One of the best things about living in Pittsburgh, in my opinion, is the easy access to all of the things a big city has to offer.

Pitt-starter is our occasional series about local crowdfunding projects on websites like Kickstarter. You can see our past Pitt-starter posts here.
Pittsburgh artist and author (and DJ) Matthew Buchholz is running a Kickstarter campaign to fund his new Pittsburgh Alternate Histories Book, “Pittsburgh in Olden Times.” Buchholz published Alternate Histories of The World in 2013; the book is available on the Alternate Histories website and Amazon (pro tip – if you order the book from the Alternate Histories website you will receive a signed or personalized copy from the author).
Not familiar with the book? You may have seen some… Read the rest
Regardless of if you are brand new to Pittsburgh or a life longer yinzer, Urban Hike is a great way to learn about a city neighborhood. For over a decade a group of faithful volunteers have been mapping and researching routes around different Pittsburgh neighborhoods.

East End Brewery’s Brewpub is a very family friendly space, so this is a great event for the kiddos, too.
