Hey, Conflict Kitchen:

Remember when I posted about Conflict Kitchen and how they needed our help on Kickstarter?  I like to think I really helped.  That story got passed around by a bunch of people, even Bill Peduto (Thanks, Bill!), and they made their goal.

Now here’s the deal.  I gave money because it’s a really awesome project that I wanted to support.  I don’t want to sound ungrateful, that’s what charity is for, to help others.  However, I gave a specific amount because of what the backer gifts were.  I love music, and am interested as to what contemporary Iranian music is.  I also really wanted to read the facts and see the layout of the food wrappers, since I wasn’t able to get down during Kubideh Kitchen.

But still, I have not seen any of those.  I’ve tried contacting both Conflict Kitchen and Waffle Shop, but to no avail.  Maybe they’ll read this and maybe I’ll get my stuff.  I sure do hope this is resolved.

Urbanophile, Waffle Shop and NaNoWriMo

Couple items for everyone today.  Urbanophile profiled Pittsburgh.  We’ve heard it all before (the Steel bust, our revival, rest of the country claims we don’t matter that much, check the comments for that one), so it’s becoming a bit cliche.  I was alerted to it from The Daily Dish (a British blog that mostly talks about American politics), so it’s getting some traction.  Anyway, take a look, and make sure to check out the comments.

Waffle Shop is looking for a manager.  If you have experience in restaurant management and want to work in one of the most unique restaurants in the country, check it out.

And finally today, writing has been a bit slow on the site due to my annual, crazy dive into National Novel Writing Month.  Pittsburgh has an awesome group writing this year, and you’re more than welcome to join in.  If you’re not up for writing the book that’s been bouncing around you head this year, you can still help out. 

We’re collecting books (new or used) in support of creative writing programs that The Office of Letters and Light (NaNoWriMo’s parent organization) offers free in schools around the world.  You can drop off books at any of the events listed on our forum (or just see what we’re talking about), and learn more about the book drive here.

Leave a comment if you need help finding a time/place to donate books, I’ll make sure you get hooked up with someone in your area.

I think I have some awesome posts in the works, and maybe even a give-away, so stay tuned!

Iranian cuisine at Conflict Kitchen

Waffle Shop put up a great video showcasing Iranian food, which was being featured at Conflict Kitchen.  Stick around until the end for the cooking-show-esque demonstration:


Conflict Kitchen needs workers

Waffle Shop’s Conflict Kitchen is looking for some people to work Monday-Friday, 10-3.  Currently, Conflict Kitchen is serving the Iranian kubideh.

More information here.

Conflict Kitchen follow up

I previously wrote about Conflict Kitchen, and now the PG has covered it, adding this amazing little fact:

“I am a locavore, so the beef we use is from a cow in Ligonier, and the flour is from a gristmill in Latrobe.”

Being a graduate of Saint Vincent, I can attest to how awesome everything that comes out of the Gristmill is, next time you’re out that way, stop in, you may even see some of the monks making flour, and be sure to swing around the back to the coffee shop!

And related, above Conflict Kitchen and Waffle Shop is their billboard project, a public forum.  The first is up:

Conflict Kitchen

The creators of the Waffle Shop are back, having expanded into the space next door.  They are now presenting, Conflict Kitchen, a rotating, take-out food place that serves ethnic cuisine from a county that the United States is in conflict with.  Right now, they are offering the Iranian Kubideh.

Programming appears to be planned, but nothing has been announced yet, although any events will take place in the Waffle Shop.

Want to learn more about Iran?  Check out the wrappers that will be used for your Kubideh here.
