Newsletter: A vegan breakfast sandwich and a Hazelwood historian

Plus, a skatepark in Swissvale and all the local hard seltzers

by Lindsay Patross | October 23, 2020

This week’s unseasonably warm weather inspired us to round up the hard seltzers made at Pittsburgh breweries. We’ve also got a new documentary about a Pittsburgh skate park that looks very different from others.

We’re spotlighting a super spooky shop for Halloween decor. Tune into our podcast this week to learn about the oldest house in Pittsburgh (it’s about to reopen as a bar/restaurant). We’ve found a vegan breakfast sandwich. Need an escape? The hometown and final resting place of Lucille Ball is just 2.5 hours away.

Have voting questions? We’ve got answers.

For JaQuay Edward Carter, history is not just about preserving the past. It’s about progress and the future of the community. Tune in to hear from this Hazelwood historian and catch some fun facts, including one we learned this week about August Wilson turning to his local library when school just wasn’t the best fit.

Know of a local business with a story to share? We’d love to hear from you!
