    I would call the ticket office, they will be able to help you best in terms of where is best for you sit. Hope you get to go and they pull out a win for you.

    Entrances to all sections are at the very top. I have seats in Row D in the 200s and have a decent trot to get to them. If there's a break in the action and isn't a commercial break I don't have enough time to get to them.

    You forgot Brew Gentlemen. I know it's out of the way and nowhere near the rest but worth it. BG and DG are the best and in a class of their own. Then Grist/Hitchhiker. I haven't been to Strange Roots since the change.

    Anyone know of an open hockey or rental they can get me into this weekend? Staying downtown and looking for a skate.

    Making out bi-annual trip to Pittsburgh next month and going to see the Pens take on the San Jose Sharks. (Looking for tickets to the game, if anyone is selling.. Is there still a ticket exchange thread?)

    We'll be there from Thursday to Saturday. We're looking for recommendations for things to do on Friday.
    - Thursday we'll be driving there (from Philly) and going to the game in the evening.
    - My wife LOVES sloths, so I am surprising her with a sloth encounter at the Aviary on Saturday and then we'll make our drive back after.

    So that leaves Friday wide open, we've been to the Warhol museum and the Pittsburgh Zoo, what else are must do touristy things in Pittsburgh? Preferably on the cheaper side as I already dropped $$$ on the Sloth thing and will need to buy hockey tickets.

    Thanks in advance!

    Side Note: We don't drink, so bar recommendations wont do us much good :)

    Dinner here.



    https://www.eat-gaucho.com/

    But no reservations taken, so arrive before 4:45 pm or be prepared to wait a long time. They are closed on Sunday too.

    If you like Museums (we do) the Carnegie is very very good. The sloth which the public sees who was born last year is named Vivien by the way.

    The incline to Mount Washington is not the most exciting thing, but it is the image most associated with Pittsburgh.

    Are you vegan or vegetarian?

    I'm not, but I do enjoy both vegetarian and vegan dishes though if you have recommends for that.

    There was someone on this board that would ask for suggestions but would then leave out the fact that they're vegan. :laugh:

    B52 in Lawrenceville and Apteka in Garfield (or maybe it's Bloomfield) have some pretty good vegan food.

    But if you're up for meat, go to Gaucho like @Jaded-Fan suggested.

    And if you like breakfast diners, check out Pamela's and get their hotcakes. They sell like hotcakes.

    I actually do not eat meat, but do eat fish and GP is great for that as well.
