  • Politics: POG members protest Ravenstahl inauguration

    After the Pittsburgh Organizing Group announced plans to march outside the inauguration in protest, the police turned out in full force for the event. Upwards of 60 officers were dispatched to the Dec. 20 event at the Carnegie Music Hall. The POG contingent numbered only 15, and there was roughly one officer for every protester. The group marched without incident down Forbes Avenue to the front of the Carnegie auditorium where they were greeted by a contingent of officers.

  • The Taste of New Orleans Cafe

    On a Main Street that most Pittsburghers never see, you can find a neon streetcar and The Taste of New Orleans Café. The menu is simple, focused on the classics of Creole cuisine: fried chicken, pork chops, jambalaya, gumbo and rice. Half of the twin storefront is dedicated to takeout, with a few tables in the bright red-and-green-painted space on the other side. Laurel Turner told us that many customers arrive for takeout, but stay to enjoy the hospitality, and we don't doubt her for a minute.
