Living by the neighborly mantra, Millie’s offers a free scoop to patrons who support Harris Grill as they recover from fire

If you live in Shadyside – and you heard the helicopters buzzing overhead this morning – then bear with us as we share some sad news: Harris Grill suffered a fire this morning.
“The first floor is burned out,” says Alex Fruzynski, a co-owner for some 15 years here at the Harris Grill in Shadyside. Appears second, third floors have less damage, he says.

We aren’t entirely sure of the extent or cause of the fire, but this is understandably a difficult moment for the team at Harris Grill.

And now, for some good news: Millie’s Ice Cream (Harris Grill’s neighbors at both their Shadyside AND Downtown locations) sprung into action this morning.
Living by the ‘be a good neighbor’ mantra, Millie’s is asking their customers to show support by dining out at one of Harris Grill’s other two locations: Harris Grill Downtown or Shiloh Grill in Mount Washington.
Bring your receipt from either location and Millie’s will hook you up with a free scoop of ice cream.

Alright, Pittsburgh: it’s time to rally and spread some love, Millie’s style. • Our long-time friends and Shadyside neighbors, @harrisgrill, suffered a debilitating fire last night. A fire of ANY size is crippling to a small business, so while they assess their damages and plan their next steps: it’s time for us all to pitch in. • Now through Sunday, get a FREE SCOOP at either Millie’s location when you bring in your receipt from either @harrisgrilldowntown or @shilohgrill in Mt. Washington. Show this company some real love when they need it most by stopping in for dinner, taking your pal to Happy Hour, or grabbing takeout for lunch – then bring us the proof, and: bam, free ice cream. • See how easy it is to #spreadlove? • Tag a friend to join you at one of the Harris locales this week, and be sure to follow all of their accounts for updates on fire damages and what we know will be a much-anticipated reopening. ❤️
