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.

Re: “Rosé’s comeback continues

Love an article about rosé! It is my go-to drink of the summer. My new favorite that I recently found is called Maison Marcel. It is light and refreshing and perfect for summer. Check it out at

Re: “Station is a hip little restaurant and bar in Bloomfield

I love station. the bartender always has great recommendations for both food and awesome drinks. it is a great place to grab two forks and share each dish with a friend. I enjoy the variety of ingredients -- each bite makes you pause and enjoy the flavors to come. kind of like an everlasting gobstopper!

Re: “Ice is an overlooked but all-important cocktail ingredient

Negronis are served over ice that is supposed to melt as you drink it. The dilution is supposed to make the Negroni taste even better!

Just a fun fact.

Re: “The Summit, on Pittsburgh’s Mount Washington, hews to the gastropub spirit

Do Scarpaci's next! Wednesday is wing night, and standup comedy starts at 10pm. The wings are great and the beer is nearly free. Plus I can smoke in between wings without having to go outside.
