24 Things I’ve Accomplished Before 30

I’ve been told that I have so many stories to be so young. I’ve looked to several other bucket lists for things to do before I’m thirty and quickly came to the realization that, “been there done that” is a straight up mood. Observations like this is why I no longer participate in games of…

Happy Mon(Daé) 21

It’s one of those Mondays where everyone should get a gold star for existing. The Pittsburgh gloom isn’t making it any better, our roads are holding on just as great as our motivation, but cheers to a positive and productive week ahead and pushing through every detour. 412 Freshness There’s so much positivity happening in…

Seat Yourself at Federal Galley

What’s better than going to one yummy restaurant? Going to four under one roof is the correct answer. And just when you think that there’s no way the peeps at Smallman Galley can outdo themselves, they did! Federal Galley is located at Nova Place and it’s just as cool as its location and bigger than…

412 Fresh: The Best Bites of 2017

2017 had awesome moments and very delicious treats.  As someone that is eating my way through Pittsburgh (and elsewhere) I had to reflect on the best flavors 2017 brought with it.

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…

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…
