Spindrift isn't alcoholic.
Editor's note: Thanks, we've made the changes.
A lovely little place. Thanks Bob!
Nice little piece, Celine, on a nice little place, isn't it?
Long Live the Rebellion!!!
Nice piece, Drew!
What this commonwealth needs is legislative reform. That way I can buy my brandy from Cogo's.
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.
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.
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 www.drinkmarcel.com
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.
What? No mention of Harris Grill in Shadyside and Shiloh Grill in Mt. Washington? TUESDAY IS BACON NIGHT! They give FREE bacon away at the bar! Free bacon, woman! FREE BACON!
Yeah I've been there that place before it's really nice inside. I definitely wouldn't call it bro-chic and also i'm pretty sure that isn't a word. sigh. I guess good journalists are hard to find.
What does "bro-chic" mean?
That would be great! We've enjoyed visiting the Mt. Lebanon Hitchhiker location, but we're on the South Side more often than we're in Mt. Leb.
In my view, craft cocktails and innovative American/fusion cuisine fit right into Pittsburgh's deeper roots, specifically the "Golden Era" Pittsburgh which generated great wealth, and also attracted ethnically-diverse immigrants, and created great fine art, and great pop art, and so on.
I agree not every drink in this town should cost $10 or more. But I think Pittsburgh is blossoming in this era in part because there really is a natural fit between Pittsburgh and the ever-growing number of people who are now craving cultural connection to history and stability blended with humanism and optimism, all loosely covered by words like "authentic," and in fact words like "craft" and "innovative."
The opening of Damon Runyon's short story "Dancing Dan's Christmas":
"NOW one time it comes on Christmas, and in fact it is the evening before Christmas, and I am in Good Time Charley Bernstein's little speakeasy in West Forty-seventh Street, wishing Charley a Merry Christmas and having a few hot Tom and Jerrys with him.
This hot Tom and Jerry is an old time drink that is once used by one and all in this country to celebrate Christmas with, and in fact it is once so popular that many people think Christmas is invented only to furnish an excuse for hot Tom and Jerry, although of course this is by no means true...."
A great Christmas story, and a great Christmas drink.
Sounds great & can't wait to try it. But I was wondering why this recipe calls for butter. Is this version specific to where Lardinois grew up?
a true gem of our town
Congratulations to the Larkins! They deserve all the success they are having.
Elevating Pittsburgh to be classier than a Batman at Jacks. Hush now haters
