Pierogies

We broke our first world record here in Pittsburgh almost a week ago, right in Rivers Casino on the North Side. This was Pierogi Day, of course, and Pittsburgh now holds the record for largest pierogi, weighing in at a mighty 123 lbs. Apparently there were at least 60 potatoes used in the process, and special tools and refrigeration units were created to contain this monster. Mrs. T had this to say to the Post-Gazette about the event: “If you ever hear someone talk about (sic) when they had a pierogi, they will always remember the first time because it was something they were doing that they liked.” Wise words, Mrs. T, wise words. How many people do you know that don’t know where they were when they tried their first pierogi?
