19 Sep

It’s time for football again!! Tailgating, fantasy leagues, watching the game with friends, or going out – however you celebrate the season, you know it’s important to have a good selection of food and libations on hand. We checked in with Yelp to get their latest user survey of good places to cheer on the Black & Gold, and here’s what we found. Where do YOU go to watch the game?

If you’re not from Pittsburgh, don’t fret- we’ll be hunting up some good sports friendly spots in other cities soon!

Throw a flag, already.

It’s that time of year again, sports fans. The time when bars are packed with those who bleed black and gold. The Steelers are back in action, and this week, we’re tackling the big question of the season: Where yinz catchin’ the game, n’at?

You won’t miss a second of the action at Industry in Lawrenceville: “The walls are lined with flat screens, and the bar is encircled.” Jamie J keeps her pre-kickoff cool with “house-infused cucumber gin” and a $3 IPH or Copper Ale. Amy C does her athletic supporting at New Amsterdam. Looking at their “enormous projection screen, it’s almost like being at the game, but with better food, like bad-ass, super-tasty, hot-‘n’-juicy burgers.” During the “glorious time of year when both the Pens and Steelers are on multiple TVs,” Jenn T “sits around with fellow Yinzers” at Nico’s Recovery Room, “one of the finest dives around.”

South Hills is slammin’ with sporty action. Amanda L is surrounded by The Saloon‘s 15 TVs and 21 “seasonally rotating” taps. Continuing with the numbers game, Carson City Saloon offers DJ J “over 20 beers on tap and specials during the game,” like a bucket of Coors Lights for $11! Meanwhile, Mel Upulls up a bar stool to chat craft beer and dem Stillers” at Smokin’ Joe’s. Careful though. With over 350 bottles and 61 drafts, you could… go… all… the… way… overboard!

In the East End zone? At Hough’s “everyone is into the game and cheers, which makes for an awesome atmosphere.” Alexandra Z is equally pumped about the “ridiculous beer selection: 300+ bottled beers and 60+ drafts,” score! Will H is all about the odds, and he finds his chances of taking down “wings and a beer” are high at Buffalo Blues. They’ve got, taps 32… to down… set! Hut! Hut into your mouth! Jarrett H thinks Sharp Edge is A-OK all of the time, but on game day, “something magical catapults it into” a palace of pig skin. Half-off pizzas and $.45 wings, plus a $5.50 black and gold beer seals the deal! Here we go, Steelers!

It’s almost time for a weekend of disguises, family, friends, shivers, and of course some tasty treats!

If you’ll be in the Pittsburgh area over the coming Halloween weekend, the following list, courtesy of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, is for you!

Events range from haunted houses to pumpkin carving, with a wealth of museum, lounge, and bar Halloween offerings in between. Whether you’re looking for kid-friendly fun, or trying to plan a Halloween evening out with friends, there is an option (or ten) for you. Take a look, and feel free to add your own suggestions to the list!

HALLOWEEN

Get ready to get spooked as the both good ghouls and bad come out to frolic for Halloween.

With roots in the Celtic harvest festival of Samhain and the Christian holiday All Saints’ Day, the modern Halloween is a secular holiday that takes a light-hearted look at witches, ghosts and other creatures. In 2011, Halloween falls on a Monday.
