Bob’s making his second trip to Primanti Bros. right now, so I’m filling in.
We had a good night. August Henry’s, followed by Primanti’s, then Roland’s where my college roommate and her fiance met us (and everyone danced. Yes, danced.), then Tonic. Then the ‘Zos and I came back to the hotel and Bob and Dan hit Primanti’s for late night eats.
There WILL be pictures. I took a bunch already. Cross fingers on my camera battery lasting me through tomorrow.
Off to bed. Check you kids later.
Welcome. You have no idea what you’ve gotten yourself into. You’ve just happened upon the first post of the BoFlog, a web log, if you will, co-written by Sara Bozich and Bob Flounders recounting our trip to Pittsburgh.
We’re both writers for the P-N, and I really wanted to pitch this as a viable story/blog/column idea, but Bob wouldn’t help me out. Instead, the Internet will have to serve as the main venue.
I’m here first, so I get to do this. Flounders had to golf today, so he and his other partner-in-crime, The Danimal, won’t be here for a while.
We’re staying at the Westin, where I have a view of the train station (which brings back memories of college commutes for me).
While waiting for the boyz, the ‘Zos and I are going to go around the corner to August Henry’s to toast the weekend with a little brew and wait for our golfing friends to join us.
Next post should come from Flounders.
I’m planning a big post (or possible column) on hot dogs, as they’ve become my summer staple for quick and delicious nourishment. However, I would like to give a shout-out to PD’s, which began serving fresh pretzel dogs outside of Dee & Deb’s a few weeks ago.
If you’ve ever had an Auntie Anne’s pretzel dog, these are 10 times better (I think because the hot dogs used at PD’s are Hebrew National). I dip in cheese, or you can try the mustard for a quarter.
They’re on the strip every Thursday through Saturday night from 10 p.m. to 3 a.m. Dogs are 2 for $5 or $3 for one.
If you didn’t catch it in this week’s column, Skewers opened next to Ceoltas on July 5, serving a variety of Middle Eastern food. Open for lunch and dinner, kebabs available late night on the weekends until 3 a.m.
