Reserved Chairs...

Wait, what?!
Never heard of reserved chairs?
In the city areas of Pittsburgh it is customary to reserve your
freshly shoveled parking space with a chair.
There are parking chair etiquette rules to be followed.
Wikipedia has an entire entry for Pittsburgh Parking Chairs

Fortunately, we do not have to practice this tradition.

except in our kitchen...

where we always tag our chairs for holidays.

The tags have stayed the same for years and years,
which just makes them more special every holiday.

Christmas reserved chair tags just went up!

Oh my gosh, I've never seen this before!! THis is crazy!

But I have to say, one year I went down to Mexico and stayed at a resort and people did this with the chairs at the pool. People would wake up at 3am, go down to the pool and put their towel and magazine on the chairs they want and then they go back up and sleep until 10am. It was crazy!

I thought for a moment you were blogging about us here in Boston. This is a huge tradition (and issue) here and especially in South Boston (Southie). Had no idea it was a Pittsburgh tradition too!

Well I'm a born and raised Phoenix girl so you can imagine I've heard of or seen such a thing. If I was visiting there I would be very confused about all those lawn chairs. funny.
