Some of Pittsburgh's best flavors — everything from fresh fish and fine chocolates to locally crafted white whiskey — can be found in the Strip District. But God knows, it can be a pain fighting for a parking space on Saturday morning.
So why not beat the crowds and do a little sampling tomorrow afternoon?
Those who partake in Neighbors in the Strip's "Stroll the Strip" culinary walking tour on Nov. 29 will get to savor the season's flavors at several popular Strip District businesses, including Luke Wholey's Wild Alaskan Grille, Mon Aimee Chocolat and Wigle Whiskey, which on Dec. 15 will release its first batch of aged whiskey.
Tickets cost $50 (or 2 for $75) if purchased by 10 a.m. Thurs, or $65 at the door. If you'd rather just party at the after-party being held from 7 to 9:30 p.m. at Cruze Bar, 1600 Smallman St., that's okay, too -- it costs $17 and includes refrehments along with dancing to the live music of the band Random Play. You can buy tickets to either event here.
The wallking tour begins at 5 p.m. at two locations: Marty's Market, 2305 Smallman St., and Pittsburgh Public Market, Produce Terminal at 17th and Smallman streets. Or, save your energy for eating and take the circulating double-decker bus between locations that's being provided by The Pittsburgh Tour Company.
All proceeds benefit NITS's programs and services.
