Pittsburgh Signature Sandwich

There aren’t many places open on Sunday night, late. You’re headed home and stop in to get their #2 Best Seller -To Go. Vinegary Coleslaw and Fries right in between the thick slices of Italian bread.

Primanti Bros. In The Strip District

I took a few pictures while Steve was inside getting the sandwich.  We split one. It’s sufficient.

Pittsburgh Light Up Night 2007

I was looking for a Throwback Thursday photo and found this black and white shot of the city at night. Light Up Night is in November, the Friday before Thanksgiving and you can see the effort to light up the city with every available watt. I’m pretty sure I could take a better image now so will try to retake this coming November 2019.

Saturday Night at The Oaks Theater

Saturday night at the Oaks Theater in Oakmont, PA,

Steve and I went to see Groundhog Day (1993).

My friend Vincie said I’d really enjoy seeing it on the big screen and she was right. She told me how wonderful it was when she saw Casablanca in the theater compared to viewing on TV.

We sat in the front row with plenty of leg room and weren’t too close to the screen as there’s the stage between us. There was even a beer tasting happening in the front when we arrived. And a bar and food available, too.  Great audience reaction to seeing the skyline of Pittsburgh in the opening credits.  We had a fun night.

Filmed in Woodstock Illinois, my sister and I visited a few years ago on our way back from Rockford. You can see the house used as the bed and breakfast where Bill Murray stayed in the film  in this post from five years ago.

 

My Plan to Get Gas Thwarted

I was headed out of town early in the morning. Figured I’d fill the tank before I hit the interstate. This is what I found at the station where I planned to gas up. Who knew the place was changing hands/ brands?

Not a gas pump in sight.

Underground Parking Garages Make One Wary

Underground Parking Garages Make One Wary. Six word Saturday.

Too many movies spark one’s imagination. Especially at night.

If it’s standing on end, do let me know.

Maura Texted a Night Pic

Granddaughter Maura (just turned ten) texted me a night photo of a Christmas house. For the blog!

Last night, after Steve and I grabbed a bite, we drove through a neighborhood in search of a few more photos to add to Maura’s.

It’s dark so early now as we approach that shortest day of light.

Here’s the house in Columbus Ohio that Maura sent.

Thanks for the good idea, Maura. What a lot of colorful decorations!

Below are a few Pittsburgh houses, mostly taken from the car except for the snowy animals. I had to get out.
