Look Out Pittsburgh.

Earl and I are in from our evening on the town on Pittsburgh. We went back to Station Square (“Anything but Square”) where we enjoyed a nice dinner at Buca di Beppo. It’s a hodge podge of rooms on multiple floors where you enjoy Italian food family style. The server’s name was Connie. She was very friendly and I enjoyed her demeanor very much. She looked like a Connie though. Big hands. A hearty woman. Perhaps she enjoys what she serves.

There is a body-building convention going on. At first I thought there was some sort of transexual convention going because I saw a guys dressed up as women but lo and behold, they are body building women. They could wipe the deck with me in about two seconds. Huge guns. Huge legs. And not a feminine trait to be found. If they didn’t have thick layers of makeup on I wouldn’t have known they were women. I guess it’s whatever supplements they use to enhance their body building performance. I don’t get it, but hey, to each their own.

After dinner we went down to the main square where we enjoyed a performance of the dancing fountains. We had done the same thing five years ago, it was fun to see it again.

Here’s a quick video I made while we were walking around.


After the dancing fountains we walked up and down this “strip” a couple of times, where we stumbled across Karaoke Night at the bar in front of the comedy club. There were quite a few people in there doing their thing. We stopped by to hear some of the performances. A couple of beers later, I was on the stage performing “It’s A Miracle” by Barry Manilow.


No one threw anything at the stage and I had some applause so I guess I didn’t do too badly. I didn’t show Earl how to use the Flip Camera on purpose, so there’s no video, but behind door Number 2 Anitra Ford is pleased to show you the complete eight minutes of the dancing fountain performance we watched. It won’t hurt my feelings if you don’t watch the whole thing.
