Take a Walk on the South Side

I rather liked the P-G's special Travel section today on Walking the South Side. Sure, there are quibbles. (Post yours in Comments.) Mine is that the paper's staff chickened out when they got to Homestead. After ritual expressions of dismay at the coming demise passing of Chiodo's, they headed straight for the Waterfront. Had they continued up Eighth Avenue into Munhall, a stone's throw from the Waterfront, they would have found The Outer Skin alive and well more than four years after its opening scandalized oh-so-proper Pittsburgh.

My other complaint about the Walking series is that it's not online. You can buy pamphlet versions of this one, and the earlier Walking Oakland and Walking Pittsburgh sections, at the P-G online Store. But if you don't want or don't need the pamphlet, you should find and keep today's paper. I will. The P-G, like a lot of Pittsburgh, is still learning a thing or two about e-commerce. One thing it hasn't learned, at least not fully: If you give it away to some people, other people will still buy it.
