Well, she's a Pirates fan. Last time we went to see the Giants play the Pirates I bought the tickets, so naturally we sat two rows behind the Giants dugout. This time she paid and she got seats right behind the Pirates dugout. I'll say this, though. Yinzers are very nice people. There was just good natured kidding by the Pirates fans about the Giants gear I was wearing.

Lori got a steak salad; the confusion with the hamburger salad was because we'd previously discussed the hamburger salad.
 
The steak salad was fabulous; I actually enjoyed the steak on her salad more than the steak at the Pine Club.

Here is Michael's burger cut in half, showing off the juiciness. 
 

I think Pittsburgh might've moved to the top of my ballpark bucket list!

Definitely Brad. I love PNC Park, especially since the Brewers always win there. The location is in a great urban setting.

I'm looking forward to trying the pierogies, especially the asphalt ones that Bob Uecker's fond of.

Ralph, thanks for straightening out the hamburger salad vs the steak salad thing.  I get confused easily now in my old age!

Old age?  Where does that leave me??  You were just too busy taking pictures.  But if that was a "steak salad" where were the fries?  Everybody knows the steak salad was "invented" at the Hilltop in Rochester, PA and always comes with fries!  Sheesh..........folks in W.PA put fries on everything!

Thanks everyone for your nice comments on my first trip report.  I started out doing it as one entire report and in the middle of it.....POOF....it was all gone.  A quick text to bb asking for help resulted in him suggesting to me to do it in smaller segments.  The 'Burgh is a great city and we always enjoy going there!

As I think I told you, my mother was born and raised in the East Liberty section of Pittsburgh. She met my father when he was going to Carnegie Tech. I can't think of a better tour guide than you when I'm finally able to go to Pittsburgh!

Speaking of "how they met"......my mother was a dance teacher in the evenings at Arthur Murray Studios in Pgh...........my father was one of her students! 
About the tour guide to Pittsburgh.....I've been gone for a long time and I'm sure buffetbuster and Ralph Melton are much more qualified than I am!!!

Yes--the POOF factor!!!  I expect every trip reporter has suffered from it...

Thank you, Chef Lee; your first 'trip report' is a definite A+!
 
(I'm suddenly tired of Texas; I want to go home - at least for Summers)!

Again, thank you all for the nice comments.  It was fun for me to show off my home town.  The POOF factor was not so fun.....but now I know better!

If you go back to the 'Burgh I will buy you an entire Augustine's pizza!

Wow!  I live very close to Tessaro's & get food there frequently.  I have never strayed from my beloved bacon/bleu cheese burger but after eyeing that steak salad, I may have to change my order.  A big thanks!

Lisa, great report and pics, that Bloody Mary has my name on it as did every other food item. June 15th we will have to be at 150% here, the camera doesn't lie!

Great report, but stay for a few extra days so you can go to Oram's Donuts in Beaver Falls, Mineos Pizza in Squirrel Hill, Enrico Biscotti in the Strip and other wonderful Yinzer places.

We have been to Oram's Donuts many times!  (I'm from Rochester.)  I have had Enrico Biscotti......just not this trip.  I have not made it to Mineos.  We will be in Younzerville (Beaver Countians say younz) on Friday, lunch probably at Brady's Run Grille and dinner at Back Door Tavern, hopefully with Buffetbuster.  The hardest part about going back to W. PA is deciding where to eat!!!

Oh, yeah. Oram's donuts are great. Granted, the only donuts I eat are plain ones, but if your basic plain donut isn't great, well ... .

I love the glazed......light and airy, nice and yeasty and not too sweet.  We may have to stop there Saturday AM on the way to Gettysburg.

We did stop there Saturday morning.  We both had a plain cake donut.  I opted for something simple as I was still full from dinner the night before at the Back Door Tavern!  It was every bit as good as the glazed!
