    Would love to get together. Bad Bird and I used to work together and I run into her from time to time. I think she'd show up too.

    Haven't been to the strip in a loooong time; would need directions to wherever we go, Cargal! I mean, I know how to get to the strip but names of places are lost on me.

    I'm thinking Rolands. ONe year the outdoor balcony was filled with revelers, it was Jan 3rd and the temp was in the 70's. Food is good, and easy to find.
    Any other suggestions are welcome. Oramar, whadya think? How about Poli's, I have never been there though.

    If it just didn't take 6 hrs to drive to Pittsburgh, you could count me in!

    Isn't Poli's in Squirrel Hill? I was there once but that was about.....17 years ago, I think. Nice place, good seafood.

    Kaycee, a really nice site. I forgot to sign guestbook, will do it later. I was looking at your panorama of the Golden Triangle. What are all those white buildings? Apartments or office buildings? Can you still see the river (s) from the fountain area? I asked a Pittsburgher that question a while back and he said, "I don't know, haven't been down there in years !" From the panoramic I can't, but I certainly hope they haven't built up so much that you can't see the river. What a crime that would be.
    Cinncinnati has the most beautiful riverfront of any city I have ever seen. It goes on for miles. No tall buildings. The city slopes toward the river and the last 1/3 of a mile is park land to the river.
    In Pittsburgh, the last time I was there, we were at a small park up the hill, from 3 rivers stadium. There was a college up there and a park with a wrought iron deer and some other stuff. Do you Pittsburgh nurses know where I am talking about? Pittsburgh is a beautiful city too.

    passing thru,
    That was not my site. Someone sent it to me so I just posted it. Glad you liked it though. You can see the river from the point if that's the fountain you're talking about. They haven't built anything around there. A great new view is to see the river and town from PNC park the new baseball park. That panoramic view looks double sided and a little distorted. Hard to tell exactly what that all is. They have built alot of stuff down by the rivers. Restaurants, movie theaters and such. Pittsburgh really is a cool city.

    Hey does anyone want to meet at Station Square. There are some cool places to eat there??
  12. by   Zee_RN
    Station Square sounds great to me. I like that better than the strip district. At least I know how to get there and back! There's that cheese cellar place, the Gandy Dancer and Hard Rock Cafe. How about Hard Rock? It's not cheap and it's not quiet but it's a pretty cool place.

    Zee, the strip is easy to get to! I would prefer somewhere where we can get reservations and hear each other talk. Most places down Station Square do not take reservations, unless we go to the Grand Concourse, now that I wouldn't mind!

    Thanks for all your responses,
