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!

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.

Nostalgia Overload at Pinball PA in Aliquippa

Sometimes all we want is a little bit of nostalgia.

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

On a hot summer day we wanted to get out of the heat and relive our childhoods, so we made the drive out to Aliquippa to get our fix of retro arcade heaven.

Bella Bambini Cello – Flavorful Alcohol Infusions in Pittsburgh

Pittsburgh's alcohol scene is growing at an incredible pace, and over the last few years we've been fortunate to have many breweries, whiskey distilleries, rum distilleries, and even a vodka distillery open and call the region home.

One alcohol style we have not been fortunate enough to have is an infusion producer. This all changed when Bella Bambini Cello opened its doors in Coraopolis in late 2017.
