NOW THIS… THIS… is my kind of party. The 2011 Best Restaurants party was tonight at Heinz Field and we were lucky enough to attend. Thanks Pittsburgh Magazine! : D Picture this… Pittsburgh Magazine had the booths set up around the perimeter of the 2nd floor, easy access to individual booths if you knew just what you were looking for but also quite convenient for those who just strolled along pigging out at booth after booth (Mandy raises her hand).
