Last week we had only a moderately-Lawrenceville run, since we ran through it pretty quickly and headed over the longish, scenic and historic 40th St. (aka Washington Crossing) Bridge to Millvale - this time checking out the original Pamela's (we must have breakfast there sometime), the place that used to be the weird acrylic furniture store (things that are not there anymore), the Grist House Brewery, which is next to a canal-appearing waterway evidently called Girty's Run (which has its own Facebook page, updated 7 hours ago!) Aimee said it was a bit like the Netherlands in Pittsburgh (Pittsburgh being the operative word.) Also spotted: an inflatable to rival Our Lady of the Inflatables (see earlier post) - Santa and his entourage up on a rooftop.
Various thumbs up for Espresso a Mano cafe where we could set up a long table (great attendance!) and endorse:
- The Greens Cookbook
- Instagram? or Facebook?
- Shining Light Prenatal Education - evidence-based
- Local honey
- Miracle berries - taste-changers
- Not endorsed: Fire-retardant anything, now shown to be poisonous - let's hear it for evidence!
