New Roving Pittsburgher Reviews!
Like a Trip to Sicily, La Tavola Italiana Ristorante
Review by Joanne Quinn-Smith
I first discovered La Tavola Italiana in 1999 when half of it was a pizza shop and Mama Giaramita was still alive.  What a place then. I owned a limousine business and it was a great place to get a late bite and take my limo clients when they wanted to eat. My clients were always delighted.   It is owned and completely run by an Italian family from Sicily.

Kiss and Cry: A Tour de Force That Blends Many Elements
Review by Hank Walshak
Kiss and Cry, played at the New Hazlett Theater, talked to my heart as only a work of theatrical genius could. The story is about an aging woman at the end of her life travelling back into her memory, sometimes dim, as she remembers the men she's loved and who have gone from her life. The question that burns for her is: Where are they now?

Our Town, Comfort Food For The Soul
Review by Joyce Kane
PPT's production of this venerable play penned by Thornton Wilder opens with Stage Manager , ably played by veteran Pittsburgher Tom Atkins (The Chief") verbally  painting the picture of 1901 Grover's Corners, NH.  The physical attributes of the small town, with its layout, descriptions of the movers and shakers, and the various homey details that characterized early 20th Century life in New England come to life for the audience despite the minimal set.

MWSA Conference Review
Review by Joanne Quinn-Smith
You know you are in a good place when the President of an organization starts off the orientation by announcing that the members donated and he and a committee packed and delivered over 500 books to the local Veterans hospital. Such was the case as Dwight Zimmerman, MWSA President opened up the conference.

Information and tips not tricks on heart health gleaned from Mrs. Cardiology's Fireside Chats with her cardiologist husband, Dr. Santosh Pandit. After 30 years of wedded arranged marriage bliss to Dr. Santosh Pandit, my "fireside conversations" with him has convinced me that there is much more to cardiology care than any doctor can possibly cover in the average fifteen minute consultation. The personal experience of having taken care of my father with Congestive Heart Failure more than 10 years ago left me helpless in understanding and knowing how to help him. Today I know more that I certainly wish I knew back then. So I embark on my personal adventure to address that somewhat overwhelming world of cardiac education and I like presenting in plain English! Behind every Doctor's white coat facade churns a world of untapped education that the layperson, or would be patient, needs to hear in pure unadulterated everyday language. That's my mission to let you know of the insights that I have garnered and the mysteries that I can uncover for you about the "perils of the heart."
