It's that time of the year that is perfect for comfort food. The colder temperatures have people craving those dishes such as wings, beef on weck and French onion soup, which are all staples of Buffalo cuisine.

The winter is a time, however, that usually has less traffic in local restaurants. January and February are the deadest months of the year for food service and retail.

One of the best places for those comfort foods, especially wings, is taking some time off.

Bar-Bill Tavern in East Aurora and the the Bar-Bill location in Clarence will be closing for a week. They made the announcement on social media on Thursday.

The closing will happen between February 12-19 and they will resume operations on Monday, February 20th. This is something they try to do annually, just to give their employees some much-needed rest and relaxation.

Bar-Bill also says that they will have very big announcements next week, which has everyone wondering what exactly that food? New wing sauces? Another location?

Nine-Eleven Tavern in South Buffalo recently had their week off, which they also do annually during the winter time.

These people who work at these restaurants work extremely hard. It gets so busy in a place like Bar-Bill Tavern, especially on a Friday or Saturday night. All that hard work over the summer and fall, they have absolutely earned the time off for a week.

Bar-Bill also said in that post they will so some winter updates as well. Make sure to get there this weekend, before the week off takes place.
