1. “Where my fancy cuff links at?”
I’ve seen someone buried in a Pens jersey and married in a Steelers jersey. If you are not wearing something that could be construed as pajamas to work, then you are already ahead of 80% of Pittsburgh’s population. Casual Friday? More like casual every day. If comfort is a crime, then we are all guilty.
2. “I’m just having cake.”
Cookie tables are one of Pittsburgh’s greatest, most delicious gifts to this world and a staple in weddings, parties and my dreams. A Pittsburgh cookie isn’t just your average joe chocolate chip. I’m talking ladylocks, thumbprints, nut rolls, butter balls, biscotti, kolache, and everything in between — all homemade by your local grandma, mom, your aunt, your aunt’s friend, your neighbor, your neighbor’s aunt. It’s just not a Pittsburgh party without a cookie table.
