Roman Bistro   Pittsburgh s BEST Bistro   Pittsburgh s BEST NEW RESTAURANT   When In Roman s  Do as the ROMAN S DO

1.I’m on a low-carb diet since my return from Mexico AKA EAT ALL THE THINGSICO, so today I ate 10 cookies.

As one does when one is on a low-carb diet.

Tomorrow I’ll probably eat a half dozen donuts.

I’m really good at dieting.

2. God bless Munch at the P-G for finding that Roman Bistro in Forest Hills has an absolute over-the-top, ear shattering, Spongebob-esque website.

Just … shhh.

And don’t get me started on the apostrophes and quotation marks.

3. Sid almost choked to death on a cheese stick.

Does he need mouth-to-mouth, do you know?

4. Tim McGraw kissed a local woman’s bald head and awwwww and LOOK AT HIS GUNS, YOU GUYS.

I don’t think I’ve ever used this word on this blog in my, what, eight years of blogging, but DAY-UM.

5. Plum High School, of the famous Pens lipdubs, is ready to cut their TV Production Program. 

They have lost their DAY-UM minds.

6. This is the truthiest thing ever:

God bless you, Ian Richards of Sewickley for creating this.

God bless you.

7. The Republican nominee for Pittsburgh Mayor, Josh Wander, is a doomsday prepper with a PREPPER license plate and an appearance on Doomsday Preppers in which we get to see his whole family shooting guns and shit.

Doomsday prepping is the new face tattoos.

8. WHY?

9. I put this on my Twitter, Facebook and Instagram, but if you missed it, how my local Dairy Queen spells Iginla:

igenla

10. While we’re talking Instagram, my favorite Friends episode was on this week, so I had to mark it:

Chandler

PIVOT.

11. Can Burghers go too far in their love of our city?

Yes, they can. When they refuse to acknowledge its flaws.

A snippet of my latest Pittsburgh Magazine column:

We must not allow ourselves to become blind to Pittsburgh’s flaws; that’s no healthier than a parent ignoring the shortcomings of a child. Spend a decade coddling little Suzie, never addressing her faults, letting her get away with everything, becoming angry when anyone dares to criticize her — and before you know it, you’re bailing 16-year-old “Suze” out of juvie for using her 4-inch stiletto to go Bad Girls Club on a classmate who insulted her ombre dye job.

My original text said “ombre dye job as ‘Yinzery.'”

Go have a read, and then be sure to read the comments. Always a good time in the comments.

    So…OK…the Pirates are on a roll like never since 1992, the Penguins are in the conference finals with Jagr coming in and more story lines than a library shelf, and nothing on That’s Church about any of it. So here’s my question: who are you really, lady, and what have you done with Virginia Montanez?
