I drove up from Virginia for an interview today in Pittsburgh and plan on spending the day in Pittsburgh tomorrow. I already plan on going to the Pirates game tomorrow night, but what would you all suggest I do before the game? Any restaurants close to the stadium worth going to? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Try Jerome Bettis' place 36 Grille. It is on North Shore Drive near PNC park.

You can go to Primantis. That's a very popular place in pittsburgh. Also, Jerome Bettis' Grille 36 is right next to PNC. You can also see the Andy Warhol museum on the north side, if you're into that. There is also a lot of good restaurants at Station Square. You could go to the waterfront and eat there or go to dave and busters. You could go to point state park downtown, across the river from heinz field. You could go to McKees Rocks after the game and check out Club Erotica, it's a personal fav hangout of mine.

I wish someone would open a bicycle rental business at Point Park. I think it would be a huge success.

There's one that is near the Allegheny County prison, not sure how well they do. It appears most people have their own bikes.

Thanks for the info! That's such an out of the way place for office workers wanting excersise during lunch.

It must be new because I could't google anything a few months ago.

I think the OP would enjoy riding a bike around Pittsburgh on a Saturday!

Tourists would rent bikes. I know lots of office workers who would rent bikes during lunchtime. We talk about it.

Even though I have my own bike, I certainly don't want to lug it downtown everyday. Our building management doesn't permit bikes being taken up to the offices. If there was a place I could safely store my bike, I'd keep it downtown all summer.

Even though I like riding bikes, I'm not a cyclist. I'd never commute with my bike. It's just too far and the weather is too unpredictable for my liking. I'm a busy person and I need a fast commute, but I can carve out plenty of time once I'm downtown for the day.
