Pittsburgh – the people who’ve defined it as boring and stupid obviously don’t get out much & are projecting what they see when they're peeking out from under the rock they crawled out of. Pittsburgh is a city that represents cultural diversity, civic pride, respect, and history. It was founded in 1758 and is located at the intersection of 3 rivers (which George Washington found to be advantageous when he was a general; Pittsburgh grew around Fort Pitt). Some people herein have defined Pittsburgh as dirty and ugly, because they have managed by some miracle to grasp that there had been steel-manufacturing here. But it was named the 10th cleanest city in 2007 by Forbes magazine, and is home to the first green-certified historic building, convention center, warehouse, banking facility, and university residence hall; The Green Building Alliance, a non-profit development svc that promotes green community development is in Pittsburgh. Pittsburgh has consistently ranked high (achieving number 1 many times) in several livability surveys. It has state-of-the-art healthcare (UPMC), reliable public transportation, several neighborhoods, and is a relatively safe city w/friendly people. As far as culture goes, its local public television station WQED has won over 60 Emmys & 12 Peabody Awards (and is where Fred Rogers aired Mister Rogers Neighborhood). George Romero and Tom Savini have not forgotten their ties with Pittsburgh; George Romero has filmed several of his movies in and around...more...
A 63 year old manasquan, new jersey nightclub so phenomenal it can only be open 15 weekend nights per year.
"osprey, the" n. where you go Friday and Saturday night, memorial day through labor day, unless you are bottomfeeding at Leggett'smore...
Appropriately named after a native predatory bird, the Osprey is home to "the band room", where an at-capacity nerds night feels like the first time you discovered your own genitals and the "boom boom room", a place where the beats are hard enough and the dancefloor is dark enough to.... make you feel like the first time you discovered your genitals. Either way, you're leaving this meatmarket covered in genitals. A 10 dollar cover charge goes towards maintaing the bizarre murals and mirrors of the BBR as well as a navy seal trainer to keep tommyshortshorts's quads in perfect bronzed shape. If he's not the man you prefer to wet your whistle, then surely euromullet can supply you with the red bull and vodka you need to hump a panama canal sized tunnel through brielle rd beach. The owner's hair looks like she found it in the delorean that's always parked on 1st and she's taking us back in time with her hitleresque ban on flip flops. We thank her, however, for the corpse she hired summer 2009 to mop the floors. But get there at just the right time or you'll be waiting on line til they play "runaround sue".We can only collectively hope that it may last another 63 years... so that our children's children may also open their bud light scented mouths and belt "take me home tonight" into the sea air.
Mobile Molestation Station, aka "creepy van". Typically a full size van, extra points for murals painted on the side, or the '70s bubble window and/or curtains
Have you seen the new neighbors? The guy drives an MMS and looks pretty creepy, don't let the kids out of your sight!
A Cantiki Bar is a fusion tropical mexican and polynesian exotic–themed drinking establishment that serves fancy cocktails, especially rum and tequila based mixed drinks such as the mai tai or the margarita. Cantiki bars are often defined by tropical mexican décor which can include "tiki god" and Mayan masks and carvings; tapa cloth and tropical fabrics; torches, palm tree motifs, and live or decorative chihuahuas and parrots. Beverages are usually served in fanciful ceramic vessels or large "margarita style" glasses often garnished with fresh fruit, paper cocktail umbrellas, live flowers or plastic animals.
Food, when served, can consist of hand-held items such as
chips and salsa; pizza bagels; pigs in a blanket; meatballs on a stick, taquitos with sweet and sour sauce; and sopapillas.
Muted colors, natural exotic materials, real and/or artificial plants and low-wattage year-round "christmas" lighting add to the exotic ambiance of a cantiki bar. Some feature indoor fountains and cliff-divers, bamboo fixtures, beach flotsam, woven grass wall-coverings, and panoramic South Pacific murals. Some cantiki bars have an entertainment stage for live exotica bands or Polynesian and/or Mariachi shows, or for hipper establishments - dance music.
When I was in the valley, there was this great Cantiki bar where we sat ouside in the warm night air.
A much larger scale of a "tramp stamp". In order for a tattoo to qualify for the title of "tramp mural" it must start at the regular position for a "tramp stamp" and go no shorter than the elbows when rested at ones side. Tramp murals can only be sported by women, and if she has one the odds are shes been nailed by more than one carpenter if you know what i mean.
Guy 1: Dude, check out that chicks tramp stamp.
Dude: You idiot, you can clearly see by the starting and ending points that it is clearly a tramp mural.
Guy 1: Oh, so that means shes a-
The act of skipping lunch to go to play basketball. A form of inter murals for aging males to continue playing the sport they love.
Alex: "Hey man you wanna grab some Taco Bell?"
David: "Nah, me and some guys are goin to play some noon ball."
The shittiest little hell hole of a town. 30 minutes out of Edmonton. Major town attractions are "Farmers Day" (once a year, "fairgrounds" (as in 4 rides) are set up with a rodeo) and the bountiful amounts of Stoners and Meth heads. Also memorable because of the ugly murals painted over every second building, including the old, rundown High School: Memorial Composite, which had so much property damage, it was cheaper to just build a new school.
1. "Want to get really stinking drunk and go on the only four rides at the Farmers Days carnival?" "oh man, do we have to visit Stony Plain again?" "There'll be lots of Meth!" "YEHAW." *puts on cowboy hat*
2. "Wow, this building looks like an insane asylum." "Oh yeah, it's the Stony Plain high school".
3. "Oh look at this cute little town" "DON'T! THAT'S STONY PLAIN." *Meth head jumps on roof of slowed vehicle* "NOW YOU'VE DONE IT!"
