WATCH: Meet the “Very Local Game Show” and look for us at Open Streets PGH this weekend.

DRINK: Did you know you can take the T straight to Mindful Brewing? Yes, really. We’re recommending you make the trip and sample the Straight Kolsch.

BIKE: This weekend is the 2nd Open Streets PGH of the summer. The route runs from Downtown to Lawrenceville. Streets are closed to cars and open for pedal powered fun. We’ve got a block-by-block guide of some places you might want to stop at along the route.

SAVE THE DATE: We are celebrating Christmas in July. Decorate your bike and join us on July 21 for a bike tour of 5 local breweries. Tickets are $20.

KENNYWOOD IS OPEN: We’ve got the inside track on visiting Kennywood. Here are 15 things to know before you visit the park.

DIVE RIGHT IN: Yep, it is hot out there. Cool off in one of the many pools around Pittsburgh. We’ve got a guide to all of the swimming pools in Pittsburgh to help you maximize your pool time.

SAMPLE SALE: Reminder! This weekend is the big bridal sample sale in Sewickley. We’ve got the details on the three local boutiques that are teaming up for a big sale on dresses for the big day.
