A few weeks ago I was sitting at my desk putting together a list of things to do – or trying to put together a list of things to do in Pittsburgh for the weekend. It was right after Christmas and there was no Steelers game that weekend so it was a little challenging. There is always something to do in Pittsburgh but we try our hardest to write about NEW things to do in town and that can occasionally be a challenge.

Recently I was chatting with a friend about Kellie Maize and her newest video which is all about Pittsburgh.

Just because the super bowl is over doesn’t mean we can’t continue to share in the glory of all things black and gold. And win or loose – Pittsburgh still had an awesome time getting ready for the super bowl.
