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. My summer Yelp review was written hours after my visit to Superior Motors  and now that I’ve had time to marinate what better time than ever…

Happy Mon(Daé) 017

We all know why there’s no such thing as a Monday Funday trend because Mondays are hard! Life is all about perspective and Monday is the start of a new week with new opportunities. I’m not saying Monday is the new Friday by any means but they don’t have to be the enemy. 412 Fresh…

Style & Glam Hosts Model Competitions

Some people discover a void in Pittsburgh’s cultural scene and move elsewhere in search of that thing. Jamyce Patterson is not that person. She saw a disconnect in Pittsburgh’s model and fashion scene and in the spirit of not thinking small Style & Glam Pittsburgh was born. She’s hosted shows and molded models through her…

412 Fresh: Waterfront Eats

The Waterfront in Homestead is so well thought out that you don’t have to leave the area for anything. There’s a grocery store, multiple retail shops, a movie theater, a retro candy shop, and restaurant after restaurant. You could go to a different restaurant every day for a week and still not hit all the…

412 Fresh: Munchin’ in Market Square

I’ve seen Farmer’s Markets, dance classes, igloos, art installments, yoga classes, and even a small concert take place in downtown Pittsburgh’s Market Square. The very landmark refuses to be boxed in when it comes to function but people can agree on two things. The location is beautiful and you will not starve in Market Square…

Thrival Festival Survival

Thrival Festival 2017 isn’t until next month but the excitement is real now! The price of tickets are sure to go up soon and with acts like Wiz Khalifa, Logic, Kiiara, and Kyle tickets are sure to go fast. September 29th and 30th Swissvale’s Carrie Furnace will be jam packed with fans from all over…

412 Fresh: Things to do Before Summer Ends

Although it’s been feeling a bit fall-ish outside, summer is still here to stay. Pittsburgh is full of outdoor adventures and it’s important to soak it up because once winter comes we’ll wish we spent more time doing summer things. Here’s a few more adventures you must take before the summer ends. Attend a Food…

Smallman Galley: The Wingman for Restaurateurs

There is nothing small about Smallman Galley. Even when its jam packed with Yelpers crowding around the bar for a drink it still feels like enough space. Yes, Smallman Galley in the Strip District has an impressive wine and cocktail list but that’s not what makes this unique venue so special. When visiting here you’re…

Happy Mon(Daé) 015

A new week means a new chapter and new opportunities for successes and failures. I may be a little exhausted but that never stops me as I run on optimism and caffeine. Fierce the Runway was fabulous last night and I can’t wait to get founder Jaymce Patterson’s entire story. Until then cheers to the…

Want Fries With That?

When you’re in Pittsburgh you do as the Yinzers do. French fries aren’t just a side dish here they’re sometimes the star! Sure you can be basic and just get Potato Patch fries with everything on them at Kennywood but there is so much more to Pittsburgh fries than just that. Here are some of…

4 More Food Trucks in the 412

Some food trucks don’t brave the winter cold, so with warmer weather comes more food trucks! Pittsburgh food trucks are popping up left and right. I’ve tried some great ones like Mac and Gold’s Rosemary garlic fries on top of their golden mac and cheese to Cool Beans funnel cake fried cannolis. It’s been more…
