Re: “Baja Bar and Grill

My wife and I had stumbled upon this place while boating. Great bar and place to grab an afternoon bite! Highly recommend.

Re: “Max's Allegheny Tavern

Love it. Simple German food. Nice variety of German beers. Very affordable. Don't forget to go to the old bar in the cellar.

Re: “Drinks Bar

When is the owner going to wake up and realize his bartender is driving his business away? No one wants to watch the bartender nod of from her dope high all night long. Half the time she's not even behind the bar. She's either outside on the phone trying to score dope, sitting at the bar nodding off, in the back kitchen or in the bathroom, but she sure as hell isn't behind the bar being a bartender. I've walked in and sat there for a good 10 to 15 minutes and she is too busy texting to serve me so I walk out and go to Danny's. And if I'm not watching her high as can be I get to watch Keith sit there watching his porn on his phone... the pgh papers back pages website. He thinks he's sneaky but come on dude! Watch that shit in the privacy of your own home!

Re: “Affordable-housing advocates to boycott Pittsburgh’s Whole Foods

HEY UHH, IF YOU CANT AFFORD TO LIVE SOMEWHERE, YOU MOVE. ITS NOT THE GOVERNMENTS RESPONSIBILITY TO PROVIDE FOR PEOPLE WHO CANT SUPPORT THEMSELVES. SO I THINK IT IS PERFECTLY FINE TO DISPLACE PEOPLE WHO CANT SUPPORT THEMSELVES, AND BRING IN A COMPANY WHO BRINGS JOBS, QUALITY FOOD, AND TAXES TO THE LOCAL AREA. YOU WOULD RATHER TAX PAYERS SUPPORT THE PEOPLE IN THOSE COMPLEXES, THAN HAVE THE STORE THERE PAYING TAXES TO THE COMMUNITY, YOU MUST BE AN HRC SUPPORTER.

Re: “Affordable-housing advocates to boycott Pittsburgh’s Whole Foods

There are programs offered to anyone with good credit to buy a house with little money down in PA. Look into PHFA keystone home loans with 4% assistance.

Not everyone gets to live where they want. I wish I could afford the west coast, but I can't. So live where I can afford.

Both of these dudes fully support your 2nd Amendment right to hunt. And they fully support your right to use a fully semi-automatic piece while hunting.

Re: “Affordable-housing advocates to boycott Pittsburgh’s Whole Foods

"Pittsburgh was just ranked as the LEAST EXPENSIVE urban metro area to buy a house. I don't see the loss of one housing unit to renovations to be that great a sin."

What an incredibly ignorant statement. Many of the residents of Penn Plaza were senior citizens who had lived in East Liberty all of their lives. Do you know how much it costs to buy a house in East Liberty right now? You can't spit on one for less than $250,000, and that'll only buy you a run down dump that needs another $100,000 worth of work. Even at cheaper price points, the major roadblock for most people is the down payment. Buying a house is not an option for most people who work minimum wage jobs or are on a fixed income, but screw them right?! Send them to food deserts where there's no public transportation, because Whole Foods needs better parking for people who buy $7 asparagus water.

Re: “Lynn Cullen Live 08/16/16

Again, in many states, disclosure of such information as Ms. Kaine disclosed, would have been LEGAL. She would have been doing her job in disclosing the email correspondence that occurred on our dime when the email contained bigoted joking, etc. and was email from a judge. Isn't that really why she's been sh**-canned? Come on. This was a good-ole-boy witch-hunt. Ms. Kaine got her law license revoked because of disclosure of stuff by a judge who should step down. Why isn't the judge whose emails were inappropriate, offensive, and obviously prejudiced, undergoing judicial review.

Re: “Lynn Cullen Live 08/16/16

The Repubiican Senator who was convicted of several felonies and sentenced to ten years in jail is already out of jail. Jane Orey. Why don't you know the names of these people?!? Don't you have Google? By the way, Senator Jane Orey's sister - a JUDGE - was also guilty of several felonies. I still really would like to know why the former Governor, who was also a State Attorney for many years, got away with sitting on his hands on the Sandusky matter. Why isn't there any outrage over THAT. Sandusky contributed to Tom Corbett's campaign, and for years sexually abused young boys who were poor. Why no pursuit of that matter. And yet you're saying "Shame on her" for a woman who disclosed information information that should have been open to the public in the first place. In other states, there are laws that prohibit concealment of such information. Why do you have a radio show when you are not intellectually curious about what's going on in your state? Why aren't you talking about Tom Corbett.

Re: “Lynn Cullen Live 08/16/16

And yet nothing was done about Tom Corbett's relationship with Sandusky. Care to explain that one?

Re: “Florence Foster Jenkins

It is both alarming and heart-rending to recognize what we've morphed into over the last several decades. TV shows soliciting cheap laughs by ridiculing those of us who might be somewhat different or eccentric or even a bit self-deluded now abound. Think Two and A Half Men, or The Big Bang Theory or American Idol for starters. The sort of programming devoted to, as you say, "openly mocking the deluded and talentless."

Yet you have no difficulty praising a film devoted to precisely that sort of thing, someone's idea of a "delightful comedy" based on the very very sad story of pathetic Florence Foster Jenkins, an easily manipulated innocent, cruelly mocked by the sort of people who'd probably have enthusiastically cheered at those Roman festivals where Christians were fed to the lions. I'm sorry but I have no desire to watch such a spectacle. I've heard recordings of her singing and it's no worse than what comes out of the mouths of the great majority of would be "rock stars" of our own era. What a heartless, bitter and cruel society we've become.

Re: “A proposed highway cap won’t help the Lower Hill

In spite of all of the critiques and pessimism of the author and commentators, I think it will be nice to have the gash in the middle of the city covered. Glad that the city was smart enough to put together a credible proposal for the $19 million.

Re: “A proposed highway cap won’t help the Lower Hill

Cheese and rice, look into this project a little deeper.

Housing is irrelevant to this project because it is federally funded through a TIGER grant, which comes through the Dept. of Transportation specifically for transit projects. This cap project has been an idea for years and the DOT didn't initially see it relevant as a transit project at first; it took several years of applications by state representatives to coherence agreement.

It is not just a slab of concrete. The proposal will build up terra and support vegetation in a highly exposed, hot and uncomfortable link between Uptown, the Hill, and Downtown.

The 28-acres "someday, maybe" will be developed; wouldn't creating physical access, outdoor congregation space, preformative space, and commercial space that bridges the largest obstruction to existing vibrance create a more inciting and commercially viable prospect for the Lower Hill? Developmental energy will come from Downtown toward the Hill, regardless of how ideal it seems to be in the inverse.

And FYI: it's LaQuatra Bonci Associates and Walter Hood is a landscape architect, not an architect.

Re: “A proposed highway cap won’t help the Lower Hill

Clear-eyed analysis beats blind Chamber-of-Commerce cheerleading every time. And let's not forget all of the Hill District connections to Uptown (the Fifth/Forbes corridor). Knitting together those two neighborhoods would be a boost to both Oakland and Downtown.
