Thick Burger after Pedal PGH 2015!

Lunch at OTB on August 30.

I joined Pedal PGH 2015. I rode a bike for 25 miles. I rode to South Side from home in the morning, so I went for 40 miles total. I met my friends at OTB after the event. Beer tastes so good. I could finish Thick Burger with no problems. Yes, I deserve it.

Thanksgiving in August?

Dinner on August 15.

It was early January when I found a whole turkey in the freezer at basement. I talked to my sister and decided to cook. I guess it's less than the real Thanksgiving meal, but we enjoyed a lot. It was nice to eat those meals at patio under the beautiful sunshine.

Dinner at Proper before the Kinky Boots Show!

Dinner at Proper on August 6.

Meeting friends at Proper before the Kinky Boots show. I ordered appetizer and pizza. It was ok. But the show was awesome!

Proper Antipasto: house-cured &smoked duck pastrami,baked orange zest ricotta, fresh house mozzarella, aged balsamic, spicy pickled peppers, house parmesan herb crackers, house banana pepper mustard - So, most of them house made .... Everything was mediocre. I won't order it again.

Margherita - It's simple. That's why it is difficult to make it very good? It was good.
