I rode off to get this one tag I had in mind.
It was a ways away and I got tired.
This is the tag you’ll have to find.
1) Note the shadows; according to the EXIF this was snapped at 17:10:59. Had I only waited that one second longer…
2) Those spires are indeed in the Romanesque style.
Sigh, I know. It’s had me thinking about building a Monster Bike…
And, yes, I already know about this one:
What I’d really like is one that I could use to crush me some cars.
@Ahlir, now I know why you were so sorely missed. Great tag!
This was a tough one for which to pick a shot but it’s just one of the neat things in that corner of Pittsburgh.

Lafayette Hall historic plaque outside Mandarin Gourmet restaurant, Fourth and Wood streets, downtown. I thought that brick looked dang familiar.
This is the way to where the symphony used to play, though it might look more like something from the wrath of Kahn. You shouldn’t have to hunt too hard for it.
Ok, let me float a clarification to a previous clue.
You shouldn’t have to Hunt too hard for it.
See if that helps.
Also, it might be windy out today, see if the wind helps you.
I had a hunch that’s where it was, but on unicycle Thursday and motorcycle Friday, I didn’t have much opportunity to head over that way.
OK, Jon, this might be a race. I was headed out to OTB for the Reverse Keg Ride anyway, planning to leave shortly.
Colorful clue, Bill. Thanks!
Very good Stu. Just by way of explanation of the clues, through this underpass is docked the Counterpoint II, a floating concert hall and sometime home of the American Wind Symphony. And it was designed by world renowned architect Louis Kahn. It has been around the world, and it sits forlornly among rusting gravel barges.
Got the tag!!!
Cow on front yard of house on Penn Ave in Garfield!
I’ve been wanting to tag this for myself before!
While everyone knows of the “Great Fire” that almost destroyed the City of Chicago in the late 1800’s, did you know that Pittsburgh had its own version of it ahead of the Windy City? This plaque that commemorates the catastrophe is located in a very busy street in Town, however unless you actually look around for it, you won’t notice it :(

Located close to Pittsburgh’s historic Casino District.
Some additional clues did come to mind.
For example “almost Heaven”, ” a Pen on the way to a” …
and a close-up
Sometimes a river runs through it
it runs over it
To say more
a ton and still fail
to make my poem soar
This tag doesn’t need a clue because it’s Internationally known.
And for the whiner(s) who didn’t like the clues on my last tag… as promised, here are the coordinates where you can go:
Damn you randy!!! You brucefd me!!!!
Was just gonna post the pic and you beat me to it :)
Ohhh well, a nice morning detour :)
Thanks to this tag, I remembered to bring with me the library book I have to return. But now I don’t feel any desire to run out to Oakland to return it.

Does the Downtown library have an external drop? I’d suggest hitting it on your way home, but they may be closed by then, and I vaguely remember having been foiled by it before. (If nothing else, the North Side branch definitely has an external return box…)
