The Apocalypse Arrives (At South Side Works)



Fried baloney, deep-fried Twinkies and country music -- it doesn't get much worse than this. (Unless one considers the ridiculous public subsidies associated with the already faltering South Side Works.)


Let's hope URA funds are involved, so we won't have to put up with this addition to Pittsburgh's culinary landscape for very long.

That is actually Pork Roll in the picture, which is a culinary delicacy worth the terrible music and public subsidies.

Sounds like a good place.

Please get Quadrophenia, Let It Bleed and American Idiot, a 12-pack of good beer (Troegs variety pack would work), and a couple of doobies. Lock yourself in a room and don't come out until the you've gone through everything (twice, with the music).

If you have time, get a Motown or Stax hits collection, too.

It sounds like your life may depend on this.

Fried bologna + fried twinkies +
"a couple of doobies" = a Fried Pittsburgh Hoagie

Where have you read that So. Side Works is faltering?

The empty storefronts are talking. But not with the proposed $50 hotel-condo building that has been shelved.

$50 hotel/condo?! That must be the one on Baltic Avenue.

$50 million hotel/condo. My mistake. So not on Baltic Avenue.

Not at South Side Works any time soon, either.
