Special for those in the Pittsburgh, PA area

The tortilla soup at Mad Mex is really yummy. Spicy and thick, with chunks of chicken and bits of cheese on top.

The crab cakes appetizer is even better. Big hunks of crab meat, clumped in some manner and lightly sauteed, and served on a bed of bean salsa. Mmm.

Put those two together, wash them down with a beer, and you’ve got a lovely meal for a Saturday evening. Or any night of the week.

I just thought you should know.

Coming tomorrow: My rave review of "The Vagina Monologues." If anything in Pittsburgh is more fun than the crab cakes at Mad Mex, it’s this show. tune in tomorrow to find out why.
