That empty schedule problem has been taken care of: I just scheduled another event. This time, we're heading to a relatively new place in a different part of town. Village Tavern and Trattoria on the West End. It's a small independent place--the kind I love to support, so I went ahead and scheduled a meetup.What

-- A somewhat healthy slant on Pittsburgh dining.
One of the other Beer Meetup organizers (Brooke) sent me a pointer to this place along with some interest in giving it a try. I had never heard of it and, like many people, have never been to the West Side for food. Since the place opened, they've received a little bit of good press
, and seem to have some fans. It sounds like exactly the kind of quaint neighborhood place that I think is always worth trying.Details: Urbanspoon / Munch / City Paper
Both the City Paper and Munch (via the Post Gazette) were pleased with their visits. The scene seems to be a wide range of small and large Italian dishes coupled with sandwiches/wraps and even pizza. The beer list is decent, but not spectacular...and they also keep a variety of wines. I don't see too much in the way of veggie fare, but I'm more than a little intrigued by the beans and greens.
Want to come along and try something different? Signups will open up 10 days before the event.
