Here are some links/articles/blog posts that are worth a look:
- Sausalido – Modern European Food in Bloomfield – 4 Stars from Local Yelpers – Pittsburgh, PA – Yelp is a website where anyone can submit reviews about food, shopping services – local Yelpers agree that Sausalido – located on Liberty Ave in Bloomfield – is worth a visit.
- Final approval given for rezoning: $90M One Grandview hotel/condo clears another hurdle – Big news for Mt. Washington – a new hotel will be coming soon to the space next to the incline.
- The New Orleans Saints: A Benediction – Here is a blog post from a friend who is from New Orleans, but now lives in Brooklyn. Nick's post got me thinking about football and fans and cities and places – can football lift up a city? From the blog post, "Which is to say: we’re not really the kind of people who care about football. And excuse that “we” if you care deeply; you know what I mean. But, for a lot of New Orleanians this Saint’s thing isn’t really about football. It’s about Katrina and vindication and not losing" – I know, very well from recent travels – that the there is a strong Steeler nation out there. I have often wondered if there is any other team that evokes that kind of passion and friendship that black and gold jersey's and a terrible towel can create. I hope the Saints can be for the residents of New Orleans, what the Steelers have been for Pittsburghers near and far.
