The new Buffalo Wings & Rings location at 68th and O streets will open Nov. 1.

I happened to be out near 70th and O streets yesterday, and the new Buffalo Wings & Rings caught my eye.

Specifically, what caught my eye was the fact that it's almost finished. A sign on the door says it will open Nov. 1 at 11 a.m.

I'm told that Buffalo Wings & Rings actually wanted to open its second location this month, but the fact that Garth Brooks will be having five concerts at Pinnacle Bank Arena Oct. 20-22 means its location in the Railyard will be slammed, and it wouldn't have had enough experienced employees to adequately staff both locations.
