I'd try to make that one!
Maybe a tour of the Iron City Brewery included?
Are they still making Clark Bars in da Burgh? 
A trip to da Burgh is not complete without attending a church sponsored Fish Fry
OR one at the Moose, Eagles, Elks or the VFW, American Legion, or Volunteer Firemen's Hall!
There is no other region in the country where you will find as many fund raising fish fry's than Western Pennsylvania

And a plus if it includes potato pancakes, haluski and homemade pirogue's!
 


Answers, we have answers....
 
That would be great!
That is certainly a possibility
Unfortunately, no
Since lent would be long gone, the best of that ilk is the Italian Club in Muse, right outside Canonsburg.  I can just imagine a group photo outside the borough building with the singing Perry Como statue.  Unfortunately, the Polish Prince Bobby Vinton, also a native of Canonsburg, doesn't have a statue.

Re: Pittsburgh Crawl 2015/05/10 13:18:53 (permalink)
Maybe it is selfishness, but I would never want the Roadfood Bus Tour to come to Pittsburgh.  That's because I love to travel and would much rather see what they have in other cities.  After all, I already know what we have here.  And my feelings about hosting one of these crawls was along the same lines.
 
Ralph, Lori and I were discussing the ideal of having it in Pittsburgh while we were at Burt's Place.  As I was telling them my reservations, they made an excellent point.  If there is one sure fire place here that we could build the tour around it would be the Jozsa Corner.  This is a Hungarian restaurant, where there is no menu, you are just given large plates and bowls of Eastern European comfort food to share family style.   You will be eating whatever owner Alex feels like making that night.  It is set in an old house and although the place can hold up to about 40 people, you really feel more like you are dining in his living room than you are in a restaurant.  The food is outstanding, the atmosphere casual and familiar.  Trust me when I say out of towners will be charmed by the place, as much as us locals are.  In other words, it would be a dream location to hold a dinner for one of these Roadfood get togethers.  Anyway, as Ralph and Lori pointed out, Alex is well into his 70's and although we haven't seen much in the way of him slowing down, you just never know.  After thinking about this some more, I am now completely on board for having it in Pittsburgh.  It is better we do Pittsburgh sooner than later.  If you want to know more about Jozsa Corner, here is Ralph's Roadfood review, the review from the PG, the website and a thread from my first visit years ago.
 
I do agree with Buddy that it is too early to make a decision.  It's not like we can check next year's baseball schedule or anyone can make flight reservations for it right now.  My plan was to make a case to the board sometime in the fall, after discussions with Ralph, Lori and Lisa and plenty of in person research.  (In fact, I visited a place yesterday called Cop Out Pierogies that is owned by a Shaler Twp. sheriff who sells his own homemade pierogies.  Their motto, "It's not a party 'til the cops show up!")  But, the response so far has been wonderful to see and the credit for that goes to the people who have ran and organized the Cincy and Chicago crawls.  If the group does decide Pittsburgh, we have a lot to live up to, but between the four of us, I think we can run a crawl worthy of it's predecessors.

Sir, for your side, would you prefer green bread or the black bananas?

I didn't know there was a Mike Ditka shrine in Aliquippa, but trust me, you don't want to go to Aliquippa!

Well if there isn't one there certainly should be!
 
Unlike all those namby-pamby QBs from western PA, Mike Ditka was a real football player!!

Joe Montana and Joe Namath to name two famous ones.  We also had basketball star Pete Maravich from Aliquippa.

We're not gonna tell you until the last minute.  Like that you'll have to pay full rate like the rest of us.

Thanks for the compliments about the cincy crawl.
 
As CTD and BRH now know, it is at times overwhelming, but fun to plan and share your city with a group of friends.  So BB, Da 'Burgh sounds like a wonderful place to be the first weekend in May 2016.
 
Hopefully my health will be stable enough to attend this one and the fall tour in LA) (already checking on DaVita dialysis centers nearby)

I think we need to stick a fork in it and call it done. Pittsburgh in 2016 or bust.

The current rate at Chateau de Buffetbuster is only $10.00 a night, based on quadruple occupancy.  You don't mind sharing a room with Cousin Johnny, ChiTownDiner and Wanderingjew, do you?

Without even trying (I think), this is turning into a tour of the NL Central Division. That narrows the choices for the 2017 event.

I have long thought that St. Louis would be a fantastic choice for a food tour.  As for Milwaukee, too bad we don't know anyone from there.

There's gotta be some churches that have Fish Fry's other than just during Lent aren't there?
I know the Catholic churches in my home town , St. Marys, PA, Home of Straub Beer, www.straubbeer.com have them almost year 'round, except maybe Summer months.

I have been away from the 'Burgh for so long, that it all sounds so new to me...  And my summer schedule this year is stealing at least 3 bucket list items from this year, I just might be ready to see things with fresh eyes next summer, God willing...  Ten years ago, I vowed to go to Canton when The Bus gets inducted - - but, my granddaughter is getting married in August, and guests are staying over....  Then, I have a granddaughter graduating from college this coming Saturday, and my grandson's HS graduation on the 31st - - their combined parties will be in June....  Pre-season football schedule is announced, so the Packer at Pittsburgh game is intriguing, but the timing is bad - - shoot - - two bucket list items shot down - a replay of SB XLV and a home Heinz Field game...  My 55th HS reunion is the Saturday of Labor Day Weekend, and the Panthers are playing at Heinz the Thursday before, so that might work, but who wants to see the Panthers, and I cry all Labor Day Weekend no matter where I am at the time, but it would be exponentially worse to be near North Park on pool closing day - - this has thrown me into deep depression for a couple of weeks each September, and I don't know if I can handle it at all...  Plus, my younger daughter, my traveling buddy has had 3 serious surgeries in the last 3 months and her, hopefully last, surgery is set up for early June and her ability to travel may be compromised, so who knows?????   A trip - Summer 2016 - just might work......  Whenever I get there, a trip to Jozsas is a must on my list.... We shall see...  I am living day to day right now...  Sigh.....  Every time I have tried to pencil in a date on my calendar for the next few months it has been shot down....

I like the Pittsburgh idea a lot. Count me in if my financial situation is better by then. And it should be.
