What: Edible Allegheny Magazine hosted its inaugural Rock ’N Ramen event, bringing together great music and delicious food for a fantastic night out!
Where: Spirit in Lawrenceville
Highlights: Edible Allegheny Magazine took two parts ramen and three parts rock to get one big night of Rock ‘N Ramen! Spirit in Lawrenceville was the scene and the crowd loved it. Guests were greeted at the door with a pair chopsticks to sample some of the best ramen in Pittsburgh, provided by the great chefs at Tan Izakaya and Soba. Tan Izakaya served its Tan Miso Ramen, consisting of a pork-based miso broth with toppings that included pork belly, tofu skin, seaweed, corn, green onion, and fish cake. Soba served a seafood ramen with bay scallops and shrimp, and bean sprouts, scallion, and nori garnish. Spirit’s bartenders provided drinks for the crowd while Meeting of Important People started the night off with an acoustic set of original music. Bikini Islands followed with a set of surf-inspired rock, and local garage band Chase and the Barons delivered the night cap. — M.H.
“The night was rockin’! Spirit is a great venue and we can’t wait for the next one. Reggae and Ramen, anyone?” — Jack Tumpson, publisher of WHIRL Publishing
