Fiftieth Post! Let’s celebrate with a giveaway and list!

Yep, it’s our fiftieth post. Feels like just yesterday we were squabbling over a blog name, finding pictures of forks, figuring out what the heck we might write about. Ah, those were simpler times. We’d drive the ol’ jallopey to the local hootenany, a community picnic or barbecue, then have  the local artist sketch pictures of our food. Then we’d type out our criticisms of the local farmer’s wife’s apple pie (too crumbly, woman!) and, using a homemade printing press, we’d deliver copies of our newsletter to our reluctant neighbors who believed us to be Commies.

Yes, we’ve come a long way since those dusty dirt roads and ink-stained newsletters. We’re riding fast on the information highway, and nothing is going to stop us now!

To thank the few of you who read us on a regular basis (and the few of you who read us semi-regularly, and the many who have only dropped in for a post or two), I’m announcing the Fifty Post Celebratory Giveaway: Simply post a comment below with your favorite eating place in Pittsburgh (or one of your favorites, you lovely gluttons) and your email address, and I will pick a winner at random.

The winner will receive a dozen homemade cookies and assorted useless trinkets from Dot’s Dollar Store (cheerfull provider of lottery tickets and ugly mugs to the Mt. Lebanon area). I will announce the winner on Monday, November 22.

Also, for our fiftieth post, I thought we’d cobble together a list of our fifty favorite eating spots in Pittsburgh. These are not ranked, just an assorted collection of fifty restaurants (and take-out stands and street -vendors) in Pittsburgh worth giving a try.

  1. howdy!
    great blog! i’ve just started my own vegan blog, and i know it’s gonna be awhile before i reach 50! Congrats! I live in San Diego, so i can’t quite participate in yer contest of favorite restaurants in Pittsburgh, but here in SD, my favorite is my local taco shop! Huge veggie burrito with a whole wheat tortilla, black beans, garlicky potatoes, and the most devine avocado verde salsa! yummeh!
    Keep up the good bloggery! xoxo from SD!

  2. I have lots of places that I like . . .but since you are a veggie blogger, I will say the Double Wide Grill on the South Side. Just ate there last weekend and my daughter had the most delicious coconut tofu dish. I had a grilled veggie salad and it was pretty good, too. And it was warm enough to eat outside. What a treat!

  3. Favorite place… can it be places? Wild Rosemary, Casbah, Bocktown, Aladdins, Piccolo Forno…

  4. My favorite place to grab a quick bite is the bright red Pad Thai Express cart on Bigelow Boulevard in Oakland. I love their pineapple tofu curry. YummmmMMMMmmmm….
