I haven't posted here as much as I used to, but I still read the board every day (have been since probably 96). I'm posting some good news today.
My wife and I had moved out of the Western PA area after college for jobs, but about a month ago we moved to the North Side of Pittsburgh and started up our own business in the Strip. Anyway we're very excited to be back because we love Pittsburgh (grew up in Latrobe). We were at the game last night for Sid's 100th point and were lucky enough to be in NJ for his first point. I must say that Mellon arena, as old as it is, is still better than "Brendan Byrne" arena in the swamp. And to think all those jealous Devils fans were chanting "overrated" to Crosby back in October!
Anyway, I wouldn't normally do this, but since it is an NHR forum I'd like to invite all Coffee/Tea/Soda (POP)
drinking Pens fans to come down to our new venture:
2018 Smallman Street (near St. Stan's church)
The Strip District
Pittsburgh PA 15222
Mon-Sat 7-4 (open later when the weather is nice)
We have a great selection of coffee, tea, espresso, pastries, etc. Business has been good and I'm hoping one of the Pens players will drop in sometime for a nice cappuccino (does Colby like espresso?) so we can get a picture for our wall.
So thanks for reading, please stop by and support your local businesses so we can get season tickets once this new barn gets built.
