I was getting a little worried that Pittsburgh had more Groundhog Day celebrations than Mardi Gras celebrations. Penn Brewery to the rescue. I was lucky enough to visit a fellow Pittsburgher in New Orleans for Mardi Gras a few years ago, before the flooding. It was definitely the biggest party I have ever attended. Mardi Gras, like Groundhog Day are holidays that need to be celebrated. So head on over to Penn Brewery for bead, beer and good music. I love the Boilermaker Jazz Band (check out the picture of the band performing in New Orleans) and I can only say good things about Dixie Doc and the Pittsburgh Dixieland All-stars. Dixie Doc (aka Dr. Paul) was actually my doctor when I was little. I just love that he has this great band that performs often around town.
