1) National Buffalo Wing Fest, noon to 9 p.m. Sept. 1, noon to 7 p.m. Sept. 2 at Coca-Cola Field (275 Washington St.). Admission is $5 at the gate, and food tickets run for $1 apiece. Commentary: For once in the world of wings, size doesn't matter.

While promotional bluster centered on a vendor coming from London, England, it's not exactly a city known for wing greatness. Prove us wrong, Sticky Wings! The News' Francesca Bond wrote about the blue-cheese bobbing competitions (the pictures from last year are pretty nuts), and WYRK reported Buffalo's Jason Tartick, who finished third on "The Bachelorette" this summer, will be on the scene.

A provocative exploration of sexuality, her film spearheaded a selection of this year’s programme that underscores the complex relationship between modernising cultures and sexual identity. This year’s theme of identity seems fitting for a festival undergoing a period of intense self-exploration regarding its role within the industry.
