Tonight Sports Q TV will be at City Slickers filming their sports-center-style show! It's your chance to meet your favorite Buffalo Bills players and as many as 30 players could be there. The party starts at 9:30 p.m. and includes two djs -- DJ Macy Paradise and DJ Konda. The event is for ages 18+ to party, 21+ to drink and sponsored by Mancuso Limo and The Batavian.

Bills gear is encouraged and the restaurant will be open at 4 p.m. for dinner. Due to contractual agreements, player names can't be announced, however several rookies and starters are expected to be in attendance. 

City Slickers has also posted a flier on www.facebook.com/cityslickersbar, which can be printed out and for every flier turned in during the event, $2 will be donated to the Sheldon family in Bergen. Derek Sheldon was killed in Le Roy yesterday in a motorcycle accident.

High Voltage Tattoo has added an additional tattoo booth and another artist.

In response to increasing business, we at High Voltage Tattoo and Piercing have added another tattoo booth and hired another artist. For most of 2013 all of the tattoo artists at the shop have been booked in advance with appointments, so we have rarely been able to accommodate walk-ins. Hopefully with an additional new workspace and another tattoo artist, we will be able to get more walk-ins into a chair.

Jeremy is the latest artist to join the High Voltage crew. Jeremy tattooed in Buffalo for six years and has recently moved to Batavia. We now have five people working full time to better meet the needs of our customers.

High Voltage Tattoo is Genesee County's longest established tattoo and piercing shop. We blend old-school values with modern safety standards. Our tattoo artists create custom artwork, coverups or they can bring your own sketches to life. Our studio is a sanctuary of creative self-expression and we uphold a zero-attitude policy. Each client is treated with integrity and respect.

We are open 7 days a week, so stop in for a new tattoo or piercing or call (585) 201-1127 to book an appointment. Visit us online: http://www.hvolttattoo.com/

Each of the past two Monday's I've posted a simple message: When you join The Batavian Club, you are helping to support your favorite local news site. The simple message has been working. People have been joining.

The Batavian is blessed with strong support from the local business community, but advertising is only a portion of the revenue any local news organization needs to grow and provide well-rounded local news coverage.

That's not just true of an online news site like The Batavian. It's true of any local news organization. 

A newspaper garners very important reader support by dropping a physical product on your doorstep or driveway. You pay for the product and delivery. Since we don't have a physical product to deliver to your home, we offer you a package of gift certificates to local businesses in exchange for your support.

Think of a membership in The Batavian Club as a voluntary subscription for all the great news you get online from The Batavian.

So, please use the options below and join today.

TO JOIN: Use PayPal buttons below, or to pay by check (annual only) or credit card, click here to download form. Or call (585) 250-4118 to pay by credit card.

We've set up four membership tiers -- Subscribe to the club monthly as one person or as a household, or annually at either of those levels. 

Members receive a membership card, bumper sticker and a package of gift certificates to local businesses. 

It's important to note, this isn't a subscription to read the site. Our stories remain free to read. This is a voluntary subscription with benefits (and we'll add benefits as it grows).

Join via PayPal below, or for annual and one-time memberships paid by check, click here to download this form (monthly, recurring payment memberships must be via PayPal or credit card.) To pay by credit card, use the form, or call (585) 250-4118.

Monthly Single Membership - $5 per month

Vinyl Sticks welcomes Adam Lowder as their New Graphic Designer!

If you have had a sign or vinyl graphics professionally created in the Batavia area within the last 15 years, odds are pretty good that you have worked with Adam Lowder. Adam has been working with patrons in Western New York, creating signs, banners, magnets, and vehicle layouts since 1999. With familiarity of all aspects in the sign and vinyl graphics’ field, and a true passion for this line of work, Adam is ready to assist you.

“Here at Vinyl Sticks, no project is too big or too small,” Adam explains. “Whether you are looking for a small sign to stick in your yard, a few window stickers to promote your organization, or to do a complete vinyl wrap on your company van, Vinyl Sticks will do the job right. We have the ability to take any vehicle and turn it into a driving billboard.”

Adam joins Joe Bradt at Vinyl Sticks, who has been the head of operations since the company opened in October of 2012. Joe is a third-generation sign craftsman. Growing up around his grandfather’s and father’s sign businesses, Joe adds plenty of years of experience to Vinyl Sticks.

Vinyl Sticks is a company for everybody, not just businesses. Although they do create a lot of yard signs for businesses to advertise their services, and specialize in vehicle designs, big and small, they also make every day birthday banners, welcome-home banners, campsite signs, car decals, stickers and much more.

"At Vinyl Sticks we are using state-of-the-art printers and software to create stunning graphics.  We use a wide-format printer which allows us to print directly onto a variety of media surfaces, such as banners and vehicle wraps. We have graphics that allow you to advertise on glass, while still being able to see out of the glass.

"We have graphics that can turn your silver truck into a pink or camouflage truck. Graphics that allow you to advertise on walls, on the floor, and even on brick walls, and because we are creating the graphics ourselves, it is very cost-effective. Our prices are very competitive.”

Vinyl Sticks offers free estimates, free consultation, and of course design, production and installation services. Feel free to visit Adam and Joe at Vinyl Sticks, located at 23 Ganson Ave. in Batavia, NY. Off of Route 63, turn onto Evans Street; go past the Falleti Ice Arena, and at the stop sign go straight onto Ganson Avenue. Vinyl Sticks will be on your right.

You may also contact Adam or Joe by calling: 585-300-4307 or 877-456-4755.

"Please feel free to contact us with any questions. Send us your thoughts, ideas, and artwork and we will gladly provide you with an estimate and answer any questions you may have. Please visit www.VinylSticks.com for more information!”

During the Oatka Festival, we had a booth set up and were signing up new members for The Batavian Club. Thanks to all who joined. It's a big help.

Six people told us they wanted to join, but didn't have money or a credit card with them and a couple of people said explicitly they would rather join through PayPal. This post, as much as anything, is for them.

To be clear about why we're doing The Batavian Club. This isn't about selling discounts to businesses, though we do that, it's about reaching out to the people who read The Batavian every day and appreciate what we do, to make a small contribution to help us build a sustainable business. Advertising alone is not enough. We need reader support. Think of this as a voluntary subscription for all the great news you get online from The Batavian.
