Sad News

So I am really sorry to all of my awesome followers, but this blog is discontinued.  Sadly, I’ve moved from Pittsburgh to Indianapolis. :(  I will miss Pittsburgh SO much, and it will always be my home and my all time favorite city.

I may still update occasionally - probably with pictures of the Burgh or updates after visiting, but it won’t be nearly as often (as you can probably tell, I haven’t updated in a LONG time since we moved two months ago).

The Arts Festival started this weekend, guys!!  This is one of my favorite summer events in Pittsburgh!!  

The local art, the music, the food, the sunshine.  It’s an absolutely gorgeous weekend/week to check out the Arts Festival!

Here’s the schedule of events to see whats happening when, but you really don’t need a schedule - just head downtown, explore, and have fun!  

I’m not sure when I’ll be able to get down there since this weekend is so busy.  I’m hoping I’ll be free this afternoon/evening, or possibly sometime this week.  It’s on until the 12th so I’ll definitely find the time!!  

These pictures are from last year’s festival during Ingrid Michaelson’s concert - isn’t our city gorgeous! :)

Sarris Chocolate

Sarris chocolate was one of those things (along fries on salads and chipped ham) that I never realized was specifically a “Pittsburgh” thing until I moved away.  And now I seriously ask myself, what do people do without Sarris chocolate in their lives??

And if you are really a die hard chocolate/ice cream person (like me) then you have to go to the Sarris chocolate place down in Canonsburg.  From the city, take 79S down to Exit 45 (Canonsburg), and it’s only a couple turns from there (511 Adams Ave).  

This place was seriously like a wonderland for me when I was a kid.  We didn’t go very often, but when we did it was just THE most exciting thing ever.  I hadn’t been there in years and years when we went a couple weeks ago, but it’s still a pretty cool place.  And their ice cream is just awesome.

The ice cream parlor part is on the left (if you’re looking at the building from the outside) and the store/where they sell all the delicious chocolate treats is on the right.  I think it’s just fun to go look around, and I usually have to get a chocolate covered pretzel because they are just so good.  Also their ice cream sundaes and all their homemade ice cream flavors are amazing.  

WARNING:  Their ice cream sundaes are HUGE and are really meant for two (or three) people to share!  I ordered one and didn’t realize how big it was going to be.  I barely got halfway through it.  And I’m always one to eat A LOT of ice cream. :)

Here’s a nice MAP so you can get there.  511 Adams Street, Canonsburg, PA 15317

Hours: Monday-Saturday 9am-9pm, Sunday 11am-9pm

It just doesn’t get any more Pittsburgh than this.
Primanti Bros, I.C. Light, the city skyline, and the Pirates fumbling through another game (though we did win!)
