Stop #24; Herr's Island

Date: August 11
Neighborhood: Herr's Island
Pitt Stoppers: Mindy, Jimmy D., Dave, Big Al, Colin, Paul, Richard, benoddi, Bobby D., Laurel, Jonathan, Carolyn, Lily, Lisa
Bar: Red Fin Blues
Pluses: Deck and patio right on the river.

Weirdness: Red Fin Blues had the most aggressive tiki torches that I've ever seen. about foot of flame flew from each. Doo doo doo. Those who were there will understand.

Aside: I never did get official confirmation on whether Herr's Island is in the city or not. It's not separately listed on the City's website, but I just don't think it is part of Troy Hill. Insights into this quirk are welcome.

Enjoying the patio by the river.

Washington's Landing nee Herr's Island IS in the City. Troy Hill DOES include Herr's Island. I guess because so many people who lived in Troy Hill worked at the stockyards there, running the hogs up "Pig Hill" (Rialto Street)to the slaughtrhouse in Spring Garden.
