Saturday night around 10pm there was a three alarm fire in Pittsburgh, and it took out one of my all-time favorite places, The Harris Grill in Shadyside. You can read it for yourself in the Trib here. The Harris Grill used to have FREE Bacon night every Tuesday night. I wrote a story about it along time ago, you can read it here.

The owners say they are going to rebuild which I think is a great idea. In the meantime I hope another local bar starts offering up free bacon. I am not saying I want a replacement bacon night, because nothing will ever compare to Harris Grill, but free bacon would make the pain easier.

I was going to go to bacon night last week but had to cancel. Now I wish I did because it would have been the last bacon night, ever!
