Yinz asked, and Yinz received. I’ve had requests to reboot the blog vs. only posting on social because we’re all sick of the state of those platforms. What better way to kick it off than with THE GREATEST WEEK IN PITTSBURGH! You may think I’m exaggerating, but seriously, this Saturday will be the Super Bowl of Steak!

This Saturday, August 26th, 11A – 4P at The Huntingdon Place, is the 9th annual “Grill Your Ace Off ” steak cookoff and the state’s largest steak competition! There’s a lot of info to go through, so here are the fast facts.


  1. Last year, $17,000 was raised for the Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh.
  2. In eight years, the event has raised over $70,000!
