What You Should Never Eat- But Tastes Great!

Sometimes you are hungry
for something that is just not good for you.
And you eat it.

And regret doing so.

Or not!

Wednesday nights I take a class at Manchester Craftsmen’s and eat an early dinner on the South Side, driving down the slopes from Arlington.   The last two weeks it was Carson Street Deli sandwiches but then I started thinking French fries. Undoing all the work at the gym yesterday.

So I crossed at 16th St and went into Mario’s, the only patron at that off hour but not for long.  Cory was hosting and tending bar and took my order for an Alpine burger (don’t ask) and their house cut fries. A tall ginger ale.      I asked if I could photograph the stained glass windows.  Designed by Williams Stained Glass of Bethel Park. It was a good time to photograph the architectural details.  Woshner’s was once “haberdashery” and is now Mario’s.  I was too early for Karaoke night. Had to get to class.

  1. What a tribute to the sports scene-their impressive collection of stain glass. Another example of the community’s devotion to all things Pittsburgh. I am mailing this to our retired friends near St. Louis that work on stained glass gifts for friends.

  2. I want to go just to see those windows! Oh yeah, I sabotage my hard work exercising almost everyday, so don’t you worry about a thing.

  3. Protein is good for rebuilding your muscles. I looked up their menu; the Alpine burger looks good!

  4. What a great place! Including the burger!!!
    Loved the photos of the beautiful old ceiling and the table/chairs in the front window!!

Thanks for your visit. It's always good to hear you stopped by.
