    Come on now. You should know that wings were born in Buffalo, not NF. Otherwise they'd be called NF wings.

    Either way, outside of Western NY, the wings suck.

    In commemoration of the heroic people of Alkmaar the city has a big parade, a fun fair, several free concerts and the kids have a day off school to enjoy these festivities. The whole day ends with a big firework display......
    Well it's party time again, October 8th when all alkmaarders (people from Alkmaar) celebrate the victory and generally have a good time

    Don't forget to tell us about your town/area or country

    Re: History, tell us about your place.

    Hello,

    I live in Bucharest, Romania.
    A few city highlights here (link). The nightlife is great in Bucharest, for people who are into partying and drinking. The old center is full of clubs, bars and restaurants which are open until the morning...like a nonstop party.

    Here's a video about the Palace of Parliament, which is the largest building in Europe and the second largest building in the world (the first is the Pentagon). (link [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-O8g6AKBpDc&list=FLvO3Qagop7l_0jaYgymyJYQ&index=4"]here[/ame])

    Also, in Romania you can find two of the most dangerous roads in the world: Transfagarasan and Transalpina, which are a favourite destination for all the bikers. (link Transfagarasan [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HtzEnNSxzJQ&list=FLvO3Qagop7l_0jaYgymyJYQ"]here[/ame] and [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OCgft55KLJg"]here[/ame], link Transalpina [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hRnAjbpu-bw"]here[/ame])

    What else?..a lot of castles in the center of Romania, in the county named Transylvania (a region best known for the Dracula myth)...beautiful landscapes (Romania has all the forms of relief), great mountains...a nice seaside, lots of lakes....cheap alcohol and lots of very beautiful girls

  6. Thanks Cloggy, Humperdinkel thanked for this post
