pm at the UUAmherst Church ($30)

This class is a comprehensive workshop on artisan tea that provides an opportunity to sample single-origin teas handcrafted by some of the most talented tea masters in China and Nepal. Attendees will learn about how tea is cultivated, harvested, and crafted in the factory by the tea master. The tasting portion of the workshop will be centered around ten teas that attendees will infuse using a ceremonial Chinese tea set. The types of teas explored in this class include black, green, white, and pu’erh (both sheng “raw” and shu “ripe” pu’erh).

Aera Tea was established with the simple purpose of sourcing outstanding tea from farmers whose cultivation and business practices demonstrate care for their workers, their community, and the environment. Our suppliers are truly masters of their craft. Our close relationships with them allows us to procure the best portions of each season’s harvest. We only source tea from gardens that we have visited personally and meet our standards for quality and sustainability. We believe that good tea should not be judged solely by taste, but its impact on the community.

Aera Tea was founded by Joe and Victoria Stanek, a brother and sister duo who are passionate about advancing North American tea culture and educating fellow tea drinkers about where their tea comes from, how tea is cultivated and crafted into specialty tea, and the different methods of preparing and serving tea.

Not everyone experiences happiness at the Christmas holidays. In this season of joy and love, many struggle with darkness and grief. Dealing with the death of loved ones, facing life

Not everyone experiences happiness at the Christmas holidays. In this season of joy and love, many struggle with darkness and grief. Dealing with the death of loved ones, facing life after divorce or separation, coping with job loss, living with cancer or disease that places a question mark over the future, and numerous other human conditions can make parties and the joy of others painful for those living through dark times.

Calvary Church is creating a sacred and safe space for people facing these losses – or, loss of any kind. On Saturday, December 14th at 4 pm, the weekly worship service will be a quiet and meditative service of prayers and readings reminding us that God is with us wherever we may be, a light in the darkness. For this brief service, we share in the quiet darkness of this season, we privately remember times of joy, and we pray with and for people everywhere who long for a future sustained by hope and grace. The service will last about 45 minutes and a reception will follow.

Calvary Episcopal Church is located at 20 Milton Street at the corner of South Cayuga, one block south of Main St. in Williamsville. Limited parking is available next to the church with parking available on Milton St. Overflow parking is available at the municipal lot adjacent to Island Park behind the Williamsville Library. At Calvary Episcopal Church, all are welcome. Call 633-7800 for more information, or visit www.calvaryepiscopal.net.

JazzBuffalo is excited to present 3 times Grammy® Nominee for Best Latin Jazz Album, Jane Bunnett, and Maqueque. In the past few years, the groundbreaking all-women band, Jane Bunnett and Maqueque have forged a path in presented the sounds of Afro-Cuban and Latin Jazz to the world. The band consists of an ensemble of Cuban female performers creating a vibrant sound made magical by the soprano saxophone of Jane Bunnett.

The ensemble received a Grammy® for their latest highly-acclaimed album, Oddara. In September of 2019, Jane Bunnett and Maqueque will release a new album. Special guest on the upcoming album is Nikki Brown, the Sacred Steel Guitar sensation.

For this special concert, Jane Bunnett and Maqueque will present Latin Christmas, which will also feature an appearance by Nikki Brown. The ensemble will consist of some of the best female Cuban jazz artists assembled here in the US and in Canada. Maqueque’s stellar rhythm section features founding members Dánae Olano, Celia Jiménez, and Yissy García. They’re joined by two recent additions, Mary Paz and Melvis Santa, who gained attention as both a musician and actor since her work in the 2012 anthology film 7 Days in Havana. More than a band, Maqueque is the most visible manifestation of a movement that’s rewriting outdated thinking about the Cuban music scene.

A unique Christmas presentation for the whole family not to be missed! Special pricing for students and children 12 years old and under! Two shows: 3 pm and 7 pm!

One of the finest soprano saxophonists in jazz, Jane Bunnett originally studied classical piano but tendonitis cut short that career. After seeing the Charles Mingus group in San Francisco, Bunnett was inspired to play advanced jazz. On soprano, she recalls Steve Lacy a bit (whom she studied with), while her flute playing is quite distinctive. Bunnett has always had major players on her records: in addition to her husband, trumpeter Larry Cramer, pianist Don Pullen had been a fixture on her records; her 1988 debut for Dark Light also featured Dewey Redman; and she utilized Sheila Jordan and Jeanne Lee. Her adventurous 1991 effort, Spirits of Havana, found her playing with many of Cuba’s top jazz musicians. After moving to Paris in the mid-’90s, Bunnett continued to explore Afro-Cuban jazz, releasing several critically acclaimed discs for Blue Note, including Chamalongo, Ritmo Soul, and Alma de Santiago.

In 2002, Bunnett took a brief sabbatical from Afro-Cuban music and released Spirituals Dedications, highlighting her interest in both traditional gospel and modern compositions with spiritual themes by Rahsaan Roland Kirk, Stanley Cowell, and Charles Mingus. The following year, she took home Juno and Grammy awards for her album Cuban Odyssey. She then collaborated with the Penderecki String Quartet for 2004’s Red Dragonfly (aka Tombo) and joined the Afro-Cuban/Haitian ten-voice a cappella choir Grupo Vocal Desandann for 2006’s Embracing Voices.

In 2011, Bunnett paired with Cuban pianist Hilario Durán for Cuban Rhapsody. She then collaborated on two albums with the all-female Cuban jazz sextet Maqueque: 2014’s Jane Bunnett Maqueque and 2016’s Oddara. ~ Scott Yanow

Mirabo Press is thrilled to be hosting a residency for Korean American artist Maria Chang from December 8th–20th, 2019.

Maria Chang grew up between the United States and South Korea, moving to Korea after high school to study fine art at Hongik University. Her work describes the breakdown and reconstruction of objects perceived through her own blurry vision—a result of losing focus in her right eye. Chang’s artwork has been shown across South Korea and in the United States. She is currently working as a Gana Atelier Resident Artist with Gana Art, one of the first major art galleries established in South Korea in 1983.

Please join us for Maria Chang’s exhibition, featuring paintings, sculptures, and the prints made with the Mirabo Press team throughout her residency here. The opening reception will be held on Thursday, December 19th from 5:30–9:00PM. Maria Chang’s Website: www.mariachang.works About Mirabo Press: Mirabo Press is a printmaking studio founded by Bob Fleming, Rachel Shelton, and Mizin Shin. We offer limited edition printmaking by contract to individuals and galleries, working to expand the local art scene by collaborating with both regional and national artists. These collaborative opportunities allow for advancement of the medium and we are happy to work with artists both inexperienced and well versed in print media.

Equipped for intaglio, monotype, relief, and screen printing, Mirabo Press also provides educational and community programming. Workshops for small groups designed to give individual attention cover a range of processes, and local educational institutions are welcome to bring students to the studio to learn about this democratic and socially formative medium.

October 4 – November 17, 2019 Opening Reception: October 4, 6-9pm Screening on Thursdays & Saturdays, 59 minutes

Remembrance of Things Fast: True Stories Visual Lies, 1994 by John Maybury is a landmark work, in terms of its use of high-end post-production techniques and visual f/x to construct an imaginary, complex and thoroughly queer virtual landscape — one which extravagantly references the tropes and visual language of broadcast television, underground film, gay porn, drag & club culture, activist détournement, and music videos, while fluidly slipping between the boundaries separating those mediums. – Sean Capone, curator

Lavender Haze Collective Presents: String Nights @ The Tabernacle bluegrass, Americana, & folk music Fridays, 8-11 PM $7 all ages

The Brothers Blue The Brothers Blue is an American folk music trio based in western New York. They specialize in acoustic traditionals, originals and old-time folk music.

The Old Main Hailing from the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains in Upstate New York, The Old Main has drawn favorable comparisons to bands such as The Avett Brothers, The Band, and Dawes, while retaining a sound and style uniquely their own. With catchy original music and creatively reimagined covers, they’ve been called everything from Folk-Rock to alt-Americana, though no label or description compares to hearing their foot-stomping music in person. Acoustic guitar, harmonica, banjo, upright bass, drums, and ringing vocal harmonies make up The Old Main’s raw acoustic sound, and their high-energy live performances are enjoyed by all. The Old Main continues to build acclaim and expand their already strong following all over the North East.

This class is a comprehensive workshop on artisan tea that provides an opportunity to sample single-origin teas handcrafted by some of the most talented tea masters in China and Nepal.

This class is a comprehensive workshop on artisan tea that provides an opportunity to sample single-origin teas handcrafted by some of the most talented tea masters in China and Nepal. Attendees will learn about how tea is cultivated, harvested, and crafted in the factory by the tea master. The tasting portion of the workshop will be centered around ten teas that attendees will infuse using a ceremonial Chinese tea set. The types of teas explored in this class include black, green, white, and pu’erh (both sheng “raw” and shu “ripe” pu’erh).

Aera Tea was established with the simple purpose of sourcing outstanding tea from farmers whose cultivation and business practices demonstrate care for their workers, their community, and the environment. Our suppliers are truly masters of their craft. Our close relationships with them allows us to procure the best portions of each season’s harvest.

Whoever said Santa was an only child? This Christmas, join Hot Mama’s Canteen as it hosts Out of the Claus-et, a live interview with Sandy Claus: Santa’s older, gayer drunker sister. From #metoo to the elf uprising of 2001, Sandy dishes the dirt with up-and-coming reality TV journalist, America Stevens.

Starring Kristen Becker, the lovable drunkard Sandy Claus sets the record straight about the North Pole and removes the shroud of secrecy that has long hidden the truth around Santa’s empire.

This holiday show has been performed for the last two seasons in Provincetown, MA, where Buffalo native Kristen Becker currently resides. This year is the first time she will be presenting the show to her hometown of Buffalo, New York, where she is widely regarded as the godmother of Buffalo’s burgeoning comedy scene, and was the first general manager of Buffalo’s Helium Comedy Club.

Introducing Buffalo Academy for Visual and Performing Arts graduate Roger Gossom-Hill as America Stevens, this adult-themed holiday romp is sure to bring a wide array of Buffalo’s community together for this Sunday matinee cabaret.

The service format alternates between scripture readings, anthems, hymns and carols. St. Paul’s Cathedral Choir and the Treble Choir will provide music for this service. St. Paul’s Episcopal Cathedral 139 Pearl Street Buffalo,

Instruction exists in group and individual basis. Focus is on both theoretical and technical development. Once each class concludes everyone gains both knowledge and a physical series of prints.

October 4 – November 17, 2019 Opening Reception: October 4, 6-9pm Screening on Thursdays & Saturdays, 59 minutes

Remembrance of Things Fast: True Stories Visual Lies, 1994 by John Maybury is a landmark work, in terms of its use of high-end post-production techniques and visual f/x to construct an imaginary, complex and thoroughly queer virtual landscape — one which extravagantly references the tropes and visual language of broadcast television, underground film, gay porn, drag & club culture, activist détournement, and music videos, while fluidly slipping between the boundaries separating those mediums. – Sean Capone, curator

This class is a comprehensive workshop on artisan tea that provides an opportunity to sample single-origin teas handcrafted by some of the most talented tea masters in China and Nepal. Attendees will learn about how tea is cultivated, harvested, and crafted in the factory by the tea master. The tasting portion of the workshop will be centered around ten teas that attendees will infuse using a ceremonial Chinese tea set. The types of teas explored in this class include black, green, white, and pu’erh (both sheng “raw” and shu “ripe” pu’erh).

Aera Tea was established with the simple purpose of sourcing outstanding tea from farmers whose cultivation and business practices demonstrate care for their workers, their community, and the environment. Our suppliers are truly masters of their craft. Our close relationships with them allows us to procure the best portions of each season’s harvest. We only source tea from gardens that we have visited personally and meet our standards for quality and sustainability. We believe that good tea should not be judged solely by taste, but its impact on the community.

Jamie Haen, OTR/L, RYT, Reiki Master, Theta Healing Practitioner Jamie was born and raised in Buffalo, NY with many childhood and adult “opportunities” which helped her look within to find her own Truth. She knew from a very young age the power of positive thinking and that in a world of chaos there was always peace and light within if we could access it. Jamie learned the power of our thoughts and feelings manifest our reality during a difficult battle with infertility. She experienced her first of many manifestations and adopted a baby locally in only 5 months. She then conceived and has 2 beautiful girls who are 8 months apart. Camryn Faith is 12 and has Autism. She is the most joyous, loving child who rarely suffers in her world. She lives in the moment, goes with the flow of life, and accepts changes along the way. Jordyn Hope is 11 and is a wise, spiritual, old soul who shares her infinite intelligence with her Mom often. She is an incredible dancer! Jamie is a pediatric Occupational Therapist and loves what she does! She received her 200 hour Yoga Teacher Certification in 2014 and now integrates yoga as well as her other holistic modalities in her student’s lives.
