Pittsburgh's Soup Nancys:
"Serving Up Soup for You"
Soup may be the lingua franca, or common language, of the culinary
world, as it seems that every culture likes soup. Pittsburgh is
fortunate to have two remarkable cooks, Linzee Mihalcin and Sara
Raszewski, who speak soup language better than anyone else.
'Burgh Buddies: Texting Trouble
Kim and her parents were sitting in their living room on Saturday
evening. Minutes went by without a word being spoken. Mr. Ye spent the
last hour explaining to Kim that she has to be more careful. Now, he
just sat in silence. Her injuries weren't serious, but Mr. Ye knew that
carelessness in the future could lead to real disaster.
Mrs. Ye was very grateful that Kim's injuries weren't too bad, but she
couldn't help but blame herself, as she was the one who gave in to Kim's request
to borrow her phone. During Mr. Ye's hour-long lecture to Kim, she wanted to
change the topic a little, but she believed that Kim must learn a lesson about
being safe and what can happen if she is not more aware of what she is doing.
Pittsburgh: "City of the Angel"
If Los Angeles is known as the "City of Angels," then
Pittsburgh could be known as the "City of the

music realm since 1972. "I think we are the longest surviving group in the
area," said Jack Hunt, who is more prominently known by his stage name, Johnny
Johnny Angel and the Halos' rise to celestial heights is a true Pittsburgh
story. Johnny grew up on Pittsburgh's North Side in the Woods Run area and
always knew he wanted to make music. He began singing in choirs as a child, and
a cappella on street corners with his buddies in his youth. His parents wanted
him to play the accordion, however, Johnny had a different vision.
Pittsburgh's Wine Country
decades, Pittsburgh has been known as a "shot-and-a-beer" town, but
that reputation may be changing as more people are turning to wine as
their alcoholic beverage of choice, and more wineries are opening in
the area to accommodate the changing palates.
Wine consumption is increasing all over the nation. According to the
Wine Institute, consumption was up 5.4 percent in 2010 over 2009, with
each resident consuming approximate 2.54 gallons in 2010. One reason
the experts believe we are imbibing more is because of reports of the
supposed health benefits of consuming wine, and the abundance in recent
years of grapes.

Greeks in Pittsburgh: From a Small Country to a Large
size of Alabama, Greece has made a huge impact on the
world. The Greeks have made enormous contributions to
architecture, philosophy, theater, politics and
government, sports, mathematics, science, and
medicine-literally all of Western Culture.
Like the diminutive size of their homeland, the Greeks
who came to Pittsburgh were few in number when compared
to some of their other ethnic counterparts, like the
Germans, Italians, or Irish. Nevertheless, that small
number of Greek immigrants who did settle here
contributed to making Pittsburgh a great place in which
to live or visit.
