There’s just something about fried fish and heaps of sides spilling over a simple Styrofoam container that makes us feel Pittsburgh-proud. (Plus, it damn sure fills our bellies.) But when all is said and done, if you had to pick *just one* fish fry to go to — choosing from the all the various options, at churches or fire halls or restaurants — which would it be? In essence, what we really want to know is the answer to this important question: Who hosts the Ultimate Pittsburgh Fish Fry?

Darlene Harris sought the endorsement for mayor from the Steel City Stonewall Democrats and still wants it from the local Democratic party. But the District 1 councilwoman still isn't officially running, her attorney told the Post-Gazette, which is why she hasn't filed a campaign finance report.

In this week's Pittsburgh Sports Power Rankings, DJ Gallo has some harsh but fair words for fireworks: How about you not terrify penguins? (PETA's mad about that, too.) Having a much better week than the penguins — the ones that had the bejesus scared out of them at Heinz Field — is Antonio Brown, who signed a four-year, $68 million contract extension to stay in Pittsburgh through the 2021 season. Plus, he didn't get scared by fireworks this week, as far as we know. Check out who else made the list this week, too.
