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.
