I sure hope to be a part of this!  I have been to Pittsburgh once about 25 years ago; actually, New Kensington.  We went to an after hours place with a little speakeasy window.  It was like a movie; had to have "connections" to get in! But I didn't eat one bite of Pittsburgh food. Not one bite! Need to make up for lost time!

Let's set s date. I need to start looking for cheap rooms!

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?


That's the same deal ChiTown made me.....but, switch out Cousin Johnny for Carolina Bob!

I think the Brewers are facing relegation.

Maybe they can be moved to Montreal!

 
I hear Jarry Park is a most excellent venue for the base-ball.

And don't forget---- No trip to Pittsburgh is complete without a ride on the Incline!
http://www.stationsquare.com/info/inclines

The Incline's a train?
 
I thought it was something requested by visiting businessmen, arranged via the subtle handoff of $20 to the hotel desk clerk.
 
(Un)naturally, french fries and cole slaw would be involved.

I loved it as a kid whenever the Pirates would visit Montreal, because it seemed at least once a series, Willie Stargell would hit a home run into the swimming pool!

We're all sharing a twin bed.

I was a kid, with my parents at Three Rivers Stadium for a Pirates game.  The bases were loaded, it was Roberto Clemente at the bat.  My mother said out loud, "Think home-run!"  Sure enough, he hit one out of the park!!

The response to this has been overwhelming and wonderful to see.  Ralph and I tried to do a Pittsburgh get together approximately three years ago and the only out-of-towners who came in were Travelin Man and wanderingjew.  And since Dale used to live here and visits often, he has reached honorary yinzer status.
 
It is so great to see all the interest.

This sounds awesome!  I'll keep watching the forums to see what city ultimately makes the cut.  Pittsburgh is one I have always wanted to check out. Would love to catch a Pirates game and Primanti's has been on my short list since I joined RF in 2005.

It's up for consideration for me and Mr. Maki.  

I'd like to try Conflict Kitchen while I'm there.  Who knows what the country will be by the time of the trip!

I sure hope it's not North Korea!

When I think of Pittsburgh I think of a real all American city. The city that hard working Americans produced most of the steel to build America. To me this place is the melting pot of America. The last place I would go to would be Conflict Kitchen. I would rather eat at a place like Primanti's, that have stayed open and survived through think and thin. The last thing I need is to eat a meal from a country that may hate the country I love........

I was first under the impression  that Kansas City was the considered spot for next year, although I'll take Pittsburgh too  I'm hoping like Chicago, this will be a May event. I really hope to attend although it will most likely be without Sandra unless her employer will magically grant her additional vacation time. The Pittsburgh spring event does not exclude that we will be doing an  early March event in St Augustine/Jacksonville. That will be going forward regardless. We already have several forum members who have expressed interest including ChiBears15Mike S and Karilyn, and I know Sandra will want to attend and we will likely be visiting Charleston and Savannah too. I'll probably start a thread on this just to get it going.

The Commissioner ruled that we must complete the NL Central before moving to the American League.

We can do it whenever.  I love Pittsburgh.  I grew up with steel workers and coal miners.  They were the backbone of that city.  Our inclines were built in the 1800's and are still in operation.  We have over 445 bridges!  And we're the only team that has a 6-pack!!!  And yes, us Yinzers call them the Stillers.

445 bridges may be an approximation,  they do steal bridges in western Pennsylvania.

Hmm...This event is a year away and we've already got "conflict".  Personally, this place wouldn't have been at the top of my list, but when the Man From Mars says it's "highly recommended", maybe we should leave our options open.  After all, if this tour follows the format established in Cincinnati and Chicago, we'll have two full days to fill, plus a Welcome Dinner and Farewell Brunch.  That's a lot of stops to be made.  Who knows, we might just need North Korea to fill a void in our schedule!
 
BTW, check out their "Past Versions" menus to get an idea of what was served.  Nothing offensive or outrageous, just good solid offerings representing that country's cuisine.  FWIW, every one of those horrible, hateful countries has ex-pats living in cities all over America.  Many of them opened restaurants serving their native dishes and are making a good living off it, experiencing The American Dream.  If I had the appetite to support it, I could sample the foods of all those nations in a single afternoon here in Chicago.  And I'd have a damned good time of it too!

I was thinking more on the lines of Josza's Corner, Primanti Bros., Wholey's, DeLuca's, Pamela's.....etc.  Of course bb and Ralph will fill in the blanks!

And let's not forget the culture. There's the Immaculate Reception statue at the airport, and the bridges, and the abandoned steel mills, and, and the guy with the soup cans, and the flying saucer, and the Tony Dorsett sign, and . . .

Can someone help me out?

Really hoping it's not Canada. Would make a visit from Mike and the Canadians a trifle uncomfortable
