The City of Pittsburgh is incredibly hilly, twisty and has 446 bridges (city with the most bridges in the world) spanning over three rivers: Allegheny, Monogahela, Ohio.
This is the city of Black Moth Super Rainbow and the grimy mutant electronica of BMSR frontman TOBACCO. Not to mention the home of billionaire Mellon family, George Romero, Disney’s Imagineering Lab, complete T. Rex skeleton and more.
It’s also home to the PGH Taco Truck owned by James Rich. This truck is ususally stationed outside Coffee Buddha (964 Perry Hwy, Pittsburgh) and by 2016 the genius Mr. Rich will also have a TACO BOAT cruising the 3 rivers of Pittsburgh. Genius idea!
Apparently, the only other city with a taco boat is Seattle. DETROIT NEEDS A TACO BOAT!
