I love that National Geographic Travel, while naming us as one of their must-see world destinations in 2012, identified Pittsburgh as being a city with a “quirky sense of humor.”
Now, there’s a bad kind of quirky, i.e. obsessive eating of couch cushions, and there’s a good kind of quirky, i.e. taking 47 pictures of a doorknob. I think the names of the coffee concoctions at Nicholas Coffee and Tea Roasters in Market Square, where I like to order the pumpkin latte on cold winter days, can be classified as the good kind of quirky.

Because who hasn’t ever looked into a sweater-clad pug’s eyeballs and said, “Mmmm. JUICY!”
