Pirates and Pierogies

Although I am definitely a Dodger girl at heart- V and I had the opportunity to go to a Pirates vs. Colorado Rockies game a couple of weeks ago and of course went, mainly to check out the amazing PNC Park! The park was opened in 2001 and is right on the river and faces the Roberto Clemente bridge.
Absolutely beautiful.

We went to the game with some friends and rode to the game in a hilariously 90's white limo.  Hey, it was cheaper than taking a taxi.  The entrance to the stadium is pretty impressive as well.

Notice all of the black and yellow?! During the 7th inning stretch, (halftime for you un-sports minded peeps) we decided to scope the grub situation.  I chose a traditional hot dog, have to admit- better than a Dodger dog.  Van however chose to go with this monstrosity- no joke.
Um...yeah.  I had never heard of or seen anything like it in my life.  This was a "house smoked pulled pork and Pittsburgh style pierogies on top of a homemade pretzel bun with onion jam."  I can't...I just can't.  He somehow managed to finish the entire "stacker" and although he was stuffed- he was in love with it.  Yeah...Pittsburghers definitely have an affinity for piergoies.
Anyways, the Pirates lost.  Surprise, surprise. The game was fun though, and I'm glad that V experienced the signature sandwich- and won.
