Mexican theme, tacos galore! This place has good drinks and their food is super delicious! Right down in the cultural district, for a night out it's a great spot to start your night of bopping around the nightlife scene downtown on Penn Ave between 9th and 10th street.

Hands down the best breakfast/brunch spot that I know of in Pittsburgh. Fresh ingredients, creative menu, great coffee, and afterwards you can stroll the rest of Butler street in Lawrenceville and find out what all the hype is about! *Not a greasy spoon so prices are a little above average than the famous Pamela's, DeLuca's, etc. Also, if you come back a hipster I can't take the blame for that.

If yinz don't go here, everyone you tell about your trip to Pittsburgh will ask you if you had a Primanti Bros sandwich and if you say no, they are going to wonder why they are even friends with you. Believe me when I say you shouldn't need to eat for the rest of the day, but it's just one of those things you gotta try once! Or you could not - and say you DID. I think this is the original location, but don't quote me on that. There are several others as well if you want to try squeezing it into your existing plans elsewhere.

GREAT Bar and Restaurant located in Market Square - downtown. This spot has legit patio seating and for all you sports fans (if you're not a Steelers, Pens or Pirates fan then you don't count), this place has more TV's than you can even imagine. HUGE Tv's! YUGE!!

This place is a hidden gem! Located right along the river, tucked back in Washington's Landing next to the boating dock, this place is only good for about 6 months out of the year. The patio seating is really the best part of going (not to say their food isn't good, but it's not THAT good that you want to freeze your butt off or sit inside and totally miss the view anyhow). Besides, they may not even be open during the winter months - who knows! Google, probably. Sometimes they even surprise you and have a little jam band outside under the string globe lights, in which case you really can't think of anywhere else in the world you'd rather be. Highly recommend!

Great option for delivery pizza! They have ginormous slices that are bigger than your face, but it's not all novelty...the pizza is actually really good too!

Drinks & Nightlife
This place is located right up on Shiloh Avenue, next to Grandview Ave (where the lookout is). The staff is great, the atmosphere is the best on Mount Washington, low-lit and cozy yet fun because they have an entire corner filled with board games, great music, and their cocktails are incredible. I highly recommend the Old-Fashioned, they use fresh muddled orange and those new fancy purple cherries, the big round ice cubes, I mean come on!

Incredible atmosphere, great drinks, and the food is super good also.... if you can get a table. I can tell you with almost certainty that all their bartenders wear suspenders and they almost ALWAYS have a beard. Be sure to check out the upstairs bar to get the full effect.

If you love craft beer, you'll love this place! I don't actually know that. I've never been to a brewery, but I assume the people that like them like them all? Plus, Southern Tier is the maker of PumKing which I happen to know is delicious!

If you aren't familiar with Jack's bar... this is Jack's bar. Jack's bar is a well-known dive down in SouthSide, they play loud music, have pool tables, their bartenders have been there forever, and you will most certainly hear "jagoff" and "yinz" more times than you'd ever thought possible. You know.. the good stuff. Tell them I sent you, though I'm sure they won't remember me from the last time I was there 8 years ago (that explains why I'm so bad at pool now). Also, for all you guests who like to crack one open at sunrise, you can do that here. They open super early!

Best place to get turnt and let your hair dahn! This is the type of place you'll probably end-up meeting your future spouse but then you'll both have a pretend story because you won't want to admit where you met due to your likelihood of getting a divorce in 5 years being drastically higher than the average bear that met at like... Frick Park. For the love of God please don't break anything when you get home ;

Parks & Nature
Frick park has it all! Hiking/walking trails, playgrounds, tennis courts, etc. It is huge, so do a little research before you head over. We favor the "Blue Slide Park" playground specifically as it has a built-in slide on a hill that kids whiz down on a cardboard slab (there's usually lot's of them laying around). This place even has a dog park

This museum never gets old and I've been there at least 5 times. The life and times of Andy Warhol is so fascinating, and the museum is totally cool. Highly recommend! Small parking lot on sight, I believe it's $6

So this place isn't necessarily a museum, but rather a large educational vessel for Pitt University that is a pretty great spot for checking out some fascinating architecture and history. Each room on the first floor (I believe it's the first floor), has a different theme with very authentic design. This is one of those places you could spend 20 minutes or 4 hours. If you're in the area it's definitely worth checking it out! * This is the super tall building in Oakland that you can see from almost everywhere in Pittsburgh.

To be completely honest... I've never been here. But their Instagram follows MY Instagram and I'm honestly flattered. SO many of my guests have raved about this place. It's known for being a quirky and fun... museum? Gallery? I'm not sure but you'll want to look this place up if you're into fun and artsy experiences

Great stop for kids of all ages! Educational and fun, exhibits such as Laser Shows, Roboworld, Mini Train Village, etc. Located next to some of Pittsburgh's hot spots such as Heinz Field, PNC Park and Rivers Casino you can find some great restaurants within walking distance to grab a bite after.

A handful of some higher-end stores including Sephora, Apple, Banana Republic, etc. This is a great activity for any day you're trying to do a little shopping and/or poke around some cute cafe's and shops, have lunch. Steel Cactus has great food, and the nightlife on Walnut street definitely exists for mostly the young professional crowd and beyond

I love Ross Park Mall because it has a lot of high-end stuff that you can't just find anywhere in addition to all the typical mall stuff. The Nordstrom is large, they have Lululemon, Michael Kors, Express, Burberry, etc.

This is a lovely church located up on Grandview avenue. This is the church that overlooks the city and is lit up at night, super visible from PNC Park and Heinz field. Whether you're looking for a place of worship or just want to check out some architecture, check this place out! Unless there's a wedding happening, that would be awkward.
