Wing Your Way Over to Hamilton

If you get a chance before the game, make sure you check out everything Hamilton has to offer, especially the Buffalo wings. That’s what Visuals Editor Julia Pelish did, and she wrote about her experience in her story “A fresh look at Hamilton.”

Pelish: “Long regarded as an industrial city with little to offer tourists, Hamilton is experiencing a transformation that may even tempt cynical Torontonians to drop by for a look. A recent weekend visit to this city of more than half a million people located on Lake Ontario between Toronto and Niagara Falls revealed a creative grassroots energy nourished by community spirit.

“Although I live in Toronto, I am an American and not fully aware of the rivalry between Hogtown and Steeltown. What I do know is we all root for underdogs, and Hamilton is endearing because it embraces its role as the smaller, less affluent and mostly overlooked city on the Great Lakes. The great thing about underdogs is when they get even a small victory, they celebrate as if they’ve won a war. So it’s no surprise that when Hamilton — not Toronto — was chosen as the location for the first Anchor Bar franchise in Canada citizens arrived with gusto.”
