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 the perfect way to ring in the holiday season.
2. joy of cookies tour
I am allllllll about shopping local. This year I've decided that every gift I purchase will be from a Pittsburgh-based shop. And The Joy of Cookies Tour is the perfect opportunity to cross everyone off my list! I have a entire blog post about this event on the way. Stay tuned!
3. nationality rooms
I might be slightly bias because I'm a proud Pitt grad, but the Cathedral of Learning Nationality Rooms are an absolute must-see during the holidays. The decorations are gorgeous!
4. butterwood bake consortium
Cake cake cake! *Insert Rihanna chorus* The Butterwood Bake Consortium is a dessert cafe that sells cake and pie by the slice... and rumor has it sipping chocolate! AKA the most chocolatey hot chocolate of all time. Enough said.
Because it's important.
6. The Hip hop nutcracker at benedum center
Fun fact: Growing up I LOVED dancing. I took classes at my hometown studio, was in Show Choir for 6 years, and choreographed several performances for my high school dance team. I have such an appreciation for art of dance, so I was stoked to see The Hip Hop Nutcracker was coming to Pittsburgh. Tickets are purchased!
7. bob's garage
Bob's Garage is a TOTAL dive bar, but it's a dive bar that's decked out in Christmas decorations. Sign this little elf up! Cheers!
What else should I add to my list this year? Drop me a comment below!
