Squirrel Cage

A nice article in the Pittsburgh City Paper on The Only Bar That Matters. I managed to schedule my summer visit to Pittsburgh during their annual first-week-of-July vacation/repair, but it's good to see that the new ownership knows what their mission in life is--keep the bar the same, except the bathroom.

I'm not quite sure what Berry is talking about when she says “This neighborhood is so geared towards religious families, or graduate students who don’t go out much. It needs this”--if Squirrel Hill is geared to religious families, it's the kind who don't go out Friday nights, and in my experience graduate students aren't exactly shy about going out.

[If you've never lived in Pittsburgh this post may make no sense to you. Do I look like I care?]
