What people are saying…
“When Bonadio was looking for a place to host our anniversary party, Explore & More was the logical choice. It is centrally located, attractive to our employees, clients and friends, and enabled us to show off another piece of Buffalo’s resurgence. The Explore & More team was great to work with and allowed us to put our own touches on the space. Our guests got to feel what is it like to be a kid again…and who doesn’t want that.”
