Bread and Salt bakery, 330 Pearl St, Bloomfield. Open only Fri-Sun. Bummer.

Mark Bittman wrote “the best pizza al taglio I’ve tasted in the last few years — including all but a couple in Rome itself — can be found in Pittsburgh, at Bread and Salt Bakery, the scrappy place owned by 39-year-old Rick Easton.” http://mobile.nytimes.com/2015/11/08/magazine/a-slice-of-heaven-in-pittsburgh.html

Wow, it’s got such wonky hours that… “Yelpers report this location has closed.”

EDIT: yep, a Facebook post by the owner on 2/27 confirms the closing.

“Bread and Salt
We want to thank everyone for their support over the past year. We have made the rather difficult decision to not reopen the bakery. We are saddened to no longer provide bread for our community.
I am moving to New York and excited for what possibilities the future can bring.”

New tag. Good for at least a week, and probably half a year.

Astronomy can help, as can some knowledge of iguana habitat. Solvable without the word hint.

Keeping Tabs sculpture in Squirrel Hill. Forward and Beechwood. With Marko82.

That wasnt MY tag. Im trying to follow everyones interpretation of the rules.

My previous tag was miss-taken as well…so I adjusted appropriately for this tag. The hint and the tag are pretty obvious…I was going to add as @ph included in his hint…get it quickly as it may be gone in…it’s ephemerisal…but I thought it was overkill …

But I guess …how someone said:
Just move on…

New Tag!

Underwear Rides are starting soon!

You might find an outfit here perfect for those rides, but I’d only wear these sort of garments around the Home.

I wonder what keeps that store in business. Surely there can’t be that many people who don’t know about the Internet. Maybe it’s for when you just can’t wait?

^ I don’t know for sure, but I think they might actually sew the stuff there, sorta like Aerotech does for cycling jerseys. Different clientele for sure, but who knows what that Venn diagram looks like.

Homewood Art House v.2

loc: 40.452714, -79.888794

On Hamilton at Brushton. A block down from the original Art House (an earlier tag).

Paul including the address in the EXIF made this one easier.

oops!

Also: have you been checking the GPS on The Iguana’s tags?

No, I didn’t know it was on.

EXIFs? I don’t need no stinkin’ EXIFs…

No really. This was not a difficult tag to find; after all, it’s only a block down from the previous Art House tag. That I happened to set. (And let’s not all get started on the metaphysics of Tag and what makes a tag a Tag.)

But the point is taken: don’t just point to your entry on Flickr (or whatever). Make sure you’re pointing to the image (typically a .jpg file).

It’s hard to avoid pointing to the entry on Flickr. I don’t know how to do it from some of their UIs.
But you’ll be fine so long as you turn off GPS labeling on your phone when you take the photo, and don’t include a clue in a caption.

Two ways to deal with flickr:

1) right-click on page, click ‘view page source’; find (^F) the first instance of ‘.jpg’. This is your image. (Different sizes will show up further down.)

2) click to download the image; upload somewhere else; post that url. This means that you already have some place.

Both are kind of a pain, especially if you’re trying to post on the road (which I don’t). But the first solution is not all that onerous. YMMV, as they say.

ok, @ paulheckbert, I posted my new tag in LESS THAN 24h.
And it’s, like, the underneath of a BRIDGE.
I mean, I thought you knew ALL of these places!

Do I need to post a hint? Really?

Neville St busway ramp crossing under Baum Blvd, accessible from Centre & Neville. Did you know that the busway ramp’s foundation is composed of about 24 million pounds of concrete? http://i-vortext.blogspot.com/2013/12/the-east-busways-singular-lens-on.html

A postscript: @paulh had to scale a more-or-less steep, muddy slope to get his shot. Here’s a take (off to the left, however):

Yes, it was an alternate tag. So many tags, so little time…

Was it always a school? That’s an incredibly ornate door, and a good tag.

Ahlir: is that the new tag, or just an extra picture for fun?
