PITTSBURGH -- Earlier this week, Benkovitz Seafoods in the Strip District of Pittsburgh announced it was going to have a "Trash The Octopus" party before Game 3. They promised octopus whacked like a piñata, which got us down there. Alas, this did not happen.
But we did witness octopi shot into nets like hockey pucks and grilled by trash-talking Pittsburgh Penguins fans.
We also discussed the fishery's policy on not selling octopus to pretty much anyone from the Midwest during the Stanley Cup Finals. It was quite a rally, with literally
hundreds dozens six or so fans in attendance.
Take a gander, and visit Benkovitz at www.benkovitzseafood.com.
