24 Hours in Pittsburgh















It was a quick trip to see our daughter Megan, but it was so much fun, all packed into twenty four hours. We started the visit with a trip to the North Shore on Saturday night that included margaritas, local beer, football and a little bar hopping. There were a lot of New England Patriot fans in town for the game versus the Steelers the next day and the crowds were lively, big and friendly at all the bars.

On Sunday, we had a wonderful breakfast at a quaint restaurant near their apartment and then ventured back downtown to do a lot of walking and see the sites. It was a beautiful day and the views from Mt. Washington and along the riverfront were especially pretty. Since all that walking made us thirsty, we stopped in my favorite part of the city; the Cultural District, for a drink at another fun bar.

Before heading home, we had a late lunch at The Church Brew Works, a Catholic church that had been converted into a restaurant and brewery some years ago. It was definitely a unique atmosphere with the pews converted to restaurant seats, the stained glass windows intact and the brew works on the former altar. The in house brewed beer was delicious and my authentic Pittsburgh pierogis were some of the best I've ever had.

Megan is happy in her life there, she and her boyfriend were wonderful hosts and we will definately be back to visit before too long - it's a great city to spend twenty four hours in.

Happy Monday!
