A Taste of Westmoreland, on March 16, brought people out of hibernation a little early to meet and make friends.
Held at the University of Pittsburgh at Greensburg in Hempfield, the event, in its 21st year, benefited Congregation Emanu-El Israel, in Greensburg.
More than 20 vendors showed off their best dishes while guests had the opportunity to sample and win prizes.
Vick Glowacki, with his wife, Carol, of Stahlstown, favored the ribs from Texas Roadhouse in Hempfield, while Mary Lou Silk, of Plum, with her husband, Dick, preferred the chicken marsala from DeGennaro's Restaurant and Lounge, in South Greensburg.
Amy Urana, of Latrobe, said she had so much fun last year she decided to bring her friend, Ricki Sherback.
They ate with the Silks and Glowackis.
“That's the great thing about it,” Urana said. “Meeting nice new people you didn't know before.”
Bob and Marion Slone sat with longtime friends Cindy and Delbert Myrga, and Cindy's sister, Polly Greene, who just moved back to Greensburg from Charleston, S. C.
Some other delicious offerings: polenta from DeNunzio's Restaurant in Jeannette; buffalo chicken and pierogie pizza from Abie & Bimbo's Pizza in Greensburg; lasagna from Giannilli's II in Unity; red velvet ice cream cake from Cold Stone Creamery in Hempfield and homemade soups and apple pie and ice cream from King's Restaurants in Delmont and Greensburg.
Seen: Jerry and Yolanda Pavloff, Eric and Michele Bononi, Doug Bailey andJan Butcher, Suzanne Mahady, Pat Mahady, Jeff and Gail Malloy, Barbara Ferrier, Dean Thomas, with his daughter Britteny, Terry Katzman, Julie Cawoski, Iva Munk, and cartoonist Randy Bish, who was drawing caricatures.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments â either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail.
