WEXFORD GYM TO HOST PREMIERE PITTSBURGH JUICE FEST
The growth of the local juice scene has resulted in a festival set for tomorrow, hosted by Pure Athletex in Wexford, to celebrate the plethora of options. Attendees at the event will score several area juiceries, including Salud (pictured), in categories such as Best Seasonal. There’s also a trio of discussions on the agenda.

OSTERIA 2350 SELLS ITS PASTA AND SAUCE TO GO
Putting together a party food spread can’t get any simpler when you’ve got a high-quality foundation. You can have all the hand-rolled or -stuffed pasta you desire from Osteria 2350 — papparedelle and agnolotti are two favorites. Catering to herbivores and omnivores, the restaurant also offers quarts of its meat- and veggie-based sauces. There’s a daily menu, but with advance notice, you could have your choice of noodle and sauce.

LAS CHICAS FOOD TRUCK LAUNCHES
The Las Chicas food truck now is serving Mexican cuisine in the northern ’burbs of Pittsburgh. Operated by a mother-daughter team, the recently launched food truck offers Hispanic home cooking in the form of burritos, tacos, tostada bowls and chimichangas. We’re especially liking the sound of the shredded beef flautas, deep-fried and served with a guacamole-cilantro sauce. All entrées are budget-friendly, costing less than $8. Las Chicas is open for lunch service on weekdays with extended hours on weekends.
