How you know someone is from Pittsburgh

Around here we have our own way to talk.  Most of it doesn't even make sense, even to me, and I've lived here for a long time.  I think most of it is just being being too lazy to say the whole word, but I have no idea where the other stuff comes from.

Here are some things you will only hear in Pittsburgh:


We also have our food.....

Up until a couple years ago I didn't even realize that most people didn't know what a pierogie was!  I've been eating them my whole life, so they were no big deal to me.  It is sort of like a ravioli but it is stuffed with cheese and mashed potato (sometimes sauerkraut) then fried with butter and onions.  Sooo good!


Another food we are famous for is the Primanti's sandwich.  It is a HUGE sandwich topped with french fries, cole slaw, and all the fixinz.   It's basically a heart attack waiting to happen.


Thinking of taking a trip to see Pittsburgh?  Stay tuned, because I will be posting a giant list of things to do around the Pittsburgh area next week.

Have you ever been to Pittsburgh?  Do you have any certain language goofiness or crazy food that your town is famous for?
