Biking, Incline, Tacos, Hills, Tacos – My Taco Tuesday in Pittsburgh

Biking, Incline, Tacos, Hills, Tacos – My Taco Tuesday in Pittsburgh

Inclined To Get Tacos During Pittsburgh’s Heat Wave Last Tuesday towards the end of Pittsburgh’s heat wave, I ventured out on my bicycle during the 89 degree day. Since my car was unavailable that morning, I figured it would be prime time (minus the heat) to finally take my bike on the incline. Since I am still new to the roads on Mount Washington, I figure the safest way to get to the Cultural District would be to take the…

Bachelorette Party Tacos at Pirata in Downtown Pittsburgh

Bachelorette Party Tacos at Pirata in Downtown Pittsburgh

Weekend of Tacos All Over Pittsburgh Last weekend I managed to get tacos twice during two exciting events. First, were tacos at The Pittsburgh Zoo and Aquarium’s Zoobrew on Friday, while checking out the animals and sampling some beer. Second was at Pirata for a bachelorette party dinner on Saturday. This post will cover the Pirata tacos since the Pittsburgh Zoo tacos were a pleasant, but infrequent, treat there. However, the tacos at Pirata are here to stay. For the…

The Pittsburgh Regatta and All Star Tacos at Casa Reyna

The Pittsburgh Regatta and All Star Tacos at Casa Reyna

A Packed Pittsburgh Weekend: Work, Regatta, Bike and Tacos!   A few weekends ago, during all the Pittsburgh Regatta festivities, I had to do my time and work the weekend. Not only did I have to be at work by 6:30am on a Saturday, but I had to get up even earlier than usual to load my bicycle in my car while most other yinzers were snuggled up in bed, or having the worst drunk sleep ever from a Friday…

Taco Tuesday in Pittsburgh replaces Wing Night in Dormont A few weeks ago when the standard crew could not make it to Jamison’s wing night, I took the opportunity to visit another spot that has a taco Tuesday special. I first discovered James Street Gastropub & Speakeasy had tacos when I went there for drinks prior to attending the Incline’s Ultimate Food Truck Bracket Contest to support and try Las Chicas tacos (which I have been craving lately). Listed on…

Helping out Pittsburgh Tacos in The Incline’s Ultimate Food Truck Bracket!

Helping out Pittsburgh Tacos in The Incline’s Ultimate Food Truck Bracket!

Pittsburgh online news site The Incline really got my attention lately with their Ultimate Pittsburgh Food Truck Bracket, pitting food trucks from around the area in a NCAA style, reader voted competition.  Obviously, the bracket dedicated entirely to tacos is what REALLY got my attention. The Final Four in the bracket came down to Southside BBQ, Las Chicas, Hott Dawgz and Sugar and Spice Ice Cream Truck. To make the final four voting more interesting, The Incline also held a small…

Pints, Pens, Pints on Penn, All You Can Eat Tacos in Pittsburgh!

Pints, Pens, Pints on Penn, All You Can Eat Tacos in Pittsburgh!

Last Tuesday night right before the Penguins versus Senators game during game 6 the Eastern Conference Finals, a group of us decided we should fuel up on tacos to get us ready for the big game. Now I usually go with the group to Jamison’s on West Liberty in Dormont for FREE wings with beer every Tuesday, but once in awhile we will switch it up for tacos. It is unfortunate this wing special falls on #TacoTuesdays, but I make up…

New Tacos from Columbus to Pittsburgh at Condado Taqueria

New Tacos from Columbus to Pittsburgh at Condado Taqueria

Although I missed the free tacos at the grand opening of Condado Taqueria in the Cultural District of Pittsburgh on March 14th this year, I knew I had to visit soon.  There has been a lot of build up for this new restaurant, along with quite the following in Columbus, OH, where they have two other locations. I had a few friends of mine who already rave about this place, specifically for the reasonable prices and unbelievable queso so I…

Tres Rios Tacos along the Tres Rios of Pittsburgh

Tres Rios Tacos along the Tres Rios of Pittsburgh

During my week of transitioning jobs, I had some free time to catch up with some friends in Pittsburgh. Before the $1 taco night at Patron Mexican Grill on Monday, I went to Tres Rios for lunch.  I went with my friend Will, who I used to work with at Kennywood. We loved working in the rides department and have many memories together working the Thunderbolt and Raging Rapids. Anyway, Tres Rios (named for Pittsburgh’s three rivers) is located on…

Taco Tuesday? More Like Taco Twosday in Pittsburgh!

Taco Tuesday? More Like Taco Twosday in Pittsburgh!

Last Tuesday, I had the day off from work after seeing the epic Penguins game against the Capitals that included 8 TOTAL goals (6 of them Pens!) and Malkin pulling off a hat trick ALL in one period. Since Nate and I did not have time to get tacos before the Pens game, or during (side note: across from our seats we saw the täkō sign! Tacos! At the game!  However, if you follow us on Twitter and Facebook you’ll…

Tacos, Gingerbread Houses, and…Guns?

Tacos, Gingerbread Houses, and…Guns?

Ending 2016 with Guns, Gingerbread Houses and Fancy Tacos  First, the guns… Last Thursday, I had so much planned on my day off and it started with handguns.  I learned how to properly and safely handle a 9mm Glock 26 and a .380 Ruger LCP, then set off to A&S Indoor Pistol Range in Youngwood.  I never had any experience with guns, so learning about how they work and how they feel when in action was very new to me.  Also,…
