The Roxian Theatre is a Stunning Music Venue in McKees Rocks

We always love hearing about theaters that have been restored to their former glory, and the Roxian Theatre in McKees Rocks is just that.

This theater space originally opened in 1929, and over the course of time closed and sat empty. In recent years the theater underwent renovations before opening its doors for performances in early 2019.

As soon as we heard about this, we naturally had to buy tickets and ended up getting in to check out a performance by the Aquabats and Reel Big Fish shortly after the theater opened for business.

Sewickley Heights Borough Park is a Great Off-Leash Park to Explore

Sewickley Heights Borough Park is a large, 1,000-acre park located about 25 minutes west of downtown Pittsburgh that offers numerous trails to explore for those who want to get out in nature.

But what makes this park one of our favorites is not the trails alone, but rather the fact that it is open to off-leash roaming with your furry friend!

1905 Eatery Review – Classic Italian Food in McKees Rocks

1905 Eatery is a casual, old school Italian restaurant located in McKees Rocks. What the spot lacks in ambiance it makes up for with huge portions of classic, home-cooked Italian food.

McKees Rocks wasn't on our radar as a dining destination, but we recently checked out a show at the Roxian Theater and were looking for a nearby spot to have dinner, and so we ended up at 1905 Eatery.

Seasonal Pierogies at the Holy Ghost Byzantine Catholic Church

We first had pierogies from the Holy Ghost Byzantine Catholic Church at the Pittsburgh Pierogi Festival. We had heard the glory of the church's famed dumplings, but never quite made it happen until fate intervened and put us all at the same festival.

It was truly love at first bite.

When we visited the church's table at the festival they were handing out cards for their Christmas pierogi sale, and we knew we would have to return to buy more- and that we did!

Local Shopping and Dining Options at the Pittsburgh International Airport

The Pittsburgh International Airport has been reinventing itself in a number of ways in recent years. One aspect of these changes we absolutely love is that the airport is embracing the local scene with the addition of many local vendors, restaurants, breweries, and distilleries into the mix.

As we love to visit these before taking flights out, this guide to local dining and shopping at the Pittsburgh airport was born!

D&G Pizza Review – Ohio Valley Style Pies in Beaver Falls

Beaver Falls is located about 45 minutes northwest of Pittsburgh and is a charming little community home to Beaver Brewing Company, Geneva College, and a Buttermilk Falls (one of many so named waterfalls in the state) to name a few.

During a recent visit we were in the mood for something to eat, and were directed to D&G Pizza right next to the brewery for a few slices to enjoy with our beer.

Their preferred cut? Ohio Valley style pizza made famous in the region by the likes of Beto's and others.

Thankfully, when the nostalgia fix we seek involves old school video games and pinball machines, Pittsburgh has just the place- Pinball PA.
