Much as TV remotes require batteries, people need cuisine before they can perform their daily tasks of changing channels and hiding in between couch cushions. Keep human bodies energized with today's Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of American fare at Frankie & Georgie's 4 Wood Grille.
Frankie & Georgie's 4 Wood Grille silences appetites with a menu loaded with traditional American fare and quenches thirsts for entertainment via live music performances. Buffalo wings arrive dressed formally in a diners' choice of more than 25 homemade sauces ranging from honey mustard to Terminator ($5.95 for 10; $9.95 for 20; $14.95 for 30) before beginning a slippery dance with sauce-coated fingers. The baby back ribs' dry-rubbed, barbecue-drenched edible xylophones ($16.99) appease bellies grumbling for nourishment and the right to vote, while Frankie & Georgie’s cheesesteak (6", $4.99; 12", $9.99) satisfies palates that demand the finest in melted cheese.
Live musical acts flood ears with sound waves on a weekly basis, producing smoothly crooned melodies from tuneful throats. Patrons can also play pool, testing their geometry knowledge as they skillfully read angles to determine whether the table is a hexagon or rectangle.
Frankie's Squirrel Hill
The owners of Frankie's Squirrel Hill believe in variety. That’s why customers get the ultimate in choice everywhere in the restaurant, from the diverse local and national musical acts that visit to more than 150 beers that span microbrews, imports, and craft suds. To go along with the brew selection, the menu boasts pizza, hoagies, hefty burgers, and entrees such as chicken marsala and dry-rubbed baby-back ribs. But just like an airplane, Frankie's Squirrel Hill might be best appreciated for its wings, which come tossed in one of roughly 25 house sauces such as chinese hot, garlic butter, and honey habanero. Customers exercise decision-making skills for a final time after dinner, when they can choose to watch programming on 1 of 11 TVs or play at pool tables and dartboards.
