Local Spotlight: Full Pint Brewing in North Versailles

A full pint of Full Pint's "White Lightning" Belgian White

Walking into Full Pint Brewing, located off of Route 30 (near Rivertowne), I wasn't quite sure what to think. I've read plenty about the craft beer they produce and how great it is, and visiting the brewery and the pub has been on my Summer to-do list for some time. However, I was kind of thrown by the location and nature of it, in a good way. The brewery and pub are tucked away on the hillside and kind of difficult to see from the road. Walking up to the warehouse, all of the garage doors were … [Read more...]

A Chill Evening with Zac Brown Band at First Niagara Pavilion


This past weekend I attended the Zac Brown Band show and it was the first time I made the trip out to First Niagara Pavilion to see a concert. Strange to think, I know. I was a little apprehensive, I've heard plenty of horror stories about what a pain it is getting in and out of there and most of them were true. I actually got lost going out there and took a detour, plus the traffic just getting to the point where you can get lost is trouble in and of itself. But once you get past the fact … [Read more...]

The “Yinz”-ternship: Commonwealth Press, Knit the Bridge, Nathan’s Hot Dogs, and more

Just in the past two weeks we stumbled upon the Nathan's Hotdog Eating Contest in Pittsburgh (Market Square) for the regional qualifier for the 4th of July competition in Coney Island. Nathan's Hot Dog … [Read more...]

“Ian Watches” PGH Movie of the Week: Adventureland


This is the inaugural post of what will hopefully become a weekly event. Basically I watch movies based or filmed in and around the Pittsburgh area, give a quick spiel about the movie, and display all of the Pittsburgh locations shown in the movie. That way, if you so please, you can visit said locations and say, "Hey, Batman was on this sidewalk!" If that's the kind of thing you're into. Also for those movies filmed in Pittsburgh, but not set in Pittsburgh in the movie's plot, I will reveal the … [Read more...]

Concerts in Review: Edward Sharpe at the Arts Fest plus Local Natives at Stage AE

Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros at PGH Arts Fest

Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros at PGH Arts Fest Friday, June 7 Pittsburgh was treated to some West Coast music flavor the past few days as multiple Los Angeles-based bands made their way through the 'Burgh. Starting with last Friday night's 2013 Arts Fest Music featured act Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros. The ten-member troupe made their way onto the Dollar Bank Stage at the Point to a roaring crowd. While past Arts Fest shows have been relaxed and inviting for audience members … [Read more...]
