Here’s How Step Out Buffalo Can Help Promote Your B2B Business

About Us: Who We Are

Step Out Buffalo ( is the ultimate guide to dining, entertainment and things to do in Buffalo and Western New York.

We’re locals. We’re eaters, drinkers, doers, movers and shakers. We’re curious, adventurous, upbeat, helpful, and don’t take ourselves too seriously. We love our city and work hard to support, promote, and tell the world how awesome it is to live, work, and play in the greater Buffalo area.

We’re all digital, super social, and more visual than any other local publication. Ever heard the saying “A picture’s worth a thousand words?” Yeah, we’re all over that.

We also plan our own events and festivals, because Buffalonians love to party and frankly, we had to get in on that.
