Re: “Rivers Casino workers continue fight for union

All of these union minded idiots need to take a hike, the rivers is a great place to work with awesome benefits. Part time means part time if you dont like it apply for full time or go get another job

Re: “Point of Law: Do 'safe passing' regulations really make it safer for cyclists if they're not enforced?

Looks like I was right; a Bike Pittsburgh representative was on KDKA this morning stating bicycle riders are required to adhere to traffic laws. If motor vehicles and bike riders follow the laws and respect each other, we will all be much safer. I would like to see it mandatory to see bike riders wear safety equipment, allows drivers see them and in case they fall off. No bike riding in the middle of the lane and dont sneak up on a vehicle just as its turning right. Hard to stay 4 ft from the rider if the rider closes distance on the vehicle.

Re: “Judah Friedlander is among the headliners at the inaugural Pittsburgh Comedy Festival

@Bill Scott thanks for the clarification. We have been calling this "Pittsburgh's first festival of stand up AND improvisational comedy." It often does get covered as the first festival. WDVE has a stand up festival every year and there has been at least one festival of local improv groups. We give credit to pgh's long comedy history on our site. I think the community has changed in the past few years, making the time right to put pgh comedy in the spotlight in a big way.

Re: “The Oddball Comedy Festival returns

Super disappointed that most of the tour headliners are skipping the Pittsburgh date (at least all the ones *I* would pay to see). Did we say something to offend Louis and his pals? Can Dave Chappelle put in a good word in for us?

Re: “Pittsburgh Thai Restaurant by Boris

An excellent epicurian experience in a charming part of town. It is so worth trying, as you will look forward to making it a regular to your lunch or dining destinations.

In an abruptly changing climate, complete with extreme precipitation events, near the water and on old fill is the last place you'd want to be.

Re: “Point of Law: Do 'safe passing' regulations really make it safer for cyclists if they're not enforced?

Many unenforceable laws are respected because they are advertised and because people see that they make sense. Whether a car obeys the law to the letter and gives a 4' clearance, or just gives a 2-3' clearance is not the issue. The issue is that the motorist knows he must give adequate clearance, and that he will be presumed to be at fault if he sideswipes a cyclist. The problem with this law is that nobody knows about it.

Bike lanes are often the most dangerous places for cyclists to travel in. The Liberty Avenue door-zone bike lane is absolutely deadly. A cyclist can easily travel the 35 mph speed limit down this lane, and if a door opens from a parked car he hits it at the same speed as if he had fallen off a 3-story building.

Moreover, he is less visible to cross traffic and to oncoming traffic that wants to turn than if he had been in the middle of the lane. The law is a good law. If Bike Pittsburgh put as much energy into advertizing this law as they put into advocating deadly bike lanes, cyclists would be a lot safer.

Re: “Point of Law: Do 'safe passing' regulations really make it safer for cyclists if they're not enforced?

Dave makes a good point. Everyone knows this is a law that cannot be enforced (same as the cell phone texting law). Please explain to me how a vehicle is going to keep a 4' distance with a bicycle rider when the bicycle rider does not have a designated lane (other the bike lane). More often than not, bicycle riders ride in the middle of a lane. The law should require bike riders to stay to the far right, no weaving in and out of traffic, stop for stop signs and red lights, etc. Bicycle riders have to have some responsibility when riding on roads. Heck, lets go all the way, bring back horse and buggies on the road - they have the same rights to vehicles & bicycles right?

Re: “Southern Hospitality

I went to visit this restaurant last night based on the CP review as well as others on the net. My experience was so unbelievably bad that I can't understand how anyone would continue to patronize such a deplorable restaurant. We showed up right around 8 PM - ample time to receive our food and eat before the 9 PM closing time. There was another couple sitting in the booth behind us who arrived a short time after us. The very nice lady who was our server waited on the table behind us but didn't take our orders for another 10 minutes or so. The fact that they were out of just about everything they advertise on their menu should have been my first clue that this was not going to be a good experience. When she finally brought us our glasses of Countrytyme Lemonade (I saw the container on the counter), she took our food orders and vanished for another 50 minutes. Imagine our surprise when a gentleman arrived at our table with our food in to-go containers and informed us that they were closing and that we needed to leave. The other table had received their food and were eating - they were not asked to leave, however. We were not being disruptive nor did we complain about the long wait for service. We were just sitting at the table chatting. We were so shocked at the fact that the restaurant gave us our food to-go that we paid and left. When we got home, we discovered that the food was barely edible - particularly the fish which was fishy and overcooked. The disgustingly sweet beans and yams tasted like they came out of a can. There was no bread despite the fact that the menu said that the meal came with bread. The menu says that they have chicken breasts, but, in reality, all they serve are wings. The wings were OK but I think that they were frozen Costco wings. The only part of the meal that was remotely edible was the macaroni and cheese. I will NEVER go back here again and I will spread the word among my friends, as well. I never hope for a restaurant to close but, based on my experience last night, this one certainly deserves to close.

Re: “Point of Law: Do 'safe passing' regulations really make it safer for cyclists if they're not enforced?

The problem is that it's not advertized. A new law like that needs to be disseminated to the public, and nobody has heard of it other than cyclists.

Too much energy in promoting deadly bike lanes (like the downhill door-zone lane on Liberty Avenue) detracts from promoting more sensible measures.
