  • ... that Gullifty's, a landmark Pittsburgh restaurant known for its desserts (pictured) and as "the city's premier jazz club, mostly by default", closed in 2013?

  • Symbol confirmed.svg Length, date, and compliance with policy check out. Suggested fact is interesting and verified by provided citations. ALT1 is strongly preferred (less is more). As a small note "landmark" is an opinion and perhaps should be dropped from the hook, although I am personally fine with it. I will leave that decision up to the promoter. --ThaddeusB (talk) 03:21, 29 January 2014 (UTC)
BTW, A picture is available under appropriate license if desired:Dessert at Gulliftys (2656943853).jpg --ThaddeusB (talk) 03:33, 29 January 2014 (UTC)
Symbol confirmed.svg Thanks ThaddeusB, but there aren't enough spare characters available in ALT1 to add the picture and something about dessert. The nominator has no problems with either hook being promoted without the image. - tucoxn\talk 05:31, 30 January 2014 (UTC)
ALT2:... that Gullifty's (dessert pictured), a landmark Pittsburgh restaurant known as "the city's premier jazz club, mostly by default", closed in 2013?
is 145 characters (and I suggest "landmark" could easily be dropped as well). In any case, of course the hook is equally approved with or without the picture. --ThaddeusB (talk) 22:14, 30 January 2014 (UTC)
Symbol confirmed.svg Please excuse me for editing your comment but I just called your suggestion "ALT2". The promoting editor should note that all three options are approved as written. I am not in favor of dropping the word "landmark", as the building is indeed a landmark for Pittsburgh-area residents and this is cited in the sources. - tucoxn\talk 21:23, 2 February 2014 (UTC)
