A Midsummer Bite Stream

Road food, Pittsburgh pickings, and other notable photos from my trip to this year's Anthrocon, whose theme was "A Midsummer Night's Dream".  Some of Pittsburgh's restaurants changed their selection names accordingly.

Hickory BBQ Steak Deluxe combo
Hickory BBQ Steak Deluxe combo

Fernando's Cafe, Pittsburgh. AKA Furnando's, AKA Furryland.

The combo is in a commemorative dog bowl because the sandwich shop is closing down due to economic difficulties plus a new landlord who wants to convert the space to offices. Fernando would have been out of business already if Anthrocon attendees hadn't raised enough money for him to stay open until this year's convention. The bowl and name change to Furryland are in appreciation for the donations. Because of the media attention about the support for the shop, the new landlord will let Fernando's reopen in that location for the next convention, but the future is uncertain aside from that.

See?  The shrimp behaves itself.  Why can't the chicken alfredo be more like that?

With mashed potatoes, gravy, carrots, dinner roll, and coffee.

Now the hungry lion roars,
And the wolf behowls the moon;
Whilst the heavy ploughman snores,
All with weary task fordone.
Now the wasted brands do glow,
Whilst the screech-owl, screeching loud,
Puts the wretch that lies in woe
In remembrance of a shroud.
Now it is the time of night
That the graves all gaping wide,
Every one lets forth his sprite,
In the church-way paths to glide:
And we fairies, that do run
By the triple Hecate's team,
From the presence of the sun,
Following darkness like a dream,
Now are frolic: not a mouse
Shall disturb this hallow'd house:
I am sent with broom before,
To sweep the dust behind the door.
