On one of the first warm days after what has been never-ending and cold winter, we got to go outside and take our dog to the dog park (in our case the Highland Park Dog Run). And thank goodness we got to go out; our little dog has been chomping at the bit after being limited to short walks. The dog park was super muddy, which made it even more fun!
Our adventure was your pretty standard with a long classic game fetch; i.e., we throw a ball and our dog, kind of, brings it back.

We love beer, and so we were happy to have been invited to the PGH Beer Blogger Dinner last Wednesday on December 6th.

One of the many good people that I have gotten to know through writing a blog about Pittsburgh, it Scott Smith, owner of East End Brewing. The tagline for East End Brewing is “Buy a Good Friend a Good Beer.” Not only does East End Brewing make some good beers, but they quietly do lots of good stuff for the community. Last Christmas, when I was working with lots of other good Pittsburghers to deliver literally thousands of toys in time for Christmas, Scott sent a tweet offering to lend a hand. Within hours, he showed up with truck, pallet… Read the rest
