Welcome to PA Trip Recap #2.
On Saturday we headed to a part of Pittsburgh referred to as The Strip. Charlie was on a mission for some good eats and I was hoping to score some fresh produce (I ate lunch before we left).
D ended up falling asleep on the drive over to The Strip – he was still making up for all the late nights – he parties hard.
Charlie had some recommendations from his Uncle and settled on a place called Peppi’s Old Tyme Sandwich Shop where he could tackle their famous Roethlisburger sandwich (named after the Steelers Quarterback, Ben Roethlisberger).
D opted for a BLT but was ultimately only after the B and refused to eat the L & T – typical veggies hater that he is.
Charlie attacked his sandwich like a champ – it did not stand a chance. He finished the WHOLE thing.
After my guys filled their bellies, we walked around for a bit and moseyed into a few shops.
I did score some really yummy apples that were a bargain and D got himself yet another sword. He wanted to be one of the Ninja Turtles.
We made sure to tell him that waving that at people was a definite no no.
We ended up leaving The Strip to head to Schenley Park for the Pittsburg Vintage Grand Prix. How lucky were we that it just so happened to be going on the weekend we were in town?
We checked out a bunch of cars that were just part of the show (not racing). Charlie was drooling over a bunch of the sports cars.
I was drooling over the antiques.
I LOVE old autos.
There were really cool vehicles on display to check out.
After walking through the car show we went to watch the racers.
It was very amusing. We had a blast watching all the old cars (in mint condition I might add) speed by.
It was beautiful outside and we took full advantage of the lovely day. It was a great start to our vacation.
More vacation details to come - I have plenty more fun things to share with you all.
