You guys. This month, quite possibly the best AND worst thing that has ever happened, happened. A TCBY opened less then a mile down the street from my house.


This is PHENOMENAL for my taste buds. They will be singing songs of great joy for years to come! However, this is not so great news for my diet and my wallet. Oh well. They're going to have to deal with it.


I love the set up. You walk in, you take a moment to catch your breath at the glorious site...

you choose your size, you choose from a wide array of flavors of yogurt...

then you head over to a magical place called "the toppings bar." This is where it all starts to get fuzzy for me...

So if you live in the South Hills of Pittsburgh and are in the mood for a cool, refreshing treat, head to Brentwood Towne Center and snag yourself some of The Country's Best Yogurt...IMMEDIATELY.

You'll be so glad you did!

Wordless Wednesday: Pittsburgh Magazine Best Restaurants Party

You could feel the collective rumbling of bellies emanating through the pavement. I ventured a guess that not one of the hundreds of us in line outside Heinz Field had eaten a regular-sized lunch in preparation for the gluttonous evening ahead.

Through the walled windows above us, we caught a glimpse of the area’s finest chefs salting, sautéing and styling thousands of delicious samples.

It was Pittsburgh Magazine’s Best Restaurants Party – an evolving mecca-of-sorts for the food-fanatics and socialites of Pittsburgh proper. PID, a few FORTs and I were among them, armed with anxious appetites.

We ate as much as we humanly could (PID made it farther than us all…). Some Amuse-bouches were amazing, and some left us bemused. But one thing was certain: the culinary creativity in this town is bursting at the seams. We have a few highlights from the evening to share with you all. Bon Appetite…

Cure (Best in Show WINNER) Salmon Tartare

Banana cream pie from Eleven, Salmon sashimi from Umi
Pork tacos with a chipotle aioli from Mad Mex
One of my favorites of the night, Sienna Sulla Piazza, with calamari salad and beet en croute
fresh, lovely bites from Vivo Kitchen
Clockwise from left: Avenue B, Cafe io, Sesame Inn
SAVOY (Best sweet AND savory dish WINNER) with salted caramel chocolate torte and chocolate lobster ravioli
Spicy Soba noodles from Nakama
Goat sliders with Kim Chi from Legume
Burger & Shake from Burgatory (Review coming soon...)
Meatball & mushroom risotto from Joseph Tambellini

There were so many more delicious bites from the nite. You'll just have to check it out next year to see for yourselves! Follow @PittsburghMag on Twitter to stay in the know.
