Can anyone here give the proper answer to this?

There was a Hills on Perry Hwy in the North Hills.

What is it now?

:face: Ugh, the Clarks. And I want to punch a wall when I hear that overplayed, 20-year-old "Send Me on My Way" BS by Rusted Root.

I'm a selective Yinzer. I have very, very little, if any, accent and can't simply cannot deal with dropping "to be," saying "yinz," or punctuating every sentence with " 'an 'at." It takes effort for me to resist correcting people when they drop "to be," but I'm successful at it because I don't want to offend them. I don't enjoy country music at all, so you'll never see me country line dancing. I mention that because it seems common back home.

But I'm obnoxious waving multiple Terrible Towels (in Philly) and saying "pop." But I say "pop" mostly to elicit a reaction, since I know it drives people crazy out here. I also appreciate partaking in a nice baked ziti buffet and a cookie explosion table at a wedding or wake back home. And I think polka dancing is great fun, although that doesn't seem to happen as much as when I was a kid.

The only time I'd cross the Mon was to go to the airport.

Polka dancing needs to make a comeback. If I had the money I would open a polish version of Hofbrahaus only have a live Polka band every night.

Mac, you need to go to Trader Horn. I think this place would be your heaven.



There was a brief stint about 8 years ago where a huge space at parkway center mall operated as a flea market.

The only Hills I knew of in North Hills was at North Hills Village back when that was an interior mall and not the storefront strip-style it is now. This one is before my time.

I say Pop, although down here at school at dining halls/restaurants I force myself to say "soda" because most of the time they have no idea what I mean by "pop" and I get tired of explaining it.

My roommates know that if I ever find non-Heinz ketchup in our fridge it will literally be thrown away with no questions asked.

Nearly my entire wardrobe consists of either Steelers, Pens, or Pirates t-shirts/jerseys or Virginia Tech gear. I pretty much live by the sports t-shirt and shorts look.

If I get a burger/sandwich with fries I put the fries on it.

I don't have the accent and rarely say yinz but I will say things like jagger-bush, gumband, slippy, leave out "to be," and as I already said pop.

I like being drunk and "singing," "We're from that town with that great football team! We cheer the Pittsburgh Steelers!" dancing like an idiot, and then forgetting the words. I so wanted to sneak this in our wedding reception repertoire, but I might have been heading toward divorce before the reception was even over. LOL!

Was the Hills in the plaza with Foodland near Sewickley Oakmont Road, or am I thinking of something different?

I am 100% soda, and have been for as long as I can remember. "Pop" always sounded weird to me, like a word you would say as a kid but gets to be a little unacceptable as you grow older.
