From Pittsburgh to a Taco Heaven – Austin, TX Part 1

From Pittsburgh to a Taco Heaven – Austin, TX Part 1

As I sit here in my kitchen with two long sleeve shirts on, long pants, and fuzzy socks, I think back two weeks ago to my glorious trip to Austin where I was waking up to 70 degree weather each day.  I did not have to pack or even think about pants or fuzzy socks down there. I just had to plan where I wanted to get tacos for lunch and what I wanted to explore while in Austin with…

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 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…

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…

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,…

Back to Pittsburgh Tacos at Totopo!

Back to Pittsburgh Tacos at Totopo!

Totopo Tacos! Last week, I chose to try out Totopo on 660 Washington Road, Pittsburgh in Mount Lebanon’s uptown area after hearing fantastic reviews from friends.  I had never heard of Totopo before, and I had no idea what to expect.  I didn’t ask friends what was good or not at Totopo, I just went in cold (but of course leaning towards tacos!).  Now, after my first visit I have so much to share with you guys and I don’t…

Colorful leaves, fun bike ride and Las Palmas TACOS!

Colorful leaves, fun bike ride and Las Palmas TACOS!

Last Wednesday, I had the day off from work.  With the temperature in the mid 70s, I thought it would be a good idea to take the bicycle out on the trail to see the colorful fall leaves.  Since I would be biking in the city Thursday I decided the Montour Trail would be the trail to explore that day, and the trip was of course planned around finishing the day at Las Palmas in Brookline. (note: that link takes…
