Definitely. The Southside after dark is awash with drunk college students and all that entails.
Which, to the original positer, might be very exciting!! It's definitely a riot and there's always something new to see or experience, but hip? Not so much.

Yea, I have to agree. My ex is a fashion designer and couldn't WAIT to leave Pittsburgh. He still calls Pittsburgh's "fashion sense" Attrocious and appalling.
I personally don't see the sense in hanging your net worth in your closet!

No pun intended? LOL.

Yeah I'm not thrilled about Pittsburgh fashion, trust me, but to hate a city or chose a city based on that? That's pretty much the most shallow, idiotic, thing I've ever heard in my entire life.

UNLESS, it's your industry and you are trying to make a living.
rofl.

In fact it is his industry. However, even saying that, I still agree with you. Me, I'm ALL about comfort, and I believe the man makes the clothes, not the other way around.

EVERY time we'd go out, he would make me check and see if the person who jut bumped into him had burned his clothes with a cigarette. Then there was the candle wax that was blown all over his Prada suit at his birthday party. I thought I'd have to call the paramedics! lol

The OP might like that Sushi restaurant in Shadyside that had a dance floor in it. Sobe maybe? It was usually pretty trendy. I can't remember the name or if it's even there anymore...

Thank you! I couldn't remember the name. Is it still a trendy spot?

I'd say so. With the exception of Mad Mex, most of the other Big Burrito restos (Kaya, Casbah, Umi, Eleven) could be considered trendy.
