When I escape from the confines of Brunstucky, my favorite neighborhood is Tremont. I can frequently be seen in Grumpy’s enjoying blueberry pancakes or the Treehouse enjoying a Guinness or even one of my new favorites - Prosperity Social Club snarfing down some pierogies made by little Polish ladies.
I'm happy to share with you scoopage about the Tremont Neighborfood on Saturday, June 22. For a $40 (or free…keep reading) ticket, you will be invited to dine in 8 participating restaurants within walking distance of one another in Tremont.
