The event, co-sponsored by Crown Royal, and Morton's Steakhouse got off to a great start as soon as we walked through the front door as we were immediately treated to a sample of Crown Royal Reserve Blend by one the most lovely of hostess sampling-type persons. It only continued to get better and better from there. This month's special guests were ESPN's Steve Levy and hockey analyst, Barry Melrose. The program hosts were the always-affable Stan Savran, his sidekick, Guy Junker and Producer, Chris Mack.
All the while that we were enjoying this sumptuous meal, we got to listen to two of the best sportscasters this city has ever known, Stan and Guy, along with the knowledgeable Steve Levy and the always-controversial and now mullet-less Barry Melrose. Is there a closer spot to heaven than this? For a sports fan who loves his Pittsburgh sports? No way, Giuseppe.
ABOVE: Barry Melrose (sans mullet in center) announces that he'd draft Alexander Ovechkin over Sid and Gino. Stan (right) is incredulous at this revelation. Then again, Barry lasted about two weeks on his last coaching gig so don't get too whipped-up about it. This is also not a good way to win friends in Pittsburgh where no one gives you points for your honesty in selecting hated rivals over your favorite hockey sons.
ABOVE: If you're really looking to enjoy an outstanding meal, you can rest assured you'll find it here at Morton's where even the salmon steaks are great.
