Default What to do in Pittsburgh?

Heading to Pittsburgh with a buddy to go see Green Day on Wednesday and wondering if there is anything I must do while there. FYI - we are staying downtown. Heard the Primanti Bros was a place to stop. Anything else fun around downtown?

The first thing that I would do once I got to Pittsburgh would be to leave.

Went for a baseball game a few weeks ago. We didn't get to see a lot of the city but what we saw we loved. The strip district is where it's at. That's where Primanti Bros. is (although we had ours in the stadium).

I'd totally recommend catching a Pirates game if you're into that sort of thing. It isn't consistently the top-ranked MLB stadium on accident.

I did hear the strip district is happening. We are only going to have a few hours to go explore before the concert, so catching a game is out.

Then eat. Given the opportunity, that's what I would've done.

it as kind of by accident, but i saw the Primanti Bros on the Travel Channel the other day. The original one is the one in the strip area, so that's the one we'll be hitting up.

any places to grab a local micro brew near there?

Yep. Hit Primanti's in the Strip. Go get your micro...............but also try a good old Iron City beer. It'll round out yor trip to the 'Burgh and it ain't bad beer, either.
