    Haha this is great, especially Chris and Anna and Pittsburgh! I’d add in a visit to the Children’s Museum. It’s the best!

      I agree! Gotta love our favorite man in a cardigan, Mr. Rogers! I also would recommend The Mattress Factory (Andy Warhol), visiting the Carnegie Museums (especially hang around Carnegie Hall before a show and watch all of the beautifully dressed people going in), and strolling around the University of Pittsburgh – when growing up, my aunt would take me on a “ride” up and down the elevators at The Cathedral of Learning. Fun times!

    <3 this! Good picks. Sunday brunch at the Zenith is a mmmmmust! http://zenithpgh.com/brunch-menu/ If you're in the Oakland neighborhood, dinner at Spice Island Tea House is phenom. Oh, and go to Gooski's for beer and a giant basket of fries. Basically, there are a lot of good places for good food!

      I agree with brunch at Zenith! Yummy food + Vintage shopping in the store part = WIN!

    LOL, that salad was hilarious. Probably pretty tasty! That railcar ride was fun! When I went to Pittsburgh, I took way too many pics of me riding it. The other people riding it were using it as transportation. I think they thought I was losing my mind :)

    Love this city! I’ve been on that incline before :) I’ve heard it said that Pittsburgh women were once voted to have the best legs in America, because of climbing all those hills!

    Hooray! Pittsburgh (so glad Dippy the Diplodocus had a cameo :D)! There’s a great view of Oakland from the thirty-somethingth floor of the Cathedral of Learning, and I can’t pass up my french fried-salad <3

    I spent my entire undergrad education in Pittsburgh. I think you missed the fantastic Fuel and Fuddle sweet potato fries, Dave and Andy’s Ice Cream and Primanti Brother’s steak sandwich in Oakland!
