Since no one actually knows how to pronounce "Wilkes-Berry", "Wilkes-Bar", "Wilkes-Bar-ray" or "Wilkes-Bear", referring to this northeastern Pennsylvania city simply as "the barrio" may avoid a fist fight. Barrio is the Spanish word for neighborhood.
Me and my peeps saw ya at Public Square in the Barrio.
The Barrio has the best Haluski and Perogies, hayna?
That Wilkes-Barre Scranton penguin fan is from the Barrio, hayna?
The urban planning in the Barrio is thus: church, bar, church, church, bar, crackhouse, university, bar, church, bar.
