Fat Tuesday at work

I haven’t had anything from Oakmont in what seems like forever, but we’re celebrating today, even if it isn’t king cake.

Go Pretzel!

You may remember, a few weeks ago, there was a water main break at the Civic Arena that I posted about.  We had to close early since we had no water.  I ran down the hill and into the USX Tower so I could use a bathroom, since we had been without for hours, and it was still another hour and a half until the first bus came I could grab.

So, having relieved myself, I had some time to kill and decided to wander around downtown a bit before heading to my bus stop.  I never had a chance to go to Dozen, but have been intrigued by the new storefront, Go Pretzel.

I made my way to Liberty Avenue and into the store, which is just a small counter and glass display.  I decided on a regular pretzel, although they all looked awesome.  And a side note to the management, the woman behind the counter was super friendly and very kind, not sure if she always works Friday afternoons, but she was awesome!

I went back onto the street and began a slow wander killing time, and I have to say, the pretzel was awesome.  Warm and delicious and just the right amount of salt.  If you’re downtown, make sure to check them out!

Nominating Calvary

The PG’s blog City Walkabout has a write up about the nomination of Calvary Church to be added to the list of National Historic places, based on its architecture significance.

I belong to Calvary, and it is a beautiful church.  I’ve never had a chance to take one of the architecture tours, although I do want to.  A book that explains a lot of the beauty of the building is available in the bookstore, and here are a few links to learn more.

In the meantime, stop by any time, it’s a welcoming church in Shadyside at the corner of Shady and Walnut.
