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…

Heavenly Pittsburgh Tacos at Taco Diablo in Mt Lebanon

Heavenly Pittsburgh Tacos at Taco Diablo in Mt Lebanon

Last week in the midst of a very busy time getting ready for two back-to-back out of state weekend trips to New York and Ohio, I needed some quick and healthy dinners to get me through the chaos.  When I think of fast service tacos my mind defaults to Las Palmas, Edgar’s Best Tacos, Doce Taqueria, Bea Taco Town, and El Burro. However, time and location are important factors to consider too (especially around rush hour). Since I was planning…

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…

Taco Travels Again – To New England and NYC!

Taco Travels Again – To New England and NYC!

Over the Fourth of July weekend, Nate and I took a 7 hour drive to Connecticut.  Now I was under the impression that the drive would be hideously longer than that, but our destination was in Norwalk, CT, very close to New York City.  In fact, from the beach in Norwalk, we could just see Long Island in the distance. We went to the specific town of Norwalk because Nate lived there for 3 years post graduation from college. We…

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…

Going Over the Bar in Pittsburgh for Taco Tuesday

Going Over the Bar in Pittsburgh for Taco Tuesday

Taco Troubles Two Tuesdays ago took an unexpected turn after I was done training at West Penn Hospital in Bloomfield. After finishing the in class and online new hire courses, I was planning to get a late taco lunch in Lawrenceville, the neighborhood next door. Since I was in the area during the day I figured it would be a great time to try out Smoke.  I have heard wonderful things about their meats, and I didn’t want to attempt…

Tacos, Music and a Trip Dahn South of Pittsburgh

Tacos, Music and a Trip Dahn South of Pittsburgh

Two Fridays ago, Nate and I went to see our friend Chris play in his band, The Weathered Road.  We have seen the band play multiple times and love their music. This time they were performing in Morgantown, West Virginia for the weekend.  I have only been to Morgantown once before when I was scoping out colleges. I heard Morgantown was a great place to visit and I was looking forward to taking a Friday evening trip to Black Bear Burritos to jam out…

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…

Hitchhiking for Tacos in Pittsburgh

Hitchhiking for Tacos in Pittsburgh

I have now been to Hitchhiker Brewing Company more than most of my friends that live in the South Hills, and I do not even live close to there. I love this place! I discovered my favorite beer of all time here, Yeoman, a fresh hopped IPA brewed right here by Hitchhiker.  The fresh hops put into this American Pale Ale came from a hop farm near Slippery Rock and it really knocked my socks off! Hitchhiker Brewing is where I also…

Pittsburgh Tacos on New Years!

Pittsburgh Tacos on New Years!

Last tacos of 2016 at Round Corner Cantina New Years Eve of 2016 turned out to be one of my favorites of all time. I woke up Saturday morning without any plans made for the day. The only thing I knew was that I would be having leftovers for lunch and tacos somewhere for dinner. After watching a few episodes of Parks and Recreation, I pulled out a list of breweries around the Pittsburgh area that I wanted to try. As soon as I…
