Shortly after the NHL lockout ended, the Pittsburgh Penguins announced that they would do special promotions to lure fans back.
It used to be that stadium food was thought of as overpriced and lacking in flavor. Nobody wants to pay top dollar for old hot dogs with packaged ketchup, stale popcorn and maybe-meat burgers. In Pittsburgh, it’s no longer that way. Whether you’re heading to a fall football game or a spring baseball game, rest assured if you get hungry, you won’t have to settle for expensive and bad-tasting food. Try out these unique and delicious concessions next time you head to a game.
Not long ago, I noticed a creeping trend in the city of steel. When The Goodie Truck rolled on to the scene a few years ago, I was ecstatic. It made Pittsburgh feel trendy in the food scene! But it stood alone, save the amazingly delicious Pad Thai truck that, for as long as I can remember, has served the heat from the corner of Fifth and Bigelow. Last year, the owners of downtown’s hip hot dog shop Franktuary took their meat to the streets. So I decided it was time to check them out.
If you’ve been buying natural and organic hot dogs thinking they’re healthier, you may want to think again.
