There's really something special about Christmas in the Burgh. From community events to holly jolly dive bars, here's what's on my agenda this season.
1. Taste of lawrenceville: Miracle on 41st street
What could be better than food, brews, Christmas trees, and Santa Claus? Miracle on 41st Street is going down in Lawrenceville on December 2nd and it's a great way to ring in the holiday season.
2. joy of cookies tour
This year I've decided that every gift I purchase will be from a Pittsburgh-based shop. The Joy of Cookies Tour is the perfect opportunity to cross everyone off my list.
3. nationality rooms
I might be slightly biased because I'm a proud Pitt grad, but the Cathedral of Learning Nationality Rooms are an absolute must-see during the holidays.
4. butterwood bake consortium
The Butterwood Bake Consortium is a dessert cafe that sells cake and pie by the slice... and rumor has it sipping chocolate! Cake and hot chocolate... enough said.
Because it's important.
6. The Hip hop nutcracker at benedum center
I have such an appreciation for art of dance, so I was excited to see The Hip Hop Nutcracker was coming to Pittsburgh. Tickets are purchased!
7. bob's garage
Bob's Garage is a dive bar, but it's a dive bar that's decked out in Christmas decorations. Every inch. It's worth stopping in.
What else should I add to my list this year? Drop me a comment below!
