North Side Sandwich Week

We were excited to have hosted the third annual North Side Sandwich Week competition a while back, featuring sandwiches from many of the best restaurants across our neighborhood of Pittsburgh's North Side.  Participating restaurants included the legendary Peppi's Subs, James Street Gastropub, Atria's PNC Park, and many others.  The food was great, as was the music, beer from Penn Brewery, and the chance to mingle with your neighbors.  It's a great event, we were proud to host it, and we look forward to hosting it again next year!

Incidentally, that's former Pittsburgh Pirate Grant Jackson in the middle photo, who was one of the celebrity judges.  Grant was a relief pitcher on the Pirates 1979 "We are Family" World Series winning team.
