Tony is Bon Journey. No need to waste your time and money going to see the other "original" version. The other guys have burned bridges with almost every musican bar owner in the area tring to make the RT version of Bon journey look like idiots. Well my money says go where the talent is and that is RT's Bon Journey. At least they play the songs right.

Dear Jason Roth,
Have you ever eaten Italian food anywhere else but Del's? That is the only way I could understand you picking them for best Italian food in Pittsburgh. There food is frozen for months and sometimes years then microwaved. Barely any of it is homemade. It's overcooked and under sauced. They try to make up for the lack of flavor with large portions. None of there desserts are homemade and all come in from places like Sam's Club even the cannoli and tiramusi. There soups, especially the chicken corn chowder, are a mix of all the old ingredients they can throw together.
Del's is the Denny's of Italian food at best.
I would not recommend it to anyone.
You are right! One thing is that TONY the singer and RICH the guitarist are no longer with the other group. They are starting their own tribute to Bon Jovi and Journey...if you would like to continue to see them please go to: www.myspace.com/bon_journey amd see where they are playing...keep in mind that the other Bon Journey is still out there. Thanks for your comments and support!
This band is absolutely the best cover band I've ever seen. I happened upon them when going to a sports bar I was interested in possibly purchasing and was there to check out what type of crowds they drew from there live entertainment. When I walked in it was standing room only. I mean you was lucky to find somewhere to stand. It was packed shoulder to shoulder. When the band came on I had worked my way up closer to the stage. After only two Journey songs I could not believe how good this band was. Tony the lead singer was incredible. If I closed my eyes I would have thought I was listening to Steve Perry live. I did not know there name so I asked the woman standing next to me if she knew the name of the band and come to find out she was Tony the lead singers girlfriend. During the bands break she introduced me to Tony and Jeff. I have went back to see them 3 times and they are addicting. The best part is that the crowds they draw range in age from 21 to 60. Its amazing what stage presence and carma that Tony has with the crowd and the band is full of talented musicians. If you are a owner of a club this is a band you will want to book on a regular basis. They will pack your place every time guaranteed.
It's ashamed that this place isn't like that anymore.
I am so surprised by the comments of the previous postings. I absolutely love dozen. My brother introduced me to their cupcakes when I moved to Pittsburgh and I was hooked instantly. I now call myself a regular. My friend and I go once a week to sit and chat and eat cupcakes. The flavors are absolutely fantastic. My favorite is the Milk Chocolate, or maybe it's the Copacabana with the mango frosting. My husband loves the Elvis! They have two locations (one on Murray Ave in Squirrel Hill and one on Butler in Lawrenceville). Both are divine and the service is wonderful. They even give their leftovers to community organizations at the end of the day. Don't listen to the nay sayers...go try it for yourself. I guarantee you'll get hooked, and soon be looking at the calorie counter on the tread mill thinking, "oh that's another half a cupcake that I can eat today ;).
I am glad that they changed their policy to not discriminate based on sexual orientation but no one can make them change their stance on offering benefits. If they don't want to that's fine. I don't agree with it but they answer to the Catholic church.
how old do you have to be to get into gravity nightclub?
Pamela's is an institution that is integral to the fabric of Pittsburgh. I am in DC, and when I mention Pittsburgh and breakfast, Pamela's is invariably the name that comes to mind.
I love everything they do...the best and worth the trip from South Side
Some concert details weren't available or announced by press time. You can now find the county concerts schedule here:
I'm doing a report on the PPG building and I was wonderring if you could send me some imformation on the PPG building by tommorrow.
Wiz is awesome. Straight out of Pitts, his freestyles have been on point and hes getting some radioplay with Say Yeah. I will be on the lookout for him!
Wiz out of Pitts is awesome. His freestyles are smooth and Say Yeah is gettin good airplay on the radios. Im going to watch out for him comin up.
Way overpriced. The atmosphere isn't the least bit interesting. Just got ripped off for $13 and change for one bear and one Scotch and soda with a bar brand. I will never go back, and can't imagine why anyone would pay these outrageous prices for a place with no special atmosphere and bitch(y) bartenders.
I have been practicing yoga for some years and have had my first experience at Amazing Yoga this year. Yes, the heat is a new experience, but this is what makes Amazing Yoga unique! I welcome the assistance from the instructors, especially in poses...if I am doing a pose incorrectly, I would want to know how to correct it.
I find the staff at the Wexford studio to be very kind and helpful and as with any yoga studio, one must always remember that "this is YOUR yoga practice" and one can always stop at anytime.
I love the challenge of Amazing Yoga, it keeps my practice fresh. I've been back and will continue to attend the classes there...as my practice in yoga deepens.
Oh the disappointment. I beg of you, Mr. Gray at dozencupcakes, please find a way to make your cupcakes moist (or at least the Key Lime and Milk Chocolate because I only tried those two flavors). I had high hopes for a delicious eating experience. And it didn't bother me to pay 5 dollars for two average sized cupcakes, but that was before I tasted them. "Cheaper than NYC" you say? Hell, if these cupcakes were as good as the ingredients (Imported Belgian chocolate, Neilsen-Massey vanilla and real butter), I would've gladly paid twice that much. But alas, these cupcakes were a huge disappointment. They were the driest cupcakes I've ever eaten.
The frosting was good. It might have been more than good but I'll never really know because the dryness of the cake completely threw me off. And I used to be a frosting girl. I used to not care so much about the cake. I was all about the frosting, until now. I see this as a lesson learned. I can't fully appreciate something until its missing. Now, I fully appreciate how important the cake part is in the cupcake experience.
Ohhhh..I read the review above and thought it must be someone with a personal gripe, with all those sales! I just tried these cupcakes for the first time, and let's just say...I am building a new house and am looking for something more solid and more dry than bricks, and I think I found it!!! Does anyone ever come back a second time?
