Summer is here (unofficially), the pools aren’t open – yet, but there here are a few ways to get outside and explore the city this week(end).

LOCAL x GLOBAL: NORTHSIDE

We’ve partnered with Blue Sparrow to create a locally inspired sandwich. Blue Sparrow is known for cooking up globally inspired cuisine. (ICYMI – here is our video profile of Blue Sparrow’s restored 1960s Greyhound bus.)

 

THE SANDWICH: Kielbasa, house kraut, mustard and hot pepper cheese pressed sandwich seared in kimchi butter.

Join us at Allegheny City Brewing on Saturday, June 1, grab your ticket and get this special Northside sandwich and an Allegheny City beer for $12. (Tickets)
