Where Patrick Kane was seen in Western New York last weekend
Tweets, Facebook posts and witness accounts paint a picture of what Patrick Kane's weekend was like.
The 26-year-old star player of the Chicago Blackhawks was seen enjoying a round of golf at Brierwood Country Club in Hamburg on Saturday afternoon.
"When you pass Patrick Kane at briarwood golf…" a young man posted on Twitter.
"Nice round of golf with @88PKane," another person Tweeted, along with a photo of himself with Kane and a reference to Kane's Twitter handle.
Saturday evening and night, Kane was seen at several locations in downtown Buffalo.
One Twitter user posted at 8:45 p.m. that she saw him at Tappo, a trendy Italian eatery on Ellicott Street.
He was seen around midnight at City Tavern on Chippewa Street, a witness told The News.
He was also seen, according to social media accounts, at SkyBar, a rooftop bar on Franklin Street.
The bar's Facebook account posted a photo Monday of Kane, with the bar's owner, developer Mark Croce, and the Delaware District's new common councilman, Joel Feroleto.
"Patrick Kane stopped by SkyBar past wknd! Mark told him to bring the Stanley Cup back with him this upcoming Saturday … We think we convinced him," the bar's Facebook account also posted.
Kane had been expected to bring the Stanley Cup to Buffalo this weekend as part of the Blackhawks' victory celebration.
In an odd coincidence, the wife of Kane's lawyer, defense attorney Paul Cambria, posted a photo of herself, her husband and another couple at what appears to be SkyBar.
"Hey … Pat Kane in da house!" she wrote.
Cambria represented Kane six years ago when he was accused of assaulting a taxicab driver. Kane ended up pleading guilty to a noncriminal violation. The News reached out to Cambria on Wednesday and Thursday, but he would not talk about any aspect of the investigation of Kane.
Other Twitter posts painted a picture of Kane enjoying himself early Sunday. It couldn't be determined where or exactly what time these tweets were referencing.
"I kissed Patrick Kane," one woman boasted.
"Patrick Kane bought me a birthday shot last night," one man wrote.
On Twitter, one man said that Kane "told me he was too bombed for a pic, so of course I snapchatted a pic of him anyway," he said. Snapchat is a social media site where posts appear just for a few seconds.
Sunday night, a worker posted on Twitter that Kane came into Anderson's Frozen Custard on Sheridan Avenue in the Town of Tonawanda. She wrote that she and someone else blew a kiss to him as he drove away.
A customer tweeted: "the day I wear my pajamas to Anderson's Patrick Kane is there!!!!"
The customer, a 37-year-old Tonawanda woman, later said in a phone interview with The News that Kane was at Anderson's between 9:30 and 10 p.m. with three or four young women.
Dressed casually in shorts and a T-shirt, it seemed few people realized who he was, the woman told The News. He looked up when she blurted out his name, she said.
Kane seemed to be spending most of his time looking at his smartphone, she said.
