Come out early on Saturday to support the newly appointed Reign 27 of the Imperial Court Of Buffalo! ICOB is celebrating the ‘Step Downs’ of Miss Firecracker 2016-2017, Angel Nicole Callari, and Mr. Firecracker 2016-2017, Ralph Farinella. A suggested donation of $5 goes to support all the good work the Court will be doing in the upcoming year. The LGBTQ networking event is always a great opportunity to meet and greet, a chance to have a drink with community friends you don’t always get to see and possibly make some new ones. This month’s mixer is at the Preservation Pub, also the monthly site for Bear Night, just around the corner from where Allen meets Main, and is sponsored by Roswell Park Cancer Institute.
