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: “Check out The Abbey on Butler Street, in Pittsburgh’s trendy Lawrenceville

The Abbey's Smoky Provolone Burger is amazing... I dream about this burger in between visits.

Re: “Check out The Abbey on Butler Street, in Pittsburgh’s trendy Lawrenceville

I mean, the place is fine - better than most of what Lawrenceville has been regurgitating lately. These descriptions, though, are wildly exaggerated and inaccurate.

Re: “Check out The Abbey on Butler Street, in Pittsburgh’s trendy Lawrenceville

Deeply Old World atmosphere? Iconoclastic? Pittsburgh's newly hip clientele?

Huh?

Nah.

Re: “Celebrate the Solstice with Chilled Blueberry Soup

Recipe looks lovely....but personally I'd recommend getting your inner druid on Stonehenge at the winter solstice rather than the summer one. Less busy, more druid-y :)

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: “Pennsylvania liquor stores offer more than meets the eye

What this commonwealth needs is legislative reform. That way I can buy my brandy from Cogo's.

Re: “Chillegal Kitchen

All music credits go to Reid Magette who was kind enough to share the song for this episode.

Re: “Pennsylvania liquor stores offer more than meets the eye

However, if there is a libation you just can’t live without, a trip to New Jersey is the way to go.

Fixed it for you.

Yes, the PLCB can't stock more items when they need 10 facings of Vladimir vodka and 4 feet worth of Franzia Chard in every store.

Re: “City Paper’s food-and-drink section has undergone some changes

Great idea. We've moved from Pgh but read this weekly and always make notes for visits back, which always include checking out the latest restaurant, bar, brewery, etc. So, the more intel the better.
