Tuesday, May 8
On this trip, the driving time is short and the stops are real Pittsburgh treasures. Whether you grew up in near the Three Rivers or if you’re a transplant, there’s something for everyone on our foodie bus. Get ready to learn about (and taste) the ethnic food of the steel mill workers and their families, enjoy a light snack in one of Homestead’s newish eateries, sample a bubbly treat in the Strip, visit our area’s oldest and history filled (oh, and simply stunning) hotel for lunch, tour the Burgh’s new, hot destination (Wigle Whiskey) and more. I’ve worked to dig up some fascinating culinary history tidbits about Pittsburgh.
The tour leaves from the Pump House near The Waterfront in Homestead. Very little walking is involved.
Date: Tuesday, May 8
Time: 9 AM until approximately 4 PM
Cost: $125, which includes transportation, all meals, samples and entrance fees.
To make a reservation or for more info, email Mary at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 412.576.1755
Seating is limited to 18 and just a few seats remain.
Hope to see you on the 8th!
A food adventure might be sleuthing out the juiciest June strawberries at a farm market, learning about gone but not forgotten area food treasures, working with a chef during a hands on cooking class or touring Pennsylvania’s artisan cheesemaker’s farms (and meeting a few cows along the way) . . or any of a zillion other fun ways to explore foodie things within a day's drive of Pittsburgh.
