About an hour from Pittsburgh, the Christmas spirit is alive and well. See why this Western PA town is the Christmas Tree capital of the world. Or head over to Westmoreland County to check out another drive-thru holiday light display.

Speaking of the holidays, this week in beer we chatted with a selection of local beer enthusiasts and asked them: “What are you guys gifting one another this year?”

Our shop local guide isn’t just for the people; it’s for the pets too! Here’s a look at 10 pet gifts available now at local businesses. We’re back with another installment of the Yinzer Shopping Network, this week we take a look at the best Pittsburgh books and games.

Chatting with Local Artist Oreen Cohen on The Slaw

We’re continuing to spotlight Pittsburgh makers on our podcast, “The Slaw: Staying on Top of Pittsburgh.” This week, we chat with artist Oreen Cohen about large-scale metal sculptures and working in all types of different mediums.

Cohen exudes a sense of place and storytelling in her various pieces of work, which includes some stunning public art sculptures. Her recent installation at Wightman Park in Squirrel Hill was a collaborative effort with the community and with her business partner, Alison Zapata.
