Memorial day weekend is a huge deal here in Pittsburgh. It really marks the start of summer and the weather is usually great. For this reason many people have cookout’s and there is always so much do to around the city. For the past 5 years Faded Industry has held the white party. Just like the name says the idea of the white party is for everyone to wear white. I actually went to the white party for the first time last year and I definitely was going this year! I’m really good friends with the guys from Faded Industry so they invited me on a party bus. We took the party bus around the entire city before we went to Diesel, where the event was being help. We filmed the entire thing, check out the video below.
The white party was so much fun and after watching the video above I’m sure you will want to go next year! You can check out all my photos from the white party here.
After recovering from the white party I decided to have a party at my place. The last one I had was a huge success so why not have another one. About 50 people showed up and it was a great time. The party lasted to about 5am! I guess my friends know how to have a good time!
Memorial day this year was great and I hope I have more weekends like this over the short summer we have here in Pittsburgh!
I’m sure many of you have heard of bucket list’s. They are lists of things you would want to do before you die or before you move away etc. After doing some research I found there was not really a bucket list that was specific to Pittsburgh. So I decided to make a Pittsburgh Bucket List website.
I first came up with my list. The idea was that I would be leaving Pittsburgh for good in 1 year. Of course that is not the case, but that this the premise of the website. I first came up with 16 things I would want to do before I would leave Pittsburgh for good. This is not a large list, but it is a start. I want to get the list up to 100 items!
I love to try new things and I always love going new places. This bucket list is a great way to experience new things and share them with people. Each time I complete something on the list I will be blogging about it so you can experience it as well.
The site was really easy to make. It is based off WordPress and the layout was a free one I found online. Any feedback on the site would be great!
If you have been reading this blog for any period of time or you read my tweets you know I’m a huge fan of Pho. Pho is Vietnamese beef noodle soup and over the past few years has become one of my favorite foods. This past weekend I was in Philly for theGXL and it was dinner time and being in a new place I decided to see if there were any Pho places. A few came up and the closest was Pho Thai Nam. I went there with my good friend Colin. The menu was quite large and they offered a lot of different items. The first thing I ordered was the deep fried spring rolls, which were very good.
Next was of course Pho. They have about 10 different choices, but I went with the rare beef with tripe, which is my usual at almost every Pho place I eat at. Many people think tripe is weird and I guess you can say that it is. I really does not taste like much and has a really weird texture, but for some odd reason I do enjoy it.
Our Pho came out very quickly and was nice and hot. Everything had a good taste to it and I was very impressed. The broth was very tasty and for me it did not need any of the sauces you normally get with Pho. If you are ever in the Philly area and want some good Pho you will not be disappointed with Pho Thai Nam. I wish we could have went back so I could have tried something else!
