House of 1000 Beers and 4 tacos.

House of 1000 Beers and 4 tacos.

In the beginning of January, I met my friend Steve at House of 1000 Beers for beers and tacos (a dynamic duo). This was my first visit to a House of 1000 Beers. They have two locations, one in New Kensington and the other in Warrendale. I made sure to clarify which one we were going to meet at since I am known for showing up at the wrong bar or location quite often. For instance, La Palapa in Southside…

First Tacos of the New Year at La Poblanita.

First Tacos of the New Year at La Poblanita.

Not even two full days into the new year I had my first 2019 taco. I picked a place off my PGH taco list that was recommended to me by several friends for its authenticity and overall high quality of tacos. I had this place marked in my notes for months and I couldn’t think of a better time to try them than at the start of the new year. I took my friend Dan, who was also off of…

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…

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…

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…

I’m Staying at the Franklin Innnn….all the tacos lovers are invited innnn.

After my Saint Patrick’s day adventure in Philly, I went back to getting tacos in the Burgh.  My initial taco partner in crime, Michelle, has been dying to take me to a place that she really likes in the North Hills.  Michelle has been tagged in almost every visit at Patron Mexican Grill (see my favorite dollar taco blog post here!)  and she shares a heavy love for tacos too.  I was very excited to meet her, Andy (her husband),…

Expanding my fancy taco horizons at Carmella’s Plates and Pints

Expanding my fancy taco horizons at Carmella’s Plates and Pints

Last Tuesday after another 12.5 hour OR shift, I once again changed out of my scrubs quickly and made my way to my old stomping grounds in Southside.   Tuesday night can typically be a very good night for tacos thanks to alliteration (taco Tuesday!), so I was excited to hit up a place that I’ve been meaning to check out for awhile.  I had Carmella’s Plates and Pints in mind located at 1908 East Carson Street. I met my friend…
