Now that the snow has finally arrived, it's time to get cozy with a Western New York favorite – the Buffalo Soup-Fest.

“We have decided to gather some of the area’s best restaurants in one arena to sip, slurp, and sample some of the finest soups we have to offer,” according to the Soup-fest’s website.
