The Big Friendly Giant

Thanks to Chris Togneri for a great article in the Pittsburgh Tribune Review. The future is brighter for one Pittsburgh slum, with a new restaurant titled BFG set to open soon:

Unfortunately the most rightful meaning of that acronym BFG appears to have been lost. I will have to notify the reporter. I think that the restaurant, set to open on one of Pittsburgh's major art corridors (or "arteries"), should sport a mural of the Big Friendly Giant, one of my favorite childhood tales:
