Joseph Is Seeing Tap That On The Outside!

IMG_20191005_101839618_HDR
On October 5, 2019, while I was mailing a letter at Cuddy Post Office, I was able to snap this photo of Tap That, which is located next to the post office in Cuddy. This is the outside of the building. Hopefully I can eat there in the near future.

Now, back in August of this year, the Iron Creek Bar and Grille, which was in Cuddy for nearly nine years, became a fairly classy restaurant called Tap That.  Now, I was not able to see the building in person until October 5, 2019, whenever I was mailing a letter outside of the Cuddy Post Office.  While I was standing outside of the post office, I was able to snap a photo of the building that Tap That has been housed in for the past two months.  Now, in the past, it has been called several different restaurants, including Mariani’s Italian Restaurant, Iron Creek Bar and Grille and Ferguson’s Pub.

Now, I went to this place whenever it was called the places that I just mentioned in this post … and, hopefully, I can go there as Tap That at some point in the near future.  If I do go there, I will try to snap a selfie while I’m there … and I will talk about my experiences of eating there in a future blog post.

So far, Tap That is a fantastic restaurant … and, by looking at the photos of the restaurant on Social Media, you can easily tell that they didn’t change it too much.  Sure, they may have painted a wall or two, but, the inside of the restaurant hasn’t really changed too much since the Iron Creek Bar and Grille left the building this past Summer.  I can’t wait to see the inside of the restaurant in person someday, but, for the time being, I will just show you what it looks like on the outside.

Joseph Goes To Wahlburgers At The Mall At Robinson!

Now, for 5 1/2 years, there was a show on A&E called “Wahlburgers.”  It was about the Wahlberg family … and it would sometimes talk about a restaurant called Wahlburgers, which is located near their home in Hingham, Massachusetts.  Now, Wahlburgers has several locations around the world … and one of those locations is in The Mall at Robinson, which is actually in the food court.  It’s not actually in the food court, per se, as it has their own seating area.  It’s primarily a sit-down restaurant.

I actually got to go to a Wahlburgers restaurant for the first time ever on September 23, 2019.  I had watched “Wahlburgers” on a nearly-regular basis for 5 1/2 years on A&E.  I watched it mainly on demand whenever the show was on A&E.  I would actually get to see some Wahlburgers restaurants on the show … and I would sometimes see the food that they have on there.  I also got to see them building a Wahlburgers restaurant several times on the show.

Now, I was able to enjoy myself while I was there.  The waitress who served me and my relatives that day did a fantastic job in serving us.  She also give us a little speech to first-time customers, like myself.  It went very well.  I was there at around lunch time this past Monday.  It wasn’t too busy whenever I first arrived there, but more people came in while we were there.

Now, inside of the restaurant, you can see pictures of the Wahlberg family … and you can also see the TV shows and movies that Donnie and Mark Wahlberg have done over the years.

I was able to enjoy myself while I was at Wahlburgers in The Mall at Robinson on September 23, 2019.

Now, while I was at the restaurant, I had water, a vanilla frappe, which is really a milkshake, Jenn’s Chicken Sandwich, which is a grilled chicken sandwich, and some french fries.  I also got to try out some special sauces that they had … and some of them were pretty good.  One of those sauces was the Wahl Sauce.  It was fairly good.

As I was leaving Wahlburgers in The Mall at Robinson on September 23, 2019, I was able to snap a selfie outside of Wahlburgers.  I like the restaurant a lot.  The food and the service were both excellent.  I will be going there again in the future.

As I was leaving Wahlburgers at The Mall at Robinson on September 23, 2019, I snapped this selfie near the restaurant’s entrance.

As you can see here, I really enjoyed going to Wahlburgers.  I will be going there again in the future.  The restaurant is fantastic!

Say hello to a principal named Kevin Maurer!

Now, last August, I bumped into both Karen and Kevin Maurer while I was at South Fayette Community Day.  Both of them were teachers in the South Fayette School District … and I would have them for classes at various times while I was a student in the school district.  Now, as it turns out, the Maurers have two children and at least one grandchild.  One of their children is a son named Kevin … and I had the honor of meeting him at Railyard Grill and Tap Room on September 6, 2019.  He is the assistant principal at South Fayette Middle School.

Two Macho Dudes In One Night

During the second half of my blog’s fifth year, I will give you chances to revisit some of my past blog posts … and, throughout June, I will give you chances to revisit posts from my blog’s fourth year. Today, I will let you revisit a post from my blog’s fourth year. It’s from May of 2018 … and it’s entitled “Two Macho Dudes In One Night.”

Now, on May 23, 2018, I went to Bee’z Bistro and Pub for a couple of hours that evening … and I went there to see one of DJ Joe’s shows for the first time in almost two years. I wore my purple Macho Man shirt to the restaurant then … and, just minutes after I arrived at the restaurant, I noticed that DJ Joe was also wearing a purple shirt to the restaurant. To my surprise, he was also wearing his purple Macho Man T-shirt at Bee’z. This was planned, believe it or not.  We were both in the bar part of Bee’z whenever we wore the shirts. The shirts are very classy … and, while we were there that evening, we were able to wear them with class. DJ Joe is one of the classiest friends that I have ever known … and, whenever he wears the “Macho Man” shirt, he becomes a “Macho Dude.” In a way, it turns me into a “Macho Dude” as well, so, as you may have guessed, there were two “Macho Dudes” at Bee’z on that May night in 2018.

Of course, we would wear the Macho Man shirts to Bee’z again in January of 2019 … and, since we were able to wear them with jeans back then, we were able to wear our shirts with a lot of class. I like this shirt a lot … and so does “DJ Joe.” I would just like to say that the purple Macho Man shirt is the “de facto” shirt of our friendship. Hopefully we can wear them to Bee’z again in the future.

Tomorrow, I will write my 1,150th blog post down … and it will be about a classy shirt that I bought at T.J. Maxx recently.

In honor of my blog’s fifth year, I’d like to show you five blog posts that I wrote down on or around June 26th in previous years …

Joseph Pratt's Interests And Some Other Things

On Wednesday evening, I was able to go to Bee’z Bistro and Pub, which is located in South Fayette.  I went there with one of my relatives for two hours … and I was able to see one of DJ Joe’s shows for the first time in almost two years.

I was also able to wear my purple Macho Man shirt to Bee’z while I was there on Wednesday evening.  I really like the shirt a lot.

IMG_20180523_180858376 On May 23, 2018, I went to Bee’z Bistro and Pub, which is located in South Fayette. I was able to wear my Macho Man shirt while I was there.

At around 6:30 that evening, I saw DJ Joe walking through the restaurant’s front door … and I noticed that he was wearing a purple shirt as well.  Just minutes later, I realized that he was also wearing a purple Macho Man shirt. …

Joseph Visits Crazy Horse Coffee (Part 2)

In the second part of this two-part blog post, I will tell you about Crazy Horse Coffee in general since I was not able to visit that place today.  Of course, I was not able to meet the owner of the coffee shop, who is a former veteran named James Bendel.

The coffee shop is located in Park Place Shopping Center, which is located on Route 19 near Washington, PA.  It’s a relatively small coffee shop … and it’s really nice, nonetheless.  They have a few tables in the coffee shop … and they have coffee, snacks and some breakfast sandwiches there.  They also have coffee cups and T-shirts there.  They have a little room in the back, but it can only be used for certain occasions.

All in all, this place is fantastic … and, hopefully, I can go there again in the future.

Joseph Visits Crazy Horse Coffee (Part 1)

On May 18, 2019, I went to Crazy Horse Coffee, which is located on Route 19 near Washington, PA.  It’s in a relatively new shopping center called Park Place Shopping Center.  This is not too far away from the Meadows Racetrack and Casino.  Since I may be visiting this place more than once, I will be turning my visits to this coffee shop into a two-part blog post.  I will talk about my first visit to Crazy Horse Coffee in the first part of this two-part blog post.

Now, I was able to check out the coffee shop whenever I went there for the first time last month.  While I was there, I had a small decaf latte.  It was pretty good.  They have a little bit of everything here, including snacks, some breakfast sandwiches and, of course, coffee.  There is also a private meeting room there, but while I was there, it was not open.  I was not able to see the meeting room in person; however, I was able to see photos of it on Social Media.  It looks fantastic, nonetheless.

Crazy Horse Coffee is owned by a former veteran named James Bendel, who is from the Pittsburgh area.  I didn’t get to meet the coffee shop’s owner while I was there last month, but, hopefully, I can do that whenever I go there again next time.  Hopefully, I can say that I met the owner whenever I write the second part of this blog post next time.  If I’m unable to do so, I will describe the coffee shop in detail in the second part of this blog post.

“Mr. Classy” Goes To Pittsburgh Twice!

During the second half of my blog’s fifth year, I will give you chances to revisit some of my past blog posts … and, during the month of June, I will give you chances to revisit some of my blog posts from my blog’s fourth year. Today, I will give you a chance to revisit two of my past blog posts from my blog’s fourth year. In both of these blog posts, I am talking about Mr. Classy’s trips to Pittsburgh.

In March of 2018, “Mr. Classy” made the first of two trips to Pittsburgh. He was able to wear the black leather jacket, which is from Vintage Leather, for several hours on that day. On that day, he visited Shadyside, The North Shore and Downtown Pittsburgh. At the end of the blog post that I wrote down in March, I said that “Mr. Classy” might go to Pittsburgh in a matter of days … and he was right. He went there again a few days later … and he went to some great places in Pittsburgh. When “Mr. Classy” went there in April, he went to Shadyside, The North Shore and Downtown Pittsburgh. In his two trips to Pittsburgh, “Mr. Classy” went to Panera Bread in Shadyside, The Rivers Casino on the North Shore, The Clark Bar and Grill on The North Shore, Burlington Coat Factory in Downtown Pittsburgh and Fifth Avenue Place in Downtown Pittsburgh. Will he go there again in the future? Probably.

I am showing you the blog post from March of 2018 and I will also show you the link to the other blog post, which is from April of 2018.

Here’s the link to the blog post, which is from April of 2018 … https://pghjoseph.wordpress.com/2018/04/15/mr-classy-goes-to-pittsburgh-again/

Joseph Pratt's Interests And Some Other Things

On March 14, 2018, “Mr. Classy” was able to spend a few hours in the City of Pittsburgh.  While he was there, he was able to wear his black leather jacket, which is from Vintage Leather, with his very classy outfit.

He was able to visit Pittsburgh from around 7:00 in the morning until around 2:00 in the afternoon. It was also very chilly outside back then, but that didn’t stop “Mr. Classy” from snapping four selfies both indoors and outdoors.

On March 14, 2018, “Mr. Classy” spent a few hours in Pittsburgh. He stood near the Omni William Penn Hotel while he snapped this selfie. It was still dark outside at that time.

At around 7:00 in the morning, “Mr. Classy” was standing near the Omni William Penn Hotel, which is located on Grant Street in Pittsburgh. He was standing in front of Brooks Brothers before the sun came…

Joseph’s Top Blog Posts For June 2019

June is almost here … and Summer will be here in less than one month.  Now, throughout the Summer, I will be celebrating my blog’s fifth anniversary by giving you some great surprises … and, while I do that, my blog’s features will be taking a well-deserved break until the Fall.  I guess you could say my features will literally be taking a Summer vacation.

Today, I will tell you about some of the blog posts that I’ll be writing down in June.  At least one of the posts may catch your eye.

One of my blog posts will be entitled “I still have my Colussy Chevrolet shirt one year later!”  Nearly one year ago, I got a blue and white Raglan shirt from Colussy Chevrolet, which was celebrating its 100th anniversary last year.  I still like the shirt and I will try to wear it at some point this Summer.

Another one of my blog posts will be entitled “I have my Yeti Coolers hat one year later!”  I purchased my blue Yeti Coolers hat at Bridgeville T.J. Maxx nearly one year ago.  I like it and I will try to wear it often this Summer.  The hat is very classy and I hope you guys like it also.

Another one of my blog posts will be entitled “Joseph Remembers His Battle With Lyme Disease Three Years Later.”  In it, I will talk about me getting Lyme Disease from a tick bite three years ago.

Another one of my blog posts will be entitled “I’m Getting Ready To Celebrate My Blog’s Fifth Anniversary.”  I will be getting ready to celebrate my blog’s fifth anniversary on August 24th … and, in this post, I will be telling you how I’ll be celebrating the milestone.  The celebration will start on July 24th … and it will last for one month.  I will have lots of surprises for you guys between July 24th and August 24th.

I will write a two-part blog post in June … and it will be entitled “Joseph Visit Crazy Horse Coffee.”  In it, I will talk about my trips to Crazy Horse Coffee, which is located in Washington, PA.  The coffee shop is owned by a former veteran named James Bendel.  This coffee shop is fantastic.  I had a small decaffeinated latte while I was there.  Make sure you check this place out if you ride through Washington, PA, someday.

Another one of my blog posts will be entitled “6,000 Views And Counting.”  My blog will hit the 6,000-views mark at some point in June … and I will let you know as soon as we hit that milestone.

I will give my features a break in June … and, throughout the month of June, I will give you chances to revisit some blog posts from my blog’s fourth year.  Some of them may surprise you.

Also, I will give my computer a break for one week in June.  I will be doing that from around 7:00 p.m. on Friday, June 7th, until around 5:00 a.m. on Sunday, June 16th.  You will see two of these blog posts at different times between those two dates … and I may throw in a surprise in there at some point that week.

I hope you will check out at least one of my blog posts in June.  I’m sure at least one of them may catch your eye.

In honor of my blog’s fifth year, I’d like to show you five blog posts that I wrote down on or around May 30th in previous years …

Blog Post Number 1,125

Today, I am writing my 1,125th blog post down … and it will be about my Henley shirt, which is from Railyard Grill and Tap Room.  This is probably one of the classiest shirts that I have ever owned.  I got the shirt last month while I was at the restaurant.  The Henley shirt is both light grey and dark grey … and the sleeves are 3/4 inches long.  There are three buttons on the Henley shirt … and “Railyard Tap Room” appears on the front part of the Henley shirt.  The shirt can be worn with jeans, shorts or dress pants.  You can either wear the Henley shirt by itself or you can wear it over a T-shirt.

IMG_20190411_044107973
This is Joseph’s Henley shirt, which is from Railyard Grill and Tap Room in Bridgeville. The shirt is both light grey and dark grey, the sleeves are 3/4 inches long and there are three buttons on the shirt. The restaurant’s name is on the front part of the shirt.

I bought the shirt for 25 dollars while I was at the restaurant last month.

IMG_20190501_121732603
The Henley shirt is 25 dollars at Railyard Grill and Tap Room. It’s a classy shirt.

Just moments after I bought the shirt back on April 7, 2019, I tired it on … and it would fit me perfectly.  I snapped a selfie just minutes after I bought the shirt … and I snapped two photos of myself wearing the shirt four days later.

When I celebrated my 33rd birthday on May 1st, I wore my Henley shirt since I would be going to the Railyard Grill and Tap Room for lunch on that day.  I wore my shirt both at home and at the restaurant on that day.  Now, while I was at the restaurant, I bumped into Nicholas Ciesielski, who wore his Henley shirt to the restaurant then.  He was scheduled to come in later in the afternoon, but he was nice enough to stop in early to wish me a happy birthday and to appear in a selfie with me.

IMG_20190501_122606855

On May 21, 2019, I went to the Railyard Grill and Tap Room for lunch … and, this time, I bumped into Cody Ciesielski while I was there.  Cody worked with me several years ago at Bridgeville T.J. Maxx and he’s a terrific friend of mine.  Cody and I both had our Henley shirts on while we were at the restaurant.

As you can see here, I like my Henley shirt, which is from Railyard Grill and Tap Room, a lot … and I hope you guys do also.  It’s one of the classiest shirts I have ever owned.  Please buy yourselves this shirt if you go to that restaurant.

Next time, I will give you a chance to revisit a blog post from my blog’s third year … and it’s from the Spring of 2017.  I will give you a hint … I will talk about a shirt, which is from another classy business.  The business is also in Bridgeville.

In honor of my blog’s fifth year, I’d like to show you five blog posts that I wrote down on or around May 21st in previous years …

Joseph’s Flashback: Joseph goes to Pizza Capri in McDonald!

McDonald is a terrific town and it is located in Washington County … and I have gone to that place many times in my lifetime.  The town has some fantastic restaurants, including Pizza Capri, which has been in McDonald for many years.  I don’t know how long it is been there for, but I do know it has been in the town for as long as I can remember.  It’s a fantastic pizza shop … and I went there quite a bit whenever I was younger back in the ’90s.  At the time, it was on East Lincoln Avenue in McDonald.  Another pizza shop is currently in the building that once housed Pizza Capri … and, now, you can find Pizza Capri on Route 980 in the heart of McDonald.  The food there is fantastic … and I would like to go there again at some point in the future.  When I went there in the ’90s, they didn’t have breakfast items … and, now, they have breakfast items.  Maybe I can go there for breakfast someday … or maybe I can get pizza there someday.

Next time, I will write my 1,125th blog post … and I will give you a hint.  The blog post will be about a very classy thing.

In honor of my blog’s fifth year, I’d like to show you five blog posts that I wrote down on or around May 20th in previous years …
