Vodka Distillery Headed For Lombard Street?

The former Chudy Paper building on Lombard Street across from the Broadway Market is being pursued by brothers Ray and Glenn Kasprzyk as the site of distillery they want to open.

From Buffalo Business First:

Brothers Ray and Glenn Kasprzyk, later this week, are expected to purchase a former Chudy Paper Co. warehouse on Lombard Street and use the building as the manufacturing base for Bison Distillery, their company that will produce rye-based vodka and, later, whiskey. The brothers have formed Polonia Holdings LLC to buy the 5,700-square-foot building and begin work on vodka production.

Bison Distillery would be the first vodka manufacturer in Buffalo’s Fillmore district in generations.

“We’re doing this to help the neighborhood,” Ray Kasprzyk said. “We’re bring an old building back to life and, at the same time, we are creating a brand name for Buffalo.”

This is great news for the neighborhood and will inject some new life on Lombard Street.

The Kielbasa Diaries and Edward Zawadzki Book Signing at Broadway Market

10122013(rev-bfalarge)
In commemoration of Polish Heritage Month, the 125th Anniversary Committee of the Broadway Market is presenting two exciting and historical events that will occur at the Broadway Market on October 12th. This is your opportunity to spend the entire day at the Broadway Market, attend a lecture, shop at the market, listen to music, and attend a play and post play reception.

The world release of the book, “Poles in the New World: The New Generation” written by Eddy Zawadzki, will be held at 10:00am in the Broadway Market Community Room, where Mr. Zawadzki will be on hand to unveil his new book. Mr. Zawadzki is a well-known author in Polish communities in both Canada and the U.S., and he is no stranger to the Western New York area.

The ticketed event will occur from 10:00am – noon, where a book signing and lecture will occur. In addition, a continental breakfast and a 125th Anniversary mug of the Broadway Market will be provided. Pre-registration is required and the cost is $35.00. Checks should be made out to the B.E.S.T. Community Association. Space is limited

At noon a free lecture will occur, and books may be purchased directly from Mr. Zawadzki after the lecture.

At 2:30 pm, the cast of the world premiere play, “The Kielbasa Diaries: The Butter Lamb Lies Down on Broadway”, written and directed by Mr. Steve Roylance from Road Less Traveled Productions, will arrive to prepare for this historic performance. At 3:00 pm, the performance will begin in the Broadway Market Community Room.

The play was conceived and written during the Easter Season 2013 at the Broadway Market. Based on countless interviews during that period, the play mirrors the changing times and reflections of the Broadway Market throughout the decades. You may even find a part of yourself in the play. After the play, a Polish style reception will be held.

Pre-registration is required and the cost is $25.00. Checks should be made out to the B.E.S.T. Community Association. Space is limited.
