After dinner you can head over to Holidays Sports Bar and Volleyball to burn off some of those calories. Situated at 935 Harlem Road, this club offers an assortment of beer and liquor - in addition to year-round volleyball games and parties.

Dubbed "The Land of the Crabapples," or "Ji-ik-do-wah-gah" by the Seneca tribe, who lived here in the 1700s, Cheektowaga takes its name from the apple-like fruit of the Hawthorn trees that grow freely in the area. Originally a small farming community, Cheektowaga expanded rapidly during World War II and the post-war baby boom, drawing many blue-collar workers from nearby Buffalo. As the number of families grew, the population swelled to over 100,000, and school districts sprung up across the town. One of these was Maryvale. Like neighboring Buffalo, Cheektowaga has a rich history, and many historical buildings in the town, such as the 1853 church, Our Lady Help of Christians Chapel, still stand. The Cheektowaga Historical Association preserves and displays the works of local artists and the many artifacts that have been collected since the town's inception at the Historical Association Museum in town.
