Now that summer is in full swing, it’s the perfect time to get out of the office (even if your office is at home) and treat yourself to an extra-long lunch.

When the weather is nice, why not duck out of the office for an hour or two with some company and grab some grub from one of Buffalo’s incredible lunch hot spots? It sure beats scarfing down a sandwich at your desk.

Besides, everyone knows that the best cure for a workday slump isn’t more coffee - it’s one of your fellow co-workers asking,  “Where are we going for lunch?”
