A Pittsburgh Weekend (and Winery)

Going to Pittsburgh this weekend, the town I grew up in.  Always fun to visit of course but one of my favorite things this time of year is how green it is- our house is in a very leafy suburb, so not unusual to see sights like wild turkeys running across the lawn.

Plan is my brother will finish driving from North Carolina and we’ll have a dinner at a local winery of all things, called the Narcisi Winery about a 15 minute drive from our house.  I know what you’re thinking and I agree- a winery in Pittsburgh?!– but all the grapes are from Pennsylvania and the wine is passable.  And when you’re with good friends and there is good wine and food who cares where it’s from right?

From the front, with an obligatory Italian flag!

Anyway, have a good weekend guys and when I return I will have stories of things like Kennywood and the Pittsburgh Pirates- I’m told tomorrow is “Italian appreciation night” at the latter and when I asked who we’d be playing my brother responded “does it really matter? We’re going to lose anyway.” Gulp!
