Thanks for posting the obituary. I had totally missed Joe Chiodo had passed away.
Only made it to Chiodo’s Tavern once, even though it is a place I had always heard about it. It didn’t look very inviting from the outside and the area it was in wasn’t the best. But I was treated very well on that visit. Had the mystery sandwich and lived up to its billing. The size was immense. Did not get the chance to meet Joe Chiodo while I was there, but the atmosphere of the place told me enough. It is a shame the tavern is no longer there.
RIP to a true Pittsburgher!
