What size clutch and purse am I allowed to have for the concert coming up in Buffalo?

One of the biggest questions that we get every concert coming to Buffalo is "what am I allowed to bring"? Ladies always want to know what size purse they can bring in. Make sure that you know the rules before you get to the security gate. You know what happens if it is too big. There always ends up being a massive garbage bin full of expensive purses and clutches.

Here are the rules for each stadium and arena in Western New York, per their websites.
