Nied’s Day

Must have been a slow news day in Pittsburgh Saturday……But, it was a big news day for a little corner tavern in Lawrenceville!  I’d like to thank County Executive Rich Fitzgerald, State House Representative Dom Costa, and Allegheny County Communications Director Amie Downs  for their efforts in making this proclamation happen!  But, more importantly, I’d like to thank you, the rest of my family and friends and the best long time employees any business could have.  Truth be told my contribution is minimal to a 72 year run in business compared to the efforts of my Father and the nucleus of employees that I inherited.

Thank you all!
