Pittsburgh Magazine: Best of the ‘Burgh 2019

We already know that Pittsburgh is the best city there is, right? But what are the best things to do in our city? Lucky for us, Pittsburgh Magazine posts an annual issue “Best of the ‘Burgh” that answers that exact question and delivers ‘best of’ in categories you might not expect (how cool is “5 Best Diners Where You Could See Rick Sebak” – he’s like the opposite of Jim Cantore – if Rick’s there you want to be and I know that because FOGO). keep reading
