The 2018 Hustle Her Way Summit Dropped Gems

The Hustle Her Way Summit can’t be labeled as conference. Conference is an understatement as at a conference you stay and listen and the information you’ve gathered from it probably never leaves that venue.

Neighborhood Watch: Braddock’s Rising

I wasn’t born to see Braddock when it was booming but I plan on sticking around for the rebuild.

LeMont Pittsburgh: Dinner with a View

LeMont has always been on my list of Pittsburgh restaurants to try but I had been putting it off for fear that it was too fancy, expensive, and parking would be a headache. A recent Yelp event proved two of those three things wrong (the decor is fancy and I absolutely love it). LeMont has…

412 Fresh: Superior Motors

Superior Motors taught me a valuable lesson. Never write a restaurant review the same day as your visit because great food and experiences stay fresh in your mind forever.

Some people discover a void in Pittsburgh’s cultural scene and move elsewhere in search of that thing. Jamyce Patterson is not that person.
