Searching for a hot neighborhood in the Steel City? Popular Pittsburgh blogger Lindsay Patross of IHeartPGH.com offers three recommendations: downtown adjacent East Liberty (recently profiled in The New York Times), South Side, and Mount Washington.She recommends a few hangouts, too. The Shadow Lounge in East Liberty offers live music, poetry readings, and African dance, among other events. OTB Cafe (OTB Bicycle Cafe), located in the South Side mixes bikes, beer, and “bloody good food.” Redbeards Bar and Grill in Mount Washington, offers an outdoor patio and fans devoted to their chicken wings.Read up on the city before you move to Pittsburgh, or, to suss out where you’d like to live next. Patross recommends checking out local bloggers Joe and Betsy.com. She also recommends FoodBurgh and Franktuary for notes on the food scene and Should I Drink That for craft beer recommendations around the city.
