Holy guacamole, this has GOT to be Pittsburg Kansas, not Pittsburgh PA.
Pittsburg Kansas, besides being home topublic radio station KRPS has two
fried chicken spots of note: Chicken Annie's and Chicken Mary's. I believe
Chicken Mary's still has Polka Dancing. The Pittsburg State University is
the Gorilla, They even have a lady Gorilla Basketball team if I remember
right. A very exciting thriving metropolis, and not too far from Big
Brutus, the world's largest steam shovel.
