Pittsburgh Trip!

For my birthday, M and I drove to Pittsburgh for just 24 hours! It was a whirlwind trip, but we had so much fun. We stopped at Primanti Brothers for sandwiches. After lunch we walked around the Strip District for a bit and then walked up Penn Avenue to Fort Pitt Block House, located inside Point State Park. The museum was free so we did a quick walk thru and learned a lot of about 15th and 16th century American history.

We tend went to Roundabout Brewing for a flight of their beers. All were very good but the lingonberry ale was the real standout. Then we headed to the Duquesne Incline for some stellar views of the city.

We ended the evening with drinks at the Butcher and the Rye and then dinner at Meat and Potatoes. One the way home, we stopped at Ikea – and get this – stuck to the list! Hard to believe, I know! It was a great little getaway!

When we got home, we went for dinner and to see The Stray Birds at Natalie’s Coal Fired Pizza. A truly stellar weekend!
