Harris Grill, Shadyside

13 Apr

Having visited for lunch the day before with a friend, she♥ insisted that we stop in for lunch the next day.  Seriously, I know its praise but she wouldn’t stop talking about it.  What’s a foodie to do?

She♥ requested the balcony seating near the window, which conveniently was open.  Apparently this place is crawling at night, but for lunch it was very quiet and intimate.

Our view…

Gorg.

The food was amazing, their menu is full of quirky names for food which makes it easy to imagine large crowds gathering at night.  That and the amazing patio out front.  We’ve walked past in the evening and the place is a madhouse!

I ordered the “Aw, You’re Pulling My Pork” sandwich, made from scrumptious shoulder pork.  Its apparently slathered in something called Big Gay Al’s Strawberry Chipotle Barbecue Sauce.  Never heard of it, but Big Gay Al gets my stamp of approval.

The sandwich came with a side of coleslaw and a Greek salad.  I feel horrible, but I didn’t touch the salad.  I put a little bit of coleslaw on that bad boy and I went to town.  Fat kid style.

Everytime I eat pulled pork, I try to recreate the best pulled pork sandwich I’ve ever had, which was from a food cart at the Midsummer Music Festival at Rock Falls Park in Slippery Rock.

Seriously.

Also, big brownie points with me is the use of buns sourced from Allegro Bakery in Squirrel Hill.  Big thumbs up to Harris Grill for locally sourcing!

Harris Grill is awesome!  I definitely recommend going there for lunch, but we might have to stop by in the evening for some drinks once of these days.  It happens to be located in Gay Central Station.  😉

Grunt work ♥

12 Apr

Since Easter, it has been work, work and more work!

Things are really moving along with my cloth diapering service, Changin’ Time.  The calls/inquiries are rolling in and we are trying to check – check – and double check everything so that this process is painless.  We are pretty much awesome.

Today was a lot of grunt work though.  Part 1 Phase 1 I feel like, of a broad marketing campaign that will start small and then escalate.  But like I said, today was Part 1 Phase 1…

Lord, I feel like we drove around EVERYWHERE today.  But, it wasn’t so bad really.  Logistically, it makes the most sense for us to target our main marketing areas, so in a few days we are going to do this all over again but with different types of businesses.

It’s actually pretty effing cool to be hitting the streets talking to people about cloth diapers and getting them as excited as you are about your business.

It was so nice out today…chilly but the kind of blue skies that Pittsburgh only really sees in the spring.

I love Bloomfield and wish I could have taken more shots of it today, but we were busy zip-zapping around getting our work done.

I did capture this growing over a fence in an alley…

lovely ♥

Pretty sure she♥ had this place in mind all along, because we “happened” to strategically pass by the Harris Grill on our way towards home.  I’ll let you wonder how it went until tomorrow….

Night, dolls 😉
