I’m back from North Carolina and what age do you suppose it is that we switch from “Ugh. Home from the beach and back to real life. [sadface]” to “HOME! My own bed! [fist pump!]”? I think it’s 35-years and three bags of Werthers.
A lot has happened while I was away. The Freeh report. The Paterno statue taken down. The Aurora tragedy. The NCAA sanctions. THE PITTSBURGH PIRATES. YOUR PITTSBURGH PIRATES. If you’re not on my bandwagon drinking lustily from the margarita fountain while waving a beer soaked jolly roger while randomly sports-butt-slapping people’s asses, then you’re obviously just a stubborn jagoff.
And speaking of jagoffs, you must go see what David Shribman, the P-G’s biggest kahuna, did after I took him to task for banning the word jagoff from paper.
And now, here’s one last guest post, this one by the four incredibly gorgeous local ladies of EatPGH.com, and I’m not just saying that. Scroll down for the picture that proves it.
Oh hey, Pittsburgh!
There is a new book coming to town all about you. OK, OK. Not you exactly. (Unless you are a delicious sandwich… in which case, we’d like to meet you.) This book is all about the gastronomic delights of your super city!
We, ladies of the blog eatPGH.com, have written a book: The Food Lovers’ Guide to Pittsburgh, published by Globe Pequot Press.
Set to hit bookstore shelves on September 4, 2012, the book will feature:
- Over 200 restaurants reviews in almost every nook and cranny of Pittsburgh, the ‘burbs and beyond!
- A detailed list of popular food and culinary events by month!
- 14 sidebars about topics like the “Pittsburgh Must-Eat Cheat Sheet” and how to “Ship Pittsburgh to You!”
- 12 recipes from local chefs at restaurants, such as Meat & Potatoes, Braddock’s American Brassiere, e2, and more!
Be sure to follow the eatPGH blog for more details about the book and how we plan to celebrate its release (hint: so. many. parties.).
