Last call for brunch tickets! Fries and shine on Sunday and join us for brunch. Don’t worry, brunch runs from 10 am to 3 pm, so sleep in if you want. Just in time for the warmer weather, the folks behind Pittsburgh Sandwich Society, are opening an outdoor space next to Take Aht, their home base in Lawrenceville.

We are partnering with Pittsburgh Sandwich Society and Dancing Gnome to throw a Sunny Side Up Brunch on Sunday, May 19.

For $10 you get…

  • A brunch item from Pittsburgh Sandwich Society
  • A beverage from Dancing Gnome

The catch – you MUST buy your tickets by Friday at noon. Buy your tickets HERE.

Insider scoop: So you’ve bought your brunch ticket for Sunday, but what are you going to do on Saturday morning? The Bloomfield Saturday Market opens for the season and we’ve got a guide to the market complete with breakfast advice from someone who has been serving coffee there for years.

Beer of the week: Good Eye Sniper @ Spoonwood Brewing (and see our event for Friday night, the new Fresh Fest beer collaboration should be on your radar)
