Roving Pittsburgher Report

Tambellini’s Ristorante
You have to check out their beautiful new front with Tambellini’s TV on it and the beautifully remodeled inside with wonderful Italian pictures. I had the raviolis, which tasted like the late Mary Pelligrini had made them, and amazing veal Oscar and canolli. Don’t forget when Positive Pittsburghers.com gets to 500 members, Tambellini’s has graciously offered their legendary zucchini appetizers to everyone on the site.

Sean Jones’ Soireee Voyage D’Amour
I attended this jazz show at the Caberet Theatre and what a delightful date night journey with such amazing originals as:“Dinner Conversation,” “No Need for Words,” “Love’s Lullaby, “and “Morning After, Hopeful.”

Entrepreneurial Thursdays
There was a great crowd at Entrepreneurial Thursdays with International Entrepreneurs, and so many business owners attending who immigrated to Pittsburgh and are now running businesses.

Wyndham Grand Downtown
I visited the Wyndham Grand Downtown and remodeling is going excellently. It looks like they will be finished by summer, although there is no official announcement.
