In this digital world, every business should have connections with local photographers who have their finger on the pulse of social media
Alphabet City, which opened on the 14th of January, 2017, is a bookshop, restaurant, and performance space. The bookshop is curated by the City of Asylum, and features the largest collection of work produced by exiled writers in the world. The restaurant is a New York style wine and cheese bar, but with affordable prices (I shouldn't need to say much more).
There are SO many marvelous shops and artists Pittsburgh. How could I ever fit them all into one post? Well, I can't.... but I'm going to try! Here is a list of shops that will help you find holiday gifts in Pittsburgh this year!
When the folks at JORD Watches reached out to me, I saw an opportunity. A beautiful watch - such as the ones JORD makes - can really enhance a photo. I'm using this JORD collaboration to share some of my favorite Instagram tips and tricks.
The real story behind this post: Grant and I were tipsy, impassioned by our love of Mixtape, and started writing the follow list on my phone..... while still in the bar. It took us under 2 mins to come up with everyone below.
The shop is delightful! Even if you aren't buying anything (good luck with that!), just walking around will fill you with cheer! Spanning two rooms, The Farmer's Daughters is filled with tubs and tubs of fragrant flowers. They also have a ton unique trinkets and jewelry that you won't find elsewhere (see: enamel pins in the shape of a negroni).
The company works by pairing travelers with a local in the country that they are traveling to. The locals listens to their travel preferences, and curate a personalized trip, packed with insider tips, and off the beaten path locations. Ergo, you get a local giving you personalized recommendations before you even touch down in the country.
On the Yelp page for Cop Out Pierogies, multiple people state that these are the "best pierogies in Pittsburgh." Well, I don't want to stir up any controversy, but I - as a human entitled to my own opinion - must agree that these are pretty damn good.
A theater's biggest competition these days is not other theaters, but a customer's own living room. In the age of streaming, it is very difficult to get people to leave their homes. This is where the Waterworks has stepped up their game.
For the record, there is a huge difference between visiting a place and liking it, and actually imagining yourself living and working there.
