An Ode to Pittsburgh

Pittsburgh! The Iron City. I refer to it as home. But, some people refer to it as the armpit of America. A certain rich man’s magazine rated this city the lowest on their charts. Their main reasoning was that we were a city filled with mullet heads and that our night life sucked. Though I agree that Pittsburgh could be a better city. They obviously did not take a good look at the place. What we lack in quantity we make up for in quality. This city is small but it’s vibrant.

OK granted, we have yokels who use words like "Yinz", "Gum Band", and "Dahntahn". Granted, Downtown Pittsburgh closes at six o’clock besides the "Smithfield News" and Porn Shops. and yes, there is construction beyond necessary requirements.

However, during the day the place is crawling with all sorts of happy go lucky stuff such as music at Market Square, Art Festivals, Shopping frenzies at the strip district, and boat rides on one of our three rivers. But, if it’s night life you really want, don’t focus on Downtown Pittsburgh. On the outskirts of the city we’ve got posh nightclubs, a good theater community, comedy clubs, and a dinner & movie themed waterfront. And if none of that tickles your fancy you can always bar-hop in southside where you can drink and drink and drink and drink and drink until you forget you're even IN Pittsburgh!
