Stuff We Like 

Wilson's BBQ

Wilson's B-B-Q. This unprepossessing, family-owned storefront has been serving great wood-fired barbecue (mostly take-out, though there's a table inside) for more than a half-century. The ribs are savory, the chicken is tender, and don't forget the sides: The potato salad ranks among the best in town. 700 N. Taylor Ave., North Side. 412-322-7427

How to Build a Girl

How to Build a Girl. In early 1990s Britain, a lumpy working-class teenage girl from the sticks re-invents herself as a sharp-tongued music critic and "Lady Sex Adventurer," in Caitlin Moran's funny and insightful coming-of-age novel

Industrial-themed grave markers. Allegheny Cemetery, Lawrenceville.

Happy Valley six-episode British crime series

Happy Valley. This six-episode British crime series is set in gloomy Yorkshire, in a former industrial town now plagued with drugs and shiftless types. Depicts police work from a rare perspective, that of a tough-but-sensitive middle-aged woman juggling the twin stresses of being a cop and tending to her dysfunctional family. On Netflix.

The Climbing Wall

The Climbing Wall. Cooler temperatures don't mean the end of recreational activity. For more than 20 years, this facility with 14,000 square feet of climbing has provided indoor access to rock-climbing. 7501 Penn Ave., North Point Breeze.

If you music

If You. Near-perfect traditional country songs from the godfather of modern honky-tonk, Dale Watson. Recorded at Sun Studios, in Memphis, all six cuts — from "Sayonara Sucka" to "I'll See You Never" — deal with that time-honored country-music tradition of telling someone to fuck off
