Spicy Tacos and a Heated Cornhole Competition at Social

Spicy Tacos and a Heated Cornhole Competition at Social

At the end of October, Jason invited me to watch his playoff game in the PSL Cornhole League hosted at Social.  Social is located in Bakery Square at 6425 Penn Ave, which is an area that I do not venture to that often.   A minor side note, but I played one season of PSL Cornhole a long time ago, back when Double Wide Grill held the league in Southside.  Once I realized how competitive it really was, I sort of…

Giant Effing Tacos at Cafe Nikos

Giant Effing Tacos at Cafe Nikos

On a surprisingly warm Taco Tuesday night in the Burgh, I made my way to Cafe Nikos dressed in a Pens t-shirt and a little black sweater.  I had Nikos on my PGH taco list for quite sometime after having read their 2 tacos for $3 weekly special listed on the banner outside the bar months ago.  I recruited a fellow Mount Washington resident and friend, Jason, for a taco filled night at Nikos located at 212 Shiloh St up…

Steel City’s Steel Cactus for National Taco Day

Steel City’s Steel Cactus for National Taco Day

This year, heavy rain attempted to take over some of my favorite taco centered events like the Pittsburgh Taco Festival, Cinco de Mayo, and National Taco Day.  It has not failed to make an appearance at each one of these occasions.  On Thursday October 4th, for National Taco Day, it rained like crazy.   Heavy downpours and floods led to many road closures in the South Hills.  As a result, my Frisbee game was cancelled.   A few of my league friends…

Pacific Northwest Battle #2: Neon Taco vs. Tacos Chukis

Pacific Northwest Battle #2: Neon Taco vs. Tacos Chukis

After Alexis, Hillary, and I traveled through Portland and Mount Rainier in our green Subaru Forester rental car (we looked like we were in an ongoing Subaru commercial while cruising along the lush mountains and amazing overlooks), we made it to Seattle for Labor Day weekend.  After a late night of exploring a speakeasy, an arcade bar in Belltown, and a random house party south of the city, we were off to a late start Saturday morning.  However, like any…

Pacific Northwest Battle #1: Uno Mas or Por Qué No?

Pacific Northwest Battle #1: Uno Mas or Por Qué No?

At the end of August, I took an extensive trip to the Pacific Northwest.  The 11 day vacation included a long weekend in Napa Valley for a friend’s bachelorette party with my college crew followed directly with a trip to Portland and Seattle with my grade school buddies.  Since I knew I would not have many opportunities for tacos in Napa, I saved all my taco explorations for Portland and Seattle with my grade school friends.  How lucky were they?!…

Celebrating Pittsburgh’s Restaurant Week with tacos from Coughlin’s Law Kitchen and Ale House

Celebrating Pittsburgh’s Restaurant Week with tacos from Coughlin’s Law Kitchen and Ale House

After back to back weekends of Ultimate Frisbee Tournaments, I finally had a weekend free for Pittsburgh tacos.  Lucky for me, the weekend I had open happened to be a part of Pittsburgh’s Restaurant Week.  In the past, I would try to make an effort to make it to a few of the restaurants partaking in the event to expand my Pittsburgh foodie bubble.  However, the hardest part for me is remembering which week the event falls.  This time, my aunt…

It’s Taco Tiiiiiiiiime in the Jersey Shore.

It’s Taco Tiiiiiiiiime in the Jersey Shore.

At the end of July, I attended my first Wildwood Ultimate Frisbee Tournament in Wildwood, New Jersey.  With over 400 teams and 5,000 players, it was the biggest frisbee tournament I ever attended. My team may not have done so great, but at least we had awesome jerseys!   Our team consisted of players from the Ultimate Frisbee Casual league in South Park, Pa.  We were the Wedge Salads. The name originated from the South Park Clubhouse menu item called the…

Vacation tacos at Redfin Blues.

Vacation tacos at Redfin Blues.

As you may know by now, I like to ride my bicycle on the random days off I get during the week.  I use this time to meet up with friends for lunch downtown, hit the gym, work on my blog, and sometimes grab a drink before returning home.  One place in particular I like to venture for a post lunch beverage is Redfin Blues located right in Washington’s Landing Marina at 100 Waterfront Drive.  My favorite time to come for…

Voodoo tacos cast a spell on me.

Voodoo tacos cast a spell on me.

A few weeks ago, I had the unusual treat of a free Thursday afternoon so I took advantage of this by biking with my friend, Sean.  Typically, my Thursday nights are reserved for my Ultimate Frisbee league, but this week the league was on a temporary on hold between seasons.  With only one Thursday evening to spare before summer Frisbee commenced, Sean and I decided to make our way to Voodoo Brewery by bicycle. I introduced Sean to a wonderful…
