Re: “Conflict Kitchen’s latest menu features North American cuisine with Haudenosaunee offerings

"The conflict might not be “current” in the same sense as the others"

It looks current out at Standing Rock...

Re: “The antidote to Pittsburgh’s highfalutin’ food-scene: Frankie’s Extra Long

Frankie's was there when Lawrenceville was still the stomping grounds for prostitutes and ne'er do wells, when every corner had pee-stained mattresses and every fifth window was broken.

Ah yes, those were the days!

Re: “Troy Hill’s Pear & The Pickle combines a coffee shop with sandwiches and a small general store

Love this place, and everything about it. I grew up going to this place when it was Huling's corner store. We used to buy penny candy from Vi's to enjoy with family/friends and neighbors while watching 8mm (I'm showing my age. Lol) movies outside in our yard that my dad borrowed from his work at Pittsburgh BPOE.
I'm so happy that a lot of the antique charm remains present in the space, right down to my childhood pal Barney's name carved into the woodwork! He even got a sandwich named after him!!!
I cant wait for the rooftop garden!!!

I still have contact through social media with Lynn who is related to Viola Hulings!!!!
I especially love that Alexis and Bobby are our neighbors!!! AWESOME PEOPLE!!!!!

Re: “Stop by the Dari-Villa, in Bellevue, for fresh potato pancakes

Potato pancakes are a Hannukah food and more importantly, flour is not kosher for Passover... but these do sound like they'd be good (in a few more days)!

Re: “Kip’s Ice Cream in Coraopolis focuses on fresh ingredients

If it's on Thorn Run Road it's in Moon Township - especially in this case - WAAYYYY into Moon Township. Just because it's in the 15108 doesn't mean it's in Coraopolis. I was all excited thinking that there was a new ice cream place in downtown Cory. Please learn your municipalities.

Re: “Eden Foods tries to opt out of Obamacare birth-control coverage

It is the height of inane selfishness when US consumers believe they have a right to control every aspect of a business owner's personal beliefs and social activism. These people become the bigots they accuse others of being by demanding everyone should be just like they are. Diversity and tolerance means this: you don't have to love everything about someone to support the good things they do. Yes, by all means, let's try to drive a good company out of business because you don't agree with the owner's stance on birth control. Eden is not forcing their employees to think like they do or denying them the right to use birth control. They just don't want to pay for something they don't believe in. If you do, fine, pay for it yourself. Is that morally outrageous? Of course not!

The biggest culprit is the author of this article. Accusing Eden Foods of being one of the companies that "'actively oppose implementation' of health-care reform"--what does asking employees to buy their own contraception have to do with health-care reform?!! The true irony of this badly written "news" article is the author fails to even state WHY Eden's CEO has taken his stance in the first place. He makes allowances for religion but fails to disclose that Eden's decision was religious based. Remember when journalists at least tried to be objective and pursue truth rather than propagate their own political propaganda? Chris Potter--not in danger of being mistaken for one of those people.

Re: “Pittsburgh food scene is currently awesome, but there are still some niches to be filled

Pittsburgh Ice Cream Co. Is now serving absinthe, raspberry sage sorbet, honey and blue cheese, salted goat caramel, juniper berry with gin soaked cranberries ice cream +more, so not "ridiculously fancy" but interesting and delicious. Plus its made with ingredients from local farms and if you come to our shop it's not expensive.

Re: “Los Campos Mexican Grocery supplies food staples, plus tamales on Sundays

It's a little bizarre an owner of a Mexican grocery store would drive all the way to cleveland for tamales. Regardless, the place in cleveland is more than likely La Plaza in Lakewood. It is an amazing place, a grocery store with a pawn shop in the middle of the store.
