Fly, Eagles, Fly!


Our third annual August football trip lands us in Pittsburgh this year. My partner is a Steelers fan and I'm an Eagles fan (don't ask, somehow we just make it work). For the past three years, our teams have played against each other during preseason. Last year we went to Philly, a great food town, and it was extra special not only because the Eagles won, but also because I had just moved away from Philly two years before. We went to the restaurants I missed most- Chickie and Pete's and Chink's Steaks, picked up a poundcake from Stock's Bakery and even fit in a side trip to Atlantic City during our three-day trip!

Thursday morning we fly to Pittsburgh (also a fantastic food town) for a visit with my in-laws, a few days with Cynthia (of the 50th birthday post a few weeks ago), visits with friends and more family (hey Colleen, isn't it Dia's birthday weekend?!?) and last but certainly not least, a Sunday night Eagles v. Steelers game!!! This is always one of those trips that you wait forever for and they're over in a flash, but I still couldn't possibly be any more excited. Of course, we have our favorite dining venues lined up, and will have photos and stories of it all upon our return. GO EAGLES...and the eggs.

At Chickie and Pete's yes- your smiling face made the whole trip worthwhile! In A.C.- you weren't smiling. You were very hung over. Poor Nunu.
